This popular drink, originally invented in Taiwan, is easy to make at home with many different variations. The classic version consists of creamy milk tea and chewy tapioca balls, also referred to as boba or pearls.

I went to the 626 Night Market last month and there was a vendor, Squidies, that was selling drinks in light bulb glasses. They had the longest line at the event, and even though I know it’s really gimmicky, I just had to have it. So now I have two light bulb glasses which I haven’t done much with. They are super cute though aren’t they? And I thought they’d be perfect for making bubble tea with.

The Milk Bar is a milkshakes and cookies dessert bar located next to and owned by the team behind Streetcar Merchants of Fried Chicken, Doughnuts and Coffee. As you may recall, I first visited during their soft opening phase earlier this year.

We’ve visited a few times since then and now that they’ve settled in, I thought it was time for an updated post.

These sesame zucchini noodles are a lower carb version of traditional Chinese sesame noodles. They are easy to make and perfect for the summer because they can be eaten hot or cold.

Sesame noodles are one of my favorite summertime dishes. Noodles are tossed in an easy sauce and can be enjoyed warm, room temperature or cold. This zucchini version is even lighter and more refreshing.
