? Total: P690
We finally had the chance to pursue going in this intimidating cafe in the middle of Parkway Drive. On the outside, it seems like there’s no one dining inside as the interiors were barely seen. We were so wrong, there was a lot of patrons dining and having their coffee inside. We were seated at the second level, a much bigger space than the first.
We ordered two drinks and saw a very tempting red velvet cake on our way up, so we got that one too.
Cold Brew Iced Sumiyaki Coffee (P200) – For everyone’s knowledge, according to their menu, Cold Brew process involves allowing of precisely-measured cold water to drip over medium coarse ground coffee over 8 hours. This produces a brew which is silky with deep coffee notes without the usual acidity. Mentore offers five different brewing methods – Syphon, Pour Over, Cold Brew, French Press, and Espresso. This cold brew is so far the best we’ve tried. Full disclaimer though, our personal array of cold brew drinks were not that vast, yet. We love the texture, the smoky taste and the smooth aftertaste. It would be hard to try other variants next time as we’d be having the same for sure.
Chocolate Chips Blended Espresso (P240) – milk chocolate bits blended with espresso, milk, and ice, topped with whipped cream and sprinkled with milk chocolate shavings. This drink was so thick and creamy, we appreciate the quality of the chocolate used as well.
Red Velvet Cake (P250) – moist red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting, red velvet crumbs and white chocolate strips on top. As mentioned above, we just saw this on our way up to the second floor on a little display fridge beside the stairs. We were tempted as it really looks so nice and the serving was big for a 250 peso cake. It was our best impulse decision ever. Lol. The cake was so good!
Value for money: Worth it! A great find on our fridate!
