When I was in college, I was skeptical why I have the subject Chemistry given the fact that I am taking up Computer Engineering. I remember the mnemonics, Chemical bonds, countless balancing of chemical equations and of course the memorization of the Periodic Table of Elements. You would think, what’s the connection?<sigh> As the semester goes, I learned to love it. The balancing of chemical equation is fun and the experiments, too! 5 Things to Love
I had to give a loud cheer for the mastermind of the café I just recently visited – Bubba Lab. With fellow bloggers and Book Museum’s staffs, we went here for meryenda after an unforgettable tour at the museum.
Here are 5 Things to Love at Bubba Lab. <3
5 Things to Love at Bubba Lab
WHAT TO “LAB”?
They look “labable”
If you are thinking how can a laboratory be incorporated with a café, then you have to pop in to Bubba Lab. Get inside and you will be instantly greeted by the baristas. Oopps, should I call them scienTEAsts? They are neatly dressed in laboratory gowns welcoming you with their sweetest smiles. Ask them what are the best sellers and they will assist you hastily.
They give the lab feels
I once went to a camera/photography themed café where mugs are tumblers that looks like DSLR lenses. Now can you guess with Bubba Lab? Swing by and sip frappes, milk and fruit teas filled inside beakers and flasks. Beaker, flask ,what? Here’s a proof.
They provide lots of choices
For this one, I must admit I wanted to emphasize their awesome menu. There are a lot of choices! The quenchers have a wide selection starting from premium teas to classic, brewed tea to fruit tea. They also have frosts and frappes and 9 choices of toppings too. If you would stay for a little longer in the café, labtizers (appetizers) are also being sold. Also, let us not forget how they design their menu. It looks like Periodic Table of Elements. Have a look!
They have tasty labtizers and quenchers
Have you ever seen the Supernova? What’s a Supernova, by the way? In Science, it is an explosion of a massive supergiant star. The Supernova I am talking is the labtizer of Bubba Lab, the stars are the nachos, fries and squid fritters. The nachos, fries, squid fritters are served separately in a funnel and the funnels are supported by an iron stand. Cheese dip, salsa dip and vinegar are also served. With the exploding flavors of these finger foods – definitely this is like a Supernova. We also tried Crinkly Fries. The crinkly fries are served also in a funnel and we got the flavored fries. It’s not bitin and I mostly enjoyed the sour and cream flavored one. It’s just so mouthwatering!
I enjoyed my order MX or the Mango Tea Frost. Love the salted caramely frost at the top. And of course mango! It is not too sweet. Just a perfect balance of tea, mango and milk.
The café is a lably place especially with labmates
What would you not lab [love] for a place perfect for chitchats, meetings and dates. It is spacious and even has seats outside. The theme of a chemistry lab would not give you the hospital-ish feeling you do not like. The theme was executed seamlessly with a touch of quirkiness. Overall, the chemistry lab theme worked for me. I would definitely go back and I would bring with me other labmates.
We had a game to relax while here with the Book Museum staffs as the game masters. Being here is perfect to cap off the day.
