Iโ€™m a HUGE FTR fan , but the ๐™๐™๐™ ๐™Š๐™ง๐™ž๐™œ๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™–๐™ก ๐™ˆ๐™ž๐™ก๐™  ๐™๐™š๐™– ๐™ฌ๐™ž๐™ฉ๐™ ๐˜ฝ๐™ค๐™—๐™– (~$6) for 250ml of milk tea seemed abiiiit, well, overpriced. Iโ€™ve seen reviews of their milk tea being weak, but mine had a strong tea taste, so perhaps there was some inconsistency. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

And hereโ€™s the answer to the impt qn: Howโ€™s the Boba? Itโ€™s... well.... edible. Similar to the tea, there were consistency issues, some pearls were chewy and some were hard. ๐Ÿฅค๐Ÿฅ›

Iโ€™ve had their ๐™๐™ค๐™—๐™ค๐™Š๐™ฃ๐™š (~$7.50 with pearls) before and was treated to a smooth and milky vanilla solution. Not quite sure if it went with Boba but itโ€™s one of the better coffees around. ๐Ÿฅณ

The ๐˜พ๐™๐™ž๐™˜๐™ ๐™š๐™ฃ ๐˜พ๐™ช๐™ฉ๐™ก๐™š๐™ฉ ๐™‹๐™–๐™จ๐™ฉ๐™– (~$17) was rather one dimensional pasta, with a thin and weak bodied tomato base. Average cafe food, nothing to marvel about.

Ig @goodfomood

If you ever feel mediocre, just remember that the ๐™Ž๐™–๐™ก๐™ข๐™ค๐™ฃ ๐™ˆ๐™–๐™™๐™ฃ๐™š๐™จ๐™จ(~$19) exists. To be fair, the salmon portion is HUGE, and itโ€™s definitely a bang for your buck.
But itโ€™s also inconsistent: moist at times, drier than the Sahara desert at others.
That being said, the roasted veggies that came with it were pretty tasty ๐Ÿ˜›

My oh my was this downright sinful. 1000 calories, but no regrets. The Peanut Butter Pancake (~$1.20) was coated fully with sloppy peanut butter, then more peanut crumbly bits.

TLDR: edges were crispy thin, MJK texture was so!!! damn!!! chewy!!! and not soggy ๐Ÿฅณ If youโ€™ve had bad MJK before then itโ€™s time fr this I swEAR๐Ÿคช

For $7 more, you get the ๐™‚๐™ค๐™ช๐™ง๐™ข๐™š๐™ฉ ๐™๐™ž๐™—๐™š๐™ฎ๐™š ๐™Ž๐™ฉ๐™š๐™–๐™  ๐™Ž๐™–๐™ฃ๐™™๐™ฌ๐™ž๐™˜๐™ (~$18.90), which was grilled to a nice medium doneness. The thiccc milk loaves soaked up the oil wellโ€” a beautiful yummy mess, to say the least. ๐Ÿฅช

OK THIS IS A STEAL. Donโ€™t say I didnโ€™t tell ya. For a crispy chOnky boi, get the ๐™Š๐™ง๐™ž๐™œ๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™–๐™ก ๐™’๐™–๐™œ๐™ฎ๐™ช ๐™‹๐™–๐™ฉ๐™ฉ๐™ฎ ๐™†๐™–๐™ฉ๐™จ๐™ช ๐™Ž๐™–๐™ฃ๐™™๐™ฌ๐™ž๐™˜๐™ (~$11.90). Itโ€™s crispy and fried to a t on the outside, covered with a salty-sour tonkatsu sauce, and sandwiched in some mean fluffy Hokkaido bread. And also 12 bux, cโ€™mon.๐Ÿฅฉ

One word: Overwhelming. Thatโ€™s exactly what I felt about the ๐™‹๐™–๐™ฃ๐™˜๐™–๐™ ๐™š. ๐˜ฝ๐™–๐™˜๐™ค๐™ฃ. ๐™๐™ก๐™ž๐™œ๐™๐™ฉ. ๐™ˆ๐™–๐™œ๐™ž๐™˜. (~$23)

I do love me a good sweet and savoury balance, but here itโ€™s confusing, extra, even. Maple infused pancakes were dense and sweet, and it paired awkwardly with the onion jam and barbecued butter. ๐Ÿฅž
-
Dangling aesthetically from a pole (?) were three types of bacon: paprika, bacon back and maple glazed. I wasnโ€™t a fan of the paprika one especially, since it clashes the already messy flavours even more.๐Ÿฅ“
-
The components are good, but ON THEIR OWN. The pancakes wouldโ€™ve been good with ice cream and butter, the bacon wouldโ€™ve been good with fluffy hotcakes. Throw them together and itโ€™s a recipe for tastebud disaster. โ˜น๏ธ

Truly unbeatable value for ramen. Buta Kinโ€™s ๐™Š๐™ง๐™ž๐™œ๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™–๐™ก ๐™๐™ค๐™ฃ๐™ ๐™–๐™ฉ๐™จ๐™ช ๐™๐™–๐™ข๐™š๐™ฃ (~$7.90) isnโ€™t your usual heavy-pork broth style, opting for a lighter, smoother (cleaner?) base.
-
I didnโ€™t have high expectations considering how I just happened to walk past this, but the char on the cha shu was well done, emphasising the lean meat while contrasting the fatty bits. ๐Ÿœ๐Ÿœ
-
Equally as impressive was the ramen egg, though not perfect, the yolk was gooey through ๐Ÿฅบ
-
Itโ€™s not the best esp the broth, but at this price point, definitely worth checking out.

Actually, there is a way to make pizza even more sinful, like in the case of ๐™‹๐™ž๐™ฏ๐™ฏ๐™– ๐™๐™ง๐™ž๐™š๐™จ (~$14). The cheese clumped too quickly and they honestly COULD be more generous with the pepperoni, but this was as pizza-flavoured as they could make it ๐Ÿ•๐ŸŸ

๐™Š๐™ง๐™ž๐™œ๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™–๐™ก ๐™‹๐™ค๐™ ๐™š ๐˜ฝ๐™ค๐™ฌ๐™ก (~$17) left me with mixed feelings. The addition of candied cashews was genius โ€” sweet and salty against the creamy guacamole and cold sashimi, but the salmon wasnโ€™t the freshest to be frank. Not sure if this poke bowl justified the price tag ๐Ÿค”

If you thought your studying content is dry, the ๐˜ฝ๐™š๐™š๐™› ๐™Ž๐™๐™ค๐™ง๐™ฉ๐™ง๐™ž๐™—๐™จ ๐™Ž๐™–๐™ฃ๐™™๐™ฌ๐™ž๐™˜๐™ (~$16) is drier. I have no idea how a sandwich can be dry even with melted cheese, but youโ€™d be surprised.
