Tired of drinking the same old bubble milk tea? Since the beginning of the year, there has been an ongoing trend about turning boba pearls into edible pastries. That includes everything from pizza and waffles to souffle and yes… cake topped with chewy boba pearls. Here are 7 Places To Enjoy Bubble Tea Pearl Cakes in Klang Valley.
1) Thurs2.0 @ Taman Miharja, Cheras
Behind the Instagram-worthy, bright-red vending machine-like door lies a minimalist cafe serving delicious burnt cheesecakes, caffeinated beverages and fresh peach juice. But the real deal is their signature “French Earl Grey Bubble Milk Tea Cake” — a must-try for every pearl milk tea lover. The chiffon cake is baked fresh on a daily basis using T2 Tea’s French earl grey topped with handmade boba pearls and creamy sea salt cheese milk foam. It is available in three different sizes including 4 inches (RM15), 5 inches (RM25) and 7 inches (RM35).
2) Sweeto @ Kuchai Lama, KL
Located in the popular neighbourhood of Kuchai Entrepreneurs Park, Sweeto is a fusion cafe that specialises mainly in dessert such as cakes, mille crepe and of course… boba pearl cakes. They come in four different flavours including milk tea, strawberry, matcha and even Hershey’s chocolate.
3) TinyBaker In PINK @ Kota Damansara, PJ
If you are expecting a wide range of food varieties, you won’t find them here in TinyBaker in PINK. Instead, they serve mainly drinks as well as their signature “Bubble Earl Grey Chiffon Cake”. You can choose to enjoy it in the cafe or order your takeaway via WhatsApp at 010-565 7152. Keep in mind the cafe closes every Wednesday.
4) Littlepeople @ Jalan Klang Lama, KL
Comfort food is what they do best, with handmade pasta being their signature meal. But they also serve delectable desserts such as burnt cheesecake, salted caramel cookie crumble and yam cake. Boba lovers can also look forward to their “Earl Grey Snow Bubble Milk Tea Cake”, which comes with a generous topping of freshly-made boba pearls. Best paired with their handcrafted coffee.
5) The Platform Cafe @ Cheras Leisure Mall, KL
This fusion cafe serves a wide array of Chinese, Western and Japanese cuisine at the comfort of a spacious dining setup. Some of their menu choices include “Spaghetti Aglio Olio with Soft Shell Crab”, “King Prawn with Tomato Rice” and even a deli-style concept where you get to pick favourite meat of your choice (e.g. lamb rack, pork belly, sirloin) and have them cooked on the spot. Don’t forget to leave some room for dessert, namely their irresistible “Black Pearl Cheesecake” — a cheesecake variation topped with thick syrup and heaps of boba pearl goodness.
6) Tea Cottage @ Taman Bukit Mewah, Kajang
Located in Kajang, this tiny tea cafe specialises in milk tea varieties including “Dirty Milk Tea”, homemade milk tea jam and even bubble milk tea waffles. Not into waffles? Lucky for you they serve cakes as well such as cheesecakes and pearl milk tea chiffon cake with sweet osmanthus and large boba pearls.
7) Cemento Cafe & Bistro @ Desk ParkCity, KL
This elegant cafe at Plaza Arkadia definitely knows a thing or two about offering various cake varieties. This includes the likes of “Mango Cheese Cake”, “Earl Grey & Matcha Blueberry Cake” and “White Forest Cake”. They also serve mini boba cake as well including their signature “Pearl Of Summer”, which is an Earl Grey-flavoured cake topped with a handful of boba pearls and a side serving of strawberry slices.
Earlier in March this year, they have recently announced on their Facebook page about their upcoming “Milk Tea Lava with Pearl”.
