New tea and poke establishments planned for Mission Viejo
A new tea and coffee establishment is set to open in The Shops at Mission Viejo. ComeBuy Tea features an array of teas including milk and fruit teas with your choice of toppings. On the mall's lower level near the center court, the store is expected to open by the end of the year. Started in Taiwan, this new location is one of the first in the United States. More information is available at www.comebuyteausa.com.
Along with tea, poke lovers will rejoice over the new Poki Cat opening soon in Plaza Alicia at 23981 Alicia Parkway. Diners can opt for made-to-order fresh poke bowls and burritos. This will be the eatery’s fourth SoCal location.
