TORONTO — Benkei Hime, Toronto’s first integrated lifestyle bubble-tea cafe, is now open. Located in the Eaton Centre, the restaurant offers unique bubble-tea drinks, such as Caramel Sea Salt Pearl Milk Tea and Hazelnut Crème Brulee, in addition to lifestyle merchandise.
“At Benkei Hime, we want you to have a one-of-a-kind experience. If we can give people a good time during this tough time, then I think we did a good thing here,” says Jason Wang, owner of the store. “Indeed, this goal of providing smiles can be immediately seen in the vibrant colours, catchy design and Instagram-worthy decor inside the store.”
Originally born in Asia, the brand already has a second location at Markham’s CF Markville Mall slated to open this summer. Additional stores are currently in the planning stages.
