The One Restaurant

Matcha Slush

Cheesecake

I’ve been seeing these pictures of gigantic slushes on Facebook everywhere and now I finally got to see it in real life! The One Restaurant is famous for their gigantic slushes, and I’m guessing their gigantic plates of food too… Although I never got to try their actual food, I saw the other tables’ with enormous portions of food! The Matcha Slush was huge! And I believe it was only $5.50, which is the price of normal sized bubble teas at other shops. So definitely a good deal! And the slush is so tall that it starts to fall when it melts, so the waitress brought another cup for us to take the top portion off for us. The matcha was actually surprisingly not too sweet which was good, and for some reason, it actually tasted even better when it was melted. It was almost like matcha milk or something and it was really good! As for the Cheesecake, it was a total disappointment as I believe it was just a store bought frozen cheesecake. The blueberries were still frozen, and the cake was just of bad quality. We were also quite unsatisfied with the service. We had come here for just the matcha slush to share, but we knew that most bubble tea restaurants probably would have a minimum charge. We looked around their menus and they didn’t have it written, so we just decided to order the slush for now. We totally understood that it is acceptable to have a minimum charge, but we weren’t sure if this was the case. Minutes later, the waitress came back and kept asking if we wanted to order more, but she never mentioned a minimum charge. What felt like 2 minutes more, she came back interrupting our conversation, finally stating that we had a minimum charge of one order per person. We told her we would take a look and order in a bit, but we were in deep conversation so thought we could wait for a bit. But she came back literally 2 minutes later to ask if we were ready again. Totally annoyed us as we were planning to get more drinks and food but she wouldn’t even give us time. So service is definitely not so great, but food was decent for the price and portions.

Bubble World

Tofu Dessert with Red Bean

Matcha Ice Cream Slush with Agar Jelly


Been to the Bubble World in Richmond a few times already actually, but never really took pictures in the past… Bubble World is usually really packed during after dinner hours, especially on weekends. I went on a random weekday in the afternoon though, so it was basically my table and another table. Quite empty so service was really quick. They’re similar to Pearl Castle, with a variety of food and drinks to choose from. I tried their Matcha Ice Cream Slush with Agar Jelly which was quite large in size to my surprise. The Matcha was not bad, but I wish it actually had ice cream in it. I didn’t really get the ice cream texture, and it was more like all slush and ice instead. It was my first time trying agar jelly, which I heard was pretty good. I wanted a change from the normal pearls and coconut jelly. To my surprise, it didn’t really have any flavour to it, but it had a very nice chewy texture – not as chewy as pearls or coconut jelly. Nice change for once, but I think I still prefer coconut jelly!

Green Tea Slush with Hershey’s Cookies and Cream, Oreo, and Mochi

Can’t believe it’s already Christmas! Merry Christmas everyone! So I was very lucky to be able to go to Bubble Queen after the shop closed to make my own bubble tea! Really exciting since I haven’t actually made real bubble tea other than homemade slushes with overcooked pearls…  First off we made some Chocolate Mochi Bubble Waffles. It was interesting to see how they actually put the mochi in! Seemed like you needed good timing. Next, I made a white Lindor chocolate with white Kit Kat slush topped with some green tea and taro mochi balls, a white Lindor chocolate, and a Bueno chocolate piece. Must say it was very delicious! Did not know they actually put so much chocolate into the slush, but surprisingly it doesn’t taste overly sweet. Probably tons of calories though! Everyone’s creative drinks all tasted really good! Definitely a must try if you haven’t gone to bubble queen before! They have the most creative drinks with a variety of chocolates to choose from, but if you like to stay on the safe side, they also have original drinks!

Bubble Queen

Mango Mochi Slush with Coconut Jelly

Strawberry Kit Kat Slush

If you live in Richmond, you know the list goes on for bubble tea spots, but this bubble tea store offers such unique drinks that it is a must try! Bubble Queen is located around the McKim Way and Garden City area. Some of the famous drinks they offer are the Ferrero Rocher Slush, Malteser Slush, Almond Roca Slush and the Lindt White Chocolate Slush! Yes. They turn all your favourite chocolate goodies into a bubble tea slush! They also pop a piece of your chocolate at the top of your drink to finish it off! They also have other bubble tea flavours if you like to stick with the originals and not go too fancy. Food is also available, such as their famous bubble waffles or what some people call “egg balls”. I have tried their Green Tea Mochi Bubble Waffle but unfortunately forgot to snap a picture. Guess I was too busy eating… Some other flavours are: Matcha Red Bean Bubble Waffle, Green Apple & Cinnamon Bubble Waffle, Strawberry & White-Choco-Chip Waffle, and Caramel Coffe & Toffee Chip. They also offer premium teas, chicken wings, thick toast and much more. Be sure to check it out, but I believe they close midnight latest! It’s also quite a small store, so perhaps take out? You will want to try all those different bubble teas for sure!
