A dessert and bubble waffle paradise near T&T at Metrotown
I dunno if I should give this place a review since I've only tried their Pearl Milk Tea and nothing else. Been here twice since the renovation. I must say, their milk tea is pretty tasty and not too sweet. I normally have to request half sugar at other places. Also their pearls are chewy and perfect. Not super soft or slimy.
The staffs there are quick and efficient. I never had to wait more than 30 seconds to order.
Value wise, it's abit expensive for a to-go place at $3.95 inc/ tax.
We were on our way to T&T to load up on cheap sushi and buns when we saw DD. "Oh, Chasiu, they have bubble waffles!" cried an excited Mrs C. I know when it is time to listen to my beloved, so we hurried in to get some bubble foods.
We shared a bubble waffle and a coconut bubble tea with coconut jelly. The bubble tea was masterfully prepared and was delicious. The bubble waffle was tasty too, but a little overcooked. As for ambience, it is a little dirty and crowded, and the friendly servers were hard-pressed to keep up. We also had a bit of a wait for our order. Luckily, they had a big TV with Canto-pop videos and commercials for DD mixed in.
It was a satisfying snack, and I will be back for more if I am nearby.
My gf decided to stop by to grab a drink, a taro coconut bubble tea to be exact. It would be my first experience with taro bubble tea and it was rather pleasant. The taro added an element of creaminess while balancing out the sweetness of the tea.
Staffers are made up of the younger generation and they do a fair good job considering the setting.
Now, the setting is in a heavy traffic area of Metrotown. It's noisy, it's crowded, and expect lack of courtesy from customers, and this is at the best of times.
Worth a trip if you can quickly get in and out.
