Milk Tea and Snacks from Taiwan Available at Lucky Tea!
Banawe is considered to be a special street in Quezon City because it is clustered with auto shops and restaurants. What you might not know is that there is actually a really cool place called Lucky Tea located along Banawe Streeet corner Scout Alcaraz Street. It’s very accessible and has ample parking space for their customers. Once you enter the place, you will instantly feel a very cozy atmosphere and feel like you’re just hanging out at home – only better!
What makes Lucky Tea special is that they have around 70 milk tea variations for you to try. That’s about one new flavor to try every day for more than two months – enough reason for you to keep coming back. They also have very fulfilling snacks to pair with their wonderful assortment of milk tea. While you can choose from their regular menu of snacks, they have also shelled out new dishes and drinks by popular demand this year.
During our visit, the wonderful people of Lucky Tea served us with their all-time bestsellers, including the new dishes and drinks. We instantly understood why those dishes were bestsellers as soon as we had a taste of them. They are prepared to perfection and yet do not leave any greasy aftertaste. It’s great for those who are conscious with their diet.
Lobster Ball is a delightfully deep-fried seafood. It has a sweet and light taste that’s almost similar to shrimp, but milder.
Mushroom Meat Balls has a distinct mix of mushrooms. In Chinese cuisine, mushrooms (particularly Black Mushrooms aka Shiitake Mushrooms), have a detoxifying effect, can fight high cholesterol and have an overall tonic effect. That’s eating healthy and enjoying at the same time.
Chicken Chops is made of crunchy crust with a soft chicken meat inside. It has a very mild flavor.
Fish Fillet has a very crispy crust, soft fillet, and is generously garnished with aromatic rosemary. This is one of my favorite bestsellers! I highly recommend that you try this one.
Who doesn’t love the mild and sweet taste of Crab Meat? Sweet, aromatic, flavorful seafood.
Tea Egg, not to be mistaken for Century Egg, is a Taiwanese dish. I would say it tastes similar to those hard-boiled eggs with adobo flavor.
