A couple months ago, in the pouring rain, we spied a food truck parked on a vacant lot at the corner of 6th & Moyamensing. Up until very recently, this property looked like this:

Today though, Boba & Company has parked their food truck on the property and created a landscaped seating area, dramatically improving this generally lousy looking property.

Boba & Company

As the name suggests, they offer bubble tea for sale, and as the name doesn't indicate they also offer a limited menu of Laotian-Cambodian cuisine. We got a bubble tea when we visited in the rain the other month, but their Facebook page indicates that they're currently doing some repairs so they're not open right this minute to try anything else. We hope they'll be back up and running in the near future, and if you're in the area you can feel free to check 'em out.

Weinberg Park across the street

And if you're looking for a place to enjoy your bubble tea, might we suggest Weinberg Park, a little triangular green space formed by the intersection of 6th Street, Jackson Street, and Moyamensing Avenue. In doing a bit of research, we learned that the Ideal Theater once stood on this property but as you can see from the height of the trees here, it's been a park for a good while now. Does anyone remember seeing a movie at the Ideal Theater? Has anyone else tried the bubble tea at Boba & Company?
