An afternoon of good food and good memories at Figaro Coffee Sto. Tomas, Batangas

This Mommy Blogger is a food and travel blogger wannabe, so whenever there is a chance for me to travel and dine at the same time I would go for it no matter how far.

Braving the hot weather and the undying traffic from Cabuyao, Laguna all the way to Sto. Tomas, Batangas; I together with my youngest who is four years old, visited one of Figaro Coffee Company's branches in the south. Well, you may wonder why that branch when there is a lot in the metro - because I want to promote more business establishments, attractions, traditions and culture at the Southern part where I came from.

We left Cabuyao City at 12:30 and we reached our destination by 3:00 PM. If you're coming from the southern part of Laguna, the best and most efficient way to reach Sto. Tomas Batangas is to commute to Calamba City thru a jeepney (P19.00) then from Calamba City terminal, ride another jeepney going to Tanauan City, Batangas (P23.00). Sto Tomas comes after Tanauan so to make sure, I asked first the dispatcher if the jeepney will reach Sto Tomas public market which is the nearest landmark to Figaro.

I discovered that Figaro sits on the first floor of The Lifestyle Strip, which is along the highway of Sto. Tomas. The exterior and interior of the store are spacious and on the inside, there are nice chairs, tables, and comfortable couches for the customers to relax and dine. The interior is cozy and cool and well decorated with memorabilia and framed photos.

Before I reveal the hearty meals we ate, let's have some trivia first about the store. The name Figaro actually was a song from the Opera : Barber of Seville. It was widely recognized in Italy and in Europe which is why a lot of customers often associate Figaro as an Italian restaurant or an Italian-owned establishment, but no - it's proudly Filipino. The concept is Italian but the menu is a combination of Filipino and Italian dishes. Figaro was founded in 1993 and its first kiosk was in Glorietta. Currently, Figaro Coffee Company has 90 branches worldwide and growing.

So what did we order for snacks? I guess we were really starving due to the long ride and heat we experienced on the way so we had these for our big apetite : Magandang Umaga Platter, Gourmet Embutido, 5 Cheese and Garlic Pizza, and Banana Caramel Blast for refreshment.

Hearty meals for Bunso and I - spell APETITE!

Being a heavy breakfast eater, I got curious of the Magandang Umaga Platter which is composed of batard baguette, scrambled eggs, smoked ham, sausage wrapped in bacon, potato wedges and slices of tomatoes and cucumber.

Figaro's Gourmet Embutido is interesting because it is made of chicken. It is so tender and flavorful because it was cooked with a mixture of 12 rich ingredients. Each plate is consists of 4 slices of chicken embutido, with hard-boiled egg, and fresh lettuce, tomatoes, and cucumber.

My little one requested for a pizza and he chose Five Cheese and Garlic Pizza, which is a perfect blend of mozzarella, parmesan, cream cheese, pizza cheese, sharp cheddar and flavorful garlic sauce. My 4-year old boy ate half of the whole pizza. It's really satisfying.

For refreshment, we had Banana Caramel Blast. The combination of banana and caramel is perfect for the hot weather. It can also serve as dessert.

My little one and I really had a great bonding moment at Figaro with the sumptuous dishes we shared. I hope to try more of their dishes such as the Salads, Crepe Roulades, Sandwiches, Pasta and the Figaro Classic menu.
Aside from good coffee, family and friends can always share good food and great memories at any Figaro Coffee Company. From sun up to sun down, every member of the family can always have something to enjoy from their kitchen from hot and cold drinks to pasta, pizza and rice meals, even great-tasting desserts.
