Boba Guys coming soon to 19th and Valencia

One of our rare high-school readers Asher (say, what do people who are too young to drink in SF do, anyway?) spotted this in a window on 19th and Valencia this weekend. Boba Guys is getting their own storefront. Renovations are under way and they are looking into an Asian-themed food vendor pairing.

Chamalyn, another boba place, previously occupied this space and apparently didn’t survive the competition. Judging from all the Asian ‘tweens I saw filing into Boba Guys’ current 18th st. location this past Sunday, they’ve definitely got the market pegged.

By the way, try their almond jelly in lieu of tapioca. It’s homemade, and it’s bangin’. You can’t make as good spitballs with it, though.

    Looks like a Boba glory hole to me. “Boba White Glory Hole Cuming Soon, Your Home For Milk Tea”

    It’s a little unfair to say that Chamalyn “didn’t survive”. The shop was there for more than 10 years, run by really nice people.

      It was run by nice people, but IMHO their boba tea was just not that great :( I think it was fine when they were the only game in the neighborhood, but yeah, they couldn’t hold up to real competition.

    Hi this is Bin, one of the Boba Guys.

    Chamalyn was a wonderful place and the reason Boba Guys even existed in the first place. Andrew and I would go there a couple times a week to get boba.

    May, the wonderful woman who ran the place, was amazing. She sold the business over a year ago and the new owner kept the same name. But as we all know, it wasn’t the same.

    We hope to do May and Chamalyn justice in providing great milk tea for the Mission.
