Although I have visited the BBT’s shop newest location on Robson, I have not actually been to their original store in Richmond. Since the BBT shop is conveniently located under the Superstore in Richmond, my family and I decided to do go there for some snacks after grocery shopping.
BBT Shop Menu
The BBT Shop menu includes bubble tea drinks and innovative bubble waffles. Egg waffles are divided into three categories: standard ($3.75), deluxe ($4.75) and premium ($6-$9). The premium egg waffles are not for the faint of heart and include Red Velvet, Cheesecake Supreme, and Triple Decker to name a few.
The BBT Shop in Richmond is rather spacious with various dining tables. They also have some display cases with random toys and novelty items available for purchase. They even have one arcade machine for some good old gaming. I also liked that they have a very large washroom available which appeared to be mostly clean.
What I Tried
I decided to order some of the items which I thought looked interested based on the pictures presented. After I received the order, a few other customers in the store complimented me on my choices since the items looked so mouthwatering.
The first was a mango parfait ($8.95) which consisted of a mango bubble waffle, mango ice cream, mango drizzle and mango cheesecake pieces on the bottom. I was so impressed with all the mango flavours in this parfait. The mango ice cream flavor was just perfect.
The next was the “Super Matcha” ($8.50) which had a matcha bubble waffle, strawberries, whipped cream and red bean. Another very refreshing and delicious dessert which had a nice matcha flavor. The waffle was very tasty as well: crispy on the outside and airy on the inside.
I also ordered a taro milk tea with pearl drink ($4.50 + $0.50). I would have to say that I do prefer the taro milk tea from Chatime more since it has more taro flesh in it. The Chatime version also tastes more natural.
Overall Impression of the BBT Shop
I’m a definite fan of the bubble waffle desserts from the BBT shop. I would definitely recommend giving them a try: Rating: 4.5/5
