Koomi The Podium Mall – #GuiltlessGoodness Yogurt Drink From The Land Down Under

-

G’day mate, are you in for some #GuiltlessGoodness from The Land Down Under? Here comes KOOMI, a new drink shop in Manila offering us Natural Drinking Yogurt and a different drinking experience!

Koomi

With the proliferation of our fave milktea, it is refreshing to hear that there are new players in the market, offering us an alternative drink, well, a healthy drink (period!), that promises Guiltless Goodness experience. So, when I was invited by Aileen L. to go to their new location at the 5F of The Podium Mall at Mandaluyong City, I did not hesitate to have a taste of this new drink that could seemingly infiltrate my milktea-infused personality.

Check out my F.A.B. review!

(F)OOD:

Koomi serves natural drinking yogurt with interesting flavors. While most of us know that yogurt is healthy as it promotes good digestion, do you know that it also regulates our mood and improves our mental capacity? Aside from that, Koomi uses natural fruit honey as sweetener which makes it healthier than processed sugar and sweeteners.

Knowing these information made me crave for this new drink more than ever, but with Koomi serving 13 amazing flavors and 15 add-ons, how do you choose?!

Koomi

FIRST:

Select your flavor from their 13 flavors in the menu

I was only able to taste the Stick-On-Me Purple Rice, Why Not? Coconut, and their Boppin’ Boba.

Koomi

STICK-ON-ME PURPLE RICE

This is Koomi’s Signature drink of Yogurt x Purple Rice.

Koomi

It was my first time to try purple rice, or rice for that matter, as a sinker and what can I say? I find it weird but it totally worked!

Koomi

The rice added texture to the drink and it was chewy when l drank it. It was like having Mango Sticky rice as a drink. It was a delightful dessert drink that is filling in the tummy. I don’t know why but I am currently craving for this drink as of this moment! The purple rice sinker was incredibly satisfying and I fell in love with it as I finish all of my drink.

WHY NOT, COCONUT?

Yogurt × Activated Charcoal x Coconut

Koomi

I love grated coconut or the taste of coconut in my dishes, except for gata I dunno why so I was excited for this drink. The coconut flavor is not that strong but because it was so pretty in picture and had coconut, I wanted to try it. You can taste the yogurt more but I guess if you added some purple rice, it would be a totally different story.

Koomi

BOPPIN’ BOBA

Yogurt x Boba Pearl

Who would’ve thought that this flavor will work?!? Love the contrast of flavors of the tangy yogurt with the sweet boba pearl.

Koomi

SECOND STEP:

Select if you want the Aussie Blend or the Filipino Blend.

● Aussie Blend – the yogurt taste is more prominent in the drink. Aussies must’ve like their drinks tangy, giving it a lighter feel but heavy on the yogurt taste.

● Filipino Blend – yeah, you know we like it sweet so this blend has added cream in it. This sort of makes the concoction a little heavier on the feel but lighter on the yogurt taste.

Koomi

THIRD STEP:

Choose your level of sweetness.

Koomi uses natural fruit honey so you may indulge in it without the guilt with their Recommended Sweetness or if you are not on the sweet side, choose the Less Sweetness level.

FOURTH STEP:

Choose your add-ons.

Though the 13 flavors already have their default add-ons, it is not bad to be adventurous sometimes especially with my recommended Purple Rice.

Koomi

Overall, I liked the flavors but more importantly, I think the concept of having a healthy drink aside from the usual milk tea is what makes this drink appealing to me. They also have new flavors that the curious and adventurous drinkers would certainly like to try. They have jujube (alam mo ba yun?), dates, watermelon , oats, papaya, dragon fruit, pistachio, almond, red bean and other flavors. I am totally excited of their future flavors if they will expand their current line up.

The purple rice (which is actually black rice) sinker is super chewy! Sarap! You know rice in general, doesn’t really have a strong taste, but the purple rice contains more antioxidant compounds than white or brown rice. There is evidence that antioxidants can promote heart health and lower the risk of some cancers. These compounds help eliminate harmful free radicals. If that still doesn’t convince you, I am not sure what will.

(A)MBIENCE:

The place was simple but have nooks where you can place your drinks for a ‘drinkfie’ and let your drink pose by itself!

Koomi

Of course, there are also small nooks for your selfie because they have cool neon signs and wall cutouts

Koomi

If you love pastel colors, especially pink and violet, you would love this place 💜💕

Koomi

Their mascot, “Koomi”, is just adorable, find him in the shop and have a selfie with him!
