The places i usually go: L&G @ 41st and Granville: They use fresh fruits and the owners are really friendly. Drawback..is that they have extremely slow service. Try their Ice cream green tea bubble tea, they are the absolute best...so good that starbucks can\'t compare. Bubble Head on Granville street: Their service is pretty fast but they have long line ups, especially on weekdays. Their bubble tea are of decent price (usually $3.50 - $5 with the pearls and stuff). THeir milk tea is awesome, very flavorful and their selection is quite large. Twinkle @ alderbridge road (near the Honger area and the car wash area on Garden City): They have the absolute BEST egg pudding bubble tea..and you can choose a selection of small or large pearls. I like the environment, but the drinks do cost approximately $5.50 each. I know there is Pearl dragon or something like that on Oak street..the owners of L&G are actually from there, and since i am VIP (which mieans all drinks are $3 including pearls and stuff)..i prefer going there to save some $$$.
