As I've mentioned countless times before, my mom and I usually get our groceries from the SM near our home. This was the case during last Saturday, too. We went to SM at around lunch time, so we had lunch first.

My mom is a big fan of Bonchon, so of course, we had our lunch there again. 128514 I was surprised when she told me she'll get the Crispy Fish Rice Box (Php 155), since she usually gets the Drumstick and Thigh Rice Box. To match her, I also decided to get something else other than my usual Crispy Shrimp Rice Box. 128513

Presenting...

✔ CRISPY MANDU MEAL (Php 155) - 11088110881108811088
This relatively new menu item from Bonchon has always been calling my attention since it was launched, but I only got to try it last Saturday. For Php 155, you get 4 pcs Crispy Mandu (Original or Spicy) on a bowl of steamed rice, a side order of soup (Bulgogi or Jjampong), and a drink of your choice.
I got Original-flavored Mandu, and chose Jjampong for my soup. The Mandu is filled with an ample amount of ground chicken, enclosed in a crispy, soy-garlic glazed shell. The chicken filling was not dry at all, and tastes really good too! For me, it tastes good with or without the sweet-salty sauce that comes with each mandu order. 128523 The Jjampong served to me was not that hot though, but it was definitely spicy! 128293 The noodles were a little undercooked. It was just so-so for me. Their Iced Tea was good, as usual.

Would I come back for their Crispy Mandu? YES, DEFINITELY! 128076 But, I think it would be better to get just the Mandu with Rice (Php 75), since the soup was not that good anyway. It would help you save more than half the price vs. the meal! 128513

One of the smallest Bonchon branches I know.
They are located on the third floor beside the cinemas which is unusual since most restaurants and fast food chains are located on the lower ground floor of this mall. Despite the location, dinudumog parin sila.

I just ordered 1 Krazy Ko Dog Cheesy Potato and Bulgogi Noodle Soup for takeout, inabot ako ng siyam siyam sa kakahintay. It took them around 30 min. and I had to follow up twice pa. The store is jam-packed which is understandable kaya mabagal yung service but 30 min. Waiting time for a take-out is OA.

Di nila kaya yung dami ng tao. HANGRY na talaga ako at this point and when I ate my bulgogi soup, ang lamig na. Hay. Anyway, this would probably be the last time I'm going to eat at this branch. Parating slow service and nagpapanic ang staff sa dami ng tao.

My mom and I frequently eat at this branch of BonChon, since it's our go-to restaurant whenever she does not want to cook, or we just want a decent meal before we go to the supermarket. Our usual orders comprise of the Crispy Shrimp Ricebox for me, and the Drumstick and Thigh Ricebox for my mom, both with iced teas, and an additional order of Large fries on the side for mom.

Today is our grocery day, since I'll be going back to work pretty soon, and we have to stock up on some supplies. (My mom hates to go anywhere alone. HAHA) Anyway, today, we swapped orders, and I chose to get just 1 piece of chicken instead of her usual two. We also chose to not order fries so we can try their BINGSU!

LOL sorry for the long introduction, buuuut... I have finally tried out the Matcha Vanilla Bingsu (Php 79 as an add-on to the meal, Php 89 for a la carte orders) from BonChon!

The verdict? 11088110881108811088 for this dessert item!

The matcha taste is very evident (which I like) as they used a generous amount of matcha powder for the flavoring. There are also red beans (which I usually don't like), that matched perfectly with the matcha flavor, and added a different texture to the bingsu. Speaking of texture, there were also clusters of white chocolate coated corn flakes, which was a nice and welcome addition to this wonderfully crafted dessert. 128154 They topped it with their house soft-serve, which is not too sweet, and has an ample vanilla taste to it that coats your tongue perfectly. It was also very creamy, and matched well with the rest of the toppings. A sprinkle of roasted rice powder then crowns this beauty. The supposed "star of the show", the snow ice, disappointed a bit though. I am not very well-versed with bingsus, but I found the snow ice to be less creamy both in taste and texture compared to how I'd like it. If you eat it on its own, the milk taste is very faint and the is little sweetness to it.

If you don't want to mix it altogether (I don't like this either since it won't be pretty anymore), make sure to eat it digging down, instead of eating everything on top first, or else you will be left with a pile of milk ice that lacks in taste. Tip: If you're already quite full, you may opt to share the bingsu with a companion, as the serving is pretty big.

For non-matcha lovers, don't fret! You may try out their Strawberry Cheesecake flavor, which also happens to be their best seller! 10084 My mom tried this, and she loved it! There were mini cheesecake cubes, as well as strawberry jam for its toppings. My mom had one complaint though, she said, "Why weren't there strawberry slices?" 128541 But moooom, lugi na sila if they do that! I think she forgot that this costs less than 100 pesos. 128513

They also have the Chocolate Brownie flavor for the kids and kids-at-heart.

Overall, it's an affordable dessert that you should try this summer; after all, binsgus were made to beat the heat!

Using frosted glass door to a comfort room is very radical for me! I am also very particular with the cleanliness and sanitation of a restaurant which is reflected in the CR

Ordered the usual, Mix and match Soy Garlic and for my boyfriend, Spicy. We always automatically upsize our drinks and buy fries ( at any store) , i really don't know why =)), we also tried their new product, The crispy crepe.

I was never a fan of cinnamon... So this flavor was for my bf to indulge < he's a fan>. I was curious about the peach-mango if it taste like the one in Jollibee, because it is one of my comfort foods, it wasn't the same but it is good. It is too sweet though. But price is reasonably fine. :) Will definitely go back here! :)
