Purple Kow

Purple Kow

My friend who goes to school in San Francisco kept raving about this place and demanding on taking me.  We finally got there and man, it was crowded!  There was a line all the way to the door and she said this is a good day.  Usually the line's out the door.  Crazy packed!

Super small space + lots of people =  fight for your right to sit at a table.  When I saw a group about to leave I ran over and hawked over the table.

There drinks come in shorter, wider cups which is unique but also annoying since it doesn't fit in the cup holders in cars.  Yay to holding drinks!

The milk teas are alright, but in my opinion, not enough to rave about!  I need my milk tea to have a strong tea flavor and Purple Kow didn't quite cut it.

The popcorn chicken was quite good!  Crispy and salty..mm...

Beef rolls were alright but nothing special.  You can actually just go to any Asian market and easily assemble you own beef roll.  And even better, you won't have to be stingy about how much beef goes in it!

I would say "ehh" about this place.  The main thing is it's just way to packed to sit and have a nice chat with friends, it's like a war zone!  But if you are lucky to get a seat and well, you have large cup holders in your car, your good to go
