Sometimes the craving is so intense, you're willing to lower your threshold from good to decent: maybe you'll take comfort in a bowl of ramen that uses rice noodles, or a plate of lo mein that comes with a pork schnitzel on top (more on that in a later post). I've taken part in many a bowl of noodle soup that was so oily, I couldn't even begin to reason why.
One thing, however, that can never be comprised is bubble tea. I only have one standard, which is that the boba be tapioca, not that weird popping bubble stuff. Otherwise, we have not come across a bubble tea we did not like.
Sure, sometimes we get less boba than we wanted, or the tapioca is a little under-cooked. But overall, bubble tea is a wonderful and comforting constant throughout our travels.
