The power of my | in my life lead me to get a CBTL ube cheesecake I saw posted here.

Kaso didn't like it so much. First it's so small in size na. It came in a very nice purple box, that could probably fit 4 slices. That's how small it is.

After taking a bite I remembered my last experience of not liking their cheesecakes anymore. I find it flour-y.

This cheesecake is topped with dried desiccated coconut. Barely tasted the ube too.

Oh well. Sayang. I still come here for the tea latte. But no more cheesecakes for me.

Original Vanilla Iced Blend. My favorite! 128514 It's awesome!

Lasagna. Cheesy and meaty! A bit salty for me but overall it's good!

I like the coffee bean amd tea leaf. If only they can serve coffee the way we want it. It's probably why we like starbucks more. We can have our tea or coffee exactly how we want it. 128522

Ordering the usual, coffee latte ,

Still never fail me, aroma & blend :)

The place is good to hang out with your pet because it's pet friendly, really friendly till pet allowed to enter inside and sit with you till the second floor & use the washroom as long as you clean it of course (and you must)

Wifi come for free for holder of Swirl Card :)

So I tried all main flavors of their Ice Cream inspired Ice Blended drinks (PHP175 up) and to my surprise, the Cookies & Cream made it to the top! It was just perfect, not too sweet but not bland. You can really taste the cookies (I have a strong feeling they used Oreos).

My problem with the Mint Chocolate Chip was the missing Mint flavor while the Pistachio had a strong after-taste.

I also ordered the Chicken & Mushroom Fusilli (PHP295) for my late lunch. It was just so-so. I would like to describe it as a good satisfying meal for a very hungry person. So there you go. 128517

*Disclaimer: All-in-one review. So no, I did not try the Ice Cream Blended drinks all at the same time! Ha ha ha!

My siblings and I were very lucky to get seats on the first floor. We usually go to coffee shops for two things: (1) outlets and (2) wifi. This place offered a lot of outlets and has very reliable wifi.

I ordered the iced mocha latte and liked it very much. To be honest, the bigger requirement for me is not exceptional coffee, but the fit of the place as a study/ work area. This branch satisfied our needs and offered a great place to study/ work.

It's much warmer at the first floor compared to the second floor. Also, the outlet to seat ratio is much higher downstairs. Thus, I situated myself downstairs.

The place was full several times throughout the afternoon. In our 7 hour stay there, I noticed balking 3 times. 3 groups of people decided to stay somewhere else because the place was full. Lost sales :(

That's it for now. Take care everyone!

Guiltless Chocolate Cheesecake 1285259786

I like how creamy and not so sweet the cheesecake was and if you like drinking tea, the genmaicha green tea drink is really good!!! 127861128076🏼

Chilled Spicy Chicken Pasta Salad FTW! This one never gets old. To this day, I think I can still eat this for 5 days straight.

I also ordered their pink guava juice for a change - trying to avoid caffeine. 128517 While it's refreshing, it was super sweet! I had to keep asking for water to dilute the sweetness of the drink.

Tried to look for a water container - found one, asked the server: "Sir water po ba to?" He nodded. So I poured. Out came MILK. 128529128529128529 "Kuya sabi nyo tubig!!!!" 128557 So my pink guava juice had a little bit of milk. Lol. Good thing I didn't pour a lot!

Back here again for the stamps. 128513 And wow, the service was really bad. It wasn't a busy day so I decided to have my me-time here and have a quick quiet merienda. Arrived at around 3pm and ordered one hot Genmaicha Tea and ordered one of the only bread available, tuna pandesal. It's 3:15 and the hot tea was already ready and waiting at the pick up counter but the pandesal wasn't. So I went upstairs again and waited. Its almost 4pm already, I went down to check and still nothing. Anyare? The barista might have seen the disappointment in my face that she offered to just bring my order upstairs. Another 10minutes of waiting and finally!! They made another tea as the one earlier was not longer hot. The tuna pandesal was way too salty and not warm anymore. So much for the quiet chill afternoon break! 128527

Since I was already able to complete the stickers for mommy's Starbucks planner, I started collecting stamps for a CBTL planner.

We would only either go here or in the stopover branch as they are the ones near our office. High Street branch is too far already! And the one nearest (26th Bistro) is too expensive hahaha!! 128517

Comparing the 2 branches (burgos and stopover), this one is for those who wants legit quiet time (especially the area upstairs). Only "minor issue" is it's really cold here so be sure to bring jacket or anything to cover yourself. There was a time last year when I spent most of my time here just reading. The seats are all comfy and the place is safe so you don't need to worry about leaving your things for a quick cr break. Just don't leave it for too long!!! 128513

So I finally got to try their new christmas drink, the Toffee Nut Latte. It was too sweeet for me but my officemate loved it when he tried this last week. He kept on saying that it was good and that we should try it! He was really insisting everyone to try it. Hahaha! I got intrigued so I tried it earlier today. It was okay but not trying it again since I only need one stamp for the christmas drink! 128517128541

It's kinda hard to find a great study place in my side of BGC. And after weeks of trying out the different coffee shops around, we finally settled on this one. Nice crowd (except maybe on a Friday), really cold aircon (bring a shawl or jacket, seriously) and friendly staff - makes the premium we pay on coffee really worth the price.

This hot choco, which we tried first time tonight, is great, too. 128523

This beats the Manic Monday feels. Ordered their Tomato and Herb Linguine pasta which is my second next favorite after their Lasagna. Paired it with their Iced Cafe Latte. 1281519749

Love their pasta; a bit sweet. Their salad lacked a bit more drizzle of the dressing but it was fresh and crunchy. 128077 Their tuna sandwhich was good accdg to bf.

The place was peaceful and relaxing, not crowded at all, maybe because we came in late that night already idk but I recommend the place for reviewing.

As usual CBTL's pasta never failed to satisfy my craving. Plus points that I get to sit beside THE Maria Ressa during lunch 128522127837

Everytime I want to have some hearty breakfast fix, there's no place to go but TCBL Burgos Circle, their place overlooks the Burgos roundabout so you'll enjoy your breakfast more whether it's salad, sandwich or pasta because you can just look at the ciew and just enjoy the morning sun. Plus, for an early weekday, there's no long queue and there's always an available seat! Hahaha!

I got a piece of both Banana Chocolate Muffin & Honey Bran Muffin as a “peselubong” for my mom. These are freshly baked muffins that are big in size and flavorful. My mom find both muffins too sweet and cloying especially the Banana Chocolate one, while the other one was just right. I’ve tried both muffins and was overwhelmed with its sweetness.
