And try it out I did! Never have I tasted such a great combination that my succeeding visits found me ordering the same thing again and again.
Well, this isn't Singapore, baby! So alas, I couldn't have it here and would content myself with the occasional taste twice or thrice in a year. =(
Well, that was before Bubble Tea Restaurant (Tokyo Milk Tea Place) offered me a similarly delicious alternative.
Named after those popular pearl milk tea beverages that seem to be popping out of nowhere these days, this restaurant is slowly but surely gaining a following because of their pearl milk tea drinks.
But personally, it's not just the drinks that make me visit this store each and everytime I find myself in Megamall.
For one thing, I love their Grilled Chicken Curry (Php225). Their version has more curry sauce as compared to the one I patronize in Singapore, but just as tasty. It's sweet and a little spicy, combined with tender chicken strips infused with the just the right amount of marinade. Yum!

Oh! And they top it with a sunny side egg. Double yummy! =D

It also comes with a small side salad with thousand island dressing. I usually skip this though, as I find the dressing a little overpowering.
Bubble Tea Restaurant is popularly known for their milk tea drinks. I, however, am more partial to their milkshakes, particularly their strawberry-flavored one, selling for Php135, medium size.
What I love about their shakes is the fact that they include tapioca or sago pearls into their concoction. It's not too sweet and you get an exctra dose of vanilla soft serve ice cream on top. I could just have this everyday! =D
Bubble Tea Restaurant also tries to provide a more personal dining experience. Servers are very welcome and accommodating, and very knowledgable. Heck! They also include a personalized thank you note on your receipt. Now that's service.
My one major gripe with them is that they haven't opened a branch in the south yet. Calling Bubble Tea Restaurant! Open one here please! Maybe in MOA? =D
