Boba Guys

I don’t know anyone in Canada that seriously calls it boba – it’s known as bubble tea here, so it was obvious how uniquely American this brand is.

When I first visited the Bay Area is 2014, my friend had recommended that I go here; but time constraints and lack of seriousness in trying different bubble tea led it to be forgotten. This past summer, my friend added it to our itinerary for San Francisco, and off we went in search of one during our one day in San Francisco.

We went to visit friends in the area and took the Caltrain down to San Antonio. After finding our way around (and the first rideshare I’ve ever taken), we were dying for a bite to eat. We headed to the local plaza where the Chinese place had not yet opened, so we went next door and landed at Los Altos Taqueria.

Our first night in the Bay Area, we stayed near SFO at a place in Millbrae. Before we left, I looked up places to eat nearby, and saw Millbrae Pancake House had both good reviews and appealing photos, so onto the list it went.

Chowders

For a place that is named what it is, you would assume we went here for their clam chowder… but we did not. Instead we got the plate with all fried seafood.
