Bubble World 大頭仔 (Richmond)

March 21, 2012
Sab and I decided to go for a small snack after class on Thursday night, and we were surprised to find that there was a 15-20 minute wait at Bubble World. After finally being seated, we ordered a couple of dishes to share. We started with a pan fried egg roll with pork floss (肉鬆蛋餅) ($4.45). It was surprisingly good with fluffy pork floss and a spongy layer of egg wrapped inside a thin and chewy pancake. The egg roll went very well with the thick soy sauce served on the side, but it tasted great by itself too.

I'm not a big spicy eater, but I decided to try the wonton in chili sauce (紅油抄手) ($4.95) since I was craving something savoury. It was a bit more spicy than I had bargained for, but it sure hit the spot thanks to the rich and intense sauce. Unfortunately the wontons were a bit cold when they came, which might explain why they were stuck together.

As usual, I ordered milk tea with pearls ($3.95). There were a lot of pearls in the drink and they had the perfect texture: soft, squishy, and just a little chewy. I've also tried the old fashioned milk tea ($4.45) out of curiosity on another visit. When I asked about the difference, the waitress told me the old fashioned version had a distinctive roasted flavour. After trying it, I didn't think there was any roasted flavour and I actually thought the tea tasted really strange. My recommendation is to stick with the regular milk tea; it's cheaper and better.

After stealing a sip of papaya milk ($4.95) on another visit, it has since become my beverage of choice. Fresh fruit and milk beats powdered drinks anytime. I loved the tropical fragrance of papaya combined with frothy milk, but I didn't like how the drink was overly sweetened. I suppose next time I could ask for an unsweetened version.

Bubble World is a good place to hang out with decent food and drinks. It might not be the best place to chat though, especially if you go during late night hours when it's super busy.
