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…
