PASIG FOOD TRIP: Kuya J Restaurant’s Summer Sizzlers

PASIG FOOD TRIP: Kuya J Restaurant’s Summer Sizzlers

Creamy Mango Pandan

Kuya J Filipino Restaurant has a newly opened branch just across Banco de Oro (BDO) at the ground level of SM Center Pasig which is near Tiendesitas.  Upon the invitation of a friend, my Kuya (brother) and I decided to check out this branch. It is a good thing that the invitation came at a perfect time when I was craving for some Filipino food and cool dessert because of the scorching summer heat. 

A cool dessert always served as a sweet ending to a hearty meal. This is a twist of the original buco (young coconut) pandan recipe. Kuya J’s refreshing twist of the infamous buco pandan dessert is called Creamy Mango Pandan which has an intense mango flavor. An order would only cost you Php80. This well-rounded dessert is good for 2 to 3 persons. That of course will depend on how much dessert you consume to conclude a meal. For me, I could devour the whole thing as I like it so much.

Tablea Coffee Flan

I’ve always thought that our next door neighbor in the province serves the best Leche Flan in the whole wide world.  Well, that belief changed late last year when my brother and I encountered the delicious combination of coffee and cocoa-infused chocolate dessert at Kuya J Restaurant here in the Metro.

You could not deny the fact that coffee and chocolate are a match made in dessert heaven. In an ode to the classic combo, Kuya J food development team created a unique dessert called Tablea Coffee Flan (Php85). 

This Batangas tablea-flavored flan with coffee caramel is topped with dried coconut meat and pieces of barquillos (crispy egg wafer sticks), which happened to be my childhood favorite snack!  Wonderfully delicious!  I’ll definitely come back for more.  It comes across as eating something sinful but I super duper love it!  


Fried Halo-halo

The traditional cooler Halo-halo (a popular Filipino dessert with mixtures of shaved ice and evaporated milk to which are added various boiled sweet beans, jello and fruits) comes with a unique twist – the Fried Halo-halo (Php135) a la mode

Kuya J’s version has ube (purple yam), white beans, young corn, nata de coco (a chewy, translucent, jelly-like foodstuff produced by the fermentation of coconut water), lanka (jackfruit) and butter beans stuffed in pastry wrapper and deep fried to give the halo-halo a warm take. Then it is topped with whipped cream and Vanilla Ice Cream.

A must try! 


For appetizers, Chorizo Dinamitas (stuffed chili pepper with chorizo), Tokwa’t Baboy (tofu and pork), Baked Scallops and the Lumpia Presko (fresh lumpia), were laid out on our table. Whew!  And that’s just the appetizers.
Chorizo Dinamita

I super love Kuya J’s Chorizo Dinamita (Php170.00). These chorizo-stuffed long green chilies are served with garlic mayo on the side. For me, it is just the right blend plus its taste consistently makes me feel good. Did you know that you can specifically request the chef to reduce or adjust the amount of spiciness. A must Try!

Tokwa’t Baboy


A okay!

Lumpia Presko


Crispy Pata

When it comes to Pinoy food, my barometer is the restaurant’s version of Crispy Pata (deep fried pig trotters or knuckes). Crispy pata (Php499) is one of the all-time favorite Filipino dishes served on special occasions in some Filipino households or even everyday in authentic Filipino restaurants.

Kuya J’s Crispy Pata is crispy outside and very tender inside. The attendant sliced our crispy order in front of our very eyes. I think that is a cool idea because it gives somewhat a sense of assurance that your order is really one whole crispy pata, not less. When you hear it crack while being cut, you’ll feel more confident that it is really freshly cooked. Its mouth-watering Crispy Pata is a must try! Outstanding in every sense of the word.  #PerfectPata #TheBestPataInMetroManilaToDate

Humba Binagoongan Fried Rice
There's the bone marrow smiling up at me.
Sick and tired of the usual plain rice served in most restaurants? 
Don’t worry! Kuya J has a lot of variations to the usual plain rice. 
I was so happy when they served us the very delectable Humba Binagoongan Fried Rice (P175), topped with bell peppers, red onions,  green mangoes and chopped binagoongang pork. Humba is a Visayan stewed pork dish similar to adobo while bagoong is a fish or shrimp paste condiment 

Bagoong rice is what I always ordered whenever I am in Thai restaurants. I love how the acidity from the strips of green mango cut through the saltiness of the shrimp paste. Filipino cuisine not being too far off from Thai, Kuya J’s version is sneaky, the humba touches home base as the pork fat melts in my mouth.

Kare kare

Beef Pochero

I am a picky eater when it comes to stews and braises. After eating a piece I am sure this is sure to appear on most if not all the tables of diners in Kuya J.

Beef Pochero Tagalog is a Filipino Stew similar to that of “Nilagang Baka“ (Beef Stew). This dish is complimented by the sweetness of saba banana. The unique sour blend and color is brought-in by the yummy tomato sauce. Aside from the tomato sauce and banana, the chorizo de Bilbao and chick peas are also part of the ingredients. Beef Pochero Tagalog brings out the delightful taste of our Spanish influence.

Kuya J’s Beef Pochero is a very enticing dish. I enjoyed eating its pochero because of its yummy taste. It is best eaten warm along with white rice. 

Try Kuya J’s version of Beef Pochero Tagalog and let me know what you think.

Dalandan Beer

I also had a sample of their Dalandan Beer. I honestly don’t like beer but this was a unique conconction that I don’t want to pass up.  The dalandan provided a refreshing, zesty sensation with a hint of sweetness and apparent taste of beer. It’s actually a nice match to the Sinuglaw and fried dishes.

Kuya J Restaurant serves delicious traditional Filipino dishes, so you’re a complete disgrace to your own culture if you don’t try its food offerings. Kuya J, just like my reliable Kuya, adapted regional local cuisine and added a different take on each dish. Cool, eh! 
The food is delicious and presented well at Kuya J’s. Every item on the menu are well thought off by its Food Development Team (FDT) and approved by its stockholders. 
The orders are very large and very much worth the price. They also provide huge servings of rice and trust me it’s more than enough to fill you up!  Service is always super friendly! All of their employees are quick, polite, and professional. The restaurant is well lighted and has a modern Filipino design plus comfortable seats.  I salute Kuya J restaurant for considering all the important details in the industry.

Philippine Women’s University In The Eyes of One of Its Educators

Philippine Women’s University In The Eyes of One of Its Educators

On March 8, 2015, we celebrated International Women’s Day and yet the first school for women in Asia is in a lot of trouble—the Philippine Women’s University (PWU). It is a private, non-sectarian educational institution which would mark its centennial in academic year 2019-2020.

STI wins auction of PWU foreclosed properties

PWU properties along Taft Avenue in Malate, Manila, where the PWU campus is located, plus another property located at Pilar Hidalgo Lim Street, Malate, Manila, registered in the name of PWU, were allegedly won by STI Education Systems Holdings, Inc. (STI) in the auction sales involving extra-judicial foreclosures on Wednesday, March 18, 2015.

STI has also filed a petition for foreclosure of the Jose Abad Santos Memorial School (JASMS) Quezon City campus; and a property in Davao under the name of Unlad Resources Development Corporation (Unlad), the corporate arm of the Benitez family.

PWU Rehabilitation Plan

Asked for comment, PWU President Dr. Jose Francisco Benitez said PWU did not contest the auction because an earlier case for rehabilitation was filed before the Manila Regional Trial Court by former Senator Helena Z. Benitez, chairperson and long-time creditor of the beleaguered Philippine Women’s University.

I would like to assure all of you that we are pursuing all legal actions necessary to protect the interests of our students, faculty and the schools. The school remains open and operations are normal. We are accepting enrollment for next year and are heartened by your support. Despite press releases from STI, we are still in control of PWU and our direction is clear for the future of PWU,” Dr. Jose Francisco Benitez said in a statement.

The Rehabilitation Plan calls for a 10-year period which will allow reasonable payment to all of PWU’s creditors (including former Sen. Benitez and STI) through the sale of Benitez family assets and cashflow from the operations of the schools. PWU is still waiting for the issuance of the Commencement Order on the Rehab Petition. If granted, it will invalidate the auction sale and pave the way for the approval of the rehabilitation plan of PWU. If denied, PWU has one year within which to redeem the PWU properties. The same holds true for the possible Foreclosure auction sale of the JASMS QC property, scheduled for March 24.

PWU Loan History

The foreclosure petition stemmed from PWU’s alleged failure to pay almost P1 billion in accumulated loans, interest, and expenses. STI has acquired PWU’s loan with BDO worth P223 million in 2011, and loaned another P198 million to Unlad.

PWU earlier offered STI P644 million to settle the dispute which the latter rejected.

An Educator’s Perspective

On the face of the foreclosure of its properties initiated by STI, it is not only the owners, students and their parents who will be affected but also the educators who dedicated their lives in giving a brighter future to our less fortunate brothers and sisters.

With all the legal battles and media frenzy, no one dared to ask the teachers of PWU what their take is on said foreclosure. I decided to interview Ms. Angel Velasco Shaw, an Associate Professor at the Philippine Women’s University School of Fine Arts and Design, Director of the Institute for Heritage, Culture and the Arts, and Research Coordinator.

Prof. Shaw is an American-born Filipina who has been teaching for 23 years at universities such as New York University (11 years), Hunter College of The City University of New York, Columbia University, Pratt Institute and The New School. In addition, she’s also a practicing filmmaker, media artist, freelance curator, and cultural organizer.

Here is an excerpt of my interview with Prof. Shaw:

Professor Shaw, can you give me a little background about yourself please. When did you start teaching at PWU?

I have been going back and forth to the Philippines for the past 30 years working on art and cultural projects, and teaching workshops in Metro Manila, Dumaguete, Bacolod, Bago City and Baguio City. In July 2013, I relocated to Manila and began teaching at Philippine Women’s University in August 2013, first as a graduate mentor and advisor to graduate students in the School of Fine Arts and Design as well as a part-time faculty and faculty/curriculum development consultant. In June 2014, I was appointed Director of the newly inaugurated Institute for Heritage, Culture and the Arts, an Associate Professor and Research Coordinator and I continue to teach undergraduate and graduate courses.

What is your take on the dispute between Benitez family and STI? Do you support the Benitez family on this issue?

While I can understand that you would like me to address your questions in the specific context of the Benitez/STI dispute, I would prefer to focus my responses in a less direct way, albeit pertinent, as I feel that the media (mainstream and otherwise) is focusing on an issue that while important and valid, I feel is not necessarily a public matter in the way that it is being framed and continues to be reported on.

Having said this, my opinion about their business agreement, is at this point, irrelevant to what transpired over the years as far as their partnership and subsequent dissolve goes.

In 2011, the Benitez family entered into an agreement with STI whereby the latter assumed PWU’s loan with BDO in exchange for certain considerations. Are you personally in favor of that deal? Why?

Although, it is true that the outcome of this dispute will affect me as a concerned educator/employee in more than one-way. I do think it is of utmost importance that the media present other voices and experiences at PWU, that of faculty, students and staff. So thank you for this opportunity. If you would like responses from any of my students about their experiences at PWU, please let me know and I will try to arrange this.

Since my employment at PWU, I have had the great pleasure of working with Dean Josephine Turalba (School of Fine Arts and Design) and President Francisco Benitez. The two of them share the same pedagogical vision as myself, one which acknowledges and upholds the importance and value of providing the best possible academic education and equal access to education regardless of their financial, ethnic, regional, religious, gender backgrounds.

President Francisco Benitez has a forward-thinking pedagogical vision that I have not personally encountered in quite the same way, over the course of years of interactions with scholars and artists on several Philippine college campuses where I have had the opportunity to speak at and/or conduct workshops. This is not to say, that these campuses do not have progressive pedagogical practices as these campuses also have dedicated faculty members and excellent mission and vision statements.

Due to President Benitez’s commitment to upgrade the quality of education and my positive experiences of working under his visionary leadership and scholarship, I choose to come on board as a full time faculty member despite the fact that I had the opportunity seek employment at other universities at the time that I was making the decision in April 2014. His dedication to the largely underprivileged student body—sons and daughters of overseas workers and other low-income earners is unwavering. As an academician and scholar, President Benitez has an excellent understanding of how a liberal arts university should be run and the academic opportunities needed to provide students with the best quality education available to them which a university like PWU can support. He understands the balance needed in departmental curricula to strive to uphold and upgrade towards providing students with sufficient practical job skills as well as academic intellectual skills which promote reading/writing and critical thinking proficiency necessary for a student to compete in a job locally and globally.

As someone who has not only taught children of Filipino overseas workers enrolled at Hunter College in New York, but now, of their children enrolled at PWU, I have a good understanding of the hardships that parents and children face and encounter and the degree of difficulty of staying in school and believing that higher education can help them do more than just survive in an imbalanced Philippine economy where there are more have-nots, than haves. Vocational skills and job placement is not enough to help these youths to live and actively participate in creating a stronger, more balanced Philippine nation. PWU has been on a path for 95 years to grow the nation in a humble way, and not merely to educate people to participate as laborers both locally and globally.

President Benitez has spoken on several occasions to his PWU constituents about students, faculty and staff being stakeholders in the university. In all of my years of teaching, I never genuinely felt like a “stakeholder” until teaching at PWU.

If Tanco of STI assures the public that PWU will remain an educational institution in his group’s overall plan, would you support him instead or will you be loyal to the Benitezes?

My commitment first and foremost is to my students and to the pedagogical philosophy of President Benitez who, as far as I can see, since I began at PWU, is not only dedicated to improving his students and faculty’s abilities to compete academically in Metro Manila and nationwide, but within the Southeast Asian region and globally. He understands full well the kinds of challenges that PWU faces in the local and global academic and educational arena. I am witnessing how he is trying to meet these challenges through his interactions with my undergraduate and graduate students, and university-wide events where he has spoken quite frankly and eloquently about PWU’s mission and vision.

It is important to stress to the public that there is not one form, system or ideological perspective about what constitutes education nor is there one simple way to define what pedagogical practices are and what their approaches and attributes will contribute to a society. Formal, informal and alternative learning practices are multi-faceted with a plethora of outcomes that might not be seen immediately, but over a period of time. And yet, such methodologies can be used immediately by students with concrete results like employment in their respective fields of study. Education is not a monolithic structure although it is simpler for members of a society to understand it as such. Is education a “business”? Yes, it is but as mentioned, there are different models with similar yet different potential outcomes.

My own approach to education is a wholistic one that includes an understanding that the institution, educators, administrators, students and staff must strive to work together in a mutually beneficial harmonious manner that supports the mental, economic, and spiritual health of a community in relationship to other communities that comprise a nation. How people working together whether as teacher/learner, administrator/management is based on a vision that provides students with adequate academic and practical skills and tools to do more than just survive. Quality education promotes equal access and potential for upward mobility no matter what one’s ethnic, religious, class, gender, geographic background.

It is my belief, however, that an institution must provide critical thinking tools in order to attain these possibilities for a better life and how an individual contributes to a society can only be obtained if one is given the tools to think and act upon their thoughts, be self-reflexive, value the knowledge base from not just their own life experiences or their family’s, but society’s and then built upon this growing knowledge base which formal and “higher” education can offer. Balance is needed.

PWU is a university that I have come to know and love because I can contribute, in my own small ways, to this vision and mission that I have mentioned briefly, in a wholistic manner. When I first came to PWU, I had no idea that its 95 year old mission and vision would align so closely with my own. In fact, I didn’t know that two of its seven original female founders are somehow related to me—Concepcion Aragon Santiago and Clara Aragon Villanueva—until I came upon their photographs in one of the hallways and saw a woman who resembled my mother in an uncanny way.

I remain committed to my ancestors’ vision and practices no matter where in the world I teach, work as a cultural organizer and cultural practitioner. This is a part of my continuum.

What is your message or appeal to the Benitez family? To the Tanco group?

My appeal is not only to the Benitez and Tanco groups, but to the PWU community of students, faculty, and staff, and to the public at large to take the needed time to reflect on each other’s perspectives, needs, expectations, and fears about what a wholistic education can offer students in the present and future, and what diverse services and needs can be satisfied by such an approach. 

To wrap up the interview the good Professor left this message and quote:

Thank you for your time and for reading my words. 

“For apart from inquiry, apart from the praxis, individuals cannot be truly human. Knowledge emerges only through invention and re-invention, through the restless, impatient, continuing, hopeful inquiry human beings pursue in the world, with the world, and with each other.”      ― Paulo Freire

Upon the invitation of a very good friend, I headed over at Diana Stalder in Gateway Mall in Cubao, Quezon City for its #GoldLaunch of #DianaStalder #AllThatGlittersIsGold campaign.

#JustJulia Beautiful at 18

#JustJulia Beautiful at 18

Today, I attended the press conference of #JustJulia at the 14th floor of Abs-cbn building in Mother Ignacia. This is the second time that I am covering Julia Barreto or Julia Francesca Barretto Baldivia in real life. The soon to be 18-year-old daughter of comedian Dennis Padilla and former actress Marjorie Barreto.

#JustJulia announced at the press conference that she will be celebrating a white, gray and silver-themed debut party at the posh Makati Shangri-La Hotel on March 10. Her gown will be made by no less than the great International Fashion Designer Michael Cinco. 

For her coming out party, the debutante’s hair will be done by John Valle, while Lala Flores will do her makeup. Barretto also enlisted the services of celebrity stylist Liz Uy.

Participating in the traditional 19 candles ceremony are Dani Barretto, Claudia Barretto, Patita Tumpalan, Erich Gonzales, Alora Sasam, Natalia Ortega, Nicole Barretto, Cris Navarro, Marissa Kalaw, Pokwang, RB Chanco, Lala Flores, Denise Heredia, Coy Barretto, Ella Pangilinan, Liz Uy, Janella Salvador, Liza Soberano and Maja Salvador.

For the 18 roses portion, participating are Dennis Padilla, Matteo Guidicelli, Rayver Cruz, Enchong Dee, Khalil Ramos, Robi Domingo, Sam Concepcion, Dominic Roque, Leon Barretto, Mark Barretto, John Barretto, Cholo Barretto, Jason Soong, Mark Soong, Miguel Barretto, John Sweet Lapus, Enrique Gil and Inigo Pascual (her last dance).

European Tour vs. Debut party?

“With all honesty, I never dreamt of having a debut. I never thought that I will have kasi I just want to travel on my birthday. Actually my original plan was to have a short break to travel around Europe. I really want to go around Europe,” she revealed.

#JustJulia’s First dance

Julia said during the press conference that her dad will be her first dance. Julia decided to break the ice with her dad by personally handing him the invitation to her party.

“Surprise kasi yun talaga. Gusto ko na as if walang nangyari. Parang ‘Here’s your invitation, ganyan. So are you going? What’s your outfit?’ siyempre shocked siya. (laughs). Tapos from there then he explained na and I just listened. Hindi na ako masyado nagsalita, nakinig na lang ako,” she shares during her#JustJulia presscon.

Julia also admitted that she personally wanted her dad to be one of her 18 roses and her first dance.

“What’s more important now is that everything’s okay between my dad and I. Gumaan yung loob ko ng 100% and I was genuinely happy. Not to sound so cheesy but wounds don’t heal so fast but then you can’t wait forever. Ika nga life is too short, you can’t wait it might be too late ‘di ba? Pag mangyari yun I’ll be devastated. And also siyempre my special day is coming soon so sabi ko I want him to be there. Eh di ayusin ko na na just be okay again,” she admits.

#JustJulia’s Petition to change her last name. 

A member of the press asked Julia with another issue regarding her petition to change her last name.

“Wow we haven’t even talked about this as a family. It’s the first time I’m speaking about it that I’ve made a decision to share it first with you guys I feel that right now there’s really no need to change my last name. I’m going to keep my dad’s last name. But siyempre that’s my screen name na talaga Julia Barretto. I don’t believe that if I do that he’ll be happy. Why would I do anything that would make my father unhappy di ba? I’m taking it into consideration.”

#JustJulia’s reconciling with her dad was merely a publicity stunt?

During the #JustJulia presscon, Julia got emotional when asked to react on the issue that reconciling with her dad was merely a publicity stunt to boost her image. The pretty actress was clearly hurt by the accusation. ( I am sad that some people can be so mean 🙁 they should take into consideration that Julia is only 17 years old.)

“How can they even think that way? How can you think that a young child wants to get everything okay again with her own father just for publicity? I can’t even embrace that thought. It’s very false. He’s my dad, why wouldn’t I want to be okay with my dad and have him there sa special day ko? I made up with him because I want to be okay with my own father, not for anybody,” she explains.

#JustJulia’s Birthday Wish

Since her parents’ split up in 2007, Julia says that she does not wish for her parents to reconcile anymore as they are already leading very separate lives.

“No, parang hindi ko siya birthday wish kasi my dad’s happy with his partner, his new son who’s turning three, my mom is happy with her children, us. Bakit ako ang tinatanong ninyo? Hindi ko naman relationship yan. I’m seeing they’re both happy with their own lives and wherever they are happy, I am happy there,” she states. 

#JustJulia’s reaction to her Dad’s statement that she can now entertain Suitors

Julia did admit that she’s happy if it is true that her dad will finally allow her to entertain suitors. “Oo nga, na-shock ako dun. Ang sarap niyang pakinggan kasi before when we were kids pa lang, it’s a no-no, bawal boyfriend, bawal ligaw. So nung napanuod ko yung interview niya I was so shocked na okay na sa kanya bigla. I was very touched. Pero wala pa naman so okay lang,” she says.

Julia also revealed that her fans will be giving her a special debut party on March 6, several days earlier than her actual birthday.

Good luck and happy happy birthday #JustJulia. Wishing you the best on your birthday! Stay humble, kind and articulate.

Get to know the real Julia Barretto in her 18th birthday TV special entitled #JustJulia, Beautiful@18, on March 29, 2015 on ABS-CBN’s Sunday Best right after Gandang Gabi Vice.

Three Easy Steps to Quality Health Care in the Philippines

Three Easy Steps to Quality Health Care in the Philippines

I am an ordinary Pinoy. As an ordinary citizen, I find it very difficult to find the right doctor and quickly get an appointment. Whenever a member of my family got sick, it takes about 3 to 5 hours of waiting at the hospital lobby before we could have a face to face consultation with a doctor.  Of course, I am talking about experts on their field like my neurosurgeon and heart specialist who happened to be very in-demand. One of my doctors only had one clinic day per week in a Makati hospital, so you could just imagine how long the queue is.  Sad, but yes, I always almost turned into a statue like the picture above before I could finally have a consultation with my doctors. No offense meant to my doctors.  I love them dearly. They saved my life. 

Finally, the waiting game is over!  The long wait scenario is now a thing of the past. With the latest Health & Lifestyle mobile and web applications, there is now an easier, more convenient way to get you to a doctor or hospital. Introducing the GetMed.
Save your precious time and effort and consider taking these 3 easy steps in setting an appointment to your specialist.

STEP 2. From a comprehensive line-up of Specialties, and based on your present condition, choose your preferred doctor.

STEP 3. Lastly, as soon as you have selected your doctor, you can now make an appointment.

HONEYBON PH: Unveils Sakura Mango Cake

HONEYBON PH: Unveils Sakura Mango Cake

I was super duper excited when my brother and I got invited to the launching of Honeybon’s Sakura Mango Cake at Honeybon Pastry Shop along Katipunan Ave. in Quezon City.

There was a little confusion at first because the signage says “Honeybee Patisserie and Cafe” and the guard on duty pointed us to another location when we asked him where Honeybon Pastry Shop is. We ended up in another establishment at the far end of Katipunan Avenue. We even asked several people along the way but they kept on pointing us to another establishment named Honeymoon. 

We decided to turn around and return to Honeybee. This time around I alighted from the car and asked inside. We’re the second one to arrive. I felt bad for my brother because we ran out of fuel right after we parked our car. 

My brother had to walk under the scorching heat of the sun for a total of almost one kilometer to and from the nearest gasoline station.

It was later explained to us by the marketing manager that they are in the process of rebranding the cake shop to “Honeybon.”  He apologized and asked his staff to tell the guard that Honeybon and Honeybee are one and the same. We later learned that another blogger aboard a taxi also asked the guard and was also pointed to another location. #Confucius si Kuya #kaloka

Moving on, Honeybee or Honeybon is actually a sister company of Tokyo Bubble Tea.  We Iearned from the marketing manager that the owners are actually a husband and wife team. The husband manages the tea house and the wife handles the cake shop.  That is why you’ll find cakes at every Tokyo Bubble Tea branches with the exception of provincial branches.

When we arrived, a particular portion at the second floor of the establishment was covered with pink curtains. Hmmmmm….

We waited for more than an hour for the other bloggers to arrive. Then the program started and the secret behind the curtain was finally revealed.

It was none other than the Sakura Mango Cake!

It looks so dainty! This unique Japanese style cake was lovingly developed by Aileen Tan, owner of Honeybon Patisserie & cafe. It reminds me of the sakura season in Japan.

The 2-floor restaurant houses the two brands. Tokyo Bubble Tea and Honeybon are basically Japanese food chains. The former are known for serving Japanese fusion food and sensational milk teas and the latter serving pastries. There are Honeybon stalls inside every branch of Tokyo Bubble Tea and it’s only in Katipunan Ave. that they almost equally share the space. That is because Honeybon Katipunan is the flagship branch of the Japanese designer cake shop.

The staff are really polite and the shop itself has a nice spacious feel. I have had afternoon tea and cake at some of the best establishments in the Metro but this establishment makes me feel so comfortable and welcome.
