Summer selects: 6 classic coolers and eats you can have delivered straight to your doorstep


For cooling off and eating easy on a hot day

Bright, sunny days are here, and that means lots of beach or pool days to soak up some sun and steamy temps. But when it’s too hot outside, the last thing you might want to do is head out and break a sweat—understandably so. On sweltering days, lounging at the cool comforts of your home and cranking up the AC look more promising instead.


Sheltering from the heat on some days, though, doesn’t mean you can’t experience this season’s best—flavor-wise. If you’re keen to take cooling off and eating easy to the next level, we’ve got you covered.


Just log in to your SM Malls Online app (if you haven’t downloaded it already, we suggest you do!) to choose from classic refreshers and meals you can conveniently have delivered straight to your door. No sweat (pun intended)!


Up ahead are our 6 sunny selects, which all hit the mark of a quintessential summer fare. Great news: They’re all at up to 50% off until month-end, with some still being on sale until May 31. 

Crème Brûlée Cream Cheese Milk Tea from The Alley

There’s no need to go outside for a boba excursion when you can easily order The Alley’s bestselling drink right in the comforts of your own home. Now at 30% off until April 30 (from P175 to P122.50), a large cup of their Crème Brûlée Cream Cheese Milk Tea consists of a generous serving of chewy, bouncy tapioca pearls infused with rich crème brûlée milk.

Drinks from Mizusawa Milk Tea and Coffee

Apart from a variety of milk tea and coffee, Mizusawa also offers iced fruity refreshers for cooling down. Until month-end, they’re offering a 30% discount on any two of the same drink—now only P196 from P280. We highly suggest going for their Red Iced Tea, the joint’s house blend in red jasmine green tea with red pomegranate and lychee syrup.


They also carry other fruity, summery drinks such as Passion Fruit Green Tea, Grapefruit Green Tea, and Strawberry Green Tea—all handcrafted for the perfect tropical sip. Having one feels like you’re already by the beach.

Choose from the classic buko refresher or opt for some flavor twists in caramel fudge, choco fudge, or strawberry, all topped with crushed biscuits for added crunch and texture. Instant dessert on a cup!
