Homie’s Milk Tea & Takoyaki: Homie Away from Home

Eeiii, Panagbenga is just around the corner.

Can’t wait till Session Road in Bloom, where all the scrumptious munchies converge in one spot (Definitely my favorite part of the Flower Festival. Oh, savory street eats, refreshing beverages after a few rounds up and down the street). But that’s still days in the future.

Now, RIGHT NOW, we have a new milk tea shop, not far from Session, that also happens to be a great source for takoyaki … and ramen.

Race contemplating the milk tea list … Detective Conan is helping. =b

When they opened their doors for a dry run, I received a message of invitation from Ms. Shy to come for a visit. As if conspiring to push us into it, the temperature the succeeding days, as you well know, dear reader residing in Baguio, got lower and lower, leaving me thinking I should set it up pronto. =)

Miso ramen and chashu ramen ^^,

Cousins Sir Nazareth and Ms. Shy welcomed us to their cozy, takoyaki frying warm, little store and as we were checking their list of interesting teas, they got us started with ramen bowls: Charsu and miso. We started eating straight away while Sir Nazareth told us more about this milk tea depot that first started in Iba, Zambales. *sip ahh, comforting warmth and luscious soup. A moment of silence please (on my part *teehee), while I savor the ingredients in the bowl on its own (Whoa, the meat slices!) and as a symphony of flavors that came together deliciously, not one overpowering another.

What type of takoyaki, was the question of the day for Race and me. Especially for the indecisive, Homie’s has a sampler with two of every variety. I popped the octopus takoyaki into my mouth first, and noted what a well made snack ball it was. The taste got better and better as I went through to the quail egg one and then with bacon inside. ^^,  Imagine a kwek kwek/tokneneng on steroids with all its embellishments. Home made bacon was used in the bacon takoyaki, nyum! All three, tasty batter bombs.

Like obedient children, X+1 went for whatever drink was suggested to us. The Starbucks inspired matcha milk tea with oats had a nice touch of textures in the gulps I sipped from the metal straw. Also, very reminiscent of Korean misugaru drink. The Thai tea, always our favorite milk tea, became even more fun to drink with egg pudding add ons. As large milk teas, they came in (beer) mugs that gave me an “I’m a Viking” vibe. I had to keep from slamming the glass onto the table after I took a sip. Later, we were also given a “love tea” to sample which was a rose flavored very girly looking drink. Bye bye, Viking. =))

Love tea, oatmeal matcha, Thai milk tea =D

Not only the takoyaki and milk teas are outstanding here, but the noodles too. The yakisoba, that was recently added to their menu, was an interesting take, with spaghetti for noodles (how versatile) and a generous sprinkling of sesame seeds (a most potent, small but terrible, nutty seasoning <3).

X marks Homie’s Milk Tea & Takoyaki for good food … and drink in Baguio. After a day’s interval, we were back for more takoyaki and osmanthus and wintermelon milk teas. *nomnomnom Homie away from home … suits us juuust fine.  Really glad they brought Homie’s to Baguio, making it a second home. (“,)

    Just what I was looking for. Ramen the best for days like this in Baguio. It looks like Homie’s added ramen at the right time. 🙂
