A new spot to score bubble tea and more has made its debut in the neighborhood. Called Boba Panda, the new arrival is located at 1796 Shattuck Ave.
Boba Panda serves up milk teas, tea lattes, smoothies, fruit tea and more. Look for options like the Panda grass jelly milk tea, mango green tea and smoothies filled with either red bean, matcha, strawberry or avocado.
The fresh addition has garnered rave reviews thus far, with a 4.5-star rating out of 21 reviews on Yelp.
Sherry Q., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on Jan. 4, wrote, "Their drinks are affordable and so good. I usually order their brown sugar latte drink or jasmine milk tea. There are also many tables, outlets and wifi."
Yelper Lori N. added, “Their Super Fruit Tea had a nice scent with plenty of bits of fruit, especially watermelon. The boba here was perfectly soft and chewy, completely void of that annoying harder center. You can also adjust the sweetness of the tea and the amount of ice to your liking.”
