      There's probably a competition for that too, just maybe not relevant to chowhound. ; )

        Ha. I'm actually referring to a series of posts a couple of months ago. Very entertaining!

        .. in any case - I'll definitely have to go and pay him a visit. Thanks for posting this!

      I walked by there! He runs a very nondescript shop, but the fact that he serves milk tea was prominently displayed. I'll have to make a run up there again.

        I went to this coffee shop a couple of weeks ago specifically because I'd heard they won some awards for their milk tea. It didn't seem particularly special to us! In that area, I prefer the milk tea at Ming's Noodle Cafe or Kam Fai 38 as much or better.
