They also have an vast assortment of teas including brewed and milk teas with flavors of black, green and oolong. You can choose to have your drink served hot or cold with ice.
During my visit, I ordered a fried chicken wrap. The item is a part of the little-eats section and comes in bite-sized pieces of chicken and vegetables. To drink, I had the Taiwan pouchong milk tea served hot with oolong. This was the perfect choice to warm me up on a cold afternoon.
