Was in the area getting my car serviced today and wanted a cool drink - no surprise on a hot day - so I walked over to the mini-mall at Santa Monica and Westgate. The Tapioca Express that was run by a Thai family and had good tea drinks and Thai snacks is gone - sort of. Despite the sign saying new management, the interior (from what I could see through the window) looked essentially unchanged. The menu posted in the window looked like your basic Westside Thai joint, with the addition of an elaborate for a restaurant boba menu on the bottom. The new name is something like Green View Thai (???).
So, is this the same family expanding from snacks into full dining? Or is it a completely new group that happened to keep up the boba? Does anyone know?
The new/old Thai/boba place is at:
11870 Santa Monica Blvd.
between Westgate and Armacost
