Bubble tea lovers, if you didn’t join in the hype last night
And you’re crying and beating yourself up about it, don’t.
Because a new superhero has emerged in Singapore.
No, it’s not MAWA Man.
It’s something infinitely better. Something we’ve all heard from before.
Because apparently, the folks at 8Days are fellow bubble tea addicts and they’ve managed to discover how YOU can still get bubble tea in Singapore.

There Are Still Places to buy Bubble Tea From Today Onwards Due to a ‘Loophole’ & Here’s a List
So plenty of bubble tea stores went under after PM Lee’s and his taskforce’s announcement last night.
But guess what?
Bubble tea stores don’t just exist in shopping malls.
They’re also in hawker centres which, if you recall, are still essential businesses.
Here’s the particular bit:
Standalone outlets (excluding those in hawker centres, food courts and coffeeshops) that sell only beverages, packaged snacks, confectioneries or desserts.
Located at Maxwell Food Centre, this stall sells:
- Collagen Milk Tea ($3 medium, $3.60 large)
- Mango Smoothie Macchiato ($4)
- Brown Sugar Fresh Milk ($2.90 medium, $3.50 large)
They offer islandwide delivery via WhatsApp (9753 5109), GrabFood, Foodpanda, Deliveroo and WhyQ (limited to a distance of 3km).
Opening hours: 9am to 3pm / 6pm to 8pm (Mon to Fri); 9am to 3pm (Sat & Sun)
For those within Toa Payoh, there’s free delivery for orders $30 and above.
As for the rest of Singapore, be more patient because they’re now in the process of setting up GrabFood delivery.
You can call or text to order at 8118 4347.
Opening hours: 9am to 11pm daily

This familiar brand also posted on Facebook to announce that they are not affected by the closure.
But, there’s a caveat: they are not serving any walk-in bubble tea only orders.
This means that if you want bubble tea only, you have to get it delivered via GrabFood and Foodpanda.
Either that or get it with your food if you’re passing by.
They are limiting each customer to 2 combos of 2 food items + 2 drinks.
Bubble tea is delicious, they say, but it’s a dangerous time now and they want you to think of your safety too.
Please Deliver Whenever Possible
When the circuit breaker was extended last night, the ministerial taskforce told Singaporeans to stay home as much as possible.
If you look at the entries above, you’d come to see that they are available for home deliveries.
So if you want your fix of bubble tea, please get it delivered to you instead of going down to queue for it.
After all, we don’t want hawker centres to be closed until further notice too, right?
