Rarely do we encounter an authentic restaurant that stands the test of time. To do so, the restaurant must remain relevant to the crowd, getting on with the modem trends while still preserving its traditions. This ls how ERSAO, an authentic Taiwanese restaurant. has managed to succeed despite the changing times and is now celebrating 20 fruitful years in the business.


The term “ER-SAO” is actually a set of Chinese words which means “wife of the second eldest brother in the family” (or second sister ln-Iaw); a reference to the family placement of the founder and President, Ms. Joy Yao, previously a restaurant owner from Taiwan who has since lived in the Philippines.

What started out as an individual milk tea shop in Banawe, Quezon City in June 2000, is now a restaurant chain with more than 30 branches and franchisees all over the Philippines. Today, ERSAO celebrates the grand re-opening of their 2nd Banawe branch which now adapts an updated brand logo and a modem interior design imbibing a more minimalist look while maintaining hints of Chinese traditional architecture referred collectively as ERSAO version 2.0.

Throughout the years, ERSAO has expanded its menu from just milk teas into a whole line of Taiwanese snacks like dumplings, specialty noodles, lice toppings, and more.

Authentic Taiwanese Flavors: Food and Beverages 

Among the reasons why ERSAO remains a favorite Taiwanese restaurant by many is its Quality food and beverages.

One of ERSAO’s bestsellers is the Signature Beef Noodles – a large sewing of thick noodles, 3 rich broth, and bralsed beef. A perfect side dish would be the Soybathe Dumplings a freshly steamed delicacy bathing in a special soy sauce.

While staying true to Its Taiwanese roots. ERSAO incorporates other Asian flavors to Its dishes as well, appealing to the palate of many more restaurant-goers. Other bestselling dishes include Sesame Oil Chicken Mishua, Taiwan Beet Rice, the Savoury Seafood Pancake, and Pork Chao Fan.

A Milk Tea Pioneer
