What is Deerioca?

The Alley freshly handcrafts their trademark tapioca pearls known as “Deerioca.”

“Deerioca” is a word play on “tapioca” plus the brand’s logo “deer.”

The Alley makes their own Deerioca from scratch from making the dough to kneading and rolling the dough into small balls.

The brand takes pride in the texture and aroma of their pearls which each bite being unique and satisfying.

The Alley’s Deerioca are slow-cooked in a brown sugar “lava” for two hours. The brown sugar is made using house-made cane sugar.

Their signature Brown Sugar Deerioca drinks include Deerioca Fever (using fresh milk or soy milk) and Deerioca Matcha.
