Saint's Alp Teahouse

Mabel and I got bubble tea at Saint's Alp Teahouse after seeing The Darjeeling Limited.

They have good bubble tea. Mabel got taro with milk and I got green tea with milk, both with tapioca. They have these mechanical shakers, so everything was frothy and mixed well.

Service is pretty bad, but from negligence not malevolence. They forgot to bring us an order of toast, but seemed genuinely sorry when they figured it out as we paid the bill.

Anyway, the taro tea was much better than the one we got the previous weekend at an Egg Custard King Cafe in Chinatown. The one at Egg Custard King tasted like cereal milk which might not be a bad thing, but it wasn't quite what Mabel was looking for. The one at Saint's Alp tasted good, but not in a cereal milk kind of way.
