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.Continue reading “ThirsTea Vancouver (賊好喝)”
Right across the Boiling Point in Richmond, there is a new-ish bubble tea shop, Bobii Frutii. It is originated from Taiwan and, this is the first Canadian store. They specializes in photogenic bubble tea with no preservatives, stabilizers, or artificial coloring. In addition, all drinks are served with their signature pearls, original, brown sugar, or butterfly pea flavour. Few days ago, I was invited to a media tasting, and I was very excited to try out their drinks to see if they are worth the hype.Continue reading “Bobii Frutii”

I would like to introduce you all to my new favourite restaurant in Steveston, Richmond – Chef’s Playground Eatery. Since I wanted to fully enjoy the sunshine, my friend decided to drive to Steveston, and here we are concluding our night with this fabulous dinner.
Steveston is full of hidden gem, and this restaurant is particularly unique. The restaurant is cozy. I love their open kitchen a lot! There are only two people running the restaurant, the chef and the server! I was very impressed that they still manage to serve the food in a timely manner. Chef told us that their menu changes seasonally, or whenever he felt like it. And more importantly, from the balsamic glaze to the syrup of the drinks, they are all made IN HOUSE!
Are you sick of the regular breakfast with sunny-side up eggs, bacon, and toast? What about trying an authentic experience Chinese breakfast? Lu Charcoal Grill in Richmond serves a Tianjin-style breakfast, and some of the famous items would be Jian Bing (also known as Chinese crêpes), Scallion Pancake, Tea Eggs, and Handmade Wonton, etc.
Mille crêpe cake seems to be the current dessert trend in Vancouver. Recently, there are three stores, with similar concept, caught my attention – L’OTUS Cake Boutique, Sugar Lab, and Miss Lina Crêpe Cake. Therefore, my friends and I plan to go for a crêpe cakes hunt to see which one is the best. And first location would be L’OTUS Cake Boutique.
It is a famous dessert cafe in Richmond. They are known for the freshly made mille crêpe cake, as well as serving tea espresso-based beverages. I previously went there for 3 times, and they were sold out of cakes. So this time, we reserved a table of four and some cakes to start off. We went there around 3pm on a weekday, so most of the flavors were still in stock. And we ordered four flavors in total – Fresh Strawberry, Blue Earl Grey, 64% Dark Chocolate , and Black Sesame.

What is better than a cup of latte? A photogenic latte with beautiful latte art. Richmond recently opens a cafe, Zenstone Coffee. And they are famous for their latte art and specialty coffees, such as Purple Yam Latte and Citrus Black Sesame Latte.
Richmond is an area that lacks of cafe, or just anywhere to sit down and chill with friends. Instead, we mostly hang out in pools and dart places. This simple café just makes me want to go to Richmond more now! When I first walked in, it gives me a very peaceful feeling. It is bright and quiet, which is definitely a very nice place for me to study or to write my blog. Continue reading “Zenstone Coffee”
