Mr Bean – It’s All Soy!!!

Mr Bean - icy mocha soy drink  (1)
Move over coffee, milk tea, fruit drinks there’s a new drink in town Manila and it’s all soy!

A friend of mine brought in popular Singaporean franchise, Mr Bean that specialized in all things soy. From soy milk, taho, frozen drinks, ice cream and even pancakes.

They had classic hot or cold soy milk for the purist. To be honest I have a love-hate affair with soy. I can’t stand regular soy milk but I do love Silk chocolate soy milk. I don’t like soft tofu but I love fried tofu and beancurd skin. I do love taho.

I was happy to see a wide variety of soy products that I wanted to try and hopefully overcome my distaste of soy milk.

Just like in most milk tea stores you can specify your drink’s level of sweetness. I chose 75% for all the drinks I bought.

Although I went to Mr Bean by myself I bought 2 drinks and 2 pancakes that I was going to share with my employees. I was told that I qualified for a free icy mocha soy milk. Yahoo!!

They also had wasabi soy beans for sale. That’s a healthy snack that I will try next time.

Their pancakes are actually just like a popular Japanese dessert called Imagawayaki.

They made my kaya pancake to order.

I ordered all frozen drinks – chocolate, watermelon and my free icy mocha. The watermelon tasted really good and refreshing just like a regular fruit shake but with protein from soy. There was only a slight soy taste that disappeared after a few sips. You get the nutrition from fruit and soy all in one drink.

I thought I would like the chocolate best but it turned out to have the strongest soy taste so after a sip I stopped. My favorite was the icy mocha with the least soy after taste and I just loved the strong coffee kick. After a while I stopped thinking about the soy and thoroughly enjoyed my drink/dessert.

Mr Bean - watermelon fruity soy & cheese pancake

At first bite I was taken aback by a different flavor. I later learned that the pancake was made from soy flour. When my tongue hit the cream cheese filling I began to enjoy the yummy and quite satisfying pancake. A small glass of icy mocha and a cheese pancake was my lunch and it kept me full for quite a long time.

I didn’t like the kaya filling as much. I found it too sweet and not enough coconut flavor. Others love it though. It’s their most popular pancake.  I can’t wait to try their peanut butter and chocolate fillings next time.

For all those who love frozen sweet drinks give Mr Bean a try. You will get a nutritious high protein drink while enjoying yourself. I heard their lychee pop add on is delicious and I will try that on my next visit.
