Yomie’s Rice x Yogurt @ Sydney, Australia

Hi Everyone,

Asian yoghurts are so popular in Sydney they are opening up left right and centre. 2 weeks ago I introduced a new one called Milk Flower and today I will take you to a new one I found in the city CBD called Yomie’s Rice x Yogurt. There was a line when we arrived but it was more fairly quickly.

As we were lining up, you see different signs that advising those who are pregnant or after over 70 years old can skip the line. The next sign further down the line was that everything was made with 100% fresh fruit and best to drink it within 10 minutes but the most important part is they don’t offer delivery like some of the other stores. The best poster which got my attention was definitely them adding purple rice to the drink. Normally I have purple rice in “sugar water” but in a yoghurt drink will be a first.

Here is the menu. A pretty big menu so it was nice for them to break down the 9 most popular one for those don’t know what to choose. We chose number 4 – Haw Purple Rice Yoghurt. We used to eat haw mini biscuits as a kid so it was nice to add it to the drink.

Our drink was made quickly and the little ones were already fighting who was going to drink it first. The liquid content with the purple rice as perfect. The rice was soft and it was well mixed with the yoghurt drink. There was a hint of haw which was not overpowering. The best part of this is the drink was less than $7 which was at least 20% cheaper than the one at Milk Flower (though milk flower’s cup seems a little bigger). If you want a change of drinks for a hot day, try Yomie’s Rice x Yogurt.

Milk Flower @ Chatstwood, Australia

Hi Everyone,

Today we went past a new drink store at Chatswood called Milk Flower. We heard about them previously at another store in Burwood and now they have opened a few more around Sydney. Apparently, this week was their soft opening and there was a huge crowd waiting for their drinks. During this soft opening, they are having a special – 20% off their signature drink or 50% off the second drink from the yoghurt section.

They have a very small menu of drinks which was great for those who are always indecisive. I ordered a mango purple rice yoghurt and my other half ordered their signature Milk Flower drink. It literally took 15 minutes to get our drink due to the number of orders they had. I didn’t get to take a photo of the signature drink as my other half had it before I could even take a proper picture.

The drink was heavy I guess from the yoghurt and purple rice. You need to share it properly before you drink it. There is a picture below on the below and after I shook it. It has a good balance of yoghurt and mango bits inside. There were bits of purple rice in the drink which makes this drink very heavy. The taste was nice and I really liked the mango part of the drink. I can even say its a meal in itself! Personally, I prefer the usual bubble teas as this is really is too thick for my liking and having this after lunch made it harder to finish.
