812 Cake & Dessert

Every year, I would choose a different place to order a cake for my mom’s birthday, and this year, I chose 812 Cake & Dessert. I came here with my friends before, when they first opened. We ordered most of the flavors in the shelf, so I thought my mom would love this place as well. 812 Cake & Dessert is a Korean-owned cake shop near Gilmore. Their cakes overall are on a lighter side, and they have a large variety of beverage selections.

During my first visit, we ordered Tiramisu, Blueberry Cheese, Sweet Potato, and Salted Caramel. Flavors come in a rotational basis, so I am sure you will never get bored of the cakes here. As for the second visit, I ordered Strawberry for my mom’s birthday cake.

Yama Cafe

If you are ever looking for cafes to satisfy your matcha crave, Yama Cafe would be the go-to place.  Formerly known as Basho Cafe, Yama Cafe is a cozy Japanese cafe, which retained almost the same menu and atmosphere from before. It serves breakfast and  lunch sets, afternoon sweets, and a large selection of beverages. And more importantly, they are ALL gluten-free and made in-house.

I love studying and grabbing a snack or two from here. Though the cafe can get pretty busy, it is never too loud to a point that I would get distracted. I was back again for a media event to discover more on the menu and this cozy cafe itself.

[PERMANENTLY CLOSED] Food Crawl Stop #4 – Candy Tree Dessert

It has been awhile since I last update on our Food Crawl that happened back in January. But here I am, back on track! Candy Tree Dessert was our first dessert stop, after all those savory dishes from Hoi An Cafe, CHAU Veggie Express, and Sushi by Yuji. It is located in South Burnaby, and it specializes in Asian-style desserts, such as waffles, shaved ice, and sweet soup (糖水), etc. And we were here to try out its Durian Waffle Tower.

After we ordered, we then realized that all six of us are not a fan of durian at all, so I guess this is a food challenge!  Continue reading “[PERMANENTLY CLOSED] Food Crawl Stop #4 – Candy Tree Dessert”

On Yogurt

Who wants to stay healthy, but can still eat delicious desserts? On Yogurt is one of the options in Yaletown. This is where I first tried ice fried yogurt. It is absolutely cool to watch the progress of making it, and more importantly, it is gluten-free and organic. For the past years, their menu expands to also include drinks, waffles, pastry, and bubble teas. This tiny shop just brings dessert to a whole new level. Continue reading “On Yogurt”
