Cafe de Pearl - Bubble tea on Bold Street, Liverpool

Evening all

Just wondered if anyone has eaten ( or drunk ) at this place as I am going for a Bubble tea with friends this weekend, and wondered if the food ( or indeed the tea ! ) was any good ?

Thanks for any help or insight you can give.

  1. Well, apologies for the delay, but had lunch there yesterday. Had a lovely watermelon bubble tea. It comes with tapioca and I added extra lychee balls. Lush.

    It has an eclectic menu of Hong Kong classics like spaghetti bolognese, Chinese standards, and then a Szechuan menu which you have to ask for, and off which I had gargantuan plates at six quid a pop of dry fried green beans with pork, and hot and numbing fish. Both lovely. Will be back!

      Ooh - will have to check that out. I've always walked past thinking it looked like somewhere not worth going to - but decent Szechuan sounds like something which needs further investigation.

        Yep, worth it. A lady next to me was having the fiery crab, which looked finger lickin' good. Gargantuan portion, as were my dishes, so best to go with reinforcements I think.
