Where to Eat/Drink

Drinking trend

Hong kong people like following trends. A recent trend they have been in is Taiwanese drink. You won’t miss it. On the main streets in the busy area there must be a Taiwanese drink shop like this, and this is the most popular chain so far – Gong Cha, meaning tea for the royal court and the emperor.

There is a wide variety of drinks offered by these shops ,among which pearl milk tea or bubble tea, as some may call it, is the most well known.

My favorite is not pearl milk tea, but green milk tea and barley milk tea. Try them if you have a chance. But note that although these teas are tasty, they  are not healthy. The likes of pearl milk tea contain diary cream whose main ingredient is a type of trans fat. Don’t indulge them.
