Authentic taste of China

One reason why Filipinos love Chinese cuisine is our shared affinity for spiciness. Many Chinese dishes incorporate spiciness as a significant element. It’s no secret that Filipinos enjoy spicy food, using it to season our dishes or as a dip to complement our favorites. Honey Tang, the recently opened Chinese restaurant known for its spicy dishes, offers a “malatang” flavor that brings an authentic taste of China straight to your table.

From beef meats to seafood favorites, diners will definitely taste its authenticity, especially with its hot pot side dishes that perfectly goes well with Mala ban or Dry Mala and can be customized to fit a diner’s liking.

Diners should not miss trying the restaurant’s Mala Ban, also known as spicy mix, originating from the vibrant and fiery cuisine of Sichuan province in southwestern China. Think of Mala Ban as a fusion of hot pot and spicy garlic noodles. The numbing and spicy sauce pairs well with virtually everything. Mala Soup features various mushrooms such as enoki mushrooms, white mushrooms, shiitake mushrooms, mushroom balls, large mushrooms, and brown mushrooms. Additionally, it includes shrimp, crab balls, sausage, pea seedlings, puffer fish strips, and romaine lettuce. The best part about Mala Ban is that everyone can customize their sauce and ingredients.

The dry version is perfect for days when you crave something creamy, refreshing, and spicy.

Mango Dream, Panda Milktea and Mango Slush

Refreshing summer delights

With so many milk tea, fresh tea, and juice options available in the Philippines now, what sets CoCo Fresh Tea & Juice apart from other milk tea brands is their commitment to using only the freshest fruits and tea leaves in all of their drinks.

This milk tea brand originates from Taiwan, the birthplace of milk tea, with the first CoCo store opened by Tommy Hung in the Tamsui District of Taipei in 1997. They offer a wide array of drinks, including Fruit Teas, Milk Tea, Juice, Latte, and Fresh Tea.

Given the hot weather, we decided to try their latest offerings: The Mango Dream and Mango Slush, which are perfect for this hot weather.

The Mango Dream is a tropical, refreshing drink crafted with sweet mango puree and mango slush, layered with a scoop of creamy cloud to create the dreamy drink. The Mango Slush, on the other hand, is a refreshing tropical mango-flavored slush.

For those who love milk tea but prefer it less sweet, the Panda Milk Tea is a great choice. The milk is creamy, and the pearls are chewy without being rubbery. It’s called Panda because it features both black and white tapioca pearls.

CoCo is located on the 3rd floor, Lucky Chinatown
