Big News! Well Tea now accepts Interact hahah. That was the only reason that stopped me from dining here the first time because I didn’t have any cash on hand (and was too lazy to head to the nearest ATM). On a general note, you’ll find that most restaurants in Richmond are cash only so come prepared!
Anyways, we decided to grab a late night dinner/snack at Well Tea. This was after a couple hours of intense rounds of badminton. Phew, it really hit the spot.
I was craving the Taiwanese style deep fried crispy chicken nuggets, so that’s what I got! They actually have two kinds of the chicken nuggets: regular and spicy. Comparing the two, I prefer the “spicy” version.
The spicy was not spicy at all and has more flavour than the regular version. The waitress said the chicken meat itself was marinated in the spicy sauce, which might be why.
The regular one was a bit bland and tasted like plain deep fry. I was expecting basil, or some other seasoning. With that said, my recommendation goes to the spicy one. You’ll taste just a teeny tiny hint of spicy :)
The item I ordered was a set meal so it came with plain white rice and a couple of side veggies. Standard variety of sides here: cooked greens (yu-choi), kelp seaweed, and napa cabbage.
For drinks, I ordered a peach black tea that was sweet and refreshing. You can’t really go wrong with a simple drink like flavoured black or green tea. The sweetness was perfect for my taste buds. But if you can’t handle sugar well, I recommend getting your drink half sweet as a benchmark for the next visit.
It’s nice how they have various options for customizing the level of sweetness in your drink. I also recommend going with the fresh fruit/real milk options whenever possible because it tastes better.
Until next time <3 share some happy eats!
Side note, the place does have a lingering scent of smoke/cigarettes. So if you’re sensitive to that small, I do not recommend dining here. It was barely noticeable so I didn’t mind.
