Our day job is situated near a mall. There’s always something new to try, especially when it comes to food. But we are just too lazy or more of busy to line up to avail the latest craze. Then one weekday, just after the mall opened, we were on our way to a craft shop to buy something for the shop, we noticed that there was no line in FRNK Milk Bar. Usually, there’s a long line here. Out of curiosity, we went inside the store.
It was clean and very well lit and “instagrammable”. There’s even a nook there depicting the place where FRNK originated. There was even a sakura tree. Definitely, they know their target market, the millenials who are very visual.
As we were the only customers during our visit, we have the full attention of the staffs. Upon their recommendation, we tried their 1. Dirty Maccha (P95/small; P110/tall) and 2. Baked Purple Chizu (P115/small; P150/tall).
We waited for just a few minutes and our orders were ready. The Dirty Maccha tasted playfully with sweetness and bitterness that came out perfectly balanced – must be the dark chocolate and matcha. On the other hand, Baked Purple Chizu will surely delight Ube lovers. Brightly colored drink, sweet but not sugary.
For the price, we think their offerings are reasonable. The price point is at par with the other popular milk tea shop although their servings is smaller. We do not mind the serving size because you can easily taste that the ingredients used were of premium quality.
For cheese /milk lovers, they will enjoy drinking it every day. But for us who just want to try other stuff than the usual milk tea, this is a welcome addition to the market. We don’t think we will have it every day since before we finish our orders, we already have this “umay” factor, we can safely say we enjoyed our order and won’t have second thoughts about recommending it to others.
