The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf

>> Friday, October 15, 2010

So you are single, have a great job, a good set of friends and a perfect life. Material things are not a problem either. You have a car, a nice flat and the newest iPad.

Then you realize that women are not interested in you.

That is the sad fact my friends. We cannot understand women. We do not know what they really like and what they really don't like. My best hint would be because of your looks. But that's okay, there is always the blind side of love. This is probably because to have a beautiful or a successful woman makes us the alpha male. Well, not if you married Kris Aquino.

One way to understand a woman is take her to a coffee shop. Engage in a relaxing atmosphere and talk while enjoying great coffee. Taking her to The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf would be the greatest idea since deciding to finally throw your journal in the urinal and finally talk to a girl. Coffee Bean offers excellent coffee and great eats. The coffee shop that invented the ice blended coffee, Coffee Bean continues to treat us with quality products.

Ice Blended Double Chocolate

Their Ice Blended Double Chocolate makes the coffee nervous. Topped with cream, the richness of the chocolate blasts all over your mouth. If you are into cappuccinos, The Coffee Bean's cappuccino is as interesting as Sam Milby's gender. When you order their cappuccino, stirring is prohibited. This is because the cappuccino is made and handcrafted by putting the flavors layer by layer. Because of this, you need not to stir to fully enjoy the coffee.

If you are into the classic fresh brew, they serve the best coffee beans there is and will handcraft it personally for you. Their fresh brewed coffee can always soothe your day. It is black as the devil, hot as hell, pure as an angel and sweet as love.

Chipotle Roast Chicken

Smoked Turkey & Melted Cheddar Cheese

No matter how beautiful your girl is, she still gets hungry. The Coffee Bean does not just serve the finest coffee but they also serve great meals. Their gourmet sandwich is a winner. Their Sandwiches are composed of fresh vegetables with a good amount of meat in it. Not just that, all sandwiches are served with a small side salad. Their Smoked Turkey & Melted Cheddar Cheese Sandwich is simply made of awesome. The meat of the turkey does not taste like rubber at all. The turkey is not heavily flavored to give way to the natural flavors of the meat. To seal the deal, the melted cheddar cheese is successful in giving character on the sandwich.

Chilled Spicy Chicken Salad

Coffee Bean's Classic Caesar Salad

What surprises me is that The Coffee Bean also serves salads. Give their salads the chance like how women give chances to their lovers. The difference is that their salads will never fail you. Just like how you found your wife, you never thought that on of the best caesar salad can be found at a coffee shop. The best thing about the Coffee Bean's Classic Caesar Salad is how the sauce is tossed to stick to the romaine leaves and garlic croutons. This is the salad that you need to take on seriously.

Roasted Chicken & Mushroom Fusilli

Men knows how they like their women. Good girls go to heaven, bad girls go everywhere. Coffee Bean also offers pasta for people who choose heavy meals. Their Spicy Tuna Linguine is not a dish to keep away from. This dish is playful. The spicy flavor of the dish does not set everything on fire and there is a distinctive hint of sourness on the sauce. They also serve Roast Chicken & Mushroom Fusilli. This dish is very tasty and creamy. I love how the light flavors leave the taste on your lips. The flavor stays long enough, it will make you busy while your girl is in the wash room.

Low Sugar Chocolate Mousse

Carrot Cake

If you are into sweets, Coffee Bean offers low sugar desserts without taking the sweetness away. From their Chocolate Mousse to their Toblerone Cheesecake, it is prepared with consistency on the art of confections. The little pinch of sourness from the cheesecake is there and the texture of the dessert is perfect. Coffee Bean's Carrot Cake is a surprise treat. You need to focus on this cake as the mixture and the balance of the sweetness is greatly accomplished. Perfect after a meal or partner it with coffee and share it with your love one.

Blueberry Cheesecake

Just like any other guy, I don't understand women. All I know is we need to pamper her because if she cries in court, the judge will wipe her tears with your checkbook. The guys who finally understand women are already married and is working to go to Honolulu - it's got everything. Sand for the children, sun for the wife and sharks for the wife's mother.

The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf not just offers great coffee and food. It proves that the richness of each ingredient will determine the quality of the product and that is what makes this coffee shop tick.

Chocolate, women, coffee - some things are better rich.
