"You'll always get freshly-ground coffee using beans that are roasted locally," stressed Angeli Albana. "We use three different kinds of blends that are of Grade 1 quality, which means these are the best of the best coffee farmed all around the world," continued Angeli Albana.
"All our baristas underwent specialty training and are experts in what they do. They'll be able to give you recommendations based on your taste," adds Angeli Albana. Dipdenza's baristas prepared freshly brewed cups of coffee made from premium Guatemalan and Ethiopian beans, each with its own distinct notes. The rich and bold flavors open up your palate for some of Dipdenza's signature dishes...
...starting with the Ciabatta Tuna Sandwich (P 195), with soft and tender chunks of tuna, mayo, fresh-cut tomatoes and cucumbers, fresh and crisp lettuce, and green olives with a side of chips. The blend of fresh vegetables, tuna, and mayo deliver rich yet clean flavors, a perfect light snack paired with a cup of coffee. Note that the regular and full serving include two sandwiches. One sandwich per variant, as shown above, were served for sampling purposes only.
If it's beef you're looking for, Dipdenza's Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich (P 215) with tender, juicy and thin slices of beef draped in melted cheese topped with green pepper and jalapeno on a crisp baguette, is the one for you. It's a light yet savory sandwich that's just perfect for a mid-afternoon snack or a light lunch paired with any of Dipdenza's specialty coffee blends.
Dipdenza also offers unique Beef & Cheese Wraps (P 175), with a soft tortilla stuffed with shredded beef, melted cheese, green bell peppers, and fresh-cut tomatoes and cucumbers. The blend of savory and fresh notes combine for a burst of rich flavors for another tasty and filling dish.
More sandwich options include a healthy yet flavorful alternative, like the Smoked Turkey Sandwich (P 235), with sliced smoked turkey covered in mayo and honey mustard and topped with fresh-cut tomatoes, cucumbers and crisp lettuce on a baguette. All the flavors you want without the guilt. As mentioned, the dishes shown above are sampling servings and not the full regular dishes.
Aside from its specialty blends, Dipdenza also offers a variety of Frappes, Chillers/Juices, and Shakes and Smoothies, including the Premium Peanut Butter Frappe (P 160 Piccolo/P 170 Medio/P 180 Enorme), a rich and indulgent beverage with sweet peanut butter and cream.
It's dessert you can drink, with a flavorful boost to keep you on the go for the rest of the day. Other must-try frappe flavors include Cookies 'n Cream, Mocha Raspberry, and Chai Latte.
Unlike most coffee chains that serve refrigerated and packaged meals heated in a microwave, Dipdenza serves real food. Like the Pasta Bolognese with Sun-Dried Tomato (P 170), a rustic dish with a rich combination of ground beef, ham, herbs, olives, sun-dried tomatoes, garlic and onions, simmered until tender and served with buttered garlic foccacia toast. The richness of the ground beef and ham are tempered by the sharp notes of the sun-dried tomatoes and olives, rounded out by the nutty garlic notes.
Dipdenza's Creamy Chicken Carbonara (P 180) is another pasta dish with the creamy richness of the classic carbonara with tender chunks of chicken, savory bacon bits, and mushrooms. The creamy texture and flavor are punctuated by the sharp and smoky notes of the bacon bits for balanced flavors.
But if you're looking at trying something different, go for the Spanish Sardines Aglio Oglio (P 190), Dipdenza's tasty spin on the classic aglio oglio, made with extra virgin olive oil, fresh garlic, capers, basil, mushrooms, and Spanish sardines. The medley of flavors, from the richness of the sardines to the sharpness of the capers, blend seamlessly in a perfectly balanced dish.
