BETA 5 x Constellation Inspiration: Cream Puff Collaboration

It was hectic last week because BETA 5 collaborated with Amy from Constellation Inspiration and launched three feature cream puffs. These three new flavors made most Vancouverites go crazy on pre-orders and lineups, just to get their hands on them. But one question always pops up – are they worth the hype? To answer this question, I gave myself an excuse to preorder all three flavors and tried them out.

Macaron Class at Bon Macaron Patisserie

Macarons are one of the most delicate and difficult desserts to master, and I have failed quite a few times and still wasn’t successful until recently.

Gyo Para Gyoza & Ramen Bar

When it comes to ramen, there are many options in Vancouver, and some taste better than the others. For example, you can always see a long line up at Ramen Danbo regardless of time and day.

Eclettico Art & Coffee

Recently, a hidden cafe is newly opened on Fraser Street – Eclettico Art & Coffee. It combines art and coffee together, which brings customers a unique experience as if they are in Italy. When I first entered the cafe, I was attracted by the rustic red wall, with a copper Italian coffee machine at the counter. It has a chic, retro design. The cafe is attached with a small art museum at the back, where drawings, all drawn by the owner, are hung on the wall. It is also where the owner teaches water-coloring classes. In addition to the artistic ambiance, there is a piano at the front for a pianist comes every weekend to perform live music.

ThirsTea Vancouver (賊好喝)

Every month, there is at least one new bubble tea shop opening in Vancouver, and as a foodie, I can barely keep up with the names of the shops, or even which place tastes the best. Once in a while, there is one that catches my attention, and I am about to introduce you to one of my recent favourites. To be honest, I think the quality from this new shop beats some of the bigger brands out there.
