El Dorado Pie & Treats-Lonsdale Quay

I hardly ever go to North Van or Lonsdale Quay so I couldn’t quite remember what they had in the food court there. I actually wanted to go to The Coffee Bun Bakery but they are closed on Sundays so I wandered around and El Dorado Pie & Treats caught my eye. It was either that or crepes. You know I have a sweet tooth!

MagiCream-This Ice Cream is Amazeballs

Disclaimer: All food was complimentary but opinions are my own

Foodgressing was organizing a media tasting on behalf of MagiCream and kindly invited me to go! I had seen a few photos on Instagram but I hadn’t really heard much else about them. They seem to be the only liquid nitrogen ice cream shop not located in downtown. They are in Kerrisdale to be exact. Little did I know, I was about to be impressed.

Qoola Food Truck-Popsicles

I was visiting the YVR Outlet when I spotted the Qoola food truck parked outside. It was a somewhat warm day so I made a beeline there to see what they offered.

Qoola Food Truck

Clearly I wasn’t the only one interested because they had a steady stream of customers.  Continue reading →

Snowy Village Robson-Croissant Taiyaki

After my tasting at Spaghetei, I walked up to the fairly new Snowy Village location on Robson because we had been talking about it and I wanted to try their taiyaki (the Japanese fish shaped pancake with filling).

Snowy Village

This location wasn’t that busy at all! I’ve heard about the outrageous line ups at their original location in Richmond so I’ve never tried it. Continue reading →

Baker’s Krate-Subscription Dessert Box Review

My friend kindly sent me the Baker’s Krate box last month for my birthday and boy was I excited to receive it! To be fair, it was sitting at the post office for a few days before I went to pick it up because I missed it at my house…

Baker's Krate

Baker’s Krate selects different hand-crafted baked goods from all across Canada to ship to you every month. Sounds delicious already right? The treats they selected for August were right up my alley!

Trees Organic Coffee-National Cheesecake Day

Did you know there’s a food holiday for every day of the year? Sadly there aren’t enough restaurants that celebrate them or it would be too costly. For National Cheesecake Day this year (July 28th), Trees Organic Coffee offered cheesecakes for 50% off!

Trees Organic Coffee

They are voted Vancouver’s best cheesecake and they have a few locations around Vancouver. I went to the one on Granville Street beside Waterfront station. I love discounts/freebies (especially when it comes to food) and it’s close to where I work so I had to go! I thought there would be some crazy line ups but it was pretty tame. The wait was about 15 minutes or so. This is in contrast to that time I waited for an hour at IHOP for National Pancake Day (NEVER AGAIN).

Popbar-Gelato on a Stick

Popbar opened a few months ago and has taken over the spot where Beard Papa’s used to be, next to Superstore in Metrotown. I must say that I was not initially too excited about the concept, I mean I love ice cream/gelato and cold confections but for some reason, it didn’t seem to have the “wow” factor?

Popbar

I saw on Facebook that they had a promotion where if you liked their page you get 30% off so that’s what prompted my visit. Or should I say, I “popped” in? ;) The promotion ended on July 31st but maybe they’ll have more in the future. Continue reading →

Bella Gelateria-Coal Harbour

It’s summer (finally!) and that means that I will be eating lots of ice cream! I can see the long line ups at Bella Gelateria from my office and it gets pretty tempting to go! Well ok I wouldn’t go with the long line ups because I’m impatient but I can check when they are short and then I’ll go. Also, by long line ups, I mean it wraps around the block…

Despite all their gelato awards, I did learn that there was a down side to their gelato.

Mister-Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream

Mister is the newest liquid nitrogen ice cream place in town. Specifically Yaletown and it’s really the second liquid nitrogen ice cream place we have in Vancouver with the first being Lik N2 Ice Cream. Mister has taken over Sweet Bake Shop’s old spot and it’s just across from the skytrain station.

Mister

Their store is very minimalistic looking and sparsely decorated. Their logo is equally simple, just a blue pentagon. Mister currently has four flavours: avocado, creme brule, dark chocolate and lemon FY. Seems like there is space on their menu for more new flavours.  Continue reading →

LIK N2 Ice Cream

LIK N2 Ice Cream

It’s finally warm in Vancouver and that means I’ll be eating a lot of ice cream! LIK N2 Ice Cream is one of the newest ice cream places to open up and they specialize in liquid nitrogen ice cream. They are located next to 7-11 on Robson and Hamilton, beside the library.
