UYU Ice Cream Parlour

    UYU Ice Cream 
    Address: 433 Abbott St, Vancouver, BC V6B 1R3

Another ice cream parlour popped up in the Gastown area!

This cute little shop serves soft served ice cream made with organic milk. You can choose from a variety of different toppings such as nuts, granola and freeze dried fruits. They also have different sauces that you can drizzle over your ice cream. 

A and I decided to try out UYU after our big meal at the Afghan Horsemen. I was super excited to try this new ice cream parlour because they had Thai Iced Tea soft serve (at least that's what I saw on Instagram) but once we arrived their two feature flavour was Matcha and Pumpkin Spice. Apparently UYU changes their flavours every so often - which means they might not be making Thai Ice Tea soft serve for awhile... sigh. The guy working there did tell us that their upcoming flavours would be Tiramisu and Earl Grey - which sounds really good too! 

Anyways, A tried their Pumpkin Spice soft serve topped with pistachio bark and toasted sunflower seeds and drizzled with honey sauce. I had their Original soft serve (because they ran out of Matcha) topped with coconut crisps, freeze dried raspberries and drizzled with raspberry sauce. It was a very nice refreshing dessert to help us digest all the meat we at at the Afghan Horsemen.

Would I go back? Of course! At least until I get a chance to try their Thai Iced Tea soft serve!
UYU, if you are reading this - please let me know when you make your THAI ICED TEA SOFT SERVE AGAIN!


Bye for now!

Well Tea

Central Richmond › 4811 Hazelbridge Way, Richmond

A big thank you to KLIP Magazine for inviting me to Well Tea's Tasting Menu.

Well Tea located in Richmond is on its way to celebrating their 10 year anniversary with delicious new drinks and new items on their menu! I can't believe its been this long already! I remember when  my friends and I first came here to study during exams because it was one of the few bubble tea places that opened late besides Blenz - which was always packed with students. And to be honest I much prefer a Milk Tea Slush and Deep Fried Chicken Nuggets over a cup of coffee any day - especially when I needed to study.

One of my favourite items on their Tasting Menu is the Wasabi Chicken topped with fresh cucumber and scallions. The chicken is cooked in a seasoned broth and then served cold with a touch of wasabi to liven it up. 

Next on the list is a snack that I always order with my bubble tea!
Scallion Pancake wrapped with Beef and Fresh Cucumbers served with their famous Garlic Sauce.

Who can guess what this is?

This is another feature item on their New Tasting Menu.
Deep Fried Pork Knuckles infused with Tea Leaves - Feeling adventurous? Give this dish a try!

Last but not least, Well Tea's famous House Special Milk Tea!


Happy Eating!
