April 2013 officially started our family summer vacation as errand in the Monday morning keep on rushing us up. Our one stop shop for everything we can pay for bills would be SM Calamba.
While hubby and my son was lining up to pay those bills, what me and my daughters did was to stroll around the third floor to check the cinema schedule. Beside the cinema area was the Dakasi Milk Tea.
I did not know when this was officially opened but what attracted us to come in are the shimmery yellow and white accents around Dakasi milk tea store especially those big smiley star.
To make the interior attractive, it was accentuated by those stunning high rise building design on their wall.
Where is Dakasi originated?
Dakasi, founded in 1990, has over 400 stores in China alone, and is rapidly growing in Hong Kong, Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia. Each one of these locations is guaranteed to deliver the same high quality of taste and freshness in every cup. February 14 2011, Valentine’s Day, Dakasi opened its first branch in Marquee Mall Pampanga, After the successful first branch, more stores were opened in Metro Manila and other key locations just a few months later. Today, there are already 17 branches all over the Philippines.
Since this is our first time to visit, we asked them their best seller which is the Dakasi Bubble Milk Tea. Large one costs P 100.00 – a little difference with their regular size.
Guess what? My daughters love the taste of Dakasi milk tea for the first time!
If you will check my food blog – foodsonthespot, never that I had a post about milk tea. I tried way back 2011 when Milk Tea craze started to sprout around the metro but because of lactose issues especially me, I opted to stop it nor have a review about it.
Jeng who was too meticulous on what she is drinking especially if its milk tea also stopped. Maybe because the balance between milk and tea that somehow empowers one way or the other dislike her for drinking it.
With the bubble milk tea they ordered, there is the complete balance of all the ingredients between tea, milk and sugar. They keep on raving those black pearl which is freshly pop out to their straw once they sipped it. Actually , they sipped more just to get those little black pearl.
I got to try it and yes, it did not bother my lactose after sharing those several sips with them.
When I checked their menu, these are the must try flavors – Classic Chocolate Milk Tea, Oreo, Okinawa Milk Tea and the Charcoal-Roasted Milk Tea. First time to also encounter their Halo-Halo version in a milk tea house- an ultimate mix of pearls, red beans, jelly and pudding to dig in the Filipino favorites.
Overall, my daughters enjoyed their big milk tea – another way to beat the quench thirst this summer as this is timely when we discovered it.
Just like with other desserts and coffee shops here in SM Calamba, Jam found another place to hang out and would definitely come back to taste more the other flavors.
Dakasi Milk Tea is located at the 3rd floor, beside SM Cinema, SM Calamba Laguna
