Candy Cafe Bubble Tea London – If you haven’t tried a Bubble Tea, you’re missing out!
The Candy Cafe Bubble Tea London shop was one of the first places to offer Bubble Teas in London and while a thousand other ‘bubble tea’ chains have popped up since, nothing beats the original. It’s tiny, and hard to find, but make the effort. Bubble Tea is just ONE of the amazing signature dishes that the Candy Cafe Bubble Tea London shop now offers.
Head on up to their Sit Down Cafe. The Candy Cafe Bubble Tea London shop has a sign out front, but is up a set of wonky wooden stairs. Newcomers are often surprised by the tiny size of the dining area but it’s quaint with wooden tables and seating. Oriental pop plays on the TV for an authentic China Town experience. You’ll be in the company of a young hip crowd in a fun boisterous atmosphere. Tip: Leave the pram behind.
What is Bubble Tea? Otherwise known as Pearl Milk Tea, or Tapioca Pearl Tea.
It’s a colourful drink with black ‘tapioca pearl’ bubbles at the bottom. You choose a base flavour (served hot or cold), the bubbles are added last, and then you are given the tea with a thick straw so you can suck them up! It’s like chewing a gummy bear lolly in a drink. Bubble Teas are YUM!
This place is best for bubble teas and dessert with massive portion sizes. Find your savoury fix elsewhere. They do serve Malaysian Ipoh Coffee in a variety of flavours too (it’s super sweet) but we’d stick with what they do best – bubbles!
- An all day snack in Malaysia and Singapore, it’s a sweet coconut spread (coconut milk base with eggs, sugar, and pandan leave infusion) served on toast or on pancakes.
- Crystal Snow Ice, as it’s better known, is shaved ice flavoured with fruit and juice in flavours mango, strawberry, kiwi, peach, honey peach, red bean and ice cream
- Flavoured jelly combined with sago. Try it as mango, taro, honeydew, strawberry pudding, milk with honey peach and egg with red bean.
Red Bean Grass Jelly
- My boys and I are suckers for sweet “anko” red beans so this warm dessert of red beans AND jelly with sago cream sounds like our kind of thing. Add matcha green tea ice-cream and we’re never leaving.
More Cold desserts you can try
- Dry dumplings
- Herbal jelly
- Soya pudding
- Black Black – coffee shaved ice with grass jelly
- Japanese sweet crepe delights with your choice of filling – strawberry, mango, kiwi, red bean or cheese cake, sugar and butter, chocolate, peanut butter, and cream or ice-cream.
More Hot Desserts you can try
- “Sweet Soup” in banana, taro or red bean flavour. The soup base is sago pearls with coconut cream. Mouth is watering.
- Dumplings in flavours such as plain, black sesame, peanut, and red bean with your choice of base – sugar cane syrup, soya milk or sago with coconut cream.
