Tea Cup Cafe


Teacup Cafe is the kind of place you’d want to hang out every day after school if you lived in the area while you were a teen. They play Thai pop music and have cute booths and outdoor tables that seem ideal for talking about your latest crush with your closest friends, and you can get a huge portion of very good fried chicken and chewy, deeply green chive cakes for $15. If you consider dessert to be a meal, a very good alternative is to get a shaved ice with all the toppings for $12. There’s corn and beans in it, so even though it’s a “dessert” it doesn’t have to be.
