Bubble Tea - Tomas Morato

Share this article: Facebook Twitter Stumble Upon Digg This Reddit

After having our second child, dates with my wife have become few and far between. Every chance we get to go out by ourselves is always a welcome respite even if it's a strenuous activity like grocery shopping. So after my friend's Friday night small birthday celebration, we stopped over Bubble Tea just to linger on.


Bubble Tea is just along Tomas Morato Ave., located a floor above a ballroom dance studio. The neon sign would be hard to miss.

Looks like Bubble Tea has a lot of fan boys and girls. The restaurant was crowded with young people inside clutching their cellphones, typing away from their laptops, and showing off their new gadgets. The ambiance is very casual perfect for teenage boys and girls, but we didn't mind sitting outside.

My wife and I shared eight Takoyaki Balls. Takoyaki balls are grilled octopus-filled balls made of pancake batter, topped with mayonnaise, katsuobushi and sweet soy sauce. Katsuobushi is a japanese term for dried skipjack tuna flakes. My wife, with her awful cold, said, "walang lasa", which means no taste, but she managed to fill up on 3 pieces. In fairness, we really didn't know what Takoyaki balls taste like but I personally enjoyed it.


I also ordered Royal Milk Tea. Nothing special about it though.


After a few minutes
