Cremo Thai Tea Ice-Cream

I love Thai ice tea and when I stumbled upon Cremo’s Thai Tea ice-cream, I had to get my hands on it.

The ice-cream is a bright orange colour, similar to the beverage. There are also tapioca pearls embedded into the ice-cream, which adds a nice texture to the delicious ice-cream.

Taste wise, it taste similar to the drink but sweeter and creamier. I recommend this to those who enjoy Thai ice-tea. I purchased this at T&T supermarket but I’ve also seen it at Price Smart Foods.

Still Here

I apologize for the lack of post, I’ve been quite busy with work lately, working 8 hours shift everyday. School starts in two weeks and I still haven’t gotten my textbooks… :S

I just wanted to share a picture of my first funnel cake I had at The Fair at the PNE:

They had a few flavours including maple bacon and strawberry, but I went for the original. It was tasty, but I think I was too full from my meal to enjoy it. My only complaint is that there was too much powdered sugar, it got very messy to eat. No where better to try my first funnel cake than at the Fair! I will be posting more about PNE, so check back soon 🙂

Macarons from Faubourg

After afternoon tea, I decided to get some macarons. Macarons are a relatively new addition to Faubourg, so I wanted to see how it compared to other places in Vancouver.

They have a good selection of flavours and look aesthetically pleasing.

Here are the flavours I purchased:

I got Tahitian vanilla, hazelnut praline, Faubourg signature and pistachio.

My favouritre flavours were the hazelnut praline and Tahitian vanilla. I can’t recall how the faubourg signature tasted, but it was a bit fruity. Size wise, they are a good size; not too small nor too big and they had a nice crisp exterior with a chewy interior.

Overall, I would rank their macaron as above average but my favourite macarons are from Bel Cafe and Soirette 🙂

 

Weekend Randoms

This week has been an eventful week. I watched Bourne Legacy with S.A.W and L, and I was a bit disappointed. The only thing I really enjoyed about the movie was Jeremey Renner… LOL.  I am also no longer unemployed, which I am happy about. Here are some pictures of my week from my phone:

{Got a surprise visit from Yuki. Doesn’t she looks adorable in this picture?}

{My dad found his old SLR camera and I’ve been playing around with}

 {Earl Grey tea and rosewater macaron’s from Leonidas}

{Watermelon, taro, green tea and original flavour frozen yogurt from yogen fruz. I love the new Yogen Fruz on Robson street!}

Hope everyone has a good weekend and thanks for reading!

Recent Aldo Accessories Purchase

Just wanted to share some accessories I bought from Aldo Accessories and my experience with it..

I bought a studded bracelet (which came in a pack of 2) and a cross knuckle ring. Having chubby fingers, I have a hard time finding knuckle rings that fit me, but I was ecstatic when I found this one with an adjustable band. Having said that, right as I was about to take it out of the packaging and wear it, the ring broke. This has happened to me before with a ring from Aldo, but for the price, I wasn’t expecting much. Nothing some glue can’t fix! I’m happy with the studded bracelets though, I’ve been searching everywhere for something similar.

 

Fray

Es S had a voucher for Fray, so I gladly accepted her invitation for some eating. According to their website, Fray is a” community eatery focusing on local, fresh ingredients, reasonable prices, creative comfort food, ice cold microbrew beer, delicious mixed drinks, and desserts that will make you swear internally.”

We started off with some appetizers:

Our first appetizer to arrive was the rosemary chipsa bowl of house-cut lightly fried potatoe and taro chips. I really wanted to like this, but it was way too salty and I couldn’t detect any rosemary taste. I overheard the table beside us complaining about the saltiness too, so if you order this, ask for it unsalted and add your own salt.

Our second appetizer was the portobello fries a jenga stack of lightly fried breaded mushroom strip with truffle aioli.  This is their signature dish, and it definitely did not disappoint! The meaty strips of breaded mushrooms were so delicious and cooked perfectly. A must try at Fray!

Winding Down

I apologize for the lack of post this week. I had my final exam on Wednesday and I also joined a gym, so I’ve been working out for most of the week. Here’s a recap of my week via cell phone photos.

{This was last week, chicken burrito from Roundel Cafe}

{Uncle gave my family some fresh clams}

{The Peak radio station was doing a promotional event by my dads shop and were giving out free hot dogs. My dad told the DJ that I listen to their station so the gave me a free Foster the People CD :)}

{The gym I joined is located near the water and I get to see a beautiful view of North Vancouver and West Vancouver after my workouts}

{Dinner at Angel Cafe. They have a really good dinner deal}

So that was my week. I hope everyone has a good weekend!

Afternoon Tea at Faubourg

Back in April (I know, I’m really late on my food posts), S.A.W, Bill Gates daughter and I met up at Faubourg for high tea. We were contemplating between Adonia and Faubourg, but settled for the latter. This was S.A.W. and I’s first experience for high tea, and of course this does not apply to Bill Gates daughters, as her parents are very generous with her allowance.

The restaurant/ high tea area is located in the back of the place and is elegantly decorated with a beautiful chandelier. I particularly enjoyed the chairs, the china was also quite nice.

We went for the Pink afternoon tea, which included your choice of tea, sandwiches and pastries for $25.50. I thought it was a tad pricey, especially for a student like myself, but it ended up being quite filling. The high tea here is cheaper than many places, take Fairmount for example.

The server brought out samples of their tea offerings for us to smell. There were quite a few choices, so it took us a while to decide what to get.

S.A.W and I both ended up choosing the Earl Grey tea as our choice of tea. I don’t recall what Bill Gates daughter choice, I believe it was a fruity tea. Two Earl Grey tea bags were placed into a pot of hot water and water is refilled upon request.
