Real Coffee's Calamansi Muffins

It's the start of the "-Ber" months again and here in the Philippines, it also means start of the Christmas season which is also equivalent to an excuse to feast on whatever food cravings we have and blame it on the Christmas season. Yes, we're sneaky like that.

So, while I was doing my drafting work earlier in the family room, my cousin was watching a movie on the local cable channel -- When Love Begins, that reminded me of these muffins that were so magical they lasted almost a month before I (and I alone) consumed the whole box and I'm not being sarcastic when I say magical because even though I eat at least one muffin a day, the whole box still looks untouched.

Calamansi Muffins @ Real Coffee, Boracay

Some friends of mine say there's nothing really special about these muffins and that they pretty much taste like lemon squares. 

I disagree. 

Okay, maybe they do taste like lemon squares... a little.


I do believe these Calamansi Muffins rock (plus Jonah's shake).

If you happen to be in Boracay, drop by at Real Coffee for some afternoon "snack" or just buy one muffin for only P35 (less than $1). One muffin is huge, by the way. I don't know how much for the whole box since a close friend of mine just bought it for me for my birthday but it's probably P35 x 12 pcs. Not bad.

Real Coffee is located near Boat Station 1 in Boracay. I also hear they have great coffee thus the name.
