The Alley Lu Jiao Xiang ★★★

Highpoint Shopping Centre L03 7308/200 Rosamond Road Maribyrnong VIC 3032 Australia The Alley Lu Jiao Xiang is a new milk tea chain that's started in Taiwan and now has been brought to Melbourne. Lots of drink flavours to choose from and they even make their own pearls, called Deerioca. Worth trying out.  Brown Sugar Deerioca and Fresh Milk $6.60 MOST POPULAR! Was given the instruction to not stir it up but drink as it is. It was way too sweet. Shaking it up distributes the sweetness more evenly. Very creamy and still a bit too sweet for my liking ★★★ Brown Sugar Deerioca and Matcha Latte $6.90 A sweet matcha milk tea. Too sweet for my tastes. Decent pearls. ★★☆ Menu The Alley Lu Jiao Xiang Most Popular/Recommended : Brown Sugar Deerioca Milk Tea Price : $ Address : Highpoint Shopping Centre L03 7308/200 Rosamond Road Maribyrnong VIC 3032 Australia Opening Hours : Monday to Friday: 11am to 9pm Weekends: 11am to 11pm

Noodle House By Lao-Luangprabang ★★☆

4/500 Elizabeth Street Melbourne VIC 3000 Australia Noodle House by Lao is one of the few places in Melbourne where you can try out some Lao cuisine. The place is very hard to find as its located on the second floor and only has a small sign outside. Food is decent, but probably wouldn't come back. Butterfly Pea Lemonade $4 Loved the vibrant colour of this drink! Tasted just like light lemonade ★★☆ Pink Milk Tea $3.50 Like milk tea but with a strong rose flavour ★★ Khao Piak Moo Krob $14.50 Homemade Rice Noodle served in Pork Broth and topped with Crispy Pork MOST POPULAR! Delicious broth! The rice noodles were a bit too gluggy for my liking. Crispy pork was average. ★★☆ Pho Ngua $14.50 Rice Noodles served with a Pho Beef Broth cooked over 4 hours and served as a combination of meat cuts and beef meatballs  Average soup but good rice noodles. ★★ Menu Noodle House By Lao-Luangprabang  Most Popular/Recommended : Khao Piak M
