We drove by Xing Fu Tang a few times during the last few months and noticed this place seems to have a long line up all the time. They serve specialised bubble tea drinks that use a unique type of brown sugar as part of their recipe.
When we walked by Saturday afternoon recently, there was no line up so we thought it must be a good time to try it out. As soon as you walk in, you can smell the fragrant brown sugar cooking from the kitchen. You can also see a someone near the counter stirring the brown sugar and bubble pearls at the front.
We ordered a basic brown sugar pearl bubble milk tea. It was just over $5.
The taste was indeed very unique. We can tell right away it was not like other bubble tea shops mixing it up with cheap instant flavoured powder. The brown sugar made the bubble pearls very tasty. Although it was brown sugar, it was not overly sweet.
While waiting for your drink, you can test your fortune by picking up a stick and then seeing what number door you can open to get your lucky (or unlucky) fortune. In the picture, this is located on the left side where you see the red sticks.
