And no, I am not biased towards this place just because they have sweet potato smoothie. Their sweet potato smoothie actually tastes just like the ones I make at home hehe ^__^
I like how big their menu is and that they provide pictures of almost everything on their website. Not only can you order drinks such as milk tea, iced tea, coffee, and smoothies, but you can also get frozen yogurt, shaved ice, and shaved snow! I have yet to try their desserts, but one thing I can tell you for sure is that their drinks are consistently good. I guarantee you’ll find something you’ll like here!
Purple Kow is one of the most famous milk tea places in San Francisco.

However, I believe this place is way overrated. The wait in line to order is super long. The wait to get your drink is even longer. And you think you’d be happy to finally get your drink after an hour wait, but nope, that happiness goes away as soon as you taste it because the drinks aren’t good either (sorry if I’m being too harsh here). I tried several different drinks from this place, hoping to find something I’d like, but all of them confirmed my feelings about this place. (more…)
