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.

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.

Arepas with chicken, avocado and green peas: Contrasting the pine and chanterelle mushroom arepas we have back in fall, this the chicken was light and clean. I can eat this pita pocket sandwich morning, afternoon and evening. The stuffed filling is substantial but not overwhelmingly heavy.
