Pearl House Restaurant specializes in making Taiwanese food and bubble tea. They are located just off of Kingsway in South Burnaby.
I stopped by for a quick lunch to fill my insatiable need for noodles and bubble tea.
I ordered a taro slush with pearls ($5). This was my first time ever trying a taro bubble tea drink. I didn’t really know what to expect from it, but I ended up loving it. Although this isn’t a reason to order the drink, I also thought the colour was very pretty.
I’m not sure exactly how to describe taro flavour, but it was mild and sweet. This drink also had a thick texture, almost like a milkshake.
For lunch I had the beef sirloin with regular noodles in soup ($7.50). Everything about this soup was excellent.
The noodles were nice and chewy and there was a good-sized portion of them (enough to fill you up and a good noodle to broth ratio). The beef sirloin was tender and it pulled apart easily. The broth had a rich beef flavour and a hint of spice.
I had a great meal at Pearl House and everything was affordable and filling. Pearl House made one of the better Taiwanese beef noodle soups that I have had, so I would recommend trying it.
Yes, for great Taiwanese beef noodles and bubble tea.
