Xtremely Xpresso is known for being one of the most-visited restaurants in the SBMA area. I have heard stories about how this place would get packed every lunch and dinner, all thanks to their tasty dishes, like their pizzas and pastas. It’s like another version of Café Lidia, if you will. My mom’s friend has been here a couple of times, and recommended that we try out this place the next time we head on over to Subic.
Technically this isn’t the first time that we’ve been to this place – We followed my mom’s friend’s suggestion and ordered their Big Ben pizza for takeout before heading back home during one of our past SBMA trips. We ended up finishing the whole thing before we could even reach Manila. Hehe.
Because of their success, Xtremely Xpresso opened up two more branches – One in Pampanga, and one in Tagaytay. We ended up visiting their Tagaytay branch after staying in Batangas for a vacation… We were originally supposed to have lunch at Solenad/Nuvali, but had to change our plans since we came there a little too early
and honestly I’m still slightly upset about that >_<
Interior. This place looks so much cleaner than their Subic branch, but I kinda like the charm of their Subic branch a little bit more.
Okay so everyone knows that I’m not exactly the biggest fan of Truffle Pasta – But there was something about Xtremely Xpresso’s version that had an addicting quality to it… I’m guessing it’s the truffle oil that they used?
Can’t forget the Hot Chocolate.
Since I like strange food combos, I ordered their crunchy Chicken Fingers and paired it up with my hot chocolate. Hehe. The chicken was perfectly fried, and I loved the tanginess of the honey mustard sauce too.
And lastly… one of their bestsellers, the Big Ben pizza!! This pizza had the works – Pepperoni, sausage, beef, bacon, garlic, peppers, onions, mushrooms, black olives, and two types of cheese. Crust was a little bit burnt at the edges, but apart from that, the pizza was just heavenly – And as good as I had remembered.
I’m glad to know that Xtremely Xpresso’s food hasn’t changed since we last came here. I can see myself coming back here to have lunch the next time we visit either Clark, Subic, or Tagaytay. I really hope they can open up a Manila branch sometime in the future as well.
