Hungry for some grub (I realized I didn't have a decent lunch), my restless feet led me away from fastfood chains and into Chatime.

I wanted some Fries and spotted the Fish N Chips. They were served piping hot and I could not hold the fish that long. There was a wooden pick but the fish was too heavy. I munched on the fries while waiting for the fish to cool down. They were made from real potatoes with some of the skin still on and seasoned with salt. The thinly sliced fish tasted fresh. Some parts were real crunchy while some were soft but not soggy. I forgot to ask for catsup but the tartar sauce was more than enough for both the fish and the fries. This snack was well worth the P99 price tag and the 6-8 minute wait

I usually order the Chocolate Mousse but I was in the mood for something fruity so I got the White Grape Fruit Tea with less sugar. It was still sweet and it had the flowery after taste which I'm not too fond of.

I think I'll stick to my usual drink next time and maybe try the Chicken Chop or the Parmesan Flavored Belgian Fries.

Ordered Wintermelon Latte P105 plus pearls P15 after heavy late dinner at chowking. I love their pearls it waa soft and sweet.

All chatime branches have nice purple interiors. Too bad the charging stations at the couch area wasn't working so we just ended up using powerbank. We could have stayed longer tho.

Enjoyed our time here. Comfy seats. Good to share. 128154128156

They have 33 branches and am not sure if that will still grow as this part of the food industry is somehow just above surviving. People don't rave it as much as they do during its craze. 

I used to get their Red Bean Smoothie a lot. Its only Php 55. Now its gone and somehow replaced with a Matcha version for Php 85. Nevermind that. I like how simple it was before. And yes, with no sugar added. 

Since that wasn't there anymore, I opted for their best seller, The Pearl Milk Tea at 30% sugar. Barista was right. I love the presence of the tea. The milk was simply a compliment to the drink. 

I also had the Chicken Chops for Php 95. It was generous for its price. Seasoned well with salt and pepper. I just didn't like the skin separating from its meat. And it was somehow tough to eat. 

Their bundles though are somehow discouraging because they are locked in on a specific tea plus food combo. I found that irrational. And, they don't food prices displayed in the whole place.

Spacious and well-lit. Nice place to hangout, study or date ;) Honey Assam or Creme Brulee milk tea are the best! :)

Cheers for my former officemate's family franchised branch! A supportive friend here!128513

Me and my workmates most of the times drop by here whether for take out or dine here.10084

The place itself is inviting. It was light and vibrant. The cozy chairs was cool is it because its velvet and when I sit on it, felt like a princess.128081teehee. You could also stay here on an afternoon book reading or make reports on you laptop since they had power sources.

Anyway we always always loved their Chicken Chops! For the taste, the price was just right at P85 plus if you want to pair it with pilaf rice (P18). Their fries was also yum but it has a small serving for me. Then you will pair these with their Pudding Milk Tea or sometimes I chose Coffee smoothie.128523 Super Yum yum!!!

Chatime's Mojito drinks!! 10084100841008410084

I love their version of mojito hihi take note it was fruity mojito! No alcohol content! 128513
Comes in three flavors, grapefruit, lychee and mango mojito tea!

My fave is the lychee! This drink is refreshing and I love the presence/taste of mint leaves in every sip!

Give in! 128525128522

Hmm haven't been updating here much. So much reviews I wanted to share but don't have the time (tamad). Let me start with this drink.

Chatime Pearl Milk Tea

Medjo laos na ang milk tea craze and the weirdo and self-confessed introvert that I am, this is when I decide to get my butt out of the office, and finally try this shop after months and months of just passing it by.

I asked the lady cashier which one of the 10 best sellers is the yummiest. She suggested this.

All I can say about this drink is:
It tastes like chilled lipton tea mixed with coffee mate and sugar, plus the pearls from Zagu.

Nothing fantastic. Not worth P55. I should have just bought a lipton tea bag, use our free coffee mate and sugar in the office, not a fan of the pearls anyway so I can do without it. Pop it in the ref and drink it chilled.

Altho I still have some interest left for this place. Next I am eyeing on is their taro drink.
Hopefully it will be better.

My first and last love. Still, nothing matches the authenticity of Chatime's tea!

For P85, what could possibly go wrong?!?!? :) I could eat Chicken Chops every lunch time... No exaggeration! Its that good. Order their Annatto Rice at P18 to go with your chops, too (which unfortunately I didn't order coz am on a "diet").

I just love how the saltiness of the chicken chops and the sweetness of the milktea at Chatime goes well together. :) Salty + sweetness combined is what I really love.

Pearl milk tea, my first love.

But today I tried Strawberry milk tea. So yum! Sweetness is just right. And lots of strawberry bits! So refreshing!

Ever since my bad experience with their Pioneer branch, I'd always go for the safe orders (if you must), whichever milk tea place I go, whether Chatime or others. Wintermelon tea is safe enough. Good enough for me. Serenetea is still the best milk tea place for me.

This time I got the Strawberry Au Lait with pudding. Large, 70% sugar, no ice, for P100. 9786128077

It tastes like melted Selecta strawberry ice cream 'cept that it had a different consistency. Like that of yogurt. You know how yogurt is creamy but its creaminess is different from that of ice-cream? Yeah, that. 128516
The pudding tastes good too (see the yellow part at the bottom). 128070 I don't know if its flavored or not but it tastes like mango. 128523

Gave this branch a second chance. 128530

And I'm glad I did! 9786 I loved it!!! 128516

Because, finally, this time they had the Salt and Pepper Chicken Chops and Annatto Rice Pilaf I've been craving for! 128513128523127860127831127834

Their Salt and Pepper chicken was well seasoned, crispy on the outside, moist and soft inside. The Annatto rice was great! The chicken was already salty and peppery (you don't say??! 128518), so the slight herby quality of the pilaf paired up well with the chicken and didn't overpower its flavor.

The bamboo stick poked into the chicken kind of reminds me of Looloo's icon. 128070128516

Paired up my grub with my Chatime personal favorite, the Strawberry milktea. 50% sugar, no ice, with coconut jelly.
➡For those who don't want their drink too sweet I suggest you get this drink with 50% or less sugar especially of you get it with an add-on. The strawberry syrup makes the drink a tad too sweet if you get it with >=70% sugar (for my taste, and I'm sweet-toothed 128541).

This place isn't so bad during lunch time. Although many people came to have lunch here, it still didn't get crowded.

The aircondition was working better this time. 128077

Oh, and another note-worthy observation was that they had outlets for charging under the table. They post signs indicating where more outlets are located.
Last but not the least, ofcourse, free wifi! 128588128518

My first time to buy from this branch and I disliked the experience. 128542

The place was hot and humid, like they turned on the heater instead of the cooling system. -111088

We went there because we would've wanted to have their Pepper Chicken and pilaf for lunch. Sadly, the chicken wasn't available yet because their cook forgot to thaw out the meat. -111088

This branch is rather small compared to their branch in Pioneer Center, Kapitolyo. Plus, one of their servers was rude. 128533 -111088

My saving grace was that their Chocolate Mouse with pudding is so yummy and bf's White Grape Tea was pleasingly sweet and fruity. +111088 128522

Don't get me wrong, I still love Chatime's Milk teas and food. I'm just not happy with this visit.

It has been a while since I had milk tea and Chatime is one of the stores that I don't mind coming back to, but it wasn't the milk tea alone that made us return, it's that inviting picture of the chicken chop and anatto rice that can be seen from outside when you walk by. (Well for the Eton Emerald Loft branch)

So, how was it? Don't base your expectation on the picture BUT base it on the price! With that being said the only fall back was the size of the serving compared to your visual expectation. The taste and smell was great, makes you think you're in HK or SG when you take that first bite or walking by their store during dinner! It's a good snack! Rather than just your usual burger or pasta.

Try it out! :)

The Banana milk tea didn't quite work for me, it tasted like the common powder flavoring that you can buy in groceries.

Cheers!

For a quick bite and a generous serving of chicken with a bit of peppery taste with matching annatto pilaf rice cha time is a surprising spot to look out for... Tea-wise i wouldnt know i ordered the chocolate mousse their number 2 top seller but it was meh, it wasnt smooth enough i guess.. Although they were playing house/techno music not the usual jazzy music at starbux/cbtl so it was kinda new for me.. :)
