Bubble World (Metrotown): More Than Just Bubble Tea
When I think of Bubble World, the first thing that comes to mind is bubble tea. And if you go visit their Kingsway location in Vancouver, that’s pretty much all you can get. However, if you travel east down Kingsway for a bit, you’ll find their Metrotown location which also serves up classic Taiwanese fare.
After a second failed attempt to visit nearby Chengdu Spicy Restaurant, I decided to cut my losses and try out this Bubble World location. They don’t have a very large menu to pick from so I opted for the Traditional Stew Pork ($8.95 + $1.50 for rice) and added a Lemon Black Tea ($4.25) which was served in a large glass mug.
The stewed pork dish included 6 smallish pieces of chunky and fatty pork served on top of some greens. While the pork wasn’t super tender (like you’d find in a good mui choy kau yuk dish), it was still pretty good and included a couple of chili pieces which kicked things up a bit.
The interior of this restaurant isn’t very spacious and the Taiwanese pop music that they have playing in the background can get a bit loud. However, overall, it was a pretty good visit.
