Book & Borders Cafe: Eastwood Branch Grand Opening!

Book & Borders Cafe Grand Opening 

November 26, 2016 marked Book & Borders Cafe's Grand Opening of its Eastwood branch. This is the third branch after establishing Tuscany, McKinley Hill, Taguig and Tomas Morato, Quezon City branches. The place is strategically chosen to provide nearby residents, office workers, mall goers, and even students a venue to relax and unwind. This is also a perfect place to read and study as the cafe offers books to read through while you enjoy a hearty meal with your family or friends.

The grand opening program started with a ribbon cutting ceremony led by owner Kristine Simisim, Francis Simisim, Megaworld's Kevin Tan, General George Ancheta, Benjamin Alves, Karylle Tatlonghari-Yuzon, Architect Paolo Grijalvo, and Harry Morris. This was followed by the blessing of the cafe.

But of course, live music was paired with special dishes carefully chosen for this celebration. Displays include hot chocolate, coffee, frappe, cakes and pastries, as well as rice meals.

Not in the display but I was able to try their Chocolate Cake and Red Velvet. Both are moist and not too sweet. I like the Chocolate Cake more for that rich chocolate cream topping.

Hot Chocolate (Php 120-140)

Pork Ssokugie with Kimchi Rice (Php 250)

I think it was Chicken Teriyaki that I've tried instead of this Pork Ssokugie. Chicken was tender and flavorful! Having these meals sets them apart from your usual cafe or coffee shop.

Tempura Rice Meal (Php 315)

I also get to try their Tempura. Sumptuous amount of shrimp covered in crunchy breading.

Book & Borders Cafe just proved that a relaxing and comfortable coffee shop ambiance can have a lot more -- more than coffees, teas, and pastries! That hobbies such as reading can be integrated to it. That all-day breakfast, rice meals, pasta, sandwiches, and more can be enjoyed with your loved ones in this kind of setup.
