Last week I recieved an invite to attend the intimate gathering of media people and some celebrities at Cafe France. It was held at their branch at Jupiter St. in Makati. I was allowed to bring a plus one so I tagged along my sister-in-law who is also a blogger.
I went to this event because I am not really into Gourmet Sandwiches but I wanted to try them out. I find them expensive and as a regular Filipino citizen who is into eating rice more, I thought that Gourmet sandwiches will not satisfy my hungry tummy. But all of that changed when I took a bite on one of the Cafe France Gourmet Sandwiches.
Without further ado, here are the list of their Gourmet Sandwiches you can choose from, and find out what I had that made me change my perspective on eating Gourmet Sandwiches.
6 New CafeFrance Gourmet Sandwiches
Mandarin BBQ Beef- Tender slices of brisket with a sweet and tangy barbecue citrus sauce, complemented with orange slices (Ala Carte P285.00)
Rib Eye Steak- Sliced, baked rib eye steak in a delectable balsamic garlic sauce, with button mushrooms and shitake mushrooms, with sauteed onions, fresh lettuce and tomatoes (Ala Carte P250.00)
Crispy Shrimp- Crunchy beer-battered plump shrimps smothered in a sweet and tangy honey-mustard sauce with fresh tomatoes and lettuce (Ala Carte P235.00).
This is the only gourmet sandwich I have tasted during the event. As much as I want to go for a second round, just one order of this already made me full. I love that the shrimps are crispy, juicy and tender. I liked the honey mustard too that came with it. The ala carte even came with potato chips on the side. I partnered this with a four seasons juice (not included in the photo).
Yummy and really satisfying!!!!
Hickory Chicken- Lean, pulled chicken in a luscious barbecue sauce, topped with crunchy alfalfa sprouts (Ala Carte P235.00)
