Ask Midtown Lunch: Bubble Tea
“There used to be a bubble tea café right in the middle of Times Sq., but it appears to have been replaced by one of those terrible Tasti D-lite (fake) ice cream places. Dishes offers exactly one type of bubble tea, “fruit-flavored jasmine tea”, with one type of tapioca and three choices of fruit jelly. They don’t even offer the basic milk pearl tea. At $3.50 it’s a ripoff and a poor attempt at trendifying a delicious commodity item. It’s the perfect remedy for Starbucks, especially in the summer–the tea tastes better, it’s healthier and cheaper, and refreshingly cool! Where has all the midtown bubble tea gone?”

The only Bubble Tea I’ve seen remotely close to Midtown is on 9th Ave. btw. 47+48th @ Pearl on the Sushi. But technically, 9th ave. is out of ML range… anybody got a bubble tea selection for Lane, more centrally located? Post it as a comment below.
And as always, if you’ve got a question, email it to firstname.lastname@example.org If I know the answer, I’ll let you know- or post it for the Midtown Lunch readers to answer.
