It was a sunny, yet slightly breezy afternoon as I had helped my mom with a couple errands. By the end of it all we were starving. We decided upon a little Filipino food to appease the stomach. We ventured into Chow King. It a "fast food" joint that serves up some family Philippine meals. I've glod about them before and this particular meal. (here) My mom and I both ordered the half bangus meal.
But this time around I decided to order up a shake to wash it all down. A buko pandan shake.
Look at that nice green color. What's the best way to describe this drink? Well first off...buko (boo-ko) is made from the meat of young coconut. Pandan according to About.com :
Pandan (screwpine pandanus) is a type of tree that grows in tropical areas of Asia. Pandan leaves have a sweet, unique flavor that is commmonly used in Southeast-Asian countries to enhance both desserts and savory dishes.
In actuality it's a dessert made from buko, pandan, gulaman (firm jello-green), cream and condensed milk. They just decided to turn it into a shake over at Chow King. You can see the little bits of jello, and cocnut at the bottom there. So it's a coconut-y drink. But so delicious.
