Lollicup is still good enough for us.

Waiting in line at Omomo and 7 Leaves is crazy... not to mention how much it costs.

Since new owners at Lollicup on Jeffrey/walnut, the prices have gone up like 3-4 different times.  What was $5 is now $8.75.  Doesn't sound like much, but when paying for 4, $20 becomes $35 and it's very noticeable.  I love their popcorn chicken, but go there much less now.

I remember thinking about buying the place way back in like 2006...the first owner was selling it for like $450K.  The place basically had a monopoly on boba back then. 

I also remember seeing it being listed a few years back for like $250K...

Wife likes Ding Tea, I'm a bigger fan of the popcorn chicken from Cha, the bogo coupons they have in the Irvine Company coupon books and on the retail therapy app make it our go to.  We use the bogo Mendocino coupon when we're at the one by UCI too.

What do you get? I was there a few weeks ago and it was still $4-5 for a drink... which is about the same everywhere. Omomo I think is $5+ for some of their items and only one size.

The Cheddar Chalupa at Taco Bell was so good.

But someone told me they don't have them anymore... did qwerty buy them all?

After realizing a container of boba is 1,000 calories, I stopped drinking it.

Uh yeah, it'll make your insulin spike to the moon.  I rather eat my calories and carbs, not drink them.  :P

Anyone try Paderia Bakehouse?
https://www.yelp.com/biz/paderia-bakehouse-irvine
The Portuguese egg tarts are really tasty and remind me of Macao. Much better tart than 85c or other bakeries in Irvine.

Jim's Bakery in Alhambra has great Portuguese egg tarts if you're ever in that area.  Guess I'll need to try this place to compare.

Tried the Chips Ahoy McFlurry (came out today). Wow, it was really good.  The mix it with caramel and the textures with the smooth ice cream, sticky caramel and crunchy cookie really works.
