First bite of the KFC Extra Crispy Chicken

It's the latest fried chicken variant of KFC.



True to it's name, the Extra Crispy Chicken is crispy on the outside; there's an audible crunch sound with every bite of the skin. Despite the crispy skin, the chicken remains juicy on the inside. The meat though is a little salty.

Try it and judge for yourself.

Quick sip of the Mahalo Mango smoothie

It's one of the new Fruit and Yogurt Smoothies of Jamba Juice. It is made with Greek yogurt, peaches, pineapple, and mango.



The combination of fruit flavors is delicious, amply vibrant. The slightly dominant taste is that of pineapple. The yogurt is the right subtle background for all the sweetness. Yum!

A Small cup costs Php 130.

Quick sip of the Chestnut White Chocolate Truffle Frappuccino

The base chocolate flavor is good and is well complemented by the chestnut syrup. But, to fully enjoy this flavor, tell your barista not to add Frappuccino syrup to the drink. Otherwise, the drink will be too sweet.



Try it and judge for yourself.

First bite at Nacho Bimby

Place: The counter is clean and organized. The color scheme is festive and attractive. The dining tables are spacious and the chairs are amply comfortable. The little cactus pieces on the tables add some cuteness.



Food: Generally good.



First dish we tried was the Labimbeef (Php 150). It's a nacho dish with the place's Signature Pulled Beef Brisket (braised meat, seasoned with Mexican spices), salsa, chips, and cheese sauce. The beef was tender and delicious, not too pungent, not too salty. The salsa and chips were of high quality. The cheese sauce had good consistency and wasn't too sharp.



The other item we tried was the Pollo Caliente (Php 150) that featured fried chicken fingers dusted with Mexican spices and served with a cheese dip. The chicken pieces were tender and perfectly fried. Again, nothing was too salty and too sharp. The mild flavor of the cheese dip complemented the spices of the chicken.

Price: Considering food quality, serving size, and taste, we found the fare reasonably priced.

Service: Service was prompt and waiting time was acceptable.



Nacho Bimby is at the cinema area of Eastwood Mall.

First sip of the Salted Caramel Mocha Crumble

A new drink from Starbucks. It's mocha topped with salted caramel syrup and cookies bits.



It's not good. It has a certain bitterness that is akin to medicine or cough syrup. Any distinct flavor is initial and fleeting. Then, the weird bitter taste takes over.

Try it and judge for yourself.

Quick bite of Kopiko Cappuccino Coffee Shot

It's a relatively new coffee candy variant from Kopiko.



The strong coffee taste is subtle. As the candy melts, a mocha-like flavor takes over, similar to the filling of Hansel Mocha Sandwich. Now, is that cappuccino? We don't think so.



Try it and judge for yourself.

Try it and judge for yourself.
