Chè, Coffee, Milk Tea, Smoothies, Juices… if any of these sound like a yummy mid-morning treat or afternoon snack, we’ve got a new spot you have to try. With over 70 different locations, the menu, styles and flavors of BAMBU are loved by fruit-drinkers everywhere. In San Diego, you can find Bambu in Kearny Mesa, serving up delicious Vietnamese drinks with flair.
Chè – A Traditional Vietnamese Specialty Dessert Drink
If you haven’t heard of Chè yet, you’re not the only one. Chè is the traditional term for Vietnamese dessert and sweet beverage drinks. They’re made up of jellies, bobas, pieces of fruit and coconut water. Filled with all kinds of seeds and slices, the drinks are not just sweet and flavorful, but healthy as well.
Unsure which Chè to try first? The “Bambu Favorite” is definitely a safe bet. It has red tapioca, grass jelly and pandan jelly mixed into fresh coconut milk and crushed ice. Or if you want a treat even healthier, try the Bambu Special. It has pieces of fresh coconut, pandan jelly, longan and basil seeds, all in coconut water and crushed ice as well.
Real, Fresh, Boba and Milk Tea Drinks
Bambu is also known for their Milk Tea drinks, but they do things a little bit differently than other boba shops. All the drinks are mixed and made in-house, as they are ordered. Everything they create is fresh – none of the fruit comes from a can and none of the milk tea flavors come from a mix. This is no small feat. For example, the Taro Milk Tea is cooked from the actual taro root, and blended from taro paste. All the fruit added to the drinks are cut up in house as well. Try some of these treats in your next drink! Milk Tea comes with two free add-ons.
The smoothies are blended using all fresh ingredients as well. Try one of the premium smoothies for a super healthy treat – the avocado and coconut smoothie is a-maz-ing.
The Pandan Waffle – A Waffle Experience Unlike Any Other
We didn’t understand what we were getting into when we first took a bite of the Pandan Waffle. The outside is green, crispy, savory and sweet like a traditional waffle, but once we got to the middle, we found something surprising. Squishy and sweet, the pandan jelly doesn’t cook through with these waffles, creating a waffle experience unlike any other. These treats make a great pairing for your milk tea or che drink snack, and at only 3.50 each, you’ve got to grab one next time you go.
