I recently went to Quezon City with my 'barkada' and we planned to visit two of the hottest cafes in Southern Luzon. The first one is the famous '2d' Cafe in Quezon City. We really wanted to see if it looks just like what we saw on social media.
Watch it here:
Kurimi Milk Tea Bar is located at #88 Sct. Limbaga, Sacred Heart, Q.C. It is opened now daily from 11:00 AM to 7:00 PM for dine-in, takeout, pick up, or delivery.
The place is based on Greem Cafe in South Korea which features a 2D theme, with its white interior outlined in black paint to mimic a cartoon.
Kurimi Milk Tea Bar strictly follows a "no mask, no entry" policy, and only two customers are allowed inside at a time. Since the place is small, we actually have to wait in line before they let us inside. Upon our entrance, we went through temperature checks and hand sanitization.
Kurimi Milk Tea Bar offers a wide variety of milk tea-based beverages that are freshly brewed in the morning to ensure the best quality. We asked one of the workers what is their bestseller and he said that it's the 'Kurimi Milk Tea Baby Special'.
Stepping inside, you will feel like you entered a giant coloring book. The whole place is like an artist sketchbook that you want to color in. Not only are the walls gave you the vibes of a coloring book but also chairs, tables, and even the bathroom are painted over to provide the ultimate 2D experience!
Kurimi Milk Tea Bar made sure they are following CoVid-19 protocols in the Philippines by making available chairs to be one seat apart and putting up acrylic divider on tables.
PLACE: It surely is a very Instagrammable place due to its 2d interior. One thing that bummed us it only allows 7-8 persons inside due to CoVid-19 protocols, so if you and your group of friends are more than 7-8 person, then you won't be able to have all of you inside the cafe. Even if you are 6 pax in a group, which we are, we have to wait for all the previous customers to leave before all of us are inside the cafe.
DRINKS: Their specialty is 'Kurimi Milk Tea Baby Special' is delicious. Their boba pearls are passable but not spectacular.
SERVICE: Our order arrived before we even finished taking pictures. When we went there, their AC is not quite running well and we keep complaining that it's hot inside. They quickly resolve it though. The staff is friendly, too!
SAFETY: 5 out of 5! They surely follow the government-set safety protocols.
All in all, it's a good place to get your Instagram shots and pictures but it's not yet a good place to recommend for friends to hang out. If you stayed for more than 15 minutes, there will be a long line outside waiting for their turn and you cannot shake off the guilty conscience of taking too long inside. We did have fun but will we come back soon? I don't think so. Since we already have our pictures taken in their cafe, we probably would just order their drinks online or for delivery (if we do crave it).
