This restaurant’s name is unbelievably MISLEADING.

When a restaurant dares to call itself “Tokyo Bubble Tea,” you expect them to deliver bubble tea that is worth every penny you are paying for it. Well, if you for one second believe what this restaurant says they are, you’re in for a wild surprise.

Forget about your expectations, because it’s something else entirely. I wonder why they even bothered to call themselves “Tokyo Bubble Tea,” when in fact it is more than clear enough with anyone who has a tongue that they are actually so much more than just awesome bubble tea! 😀 From flavourful maki rolls to sumptuous cakes, they have everything a foodie can ask for in a Japanese restaurant!

Fiery Maki Rolls and MoreTokyo-Bubble-Tea-Tuna-Crips-MakiTokyo-Bubble-Tea-Spicy-MakiNever knew that spicy maki could taste so good! Tokyo Bubble Tea has them in every kind, from the classic ones to really creative ones. I especially like the Crunchy Midori Maki. Be sure to try it when you visit them!

Rice Meals for the HungryTokyo-Bubble-Tea-Teriyaki-DoriaNeedless to say, they have that one thing every Asian restaurant has – rice bowls! I love their Doria meals so much because it’s topped with loads of OOEY, GOOEY CHEESE ❤ Yummy and really filling!

So there you have my list of faves from Tokyo Bubble Tea. I’m sure you’d love to try them out! And of course, don’t forget to order one of their awesome drinks to go with your meal! 😉

Well, it doesn’t taste like what it says it is.

The-Coffee-Bean-Guiltless-Chocolate-CakeThe-Coffee-Bean-Hazelnut-CoffeeHazelnut-Coffee-Guiltless-Chocolate-Cake-2I’m not exactly a health-junkie kind of person and I love eating desserts. I don’t count my calories and just order what I think tastes good and looks like it tastes good.

So when I saw that The Coffee Bean has this “Guiltless” Chocolate Cake that has a velvety look to it topped with some thin chocolate shavings, it just looked so good I had to try it. I am so surprised they call it “guiltless” because seriously every bite of  this awesome thing tastes like SIN! It is not too sweet but not bland and rather has the rich, deep taste of pure chocolate. The mousse so smooth it feels like eating something in between cream and air.

At one point, I felt guilty for having ordered another slice 🙂

 

Sit Like a King, Eat Like a Viking

There are many reasons why Vikings is one of the top-of-mind buffets in Manila, PH. From an overwhelming variety of desserts that greet you upon entry, to that sushi bar that pulls at your tummy strings every time, there are many things you shouldn’t miss out when eating like a warrior.

Caviar & Cheese for Starters 

They have so many kinds of cheese I just have to get all of them, especially the soft and chewy mozzarella bites.

 The Sushi and Maki Bar

Nope, that’s an understatement. It could as well be a standalone sushi-maki mini restaurant.25521013_10159648791925697_1488299707_o
