Böba Bothell

Make life a little sweeter by stopping in at Böba Bothell, a women-and-family-owned establishment that creates classic and inventive bubble teas, and sweet and savory snacks, like takoyaki and bubble waffle cones.

Try something new like the crowd-pleasing black milk tea with tapioca or try their fruity slushes, with flavors like passionfruit, rose, and lychee.

Chantanee Thai

Journey over to Chantanee Thai where the motto is “Passionately prepared Thai food” and it’s not hard to see why.  Order any dish that features the restaurant’s original, homemade chili paste — it’s one that puts this establishment on the culinary map, separating it from others.

Its owner Julaluk Chantanee brought her culinary prowess from Thailand to the Pacific Northwest and opened her first restaurant in 1996.

Experience the magic of Mexico at Julio’s, where everything is made fresh and every entree is individually cooked to order,” says Chef Julio Silva. “It may take a little longer, but you’ll find it’s worth the wait.”

This Mexican restaurant offers familiar dishes — including burritos, carnitas, and carne asada — and daily specials, paired with staples, such as pico de gallo and guacamole, prepared fresh by the staff every day.

Tá Jóia

Taste something truly unique at Tá Jóia where the Lee family combines its Korean heritage with the matriarch’s time in Brazil to create flavors that pay homage to both countries. The Tá Jóia Special — only available after 4 p.m. — is a shining example of this: A hearty bowl with slow-cooked brisket, pork, and sausage over Spanish rice, paired with pico de gallo and the restaurant’s signature green sauce.
