How about a dessert in liquid form? Dreamy Drinks, which bills itself as Seattle’s first bubble tea truck, opened in 2019. The owners are originally from the Bay Area, where there’s a bubble tea shop on practically every corner. To fill that gap in the Seattle market, they came up with a mobile bubble tea shop in a cute pink truck that comes to your neighborhood.
The truck broke down at the end of 2020 (insert bad 2020 joke here) but we’re happy to report that Dreamy Drinks is rolling again, with pop-ups from Lynnwood to Renton. In addition to bubble tea, you can order espresso drinks and smoothies. The smoothies and slushies are made with real fruit instead of just powder and sugar; my kids’ favorite is the taro smoothie ($5.50/medium). Another popular drink for kids is the sparking soda made with edible glitter!
Find it: You can find the pop-up schedule on the Dreamy Drinks website, follow the truck on Instagram, and even place your order ahead of time to skip the line. Delivery is available on Doordash on weekends.
