I have tried these at a couple of places in Chinatown.
1. The one upstairs at the corner
Decent juice/tea, pearls are too hard and not sweet.
2. At the bakery (Eido?)
Better pearls than above, however lacking in the juice department.
Are there any other, better places, more towards the West Coast standards? Is a Tapioca Express lurking around by any chance?
Judging by the fairly large size of students from Asia, I would imagine (and hope) that there would be better places than the two above.
