We also have three signature poke sauces our customers can choose from, which are sriracha mayo sauce, sesame sauce and pineapple wasabi sauce. Any of the two scoops protein poke bowl are priced at $14.95. The Uncle Sharkii Bowl has three scoops of protein which is priced at $16.95. All our poke bowls are at 32-ounce size.
For boba milk tea, we offered eight flavors, which are all the most popular flavors like honey- dew milk tea and taro milk tea. We also offer classic black tea and Jasmin green milk tea. If you like
something more refreshing, I will recommend mango green tea or strawberry black tea. Don’t forget to try our Thai tea — it’s fabulous. All boba tea is priced at $5.95 and customers have options to choose toppings like regular boba, lychee jelly and mango/strawberry pop- ping boba.
