Exactly a month ago (yes, another late post), right after grocery-shopping, my nanay and I were on the lookout for a new restaurant to try out. And, just right outside SM Hypermarket was Bubble Tea, one of the popular places in the Metro where you can enjoy milk teas. I’ve read about them from fellow foodies so I was looking forward to our dinner at Bubble Tea.
We weren’t sure what to order yet ’cause I’m on a low carb diet. But, everything on their menu looked tempting so I said “forget about it” (in Italian mafia accent). I think it took us almost 10 minutes before we finally decided on what to order.
First, we ordered drinks. I chose Bubble Tea’s Taro Milk Tea (large, Php 125). I picked the Passion Fruit Black Tea (Php 95, cold, large) for my mom. After tasting both drinks, she wanted my Taro Milk Tea. She found the passion fruit too citrusy/sour for her taste. I enjoyed it though.
If you look at the photo, the glasses don’t look that tall. But, they were. I still think it’s a bit pricey. 😀
By the way, you are given options of less sugar and the size of tapioca pearls (“bubbles”) you want in your drink. You can go for big pearls, small or a combination of both. We forgot to mention I preferred bigger pearls so we both ended up with the other choice.
Now, on to our main orders. My nanay wanted to have fish for dinner so we ordered this for her – Bubble Tea’s Fish Katsudon (Php 195), breaded fish cutlet with cheese filling, egg and tonkatsu sauce.
It was a bit bland for our taste. I loved the crunch you get from each bite of the Fish cutlet though and that the egg was perfectly cooked sunny side up. 🙂 The serving was big enough for my mom. She, again, preferred the one I ordered.
I picked the Chicken Teriyaki Doria (Php 245), grilled boneless chicken on top of baked rice with melted cheese. I enjoyed it. I kinda expected it to be a li’l salty ’cause of the cheese, but it wasn’t. The cheese didn’t overpower the chicken. The thickness of the baked rice with cheese mixed well with the chicken and the sauce. The serving was a li’l big for my appetite that night so I had to share it with my mom.
My mom wanted to try their sushi. We kinda were going back and forth with what to order, so we decided to ask one of their staff. The lady suggested we order this:
That’s Bubble Tea’s Nippon Ebi (Php 285), Panko breaded prawns rolled in sushi rice, topped with mango on melted mozzarella cheese. The description alone should make your mouth water. And it didn’t fail my expectations! I loved it that I almost ate everything! 😀 Yeah, diet my *bleep*. 😀
The sweetness of the mango complemented well with the prawn and cheese. Again, kinda a heavy dish to eat with my baked rice with cheese. 😀 I was REALLY full with all the rice and cheese I ate at our dinner at Bubble Tea. Just look at the spread we had for dinner.
I am giving Bubble Tea in SM The Block a rating of 4 stars. The Nippon Ebi and Taro Milk Tea was the stars of our dinner and I can’t wait to try the other items on their menu.
