Experience "Sakura Season" at Tokyo Bubble Tea

Experience and taste the flavors of the famed Sakura Season at Tokyo Bubble Tea, with their new Sakura Milk Shake and Sakura Milk Tea, along with unique dishes to make your dining experience special. 

The two new variants add to the impressive range of milk teas at Tokyo Bubble Tea Restaurant, complemented by an equally impressive range of comforting Japanese and Asian-inspired dishes.

"This is what Tokyo Bubble Tea is about, giving a special experience of Tokyo to our guests. Through our offering of Sakura milk tea and milk shake, it's like stepping onto the Sakura Season and witnessing the cherry blossoms bloom in every sip," said Reagan Tan, President and CEO of Tokyo Bubble Tea. 

Cherry blossom-painted Japanese paper lanterns adorn the ceiling, and a life-sized cherry blossom tree greets customers as they enter Tokyo Bubble Tea Restaurant. To get into the Sakura Season vibe, we were served Tokyo Bubble Tea's new Sakura Milk Shake (P 175 Large/P 165 Medium), a refreshing blend of green tea, milk, and vanilla essence topped off with aromatic cherry essence that gives a distinct color and flavor reminiscent of the Sakura Season. Refreshing and not too sweet, just perfect to beat the summer heat.

Then, a variety of dishes rolled out from Tokyo Bubble Tea's kitchens, starting with the unique and inventive Bulgogi Nachos (P 245), crunchy nachos topped with spicy mayo, onion, tomato and carrot strips, and beefy bulgogi for a rich fusion of Asian flavors. Mildly spicy, this one's a cool starter, and if the heat from the Korean spices get to you, have a tall glass of Sakura Milk Tea or Sakura Milk Shake by your side to temper the heat.

This is then followed by the elegantly plated Nippon Ebi Maki (P 285), panko breaded prawn rolled in sushi rice topped with mango and fish roe on a layer of melted mozzarella cheese. The crunch of the crisp breaded prawn and the soft rice and mango combine for a delicious contrast in textures. And don't forget the layer of melted mozzarella cheese for another layer of rich and creamy flavor and texture. This dish tastes as good as it looks, and great when paired with the new Sakura milk tea or milk shake.

Next up, Tokyo Bubble Tea's Samurai Burger (P 248), tender and juicy grilled pork patty with  apple sauce, sweet honey mustard and lettuce on a sesame seed bun, served with a side of potato frits. The combination of sweet and savory flavors works well, complementing the juicy yet subtle flavor of the pork patty.

Perfectly grilled, one experiences a medley of flavors with every bite. Served with Tokyo Bubble Tea's signature potato frits, with a deliciously crisp outer layer, this one's a meal in itself, or a light snack.

For larger appetites, go for the Grilled Porkchop with Roasted Tomato Sauce (P 248) grilled pork cutlet marinated in tomatoes topped with mozzarella and caramelized onion on rice. Simply dig in with a spoon as strings of melted cheese wrap around the flavorful and tender pork and rice for one comforting dish.

Omurice with Steak Mushroom Sauce and Hamburg Steak (P 248), rich steak sauce on omelet and rice with grilled Hamburg Steak, another of Tokyo Bubble Tea's large plates for hefty appetites. The omelet wrapped rice, rich gravy and flavorful patty with a beef and pork blend is another winner.

Korean Bibimbap (P 285), tender ground beef with rice, white onion, garlic, Korean sauce, zucchini, carrots, bean sprouts, spinach and mushrooms topped with an egg and chili paste on a hot stone bowl. Traditional, comforting flavors in a bowl.

For dessert, Tokyo Bubble Tea Restaurant pulls out all the stops with the Sakura Season theme with its Sakura Mango Roll (P 550 Whole/P 120 Slice). The subtle cherry essence and the sweet, tart mangoes and cream offer  unique flavors.

Craving for chocolate? No worries. Go for the Chocolate Caramel Cake, rich and moist, and just right for choco-holics like me.

Why not have another round with one of Tokyo Bubble Tea's many milk tea variants, like the Royal Milk Tea (P 125 Large/ P 115 Medium) or Honey Dew Melon Milk Tea (P 125 Large/P 115 Medium) to complete your Tokyo Bubble tea experience? To celebrate the Sakura Season and the launch of the new milk tea variants, Tokyo Bubble Tea also introduced an Instagram photo challenge last April 7, where diners can win P 500 worth of Tokyo Bubble Tea gift certificates when they upload their photo with the cherry blossom tree found at all Tokyo Bubble Tea branches while holding a Sakura Milk Tea or Sakura Milk Shake.
