YUMMY SOY Philippines: The Singapore Soy Milk Brand Craze in Manila?

Instagram

7/11 UPDATE: You can now drive-through by ordering in advance (+632 555-8334) and pick up your order within the 15 minutes grace period of the parking lot :)

Yummy Soy™ is a popular Soy Milk and Beancurd brand from Singapore. It opened its first local outlet in Robinsons Place Manila last March and a stand-alone store at the Fort Strip beside K-PUB BBQ last June.

It offers a refreshing treat and healthier dessert/snack alternative to milk tea and yogurt selections.

There's definitely a demand for healthier products, but I'm not sure if its "silky smooth, melts-in-your-mouth chilled beancurd" is enough to create another Soy craze here.

The Yummy Soy's Fort Strip store location is a bit odd, located in between two big restaurants -- Modern Sichuan and K-PUB BBQ.

It's a few minutes' walk from Fitness First, Fort Strip.

Here, you can order hot or cold soy milk.

The pricing is a bit high though, possibly trying to match the price range of milk tea and fro-yos.

Original Cold Soymilk (P65 - Regular).

It's best to stick to the original flavor or almond at 100% sugar level if you want to enjoy it.

Chocolate Cold Soymilk (P75).

The chocolate flavor was good.

We did not like the fruit-based flavors because they tasted a bit artificial.

We liked the Chilled Beancurd (a.k.a. our local taho).

You can usually buy taho with sago from street vendors for P20/large cup. In contrast, the  original chilled beancurd with pearls from Yummy Soy™ costs P85/large cup.

★ Strawberry Chilled Bean Curd with Pearls (P95).

We actually liked the Chilled Bean Curd. It was indeed of higher quality and lived up to how it was advertised -- "silky smooth" and "melts in your mouth".

The pearls were big, chewy black balls, similar to those found in milk teas. The strawberry flavor was infused in the bean curd.

Strawberry Slurppy (P85).

I don't quite understand the Slurppy version, described as "beancurd on the go". It's just a different type of drink. Raphael did not like the strawberry flavor and demanded a replacement.

If you do decide to try Yummy Soy, order the Original flavor Chilled Bean Curd with Pearls for an elevated taho experience. I like its advocacy of providing high quality healthier drinks and snacks in Manila.

Their Fort Strip location is just a bit out of the way. You have to pay for parking, not unless you are already in the Fort Strip vicinity.

I don't think it would create a craze yet, but it would certainly cater to the growing health-conscious market of Manila. What do you think?
