Top 5 Rainy Day Filipino Food Favorites

rainy day Filipino food list

Whenever it rains, I have this craving for rainy day Filipino food that reminds me of my childhood in the flooded streets of Manila. There’s always something to look forward to after wading through dirty waters that can chase away the cold, and hopefully, the germs. I remember my father or my aunt cooking delicious Pinoy food that would tempt me with their scent, texture, and taste. The warm bowls are a welcome sight on our table and my siblings and I would heartily devour to the last spoonful.

Relax and Refresh with ChaLife Milk Tea

A lot of milk tea shops have sprouted in the Metro lately. Clearly, the milk tea craze has taken Manila by storm. What’s there not to love about milk tea, anyway? Hot or cold? I drink it either way. I prefer to have cold refreshing milk tea in the afternoon and on hot days and warm relaxing milk tea to cap the night. But let’s admit it, it’s not that convenient to have milk tea all the time. Oftentimes, I’m already too tired to prepare a mug after a stressful day. My budget doesn’t allow me to buy regularly from the shops either.

ChaLife Milk Tea
Thankfully, I discovered ChaLife Milk Tea. At only Php 7.50 per sachet, it’s not only affordable but convenient to prepare anytime, anywhere. It tastes good too. I usually ask for 75% sweetness in milk tea shops and ChaLife almost gives that same amount of sweetness. A tip though, it’s best to dilute the mixture first in hot water first for easy mixing if you want to enjoy it cold.
