Afternoon tea is the perfect time to catch up with friends. Since both Ms Liao and I live in Burnaby, we decided to try the afternoon tea offerings from November Dessert. Located a few doors away from Sugar Lab, November Dessert is a new dessert cafe in the Royal Oak area. They offer a half-size and a full-size afternoon tea set. Let’s take a look at what’s included!
La Forêt cafe is one of the newest addition to the Metrotown neighbourhood in Burnaby. From all the beautiful photos on Instagram, it looked like it has an extensive menu of sweet and savoury foods. So I recently visited twice to check out their space and offerings.
Sugar Lab is one of the dessert places that have recently opened up in Burnaby. They are especially known for their mille crêpe cakes. Besides cakes, Sugar Lab also have other shaved ice, Chinese sweet soups and a variety of milk teas and slushy drinks. Curious to see how their cakes and desserts compare to others, I visited Sugar Lab twice recently with Mr. Chau. Take a look at the items we’ve tried.
The newly opened Dosanko restaurant in Vancouver caught my attention because they serve home-style Japanese food instead of sushi or ramen. So I took Mr. Chau there for lunch to check out their menu. We’re hoping to find some of the flavours we’ve had in Japan at Dosanko. Unfortunately, I didn’t take a photo of their lunch menu. So I’ll be taking a guess at what some of the ingredients are for each of the dishes mentioned here.
The first Starbucks Reserve in Western Canada opened in Vancouver in May 2017. Besides their normal menu, you can also get affogatos and cold brew floats which are unique to this location. But it was the experience bar that drew us to visit. This is where you can watch the Coffee Masters brew coffee using methods such as Siphon and Clover brewing techniques. Sounds interesting right?! Let’s take a look the Siphon Brewing method!
Hey there, I’m Jan. I have a major sweet tooth and believe the best way to experience different cultures is through the stomach. The kitchen is my playground where I try to recreate some of the delicious dishes I ate. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy reading my travel and dining stories!
PS: I’m slowly migrating my recipes from my old site so check back often. 🙂
