Sweet Hunt- Taiwan Milk Tea, Snow Ice, Honey Toast and More in Robinsons Place Manila

Last Sunday, D and I went to Robinson's Place Manila and found ourselves in front of this cute dessert place called Sweet Hunt. It is located at the 3rd level of Midtown Wing right in front of Toy's R Us. We seldom frequent the area, so it was just the right place to be since we didn't want to try something we could also find elsewhere. 

The store was pretty simple and neat with quirky decors and chairs. Sweet Hunt is basically a dessert place that aims to bring Taiwanese sweet treats here in the Philippines. 

Their products include Taiwan milk tea drinks and smoothies, Snow Ice, Shave Ice, Honey Toasts and Taiwan's famous Salt Pepper Chicken.

We decided to try their Snow Ice offerings and ended up choosing two of their bestsellers- Full House (P130-medium) and Tiramisu (P100-medium) 

The Full House is basically a sweet and refreshing cup of their finely shaved milky snow ice topped with mangoes, kiwi, mixed berries, condensed milk and vanilla ice cream

First, I must say that their fruits are really sweet! They really now how to hunt for the sweet ones :) I just hope that they'll be able to maintain the quality of their fruits. 

Next, the texture of their snow ice was really fine and melts in your mouth. It kinda reminds me of the Ice Monster craze way way back, but their texture was even better without any hint of some unrefined ice. 

The Tiramisu on the other hand is a simple and creamy cup of milky snow icecondensed milkcreme Chantillycoffee and cocoa powder

D and I both loved this cup! It may look so simple but the ingredients blended well together. We also enjoyed the touch of Chantilly cream that adds to a sweeter, creamier and more delightful treat. 

Mixed Fruit Tea (P100-medium, P110-large) 

Being more of a fruit tea lover than milk tea, I decided to try their Mixed Fruit Tea which is a blend of jasmine green tea and mixed fruit teas. It was cold, fruity, sweet and refreshing at the same time. 

Same as other milk tea places, Sweet Hunt could customize the sweetness of your drinks depending on your preference. 

The drink also had some fruit bits in it that reminds me of sangria without the alcohol. Sweet! :) 

The Sweet Hunters 

Sweet Hunt Menu:

Our eyes widened at the sight of Sweet Hunt's Honey Toast- a tower of toast cubes topped with ice cream and fruit toppings, but decided to pass since we still have a scheduled dinner for the night. But we promised to go back and try it out when we visit the area again. We also got the chance to meet the General Manager of Sweet Hunt Mr. Mike Chou, who is very hands on with the business. He was very friendly and accommodating to the point that we found ourselves asking him for suggestions on where to eat in Taiwan. Now, D and I are both excited and looking forward to our Taiwan trip this September!
