Che-Licious an interesting Bubble Tea alternative

Click to add a blog post for Che-licious on Zomato Chè-Licious offers an interesting alternative to Bubble Tea, generally involving more asian fruit ingredients; and is less artificially sweet. The multi-ingredient suggested combinations typically use coconut milk or coconut juice, which are good for you. On the napkin holders at the tables, the benefits of some of the ingredients such as BASIL SEEDS (which look like frog eggs!) and lychee are listed. Available ingredients include: Agar Jelly, Aloe Vera, Basil Seed, Coconut Milk, Coconut Water, Durian, Grass Jelly, Jackfruit, Longan, Lychee, Lychee Jelly, Mango Jelly, Mung Beans, Palm Seed, Pandan Jelly, Pom Pearls, Red Beans, Tapioca Pearls.

Price is higher than bubble tea (typically just over $6)  but considering the numerous and exotic ingredients, it's not bad. You can also build your own to get a cheaper drink with less ingredients. And when compared to non-alcoholic drinks at a restaurant weighing in at possibly $6-$7, this is way more interesting and delicious. Bahn Mi (vietnamese sub) and snacks and "icy bun" (bread with ice cream and a topping) is also available.

The décor is quite interesting, with a tropical-ish feel and curious apple lamps with 3 spotlights. Also worth a look at is the sink in the washroom, which looks like a leaf and has an interesting tap handle.
