Vivi Bubble Tea Kiosk Spotted At Bottom Of The FiDi

There’s bubble tea to be had at the bottom of Manhattan, with Vivi Bubble Tea opening a small shop right next to Yips on Beaver St. (btw. Broad & New). Much like the outlet on John St., there was a line outside, perhaps made up of people fresh off a visit to Yips’ buffet.

Vivi’s Bubble Tea Has A Cheap Steamed Bun Lunch (But Go Early)

You may be able to get steamed buns at some of the Chinese spots in the Financial District, but they’re often over priced and underwhelming. Vivi Bubble Tea on John St. (nr. Nassau) is not necessarily a place you would think of for anything other than a liquid lunch.

Now you can get something to eat alongside your various tea-based drinks at Vivi Bubble Tea on John St. (near Nassau). The Taiwanese drinks shop now sells steamed buns filled with roast pork or sweet taro.

Vivi Bubble Tea Opens Today With BOGO Special


The offshoot of Chinatown’s Vivi Bubble Tea  on John St. (nr. Nassau) soft opened yesterday, and is officially open today with a special to lure people in during this cold snap. A sign out front advertises a buy one, get one free offer which you can either graciously share with a co-worker or hoard for yourself and call it lunch. This apparently excludes slushes, hot drinks and smoothies, and the BOGO special’s good through the end of January.

Vivi Bubble Tea Coming To FiDi

It seems like stores devoted to beverages are the latest trend coming to the Financial District. This awning for Vivi Bubble Tea was spotted on John St. near Nassau, and it’s a second downtown location of a Taiwanese chain that’s also on Bayard St. in Chinatown. I’d have to say, this excites me more than the Magic Mix Juicery bringing its $10 juices to Fulton St.
