When the closure of standalone bubble tea stalls was announced yesterday afternoon, BBT lovers across the country braced themselves for the next few boba-free weeks. Besides resorting to DIY-ing your own BBT, there are still ways to get your sugary fix during this stay-home period. We’ve collated a list of eateries providing bubble tea delivery that will remain open during the Circuit Breaker.
Bubble tea shops have been removed from the list of essential services. We still do suspect that it’s part of Singapore Government’s move to fight diabetes. If you are unaware, Singapore is at war with diabetes. This is a very tough war to fight as we have seen Singaporeans queuing up long lines during Circuit Breaker just to get their last-minute bubble tea fix.
The Ultimate Bubble Tea List
1. I love taimei 我愛台妹
This Taiwanese stall is set to be a big earner as it’s one of the few shops which serve hot food such as fried chicken and street snacks. This gives them the technical approval to remain open during the extended circuit breaker. However, you will need to purchase a food item to get access to bubble tea.
Bestseller: 1988 Milk Tea ($4.90)
This stall sells some of the most surprisingly interesting milk tea creations. They do not offer pearls but in times of need such as Circuit Breaker, why would you mind? It may be a little expensive compared to other shops but we think it’s well worth it for their fragrant milk tea.
They have free islandwide delivery for a minimum order of three cups, and they make their deliveries from 4pm to 7pm daily.
Bestseller: Earl Grey Milk Tea ($6)
3. Monga Singapore
Fried chicken is probably the thing that you associate with this joint. They offer fried snacks with bubble teas. However, only the outlet at SingPost offers bubble teas. You can choose from a selection of oolong, matcha and fruit teas.
Free islandwide delivery for orders above $30.
Bestseller: Grapefruit Green Tea ($4.50)

4. Lu Ding Ji
If you liked Taiwanese food, this shop is going to give you quite a good combination with their lu rou fan bowls and classic dishes. You get to add a bubble tea with any main dish so this is going to be a standard meal set up.

Islandwide delivery is available with no minimum order. The catch is that there are fixed delivery periods for different regions of Singapore.
