FRO-YO Craze in Town

Are you in or are you out? For figure conscious and health conscious peeps, this is your best dessert this summer! It's like eating ice cream without the guilty feeling and with so many health benefits.

Well, I havent tried most of the popular frozen yoghurt in the market. The one's I've tried are from RED MANGO, White Hat and those from STOCK MARKET. There are other names like Golden Spoon, Gurtz, I Like Berry, California Berry, etc. I promise to try them one of these days and then give my verdict.

For now among those I've tried, RED Mango and White Hat got my taste buds highest approval. The tanginess and the sweetness are in perfect blend and any choice of toppings are just secondary. I know I love it when after finishing each servings, I crave for more :-)  It's just too bad I don't have my cam that time to share some yummy shots.

Last Sunday, I had the chance to check Stock Market at Bonifacio High Street and try their froyos with my sisses. (Mia, we can still do our froyo hunting anytime with our other friends :-P)

We ordered among the frozen yoghurt combination, The Anti Oxidant, The Bomb and The Brunch Combo. Interesting names, huh! ^_^

Called the Anti Oxidant, it has kiwi, blueberries and strawberry toppings for 180 pesos per serving.

This one is named Brunch Combo with Granolas, Strawberry and Mango toppings for 180 pesos as well.

The BOMB is how they call this, with Bananas, Walnuts, Biscotti and Caramel Syrup toppings that costs 200 pesos.

Among the three combos, my favorite is The Bomb. I believe the caramel syrup and bananas helped in neutralizing the sour taste of the froyo and the crunchiness of the walnuts and biscotti added more texture.

I'm still on the hunt for the best tasting froyo in the market which comes to mind the freshest yoghurt I've ever tasted in the country that can only be found by traveling 12 hours to reach the mountains of SAGADA. It's not frozen, but who needs to freeze them when you can have them naturally fresh while eating them in the cool climate of Sagada. I sure miss this place :-)

Special Treat from FIGARO

I've been a fan of Figaro's coffee and pasta dishes eversince and in my opinion the coffee house that serves the best coffee in town that is 100% locally grown, way better than Starbucks! You would normally hear me order my staple favorite Iced coffee and Pasta ala Carlo, that combination really tasted good!

Anyway, the special treat from Figaro that I'm talking about came in a form of  SmartConcept Card that I bought for only PhP399. It's actually a discount card that has almost 600 pesos worth of freebies and a lot of buy one take one offer good for dine in and take out orders. The card is valid until Dec 31, 2010 but I dont think my card would reach that far considering, I frequent the place very often :-)

I treated my sisters and used this card last Sunday lunch and what would normally cost me 700 pesos Figaro only billed me 229 pesos. Isn't that a treat? ^_^

Their Iced Tea is also the best! The SmartConcept Card has 2 free ice tea. I now consumed one.

This is one of their new ala carte meals, Dory Provencal worth 199 pesos that comes with an ice tea or coffee. You can choose the kind of pasta sauce you want, this one is Pesto. The pan fried cream dory fillet infused with provencal sauce is really tasty.

Another ala carte meal is this Chicken ala Kiev for 229 pesos. The classic chorizo pasta sauce is a revelation, first time to try and I like it a lot as well as the stuffed chicken, really yummy! This offer is under the Buy one Ala Carte meal with drink and Take one Ala Carte Meal with drink and just pay the one in higher value.

Those who want to avail of the card can call Smart Concept at this customer hotline (02) 470-1554/1556

Figaro is one of my happy place. I normally go there by myself to read, relax and have a good meal.
