Bubba Lab is a milk tea store which offers a variety of milk and tea flavors named with “chemical” elements symbols. It currently has 3 branches in Metro Manila, Philippines. The store’s chemistry and science inspired theme is well shown and presented in most areas of the place. From the entrance of the store, to the pictures and laboratory tools inspired designs on the walls, decorative pieces around the store and menu, and up to the laboratory coats the employees wear, Bubba Lab makes sure their customers get their signature look to remember and share.

Last year, I first discovered this store when a friend of mine along with some schoolmates invited me to mainly study for the upcoming examinations at the time. Apparently, it’s a favorite place of theirs to meet-up, hang out, study, or work. The relatively fast and free Wi-fi connection, well air-conditioned room, available indoor and outdoor seats and tables, and the cool store theme are most likely some of the main factors which attract customers like students.

I went back there to visit the place again because I wanted to recall my thoughts about it and I like going to such places. I wanted to take photos of my order/s mainly to share in this blog because the over-all first impression I had of the place is something I am thrilled to share.

They offer to serve hot or iced coffee, different variants of milk tea, bubba juice, Shirota, Artisan tea, and frappe. Customers can choose between black or green tea and level of sugar ( 25%, 50%, 75% and 100%) for selected drinks.

They also serve snacks like their "Simply Crinkly Fries" in plain, cheese, sour n` cream or barbecue, nachos and Jojos. Customers can also choose which dip they prefer in certain snacks. My personal favorite dip is the Honey Mustard and I recommend it.

At the time I visited Bubba Lab again, they had a promo wherein customers can avail of their free Bubba Lab coloring book for adults after completing the bond card. Every time I purchased a large tea or milk tea, I got 1 sticker under “TEA” and every time I purchased Bubba Juice or frappe, I got 1 sticker under “COFFEE.JUICE.FRAPPE”. I was able to complete the bond card which gave me the opportunity to claim a free coloring book for adults.

Since rediscovering this milk tea shop around May, it had been my go-to place to do my school and blogging related tasks. The food and drinks are deliciously good and the prices are mostly relatively reasonable. Their customer service is great because the employees were often friendly which is also a great factor for customers to consider wanting to go back. The only drawback is the lack of running water for the toilet`s flush. However, they have running water in the sink with a tabo (small tub Filipinos commonly use for bathing) to use for “flushing” the toilet. Also, their comfort room has sliding windows at one side of the wall which kind of makes me feel awkward because that feeling as if someone is watching you inside the restroom kicks in whenever I use their restroom even though the windows were darkly tinted.

Bubba Lab is a really good milk tea place to meet with friends or do school and work related tasks. The “chemists” (employees) were approachable, cordial and welcoming. The menu contains a great range of milk, fruit or tea blended drinks and some snacks. My experience in this store had been very pleasant.

  6. Milk Tea! I love those! I can't believe they're still around. This seems like a really good place. Did you let the manager know your concerns about their toilet? They would probably fix the issue ASAP. It would be sad if that's one of the factors that's keeping their customers from coming.

  14. Milk tea houses are quite a fad these days and I think it is no surprise why. They are great thirst-quencher and truly a joy to drink. This place looks very impressive, I sure hope I can visit this one of these days.

  19. I'm a big bubble tea fan and a very big critic about milk tea. I heard Philippines is a big fan of sweet drinks, so I'm not sure if I will like it. I will definitely look forward to try out the products if I go to Philippines.
