Snackshot Vancouver | 糖百府 Hong Kong Style Dessert Granville

Snackshot Vancouver | 糖百府 Hong Kong Style Dessert Granville

Snackshot Vancouver Granville Hong Kong Style Dessert Nomss.com Delicious Food Photography Healthy Travel Lifestyle

Snackshot 糖百府 is a new Hong Kong style dessert shop that recently opened on 7980 Granville Street – Marpole neighbourhood. The menu focus is Chinese sweet soups along with their claim to fame Vitasoy milk red bean bulldog drink! And, of course, the sweet soup tasting platter!

 

The dessert shop’s decor retrofits to the nostalgic Bing Sutt 冰室, old school movie posters and things that are quintessentially Hong Kong. It reminds me lots of the Vintage Starbucks in Hong Kong – both on Duddell Street and Mong Kok.

Vitasoy Milk with Red Bean Bulldog 7.95: This eye-catching drink is traditionally known as red bean ice. It is made trendy again with a bottle of vitasoy dressed up as a Mexican Bulldog. I like that it isn’t too sweet and actually is quite tasty. However there isn’t a lot of red bean. And it is debatable if this drink is worth the sticker shock of 7.95.

Sweet Soup Tasting Platter 22.95: Your choice of either hot or cold. This photogenic dessert platter again is another popular item ordered. It consists of nine mini cups of sweet soup (from top to bottom): Cashew Paste, Red Date and Longan Soup, Almond Paste, Sesame Paste, Tofu Pudding, Red Bean Soup, Green Bean Soup, Black Glutinous Dessert and Walnut Paste.

This is a great option for those who want to sample a little bit of everything. There was only a few that stood out and personally I much prefer the dessert soups at Bubble Fruity 桂花林 in Richmond. Overall, I think the flavors here at Snackshot are underwhelming and the texture is too gummy.

Street Snack Combo 6.95: We also ordered a combo of curry fish balls, siu mai and rice rolls. It comes with 4 siu mai and 4 curry fish balls. Again, the flavors are unforgettable and the plate of not hot enough. I also wish they had provided chili paste on the side.

 

Overall, the prices at Snackshot are pretty high and the portions are small. The place is more of a hyped gimmick. We left $40 poorer and I can not foresee coming back anytime soon.

BERRY TREATS AND MORE
Beaucoup Bakery adds new seasonal pastries to its line-up.

Beaucoup Bakery & Café celebrates the arrival of summer with several new additions to its menu, including three new pastries and a refreshing beverage: Strawberry Mille-Feuille, Matcha Raspberry Tart, Butter Shoyu Roasted Corn Tarte, and a Rhubarb Iced Tea.

“We really wanted to highlight berries in our summer menu this year and strawberries and raspberries are certainly very vibrant, tart, and sweet for the season,” explains Betty Hung, co-owner and head pastry chef of Beaucoup Bakery. “These are full-flavoured yet delicate and light pastries that really hold up to the warmer weather. And, our corn tarte is not too heavy for lunch or a snack. And of course, we will be using local berries and corn for as long as we can.”

 

BEAUCOUP BAKERY Summer 2017
The pretty-in-pink Strawberry Mille-Feuille ($6.50 each) is composed of house-made puff pastry, strawberry diplomat cream, strawberry gelée, and fresh strawberries on top.

 

BEAUCOUP BAKERY Summer 2017

Customers who order the Matcha Raspberry Tart ($5.50 each) can expect to enjoy a striking pastry creation featuring a matcha pastry base, dacquoise, crème pâtissière, raspberry gelée, and piled high with fresh raspberries.

 

BEAUCOUP BAKERY Summer 2017
Beaucoup Bakery’s new savoury item is a Butter Shoyu Roasted Corn Tarte ($4.95 each), made of roasted corn, onions, shimeji mushrooms, and finished with a basil cherry tomato salad.

The company’s priority is to put care and pride into everything it does, from the ingredients used and the little details that go into the baking, through to the way the company treats valued customers and friends.

So next time if you are craving a juicy ass burger, come get a Monarch Burger. Feeling healthy, order a kale salad with a garlicky cheese sauce. The leaves are soft and requires minimal chewing. And the fries? Pretty crispy although a tad salty.
