It truly is such a delight to see how Malolenos are now keeping up with the trends of time. With all the food businesses sprouting here and there, can’t help but get excited each time I see one that truly pass my standards.
Nope. Not trying to sound hard-to-please… it’s just that, once your little one comes into the picture, your selection tend to become more limited…
This one here, had us at hello! Beans and Blossoms Cafe is literally a head-turner, it caught my eyes while driving on my way to Barasoain Church located in the heart of my beloved hometown, Malolos City.
At last, a coffee spot in the City of Malolos where you find it all in one stylish, independent place: Beans and Blossoms (BAB) Cafe in a glance gives you decent coffee and food (especially if you are a pasta and pizza lover); a safe hangout spot with or without kids; perfect meet-up, chill-out place with your friends; it can be your second workspace, yes you can bring your laptop and enjoy wifi access here for free (well, as long as you dine-in); it can be a meeting place with your clients or colleagues, I encourage my friends from the pharmaceutical and sales industry to try out this place; you can also bring your family over for dinner and try their best sellers!
Aside from their very calming and relaxing indoor space where you can enjoy a full coffee shop experience, they also have a spacious outdoor space, and a very spacious second floor, which is also open air. The best part of it, at least for me, is that it has a little play corner for kids. So, basically, it answers my need for a place to quietly work (aside from home) while my daughter have a little fun time too. It has a parking space but is quite limited to 3 cars, however, the owner says that there are nearby establishments in the area that allow free parking at night.
Enough of the blah- blahs. Here’s why we are all eyes,
ears, nose, tongue in this newly found happy place. Allow my photos to tell you the story.
Be ready to take photos in every spot that you see in this one-month-old cafe. It is designed to please your visual senses too.
Now, let’s go to my favorite topic… FOOD!
Owner-Chef Ralph Canta says in preparing the dishes that they serve at BAB Cafe, they make sure that every ingredient they use is of high quality, fresh, and nothing is processed. He took time to tell us the story behind their best-selling ALIGUE PASTA or what they call in their menu as Crab-a-holic Pasta. It was a long story, so to cut it short, he met this uber-hardworking supplier of good quality aligue, and he chose to support him over those commercially available supplies of crab paste. Fair enough, I’d probably do the same being an advocate as well of #supportlocal. Need I say, the aligue pasta is my TOP PICK!
Chef Ralph also told us that Carmi Chicken Sandwhich is an old classic family recipe, named after her Aunt (his business partner) who came up with it. We tried to force Chef to share us their family secret but we failed, boo-huhuhu! Carmi Chicken Sandwhich is my #2 PICK by the way!
Now, my third PICK is not yet officially on their menu, well, the name is there but technically they have not introduced it, so, we, the Bulacan Bloggers, actually, were among the lucky few who were able to personally try it first. Talking about the Luscious Cheesecake! We couldn’t believe that chef Ralph still says he wasn’t so happy about it yet, because, dang! it was sooo good, or something might be wrong with our tastebuds?
