QQ Kopitiam: Worth the milk tea, but not the food

In the “626” area, especially when there’s a diverse amount of culture instilled in Southern California, the selection of cuisines is endless for the food partisans. The never-ending pop-ups of boba cafes, to restaurants offering various ethnic dishes, defines the sunny state to be memorable for its fair share of Asian food. And that’s what QQ Kopitiam, an Asian fusion restaurant, strives to do.

Just another boba cafe in the 626

Growing up in the 626, you see boba shops on every corner. It’s become natural for people to say “let’s go get a drink” at 10pm and go to a cafe. So when Cafe Roule opened up in Temple City, I went to see if it was just like every other boba place or a hidden gem unlike any other.
