I am a big fan of hot soy milk, hot milk tea, hot coffee–everything hot!
When I was in Singapore, I used to buy hot soy milk from Mr. Bean almost every other night for S$ 1.40 (PhP 48.00). Their hot soy milk is really tasty… and yummy! I love it so much!
And so when I went back to the Philippines, I searched for Mr. Bean and found out that are only a few branches, not even near where I live. 🙁
But this post is not about Mr. Bean.
On June 25, I stumbled upon a new shop at Robinsons Place Manila! It’s called YummySoy and it’s a franchise from Singapore! I remember seeing a few YummySoy branches while in Singapore but I was more inclined to buy from Mr. Bean. 🙂
Anyway, YummySoy Philippines opened its first branch at the 3rd level of Robinsons Place Manila Midtown wing on March 7, 2013. YummySoy PH aims to deliver fresh, good quality soy-based products at affordable prices in a contemporary ambiance.
The place reminds me of an orange version of Happy Lemon or Serenitea. 🙂 The tables and chairs including the counters are kept clean. They also have a slideshow of their customers (including some celebrities) holding YummySoy products.
This is their menu:
Their soy milk comes in a variety of flavors which are mostly served cold. Only the classic flavor can be served hot.
When purchasing from them, you can choose the sugar level that you want. I always choose the 100% (normal) sugar level. Even if it’s the full level, it is not very sweet.
YummySoy PH claims that their chilled bean curd products are made from 100% NGMO (non-genetically modified organisms) beans. Chilled beancurd is also known as cold taho. According to them, it melts in your mouth. Comes in a variety of flavors as well. According to another blogger, the salesperson asked them if they wanted to try the different flavors first before making a purchase. Maybe I’d try this one next time.
Slurppy is beancurd that you could sip. 🙂 I’ve tried something like this before and it’s really yummy.
The good stuff you can get from soy:
I have been craving for hot soymilk ever since I arrived so I ordered one regular hot soymilk for PhP 65.00. It took about 10 minutes before I was served. Surprisingly long even though I was their only customer at that time. I was also a bit disappointed to see that it was smaller than what I usually order from Mr. Bean. I should have ordered the larger one! And it’s more expensive than the ones from SG. I thought it should be cheaper here!
In fairness to them, they are still cheaper compared to milk tea and designer coffee. :))
I went on to take a sip. It was hot… which is good! But the taste… it’s just oh so different from what I was used to. Yes, it tastes like soy milk but there is a difference in flavor when compared to the ones being served by Mr. Bean. The one from YummySoy is a bit bland in taste. It seems like it was diluted with more water than it should be.
The ones from Mr. Bean tastes creamy and milky… I miss that taste. 🙁
For the love of soy milk, maybe I should try their other flavors (albeit cold). Maybe I should try their chilled bean curd next time. Maybe I’d love that.
Have you tried YummySoy? What do you think?
