Puto Maya with Fresh Mangoes and Sikwate at Tablea Chocolate Cafe

We were flying out of Cebu City after our almost 2 weeks of travel there. I was not expecting anything interesting to find at Mactan Airport predeparture area. I just needed a table and a seat for me to catch up with work while we wait for our flight.

It turns out that there are not many tables in Mactan Airport. Luckily, we saw another person who was on the seats and has a table. When I checked the table it turns out that Tablea Chocolate Cafe offers this. I needed to work so we went to the counter and we had to order something even if we are not looking for anything.

We asked the lady at the counter what was their best seller and she quickly pointed out to the sign in front of us. The sign says “Puto Maya with Fresh Mangoes with your choice of chocolate drink” for 135 Pesos per order.  We decided that we will have that.

Palawan Noni Juice by B.O.G. Coffee Shop

I was waiting for my flight back to Manila in Puerto Princesa, Palawan when I decided to walk around the departure waiting area due to boredom. Then I saw this sign

B.O.G. Coffee Shop - Palawan Noni Juice

I’ve seen a lot of noni fruits on my travels around the country, mostly in off-the-beaten path beaches but this is the first time I saw that they make it as juice.

I ordered one (1) Noni Juice for 140 Pesos. A bit hurtful for my budget since I’ve almost spent it on my trip to El Nido.

Since I was bored and there were no other customers lined up, I decided to talk to the baristas. They were fun to talk to and very kind. We were talking and laughing until I curiously asked if the Noni Juice was good. Suddenly, there was this awkward silence from all the baristas. That gave me the cue to brace myself for this drink.

When I arrived at home I told my parents about it and they said that Noni is actually a drank to help diabetes and other sickness just like the billboard above says.

How did it taste like? Yucky! Not my cup of tea. Just a sip from it would define it as medicinal drink because it tasted like medicine.

All along I thought I could finish my Palawan Noni Juice but I could not.

Was it worth it? Yes! It was worth the try. At least when I die I know how a Noni Juice tastes like. I just wish I don’t get sick so that doctors would not require me to drink it.
