Fuel.ph: More than a cafe; It’s a movement!
Creating a difference in the world is a positive rebellion to the fairly conformist way of life. To create a difference does not mean to inhibit oneself from doing what the world typically does but somehow to do something better, what you think is passionately improving and from the heart.
A true supporter of passion and talent, Fuel.ph (Fuel Iloilo) advocates in a social movement where passion is the primary inspiration. It seeks to encourage young talents and people who have the hidden desire to showcase their own skills and continually inspire others to do the same. Forming an affirmative arena where hidden abilities sprouts and people inspired, Fuel.ph moves to allow anyone to put their own passion into action.
Snowballs at Fuel.ph
Depicting a cool and youth-oriented restaurant, Fuel.ph offers more than just the venerable advocacy. It is a social enterprise that goes beyond profit generation yet offering note-worthy food pleasures for foodies’ delight.
Since its launching early this year, young generations, who start to discover the modish presentation of Fuel.ph, crowds the place almost every afternoon, enjoying a cool summer drink amidst a stylish backdrop. Casual wooden chairs and tables entice anyone to relax and simply take pleasure in what the place has to offer. A mini loft charms groups of young at heart for an extended stay without having to perturb anyone below. What’s more appealing are the bold expressions on the wall: arty, articulate and attractive.
Apart from the allure of the place, Fuel.ph offers a narrow line of flavored drinks, meals and desserts starting with a charming rendition of snow cones in different flavors known as Snowballs. These are shaved or crushed ice topped with flavored syrup and two adorable gummy bears.
For Php30, you can choose from various flavors like Blue Banana, Ube, Mango, Pineapple, Strawberry and Buko Pandan. Go three flavors in a cup with the Rainbow Snowball for Php40. It includes flavors such as Pineapple, Blueberry and Banana. Since it incorporates a banana flavor, the Rainbow Snowball tasted pretty much similar to the Blue Banana Snowball. Nevertheless, the feeling of enjoying a thirst-quenching icy treat that is reasonably priced is indeed worth it.
A special mention to their Mint Milk Tea, where its atypical presentation draws attention. Placed in a simple medium-sized glass mug, you can find a refreshingly sweet and healthy drink with a mint leaf on top. Go mint tea flavor or the classic milk tea for Php65.00 each.
Other drinks and treats offered are Heaven On Earth (my first choice but not available when we got there ), Hot and Iced Coffee Espresso, Iced Tea, Hot Tea, Soda and Hot Chocolate. For espresso, you can choose to have it served French pressed at Php55 per cup or Php150 for a bigger and sharing size or iced coffee at Php55 per cup and Php100 per sharing.
A personal favorite is their Carrot Cake: moist, sweet, soft and homemade. It has a cinnamon flavor with raisins to add to that sweet taste, indeed deserving to be dubbed as “One of the best carrot cake I’ve ever tasted!” Have a slice for Php50.00 each.
Other desserts include famed baked goodies from Maridel’s such as the Pastries de Nata for Php20.00 and Brownies, 2 pieces for Php35.00. (Loved the Brownies especially the toffee syrup topping!)
Want to hear something more admirable? Fuel.ph offers Mom’s Meals, a set meal of home cooked foods especially prepared by moms at the Camp Sonshine Center Foundation, at Php65.00 per meal.
You can also find expressive, pro-environment and indie merchandises sold at Fuel.ph such as Jacinto & Lirio products, Fuel.ph shirts and ballers as well as CD albums from local bands and artists.
