Hey everyone! This is Midori from MOSHI MOSHI NIPPON’s Editorial Department!
Tapioca is really booming in Japan! But it’s not just Japan… there’s a tapioca craze all over Asia! Tapioca drinks from Taiwan and many other countries are gradually arriving in Japan! Today I just had to try a drink from Taiwan’s incredibly famous shop Fukkadan, which is booming with popularity in Korea! No wonder there’s a Fukkadan located in Tokyo’s largest Korea Town Shin Okubo! I hurried over as fast as I could.
Fukkadan is located along Okubo-dori Street, which is one of the main streets of Shin Okubo. As you exit Shin Okubo station, take a right turn and after a short walk… you’re there!
It’s a small shop and you can’t drink in, so be careful to not miss it!
You just have to see the pan full of tapioca pearls!
There are five drinks on the menu ranging from brown sugar tapioca to matcha. I just had to go for the brown sugar tapioca milk tea. By looking around me, this does seem like a popular drink. You cannot customise the amount of ice or syrup in your drink.
The luxurious shop logo is the perfect place for a picture! There’s also something written in Hangul under the logo! How rare!
The gradation of colours of the brown sugar tapioca and the syrup is so cute! I chewed the tapioca balls to find that the brown sugar flavour completely penetrates through them. This sweet drink is very refreshing and delicious! You can really taste the milk of the milk tea. Overall, it’s quite sweet…like a brown sugar latte. If you’ve got a sweet tooth, this drink has you name written all over it!
While you’re strolling the streets of Shin Okubo, this tapioca milk tea is the perfect companion! It offers a unique flavour that you absolutely must try! How about comparing it to a Korean tapioca drink ??
