Last year, my buddy Jeeves brought some Real Coffee Calamansi Muffins for me and Joko to taste.
It was love at first bite. Calamansi has always (and probably will forever be) my favorite citrus fruit and I like desserts but I’ve never really been a fan of anything too sweet!
So when my friend Argel said he’s going to Boracay, my auto-reply was, “Calamansi Muffins!!!”. Being the good person that he is (or being the nakakaawang patay gutom that I am), he came back to Manila with these quickbreads that I craved for almost a year!
Real Coffee & Tea Café has been around since 1996. It’s in White Beach, Station 1 and it’s open from 7am to 7pm. That is, according to the blogs I checked. :p
I have not been to Boracay yet so I don’t know exactly how to get there. I just googled and unfortunately, the directions I gave Argel are if he’s coming from the beachfront. Eh hindi. Gaaaaah. Kawawa naman. Nagkaligaw-ligaw tuloy. (Sorry! Mwaaah! Fistbump!)
I called the store and they told me that coming from the main road, at the Milflores gate (in front of Metrobank) is a small walkway that will lead to the café.
Another thing that one ought to know is, boxed muffins should be reserved a day in advance. If not, you can have the muffins put in a paperbag. A calamansi muffin costs 45php. The paperbag says it’s made with love…
Well… Nalasahan ko naman!!! :p
I had it with a Starbucks Caramel Frappuccino. The soft, zesty muffin and the creamy sweetness of the drink… Panalo!
Aprubado rin sa mga pinatikim ko sa office. Kahit doon sa mga hindi mahilig sa maasim. All agreed that it goes very well with sweet and creamy coffee.
So to friends who will be going to Boracay, kindly take note of what pasalubong I want. I promise to also get some of these little pieces of dessert heaven for you when I finally have my Boracay vacay. :o)
