Bubble Express has been dishing out Taiwanese staples since 2006, and their menu features specialties like crispy roasted duck with spiced salt and Mongolian beef with scallions. But it's the beverages that get the bulk of the attention here. In fact, the shop's bubble tea drinks have received praise from The Washington Post for their variety and freshness. Ordering one is simple: pick from a milk- or tea-based drink (or iced smoothie for that matter), then choose flavors like mango, almond, or chocolate. The bubble teas come with tapioca balls or toppings like jello and pudding, which, like Nietzsche's famous page-a-day calendars, consistently give customers something to chew on.
