If you guys have the time to visit Newport Mall any day from July 28 until August 10, you may want to check out the Coffee Creations event where coffee-lovers are guaranteed to have a grand time. You may also get to enjoy coffee-flavored dishes through Coffee Infusions, where limited editions of dishes and desserts are prepared by participating establishments. Here’s a look at some of them:
Bo’s Coffee Cheescake
I think my Mom would love Cafe Maxims’ Coffee Choco Macapuno Bread. It’s made from a sweet dough bread filled with coffee flavored custard, bits of chopped dark chocolate & strings of macapuno.
You may choose to try Johnny Chow’s Coffee Pork Spareribs with Tapioca, which is served with steamed buns and kimchi on the side.
How about going for Mr. Kurosawa’s Japanese Coffee Jelly Sundae? It consists of coffee ice cream with coffee jelly cubes, banana fritters, candied walnuts, tempura bits, caramel and crème anglaise.
One of the things I really want to try is Crisostomo’s Madrid. It’s said to be a chocolate torte with chunks of choconut candy mixed with a shot of espresso. Sounds good, right?
For those looking for something different, try Krazy Garlic’s Affogato Trifle, where the bittersweet layers of coffee jelly, meringue and whipped cream and ice cream are topped with a shot of hot espresso.
Red Crab’s Barako Cheesecake
Remington Hotel’s R-Bar Mocha Salted Caramel Mini Cakes
Remington Hotel’s R-Bar Mocha Poundcake
