Several weeks ago, I was invited by Annesy del Mundo to try Figaro’s new spoon meals. It wasn’t an easy decision to accept the invite because I have relatives who own franchises of Figaro and my review might become biased. In the end, I decided to give it a try and see where it goes.
I didn’t get to ask what “spoon meals” is but I’m assuming it means proper meals served in their cafe instead of the usual pastry which they offer. I got to try Chicken Thyme with Creamy Cheese Sauce (P215) and Chicken Ala King (P215).
I found the Chicken Thyme with Creamy Cheese Sauce better among the two. The chicken was deep fried and battered and the meal comes with buttered vegetables, rice, and a choice between iced tea or coffee. The chicken was tender and moist and the thyme gave the meal the added zing. Without the thyme, the meal would have been very bland.
Like the Chicken Thyme with Creamy Cheese Sauce, Figaro’s Chicken Ala King comes with buttered vegetables, rice, and iced tea or coffee. The chicken ala king was creamy with a hint of sweetness which I found a bit odd but pleasant.
I don’t know about the freshness of the ingredients but I’m really hoping that the vegetables are at the very least delivered to all branches every morning. I didn’t touch the buttered vegetables when I tried the meals because I was full when I came there.
If you’ve ever eaten meals at Figaro, the two are good additions to their current lineup. At the very least, they serve as a variety to Figaro’s staple pastas which, although they are good, becomes tiring after awhile.
The new spoon meals are available in most branches already. I think franchises carry them by now.
