  • FRNK Milk Bar in Alabang: Manila’s First Authentic Japanese Milk Bar
  • We’re here to give you reasons to try FRNK Milk Bar–Manila’s first authentic Japanese Milk Bar–now!

    Frostfive Inc., in partnership with Isabelle Daza and in collaboration with Morihan, one of Japan’s largest producers and exporters of maccha, introduces a new beverage concept that provides guilt-free drinking experience for everyone. The team reimagined a beverage concept by incorporating the various health needs of the people, thus, paving the way to a plant-based milk brand—FRNK.

    FRNK is not going after the “milk tea” chain. Instead, they brand themselves as a “craft milk bar”, where milk is the front and center while chocolates, teas, fruits, and other ingredients are just there to complement and further add flavors. Meanwhile, their teas are sourced from Morihan, which comes straight from Kyoto, Japan.

    With all the dietary restrictions that people have to face on a daily basis, getting a cup or trying out a new drink in town with milk may be hard. But with FRNK, they offer both dairy and non-dairy, letting their customers customize their own drinks according to their liking.

    Most of their drinks are made with whole or coconut milk, but Isabelle came up with an idea to introduce the vegan-friendly almond milk.

    Guests can even watch how their drink is being made!

    With all these choices, customers now have the freedom to choose what they’d like to consume without sacrificing too much. Not to mention that some of the drinks also have lower calorie count!

    Since we got to try it first, here’s a sneak peek on what you can order at FRNK Milk Bar!

    If you’re looking for something similar to a milk tea drink, you might as well get their Blue Lava Miruku. Unlike your usual milk tea, this one is not too sweet and it goes well with the blue tea pearls, almost similar to tapioca balls but smaller. The tapioca balls are infused in butterfly flower tea that adds more flavor to the drink.

    If you’re one who loves maccha drinks, the Ichigo is definitely one you should try. It is hand-whisked Uji Maccha, with homemade strawberry jam and basil drops. The maccha flavor definitely stands out the most here. It’s a little strong but it is well complemented by the milk and the blue tea pearls—perfect drink for your bittersweet tastebuds!


    Of course, what’s a milk drink without its popular partner, chocolate? If you’re one who loves chocolate, the Kokoa Miruku is perfect for you. It has fresh milk and cocoa, plus blue tea pearls. This is the perfect drink for anyone’s sweet tooth because it has a good amount of chocolate inside!

    Those who would like to customize their own milk can request for either dairy or plant-based milk. For the dairy milk, you can choose from the fresh or non-fat milk while for the plant-based, you can try out their almond milk or brown rice milk. Just add Php 10 for small and Php 15 for tall. Fun fact: most drinks are also gluten-free.

    One of the best parts here? Customers can watch how their drinks are made, from whisking down to cupping and shaking. Plus, you can also bring your own reusable cup, straws or tumblers, and even request your drink to be completely plant-based!

    Apart from the drinks, FRNK has currently four baked goods on their menu. They have the Flourless Kokoa Cake, Flourless Chizu Cake, Japanese Checkered Cookies, and Japanese Coco Macaroons.
