Great news, Daboba fans! The popular Taiwanese bubble tea brand has opened its second branch outside The Mall, Gadong, following the successful introduction of its first outlet in December 2019.
The storefront is easily recognisable for its grizzly-bear mascot along with its grey, black and white patterned design.
Inside, the floor-to-ceiling windows allow natural lighting to cascade into the space, muted by the cool tones of black and grey interior creating a leisurely and relaxed atmosphere for patrons to enjoy.
The Manager of T.M.W Boba (B) Tang Wui Min, wanted to evoke a sense of vibrancy and fun into the design.
This includes the insta-worthy black and white adorable art mural that notably stands out, bringing fresh life to the boba joint.
Furthermore, developed with accessibility in mind, the new branch is introducing a fast-casual concept where customers can take-away without the fuss or muss.
The seating area can accommodate up to 10 customers, definitely an ideal place to hang out.
Daboba is also planning to open an outdoor seating area so customers can enjoy their drinks while people watching.
According to Tang, the Mall is a prime shopping centre in the sultanate and a highly popular destination for shoppers, making it a perfect and strategic location for their second branch.
“Before this, the location used to be an old police post which has not been occupied for a long time. It was an ideal location for us, so we decided to rent the place and open up our second branch.”
To celebrate its new launch, Daboba will also be introducing its guilt-free Yogurt series.
Rich in fiber and fresh with sliced fruits, the new series is definitely a healthy and delicious way to start your day.
Customers can expect five delicious flavours: Mix Fruity Yogurt, Purple Rice Yogurt, Strawberry Yogurt, Avocado Yogurt and Grain Yogurt.
Tang shared that her personal favourite is the Grain Yogurt, adding, “I like to drink this in the morning because it tastes like breakfast.”
When you take a sip of their popular Purple Rice Yogurt, you will be able to taste the thick and natural sweetness of the yogurt and the unique blend of the purple rice. Nutritious and protein-rich, perfect for the health-conscious.
Moreover, customers can get their bear-shaped cups from Daboba’s crowd-pleasing bestsellers including the Roasted Brown Sugar series, Taiwanese Brown Sugar Series, Honey Golden Pearl Series, Classic Milk Tea series and Cheese Tea Series, among others.
For first-timers, their Roasted Brown Sugar Pearl Fresh Milk is highly recommended by devoted Daboba fans with its layers of cream foam, caramel-coated tapioca pearls and brown sugar that’s torched until perfection.
When asked about future plans for the franchise, Tang said that they are eyeing on expanding its presence in Brunei by opening more branches in the future.
