I’M A BUBBLE TEA BARISTA NOW?? | New year, new career. I’m your friendly neighbourhood bubble tea barista now 😂
___

To celebrate @xingfutang_canada’s GRAND OPENING on Saturday the 19th, we got a chance to go behind the counter and make an authentic stir fried brown sugar bubble tea!! 😊👏🏻
___

Thank you Nelson for inviting us in! It was an honour to stand right alongside Nelson, the owner of 幸福堂 branch in Canada, to assemble the best brown sugar bbt in town! 真的很感谢你的热情 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
___

I learned that we start with pearls that are stir fried with top grade certified brown sugar, then milk, and topped with a delicious foam, sprinkled with brown sugar powder, and TORCHED!! So much care and high quality ingredients go into it, no wonder it’s good 🤤🤤🤤

Have you tried it yet?? 😋 #xingfutangcanada_grandopening

I’M CHEESIN’ | because I came across this HIDDEN GEM! These cheese tarts are easy to get, more affordable, AND delish 😊👏🏻
___

At @stgermainbakery, you can find these delicious MOLTEN CHEESE TARTS! $2.50 for one or $13.50 for six 🤤🤤🤤

They have a nice cheesy flavour and taste especially nice if you eat them hot. We heated them up before eating and it just melts in your mouth 🤤
___

IT’S ABOUT TIME FOR CHATIME | Chatime has finally released their NEW brown sugar pearl latte!!! 😱
___

Starting TODAY, at 3pm daily @chatimebc will be releasing a LIMITED batch of 1,200! Available at chatime locations all over Metro Vancouver 😊👍🏻
___

So on to the important part, how did it taste?? I felt like it was really similar in taste to Coco, there’s a slight burnt sugar/caramel essence to it. The portion of pearls and brown sugar syrup is smaller than other places. Overall, just okay 😊
___

Have you tried this one yet?? What did you think 😋

I MISS THIS SO MOCHI | One of the most incredible desserts at the Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo Japan, the ichigo daifuku!! 🤤🍓
___

Ichigo Daifuku いちご大福 is also known as Strawberry Mochi. In this dessert, the mochi must be chunky and squishy and chewy 🤤
___

If you visit Japan, you need to try this @tsukiji.japan!! Here we are trying the MATCHA and PEACH flavoured mochi 😍
___

Which flavour of mochi would you pick?? Matcha, original, purple yam, peach, strawberry....🤭

I LOVED THIS VERY MOCHI | Can’t say this is NEW but it is a well loved dessert over the years 😂
___

@meetfreshvancouver is located in the same Richmond complex as Bubble World, right beside Yi Fang!
___

What’s your favourite thing to get here? Mine is the Meet Fresh Signature! It has delicious taro mochi balls, herbal jelly, herbal sugar powder underneath, and a milk drizzle 🤤

INTEA IS IN WITH THE TRENDS | because they’ve come out with a NEW brown sugar tea latte! 🤭
___

@intea_rmd is located on the 2nd floor of Aberdeen Square, take cash only and specialize in fruity drinks. But this time I went to try their NEW BROWN SUGAR BBT!
___

The pearls are more on the chewy side rather than some of the other softer ones I’ve tasted. The milk is pretty good. Overall, it’s good but not the best I’ve ever had. The cup and portion is a bit small though. 😋
___

So have you tried this one yet?? Which brown sugar is your fave rn 😜😜😜

MY EYES POPPED | when I saw how juicy the fried chicken was! NEW and FIRST @popeyeslouisianakitchen in Metro Vancouver!! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻🤤
___

Now open in Port Coquitlam, it’s quite a ways away but looks like lots of people are making the drive - it was packed when I went! 🤭
___

Along with the fried chicken, there are also lots of sides to choose from - onion rings, mac n cheese, cajun fries, and lots more!! The sides I tried were ok but I have to say the fried chicken is really good 😊👍🏻
___

Have you been yet? What’s your fave fried chicken place?? 😜

THIS IS STACKED | OMG is that a PANCAKE SANDWICH of egg, potato, bacon, and sausage?? Did the food at this NEW breakfast restaurant meet my eggspectations?? 🤷🏻‍♀️🥞🍳🥓
___

So this is my second time visiting @eggspectation.vancouver and I have to say, the food has improved. The egg omelette with salsa and avo was really yummy. The pancake has a lot of great components to it, perhaps the batter could be more milky. 👍🏻
___

Also it was packed in there when we went!! Have you been yet?? What’s your favourite breakfast food 😋😋😋

LET’S START 2019 | with healthy choices. Poke is probably my FAVE healthy food in the world and this NEW poke bar in Richmond does it right 👌🏻🤤
___

Thank you David @pokebarcanada for inviting me in. Love the unique way you put rice scoops on the side 👍🏻
___

Putting rice on the side actually prevents the taste of the fish from going bitter. Hot rice touching raw fish will impact the taste. And being on the side, you can control how much protein then sides then rice you have in each scoop! 😋👏🏻
___

Fresh food, great selection of sides, and well marinated proteins - highly recommend! Check them out in the Richmond Walmart complex 👍🏻
___

Do you like poke?? What’s your fave topping to get? Mine’s masago 🤤
