Since it’s served in a tall and wide glass, you can actually share it with someone. This would be a good alternative if you tend to get bloated easily (though if you love milk tea, you can also finish it yourself)!

Don’t forget to pair it with some items from their menu, as well. Seawadeeka is special in La Union because they’re one of the few food joints that serve a mix of Indonesian, Thai, Malaysian, Singaporean, and Vietnamese cuisine.

Satay | P170-180

Their satay is a must-try. This Indonesian specialty is similar to our BBQ on a stick. It has three variants: pork, chicken, and chicken sambal. It’s served with a peanut sauce that goes extremely well with the well-seasoned meat.
