Dakasi: Buy One Get One Free at Trinoma

If you've been a regular reader, you'd know my undying love for tea and its trendier sibling, the ever-famous and sought-after milk tea. Although I've already had my fair share of this refreshing beverage, my hunt for the best milk tea shops in the Metro is still on. And recently, it led me to a new milk tea kiosk in Trinoma by the name of Dakasi.
Dakasi Trinoma Buy 1 Get 1 Free

If you're thinking that this is another homegrown milk tea venture, then you're wrong. Apparently, Dakasi originated from Taiwan and has gained popularity all over Asia. And as it opens its new branch in Trinoma's third level, just in front of Marks & Spencer, this milk tea shop is offering a Buy 1 Get 1 Free promo from September 22 until October 5.

Dakasi Trinoma

Seeing this very tempting promo, my friend Bern and I decided to check out the offerings at Dakasi. And thankfully, we were fortunate enough to have timed our visit during a non-peak hour so we didn't have to wait long for our orders, plus we got ourselves a table!

Matcha Brown Rice Milk Tea Large P100 Yakult Green Tea Large P110

I decided to order a large Matcha Brown Rice Milk Tea (P100) while my friend got a large Yakult Green Tea (P110). And since there was a buy one take one promo, we only had to pay for the higher-priced beverage. It's like we only paid fifty-five bucks for each of our drinks. And as for the taste, I am definitely in love with what I ordered. The matcha milk tea was very creamy without being overly sweet. It also had some brown rice bits which added an interesting flavor and texture. My friend was pretty happy with her order too. I got to take a sip off her drink and it was definitely very refreshing. The yakult wasn't too overbearing and tart, and it blended very harmoniously with the freshly-brewed tea.

Aside from being happy with our orders and the promo price, I'm also impressed with the selection at Dakasi. They have different kinds of teas, milk teas, and even smoothies. And unlike other milk tea shops, this store offers a lot of hot concoctions as well.

THE VERDICT

Although I already have a list of my favorite milk tea shops, Dakasi definitely surpassed my expectations, and might make its way to the roster. If I have to be completely honest, we only checked this store out since it has an ongoing buy one get one promo. However, I didn't actually think their tea concoctions would be so good! And since it's just in Trinoma, my current go-to mall, Dakasi can definitely expect more visits and purchases from me, with or without a promo.

Taste - 4.5/5
Ambiance - 4/5
Service - 4/5
Promo Price - 5/5
Original Price - 4/5
Overall Value - 4/5

  12. We were on our way out the Marquee Mall in Angeles City, Pampanga when I spotted a kiosk that sells milk tea from Taiwan. As it was new, the name didn't actually register. What struck me was the Yakult-flavored milk tea. Hmmm, maybe this is another Dakasi branch? I'll go double check when I find my way there again. :)

  16. This is good to know since our go-to milk tea place has always been just Gong Cha and Happy Lemon. At least this time, we'll have another alternative when we frequent Trinoma. By the way, congrats Sumi for being one of the 10 Top EIB's! :) So proud of you. :)

    Stores nowadays have their own means of giving
    out something free for consuming public to enjoy such as these refreshing milk teas.

    I thought Dakasi is just one of those milk tea stores mushrooming around the malls but since you have a good review on this, we might as well try this soon.
