Boba Tea in Detroit??

Moving to the Detroit area in May and am hoping to find a place to get my boba tea fix. Any suggestions?

    1. Rexy's Bangkok Cuisine in Royal Oak, 13 Mile and Woodward

      What part of the area will you be in?

        Probably closer to Troy or Royal Oak. By the way--how's the food at Rexy's?

            Rexy's is my thai of choice for Curry dishes,not crazy about their Kow Pads, Pad thai, or their brown sauces (PAD) but their GANG is Good.

            Bangkok Bistro in Troy at Maple (we call it Walmart Thai, it is in parking lot in front of the Evil Empire). Solid GANG and PAD dishes. They are kind enough to offer cucumber salad instead of Hot and Sour for our non meat eating friends, So we end up there quite a bit. Gang Good, Pad good, Kow pad reliable and pad thai passable. They also have Pra Ram Long Soong which is peanut Butter Sauce curry dish which is very good. Almost as good as an indonesian peanut sauce (which is impossible to find outside my mom's kitchen or the Netherlands these days).

            Bangkok Silver Bowl Clawson: Gang Not Good, Pd good, Thai Holy Basil Great.

            All serve Bubble tea if I remember right.

            We got one at Thang Long yesterday, on John R at around 11 1/2 mile rd. They will put bubbles in any of their blended fruit drinks, like the avocado. Please post if you find any more locations, esp. further north.
