It's no secret Hongkongers are obsessed with bubble tea. We know it's not the healthiest of drinks, and we've heard countless lectures about the unhealthy amount of money we spend on the beverage, but we just can't stop. So why stop at only tea? As the bubble tea frenzy spills over to other gastronomic delights, we hunt down six mouth-watering concoctions inspired by our favourite drink.

True bubble tea fanatics should be no stranger to Ten Ren's Tea – famous for using fresh milk and quality tea – but did you know they also sell brown sugar bubble milk tea flavoured popcorn ($25)? Each puffed corn kernel has a subtle milky note, graciously coated with caramel. You can find these mouthwatering gourmet popcorns at any of the Ten Ren's Tea branches or at your neighbourhood 7-11.

Bubble tea and souffle pancakes are two of the most popular items to come from Asia, so it only makes sense that the two found a way to be together at FuwaFuwaPancakes for their love child – the Bubble tea souffle pancakes ($73). We can't think of anything more gratifying than tucking into a heap of pillowy-soft pancakes topped with milk tea-infused cream and pearls.

Sweet toast is a staple in Asian cuisine, so it makes sense that bubble tea would make its way into the classic dessert. TP Tea's popular 'Instagrammable' bubble tea toast ($31) is made from two slices of crispy toast with chewy tapioca pearls sandwiched in the middle, drizzled with sweet sauces.

Hailed as the 'OG' creator of bubble tea, Chun Shui Tang opened in Hong Kong early this year, and with it, came an exclusive to Hong Kong bubble tea lava cake ($58). This soft, fluffy chiffon cake is infused with tieguanyin tea, topped with a generous dollop of cream and brown sugar tapioca pearls.

Okay, we know this isn't a food item, but surely spiked bubble tea gets some sort of leeway, right? Complete with tapioca balls, jasmine tea, maple and crème de cassis (blackcurrant liqueur), Dragonfly's boozy riff on the classic bubble tea, Dragon Pearls ($138), will satisfy both your craving for a comfort drink as well as a lil alcoholic hit.
