Bubble Nini The Exchange
You'll find house-made pearls at this inner-city bubble tea joint.
Haymarket is clearly not short on bubble tea joints. But when Chippendale's Bubble Nini opened within the Maker's Dozen food hall in mid-2019, it brought something a little different to the area. Here, the team makes fresh pearls every morning, of which there are six different flavours. Once you've chosen from the 50 different tea options (with punny names like Jasmine Is a Cute-Tea, It Takes Two to Mango and How Ya Bean, Matcha Happening?) you can pick your pearls: sakura, matcha, taro, brown sugar, mango peanut or strawberry. It's a lot of decision making. If you're looking to narrow it down, our pick is the lavender-coloured taro pearls number, A Taro-Bly Bad Name.
Bubble Nini also has locations in Chippendale's Central Park and on Sing Street in Waterloo.
