Even More Reasons to Love BUBBA LAB

Okay, we have to admit it. BUBBA LAB is our latest addiction. And when a resto or a bar or a cafe (or tea place, in this case) really gets me hooked, I always write about it. (Remember my posts on SKOW, anyone?)

So, what do we love about this awesome tea place? The killer drink. We call it the killer drink because it leaves us wanting more, it makes us restless on late nights and we know Bubba Lab is already closed. *sniff* The drink that I am talking about: The BUBBA FROST SERIES! Woo hoo!

For you, blessed readers, I will share the concoction that has captured our hearts.

STEP 1: Order a large Bubba Frost Series drink (we always order the Fuzzy Melon, or the Choco Milk Tea)
STEP 2: Request for pearls as sinkers. Yes, you can add an extra order of pearls if you want.
STEP 3: This is the key step: request for an extra shot of cream. That's an additional 10 pesos (and calories) to your order, but I tell you: It's an instant upper.

 P.S. You can ask the scienTEAsts to NOT cover the cup yet as you indulge in creamy cheesy goodness. Mmmmmm.

Have you been to Bubba Lab? What are your Bubba Lab favorites? What are your other go-to milk tea places in Marikina? :-)

Hello dearest Marikenyos! I personally decided to take a break in posting while the storms were harassing our lovely city. :-( How are you all doing? I pray that you and your family are all safe and catching up with all the work to do "post-flood".

Speaking of bad weather, a week before the habagat brought about high water levels upon the Marikina River, Mom, Sis and I checked out a Japanese restaurant along Lilac Street (yes, Lilac = another foodie haven) called Crazy Katsu. Their interiors felt cozy, with a very simple but elegant design. Their menu is simple as well: a one-page card filled with special items. I'd definitely go back because everything that we tried was really good!

They also had pudding on the menu for dessert, but I guess we will try that one when we go back ;-)

Here is what we ordered:

 Pork Ginger (140 PhP - really yummy!)

 Chicken Katsu (145 PhP - again, yummy!)

 Katsu Curry (190 PhP - Mom loved this!)

So if you suddenly crave for Japanese (no sushi nor sashimi though), check out Crazy Katsu for terrific meals at affordable prices.
