i actually hate this place. i would NEVER come to this place if i didnt have to. the bubble tea/milkshakes/smoothies are absolutely the worst in town and i have had enough to judge. the service is horrible and nonexistent. 9.5 out of 10 times i do not want boba in my bubble tea. despite the fact that how horrible their drinks taste, one time i order bubble tea from between hours and asked for no boba, my drink was literally a little bit more than half cup filled. i asked why and she told with a BAD ATITUDE that their drinks were proportional pre-poured so i did not want boba therefore my drink wasnt filled. what kinda BULLSHIT is that? you did not charge me less for no boba so why cant i have my drink filled up. i thought that was super ridiculous. their fro-yo tastes horrible too. there are plenty of better bubble tea and fro-yo places near allston/brighton area, so no way i would want to return to this place esp with the TERRIBLE service and food.
last night, 5 friends and i went to shanghai gate for din din. we headed to between hours because one friend insisted and said the bingsoo (shaved ice) is good.
i shared a green tea bingsoo with my friend. meh, this was ok. wasnt as horrible as other things that they have. they put boba and banana in it which i dont like.
two other friends shared a red bean bingsoo
and my friend has this banana split by himself. i tried some and did not like it. tasted like very cheap ice cream.
while we were there, we had some fun with my iphone fisheye lens.
