As UnCommons gets ready to open in early 2022 at the 215 Beltway and Durango Drive south of Ikea, another restaurant makes plans to debut at the $400 million, 40-acre mixed-use property. The Bay Areas Teaspoon opens its first Nevada location for boba tea.

Teaspoon specializes in boba tea concoctions such as creamy jasmine, a sweet jasmine green tea infused with cream; the Ladybug, made with passionfruit jade green tea and kumquat juice; caramel cream with caramel topped with organic milk and honey boba; and the Liquid Gold, featuring honey oolong tea and topped with cream. Customers can add honey boba in a variety of flavors such as mango, strawberry, or yogurt, or add taro chunks or egg or almond pudding. Teaspoon’s drinks can be made with organic whole milk or oat milk, and less sugar.

The shop also offers snow ice, shaved into ribbons, in flavors including nutty taro, strawberry, mango, kumquat, and the banana, mochi, Nutella, and almond flake Donkey Kong dish. The brand has also recently added mochi doughnuts, macarons, and muffins, baking, not frying, the butter-mochi snacks.

Teaspoon originally opened in 2015 and now has more than 20 locations splattered along the West Coast.

The boba shop joins an 18,000-square-foot food hall Platform One from Batch Hospitality, with dining outlets from a dozen local chefs including Geno Bernardo, who had Nove Italiano at the Palms and ran Herringbone at Aria; Claudia Andracki from Desert Bloom Eco Farm near Pahrump; Jessica Perlstein, the executive sous chef at Main St. Provisions; and Roy Ellamar, who just left Harvest at the Bellagio. Other restaurants coming to UnCommons include the first Las Vegas neighborhood location for Urth Caffé, which already has a location at Wynn, and a restaurant from chef Michael Mina and his management company Mina Group, a fast-casual, developed with partner Adam Sobel that combines “East Coast nostalgia with premium ingredients.”
