Bubble tea in Midtown West- pregnancy craving urgency!

I am pregnant and having an awful craving for some bubble tea. My office is on 7th Ave and 53rd Street- any place in the area (willing to walk) where I can get some? All my searches have lead me nowhere!

  1. I feel for you! i'm pregnant and work in midtown too, but the only thing i've craved so far is kimchee! Sorry I can't help with a rec, but I'd love to know if there are any bubble tea places around as well. There used to be one on 47th and b'way that closed. I was sad to see it go.

    1. I've never been to this place, but it looks like they would have bubble tea. Upon checking out their menu on menupages, it looks like they do.

      Lili's 57
      200 W 57th St.

      Good luck!

      1. The chinese restaurant on 48th & 6th Ave called Hop Wing or Wing Hop (blue awning)makes bubble tea. It's a couple of stores down from Lenny's, right by Rockerfeller Ctr. Hope you find your fix!

        1. I know a place, it's on 9th ave and like I think 48th street. It's called Pearl on the Sushi, they have all sorts of bubble teas that you can get to go. hope this helps!!

            I'm a big bubble tea fan and I live less than a block from Pearl on the Sushi, and I can honestly say that I have never had worse bubble tea than I have there.

            I'm still looking for a good local place, sadly.



          2. Thanks to all! This will make my subway ride home much more bearable!
