I love tea houses, as they are called. Oolong Tea House in McKenzie Towne offers a huge selection of tea, and they let you enjoy your tea without any problems. This is due to the fact the location is large, so it can accommodate a lot of thirsty guests.
We didn’t actually try tea with tea leaves during our stop at Oolong Tea House. That particular day, i wanted to try their Chai Tea Latte, and just to compare and contrast with my favorite location’s Chai Tea.
I hate to say, but I do prefer my favorite location for the Chai Tea, but I will definitely be trying their teas that uses tea leaves, as that’s what they’re known for. I guess it was silly that I didn’t do that, but I didn’t crave anything else on that day.

Bubblemania is a place where I have been going to for many years now. They offer decent wings for a decent price. A new thing that is very handy, Bubblemania Cafe now accepts Visa & Mastercard! Before, they only took cash. Wing nights are now Mon to Thurs 2-7pm 28¢ Wings!
My favorite drink is either the pineapple or lychee green tea – COLD, with nothing in it. I’m actually not a fan of the “bubble” or the tapioca, as I tend to choke on it. Their drinks are quite good, but I must say — I think most of them are made from powder also! I’m a much greater fan of fresh fruit smoothies, but I risk the fruit not being in season.
We love ordering snacks from here, as they have amazing wings, they also have a ton of snacks and almost meal like food. We really haent’ tried anything that we didn’t like, we even enjoyed their Calamari!

Chinese food at it’s best! I like going here for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and all meals in between! For this particular instance, we went almost as a midnight snack, as we picked up people from the airport on a late flight. Their food is a little greasy, but it makes it look pretty and it tastes good too. It’s not overwhelmed by grease.
There is a wide array of options on the menu, so I’m sure you’ll find something for any appetite. I personally really love the shanghai noodles, but that’s just me and Chinese food. They do an excellent job at making it — but it’s a dish that is relatively simple.
Dinner at Sun Chiu Kee is really good, be sure to check out the dinner review too!
