We tried ice cream from 3 different shops so you don't have to

I sampled ice cream from three establishments in town: Halo Pub, Bent Spoon, and Thomas Sweet. At each location, I got a small vanilla scoop in a cup, just to be sure I was making a fair comparison. But, of course, every shop has its own specialties, so I also asked the staff about their favorite flavors. Along with my reviews you can find other recommendations for inside scoops and specialties!

We tried boba from Junbi so you don't have to

Our first round of boba reviews was released right as the mega matcha chain Junbi was opening a new location on Witherspoon. Without Junbi, it seems, our comparison of Princeton’s boba was lacking. So as soon as midterms were over, I hopped right on over to the new shop to try their boba for myself, and here are my thoughts!

We tried 4 boba places in Princeton so you don’t have to

I sampled boba from four establishments right on Nassau: Fruity Yogurt & Cafe, Kung Fu Tea, Korean Barbeque Grill (KBG), and Ficus. At each location, I got a standard milk tea with tapioca pearls so I could be sure I was making a fair comparison. Read the reviews for inside scoops and specialties!
