Yoyo Cafe @Lintas Branch

After the heavy seafood meal at New Gaya Seafood Restaurant, my girlfriend and I decided to take a walk at City Mall to digest large amount of food taken in, but it didn’t take long until we decided to get dessert, so I brought her to Yoyo Cafe at Lintas  Plaza because it offers the best Pearl Milky Tea you can get in Kota Kinabalu, as well as some other drinks as well.

This is their signboard of the shop with the second ‘O’ word taking the shape of a real yo-yo.

We arrived around 10pm and there were quite a lot of patrons as usual as this is quite a common hang out place for youngsters to chit-chat as well as having non-alcoholic drinks.

So we went ahead and ordered our drinks/dessert.
Pearl Tea
Milky Tea with Mini Pearls – RM3.30 (around £0.70)

This is the signature drink of Yoyo Cafe, normally with bigger ‘pearls’ but my girlfriend prefers smaller ones. What differentiates the Milky Pearl Tea of Yoyo Cafe from others is definitely the quality of the ‘pearl’ used. Unlike other places, the ‘pearl’ in Yoyo Cafe has a light sweet taste to it as if it was boiled in syrup water beforehand. Together with their Milk Tea which has a significant aromatic taste, becomes a perfect complement as a drink. Other than the ‘pearl’, you can also have coconut cubes, pudding, glass jelly to go with the Milk Tea, they all taste good so it’s up to your own personal preferences.

Snow Ice
Strawberry Snow Ice – RM3.50 (around £0.70)

Other than drinks, the Snow Ice offered by Yoyo Cafe is also very nice, it is made of ice but the taste of it is really smooth and it makes you feel as if you’re eating ice cream, together with the Strawberry syrup, becomes a dessert that a lot of girls crave for! One thing about the Strawberry syrup is that it could be a bit too sweet if it isn’t mixed well with the Snow Ice.

    I love pearl milky tea and I am satisfied with what I have got here in HK. But surely the “special” pearl mentioned above seems worth a try. Would prefer you to recommend more desserts from the above cafe but it is too much an ask for merely a visit to a cafe lol

    Really nice effort. This would be my source in knowing more Malay food before I could afford a visit to Kota Kinabalu.

      Hmm.. Not sure how Hk one tastes like.. But this one is really worth a try if you ever come to KK.. Chris you’ve known me long enough to know these are called Malaysian food haha.. Hmm I could try to take pics of the menu in the coming blog entries! Just hope I could maintain this cause it’s really a lot of work..

    OMG Eugene!! Why yoyo!! I’m craving for it soooo much now!!! >.<
    And I didn't know that they're second O is actually a yoyo! That's really cute XD

    My personal fav: iced choc with pearl
    My bro's fav: choc milk tea with pudding
    My mum's fav: YOYO mix

    For the Snow Ice, I actually think that what they had a few years back was better. I remember it resembled ice-cream (creamier?) more than their current one.

    I also used to eat their tuna rolls? Those were yum!

    • eugenechiu says:

      Hmm yea snow ice, the one I ate was ok lar.. Still tasted like ice cream somehow.. You mean the tuna cheese toast? That one is awesome haha.. I also just noticed the yoyo when I was looking at the picture I took haha..

  3. Teewai says:
