One thing I like the most about Vancouver is how diverse it is. There are many people with different cultures and backgrounds. But of course, when there are different cultures, there must be different kinds of food from all over the world. As a foodie, I’m lucky enough to live in the heart of downtown so I get to try different stuff every now and then.
I recommend one of my favorite snack/hangout places in downtown: Bubble World. They opened many different branches around Vancouver. The branch I like to go to is the one on Robson Street.
If you have never tried bubble tea, then you NEED to try it! It’s one of the most popular drinks in Asia. Bubble tea is a drink made with iced tea, sweetened milk or other flavorings, and usually with sweet black “pearls” made from tapioca. It’s a great drink for summer!
They serve so many different flavors of bubble tea, ranging from milk tea to different types of fruit tea. In the summer, they also have ice cream, slush, and shaved ice.
I recommend the fruit slush. One of my favorites is watermelon slush. Unlike some other bubble tea place, this place uses fresh fruits in the drink. So you can actually taste the real fruit.
Not only that, you can replace your pearls with all kinds of different jellies. So you can mix and match the drink and jellies. Try out different combinations and you might find the one that you like the best!
Also, this location just recently added a food menu! Now you can order popular night market food items. My favorite snack is the deep fried chicken and squid tentacles. Never tried squid tentacles before? Don’t worry. There are still a lot of other snacks you can choose from. They have beef noodles, fried rice, etc.
This place is also a great hangout place with your friends. There is a small arcade machine where you can play games on.
The reason why I like this place is because It tastes just like the ones they have back home. I’m really glad how I can still be having food from my home country even when I’m In Vancouver. And that is one reason why I love Vancouver!
