This is going to be a super brief food blog entry.
Green Grotto Tea Room is located near Steeles and Warden in Markham (also where a T&T Supermarket resides). It’s a casual space for youngsters to gather and chat over drinks. I love how they serve a bowl of free popcorn that you can snack on with your drink. They serve a wide selection of hot drinks and cold drinks (including bubble tea), snacks, and dessert. They also host a big library of Asian magazines and free wifi (that unfortunately isn’t very reliable as we found out on this visit).
On this night, two friends and I met up for a brief meeting. I ordered the refreshing passion fruit drink that had actual passion fruit pieces in it. It was very good. I tried Grace’s bubble tea and I really liked how “authentic” it tasted. The bubbles (tapioca) were deliciously chewy and the milk tea was perfectly done!
I also ordered a side of chicken nuggets. To my disappointment, they were literally chicken nuggets that came frozen from a box; the ones that you buy from the supermarket. They weren’t the fresh ones at all and neither crispy or crunchy. I found it amusing that they served Asian sweet chili sauce with it for dipping. Nevertheless, this place is great for drinks and I highly recommend coming here with friends. This wasn’t my first time visiting and I’m sure I’ll pop by in the future as well. 🙂
