7. Taichi Bubble Tea

You can view the menu on the Taichi Bubble Tea website.

• Rated 4 out of 5 (5 reviews)

• Address: 800 Loudon Road in Latham

• Top review: “We came around lunch and this place was packed with a non stop line of people waiting to order. This is a place where you order and they will call your number when it’s ready for pick up. They offer all types of bubble tea, fruit teas, smoothies, poke bowls, poke burritos, ramen, and rice boxes. Interior is cute with plenty of seating, greenery on the walls and some stuffed animals when you walk in. In the middle area has extra utensils, straws, and where you return the trays. Service was relatively quick given how busy they were. The poke bowl portion was on the smaller side, and definitely was lacking with the rice portion – there was more toppings than rice. But the flavors were good. Bubble tea had a bit more milk than other places. I think this is a solid place if you are craving some bubble tea and want a quick bite to eat.” — Simone L.

We ordered several soups (kimchi jjigae, dduk gook, jjampong, thin noodle soup), fried chicken, and steamed egg. The food was jam packed with flavor and portions extremely generous. Banchan was delicious as well. The food tasted like a home cooked meal and hit the spot.

This Tom Yum Ramen was savory and sweet while the red curry brought the heat. The pad thai was phenomenal as well! Great idea for a date spot or group meal!” — Jessica W.

• Rated 4 out of 5 (43 reviews)

• Address: 1 Crossgates Mall Road in Albany

• Top review: ” I absolutely recommend this place. From the time I arrived I was greeted by a staff member. We went pretty early (for lunch) so there was no wait time. My waiter Ray was amazing. He was knowledgeable, friendly and just over all gave us an amazing experience. I recommend he gets a raise. The drinks were so good perfect balance of alcohol and flavor. I recommend the Hawaiian Sky if you like sweet drinks, it taste like a peach ring candy. We had sushi for starters: salmon wrapped mango (raw) and the dinosaur egg (cooked). That Dino egg was delicious. We chose the bbq option for the assortment of meats. It also came with veggies and fried rice! And we ordered a bowl of ramen. I think we went into a food coma and it was great!” — Sandra S.

I rate this place: 10/10.” — Cyd D.
