Pandan flavored latte? Yessir. If that piques your interest, pop by Poblacion’s ABKD to give it a whirl. This simple twist on the classic latte packs a refreshing flavor that’s not as sweet as might be expected. The pandan flavor doesn’t overpower the taste of the coffee, it and goes perfectly well with their food. We paired ours with their crowd favorites, Japanese steak silog and shrimp dragon roll. Adapting to local taste buds doesn’t have to mean lower quality coffee—just be sure to look for shops that highlight their coffee as central to their identity and make sure they still give attention to the quality of their beans. And having a creative barista who’s willing to curate and experiment with their own signature beverage is also a good sign. Like at ABKD, for example. If you’re a daily latte drinker, this will be a nice change of pace from your routine.
