Gourmet Treats from Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf

I have a confession to make - I am not big fan of coffee shops. Sure, I do visit coffee shops from time to time. But only when I want to enjoy caffeinated drinks and usually order them on-the-go. Call me a cheapskate but sometimes I'd rather have coffee at home. But if there is one coffee shop that I love to frequent, it's Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf.

The pricing of their drinks and dishes might still be higher in Davao City standards, but they make it completely worth the visit. Read on to find out more about Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf's gourmet offerings that deserve a return visit.

Greek Salad (PhP 175)- This is a true Mediterranean treat filled with all flavors and ingredients that remind you of the Mediterranean cuisine. This colorful salad comes with a mix of lemon vinaigrette, fresh tomato slices, cucumber slices, olives, and lettuces, together with generous chunks of feta cheese. Apart from the minor issue of this being a little salty for my liking (due to the liberal serving of feta cheese), I would gladly order this salad again when I visit Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf. The serving is also humungous, which means that it can be shared by two.

Roast Chicken & Mushroom Fusilli (PhP 235)- If I would be dining out and not in the mood for a rice meal, a pasta dish is a must. Like the Greek Salad above, this pasta dish is not inexpensive but totally worth the price given the size of the serving. This pasta recipe is also created with subtle but rich flavor starting off from the shitake mushrooms and shredded chicken. The rich cream sauce coats every bit of the fusilli pasta and finished off with bell peppers to add some depth into the flavor.

Double Chocolate Original Ice Blended (PhP 165 for regular, PhP 185 for large)- This refreshing ice blended drink is a dream for a chocolate lover like myself. It is prepared with a rich and creamy double dose of chocolate powder together with coffee extract, non-fat milk and ice. Hence, you get to experience double the amount of chocolate goodness that quenches the thirst at the same time.

Chicago Cheesecake (PhP 125 per slice) - Arguably, this is one of the best cheesecakes I've had. The price per slice might be higher than what you'd pay for but they do give you a generous slice. The only downside is that one slice just isn't enough..

The beauty of Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf's menu is that it consists of high quality gourmet offerings without any mask of pretension. Their menu offerings might not be the cheapest, but they certainly make up for it by offering the freshest and highest quality ingredients. And that for me is all that matters!

Visit Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf at their branches in G-Mall The Peak, SM City Davao and Abreeza Mall.

New York Style Chicken BBQ Pizza from S&R

During the lenten season, S&R introduced the limited edition Tuna Margherita Pizza for those who would like to join in the observance of the Lent without sacrificing their urge to enjoy good quality food. Last May 1, 2014, S&R introduced yet another addition to their delectable treats at the Food Service section - the all-new New York Style Chicken BBQ Pizza.

Calling out all pizza lovers out there, this is a must try. If you have tasted S&R pizzas before, you should know what to expect and then some. The pizza dough is topped with a rich, slightly tangy and sweet BBQ sauce along with a thick layer of melted mozzarella cheese. Then, you get huge chunks of chicken tenders that come off with a smokey flavor and aroma. For added dose of flavor, the pizza is also garnished with green bell peppers and onion rings.

The liberal amount of toppings used on this pizza ensures that you can get every piece of the topping with every bite. It is a powerful blend of flavor that satisfies even the most discerning palate. For this reason, you can enjoy a pizza that is filling but not too heavy. The chicken tenders topped in the pizza are in itself worth the try!

Make sure to visit S&R Membership Shopping to enjoy the new Chicken BBQ Pizza. It will be available until July 31st only so be sure to drop by before that date. You can order a slice for PhP 99 or the whole pizza for PhP 549.

S&R Davao is located at McArthur Hi-way cor. J. Rodriguez St., Talomo Avenue, Brgy. Ma-a, Davao City. You can also call them for inquiries at (082) 299-0909.
