I rarely travel. This, in and of itself, is somewhat ironic because I traveled extensively as a child. Fortunately, the situation somewhat rectified itself when I headed to the Queen City of the South, Cebu, for a fly-in/fly-out business trip.
Now, if there is anything I’ve learned from traveling in the past, is that it is never a good idea to travel on an empty stomach regardless of whether it’s a short- or long-haul flight. Fortunately, travelers these days are spoilt for choice when it comes to light and substantial eats at the NAIA Terminal III. And so: breakfast…
Chaikofi offers some fairly substantial breakfast options under its Breakfast Delights menu. Each tray is perfect for one hearty eater or two light appetites as it comes with a fried egg, one’s choice of additional protein, a substantial glob of ready-to-spread butter, and four slices of whole-grain toast.
I chose the Breakfast Delight with Hungarian Sausage (P 185.00) and it was a rather satisfying choice. The sausage was properly smoky and fried just right: crisp skin and succulent innards that were more meat than filler. The toast could have used another few minutes in the panini press, but these were warm and nutty tasting; there was enough butter to generously slather on every slice.
Caffeine is, of course, a must when traveling for work. (Otherwise, you’d be cranky and sleepy from being roused out of bed at 3 AM!) Chaikofi’s caffe mocha is just strong, sweet, and creamy enough to suit and has nice cocoa notes in the taste.
