About a month and a half ago (during Labor Day), me and my family went to Robinsons Place Manila to have lunch. After eating, my mom wanted to have dessert elsewhere, and we decided to grab the sweet ending to our meal at Bill's Bear Café.

It's already my second time here, and during the first visit, I found their bingsu to be quite delicious, so I suggested that we share a regular sized bingsu. My sister, on the other hand, wanted milk tea. Here's what we got:

✔ KING MANGO (Php 240 - Regular) - 11088110881108811088
My mom and I shared this. Their regular sized bingsus are good for 2-3 people, so this is more than enough for the two of us. It was good that we had this during summer, because the mango toppings were very sweet. I have to say this again, I LOVE the mango sorbet topping! 128076 The shaved ice was fine, not too sweet, and had just the right milkiness. Overall, great value for money, but I wish there were almonds or anything to add more texture to this dessert.

✔ BILL'S BEAR MILK TEA (Php 100 - Small) - 1108811088110881108811088
My sister got this. Their small sized drink was not that small after all, as it was already enough for my sister. She liked her milk tea since it was not as sweet as the ones the others are offering. It was also quite creamy, and the pearls were firm yet chewy, perfect sinker! 128522 Overall she loved having this drink! 128077

Overall, the ambiance was ok, less warm compared to my previous visit. I still dislike having this just as a kiosk, though. We also had a hard time calling the attention of the waiters, as the store is oddly shaped. Nonetheless, we still enjoyed having our dessert here! 128156

Wait staff said the name Bill is a fictitious one and this is a franchise from Taiwan. I had to ask because Bill Bear is not exactly common.

The only Taiwan identity they have though are the Snow Ice variety. We got Strawberry and the Black Forest variety. The ice wasn’t as fine that of Bingsu. The milk not as sweet nor creamy. The Strawberry was ordinary while Black Forest offers more with a variety of toppings to it.

So Bill Bear Cafe has Italian, American and Japanese mostly.

Barbecue Chicken Pizza was way salty. The upside though was the barbecue taste was really felt. Meat were quite big slices making it look unworthy. The crust were well made.

Diced Beef Tepan at Php 389 maybe was overpriced. I did enjoy the tender feel of the meat and its flavor. The accompanying Mushroom Sauce could use a more appetizing look.

Others relatively enjoyed their pasta dishes. A friend got two cups of coffee and says they serve it really well.

I had dinner with M and C last time at Nihonbashi Tei in Malate, and went back to Robinson's Place Manila for our dessert. We stumbled upon this small and cute cafe kiosk in 4th floor, a relatively new addition to RP's dessert options. Since we're curious about it, we decided to try it out.

Bill's Bear Cafe might be small, but its menu surprisingly had a lot of variety. They serve teppanyaki, pasta, pizza, waffles, and snow ice / bingsu.

Since we just want to get rid of the umami aftertaste from our meal, we decided to try out their bingsu as this dessert is quite new compared to its siblings like ice cream or cake. The staff mentioned that the Regular sized bingsu is already good for 2-3 people, so we decided on just one flavor, to share. We got the FRUITY PARTY (Php 235 for regular size). They also have solo bingsus if you just want to try this out. The serving is really BIG. Our chosen flavor had sliced fresh mangoes, kiwi, and strawberries, laid on top of a bed of milk snow ice and topped with mango sorbet. The different colors looked so pretty! Some of the fruits were frozen, and were a bit hard to eat. The milk snow ice was creamy and was not too sweet, perfect for my liking. The mango sorbet, on the other hand, was heavenly!!! 128525 It tasted so much like Cebu dried mangoes in ice cream form. I loved it!

Overall, the taste and serving size of the bingsu are both worth its price. Perhaps, they can open the store in a cozier place with better ambiance, so people can fully enjoy their food. The location's temperature is quite erratic, and it may be an issue for some diners. I am also not a fan of restaurants as kiosks, since it's weird when everyone passing by looks at what you're eating. 128517128584 I might go back next time to try their pasta dishes. 128522

We were scouting for a place to have a light snack and we came across Bill Bear Cafe at the 4th floor of Rob Midtown. Their shaved ice and other drinks caught my eye and I was pleased to know they had some food too. I ordered the mango ice (good thing I didn't ask for the bigger size cause it was HUGE) and shared an all meat pizza with friends. They each ordered boba drinks and a shake I think. This is worth a try!

Bill's Bear serves rice meals, pasta and desserts like cakes and waffles, but since my friend and I were kind of already full at the time we visited, we just decided to split an order of their bingsu/snow ice creations.

We had the mango variant, which comes in a solo (130 php) and regular (225 php) serving. It was served after a bit of a wait. The sliced mangoes were nice and sweet, ice was finely shaved and it came with a scoop of mango sorbet on the top. It wasn't the best bingsu I've ever had but it was still good and we still enjoyed it haha.

fellows' lunch out... after that weekend rounds!
bill's bear cafe is quite inviting and there's nice view since it's located way up, because rob place had a gallery/exhibit that day, so we watched the people at the ground floor take selfies and stuff while waiting for our food.
we had 127837 spaghetti alla pescatora, i like that spicy 🌶 kick which goes well with the shrimp and squid 128077🏻 also we tried the penne putanesca (hmm, just okay.. i like the pescatora better, i end up with this coz the lasagna and pesto pasta isn't available..aaaw). for that sweet toothed me, we tried 128059 bill's bear milk tea which was just good, just like any other milk tea out there and this black forest snow ice!!! that snow ice is a must try! not that sweet, the chocolatey ice goes well with the wafer and brownies! 128076🏻
