Three reasons I came to this place: the name, the creator (Ismaya) and the SPIKED BUBBLE TEA (of course).
Overall, Fook Yew sells Chinese and Chinese fusion food. Since I was in a hurry, I only had the chance to order stuff to go, so I didn’t get to try a lot.
The ordering process was pretty cute; the waiter gave me a menu that has some sort of wheel so you can pick the drink at random, or just pick one you would really like. One drink costs Rp 69,000, which is about $8.
All drinks are named based on the Chinese astrology and, I assume, created on the personalities of each of the astrology. I decided to try the Rat, which has contents of thai iced tea and brandy. I have no idea what those stuff have to do with a rat!
The concept was interesting, but for this particular drink, the taste was too sweet for my taste. I think it was the mix of the sweet tea itself AND the brandy. Too much! The grass jelly actually helped reduce the sweetness. At home, I also decided to add a little bit more water and ice so the taste was up to my liking. So far, I prefer the one my sister ordered (not spiked), the typical Taro Pearl Milk Tea.
Just in case you’re wondering, the non-alcoholic bubble teas cost Rp 39,000, which is about $5.
Btw, this one’s funny:
Fook Yew is located at Gandaria City.
