Snackshot is a new HK style dessert shop in the Marpole area. I still remember when this location was Bubble World back when I was in high school! It’s located next to Qoo Cafe on Granville and 64th. The outside doesn’t look that inviting but the decor inside is on point.
I don’t normally gravitate towards Asian desserts (I’m more into cakes and pastries) but I was interested in trying their dessert platter and the Vitasoy Bulldog drink. Also, it took me 20+ years before I could accept red bean as a dessert.
For my parent’s 25th wedding anniversary, we had a fancier dinner at Neptune Seafood Restaurant. I haven’t been here in a really long time like 5+ years. Since it was a special occasion, we went for one of their set menus. We chose one that was for 6 people when we only had 4 but it was a better deal. There was another set menu for 4 people that cost the same ($198) but with less food and they seemed quite similar too.
So I feel really guilty for this… but we had Shark Fin Soup. Dum dum dummm yes we had this prized Chinese delicacy. I’m quite impartial to shark fin soup since I don’t think the shark fin adds much to the soup in general. Also, there wasn’t even much shark fin.
