More boba tea to flow downtown

A boba tea shop called Lazi Cow is brewing up plans for 407 G St., Suite 4. Construction is scheduled to start this week, with the goal to open in August. The space was last occupied by Quick Clean laundry and dry cleaning.

I spoke with Jimmy Phu, who owns Lazi Cow with fellow Southern California residents Camille Wozumi and Robert Dao. The Los Angeles resident said he wanted to open a boba tea shop there, but the market is saturated. A friend attending UC Davis convinced him to come here.

Lazi Cow will have the popular tapioca teas, plus offer pastries like Taiwanese brick toast. Brick toast is made with large chunks of stacked, dense white bread (found in Asian markets). It’s described as a combination of French toast, bread pudding and crème brulee, often topped or filled with goodies like whipped cream, custard, syrup, fruit or ice cream.

Meanwhile, it looks like plans fell through for the Bear Factory Tea Lounge in Westlake Plaza, which was to have a similar concept. The signs have been removed.

According to the city of Davis’ June 2 newsletter, the city granted tenant improvement permits for two innovation businesses: Agrinos and BioConsortia.

Agrinos, a global biotech company from Norway, is establishing a new research and development office at 279 Cousteau Place. The company is a “biological crop input provider committed to improving the productivity and sustainability of modern agriculture,” the newsletter said.

BioConsortia discovers and develops “innovative microbial communities” for seed treatments or soil additives, designed to improve crop trait performance and increase yield.

In addition, Marrone Bio Innovations submitted plans for building improvements for its new headquarters on Drew Avenue.  The company, which develops natural pesticides, is at 2121 Second St.

Coldwell Banker Doug Arnold Real Estate is adding a new building to its property at Second and D streets. The 4,000-square-foot-plus building will replace much of the lawn at that corner. It will feature 15 offices, two conference rooms and a terrace on the second floor, according to last Sunday’s story in The Enterprise. Construction was scheduled to begin last week.

Davis Noodle City recently changed hands — but the menu hasn’t. The ramen restaurant is at 129 E St., Suite D-1. The new owner is listed as Qiu Hua Deng.

There is a new business license for University Wireless for 130 G St., Suite D. The last business there was French Cuff Consignment.

French Cuff has a store in Sacramento. When the Davis store closed, the owner said it was moving to another site in town, but those plans haven’t materialized.

After a normal business day Sunday, Armadillo Music will pack up its collection and move two doors down, to the former nestware spot at 207 F St.

Armadillo will be closed Monday and Tuesday, reopening Wednesday in the new location. An official grand opening party is planned for Saturday.

Armadillo has been at 205 F St. for 17 years, and outgrew it, owner Josh Chapman said. The new spot has about a third more space, which allows him to expand the inventory and provide a slightly larger stage for occasional performances.
