Help. We’re mere weeks into 2019, and the bubble tea craze doesn’t seem to be subsiding anytime soon. Next in line to arrive on our shores: The Alley.

Famous for its brown sugar pearl milk and swirling ombre concoctions, the popular Taiwanese brand recently set up social media pages for Singapore, declaring its debut here with its iconic deer logo stamped across our familiar Marina Bay Sands skyline. The location and actual launch date hasn’t been revealed, but this teaser a couple days ago was enough to pique interest among bubble tea addicts.

With outlets already across the region (South Korea, Japan, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Thailand, and the Philippines) and beyond (Los Angeles, Melbourne, Paris), The Alley obviously has its fans, who love it for its made-from-scratch pearls and drinks like assam black tea and white peach oolong. However, the menu tends to differ from country to country, so we’ll have to wait and see what creations the store brings to Singapore when it opens.
