Goin’ back to the place…

If you remember, in my post the other day, I bought the drinks from here and went home thinking that I had taken the dragon fruit one but when I got home, I found that I had two red bean, one mung bean and one pumpkin, no dragon fruit.

The red bean was all right but came nowhere near the red bean shake here and I did not try the mung bean. I suppose it would be more or less like the red bean, evaporated milk not santan (coconut milk) and somewhat mild.

I finally got hold of the dragon fruit last Friday…

It seemed that they may not have what you want all the time so you may have to leave empty-handed or pick something else instead.

For the uninitiated, this is what a dragon fruit looks like inside…

…and that would explain the colour of the drink.

In the drink, there were bits of the fruit and those sago pearls and evaporated milk…

Fruit and pearls

In my opinion, it was quite nice, very refreshing and those who love dragon fruit would like it, I’m sure. As for me, I am not really a fruit person – I only eat bananas – so let’s just say, it did not get me jumping with delight.

I did try some of the others when I dropped by and failed to get hold of the dragon fruit – I remember there was the luo han guo and the passion fruit and one with white fungus and they were all pretty okay and I guess this one that my missus bought…

White fungus and purple sweet potato

…that we have yet to try, would be more or less the same as well.

My favourites would be the thick, rich and creamy pumpkin and also the peanut…

I sure would be grabbing more of these should I happen to be passing by that way again.
