Nero Belgian Waffle Bar-Seymour St. Location

The new location of Nero Belgian Waffle Bar opened up a while back and I finally checked it out. I no longer need to trek to the West End to get my waffle fix! The new location is on the corner of Seymour and Nelson and it’s a lot more spacious aka less waiting! This Nero’s felt more cozy with the red brick-coloured walls and chair cushions; and the dim lighting. They have some snug looking window booth seats and also patio seating as well.Nero Belgian Waffle Bar

45 Degree Bubble Tea House

Disclaimer: All food/drinks were complimentary but opinions are my own

I was invited to a tasting at 45 Degree Bubble Tea House by fellow foodie Eat with Mao. With the boom in bubble tea shops over the last 2 years, I was excited to see what this one offered as they are independently owned.

45 Degree Bubble Tea House

45 Degree Bubble Tea House is located in Coal Harbour on Pender and Broughton Street. It’s on the same strip of stores as Soirette. The area is more residential and there’s less foot traffic in this area.

Candy Tree Dessert-Shaved Ice, Durian Waffles and More!

Disclaimer: All food was complimentary but opinions are my own

I was invited to another Chinese Bites event and this time we hit up Candy Tree Dessert. They are located on Kingsway near Patterson and close to the Patterson skytrain station. I knew they would offer similar desserts to Icy Bar so I was ready to embrace everything! My dessert stomach is always ready.

We were separated into 3 different tables and each table ordered their own items but I still took pictures of stuff from other tables. This place is pretty small so it’s probably best for small groups since the waits are going to be really long.

On the left we have the Durian Milkshake and on the right we have the Ferrero Rocher Milkshake. Heard good things about both! Continue reading →

Sydney Eats: Brunching at Foodcraft Espresso and Bakery

As I was researching where to eat in Sydney (because that was obviously more important than sightseeing), I noticed that they had so many more brunch places! There are cafes that are just focused on brunch and lunch and they close at night. We need more all day brunch!!! We need to start a petition!!! AHHHHHHHHHH

Foodcraft Espresso and Bakery

Foodcraft Espresso and Bakery is known for their famous Tella Ball Shakes and the Nutella one took over the internet last year. The “Tella Ball” is basically a filled doughnut. They are located on the main floor of an apartment complex. They have lots of outdoor seating available but on the day I went, it was super windy.  Continue reading →

Miura Restaurant and Bar-Rebranded

Disclaimer: All food was complimentary but opinions are my own

Thanks to Instagram foodie and food blogger, Jacqueline (Check out her blog here), I got to visit the new rebranded Miura Restaurant and Bar with some other foodies. It was formerly known as Miura Waffle and Milk Bar. They were also featured on You Gotta Eat Here! Don’t worry they still have some of their famous waffle sandwiches on the menu! As a restaurant and bar, they serve appies and entrees that are more izakaya style. Of course there are also alcoholic beverages.

Fondway Cafe-Opening Event

Disclaimer: All food was complimentary but opinions are my own

I was invited to Fondway Cafe for their media launch event  this month. Fondway Cafe used to be in Crystal Mall but they have relocated to Beresford Street which is just behind the skytrain station. The cafe is in a residential area with lots of apartments.

Fondway Cafe

The cafe is pretty quaint and kitschy looking. I love the decor here and they have high ceilings which makes it look more spacious. I can see myself hanging out here with some girl friends! They also have some interesting art painted on the wall.  Continue reading →

Styo-Parfaits

I saw before that Styo had a SocialShopper deal going on but I didn’t get it because usually whenever I buy these deals I don’t end up using them but I think I could’ve in this case! Styo serves froyo parfaits and other froyo desserts as well as waffles and smoothies.

I like how they have a blue theme going on since I’m super biased and blue is my favourite color. Seating is pretty minimal though.

Beard Papa’s-Waffles!

I am still obsessed with waffles so I was ecstatic when I saw pictures of heart shaped waffles from Beard Papa’s new location! They closed down their stall in Richmond Centre and now they have an actual store in the same complex as London Drugs on No. 3 Road.

The space inside is bright and clean and would be a great place to hang out with friends. There’s also an ample amount of seating as well. With their floor to ceiling windows, it’s easy to entice passerby’s to come in!

Beard Papa's

This was the Green Tea and Matcha Waffle and I’ve seen a lot of pictures of it since Beard Papa’s has opened. I loved how they’re in heart shapes and they were nice and chewy! I would totally come back for this.

Beard Papa's The Green Tea Fondant was not as good though. They display it in their fridge case and then they warm it up for you after you order it so that the fondant is melty although it really was just lukewarm. The cake part was strangely dense and chewy but sorta spongey? The green tea lava inside had a strong green tea flavour as advertised. The cake texture was not appetizing though so I wouldn’t get this again.

In addition to their signature cream puffs, they also have some other desserts in a display case now like small cakes and tiramisu.

Miura Waffle and Milk Bar

I decided to grab lunch at Miura Waffle and Milk Bar since it was conveniently close to work.

Miura Waffle and Milk Bar

I settled on the Garlic Fried Chicken which was served with lettuce, teriyaki sauce and mayo. The portion is large and very filling. I was really looking forward to the garlic fried chicken since you know I love fried chicken! However, the chicken seemed to be under seasoned and there really wasn’t any garlic flavour which was disappointing.

The waffles are American style and they are quite soft so the last piece tends to get a bit soggy if you eat slow. I think it was alright but didn’t quite hit the mark this time for me.

Their restaurant seems to be quite empty though no matter what time it is. Read about my last visit here and here.

Nero Belgian Waffle Bar Revisit!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

In case you didn’t already know, I have a love affair with waffles :3 Naturally I fell in love with Nero’s after my first visit and I got the chance to visit again last weekend! It was a dreary rainy day and after my brunch with Carmen (check out her blog CuriouslyCarmen!), we went to Nero’s! Yes I always have room for dessert. =)

Luckily nobody was there and there was no line up! Woot! Seriously it’s like a small victory to me everytime I go somewhere with no line up haha The space is tiny inside and you can expect line ups during peak hours for sure so if you’re reading this, it’s probably not a good idea to rush there for Valentine’s day…

Nero Belgian Waffle Bar

The special of the day was the Liege au Chocolat which we decided to try. The waffle comes with raspberries, a scoop of vanilla ice cream and plenty of dark chocolate drizzle. It just looked so beautiful! <3 Waffle will you be my valentine?

The waffle was crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside and the toppings went really well together. I like how the warm chocolate solidified on the cold ice cream. The raspberries were plump and offset the sweetness from the chocolate and of course ice cream goes well with any dessert!

You really must come here at least once if you love waffles! Read about my first visit here!
