    Oh man now I want this for dinner tonight. How does boba taste slimy – it makes me shiver thinking it’s like the tapioca balls gone ‘bad’. I like how we both fear anything smothering fried stuff b/c of fried stuff getting soggy 🙂

    That’s a great photo bomb pic at the end 🙂

      Hi Faye – I didn’t think it was slimy – I think the kids just didn’t know how else to describe it. “Chewy goodness” it how I would describe it but maybe that’s just me 🙂 Yeah, I really really hate when things get soggy! Even cereal, man. Soggy is the worst texture ever if you ask me!

      I had another photo of Jake but the photo bomb picture made me laugh so I used that one instead. S is such a ham. 😀

    We used to live walking distance from Tastea and got their slushes with boba all the time. Oh now I am craving it! Their mango slush is SO good and extra refreshing during thr summer time. I have only had their kalbi ribs here. Great post, M. We must go back!

      Hi Janice – The slushes do sound really refreshing! I liked the sheer number of flavors and offerings they had – they seemed to have just about everything!

  3. The folks here are so nice. We’ve been here quite a few times in the past. I like the Basil Beef at Tastea Grill. TC likes the boba drinks here.

    FYI – This place used to be Eduard’s (a Filipino owned fancy dessert place which closed in 2007). The Thai place next door, Bamboo Garden is also pretty good.

      Hi CC – I had a feeling you had probably been here, haha! I must not have noticed the Basil Beef – sounds really tasty! I hadn’t been to any of the restaurants in this area of CV – it reminded me of a quaint little Downtown-ish area. Maybe we’ll check out that Thai place sometime.
