Nueva Ecija’s Pride: Caffé La Tea Opens in Quezon City

Read first :  “Sweet Treats in Cabanatuan City: Part 1”

I’m proud to inform everyone (especially Novo Ecijanos who are living in Manila 😊) that Caffé La Tea is now open in Quezon City! One of Nueva Ecija’s finest is finally available to bring locally infused delicacies to the Metro Manila market ❤️

Getting an invite from Caffé La Tea made me remember (nostalgic..😋 ) my first ever food-related blog released last July. It made me remember the experience and the pastries I have tried (at that time, I was only looking for something to appease my sweet cravings). Unfortunately, I was not able to try their other food and drink variants. Hence, I was excited to receive an invite for a food tasting event from Caffé La Tea – Anonas Branch. In addition, the idea of meeting fellow bloggers around the metro or probably from my home province made it more interesting.

For someone new to the blogging business, it is an honour to be invited to their first Manila branch (since majority of their branches are located in Central Luzon). Caffé La Tea is one of the fastest growing Filipino restaurant/caffé from Central Luzon. This shows that our local entrepreneurs from Nueva Ecija are getting more aggressive, innovative and competitive by entering the Metro Manila market (Kudos to our Nueva Ecija entrepreneurs! 😊 ).


Place

I visited their newest branch in QC last September 24, 2015. It was a weekday, thus, we expected heavy traffic. Also, since we were not familiar with the area, we decided to use Uber Service (btw, you should try their service if you’re in the Metro since it’s safe and convenient! ) instead of bringing our own car. From Makati, it took us around 45 minutes to get to the place.

Caffé La Tea is a 2-storey building located near the busy Aurora Blvd. surrounded by schools and other establishments. Thus, when we arrived, the place was packed with (mostly) students.


Products & Prices

Counterclokwise: Oolong Tea, Café Americano, and Matcha Green Tea Latte

This time, I was able to try their other drink and food variants. In terms of prices, their mark-up is slightly higher than our “provincial prices”. Though, the price can still be considered cheaper and budget-friendly – especially for students. If you want, you can check out their menu on their website.

Here are the food variants we have tried during our visit:

  1. Deviled Tofu 

Appetizer will never be the same again because of the “Deviled Tofu”. For Php 129, you get to enjoy tofu in a different way. It’s spicy, creamy, and spicy (Did i say spicy already? lol. ). My fiancé even claims that this dish will be perfect when paired with beer.

2. Creamy Longga Pasta

For Php 159, you get to taste an Italian dish infused with Nueva Ecija’s version of Longganisa. For those who are not familiar with our very own’s longganisa, ours is overpowered with garlic and pepper unlike others that are too sweet to taste.

3. Wild Mushroom and Truffle Oil

Another pasta dish that you can enjoy for about Php 159 only.

4. Sisig Rice

I really can’t pass up the opportunity of tasting this dish. So for Php 89, you get to taste their version of sisig.

5. Cabsy Longganisa Rice

A perfect “all day” meal for Php 89 only. Again, Caffé La Tea showcases our Nueva Ecija’s longganisa.
