Mr Bean Soya Ice Cream now in the Philippines Part Two
Jul 9th, 2012 by niceyfemme

I was able to drop by last week. Finding it was easy. It’s in the new wing of Alabang Town Center (ATC) , close to Wee Nam Kee where I had late lunch a week before that.

I was actually pretty full already after I had my lunch at Cafe France but I still decided to drop by in Mr. Bean as I am not always in ATC. Plus I really want to know if their soy ice cream taste exactly the same like the one in Singapore which I was crazy about for a long time.

The store here has tables and chairs where in Singapore you buy then take your food away. I usually have my ice cream fix on the way home.

Mr. Bean Soya Ice Cream now in the Philippines Part One
Jun 29th, 2012 by niceyfemme

Since I first step foot in Singapore years and years ago I couldn’t help but fall in love with their food. Their dry beef hor fun (which we thought was the same as char kway teow  are two different dishes we later knew), chinese fried rice, the other version which is nasi goreng (from malay stalls), curry puff from Old Chang Kee which I successfully made at home, grass jelly and Mr. Bean’s Soya Ice Cream. I love it so much I was already thinking of buying my next cup even before I finish the current one I was having. I would have a total of 3 servings a day. I doesn’t help that it’s always crazy hot in Singapore and you have to walk everywhere.

So I guess it is understandable that I’d crave for it whenever I’m home in the Philippines. I so wanted to bring Mr. Bean here in the Philippines if only I had the capital to do so. (I still want to bring Old Chang Kee here. Ok walang uuna saken ha!)  Same with authentic chicken rice. So I tried to make my own soya ice cream at home.  It’s just not the same. I kinda gave up.

Then after my last check up last week in Alabang I headed over to ATC to try Wee Nam Kee’s chicken rice. I don’t know I just had the baddest kind of craving then. Did I like it? Hmmmn. I like their chili. That’s it. Then I was about to leave when I saw a poster of Mr. Bean which made my heart skip a beat. I was in a hurry to leave then so I made a mental note to check them out next time.  I learned that they just opened a couple of months ago. Will do a part two once I get to visit Mr. Bean Philippines and try their soya ice cream.

P.S. This made me want to try my hand at making my own soya ice cream again since I have a tried and tested taho aka tau huay recipe. Hmmmn let’s see if the local Mr. Bean’s soya ice cream will revive my past obsession with it.

Soya Ice Cream with Jackfruit
Jun 3rd, 2010 by niceyfemme

I have the tendency to love “healthy” versions of the regular sinful stuff like ice cream. You guys remember B.T.I.C? As in Better Than Ice Cream? I believe it is frozen yogurt and it tastes so good I loved that when I was still in Peninsula Manila. I needed my fix everyday and I frequent the outlet in Glorietta 4 beside Rustan’s. I wonder if B.T.I.C is still in the market?

Singapore is a hot and humid country, much like the weather we recently experienced here. Summer 2010 is wow! It’s like the natural version of thermogenic fat burners. So hot I feel like I’m lighter heheh.. So one time, when Greta (my housemate) and I went to Sheng Shiong and we passed by Mr. Bean in MRT station, I just had to finally try it. I’ve always wondered if it taste yucky or not. I was so happy with it that it became an addiction. It’s not cheap to have 3 servings a day at SGD 1.80 each.

Since we don’t have Mr. Bean here in Philippines, I tried replicating that soya ice cream I dearly love. I looked for a recipe online and found some. So here is how I did it.

Plus 1 block of Silken Tofu. I have to say this isn’t as soft and smooth as the one I always buy in SG.
