After our tour to The Book Museum Cum Ethnology Center, we went to Bubba Lab for a quick fix of snacks. Not your usual coffee or milk tea shop, why? because they will let you remember your Chemistry days haha! Ooops!
An interesting place that makes me feel instantly that I’m inside a science laboratory. The interior has been kept simple to white, black and purple color. Almost every part of the shop compliments the idea of a lab from the lights, tables, beakers, cylinders, bottles and lab coats of their staff.
Let’s get scienTEAfic by ordering your drinks from the Periodic Table inspired menu. Honestly with too many options from Frost, Coffee, Frappe and Artisan Teas it will make you go crazy! I caught myself playing around by asking hubby what’s the chemical symbol of a certain drink. Yay!
ScienTEAsts or their baristas are all busy experimenting or I mean preparing our drinks haha. This scene reminds me one of our experiment before, when we mixed the baking soda and vinegar placed it inside a plastic bag, shaked it and poof! There goes the chemical reaction! Working at Bubba Lab looks really cool for me, as if they were just playing.
Hubby ordered the Scx (Salted Caramel Milk Tea Frost Php 95.00) while I got Gx (Green Tea Frost Php 90.00). Not all drinks were served in a beaker, better ask their scienTEAsts while choosing for your drink because it can add up (picture-worthy hehe) to your whole lab experience. I find Scx too sweet for my taste after mixing and testing it out but hubby said he loved it! I never regret that I ordered Gx, it’s refreshing and the bitterness of green tea frost is addicting! (Sorry but I’m a green tea fan haha!)
Syringe filled with an Es (Espresso shot Php 25.00) for your Mc (Caramel Machiatto Php 100.00) will definitely give you a boost to keep you going.
When Supernova (Php 225.00) arrived at our table, we screamed wow! An explosion of squid fritters, jojos (potato) and nachos served in a funnel with a stand. I bet you wouldn’t stop munching on their LABtizers plus you have the option to choose your LAB-made dips. Good for sharing up to 4 persons.
Served while it’s still hot, 100% potato and well covered with cheesy powder- Bubba Lab’s Cheesy Crinkly Fries also stand out for me. There’s a magic in their fries that will make you crave for more.
Ending our Marikina’s Books + Food Combo date with a sweet treat of Red Velvet Grid Cake with caramel syrup which was heavy on the tummy.
So if you want something new and fun?
