best boba-- not drinks, just the tapioca?
One of my best friends went to Pomona College and now lives in Taipei. He swears by the boba (the tapioca, not just the tea itself) at a particular place in-- drat, I can't even think of the name of the town right now. In any case, he pointed out a machine and said that the boba was made in small batches to ensure freshness. Since this was years ago I can't quite remember if the boba was much different other than being warmer (from having been fresly made, I suppose) and perhaps softer than the boba at some other places.
Can anyone recommend a place with good boba-- not just the drinks-- in the metro-LA area? Or does it not really matter so much since most places mask everything with the flavor of the drinks?
