528 Ilawod is undoubtedly one of my favorite cafes in the city for various reasons. Excellent coffee, fantastic service and their passion (no pun intended) for innovation. They are never afraid to try new concoctions or meals or dessert. You may not find them written on the menu but a friendly chat with the ever-amiable staff or the owners can end up to a wonderful gastronomic journey.
Like this pound cake and hot and cold tea made from passion fruit or mirinda or what I call The Mirinda-lan set.
PASSION FRUIT COLD TEA
This refreshing passion fruit cold tea is perfect to start your afternoon merienda. Well balanced tartiness and sweetness cleanses and prepares your palate for more flavors ahead.
PASSION FRUIT POUND CAKE
A seasonal dessert, this will surely satisfy your sugar cravings. The loaf is densed and the passion fruit glaze on top is both tart and sweet. This is best paired with…..
PASSION FRUIT HOT TEA
Its aroma blending well with the pound cake is a delight, perfectly complimenting each other.
Definitely a perfect mirinda-lan.
All these are available af 528 Ilawod Cafe located at the ground floor of SM City Legazpi and at their main branch at Brgy. Ilawd, Daraga, Albay (and soon at SM City Sorsogon). I via Bicolano Man
