Taiwanese bubble tea chain Xing Fu Tang opening at Century Square in Tampines on June 28, 2019

It will be at Century Square mall, in Tampines.

But Westies need not fret, as the chain will soon be opening three more outlets, including one at Takashimaya in Orchard.

First look at the outlet

The current Xing Fu Tang outlet is in the mall, near the drop-off point and opposite The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf.

For those who have not heard of this bubble tea chain, they are known for their stir-fried brown sugar pearls, which have a burnt, caramelised taste and a softer texture as compared to the usual pearls.

The pearls are also freshly made from scratch in store.

The founder, Edison Chen, demonstrated how the pearls are made:

Having said that, it does require more time for preparation, so be mentally prepared to queue.

Drinks available and their prices

Here’s a quick look at the menu, which ranges between S$4.90 to S$6.30 for drinks.

There is a good mix between milk-based drinks and a thirst-quenching tea series.

There is no customisation of sweetness level for drinks, except for the lightly roasted Oolong Tea.

There are also two types of ice cream ⁠— Fresh milk with brown sugar boba ice cream, or chocolate and strawberry dream mix. Both priced at S$4.50 each.
