Let’s keep this short and sweet. We were in Chinatown and wanted to grab bubble tea to go. Try Again Beverages House is tiny, cramped and tucked away in the basement of the HSBC building (take a quick left when you walk down the stairs) so this fit the bill perfectly. No room to sit and linger. They also have a million drink options to choose from. Seriously, every combination you can think of is on that massive list. I like how you can get three types of fruit combos but that’s probably why their drinks are so pricey (mostly in the $6.00 – $7.00 price range).
This is cash only (duh brah, you in Chinatown). I think it’s run by a daughter and mother combo. The mother scolded me for taking photos of their place inside…but the daughter/younger person working was a sweetie. Don’t really understand all their “no” rules but it is what it is.
Papaya mango jackfruit milk with lychee and green apple tea ($6.75 each)
I went with the fresh fruit option of papaya, mango and jackfruit (!). Tasted like real fruit and was refreshingly good. My friend had her go to drink, green apple tea, and she was satisfied.
Good place for bubble tea. They are fast and you can grab some Chinese buns while you’re in the area.
