Though its history is a world away, Italian cooking has made many Filipinos feel right at home. Universally, it’s the taste of nostalgia. A twirl of pasta or bite of pizza is as embedded in childhood joys as a first crush or exhilarating bike ride.
Forgive me for staring. Single Origin probably has the most charming window ledge counter I have ever seen in the metro. They have fresh flowers, a vista overlooking the mall’s famed open green space, and a cup of coffee beside them. This is a picture of bliss in an otherwise congested metro.
Judging by how our city’s traffic realities have limited our mobility, accessibility has become a priority to many of us. Luckily, Single Origin has made our daily fuel—a necessary cup of coffee—along with a diverse menu of delicious beverages and brunch bites more easily available.
Single Origin, as the name implies, specializes on specialty-grade coffee. Cocktails, craft beers, and wines are available as well, from the time they open until they close around past midnight. Their beverage menu continues to be a force to be reckoned with.
