Chai was legit, the spice was substantial and not overpowered by the milk. A good cup of chai latte - just rather pricey, especially for the size of the cup. You could probably get cheaper chai lattes elsewhere with similar standards. One good thing is that they don’t charge extra for iced!

We visited here on a Sunday afternoon and it wasn’t too crowded. Quite a nice casual place to chill with friends.

I loved the super creamy texture! If you’re a fan of cookies and cream, you’ll enjoy this flavour. The milkshake was not one bit icy at all - from the start till end it was just purely creamy, with the taste of cookies and cream. Yes I would order it again!

Visited on a weekday afternoon and it wasn’t crowded, as there are many seats around. Service is not too bad as well. The Burpple deals are super worth it here too!

A good cup of iced coffee, nothing fancy and pretty standard. The fragrant aroma of the coffee beans shone through the smooth milkiness of the drink. I appreciated the coffee to ice proportion - there was just enough ice to chill the cup without overly diluting it. The bittersweet drink was a perfect accompaniment to the savoury sandwiches.

Visited on a Sunday morning and they were already quite busy - seats are relatively easy to get in the morning if you don’t mind the outdoor seating.

The cafe’s classic chai latte (Ceylon OPA, oat milk, coconut sugar) but with the addition of maple syrup and a touch of Himalayan pink salt for that sweet and salty satisfaction. Chai was still as fragrant and the earthiness still came through despite the other flavours going on - I thought the maple syrup and salt was a nice touch without overpowering the drink - they were more like additional accents to the main drink.

If you’re a chai lover and happen to be in the cafe’s vicinity, you can consider dropping by to give this place a try.

Visited on a Saturday morning and it wasn’t too busy. Vibes of the place was very chill and aesthetic, perfect for a weekend morning or afternoon hangout spot.

Had to try this seeing as it was the first option on the menu and had a thumbs up right next to it. (Yes I’m so predictable). Essentially a fragrant Ceylon OPA with oat milk brew, sweetened with coconut sugar. An earthy taste with a smooth mouthfeel. A good cup of chai indeed.

If you’re a chai lover and happen to be in the cafe’s vicinity, you can consider dropping by to give this place a try - you’d be spoilt by the number of chai choices here!

The only criticism I have is that the cup has no handles, and was too hot for me to even hold it, so I couldn’t really hold my drink to drink it. Felt a little silly placing my head close to the table to sip from the cup hands-free. 😂 There was a coaster below but it was quite small and flat, hard to pick up, and felt quite precariously unstable with such a tall cup standing atop it - not sure if it was supposed to be used as a saucer or not but I didn’t take my chances, wasn’t going to spill a nice drink like this.

Want healthy bubble tea? Substitute the milk tea with kombucha. Equally delicious, has an added fizz, and supposedly much healthier!

This drink was very refreshing, with each sip full of citrus zing and fizziness bombarding the senses in your mouth. The yuzu flavour was actually just yuzu pulp + syrup added to kombucha, but it tastes nice so I’m not too bothered about the syrup.

They didn’t ask me for sugar levels so I’m going to assume you can’t customise it. It was definitely on the sweeter side but in a good way.

The crunchy chestnut pearls went amazingly with the drink - think red rubies from your bobochacha dessert! It’s a topping you don’t often see at bubble tea shops so I was happy to be able to get it here.

Kombucha can sometimes be quite expensive so it was great that there was a 30% off Burpple deal for Kombucha here. Worth a try if you’re looking for something different and refreshing.

Coffee was smooth, had a suitable amount of milk, while still retaining its fragrant aroma.

To note, that there’s still an additional 10% service charge on top of the listed price of the coffee.

Service was good, staff were nice and friendly. Cafe was well lit and cozy, with both an indoor and outdoor seating area.

Aka Kopi Peng Siew Dai. East meets West in this fusion coffee drink - with our all familiar traditional Robusta beans used in kopi, but brewed using an Espresso machine. The result is a smoother and creamier version of our local kopis, while retaining its usual roasted aroma, but less acidic. There was no condensed milk vs evaporated milk option, the uncle seemed to use both in our drink.

If you think the local kopi tends to be too strong and the western coffees tend not to hit you as hard, you might want to give this a try, as it might just hit the spot for you.

Really delicious and fragrant coffee at such an attractive price - it’s no wonder that the queues are long even on weekday afternoons. But I think it was worth the 20-30 minute wait, especially if you want some good coffee for half the price that you might need to pay at other coffee places.

Both drinks were more towards the sweet side so I would recommend getting a lower sugar level than you usually would. I got 0% for the Snow Peach Oolong but it was still quite sweet. The snow peach was really delicious but overpowered the oolong tea. I still really enjoyed it though.

The Hersheys Chocolate Milk Tea tastes exactly like it sounds - chocolate milk mixed with milk tea. The chocolate taste was more towards that of chocolate milk than of pure chocolate or cocoa itself. Great for chocolate milk cravings.

Note that the Burpple one for one deal applies to drinks in the same category - so in my case, I had to get both drinks from the Milk Tea Series. You can also pick from the Taiwan Tea Series but you’d have to get two in that category then.

Overall - pretty good a deal considering the 1-for-1, taste is not bad as well. You can still top up separately for toppings etc. The shop is just a short walk from AMK hub, which makes it very convenient.

Not your standard chai latte - the spices were strong in this one, would recommend for those who find the typical western chai lattes too milky or spices muted, because this cuppa was a kick of spices and aromas. I enjoyed it, it was a perfect wake-me-up (but without caffeine) to a slow morning for me.

Visited on a Saturday morning and the place was quite busy and bustling, fortunately we managed to get a seat for two. Service was standard and they served our drinks pretty quickly which was much appreciated!

Your typical latte but with the fragrance of lavender. Coffee was standard but the lavender made it quite unique - it was an interesting coming together of the aromas. The dried lavender bits can be quite strong so you may want to avoid actually chewing into them if you’re not a fan of strong aromas. I wouldn’t get this again but it was interesting to try.

Visited on an afternoon of a Public Holiday and the cafe was not too busy, had some seats available for my friend and I. Staff were friendly.

Quite fragrant tea, the cane roast didn’t really shine through as much as I hoped but it was still a pretty alright cup of milk tea.

We used the 1-for-1 Burpple Beyond deal so this drink was a lot more affordable - do take a look at the Beyond deal’s notes as the 1-for-1 only applies to specific drinks of Large size.

There’s a reasonably sized seating area outside of the bubble tea shop, which is great as most bbt shops are takeaway only.
