Bubble World

Hokandara Rd, Sri Jayawardenepura Kotte

A tiny bubble tea joint in Kotte.

Once upon a time, Colombo was all hyped up about bubble tea, and for a very good reason. A delicious, fun range of drinks that's refreshing as hell, this stuff is also quite addictive. There was a time at YAMU that one of us would run on bubble tea errands almost every day.
Now the hype has gone down, but still, we were quite excited to drop by this almost new bubble tea joint - Bubble World. They are a neighbour to the all-new Sushi Kai.

The Bubble Tea

Their menu features a range of bubble frappes, slushies, fruity and milk-based bubble teas. Some of them have tea in them, while the rest don't.

The Lychee & Strawberry Black Tea (Rs. 450) was too sweet for our liking. The syrupy flavours of the said fruits were quite dominating, which overpowered the tea counterpart of the drink.

As for the Milkmaid Tea (Rs. 420), it was milky, and had a better flavour in comparison, but tasted quite ordinary. It didn't have the beloved Milkmaid flavour that we were so excited for. 

This Snickers Bubble Frappe (Rs. 720) was our saving grace. Peanutty, chocolaty and with a dash of caramel, and tapioca pearls lying at the bottom, it was quite rich in flavour, had a creamy texture and just the right consistency. 


Bubble World serves cheesecake jars too, and we opted for the Blueberry Cheesecake, priced at Rs. 690. Sweet with a tinge of sourness, it was all right. We'd still prefer Sugarcube's legendary cheesecake though. 

Ambience & Service

It's a tiny place. Accommodating four people here is a task itself. Nonetheless, it's air-conditioned, and from what we observed, they get a lot of takeaway and delivery orders. 

The guy behind the counter was responsible for taking our orders, preparing them, and accepting payments. He was quite quick in all of them.


While Bubble World has room for improvement, it's an all right option for bubble tea, especially if you're in the area.
