This Milk-Tea Café in QC Looks Like a Real-Life Drawing
Just like Greem Café in Seoul!
(SPOT.ph) Chances are, you've got Seoul's Greem Café on your bucket list. The café inspired by K-Drama series W: Two Worlds Apart is a hit among locals and tourists for its one-of-a-kind, two-dimensional look that appears almost as if it was lifted out of a sketchbook. While we won't be traveling abroad anytime soon, you can now get a similar experience without having to fly out of the country. Kurimi Milk Tea Bar features similar interiors you're likely to want to have on your Instagram feed!
Kurimi Milk Tea Bar's Tomas Morato outpost is their first stand-alone shop. It achieves the 2D illusion with all-white furniture painted with black lines along the corners and edges—you've really got to see it to believe it! The art was done by Ralph Pangilinan, and you'll find details like a drawn-on bookshelf, Mount Fuji, and even a cow peeking in from a window.
More than its distinctive appearance, Kurimi offers a wide variety of milk-tea drinks made with tea sourced from Taiwan that's brewed fresh every day. There's something for everyone here, with a lineup that ranges from signatures like the Kurimi Milk Tea (P90/regular, P100/large), to cheesecake drinks like the Cheesecake Milk Tea with Pearl (P135/regular, P145/large), to brown-sugar variants like the Brown Sugar Milk Tea (P95/regular, P105/large), to cream-cheese topped sips like the Jasmine Tea Cream Cheese (P105/regular, P115/large) and more.
As for safety measures, Tomas Morato branch Operations Head Jaclyn Chung has shared that they've got hands-free contract tracing you can do from your phone. The store also is also disinfected with UV light every night, and you can find a thermometer stand and automatic alcohol dispenser at the entrance of the store. While the café can usually seat 15 people, they're limiting capacity to 50% for now.
Kurimi Milk Tea Bar is at 88 Scout Limbaga Street, Sacred Heart, Quezon City. For more information, check out Kurimi Milk Tea Bar's Facebook page.
