Opened last March 2019, Crema and Cream is a spacious, well-lit bistro in Tomas Morato that doubles as a coffee workshop on the 2nd floor. It’s a great hangout to do some work, learn about coffee and meet friends!
The word “Crema” is Italian for “Coffee”, and “Cream” refers to “Milk”. Crema and Cream Bistro + Coffee Lab started off as a coffee shop concept that home-roasts its own beans, but then it expanded to a bistro. I tried the Flat White (PHP 150) and, let me tell you, I was up all night!
They also sell bags of single origin beans: Brazilian chocolate notes, African fruity or tea-like, and Colombian fruity coffee beans.
With Chef Sherman Cheung personally preparing our dishes at the Zomato foodie meet-up, we certainly had an awesome time trying out his innovative dishes. Some of my favorite Crema and Cream dishes were the Cafe Rib (coffee-glazed ribs) and the Steak & Fries (coffee-rubbed flank steak which was surprisingly tender for its cut)!
Earth Salad (PHP 355) – Seasonal greens with roastd vegetable, cherry tomatoes, and balsamic mushroom tossed in coffee-balsamic vinaigrette, topped with feta cheese, candied cashew, pickle medley and scotch egg.
Asian Chicken Salad (PHP 385) – Fried chicken cutlets with honey soy garlic glaze on mixed seasonal green tossed in creamy wasabi mayo dressing, topped with fried wonton, mango, toasted almonds, corn, red radish, pickled red onion, edamame, nori, bonito flakes and toasted sesame seeds.
