Coco Leaf Lavender milk tea with flan pudding: Coco Leaf is a Vietnamese dessert shop on Newbury street in Boston featuring colorful multilayer drinks with ingredients like pandan, longnan, and mungbean. I opted for a lighter milk tea with no added sugar, but with flan pudding (a contradiction, I know) to get a sense of their toppings. The milk tea had a rich, creamy flavor, an indication of higher quality milk, while the lavender was pleasantly light. The pudding was also good, with a slippery texture just set enough and tasting of bro... (read more) 3.5/5.0

Tatte Bakery Pistachio croissant: I guess I've been craving pistachio recently. This pistachio croissant from Tatte in Cambridge is dusted with crushed pistachios and had a marzipan-like sweet almond paste lightly mixed inside. Quality texture - flaky crust with a soft airy, slightly elastic interior. 3.5/5.0

New City Microcreamery Fennel and pistachio ice cream: At a little over $4, this kiddie scoop from Cambridge ice cream shop New City Microcreamery was fairly micro-sized, but large enough to get a good sense of the quality. The ice cream, made with liquid nitrogen, has a smooth consistency. I was hoping for more aniseed licorice flavor from the fennel, but it mostly tasted like a solid milk base with bits of pistachio, though there was a little something extra to the aftertaste that told you it wasn't just straight-up vanilla. Would come agai... (read more) 3.5/5.0

Tsaocaa Rose oolong tea with pear: Tsaocaa is a small trendy bubble tea shop a block away from the Chicago CTA subway stop it's large enough to seat groups of teenagers hanging out for hours. I ordered a cup of rose oolong tea with pear with a topping of honey aloe. Served in a sturdy cup, the tea had a slice of orange and lime and a scattering of goji berries floating on the surface alongside a pyramid-shaped tea bag. While the honey aloe was on the sweet side, the drink on the whole had a cleansing and refreshing herbal f... (read more) 3.5/5.0

Quinn's Dark chocolate's peanut filled pretzels: These pretzel nuggets are much better than any I've had before; the pretzels are just salted enough and act as a thin shell around a mostly dark chocolate filling that has just a hint of peanut. The pretzel has a much richer flavor grain flavor than others I've had, and because it's thinner, the overall consistency of each nugget is more crispy than crunchy. Would buy again. 3.5/5.0

Popcorners Spicy Queso Popped-Corn Chips: These "Tex-me" inspired chips have a zingy and slightly spicy aftertaste thanks to the addition of red and black peppercorns. Definitely distinctive from ordinary nacho-flavored chips, so is worth a try if you're looking for a new spin on a cheesy classic. The chips themselves are like other Pop-Chips; light and baked rather than fried, they feel healthier yet similarly indulgent as potato chips. 3.5/5.0
