I passed this restaurant a few times already so I decided to solve the mystery if its the same as the one back in Singapore along Middle Road. Was there around 2.30pm so it was not very crowded. Found out that this is the first flagship retaurant before this became a chain of restaurants.
Rating: 5/5. Not only food is good, the service is tip top as well.
Taste: Very nice. Great for families with kids cos not spicy. Best thing is, all the meats are seasoned differerntly. This is definitely different from the buffet style one back in SG. I suspect that one is a copy.
Portion: Above average
Price: Total bill came out to about RMB$250… About SGD$50. Can eat 3 persons.
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.
