Soya bean lovers will enjoy a variety of soya food and beverages from ice-cream and pancakes to a refreshing cup of ice-blended soya drink. You can always count on Mr. Bean to serve no preservatives or use genetically-modified products including its freshly brewed cup of soya bean milk.
Classic soya bean milk is available hot or icy (from RM3). Then there are watermelon soya, mocha soya, chendol soya, chocolate soya, grass jelly soya and pearly soya or pearly bandung soya.
For drinks, you get to pick the sugar quotient from a five-level chart that starts with no-sugar to low (25 per cent) and normal (100 per cent). I find a moderate (50 per cent) just perfect.
Earlier I made a mistake of ordering watermelon soya blended, with no sugar (RM6.50). The freshly blended watermelon is not enough to sweeten the drink. Low sugar would have done the trick though.
The juice series includes honeydew, carrot and celery. Fruit is an important source of vitamins and fibre. Soya bean milk is a source of protein and calcium. Combining the two adds up to healthier drink.
Soya bean milk and tau fu fah (sweet soya beancurd) are the highlights at Mr Bean. Without preservatives, soya bean milk does not keep throughout the day, so it is prepared a few times daily to maintain freshness.
Mr Bean offers pancakes, both sweet (RM3) and savoury (RM3.50). These are 4cm-thick, coin-shaped discs stuffed with a variety of sweet fillings, from the popular azuki red bean, kaya, chocolate and peanut to caramel custard as well as savoury versions such as tuna, egg-mayonnaise and cheese. There is an on-going promotion of RM15 for six pancakes (any filling).
Mr Bean also offers soya bean ice cream and mango or strawberry smoothies as well as roasted soya beans (RM6) in two flavours — curry and wasabi — for a healthy snack.
Oh, there are lovely Mr Bean toys and fridge magnets on sale too.
