It’s always nice discovering cozy coffeeshops in the city and the latest we’ve stepped into is Tasty Tucker Cafe. It has 5 branches in Metro Manila and neighboring provinces. All are located beside HMR Philippines surplus stores because they have the same Australian owner.
Tasty Tucker Down Under means Delicious Food because tucker means food. I did research that 🙂
For my initial foray in Tasty Tucker, I visited their restaurant in Pioneer corner Reliance St. Mandaluyong. What immediately stood out were the solid brown wooden tables and chairs which made the atmosphere a bit subdued.
They were introducing that day their improved coffee lineup. According to the friendly cafe manager whose name escapes me now: “Tasty Tucker is committed to serve premium coffee blends, expertly crafted by our baristas and served with eagerness. We rotate our roasts and blends every few months to keep anticipation high and the quality consistent.”
The coffee beans used at Tasty Tucker are a signature blend of Arabica with three origins namely Brazil Cerrado, Colombia Supremo, and Tanzaniza Peberries. It is medium bodied coffee that is both complex and sweet, with hints of toasted walnuts, cacao, and a tart finish.
The Piccolo Latte (P140) was highly recommended, I tasted it and liked it so.
The Flat White and the Mocha are also good. Both at P140 a serving.
For coffee lovers,the cafe has the complete line-up. Aside from those already mentioned, they also have Espresso (P100), Double Espresso (P120), Cappuccino (P140), Espresso Macchiato (P130) and Long Black (P120).
But the best thing is that they also have an Aussie-style food menu to go with the drinks. Pies and pizza and parma, anyone? For locals, not to fret because there’s rice meals as well like tapsilog and other dishes.
Of course, before or after hanging out in Tasty Tucker, a little shopping at HMR is recommended because the two shops are just beside each other. I had a nice time looking through good and cheap furnitures, appliances, clothes and items for the home.
