Contactless Food Delivery is Available in Canada

The First Dessert food delivery by UberEats

To prevent further spread of COVID-19, many are working from home. Some may be struggling to get groceries, or just tired of cooking and washing dishes. Contactless food delivery is here to rescue. There are numerous food delivery services that are available in Vancouver, and many are proactively adopting new policies to alleviate customers’ concerns with COVID-19. You can support local businesses through these delivery services. In this blog post, I included the companies that I have used before and are offering contactless delivery, as well as promo codes for first-time users.

Continue Exploring on Spadina Avenue: Icha Tea (一茶間)

Spadina Avenue has many bubble tea shops, but there is also this cute independant cafe/tea bar that serves chinese tea, matcha, and tea-infused treats. Icha Tea (一茶間) is known as the heaven for tea lovers on Spadina Avenue. Once you step in, you can first order at the counter. There is a few seats where you can sit and wait for your takeout orders. Otherwise, you can continue to walk inside, passing through an authentic Chinese tea bar, and you can then find more seatings. It is spacious and quiet. There are many students working in the corner, as well as groups chilling around with drinks and desserts.

A Gem on Spadina Avenue: TRU Tea (初茶)

Walking down Spadina Avenue (aka Chinatown), we found a bubble tea shop that has a spacious interior and unique drinks. TRU Tea (初茶) is all about using high-quality ingredients to serve a redefined cup of bubble tea for customers. Compared to bubble tea shops in Vancouver, they are reasonably priced, given the fact that they don’t use any powder in the drinks. We enjoyed it so much, and it is funny that not a lot of Torontonians know about this place. We went back multiple times to try different drinks.

Milksha (迷客夏): a New Taiwanese Bubble Tea Chain on Robson Street

I have been going to a lot of bubble tea shops lately. At one point, I was visiting five different shops in one week, which was probably a crazy move. Anyway, Robson Street is slowly turning into a street of bubble tea. I’ve counted, including the ones that are opening soon, there are at least seven different shops, opening side by side. Milksha (迷客夏), a popular Taiwanese bubble tea chain recently opened its door on Robson Street, next to Ole Chicken & Tapas. This is the first location in North America, which I am excited to be one of the first customers to try them!

Baroness (小黑糖): A New Taiwanese BBT in Kitsilano

It is not surprising to see more bubble tea shops open in Vancouver. Baroness (小黑糖) is located in Kitsilano at the previous spot of In Tea. It specializes in brown sugar pearls, and the franchise owner created his very own secret recipe. They are also known for oat milk beverage, which is an excellent option for people who cannot have milk.
