Went to the Class 302 Cafe location in Cerritos and wasn't super enthused. The drinks are big and colorful but were wayyyyy too sweet, with no compensating tartness, for my tastes. Our group had several of the boba drink options (tea, smoothies, etc.) and I didn't care for any of them (soft boba, ugh). It looks like other locations have an interesting self-serve option, sort of like the Pinkberry of boba spots, but the Cerritos location is counter service only where they make your drinks. I noticed that shaved ice was big with the other patrons while we were there (well, also it's summer). I didn't see if the Cerritos location has hot food but it is available at other locations, according to the online menu. Has anyone else been? The self-serve boba bar might be interesting.
Tonight while I was waiting ... and waiting ... for my lamb kabob at Mount of Lebanon (which is now owned and run by the son; the Warrenton operation and Halal slaughterhouse is owned and run by the father), I had plenty of time to browse and shop (why do so many middle-eastern restaurants not begin fixing your order until you arrive? I get so frustrated with this). Well, anyway, I bought a Ziyad Brand 12-ounce plastic tub of Jordan Almonds, and noticed, once again, that lot of these products have a very similar taste and texture. Are there any that stand out as clearly superior to their competition? I like them, and they're addicting to snack on (my lamb kabob is still sitting downstairs, to be eaten for lunch tomorrow), but I can't help feeling they could be better still - maybe slightly less sweet, and with a touch more salt would put them in better balance. Anyway, does anyone have any strong feelings about Jordan Almonds? This Ziyad Brand is certainly respectable, but I can't help wondering if it could be better.
