More bubble tea in the Mid-Hudson Valley!

I was driving down Rt. 52 in Wappingers Falls today and noticed a sign for Harajuku Asian Cafe. The space is pretty big, with an extensive menu and fairly large, well-lit seating area. I only had the taro bubble tea, which was decent. The menu looks pretty interesting though. I would have definitely ordered the pork 'n' chive dumplings or the Shanghai juicy buns, if I hadn't just eaten lunch. The cashier said that they had been open for a few months.

I also checked out Formosa Cuisine near Marist College in Poughkeepsie about a month ago. It is tucked behind Kona Coffee House on Marist Dr., with a nondescript entrance; however, when you walk in, the space is huge. I tried a steamed pork bun (under $2) and the taro bubble tea. The pork bun was much bigger than I anticipated. It was stuffed with savory pork. Delicious. I would say it was about the size of a dessert plate. The taro bubble tea was also very good.

Formosa Cuisine doesn't have a website, but they do have a Facebook page:

I'm still a huge fan of Twisted Soul's ( lychee bubble tea, but it's nice to see a few more bubble tea places in the area.
