While waiting for the boat that would take workers home (and me) to Carabao Island, I killed time by walking from one station to another, looking at signboards nailed on coconut trees. One muffin-shaped signboard caught my eye. It had an arrow painted on the bottom, directing me to the "Home of the Calamansi Muffin." Boredom and the love for lemon cupcakes made me follow the arrows. (Only after the trip did I find out that this place is quite popular... many blogs have raved about it.)
Since I was not looking for a meal, but was focused on trying out just the muffins, I checked the side of the menu listing all the muffins. Aside from calamansi muffins, Real Coffee also had banana walnut muffins, carrot raisin muffins, and muffins that rolled the two into one (banana, walnut, carrot, raisin, plus pineapple)—they called it ultimate muffin.
I only had money for two: an ultimate muffin and a calamansi muffin
Will this blog rave about it? I love lemon cupcakes and their calamansi muffin had the right tang in my opinion. The ultimate muffin tasted just like a carrot cupcake but with extra bits and pieces. For ordinary looking and ordinary tasting muffins, the price is too much. But there was nothing I could do, I was in Boracay. Everything here is expensive.
