Lakwatsa is a bubble tea lounge in Notting Hill. It serves a wide range of both fruity and milk-based bubble teas served in jam jars with oversized straws for sucking up the tapioca pearls. The merienda menu, inspired by Filipino snacks, includes spring rolls and adobo rice balls, as well as Asian classics like prawn tempura and spicy fried squid. Desserts include Filipino favourites like banana and jackfruit fritters, leche flan, and Halo Halo (shaved ice, evaporated milk and exotic toppings).
