Recently I’ve been in a bit of a rut in terms of eating out. I’ve been going to the same places over and over again because of convenience and I haven’t had time to check out some new places. This all changed when I went out with M over the weekend! Not only did I go to a new place for dinner, we also checked … Continue reading Coffee Monster

There was a good chocolate and coffee … Continue reading Sugar Lab

I haven’t been back in a very long time, so I was excited to see if it was as good as I … Continue reading Cafe de l’Orangerie
Dessert Dynasty is my favourite childhood bubble tea shop. I used to always come here to get their Mango Slush with pearls. This is the only place I order bubble tea with pearls (I know!). Their pearls are always perfectly cooked with a slight sweetness. I was really craving it one weekend so I made it all the way out to Metrotown to get this! … Continue reading Dessert Dynasty
