I think this joint is worth mentioning in this blog reason is their milk tea is really good. At the same time, their Tako Balls are really good as well. Found this little joint just below the hotel when I was in Guangzhou. I believe they have many joints in the whole of Guangzhou.
Taste: Very nice and good snack.
Portion: Above average.
Price: RMB$8 for a large cup of milk tea. Tako balls at RMB$8.50 if I remembered correctly.
RTE: Yes if I come across this same franchise store.
It’s been months since I last updated. Apologies as things got busier since in China. Anyways, this is one of the popular bubble tea chain of shops in Shenzhen. It’s totally affordable and taste is quite alright.
Taste: Pretty good. But don’t like the choice of milk. Look out for another review of mine later in this blog.
Portion: Big cup.
Price: RMB$10 for charcoal roasted Wu Long Milk Tea.
RTE: If there is a craving… I think the other one I’m reviewing later is a lot better.
Location: All over Shenzhen. This one is at Hua Qiang Bei.
Apart from the Japanese food restaurant, I was also brought to this bubble milk tea shop COMEBUY which is located just across the street of Citimall, which is a landmark shopping mall in Yuen Long.
I was bitching about the silly name COMEBUY… but after thinking for a while, it’s actually a very strategic name. Reason is, this bubble milk tea chain is originated in Taipei, Taiwan. This stall is a prolly a franchise. So back in the year 2002 when it started, that was the boom of bubble milk tea then. Then as most of us understand the fact that not many Taiwanese speak English back then… even now… so this catchy name is actually quite easy to remember. Another reason is prolly the owners also wants their customers to COME & BUY if they are COMING BY. So I thought that was quite cute. Haha…
So we were at the shop, got queue there, so I tried the original thing of course. HKD$12 for normal cup size or a large cup size for their Double Q Milk Tea. Of course I took the large cup size lah then they printed out a receipt with your queue number. After printing out our receipt, another printer also prints out the order number in a smaller piece of sticker for the girls to stick to the cups for processing. 2 cups ordered = 2 stickers. Very systematic… so no quarrels of who came first and all that crap. Check out the pics below:
Taste: This bubble tea chain has many years of choosing the right tea leaves and blending that perfect cup. The rich smoothness of this bubble milk tea I have never tried before in Singapore. I was looking around behind if they had a cow there for milking after my first sip. Super nice!
Portion: Above average.
Price: HKD$12 (SGD $2.18)
RTE: Definite yes!
Location: Opposite Citimall. Once you are there, just ask around. Hong Kongers love to tell you if you just ask. For more information, can check out http://www.comebuy2002.com.
Ok you guys must be wondering how come I’m featuring bubble tea instead of some cuisine from some place right? Well apart from the famous chain of stores for bubble tea, Each A Cup, this store deserves some recognition also for their dedication to offer the best to the population especially the kids around the whole of Ubi Avenue 1 neighbourhood.
Taste: This shop serves a lot of different flavours of bubble tea… try the Gula Melaka one, damn nice. They use fresh milk, the taste is just different from other neighbourhood stores… The burger is a steal at $3… they have a lot more foodstuffs and snacks. A favourite place with the school kids!
Portion: Standard sizes
Price: $3 for the burger and $1.20 for the bubble tea…
RTE: Definitely! Wanna try the other flavours!
Location: Corner of block 305 of Ubi Avenue 1, just beside block 306 facing the road.
