Ki Tea House Cafe
Ki Tea House Cafe is a relatively new bubble tea shop that opened earlier in 2014. The thing that caught my eye was seeing their cosplay contest back during their grand opening in July.
The inside of this establishment is quite spacious and clean. There’s a couple of large communal tables in the middle of the cafe as well as a number of smaller tables on the perimeter and a small patio. When I first entered the shop, the first thing that I noticed was the large white board with hand-drawn anime.
For my first visit, I tried the Ki House Special – a sandwich comprised of tuna salad, salami, roast beef, provolone, and lettuce on a grilled focaccia ($6.75). I know, it might sound a big ostentatious but I think that’s what I liked about it. The focaccia was crisp on the outside from the grilling process (which is necessary because the contents of the sandwich is drippy). I also had a Strawberry Mango Fruit Smoothie ($4) with added mango stars.
On a subsequent visit, I decided to try their Orange Cream ($5) which is kind of like a cross between an orange creamsicle and an orange julius.
The Italian Waffle ($5.50) is made with prosciutto, salami, and provolone served on top of a waffle. I like that the waffle was prepared properly and was not soggy… it actually held up well to the filling and dressing and made it easy to turn into a sandwich.
If it’s busy here, it can take a while for them to make the food.
