Treat to Try: Bubble Waffle at Millions of Milk Tea
Of all the places to set up shop for a Chinese take out, right next to the immortal Moy’s on campus seems like…well, the least likely spot for that sort of operation.
But then again, Millions of Milk Tea has a great deal more than Kung Pao Chicken and wontons. As the name suggests, beverages are the headliner. And the “millions” moniker isn’t far off. If there aren’t literally millions of types of beverage combos, there are enough to leave a newbie with full-on analysis-paralysis. Not only is there a choice of teas, slushies, milks and punches, there’s also toppings that include bubbles and pudding, and sweetness levels that range from zero to 120%.
Fortunately though, the angst of all that decision-making was avoided, as the day’s mission was neither for Chinese food, nor a beverage. Millions of Milk Tea has yet another trick up its sleeve: Bubble Waffles.
Bubble Waffles are probably not a breakfast food, although the place opens at 10 a.m., so it’s an option. Bubble Waffles are gourmet ice cream cones. The waffle comprises the cone itself: golden crisp on the exterior, and soft and tender inside each giant, symmetrical bubble. Inside of the cone is a generous scoop of ice cream. After finding the first couple of flavor choices were out-of-stock, vanilla ice cream seemed like an okay choice for a foundation. Then you put mostly Western toppings on that, a sauce or a sprinkle of nuts or candy. Choosing caramel and Oreos yielded an impressive landscape that featured mammoth whole cookies shoved into the sides of the cone.
It takes awhile for the kitchen to make the waffle, and the treat will set you back about $8.50 with a few toppings. But the garnishes are lux, and you end up with something that’s wow-worthy, so it’s decent bang for the buck.
You’ll find Millions of Milk Tea at 1990 N. High St.
