Bubble tea fans looking for a typical Chinatown spot—a cramped, neon room with blaring C-pop and powdery, saccharine drinks—will be disappointed with One Hour. The U of T students using the place as an informal study hall, however, love the cozy, serene space. The menu is short but covers all the student food groups of fresh (edamame), fried (chicken wings), homespun (braised beef soup) and sweet (cheesecake in a jar). An extensive list of bubble teas includes the classics—white peach, lychee, passion fruit—as well as premium slushes made with blended bananas, mangoes, rosebuds and taro root.
