 Chatime Markham

What is so special about Chatime?! According to Chatime, they are the #1 Bubble Tea in the World with over 800 stores worldwide.

I kept seeing people posting about the BEST bubble tea from Chatime and that the wait is about 30 mins or longer. How is it ever possible for a 30 min wait for BUBBLE TEA?? Many people on Facebook were ranting about how good Chatime is and I just had to try it myself since I get bubble tea at least twice a week.

Currently in Ontario, they have 3 locations: 1) downtown by Eaton Centre on Bay and Dundas, 2) Midtown on Yonge and Finch, and 3) in Markham on Warden and Steeles. They do have a 4th one coming soon to Downtown Markham.

For my opinion on Chatime, read my blog for my thoughts and see if it's worth the wait. You never know, you might love it more than me!!

Marathon Donuts & Coffee Shop

I went to try the award winning Hong Kong Style Milk Tea in Scarborough with my parents. Harvey Lin from Toronto and co-owner of Marathon Donuts & Coffee Shop won the title of “Milk Tea King” at the annual International Milk Tea Competition that was held in Hong Kong. 

If you want to try it, but don't want to drive to Scarborough, they opened one in Richmond Hill on East Beaver Creek.

For my opinion on Marathon Donuts & Coffee Shop, read my blog for my thoughts and see if you REALLY think they deserve the title of "Milk Tea King."

 Jacobs & Co. Steakhouse

I went to Jacobs & Co. Steakhouse for a friend's birthday. I love steak and I've been to many steahouses in Toronto. By far Jacobs & Co Steakhouse is the best steak in Toronto. They have a huge variety of steaks from an aged 38 days ribeye to a 48 days striploin, from Canadian prime steaks to Australian Wagyu steaks. Regardless of the type of steak you get, I'm sure you'll love it!! If you like steaks and you think Ruth Chris Steakhouse, Terras, The Keg, etc. are really good then you are missing out!!

I would higly recommend Jacobs if you love steaks and don't mind spending over $100 per person. I would definitely go back!!

For my opinion on Jacobs & Co. Steakhouse, read my blog for my thoughts and see if you think it's worth the money. I think it's worth it!!

Chatime Markham at Commerce Gate

Finally a Chatime closer to work!! The Markham location at Commerce Gate opened on Valentine's Day. Maybe because they are new still, they are not as busy as the one on Warden and Steeles. Not like I'm complaining since I don't like the long wait.

The only difference with this Chatime is that it's bigger so you can sit there like other bubble tea shops and they sell donuts and cupcakes. Not sure if the donuts and cupcakes are good since I don't usually like to try food that they don't specialize in. For example, I would never try a hot dog at a Dairy Queen.

Overall, parking is horrible during lunch time on a weekday, but the plus side is that they don't have a huge line up.

 Fishman Lobster Clubhouse Restaurant

For someone who doesn't like seafood, I sure loved the food besides from not eating what they specialize in. The place was packed and they are fully booked every single night. You will definitely need to reserve a table a head of time. I would say at least 1-2 weeks in advance. Especially if you are planning a special event, then I suggest you book as soon as you can. Don't wait last minute.

If you LOVE seafood and you think Red Lobster is good and don't mind spending a lot of money, then this is the place to go. Even though I don't eat seafood, I will definitely come back.

For my opinion on Fishman Lobster Clubhouse Restaurant, read my blog for my thoughts and see if you think it's worth the money. I think it's worth it!!

 Crystal Buffet

If you love buffets for the vast variety of food to choose from, this is definitely not the place for you. I love buffets for the fact that I can eat whatever I want and try a little of everything. Crystal Buffet is located on Warden Ave and Hwy 401 where China Buffet used to be.

I must say this place is ONLY for you if you are looking for a buffet and CHEAP!!! If you want something cheap and not care for the variety of food and quality, then this may be the place for you.

For my opinion on Crystal Buffet, read my blog for my thoughts and see if you think it's worth the money and your time.

 Chatime Pacific Mall

They finally opened one at Pacific Mall on June 13, 2014. They are located at unit B70 which is closer to the Steeles entrance.

The pros of having a Chatime at Pacific Mall are: 1) line is shorter than the Chatime at Warden and Steeles, 2) if the line happens to be long, you can go to the other many bubble tea shops there, 3) can shop around while having your bubble tea, and 4) plenty of parking if it's not a statutory holiday.

If you're in dire need of having Chatime and you don't want to wait in line or you're in the area, go to Pacific Mall.
