This is the location on the south east corner of Highway 7 and Times Ave.
I know people think bubble tea places just have the typical fried snacks and expensive combos and expensive drinks. While all of that is true and also applies to Ten Ren’s, I discovered not too long ago that Ten Ren’s is one of the only places in Toronto that makes oyster pancakes. Please correct me if I’m wrong, I’d love to find other places that sell oyster pancake. (There were 2 restaurants in Toronto that used to sell it. I know YES used to have it but closed down, and Stop & Seat aka Tea Shop stopped serving it – both on Yonge street south of Finch. I think sometimes the Metro Square night market will sell oyster pancakes, but last time they ran out of oysters in the first hour!)
Oyster Pancake (~$7):
I enjoyed their oyster pancake, the colours looked true to the original (in Taiwan). To some of you, this may look disgusting, but to me, it’s a delicacy! Try it, but it’s an acquired taste. You’ve been warned.
|Oyster pancake – gooey goodness|
|Here’s a picture of their takoyaki (octopus balls).|
That’s all I got. The only reason I brought up Ten Ren’s is because of the oyster pancake. Everything else is not particularly good.
Price: $$$ expensive for what you get
Oyster pancake: 4/5
