During the quarantine there are many bars in Milan that have enhanced the home service and one of these is Pucatè, a Taiwanese bar that offers nice goodies of Chinese and Japanese extraction.
I tried Pucatè taking advantage of their delivery and I must say that not only is it punctual but it is also really well organized: hot and cold products are placed in separate bags and everything arrives perfectly intact and at the right temperature.
I tried black tea with apple and green tea with plum: both excellent, with pieces of fresh fruit. Then I tasted the delicious wheel cakes, one with azuki jam and the other with caramelized onions and pumpkin: simply space!
Wheel cakes are sweets reminiscent of waffles. Of Japanese origin (Imagawayaki), they can also be found in China, Taiwan and the Philippines.
Pucatè's menu includes numerous preparations which include, in fact, teas with fresh fruit, milk tea and Taiwanese tea, as well as coffee-based drinks. The tastes are varied and also include the classic matcha, caramel and some goodies marked as "special edition", among which the pudding milk tea, the cranberry and milk infusion and the ginger honey lemon tea stand out. For all these preparations you can choose whether to have them with or without ice, hot or cold and also the amount of sugar.
As for food, as already mentioned there are both salty and sweet wheel cakes (including matcha, custard, tuna and corn or chocolate), panna cotta in different versions (matcha, coffee or bubble tea) , egg tea and bian dang, a Taiwanese street-food specialty with pork, rice or noodles.
Simply to try!
