KAPENG MAINIT: Chocolate or Green Tea Beignets by Chef Bryan Francisco! (A Review)

Beignets

KAPENG MAINIT is a neighborhood comfort food cafe by Chef Bryan Francisco, now famous for their yummy chocolate- or green tea-filled beignets

The name (which means "Hot Coffee") was given by his brother, co-owner Ronian Poe, inspired by FPJ's movie "Walang Matigas na Tinapay sa Mainit na Kape". Together with co-owner Geoff Eigenmann, they are set on changing the sleepy side of Tropical Avenue into one of the new food trip destinations in BF.

We tried the food and the beignets and here's what we think...

Dear Our Awesome Planet Friends,
 
Awesome Greetings!

First of all, thank you for all the awesome support for 10+ years! 
 
Thanks for the honest feedback in the survey last year which greatly influenced my directions for OAP amidst the changing internet landscape :)

After a year, I would like to get feedback on how OAP met your expectation
 
Here's the 5-question Annual OAP Survey 2015.

As I plan for the next decade of OAP, I want to make sure to incorporate as much feedback as possible on how to continue what's working, to correct what's not, and to understand your expectations for OAP for the years to come.

2015 is a turning point in Our Awesome Planet. I'm making a transition to more video content, a better design for the blog, to write my first travel book and expand internationally.

I read all the survey feedbacks (both positive and negative) and it directly influences my plans and directions for OAP.

AWESOME THANKS for caring enough to answer this survey: OAP Survey August 2015
