Love at First Bite: Xtremely Xpresso

A few weeks ago, I went to Anvaya Cove with some college friends and R. The place would have been extra nice if the weather cooperated. Nonetheless, it was a fun trip! And since we're already in Subic, I made sure that we stop by Xtremely Xpresso.

Hello, Xtremely Xpresso!
The place was packed when we arrived but we were lucky to get a table for six right away.
While the staff was clearing our table, we roamed around and the first thing we noticed was that there are different concepts in play. The main dining area of Xtremely Xpresso has an old  American diner feel with its vintage light boxes. 
The other dining area had an English tea salon feel.

Once our table was set up, we ordered Big Ben Xtreme (PHP729) for sharing. R and I also ordered Bacon Cheeseburger (PHP180), Meat Lasagna (PHP200), and Pumpkin Soup (PHP120). For drinks, we opted for Raspberry Avalanche (PHP100) and Caramel Daze (PHP100).
R's drink sure was berrylicious. It was really sweet! Mine had a nice hint of coffee with the sweet taste of caramel. R and I both liked the Caramel Daze more than the Raspberry Avalanche.
The pumpkin soup was creamy and had that sweet taste that I love. The crispy bacon bits added a nice contrast in flavor and texture.
Next served was our lasagna. It was cheesy and meaty! I loved it! It may not be sophisticated or the classy type of lasagna but this comfort dish is a winner! I packed the leftover lasagna for lunch the following day and it was still as good as when it was served at the restaurant.

I wasn't able to taste the sad looking burger but since R finished it without any complaint, I'm guessing that it's good too.

Now for the star of our meal... BIG BEN.
Described as the ultimate pizza "loaded with pepperoni, sausage, bacon, and beef on garlic, onions, peppers, mushroom, black olive and two kinds of cheese," this 22" beauty sure fed us well.

It wasn't the best pizza I had but with its size and toppings, it was definitely worth the price
Overall, we had a nice and filling lunch. However, service was extremely slow. We had to ask for water and extra utensils more than three times. I even had to go to the counter to get the utensils myself. (We were forgiving though as the place was filled with hungry diners.)

I'll definitely visit again! 

Xtremely Xpresso is located at 1 Dewey Avenue, Subic Bay Freeport Zone.
