The sun is out, summer is in. This is the time of the year when all the gents and ladies out there become figure-conscious. 
Certainly you know some of these kinds of people. Or you might be just one of them. Nothing wrong about being too conscious this summer as long as you don’t starve yourself. Eating and drinking healthy should be the solution for you. 
Scientifically speaking, Green Tea is one of the ways to achieve a sexier body. Green tea extract helps in burning fats and calories calories faster. Other than that, Green tea is helpful to those who have cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, high cholesterol levels, cardiovascular disease, impaired immune function and more. 
In Akiba Cafe, 2 of their best sellers use the special ingredient, Green Tea
Matcha Trifle Tea (Php 90)
How affordable can you get? For Php90 only, you can get one tall glass of this extra healthy and tasty Matcha Trifle Tea. I know that most Filipinos prefer drinking milk tea or mixed teas with pearls. This particular tea is best without pearls; my sister and I both attest to that. Drink it without straw and you’ll taste the goodness in it. I love this drink! 🙂 
Green Tea Cheesecake (Php 130)
Make yourself feel less guilty by trying their cheesecake. You don’t have to adore green tea to appreciate its taste. There’s green tea extract in it but it is not that strong. You can still get the taste of the cheesecake. Recommendable for even to those who abhor green tea, like my sister Reine. Another factor that caught my attention was the crust. It had the right amount of sweetness for a slice of cheesecake. 
You might not have a fondness for Green Tea. Then, you have the option to choose from their other specialties like these: 
Mt. Fuji Kohi (Php 130)
A hot cup of sweet and strong coffee blend. The whipped cream added sweetness to the strong yet less bitter taste coffee. One cup of Mt. Fuji Kohi is best with any of Akiba Cafe’s luscious cakes. 
Sweet Potato Salad (Php 120)
Curiosity made me try a slice of Sweet Potato Salad cake. Light and fluffy texture yet heavy to make you feel full. Layers of smooth and mashed sweet potatoes were beyond ordinary cakes. This is something new I suggest you should try. Take the risk to try a new flavor. 
Chai Trifle Tea (Php 90)
This is the other version of Matcha Trifle Tea. The only difference is that this one has no green tea ingredient. If you are not figure-conscious, getting Chai Trifle Tea shouldn’t be a problem. But as summer gets nearer, I’m suggesting you to get the Green Tea version instead. Whatever choice you make, both trifle teas are winner choices. 
Banoffee Pie (Php 80)
“Cheaper than Starbucks”, the first thing that came to my mind. Not much of a difference if you ask me, except the cake seems to be more frozen than the one in Starbucks. Banoffee pie of Starbucks is more suave when you cut through. 
That small television on the upper left of the photo, showing foreign gag shows, makes some passerby stop and watch. 

Akiba Cafe has their own commissary for their desserts. This means, you can only get and taste the desserts I showed you in Akiba Cafe. 

Thank you Akiba Cafe staff for accommodating me. Your warm and smiling faces will make the customers visit Akiba Cafe regularly. 🙂
