Grand Central Market’s latest addition, Moon Rabbit, is an all-around star. Inspired by boba shops in the San Gabriel Valley, Moon Rabbit specializes in teas and small snacks, like bánh mì filled with grilled pork and Japanese-style chicken katsu sandwiches. But the main event is their teas, which range from bright-orange Thai teas to jasmine greens and boba-filled rose blacks. With plenty of non-dairy options, they’re like Naomi Osaka on a good day - a wide range of talents, few weaknesses, and a fierce but cute aesthetic that just won’t quit.
