    While I don't recommend the bubble tea, I love the Taiwanese food options, like Braised Pork Rice and Stewed Pork Belly. It's good for groups, and has a pretty quiet atmosphere.

    The fried snacks here run on the salty side, so ask for a glass of water to augment your bubble tea.

    Bubble tea is their main thing but they have other snacks. Had better bubble tea before, but location makes this a viable option

    This place is dirty as hell, blacks all along the bottom of the walls, and dirty ass chairs. Imagine how the kitchen looks. EEEK! Overrated bubble tea.

    One of NYC's original bubble tea venues. Variety of fruit bubble teas is great. However the boba is a bit soggy tasting.
