While coffee shop is known as a place for meetings, the One Plus Coffee that is newly opened in the Circuit, Makati intended their place as a co-working space where the diners would expect hanging wires from the top for the laptops, long tables for the meetings, and free WiFi connection all for the convenience of the diners. I can say that the place is very helpful for the group studies of the students or for the corporate brainstorming of the professionals.
One Plus Coffee only intended to offer drinks for the diners but they have decided to also offer food. Luckily, Aldous, Tin, and I got to try some of these last Wednesday while their menu is still in the process of updating.
These Potato Chips looked really lovely. It looked like a big flower blossoming on our table. It comes in big chips, it looks thick but actually thin. It is crunchy and the saltiness is balanced right. I’m already satisfied on the chip itself even without the dipping. But hell, even the dipping is also great!
The Szechuan Shrimp Balls looked like a dessert for me when I was taking a photo of it but I was surprised that it’s my favorite seafood I was munching in a form of balls. Given that Szechuan dishes are spicy, the One Plus Coffee’s dish did not give a dash of heat but a little tangy and sweet flavor. At first, I thought it was a chocolate sauce, but it is a balsamic sauce that gives magic to this dish.
Chomping these wings gave me a sweet flavor beforehand, however, the spiciness gets to me after eating a piece of it. Here’s One Plus Sweet & Spicy Wings.
Between the Caesar Salad and the Creamy Greek Salad, I like the latter. Maybe I was not really a fan of acidic sauce like that of Caesar. Plus, the Creamy Garlic Salad has a slice of cucumber that made me more to like it.
The Aglio Olio did not fail to satisfy my hunger. Al dente pasta, the flavor of the garlic really went through, and the distinct taste of olive oil, there’s nothing to ask for more but wait…
Here’s another pasta – Meaty Baked Lasagna. It’s good but not as sinful as I thought it was.
As for the beverages, where One Plus Coffee is an expert of, there are few drinks that would definitely make you curious so to give you a preview, here are the zips I had.
If you like a drink that is not too strong, order Nutella Mocha. It is nutty and a little chocolatey.
The Latte Macchiato has stronger taste compare to Thai Latte. Thai Latte is the one with whipped cream on top.
Matcha Latte served iced and hot. I like the iced one better.
Sexy Cucumber Lemon
Kiwi Lemonade. It’s acidic but luxurious.
Alluring Strawberry Mocha. It’s not as sweet as I expected so I think this is better paired with a pastry or a slice of cake. 🙂
One Plus Coffee has an innovative strategy since Makati as a business district, people surely seek a place where they can last longer that is conducive for finishing paper works, for studying or for a meeting. The ambiance of the place projects that concept so the by passers would surely note that it is a great coffee shop to linger whenever they have to in the future. The coffee shop is big, cozy, and well ventilated. I also like how they play with the colors of the furniture and the instagrammable frames on display. The serving for food is meant for small portions, considering the said “concept” but the drinks come in the regular size just like the other coffee shops. The staff is welcoming and joyful, which is a thing to expect for coffee shops. Truly, One Plus Coffee is the coffee shop the people can depend on whenever you need a table to rely on. Of course, you do order! 🙂
