There’s another milk tea place in Kapitolyo, Pasig and I decided to try it when Chatime was full of people.
Parking is very limited in this branch. Fortunately, I had a driver that time so I just told him to wait for me. There were no customer when I entered which I thought was a bad sign.
Cha Dao’s menu is very limited but their milk teas are very cheap. I asked the crew what the place’s milk tea specialty is. They said their best sellers are Assam and Wintermelon. I decided to try large Assam with Egg Pudding and Pearls which only cost me a total of P95, cheaper than other competitors.
While waiting, I took photos of the small store. I found it too “green” and it doesn’t look very comfy to hang out in.
Since I had really low expectations of Cha Dao, I was pleasantly surprised when I tasted what I ordered. Assam is very milky and suitably sweet but the winner is their egg pudding. I think it’s one of the best tasting out there.
Cha Dao is a good and cheaper alternative take out milk tea place. I wouldn’t hang out in the shop because I find their color scheme very suffocating. Another negative is their limited parking space but for pedestrians that won’t be a problem because Cha Dao is very accessible. It’s near the entrance of Kapitolyo and it’s easy to commute to and from the shop. So I recommend this if you are tired of the long line at Chatime Pioneer or if you have a limited budget.
I just found out that they deliver. I don’t know how much the minimum for delivery is though.
