If you’re a big fan of bubble tea and hanging out late, J’s Tea is the place. It’s right at the end of Dominion Road (in Mt Roskill). The size of the bubble tea is huge and drinks are well-made. They even have the right sweetness, and this I like, because normally all bubble tea are too sweet for me!
Sesame Bubble Tea with Pearl.
They have a range of snacks and food, but bubble tea is the main item here. J’s Tea is often packed, especially on Friday and Saturday nights, so be prepared to go for take away.
Highly recommended, 9/10.
It’s been a while since I’ve been to Meadowlands. Maybe my behaviour is now different after not having a company car =). But thanks to a good friend, I’ve paid a visit to this place by recommendation – Momo Tea House. There’s obviously a couple branches, Birkenhead and Mt Albert.
This one at Meadowlands is a former KFC I believe, and it’s got a defunct drive-thru. Parking is easy and free, and environment of the place is great. Maybe it was good old furniture from KFC?
Anyway, I sampled some dishes, see below:
Fried Black Pepper Chicken Chop and Eel on Rice ($12).
Spicy Wonton Noodle Soup ($6).
Deep Fried Salty Chicken ($7).
Taro Pearl Milk Tea ($6).
Overall, food’s taste is great, no disappointment at all. The prices are very reasonable. There is a variety of food and drink (I think there’s a Malaysian section). Also, the place opens very late, I am not sure what time, but from what I remember, after midnight!! So a great place for supper.
Rating = 9/10. Fantastic!
Taiper Kitchen is actually quite a familiar place – it was formerly Lai Lai Noodle House. It looks like the owners changed hands, and first impression, the interior is much better. I was expecting to order the usual stuff (beef noodle soup or something), but it appears the menu’s have changed also.
Some samples below:
Pork Mince Rice with Meat Soup ($10).
Pork Chop on Rice ($9.50).
Atmosphere is much better, price is reasonable, food is quite good, however menu is partly translated into English (only drink items are translated and not food!). This new place also sells drinks such as milk tea, so it appears to do more than before. Perhaps to include more younger people.
My rating is 8.5/10. Not bad at all.
