The safety and presence of pathogenic microorganisms in street foods are attracting special attention from consumers. Milk tea (bubble tea) is a hot trend that is most popular among young people in street food in Southeast Asia. In this study, the method of surveying and quantifying Ecoli - Coliform in milk tea samples was combined to assess microbial contamination status and assess the opinion of students. Initial results show the existence of pathogenic microorganisms Ecoli and Coliform in milk tea with the significantly different level of contamination between milk tea with the well-known brand (brand name) and no brand name (no brand name). The survey results show that consumers and students, in particular, have a very high level of spending on milk tea and are very concerned about food safety and hygiene in milk tea. However, the information and understanding on food safety and foodborne pathogens are minimal.
