Figaro has something in store for everyone this holiday season as they added a new roster of pasta dishes, pastries and a whole lot of gift packs for anyone to enjoy.
I had the chance to try them all in one of Figaro’s meet-up sessions at their Tomas Morato Branch. Figaro’s marketing and culinary team took the time out to prepare the dishes to bloggers having to try all of the new stuff for this Christmas.
The coffee company-turned-restaurant chain added three new pasta dishes: the Chicken Galantine Cannelloni (Php 189), Chicken Mushroom Cannelloni (Php 189), and Chicken Roulade Plate (Php 249).
Chicken Galantine Cannelloni(Php 189) Is made of Chicken galantine stuffed in cannelloni pasta with Provencal sauce.
Chicken Mushroom Cannelloni (Php 189) is a tasty ground chicken duxelles stuffed in cannelloni pasta with Carbonara sauce.
Chicken Roulade Plate (Php 249) is a special meaty filling stuffed in chicken breast fillet, breaded and fried to golden brown. Served with side salad and pasta choice of Arrabiata, Pesto, Al Tonno or Carbonara.
Among the three pasta dishes, I prefer the Chicken Roulade Plate the most. This is not to discredit the two other pastas. If you’re a red-sauce kind of a guy, by all means, try the Chicken Galantine Cannelloni – it is sure to tickle your taste buds pretty well and if you’re a white-sauce kind of person, then, try the Chicken Mushroom Cannelloni.
It is just based on my preference that night. 😉
On Figaro’s new pastries, they added Light Ginger Bread Loaf, Premium Salted Caramel, Fruit Loaf Mini, and Fruit Forest Cheese Cake.
The Light Ginger Bread Loaf (Php 55) is a combination of ginger, cinnamon, and spices to produce a light ginger bread flavor in a loaf. This pastry is for the more adventurous taste bud or for those who want to a hint of spice into your dessert.
The Fruit Loaf Mini (Php 70) is traditional seasoned loaf with glazed and mild rum flavor. This Christmas season, most people will definitely try this one, I am pretty sure that their money and effort won’t go to waste.
The Premium Salted Caramel (Php 70) specialty bar with gooey salted caramel filling, walnuts and rice crisp, topped with dark chocolate ganache is definitely a must try. Among the three pastries, this is what I would recommend to try out first – especially if you’re a sweet tooth like me.
Figaro Fruit Forest Cheese Cake (Php 135 / slice) Premium quality baked cheese cake infused with sweetness of mixed berries.
