Bubble tea fans, your fight against diabetes will once again be put on hold.

Famed Taiwanese bubble tea chain, The Alley, is coming to Singapore.

Established in Taiwan in 2013, it’s one of the bubble tea chains (which included the wildly popular Tiger Sugar) that started the brown sugar milk tea war in Hong Kong.

Globally, it’s popular enough to have outlets in Canada, US, France, Korea, Japan, China, Hong Kong, Thailand, the Philippines, Australia and New Zealand.

They’ve since made an announcement that the brand will be making its way to the little red dot, with social media pages set up for the Singapore branch.

What to expect

While little is known about what will be made available in Singapore when the shop is open for business here, chances are that Singaporeans will get a taste of their signature Deerioca series.

Deerioca is their label for their in-house tapioca pearls which they make from scratch, hand-kneading the dough for better texture, taste and aroma of the pearls.

Their drinks, according to the website, are also made with their own sugar cane syrup, boiling them in house to achieve the light sweetness in their drinks without it getting too cloyingly sweet.

Served in cups with with round bases, they make for Insta-worthy photos.

Another must-try from the bubble tea chain would be their Aurora series of drinks, which are pretty bottled beverages in hues of purple, blue, pink and yellow.
