Man Drinks: Happy Lemon

I wasn't so happy, lemon.

Sorry to all the hardcore Happy Lemon fans, but I just don’t get it.

Yes, I am a coffee drinker first and foremost but I do enjoy the occasional mixed tea/bubble tea drink. In fact, I was a big fan of Serenita up until I found my new favorite, Tokyo Bubble Tea along Wilson St.

After hearing You HAVE to try Happy Lemon! so many times, I finally did last night right before watching Thor (awesome sauce!!!). That being my first time, I tried the house specialty…Green Tea with Rock Salt and Cheese.

Remember the last time you craved for some flowery, salty, milky/cheesy drink? I didn’t think so. There’s a reason for that.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that it was gross. It was interesting but it just didn’t work. At least not for me.

I don’t want to write-off Happy Lemon just yet, though. Maybe I should give it another shot one of these days.

Given that I order the Hokkaido Milk Tea in Serenitea and the Coffee Milk Tea in Tokyo Bubble Tea, what should I get next time?

Nothing with cheese, please. Thanks.

Man Drinks: Boddingtons Pub Ale

Yes, Man has to drink too.

So, what do you get when you mix ice cream and a bitter draught beer?

Probably Boddingtons Pub Ale.

When going to a bar or pub that offers foreign beers, Boddingtons usually is my poison of choice (the other one being Hoegaarden). Thanks to the aerator widget in every 1 pint can, the beer forms a really thick head when poured.

How thick? Check out these ads for Boddingtons.

I remember this one time when I went to London to attend Ross’ wedding and Joey and I enjoyed a couple of pints of Boddingtons…

Wait, I think that was a Friends episode.
