A wide selection of different flavored Bubble teas, milks, and ice. Always busy and a hit with the local teens and twenty somethings. Line-ups common on Friday and Saturday nights.
I have been going to this place for bbt since it opened and it has remained my favourite place to grab bbt. Though I have heard their regular milk tea is pretty good, I have never tried it cause I love their fruity drinks and always get them instead. I have tried many bbt places and none of the other places taste as "real/fresh" as this place... and I agree with what others have said, their BUBBLES are the best! The place is small and can get crowded... so the ambiance isn't great but I usually just do take out bbt there. Also, it's been the same people (owners) serving us since I started going. They are usually really nice!
After trying countless other bubble tea houses in the Lower Mainland, Dragon Ball's fresh fruit bubble tea selection cannot be beat for quality and price - $3.75 including pearls. The strawberry and mango fresh fruit is a must for any bubble tea fanatic. Real milk is used if so desired. Once you have tried the fresh fruit with real milk, you will never go back to powdered flavours.
The place is small and designed with take out in mind so lineups do occur after 9 pm on any nights. Service will be slower, but well worth the wait. Tip: bring a small box if you plan to order 4 or more drinks for take out. Easier than using plastic bags.
Simply put the quality of the Bubble Tea here is without par in Vancouver. With so many of these places popping up all over the place, it's easy to try different ones but if you've been to Dragon Ball, the rest will pale in comparison. It's a testimonial to the quality when you see just how busy it is given its oddball location. One of the best tests of the quality of the bubble tea is if the tapioca balls freeze up in the slush, these ones stay soft the whole time you're drinking no matter how long you choose to nurse your drink. My personal favorite is the blueberry slush with half tapioca and half coconut jelly. For those unfamiliar with the snacks at these places, try the thick cut toast with condensed milk.
