Rojo Coffee Celebrates Filipino Food and Spanish Cuisine
July 2, 2019, was a memorable day for Jovy Acuzar and Khaled Ostwani. The foodie couple officially launched their passion project, Rojo Coffee and invited bloggers and other people from the media to try out their delectable treats.
Metro Manila is home to numerous coffee shops so what sets Rojo Coffee apart? Well, for Filipinos and even a growing number of foreigners trying Filipino food, eating rice is a must. Filipinos eat rice at any time of the day. What other coffee shops miss offering rice and other heavy meals in their menu, Rojo Coffee proudly offers.
Jovy Acuzar mentioned that their menu consists of well-thought Pinoy favorites as well as Spanish-inspired foods. They offer sandwiches, different kinds of pasta, rice bowls, and of course, pastries. She also said that their menu price is always lower than Php300. That’s good news for hungry peeps looking for affordable meals. All their menus are done the ‘Rojo Way.’
Jovy and Khaled make sure that their menus are all prepared in-house. There are no flavors enhancers like MSG and freshness is always guaranteed. They are also committed to reducing food waste in the café and they support charities that address hunger issues.
On the other hand, their location is just along EDSA, Quezon City. They’re at the ground floor of Victoria Sports Tower Station II. The location is near two of the broadcasting giants in the country so it’s possible you can bump shoulders with a Kapamilya or Kapuso star. Incidentally, the building where Rojo Coffee is located has a members-only activity center. They have a ballet studio, basketball court, area for gymnastics, gym, table tennis, and swimming pool.
You might wonder where the term “Rojo” came from. The owners said that it means ‘red’ in Spanish. This word describes Rojo Coffee as they are all about love, joy, energy, and passion. The café was founded in 2018.
The two owners share the same passion which they want to carry out to the café. They created this café in the hope of giving people the satisfaction that not other cafes can give. The café also accepts takeaway and delivery orders.
