The menu contains their special alcoholic drinks, special non-alcoholic drinks, and the standard tea and milk tea flavors. I definitely have to come back here to try out all their drinks since I settled on their horchata boba.
I think I was quite blown away by the combination of horchata and boba. I ususally do not have boba in my drinks but this made a great pair. The boba complemented the flavors of horchata. The horchata was also well made and probably one of the best horchata drinks I've had-being well spiced and not overly sweet. If you post about them and hashtag on a social network, you get a free upgrade to a large. My friends tried the Bobagasm and the Applejito. Both are alcoholic drinks with the Bobagasm containing Kahlua and Bailey's. The Applejito is essentially an apple mojito. The Bobagasm was surprisingly strong for a sweeter drink and the coffee flavors were prominent. The Applejito was also strong and refreshing both with the mint and apple flavors.
In addition to their addictive drinks, Boba 7 boasts a resident magician aka the owner Elton. Elton was very friendly and accommodating to our party even making sure we had a place to sit. He chatted with us then decided to show us some of his magic tricks.

Elton showed us magic tricks using a deck of cards and his iPhone. The whole experience was very entertaining and we tried persuading Elton to expand to the San Gabriel Valley area. The prices are affordable with the alcoholic drinks around the $8 range and the non-alcoholic around $3-$4. Since this is in downtown LA, parking is usually a struggle. There are a couple parking lots within walking vicinity so be prepared to carry cash or there is the option of metered parking. I am positive I will be coming back to try the rest of their menu and anything else they come up in their Labobatory. Thank you for reading!
