Happy Lemon is da bomb! It's just kind of pricey... P95 for a regular sized Milo Dinosaur. I can make that at home for so much cheaper huehue!

Anyway, I get to super make it sulit now! I just recently found out they have levels of ice and sweetness.. I didn't know I was getting 100% of both all this time.. The latest one I had tho, I only got 25% ice!!! Yay for more Milo than ice! Hahaha

Whenever I get the chance to visit Shangri-La Plaza along Shaw Boulevard, I feel at ease because this mall is very peaceful and quiet with not much mall goers.

You can actually move around freely and just chill while walking slowly, not worrying if you'll bother other people because the place is not jam-packed.

I specifically like the mall's look at off hours, especially at the restaurants and food establishment areas because you rarely get to see a mall like that.

So, I went here last week when I was looking for some items that I need for my events and then I got to pass by Happy Lemon which was located at the 5th floor of the mall, near the movie house area.

Then, I remembered that I still have some gift certificates from last year so I was happy because I'll be able to use them already!

This branch of Happy Lemon is quite small. With its small counter and a few tables and chairs to accommodate a little number of customers, it's more of a to go set-up.

I ordered the Roasted Milk Tea with Black Sago for myself and took out another order of Milo Dinosaur that I'll bring home as pasalubong for Mama.

Milk teas have always been refreshing for me and I really love Happy Lemon's roasted version with the black pearls. It's not too sweet for me and I appreciate it when served extra cold.

The Milo Dinosaur is such a nice drink that kids will certainly appreciate. Your classic cold Milo drink made even better when it has Milo powder on top. What a treat, right?

I just hope that they'll enhance the lighting of this branch because it's a bit dark given that it's close to the cinemas.

Forgot to take a photo coz I was late for the movie already!

I asked if they have wintermelon coz I didn't have time to look at the menu. And they answered "wala" in a not so customer friendly tone. Mmmmkay. So I just quickly scanned the menu and was happy they have matcha-based drinks. I ordered Matcha with red beans and pudding. Didn't ask me about sugar level or how much ice. As if they wanted to get it over with already. I dunno, I just didn't feel any friendliness from the crew.

The drink is good! Not too sweet, just the way I like it. The red beans were kinda bitin. The ice were super dami! I realized that after drinking for just a few minutes inside the dark cinema. Since madilim nga, I didn't realize agad na ubos na pala yung drink ko and that puro ice na lang pala. Next time, I'll tell them less ice (and more tea please!).

I like their drinks, but the service kinda sucks.

Decided to get milk tea for our movie since I wasn't in the mood for the free lemonade/iced tea/coke that goes with our stub. And they don't give out bottled water in place of those mentioned drinks.

Anyway, I ordered a Roasted Milk Tea with pearls, while RK B got a Milo Dinosaur Milk Tea.

The kuya behind the counter was a bit snooty though. We were trying to be friendly, like how you chat with Starbucks baristas, but he was unresponsive. 128530

He also got RK B's order wrong and she had it changed but he didn't even say anything about it and just changed it. No smiles, no anything. 128533

Anyway, the drink was okay, but the pearls were lamog. 128557 would have wanted to get green tea with cheese but it was too messy to drink in a dark environment 128514

First time in Happy Lemon and had their Oreo milk tea with pearl. I like the pearls because they're chewy and their cookies comes in bigger chunks than usual (others really crash their Oreos that when you take a sip, you can feel them getting formed in your mouth) but it's not as sweet. I don't know. Maybe I just had a bad night that affected my taste buds lol. But I would want to come back to try their other best sellers but not in this branch. the area is too small and limited. 128528

BUY 1 GET 1 on their mango smoothie and passion fruit green tea from M-F for the month of May! Thanks Joy Vee A for writing about it!

Got the passion fruit for 90 pesos. Such a steal. They don't have a sign for it so just ask for it. Baka secret sale?

Had to make a quick stop at Shang yesterday and this branch was on the same floor as to where I was supposed to go to.

I was their first customer. I was there by 11:15. Sadly, mejo masungit ang 2 staff nila. I felt cashier guy was close to saying wala promo. Because when I asked about it he took time to answer and said, "May promo pa ba?" To his companion. He didnt even ask me how much ice I wanted. I saw him punch 100% ice and nagulat ako dami pala ice nun haha. I havent ordered from HL in a long time. I forgot I found their ice cubes too big. Coffee Bean has the best ice cubes, if you're weird and notice thinks like that. I was done with my drink by the time I was by the elevator. (Note to self: wait for it to melt a little) The other guy didn't look happy either. After he gave me my drink I asked for a bag and i felt he reluctantly gave one to me.

Baka they believe in the superstition that the first sale can dictate the sale for the day? Ayaw nila mag smile! Well I'm definitely coming back, susulitin ko ang sale so take that! Im not looking for mala Starbucks na conversation but they are called HAPPY Lemon for something. Here, have a few smileys to cheer you up -

Great variety of drinks. Rocksalt and cheese is famous for a reason but for a change, if you liked starbucks green tea latte, you would definitely love Happy Lemon's Green matcha latte with oreo cookies and cream!

Straight from graveyard shift, me and a couple of friends decided to watch Mr. Peabody and Sherman at Shangrila Mall Edsa.

In need of more caffeine, I picked the last coffee option on the menu at the Happy Lemon store near the cinemas. Grapefruit Black Coffee.

This Grapefruit Black Coffee reminds me of the Denis Leary (American actor and comedian) sketch where he’s ranting about coffee. To quote – “So let me ask you this: is it impossible to get a cup of coffee-flavored coffee anymore”. Denis only had a problem with the hazelnut syrup. I’m having a problem with the grapefruit.

The grapefruit is edging on sickly-sweet and much like the Blood Orange flavoured coffee I had before. It's like drinking juice and coffee at the same time. And I'm really not a fan of grapefruit to begin with. Plus, you can only get it cold. The saving grace is... Well, there's none!

I did make it through the entire cup just to stay awake and finish the movie, but The aftertaste was also an issue.

Tired and disappointed lemon!

“Coffee doesn’t need a menu, it needs a cup! That’s all it needs! Maybe a saucer underneath the cup- that’s it!”. I love Denis Leary ^__^

An awful drink is equal to an awful photo of it... LOL I kid!

I've been having weird cravings for Milo Dinosaur during the past week. I got to try out the new Milo Dinosaur in Tori Box which is really good since it's iced unlike Toast Box's liquid Milo with powdered Milo to top it off.

Since my mom and I were a little late for the 7pm screening of 12 Years A Slave last night, I wasn't able to buy my drink before the movie so I got it right after. There were no more pearls so I got it with pudding instead. Maaan I shouldn't have ordered this! I've seen cartons of Harvey Fresh milk in the Happy Lemon branch in Eastwood before so I know for a fact that they use this for their milk and mine just tasted like it! The worst part is, they didn't even think of stirring the Milo with the milk. I was just literally milk + powdered Milo on top grrr!!! I should have gotten Jamba Juice instead, healthier pa! 128530

This visit deserves just a star cause it's cheaper to buy a whole carton of milk than the drink itself but it wasn't spoiled, so it ain't that THAT bad, I guess.

While waiting for the next Cine Europa film, I had some Happy Lemon since it's part of the CineBar so I can bring it inside the movie house. I think the last time I had Happy Lemon was over a year ago.

Since I'm on a no milk tea phase 'til my birthday (which is in two months), I ordered their Cocoa with Oreo Cookies and Cream with extra rock salt and cheese. It honestly tasted like the Cowhead chocolate milk (saw their Eastwood stall loaded with Cowhead or was it Harvey Fresh?!). I'd like to think that it isn't cause I can just make my own then at home and add crushed oreos. It was still good though. 128541

-1 star cause my extra rock salt and cheese was sooo little! Saw the guy putting it on top of my drink and they didn't fill the entire top area! And they put a cover on top too! They should know that they aren't supposed to do that when there's rock salt and cheese on top! When I opened the cover, nabawasan pa tuloy cause it got stuck on top. Grr.

Cocoa in Rock Salt and Cheese with Pudding! 128525

I loved sipping the top of my drink then will get an instant mustache! Not yet satisfied with my drink that why I asked for another Rock Salt and Cheese toppings after I sipped the first one. But this time, I mixed it with my drink.!

Arghhh! Feels like a kid again! 10084

Katrina D I tried the choco w/RSC! I don't think they print the right sweetness level tho. I know I asked for 25%. And it was just right.
But if it was 0%, I think it's ok. Haha
Although, I'd want to try it again with real 0% because it was still sweet. Just looking for that strong chocolate taste. Haha I feel like an old lady. "It's sweet young man for what teeth i have left." 128117128514
But you're right, actually tastes better than Green tea w/RSC! New fave. 128513
