This is actually a bad review for this coffee shop located at Block 811 Hougang Central, just opposite the entrance of Hougang Mall’s main entrance… Dunno why it’s named as a restaurant but that’s not the main issue. The main issue with this place is the drinks stall. The drinks are all overpriced… Overpriced is ok with anyone I guess but at least make your drinks taste good right?
A Kopi-C kosong (coffee with evaporated milk & no sugar) cost $1.20 (or was it $1.30?) and totally watered down! I was basically drinking hot water with a little coffee taste and a little evaporated milk! Drain water may taste even better! I read from foursquare that their milo is also bad! Overheads may be high but come on, not so bad until you scrimp so much from your drinks right?? Imagine it was so bad that I swore I had to write this article! Hope the owner reads this and do some changes for the prices they are charging…
But with all due respect, the chicken rice there is awesome but be prepared to queue during peak hours!
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.
