Bubble World is a great place to just chill with friends. TaxMan was back in town, so it just seemed right to catch up with him, M and Scarface.
We decided to go to the North Road Bubble Word location because it’s closer than all the other locations. They have lots of space to sit and talk. It’s best for groups of 4 -6 people. This location does not serve food nor does it serve the drinks in nice cups. It is mostly to go in the plastic cups.
I’ve never loved the bubble tea here for these reasons:
- Most drinks made from powder
- No healthy options like – real milk or fresh fruit
Granted that they do have a few fresh fruit options like Watermelon Slush but its doused in lots of sugary syrup. Bubble World is a chain, so I guess we can’t expect too much.
I usually stick with the hot Milk Tea or the Hot Milky Malt Tea. I find that they use less malt or whatever those crispy little bits in the drink. They use quite a bit of coffee mate in this drink.
M had the chocolate milky tea. He usually gets sick when he has the powdered coffee mate, so he had to talk to the owner for a bit to get real milk into his bubble tea.
The bubble tea here is decent, but it’s pretty standard. Very minimal service since you have to go up to the counter to order and pay.
Words of Wisdom:
- Lots of seats, group of 4 – 6 is best
- Most drinks made with powder
- Can special request milk instead of powdered milk
- under $10
