Yeah and I usually like it! A lot of people don't because its not what they were expecting. It kind of like a less dense smoothie with a giant straw to suck up the tapioca balls at the bottom. The tapioca is pretty flavorless, and kind of fun if you ask me :) But it depends on where you get it, some places its really good, some places its nasty.
I love Anthony Bourdain by the way!
