Bubble tea has definitely made its mark in Vancouver! I think it’s safe to say that we’ve been long over due for quality bubble teas (I’m sorry Bubble World, you don't make the cut). I’m super stoked to announce that Chatime has finally arrived. With two branches of bubble tea stores in Vancouver and one in Richmond – we finally get to taste the number one bubble tea brand in the world.

There are times when I would rather take photos of food than eat. I got carried away -  the lighting, decorations, and food were all too pretty. I had to capture every bit of this moment. Let's taco-bout it!

Banana Churros { ibarra chocolate sugar & dulce de leche }

Hmm I could do without the sauce, it tasted like condensed milk with caramel.

[Back to Front: Pork, Tuna]

2 for $10 Tacos: Tuna + Pork. 
Albacore Tuna Taco { soy, sesame, ginger, & wasabi mayo
I was very impressed with the generous slab of tuna that was in my taco, it was huge. The ginger on top meshes all the flavours together very nicely.

Pork Jowl Taco { cabbage, fried shallot, pineapple, & sriracha sauce }
Oh boy, I'm in love. The contrast between a soft taco and a crunchy filling is a nice balance compared to the tuna taco, which is "soft on soft." Superb. I wish it was a bit bigger.

[Left to Right/Top to Bottom: Churro, Burrito | Pork, Tuna + Yam, Tuna]

My friends got the 2for$10 combo and Bean and Cheese Burrito with sriracha sauce on the side.
Yam Tempura Taco { avocado, bonito flakes, & plum vinegar-soy }
Bean & Cheese Burrito { salsa fresca, cabbage, sour cream, & sriracha }

Chips & Salsa - pay extra $3 for guacamole

Yummy! I wish we didn't have to pay an extra three dollars for guac! Good but not as great as the ones that I had in Honduras.

Okay, Let's taco-bout the decor. I love cacti! My friends were making fun of me because I'm so amused by cacti. I eventually took a photo beside one of the cactus planters on the floor :P
