Looks like illy is going head-to-head with the competition. From the entire mall they decided to place their new store right in front of Nespresso and I’m pretty sure Nespresso aren’t happy about it. I personally prefer illy over Nespresso but haven’t bought any of their machines yet.
First thing that crossed my mind while I was there was why caffè instead of café? Later found out Italians like to add an additional ‘f’ to Caffè . The place had a red/white theme, mostly red which should get you all hyped up when inside. Yesterday was the first day for the new breakfast menu which I got to try.
We started out with the popular breakfast dish Orientale Prima Colozine which had two really crispy fried eggs with some labneh and halloum. Also comes with cucumber, olives and bread (available on the gallery). I like the combination, definitely the lightest breakfast meal I’ve had in a long time. continue reading»
I’m sure many of you like me, are big fans of Nescafé’s canned coffee that’s sold in supermarkets. There great for a quick caffeine boost. I went to the supermarket the other day and found illy (the popular Italian coffee brand) is now selling their canned coffee. So I bought a couple instead of my usual Nescafé dose. Turns out they taste the same but cost double. Nescafé is 250 fils per can while illy is 495 fils per can.
