Bobalicious is a local lunch wagon that may be found at local events like Eat the Street. Their main items include waffle dogs and bubble drinks.

At November's Eat the Street!

I ordered a waffle dog ($3): a hot dog inside a semi-sweet waffle batter. While it also came in a Philly Cheesesteak variety (didn't see it on a menu or anything), the original was fine with me. The salty, savory dog worked well with that waffle batter. I honestly didn't think it needs any condiments, but if I had to have one, I'd go with good ol' maple syrup. It's something about savory and sweet that creates such peaceful noshing moments.

My friend and I were taking some photos waiting for that waffle dog when one of the cart owners presented us with a free bubble drink, a Li Hing Pineapple bubble drink (usually $4). Real generous there, he really didn't have to do that.

An explosion of pineapple flavor, and the li hing mui (think a salty dried plum flavor) livened the drink even further. A classic use of li hing mui in Hawaii (pairing with fruit). This was my first bubble drink ever (yeah, I must have lived under a rock all this time). The chewy tapioca balls at the bottom of the drink were a bit strange at first (and were hard to suck into that larger straw). However, I enjoyed it overall!

Check out Bobalicious at their next event! 7.75/10
