Still scared to order milk tea?
Here’s a milk tea house that will bring back your love for this yummy, yummy health drink.
One of the most exciting milk tea houses in the Metro, Tea Monkey not only serve tea, it also boasts its authentic Japanese Tamayaki that will surely satisfy your taste buds.
They have a wider drink selection compared to competitors.
Must try: Tea Monkey Special and Green tea with yakult.
Tamayaki comes in three variants. Charlie Chimp (original), Gorilla George (sweet and spicy), King Kong (with wasabi sauce). If you are as bold as I am when it comes to food, you will definitely love.
They also have hunger busters for those with bigger appetite.
Chicken fillet sandwich served with Jap mayo, lettuce, onions, tomato and ciabatta bread.
For rice lovers, you can opt for chicken fillet or pork belly with rice. Both come with 3 flavors: black pepper, honey and cumin.
Not too hungry? Try their crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside, quaffle with your choice of flavor and designer dip.
The selection was so good we went back to try some of their dishes on the menu. I ordered King kong but was served with Charlie Chimp which was quite disappointing because I only crave for a spicy Tamayaki. The staff said “nakalimutan po kasi na King kong order nyo, eto nalang po yung wasabi sauce, Masarap din naman po yan.”
Yes, no apology was given.
I was not even given a choice whether to accept or not what she incorrectly prepared for me.
Miguel on the other hand, was satisfied with his pork belly.
Overall, I will give Tea Monkey a 4 out of five stars. The other star goes to customer service improvement.
Visit Tea Monkey at the Ground Floor of SM Hypermarket, Frontera Verde Drive, Ugong Norte, Pasig City.
