Bếp Nhà BBQ sells 2-compartment boba 

To appeal to local boba fans, most boba stores in Saigon differentiate themselves through distinctive flavors, diverse toppings, or affordable pricing. From weight-loss milk tea to boba loaded with unconventional toppings, this boba-loving city has many versions of this popular Taiwanese tea-based drink. 

However, Bếp Nhà BBQ, a homegrown dessert store, has been trending among local foodies thanks to its unique packaging that gives you bang for your buck.

With two compartments each, one boba cup comes with two different flavors. What’s more, you can top your boba cup with a portion of tasty snacks for a fulfilling all-in-one dessert fix.

Equipped with small-sized round tables that fit two persons each, Bếp Nhà BBQ is better suited for diners in small groups. If you’re keen to host a large gathering here, call the place in advance to book a reservation.

Despite its simple appearance and lack of air conditioning, Bếp Nhà BBQ always packs a full house thanks to its amazing offerings of hearty treats.

Let’s jump right into this eatery’s signature item that are all the rage with local boba fans: two-compartment bubble tea (VND49,000,~USD2.16).

Drawing inspiration from two-compartment hotpots, Bếp Nhà BBQ uses two-compartment cups to store two different types of drinks. This option allows you to enjoy different boba flavors in one cup and saves you the trouble of holding cups of icy boba tea in both hands.

For extra sumptuousness, you can also order a separate yet attachable bowl of savory snacks such as grilled sausages, crispy french fries, or deep-fried fish balls on top. 

Now you can hold a multi-tiered go-to treat in one hand and gobble up your food with the other hand.

In case a multi-compartment boba feels a bit encumbering or you want to stick to one flavor in one cup, there are also many bubble tea options in normal cups ranging from VND35,000-VND45,000 (~USD1.54-USD1.98).

While Bếp Nhà BBQ’s unique packaging alone deserves praise, its food offerings are no less impressive.

The house has a plethora of crowd-pleasing options, from bitter-sweet Milo to licorice-flavored brown sugar to refreshing matcha. When it comes to customizing your drinks with toppings, you’ll find a myriad of unique boba rarely seen anywhere else. 

Instead of munching on classic bouncy tapioca balls, toss in pudding ramen and mini egg jelly (VND15,000, ~USD0.66) to add an innovative texture and flavor to your drinks. The springy texture of ramen, the tangy taste of eggs, coupled with the melt-in-your-mouth creaminess of pudding, can give your boba a rollercoaster of flavors.

Aside from boba, the house also dishes out plenty of sweet treats, such as bean curd and yogurt. 

For a lovely treat that you can bring home and gift your loved ones, check out the house’s broad selection of candies stored in animal-shaped boxes that are priced from VND65,000 (~USD2.86).

Bouncy and delicious, the deep-fried fish balls served with homemade sauce are highly recommended by local foodies.
