64 – On Soft-Serve Worth Returning For: Milkcow, Eastwood Mall

Whenever the term “soft-serve ice cream” is mentioned, the first thing that comes to people’s minds would be the unhealthy versions that are sweetened with sugar and contain a lot of calories. I always see these being sold in malls and convenience stores – and I admit, I used to like them back when I was younger. It’s a different thing for me now when it comes to ice cream. However, CJ and I discovered a wonderful soft-serve ice cream place that serves a healthier version that makes use of organic milk and natural honey.

Barely half a year old, Milkcow in Eastwood City is slowly becoming a popular destination. This small store from Korea opened only last December, occupying a spot that formerly belonged to a soymilk and taho (sweet beancurd dessert) restaurant. Milkcow sells soft-serve ice cream made from organic cow’s milk and vanilla, with pure natural honey from Korea serving as a healthy sweetener. The place isn’t only limited to ice cream, howeverโ€”they also serve macarons, savory fare such as filled croissants, and hot coffee drinks.

As usual, the curious boo wanted to try it out – to which I obliged. Eastwood wasn’t a problem, having worked there for more than a year in my first job. Here’s a short snippet of our conversation (translated from Filipino):

The big day came, and we excitedly arrived at Milkcow. It had limited space with a lot of black and white colors that mimicked cow spots, with the brown tables and seats giving a pop of color. It had two doors allowing customers to enter at one door, buy their ice cream, and exit at the other. Blocks of raw honeycomb and macarons in a wide range of flavors are displayed near the counter for everyone to see. According to this article by Spot.ph, the macarons they use here are supplied by Mrs. Graham’s Macaron Cafe at Scout Rallos. If that’s the case, it’s a combination worth returning; Mrs. Graham’s yummy macarons jives well with Milkcow’s sweet and healthy soft-serve.

That’s it for the introductions, here are the pictures from our trip. Do visit Milkcow’s Facebook page here and stay connected. Until the next review here at The Monching’s Guide, bon appetit.

  1. Anong lasa? Creamy? Anong price range nila?
    BTW! Baka maligaw ka sa MOA, maybe you guys can review rin Merhaba Turkish Ice Cream haha! Sorry medyo shameless plug sa bagong business ng friend ko. They started it just this year. Never been there pa, but you know, maybe you will before I do, mauna ka makapag-review. Haha! Thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • How do I put it…imagine mo yung gatas na naka-box na tamang tamis lang at may kaunting lasa ng vanilla, na ginawang ice cream. And yes, creamy siya; isang serving lang, ayos ka na XD

      P110 – P170 ang magiging damage sa wallet mo, depending sa flavors na kukunin mo (pinakamahal yung may macaron). Kahit mahal, alam mong masarap talaga (parang gusto ko ngang bumalik ulit eh) =))

      Sige, try naming puntahan – may naka-backlog pa namang isang restaurant sa MoA na ire-review namin ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Thaat is the fluffiest thing I have ever seen! But it somehow looks like detergent sud ๐Ÿ™‚
    How does it feel on the tongue though? Natutunaw ba?

    And what is that bee-hive like thing? Pancakes? Mukang masarap! with hoooney! ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Hehe, it really melts in the mouth and ramdam mo yung lasa – parang yung milk na nasa karton na ginawang soft-serve. Matamis, yes – pero yung hindi nakaka-umay ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Yung yellow blocks naman, honeycombs na ginagawa ng mga bubuyog after extracting nectar from the flowers. Pino-process yung blocks na yun to extract the honey ๐Ÿ˜€ (Though, we have yet to try the ones with honeycomb) XD
