I heard they were having the promotion days where each cup was sold for IDR 40k and as for today, it’s now back to their normal price (IDR 50k), I really didn’t expect that each cup would be THAT large. To be frank, I didn’t finish everything and left almost 1/2 of the cup because I was very bloated, if you’re not a big eater/drinker, get one and share for two.
So was it really THAT good and worth the hype? Mango is easily one of my most favorite fruits (if not my favorite) as beverage, I think the hype comes with the territory tho, it’s a newly opened spot and there’s just the thing with new places and good promotion, but I honestly don’t think I would EVER queue 2 hours just to get what technically is a mango juice, a mango puree with thick sweet cream in between and topped chunky mango slices and mango sorbet.
I don’t know how to properly drink this, is it to have it just like that? or you mix everything together first? To be fair, I did try both ways and I found that after I mixed everything together, I like the balance of everything better. One thing that I expected was actually that hint of sour for an extra refreshing touch on my palate, it was just mainly monotone and plain sweet.
Overall, I think I like Hong Kong Cafe’s “Mango King” better, in terms of elements and flavor.
