Finally! Starbucks Tea Drinks! :D

Been waiting for Starbucks to have milktea and finally they decided to have a new set of blended tea beverage. The Hojicha Tea Jelly and Green Tea with Red beans.
Both are awesome you must try them out! Especially to those milktea lovers out there!

Pan de Amerikana, The upside down restaurant

It was my cousin who invited me to join her to have lunch at Pan de Amerikana. At first I thought maybe she just wanted to have some pandesal (bread roll) for lunch *weird* because usually in the Philippines, when you hear Pan de +something, most likely it's a bakery, and Filipinos would love to eat pandesal at breakfast. Then she said that the place is nice and it's interesting because it's an upside down restaurant. So I got thrilled to see the place and said yes for a Sunday morning jog and brunch at Pan de Amerikana.
So we went and I was impressed and surprised not just because it's an upside down restaurant, but because they serve good and very cheap Filipino food as well. They have Adobo, Bicol express, Chicken pandan and a lot more! Ranging from Php40 to php100. They also have Halo-halo! :D The place is very cozy and relaxing, an indoor garden setting while having lunch or dinner... I just love the place, food and the idea.
Although it's weird Pan de Amerikana then Filipino food? But who cares? As long as they serve great food, that's all that matters! :D

As I have been trying all the latest drink craze here in Manila, I finally tried HAPPY LEMON.
The first time I saw Happy Lemon was when I watched a movie in Greenhills Promenade. That time I was really curious because the store is located beside Starbucks and I was wondering why there were a lot of people inside Happy Lemon compared to Starbucks. That was July of 2011, and after that long curiosity I was finally able to taste one of their recommended flavors last January 22, 2012. Yes I know I'm such a loser :P

Anyway, so I tried the weirdest sounding drink that I have heard as of yet, COCA with ROCK SALT AND CHEESE. When I first knew about it I was like, WHAT?? But then if you're into Gastronomic indulgence, I'm sure you have heard and tried a lot of weird sounding beverages/food, and I assure you the drink was not bad at all. Well honestly at first it was just like an ordinary chilled chocolate drink but after one zip you'll taste the salt and the cheese and that's the twist. But I was really expecting something more, like a creamier chocolate drink with more cheese and a bit of salt. So I'm going to rate the drink 7 out of 10. Although, up to this moment seems like the salty taste of that drink is still in my tongue and I'm craving for more! Well I will try their other flavors ASAP and I'll make sure to post them in here.

My friend tried another Happy Lemon Rock salt and cheese drink. Green tea with rock salt and cheese. I'll try that one too... soon. :D
