Future Froyo Shop Picture: Boba Milk PDX

Fro-yo girl here. The news about Boba Milk opening in Hawthorne broke last July. The new shop is the latest venture for the owner of Fish Sauce and Short Round (Vietnamese restaurants). Fish Sauce’s hard-scoop frozen yogurt is currently available at Short Round as well. Short Round had one flavor, peach green tea, for $4 a serving. The frozen yogurt made in house, rich in probiotics, and billed as authentically Vietnamese. Boba Milk will also offer waffle cones and bubble tea. They promise to get creative with flavors; some of the flavors they’ve created include durian, roasted beet, and jackfruit. They’re hiring, so they must be opening soon (Update: they opened on March 4. I took the picture on March 1). The windows and door are still papered over, so it’s difficult to judge how much progress has been made inside. I asked at Short Round and the employee I spoke to didn’t have any additional information.

I wonder what makes it Vietnamese? I’m guessing that it’s made with condensed milk, since Vietnamese yogurt typically is.

You know you love me. X0 X0, fro-yo girl.
