My boyfriend is a fan of bubble tea but we’re not exactly up for waiting too long for it so we came to Xing Fu Tang around 6.20pm on Sunday and waited a total 25 minutes from queue to receiving the drink.
I can’t believe how expensive these drinks are.
Here’s what I think. The taste of the drink was alright, a bit too light for me since it’s pretty much just milk and some cream mousse. I think the caramelised brown sugar on the top is just for show and didn’t actually do much.
I prefer the taste of Tiger Sugar KL which was sweeter but had more cendol-like flavour. You can actually get the milk from the supermarket, it’s repackaged for commercial use but on the shelves it’s branded as Magnolia by F&N.
The pearls at Xing Fu Tang were amazing! I don’t normally eat all the pearls but Xing Fu Tang pearls are a game changer! It’s soft, chewy and sweet. Pretty much the winning component of the drink for me.
25 minutes wait still ok la, 1 hour for this, I don’t think I’d be impressed!
Unfortunately they ran out of most of the drinks so didn’t get to try the other popular flavours.
Here’s a look at how their signature Brow Sugar Boba Milk is made.
