Here’s my new go to dessert to serve when we have parties at home. Especially for visitors who come from other countries. It’s so easy to serve, no hassle at all.
They have a modern way to serve taho. At first, I was weirded out with the straw, but when I tried it, it was really genius. Gone are the sticky and messy ways of eating taho. Here, it’s already sealed and everything is already inside the cup. Then it comes with a big straw so you could just sip the pearls and taho out. No more sticky spoons or dripping cups to dispose of.
What’s good about it is its perfect serving size. They also have a medium and large size if this small size isn’t good enough for you. You can also have them lessen the syrup so it won’t be too sweet. In fairness, I love how this taho boy tastes. Real yummy!
Don’t you just hate it when you’re expecting a certain taste and it’s not quite just right?! Well I did and it sucks! I was craving for some Mrs. Fields nibblers and was so excited when I saw one of their stalls in SM Megamall bldg. B. I hurriedly bought some and rushed off to pick up my kids from school. As I sat in the car, I grabbed one of the cookies and bit into it hoping for the usual Mrs. Fields cookie goodness. BUT to my dismay, it didn’t taste anything like I expected. It din’t taste fresh (as the sales lady claimed).
To think I paid full price for it. They should be selling them at 70% off! If that were the case, my expectations would have been lower and I wouldn’t be ranting.
Well, if they are fresh cookies, then there’s something wrong with how they were baked 😦 At least now I know where to get my Mrs. Fields fix. Greenhills Promenade, Shangri-La Mall, and Rockwell have never let me down in terms of freshness of their cookies. I think I just better stick to these 3 branches. It would be nice if people who sell food would be consistent with the quality of food they produce. It wouldn’t be a bad thing right?
After more than a year, we’ve finally tried Yabu. We were checking out SM Aura and ended up having dinner at Yabu since there were only 3 restaurants (Coco, an italian resto, and Yabu) open at the top floor. Happy Lemon (which had a tiny cockroach crawling inside–but I still bought :-P) and Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf are also already open.
Anyway, we wanted to see what the Yabu craze was all about. I’m not a food critique, don’t have the expertise to do so, but I just share my personal experience. And for this recent Yabu experience, it was a great one!
We tried their bestseller—the wagyu of pork as they call it. It was WORTH IT!
As I bit into the katsu (without sauce yet), I felt the crunchiness of the outside, and within a second, my teeth touched the soft and tender pork inside tasting its natural juice. At this moment, I knew our order was a winner! So I try my second bite, this time dipping it in the katsu sauce…it was perfection!
To top it off, they had unlimited rice (which was the best rice ever!), cabbage, fruits, pickles, and miso soup. What more can you ask for? My gosh, it was sooo filling!
But nonetheless, we would definitely come back for more katsu yum!
Btw, they have a contest on their website, the katsu craze! http://yabu.ph/igallery/. You might wanna join, who knows, you might win an iPhone just by posting your katsu experience on their new app. Check out the link for more information.
