With a new month already in full swing, school has already started for some or knee-deep in their workload, while some are still relishing their last few weeks of vacation or enjoying a much needed break away from the city. Whichever stage you’re at this week, know that food will always have your back to cheer you on. Here are some noteworthy grub news you might have missed this week.

1. Tiger Sugar is set to make their Megamall mark

The brown sugar boba craze is not about to slow down and it looks like Tiger Sugar is leading the pack. We can’t believe it’s just been over 7 months since the Taiwan-based milktea shop opened its first PH store in BGC, and now they’re looking to celebrate their 7th branch at SM Megamall today! No need to drive all the way to other cities if you live within the Pasig or Ortigas area!

2. Ramen Nagi is bringing back a favorite

Great news, ramen fans! The Black Garlic King is making its timely return to the Ramen Nagi menu, but for a limited time only (last day is on June 15). We remember bawling our eyes out when it bid its farewell, and we never thought this day was coming. Can you already imagine the rich tonkotsu broth alongside thick strips of pork with a hefty dash of garlic for that umami taste?

3. Starbucks adds a new limited edition summer drink to their line-up

During the summer season, we can only think of a few fruits that best encapsulate its easy breezy vibe. Starbucks seems to know this full well, which is pretty much why they’re blessing us with a new limited edition drink in the form of their Watermelon and Lychee Aloe Frappuccino complete with chia seeds – indeed three refreshing flavors all rolled into one drink. You can also opt to try another cool-for-the-summer frap which they also added to their line-up – the Ultra Caramel Coffee Sphere Frappuccino. Don’t miss out!
