This was our last stop for our Maginhawa Foodtrip. We just came from BRGR PROJECT prior to this so we wanted something light to end a day of continuous eating and pigging out. I specifically chose this coffee shop because they have the quirkiest and most colorful interiors. I also love how they have some sort of sakura theme going on.

They also have a lot of stuff on sale that actually blended well with the whole vibe of the place. It was a visual explosion it almost felt like too much after a while.

I was able to take pictures of some of the signs they got painted and displayed all over the store. I wanted to take home the “Umulan Rouge” one. Witty!

I almost don’t wanna write about the food and drinks because to be honest, they really weren’t that good LOL. But they looked cute enough so I’ll just post the pictures haha. The coffee was good, though. It tasted like it was freshly brewed. It also helps that they serve it in such dainty little cups with bejeweled stirring spoons.

Would I go back? Most probably not. LOL. But if you just wanna hang out, drink potent brewed coffee and smoke some sticks; their outdoor sitting area is a perfect spot. And you will never run out of things to look at.

The Iscreamist’s frozen s’mores were very interesting and entertaining to eat (read more about it here.) After getting our fill of liquid Nitrogen, we trooped out of their cozy shop and decided to kill some time by walking around the area. Luckily, there’s a small park just a few steps away. The kid in me became giddy as I sat down one of the swings. Childhood memories came rushing back in.

After quite some time, the real kids started to arrive and we hesitantly made way for the kiddo’s playtime. As if on cue, I saw a vendor sitting under a mango tree. As far as my blurry vision could tell, he sells mango and jicama halves. I’ll have one of that, please! 🙂 Sour and very tangy mango half, topped with a generous dollop of sautéed small shrimps that was a perfect mix of sweet, salty and spicy.

After that little detour, we made our way to BRGR Project. Upon approaching the restaurant, you are greeted with a quirkily designed alfresco seating area. The outdoor chimney is like a promise of customized burger goodness waiting inside for us to partake in. The indoor decorations have the same theme – burger ingredients written all over the walls.

Above the counter area was a huge arrow lit up American diner style. BRGR Project allows you to fully customize your burger according to your liking. For the less adventurous or for those who just can’t be bothered, you can choose from their signature burgers handwritten and displayed in a huge board. All their toppings and sauces are also laid out in the counter. Drool worthy!

We decided to split two burgers among the four of us and got additional two orders of fries done two ways – plain and topped with Mexican chili and cheese. I do not remember what was in the other burger, but my burger (which we dubbed “Angel’s Burger” as a joke) had fried portobello mushrooms in it. THEY WERE DIVINE! I love mushrooms in general but those were just battered and deep-fried to perfection.

Not pictured were our drinks – soda for the boys and homemade iced tea for me. Their iced tea is ~imported~ from their sister company, PINO Restaurant.

I would go back to BRGR Project again if only to get more of those fried portobello mushrooms LOL. I am hooked! 😀
