Fat Straws (DFW)

vktp | Jan 29, 2007 04:38 PM

I made my sister take me to Fat Straws in Plano, which is probably the most reputationally Western-friendly bubble tea joint around. My sister, who's in high school, goes there all the time with her friends, which should be some sort of voucher for its teenage Asian authenticity. She gets the green apple slush with pearls everytime. The non naturally-occurring shade of green was a turn-off to me personally, but maybe I'm too old to fully embrace the cult of bubble tea. I had my standard black milk tea with pearls. Not too sweet. Not too watered down. Not too thick. A little on the bland side, actually. The pearls themselves were just right-- the correct degree of chewy. Not necessarily the best in town, but if you're looking for an introduction to bubble tea, this is the place to hit.
