At our first visit, NAHMJ fell in love with Paik’s Coffee cheap and good Americano. Recently, a new launch, Paik’s Coffee Korean Smoothies, consists of 3 new flavours. This new range of Smoothies is available at all 3 Paik’s Coffee outlets in Singapore.
We visited the Paik’s Coffee at Mapletree Business City, similar to their Tiong Bahru outlet, whereby a Paik Bibim is within the same premise. This outlet too has a consistent image with sunshine yellow.
Not only is the drinks huge and affordable, certainly tasted more than decent, Paik’s Coffee is not a takeaway concept but a cafe with seats.
Paik’s Coffee Korean Smoothies
The 3 Paik’s Coffee Korean Smoothies has interesting atypical flavours. Initially, we were skeptical about the taste of some flavours, however, they caught us by surprise. These smoothies are as either a meal replacement or healthier choice of drink.
From the lightest flavour among the 3 Paik’s Coffee Korean Smoothies is the Sweet Potato Smoothie 24oz ($5.50). Savour the creaminess filled with light sweet potato flavour. A popular Autumn / Winter slush in Korea.
Mitsugaru Smoothie 미숫가루 24oz ($5), a popular Summer-only drink in Korea. Made from Korean roasted grain powder comprises beans, nuts and mixture of healthful ingredients like barley, rice (glutinous and non-glutinous, black, brown, and white), millet, soybeans, and sesame seeds. A very healthy nutritious whole grains drink with high protein and is easy to digest. A highly aromatic drink with Japanese barley taste note with faintly grainy texture.
The Coconut Coffee Smoothie 14oz ($5.50) won thumb-up from all and it is the strongest flavour among the 3 smoothies. A good balance of both Coconut and Coffee flavour existed. In addition, Nata De Coco were added to provide some bite. Overall flavour note was rich, intense, bold and creamy cum nuttiness.Though all of us love it, NAHMJ thinks that you need to love both Coffee and Coconut to enjoy this Smoothie.
Among the 3 Paik’s Coffee Korean Smoothies, the ranking from least to most favourite is Sweet Potato Smoothie, Misutgaru Smoothie and Coconut Coffee Smoothie.
