I have always been a coffee person. But there are just times when I just want to take a break from the espresso-frappuccino-lite-with-irish creme-and-double-shot-espresso drink that I usually get. That’s the time when I turn to milk teas for refreshment. So far, I’ve liked Happy Lemon and Gong Cha. But then I read in some blogs about this milk tea place that’s called Dakasi. So, I went over to their Market! Market! branch to try it out.
This milk tea place actually started in Taiwan. But now, it already has a lot of branches in China and other southeast asian countries, like in the Philippines.
At first glance, the place kinda looked like Happy Lemon, because of the prominent bright yellow and white colors of the store. I love that it’s very well-lit and that somehow makes the experience a cheery one. Members of the staff are quite friendly and accommodating. And the whole place looked clean.
There are a lot of varieties of milk teas to choose from like Jasmine milk tea and Taiwan Holly leaf milk tea. I tried their bestseller, Dakasi Bubble milk tea. It’s sweeter than I would have wanted it. I’m not sure if I could ask them to lessen the sugar content, like what I do at Gong Cha. But the tapioca balls are soft and easy to chew. And they don’t get stuck in the straw like what happens sometimes which makes drinking these kind of drinks a little difficult.
Overall, I enjoyed my first experience at Dakasi Market! Market! branch (which is located near Lord Stowe’s bakery and just right in front of Serendra). I’ll come back to try the other milk teas.
