Hello, BLK 513!
It has been a very long time since I visited BLK 513. If I'm not mistaken, the last time I've been to a BLK 513 branch was two years back.
I found its branches a bit too far or inconvenient for me hence the lack of opportunities to indulge in its famous activated charcoal treats. But my eyes sparkled when I saw its kiosk while walking around Bonifacio High Street.
I bumped into N who ordered its new activated charcoal drink, Pink Drink (PHP125) which made me very curious. And after taking a sip of N's drink, I decided to grab one for myself.
Thankfully, there weren't a lot of people in line when I dropped by and I was quickly assisted after the customer before me.
It took a bit for my drink to be ready as it seemed that not all ingredients for Pink Drink are stored by the display chiller. But I had my picturesque drink within 8 minutes or so.
The delightful combination of oat milk infused with activated charcoal and fresh strawberry slices was light and refreshing. It was predominantly milky in flavor with a bit of tangy kick from the strawberry.
It was a great drink which I wouldn't mind ordering again. However, I wish that they'd put in sweeter strawberry slices instead as the ones I got were too sour to be enjoyed.
