Here in Singapore, I'm in the search for the best glass of bubble drink (the best for my tastebuds, anyways.) Tried a version using Chocolate Milk from Gong Cha Plaza Singapura (can't remember the price exactly but my guesstimation is $3+), but found the pearl tapioca to be somewhat unpleasant tasting after a while.
|The object of my obsession|
Then, by chance I discovered Kopi With Pearl ($3) at the Asian food court at Lucky Plaza, where I frequently go to enjoy halal Indonesian grub. A no-frills stall, the coffee is the kind that is handmade hot by a Chinese uncle using condensed milk, before adding it into a glass with bubbles and topped with ice. I'm not much of a coffee drinker so the fact that I fantasize about this one is really kind of a big deal.
And last but definitely not least, there is Chatime. My ex-roomie, Tania, insists that their pearl tapioca is the most delish. After much deliberation (I walked past the stall four times before finally giving in to temptation), I decided to try their Hazelnut Chocolate Milk Tea with Pearls ($3.80) with 30% sweetness and less ice. All I can say is thank goodness it's not too close to my place, or else I'd be in big, big trouble!
So there you have it. My verdict on some of the bubble drinks available in Singapore. I know this review isn't complete what with me leaving out places such as Each A Cup, I Love Taimei, and best-seller KOI, but I really gotta put a halt on this now before it gets too convenient for this bubble nut to get a cup anywhere...
