Fat Straw in Nashville :(

Today I tried Fat Straw bubble tea for the first time. They just opened this month and I have been waiting, driving by on occasion to see when they would open. And I am sad to say it was barely what I would call drinkable.

Are there any other bubble tea shops in the Nashville area? I have been to a few places that it might have been on the menu but so far Fat Straw is the only place I have found.

  1. No, but if you find any please let us know. Please!

    1. The bubble tea at Parco Cafe (downtown) is very good. Also, there is a small Asian market near the K&S Grocery on Charlotte in the strip mall that runs perpendicular to Miss Saigon that sells bubble tea. I've never tried it, though.

        Do you mean that the market sells bubble tea, or sells the fixings?

          the place is called kien giang. i've had the bubble tea there and i thought it was a lot better. great consistency and flavor. bit cheaper too

        2. I was hoping to make a trip to Fat Straw this weekend or next, so I'm sorry to hear the news. My bubble tea experience is so limited, but I like the chai soy bubble tea on the weekend dimsum buffet at Golden Coast.
