Good bubble tea - solid tea flavour, nice froth, well made tapioca pearls - nicely chewy, with a slightly denser core.

Kaya butter toast is merely ok. The toast is well made, pleasant whole wheat, with a lovley slightly drippy varnish of butter. But the kaya needs more flavour. Not even close to the rendition at Sedap. I suppose it's the different between the stuff in a jar vs made from scratch.

A pleasant place with some dessert options that might warrant further investigation. Need to try the other flavours of bubble tea (unknown if they use powder or fresh ingredients for flavouring). And the mango et al puddings look decent. Will also be back to try their Ipoh style white coffee.

Free internet access and wifi.

Upstairs from Leong's Legends on Macclesfield street.
