HI All,

From New Orleans, and loving NYC!!!!! even though it's freezing.

Anyways, I've been to Flushing and Chinatown but it's still hard for me to find black sesame bubble tea. I know, must be a weird flavor. I had one at Sago in Flushing, and all they did was put black sesame powder (I think) in the milk tea - not what I was expecting.

So if one of you out there loves black sesame as much as me, please fill me in on where I can get it in bubble tea form. Also any areas where they serve the sago pearls (the small clear tapioca pearls) instead of the regular bubbles? (largeer black tapioca pearls).

AND, if you have an opinion on the BEST EGG CUSTARD TARTS, please do tell. I want the kind that has a flaky crust. I have not run into any so far.

Oh, while I'm asking and u're still reading - where can I get really good tofu hua? You know the homemade tofu that is silken and comes with the sweet ginger syrup? Served hot?? It's a chinese dessert. Toufa.

Appreciate it guys. THANKS!
