Unlike my last review of Boba cafe, we decided to order tons of traditional Taiwanese food this time. There were only a couple other groups inside at the time, so there was plenty of seating. We were asked by the person at the counter if we were eating in or ordering out, and when we proceeded to say we were eating in, we were directed to a table and provided with water and menus.
Today, we decided to order drinks and food, which included Lychee Icy, Strawberry Milk Tea, Beef Noodle Soup, “Noodle with ground pork, bean sprouts, shredded cucumber, and sauce” (ja jiang mien), potstickers, and scallion pancake. The lychee icy tasted good as always and was not too sweet, but would have probably went better with snack foods and not a whole meal. I was not a fan of the strawberry milk tea, but then again I usually don’t drink flavored milk teas. The beef noodle soup was really good. The broth had a lot of flavor and came with a good amount of meat. I ordered mines without vegetables so my bowl looked even more full. The noodles are not homemade, but still tasted good. The ja jiang mein looked very appealing when first provided, but also tasted very good as well once mixed up. There was a good amount of meat mixed in with the sauce that went perfectly with the vegetables. The pot stickers taste and look handmade and were juicy with the nice pan-sear marks. The scallion pancake was very flakey and had a good amount of scallions inside, but not too much. The meal as a whole showcases many of the popular Taiwanese dishes. Boba Café actually did very well in creating these dishes and we ended up eating everything.
Overall, if you wanted delicious Taiwanese food or wanted to grab a Bob drink, then Boba Café would be a great choice. Also, unlike years past, the new owners actually take credit cards, which helps with a large meal like this. The server followed up with us multiple times and the food arrived promptly. I strongly recommend this eating establishment to anyone hungry for Taiwanese food.
