Author’s note: abject apologies, dear reader, for the long absence. Work pressures and getting married does take a while. But I’m back and hungry again. SO here goes!!!

I discovered that Chatime is now in Gurgaon. Chatime is a Taiwanese chain- famous for bubble tea. They have been in India for the last 9 months or so, but imagine my surprise and delight when I found an outlet right next door in Galleria!

For those of you who dont know what bubble tea is- its regular tea, you get to choose between green and black, and has tapioca (sabu dana) in it. The tapioca is boiled and forms rather large globules which are immensely chewable.

Beware though! There’s an inherent risk of the overzealous drinker to have a globule stuck in the throat. Exercising caution is advised. Those with an overactive gag reflex might have issues too! 😛 Also, you’re faced with a number of choices in terms of flavour, toppings, type of tea, size, etc. For me, I like to keep it simple. Original, with pearl milk- and you’re sorted.

In Gurgaon, the Chatime outlet is on the first floor of the Galleria market. Its a bit of a hunt, but I assure you- its worth it
