Bubble Tea’s real draw is their popular bubble tea selection, but if you’ve popped into any of their branches lately, you’ll be surprised to see that their menu has extended beyond the popular drinks made with premium tea and chewy tapioca balls and now includes Japanese fusion comfort food.
Crediting their love for Japanese food, owner Reagan Tan shares, "We prepare Western food the Japanese way. We chose dishes that work well with milk tea." Choose from their "Tokyo side treats" such as Takoyaki (P175), Agedashi Tofu (P135), and their bestselling Okonomiyaki Pizza (P215) or Japanese-inspired pasta dishes such as Tori Pesto Spaghetti (P265), Hayashi Bolognese (P245) and the Spicy Seafood and Tomato Spaghetti (P245).
Sandwiches, burgers, noodles, Donburi rice meals, maki and sushi items are also available at the bubble tea spot. If you’re a fan of salads, go for the Japanese Caesar Salad (P195), with sesame dressing flavored with soy sauce drizzled over pan-fried chicken on a bed of Romaine lettuce with grapes and mangoes. Those looking for more filling meals may choose from the Japanese Chicken Leg Rice (P245 for the quarter chicken), served with garlic rice, sidings and two dipping sauces--yakiniku sauce and ginger with nori, and the Yakiniku Beef Rice (P245), which are heavier-on-the-stomach alternatives.
Proving that the pearl drink fad is far from over, they’ve also added a new flavor to their selection: Honeydew Milk which comes in milk tea and milk shakes, both served with fresh mango bits (P115, medium milk tea; P125, large milk tea; P135 medium milkshake; P145, large milkshake). Adds Tan, "We use first-class ingredients and high calibre tea which we brew everyday. We won’t do it any other way."
Bubble Tea now has four branches located in SM Megamall, SM City The Block, Tomas Morato and the newest branch on Wilson Street in Greenhills houses a second-floor function room for birthdays and meetings.
