Before heading back to Manila from our weekend beach outing at Camayan Beach Resort, my husband suggested that we have our lunch at Xtremely Xpresso. He already had the chance to try the place out with his officemates a few years ago while on a team building session in Subic. He strongly recommended the place so off we went to have our lunch there.
Judging from the name of the place, I thought that they would only serve light meals and coffee. Surprisingly, the place also offers steaks, pasta, and pizza. We ordered Pepper Steak, Baby Back Ribs, Chicken Steak, Carbonara, Hawaiian Pizza, and Banana Split for dessert. While my husband and mother-in-law had soda and iced tea, Ralph and I chose to have a Caramel Daze Frappe and Mochaccino fixes!
The place was crowded when we arrived at around past twelve noon. Seems that the place already has a huge following among the tourists of Subic. The only downside of this is that the service is slow. The crew probably is better on off-peak days. The place could have also be better if it was a little bigger. My mother-in-law thought that there were spaces in the restaurant that were not efficiently used.
With regard to the food, all I can say is that I enjoyed my Carbonara and Mochaccino. Although my mother-in-law found her Baby Back Ribs to be more on the sour side, I found it okay. Ralph liked the Pepper Steak because the peppercorns were whole and it wasn't that spicy. The only thing that bothered me was the Hawaiian Pizza. It was cold and quite bland to my taste. I will still give them another try when I get to visit Subic again, though. I still have to get a taste of their famous Big Ben pizza. Probably, it's just because they're understaffed and the place was overcrowded that the pizza wasn't hot and fresh from the oven anymore.
While waiting for our food to be served, I went around the place and took snapshots of the interesting knick knacks that they had on display. These somehow made up for the cold pizza we had that day. Kinda reminded me of Bigg's.
