I was in Isla Visa recently and encountered a restaurant that had slipped under my radar. Wake Cup at 901 Embarcadero del Mar apparently opened as a Taiwanese-styled boba tea house in January 2016 then transformed into a Taiwanese restaurant along the way, while retaining a selection of teas. Wake Cup is owned and operated by UCSB alumni and current students. The menu includes teas, milk teas, bowls (beef, pork, and chicken), kebabs, golden buns, fried chicken wings, popcorn chicken, Taiwanese sausage, and fried squid balls. Call 869-1586.
