Actually, giant boobs might be more correct, as that's what boba is slang for. The Boba Guys, Bin Chen and Andrew Chau, have been chronicling their milk tea start-up over at Good.

We stumbled upon them in search of noodles at the new Ken Ken Ramen on 18th Street in the Mission. The Boba Guys were using the front of the house to sell their boba deliciousness that day. The guys were super welcoming, the operation was surprisingly settled and efficient for a pop-up, and the tea itself?

It was very delicious! In fact, it was so light, sweet, chewy, and perfect that it made us forget that we were craving Ken Ken's traditional Japanese-style ramen, and happily sipped away at the glorious boba bounty.

The Boba Guys were serving up regular boba milk tea, as well as variations made with soy milk, and inventive flavors like horchata boba. Fancy! We tried the soy boba which was delicate and lightly sugared, filled with fantastically chewy pearls of perfection. 

To find out when the Boba Guys are serving next, follow their twitter and Facebook.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
