In the last post, my girlfriend did a post of one restaurant while we were in Kamloops, BC. This wasn’t exactly a vacation, more like a business trip. Well, business for her and vacation for me! We were there for about a week and was it great to leave a big city and arrive at a smaller one. This city was just so beautiful, the view was amazing!
This was the view, overlooking from the hotel. It was just breathtaking being able to wake up and sleep to this majestic view.
Anyhow, we noticed many choy suey Chinese restaurants here in Kamloops but not too many modern Chinese/Taiwanese food and especially rare is Bubble Tea places here. In fact, I think there is only one near Thompson River University.
This caught my eye when I drove passed it for the first time. The vibrant colours on the window was just too hard to miss. Now, this place wasn’t a straight up Bubble Tea place. It was more than that when we walked up to the place.
Besides Bubble Tea, this place also had dim sum and other popular simple Chinese dishes, including rice and noodles.
When we went in after dinner, it was around 8pm. The place was pretty empty with only 1 table occupied and we were greeted by fans all over the place. It was pretty warm and stuffy inside, but with that many people in the restaurant, I guess it’s not very profitable to open the air con. The lady you see inside the kitchen is the owner and she’s the only one working, as her helper just quit the other day.
The chairs here reminded me of elementary or middle school times. It’s the exact same chairs at school. I wonder if that’s where it came from.
We got a drink to go as it was just way too hot in there. Also, we had no idea what the prices were as they are not listed on the menu. I would say quite the expensive drink for a place like Kamloops, but I can think why as they have no competition. We lucked out on the tapioca pearls, as they had none that day. So, we had coconut jelly as substitute instead. The drink itself was almost $5.50! However, it did taste pretty good. And the jelly was quite chewy.
So, if you ever stop by in Kamloops. They do serve BBT here, but expect to pay a premium for it! Especially, for a place that doesn’t look too appealing on the inside. We were too full to try their food. But, if the BBT is good. I’m sure the food shouldn’t be that far off.
