Cafe Mina is a new restaurant located along Circumferential Road near Bacolod’s New Government Center. This amazing cafe is located in the most unlikely place – a Star Oil gas station!
Despite this, Cafe Mina is in fact, very picturesque and elegant. The interior is cool and has lots of beautiful decorations and imported goods for you to do a little window shopping while you wait for your orders.
There’s a lot of baked goods on hand like Cafe Mina’s Walnut rolls and Cheese Brioche breads.
This mocha bun looks so fluffy and tempting.
We love Cafe Mina’s Almond cookies. They’re crisp cookies that aren’t super sweet – no extra sugar added. The lack of sugar allows the flavor of the almonds to really take center stage. Each cookie is packed full of crunchy almonds.
After browsing through all the goods our food began to arrive. Here’s what we ordered!
Country style Clubhouse – 355 php
This massive sandwich came on a thick mini-loaf of freshly baked sourdough bread. It was a substantial meal, really good for two because of the size! There was plenty of bacon, ham and cheese. It came with a side of excellently seasoned fries.
Big Aussie Burger – 350 php
A beef burger with egg, bacon, pineapple and beetroot and caramelized onions. Quite packed and full of fiber too!
Hamback steak -350
Minced Angus beef (more like an angus patty) covered with mashed potatoes, a brown sauce, egg and shavings of cheese. Very very good and filling.
Chicken Schnitzel Parmigiana – 385
Layered tomato sauce. slices of eggplant and parmesan cheese over thick cutlets of chicken. You can chose to have this over mashed potatoes or on pasta. We couldn’t decide so we had both!
After conferring for a while – the vote was 4 votes to one for Chicken Parm on pasta for tastiest version!
Come and Visit Cafe Mina! You may be turned off by seeing the high prices that we posted but rest assured. You will definitely, absolutely get your money’s worth because the portions are SO BIG. We got Andie Guerrero – a friends daughter to pose beside the dishes so you could have some perspective on how BIG the portion sizes are.
The food isn’t super seasoned because Cafe Mina provides himalayan salt, fresh black peppercorn in a pepper mill and imported sriracha sauce for you to adjust the food to your taste.
There are plenty of cakes and desserts especially the matcha cheesecake which is Cafe mina’s best seller but we were too full to try any more – we left with a promise to come back and try them next time.
Cafe Mina is located along Circumferential road at the Star Oil Gas station past NGC.
