A brand new wave of Bubble milk tea is hitting into Klang valley for year 2019. With a new term I learn known as the Boba Tea trend. The first wave was about 10 years ago, where Chatime make a big hit (now known as Tealive our own homegrown Bubble tea brand). Most of these outlet have their own signature and own style. I called it a new innovation of flavour especially brown sugar milk base. Well, here are the current hype of 3 New Taiwan Famous Bubble Milk Tea in KL 2019. (it was suppose to be 5 as 2 more Taiwan bubble milk tea is opening in Kepong) Or currently consider as the Top 3 New bubble milk tea brand that every one is talking about.
I believe the no.1 new brand in many people’s heart is:
No.1 The Alley 鹿角巷
This is the first brand that landed in KL for our new boba trend. When they landed, all Milktea lovers just went besserk. You see heaps of people crazily lining up their SS15 outlet and since that they have expended quite fast around Klang Valley and slowly to other states.
I like both their Royal No.9 Milk Tea @ RM 9.80 and their Brown Sugar Deerioca Milk Tea @ RM 13.80 (if I remember correctly). Their pearl is really good. Chewy and soft. Quite different kind of texture that I have tried.
I have tried their SS15, SS2 and Kepong outlet. Skip their SS2 outlet is by far the worst, flat and tasteless. Kepong and SS15 quite consistent.
The Alley 鹿角巷
47, Jalan Rimbunan Raya 1,
Laman Rimbunan, 52100 Kuala Lumpur
No.2. TigerSugar MY 马来西亚老虎堂

Second brand that landed in ourshore not too long after The Alley is Tigar Sugar. Tigar Sugar is making a huge wave in Taiwan itself and Hong Kong.
I have yet to try this out as the queue in Sunway Pyramid is also 30-45 mins. Shall skip till they have more outlets. Apparently, my friends said it is quite disappointing. Only to try if there is less queue.
Their latest outlet is in Pavilion, located at Pavilion Elite. Same row as TeaLive
LG1, Jalan PJS 11/15,
Bandar Sunway, 47500 Petaling Jaya, Selangor
(believe it is infront of Auntie Anne – Old wing)
Operating Hours: 10am – 10pm
No.3 Xing Fu Tang Malaysia 馬來西亞幸福堂

Fresh from Taiwan as they just open its door about 3 weeks ago in SS 15 as their first outlet in Malaysia and making a huge bee line. Rest assure that the queue will take you about 30 mins – 45 mins to get a cup of your boba. Seen my friend checking out the outlet and it seems they do have little gimmick. Some of my friend mention to me that their franchise cost about RM 300k-500k per outlet. According to my friend that had join on the queue, she said that it is nothing special and too sweet. What will be your verdict?
Xing Fu Tang @ ss15
88G, Jalan SS 15/4,
47500 Subang Jaya, Selangor
(same row as The Alley SS15 or few doors away from Outdark ss15)
