BOBA Station Bubble Tea- Popping Bubble Fun

This is the Litchi (this is how they spelled it) Boba Tea “bubble”.  If you’ve been reading us for a while, you know Ashley and I are a little fanatic about Boba Tea.  Last night, I wandered around Hard Rock cafe with the hubby waiting for 1/2 time to finish on the UM game and stumbled upon the Boba Station Food Truck.  I was so excited to try I could barely contain myself, my husband was standing a little ways back from me trying to hide his embarrassment while I snapped pictures and giggled with glee.  Something about being a foodie makes you geekier about food than everyone else.  Seriously, who gets excited about trying different brands of Boba Tea?

This is the wonderful Peach Green Tea Boba with Litchi bubbles. Lychee, as you probably already know, is normally a kind of slimy, round, fruit that tastes quite good.  The combination of Peach and Green Tea with the Litchi was perfect.  What a fantastic, light refreshment!!  The bubbles are not like regular ones, they actually burst with juice inside.  My husband refused to taste it, thinking it looked like a science experiment but every juicy squish was delicious.

Boba Station makes their rounds in Miami and Broward, to track them (or stalk them) go to http://www.bobastation.com/   or you can go to http://miamifoodtrucks.com/2011/05/seminole-hard-rock/ and double check to see if they are there but I believe they are at Hard Rock every Thursday for the Food Truck invasion.

Dolci Peccati: Miami’s Sinfully Delicious, Non-Dairy Gelato on Wheels

Dolci Peccati, translating to sweet sins in Italian, is a Miami food truck specializing in gelato, the decadently sweet Italian ice cream. While the majority of their menu is sinfully filled with calories and dairy, they have a few heavenly non-dairy options that are great for vegans with a sweet tooth. This isn’t a new invention, non-dairy gelato has been in Southern Italy for centuries, generally called sorbetto. Fruit, ice and sugar mix to create a light, yet still indulgent dessert, and Dolci Peccati offers a few different flavors for sampling.

I tried the lemon, mint and ginger non-dairy gelato, which sounded so interesting. What amazed me at first glance was the obvious creaminess (maybe due to an addition of non-dairy milk?). The flavors were extremely bright, jumping right off the spoon onto my tongue. The ginger added an earthy sweetness, which combined perfectly with the tartness of the lemon and the herby sweet of the mint. My fiancé was impressed with how much better the non-dairy tasted versus his dairy-filled oreo gelato milkshake.

A pair of very sweet identical twin girls run the truck, which is clad in dark purple and black, and the girls wear matching purple outfits (when I visited, they had on super cute purple tutu’s). Prices are reasonable for gelato, at $ 4.50 per generous cup. They travel to most of the food truck meets in Miami, you can follow them on Twitter for location updates @gelatotruckmia.
