Figaro Figaro Figaroooooo!!
Check this out. My Mom and I swung by Figaro for lunch today at the SM Megamall after I covered the 1st Foreign Chambers Lifestyle Expo. Their staff weren’t friendly and they didn’t have the 2 food orders we wanted.
So we settled for the following:
Figaro’s “Ciabatta”, however, was plain old white bread without the crust and toasted over a grill to give those brown stripes on it. I wouldn’t be surprised if they put those grill marks in using brown marker. Disappointing.
My mother “tsk-tsk”-ed at me for this, because she thinks I’m a corny eater. If they had that damn Grilled Eggplant Sandwich, I would’ve gone for that. But anyway, this one was… BLEH. The greens were sad, the dressing was pale (for Caesar dressing) and tasted like sour Ranch. The croutons were cheesy and chewy. It’s edible, at least.
To the folks at Figaro, maybe you guys should stick to coffee.
