Updated on 20190407 : Included Gong Cha’s Brown Sugar Fresh Milk with Pearl

Due to recent wave of brown sugar bubble tea, I guess it is timely to list down what I have tried in past few weeks…

Do follow my Instagram for more updates on latest brown sugar bubble tea I have tried and drop a comment or two on outlets you think I should visit.

Gong Cha

Gong Cha Brown Sugar Fresh Milk with Pearl

Gong Cha was slightly late to the game but nonetheless, they should be taken seriously with their take – Brown Sugar Fresh Milk with Pearl.

The Alley

The Alley is no stranger when comes to brown sugar milk tea. Apart from the best seller – Deerioca Brown Sugar series, their Royal No. 9 Milk Tea is pretty good too.

Tiger Sugar 马来西亚老虎堂

Tiger Sugar has finally made their presence count in Malaysia on January 2019. Their Brown Sugar Pearl+ Boba with Cream Mousse is thicc and sinful due to the addition of cream mousse. The combination of pearl and boba adds interesting texture to the drink.

Fun fact : Did you know that pearls and boba are the same? They are just different in size.

OneZo 丸作

OneZo’s version of brown sugar bubble tea – Dirty Milk Tea is somewhat similar The Alley’s Deerioca series. Theirs lean towards lighter side in terms of flavour and sweetness as we are able to customise the sugar level. Nonetheless, their boba have good chew to it and they are one of the cheapest amongst others in the list here.

SoyLab

If fresh milk or milk tea is not your thing, SoyLab’s version might fit right up your alley as their’s consists of black bean soya as base.

Royaltea 皇 茶

Royaltea’s Brown Sugar Pear Fresh Milk is somewhat alright – palatable but their portion is comparable, if not bigger than others.

KOI Thé

KOI Thé’s is probably the most expensive of the lot. At RM15 (including pearls), it is somewhat underwhelming in terms of taste, for me at least. However, as one says, taste is personal preference and so… do try out and let me know what you think!

23 December 2015 · Comments Off on In Bali – Jamie’s Italian Kuta Beach · Categories: Food and Beverages, Travel

It has been close to a year since my last post about food… or in fact, anything else. So, I guess it is fitting to post at least something before year 2015 ends, just to keep this space alive for a little longer.

Jamie's Italian Kuta Beach, Bali

We stumbled upon this place when we were searching for some nice restaurant to dine during our trip in Bali recently – just to celebrate some sort.

As the name says it all, it is by the renowned British chef although some reviews I read online said otherwise. As matter of fact, it is rather surprising to find this in Bali, Indonesia. Nonetheless, with all the surprising factors, it did not stop us from having a good time at this cosy place on one rainy afternoon.

The service was great as the wait staffs were attentive, helpful and accommodating. The ambiance was cosy and quiet as there were not many customers during our visit. The dining area split into three parts; patio, indoor and first floor. We were seated at upper level.

The menu was somewhat extensive yet keeping it simple with all key mains in it. Anti-pasta, appetisers, pasta, pizza and mains have at least three choices to choose from respectively.

Bintang Beer in Bali

We were famished as it was closed to 3PM when we were looking at the menu. And hence, we started off with an appetiser – crispy calamari… and cold Bintang beer.

Crispy Calamari by Jamie's Italian Kuta Beach, Bali

The calamari was slightly over seasoned / salty but it went well with the lemony aioli. The batter was light and crispy while the thinly sliced garlic bits were addictive.

Tagliatelle Bolognese by Jamie's Italian Kuta Beach, Bali

Italian Meatball Pizza by Jamie's Italian Kuta Beach, Bali

The Tagliatelle Bolognese was good – the sauce was rich, meaty tomato-based topped with shaved parmesan. Although the crust of Italian Meatball pizza was nice and thin, the pizza itself could be better though as the meatball was rather tiny.

Rasberry Pavlova by Jamie's Italian Kuta Beach, Bali

For dessert, the Raspberry Pavlova was good as it was not overly sweet yet keeping the texture light and soft. It went well with the honey crumbles and raspberries.

I did not keep / have the breakdown of each dish but the overall meal came to about Rp750,000. I remember it clearly because it was rather pricey, I have to admit and it was most expensive meal we had in Bali. Nonetheless, the meal was good so was the ambiance and experience.
