Let’s go back to 2018. The moment I heard the news that a BENCH/ Cafe was opening their flagship store, I was so thrilled. But then I found out it was in Bonifacio High Street, I was devastated, especially when some of my friends who work in and near the area informed me how delicious their meals are. I live and work on the North side of the Metro so travelling there would be difficult but not anymore! Fellow North peeps, BENCH/ Cafe just opened their fourth branch and it is located at the Triangle North of Manila or simply Trinoma. You can find them at the ground floor right across Landmark department store and beside Mister Donut.
I’ve mentioned a couple of times that I no longer try new milk tea shops. There is just so many of them ad they basically offer the same thing. (When will it end?! I don’t know.) But I discovered one that I really love which led me to narrow down and make a list. And since I no longer crave milk tea like before, I just visit those in the list when I’m really in the mood to drink some milk tea. The reason I decided to write about this one because they have the rare sinker that I love. And that is the popping bobba! You see not all milk tea shops offer this add on. So when I stumbled upon a small kiosk called Go! Bubble Tea at Wilcon City Center, I decided to try it.
Have you been to Wilcon City Center in Visayas Avenue? I mentioned before that the place underwent a renovation and honestly, the building looks way better. Wilcon City Center is now air-conditioned and there are more places to eat one of which is Peak-a-Flakes. Peak-a-Flakes opened early last year but we only got to visit them last month. Judging by their logo which consists of a cone and a plate icon, you know that they offer meals and ice cream. And I was not wrong! They do offer rice toppings, mixed rice, ramen and a selection of milk tea and ice cream desserts.
These past weeks I have been truly busy with work mainly because I am helping out another team. I’m not complaining though as I love to help and I enjoy the work. But with this busyness comes a small problem. I couldn’t attend blog events. Since I also need to recharge, I would take my family out for a quick lunch or dinner. We try to visit restaurants or cafes we haven’t visited before like the ones I posted recently. In this blog post, I am sharing with you another first.
I have never been to any Zark’s Burgers let alone tried any of their offerings. But after shopping during SM North EDSA’s sale, we received a free treat from SM x BDO – free nachos! Who doesn’t like nachos, right? Plus, it is free and I’m curious why a huge number of people lined up during Zark’s burger promo. Do you remember seeing the news? I sure did! So how was it, you ask? First here are the food ordered.
