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.

The Rise Eatery Vancouver | Opens June 26

The Rise Eatery Vancouver | Opens June 26

THE RISE EATERY VANCOUVER OPENS Nomss.com Delicious Food Photography Healthy Travel LifestyleGlobally inspired restaurant The Rise Eatery will open in Vancouver on June 26. Elevated dining spot will serve shared plates that draw from Asia, Europe, the Americas, and beyond. The Rise Eatery, a globally inspired restaurant that combines flavours from as far away as Argentina, Korea, and Germany, has announced that it will open at 3121 Granville Street on June 26.

Founded by husband-and-wife team Dan Leung and Wanda Lai—who, together, have over two decades of culinary experience under their belts—the elevated dining spot specializes in shared plates that celebrate the cultural diversity of Vancouver. The gastronomic mind behind local catering company Danz Gourmet, executive chef Dan finds joy in blending the distinct tastes of regions in Asia, Europe, the Americas, and beyond to produce meals that are at once unconventional, fun, and relatable while being accessible in price point.

Crafted from seasonal and locally sourced ingredients whenever possible, The Rise Eatery’s menu features dishes such as the Chicken Seoul Good, crispy Korean fried chicken paired with wild mushroom cream, truffle oil, and freshly grated Parmesan; the Crème de la Crème, an irresistibly sweet-and-savoury duck liver crème brûlée enjoyed alongside Goji berry chutney and toasted baguette; and the Steak Your Claim, grilled AAA sirloin steak served with chimichurri, Kennebec fries, a Shishito-pepper-tomato-and-onion stir fry, Chinese donut, and a balsamic soy glaze.

A selection of vegetarian- and vegan-friendly plates, like the Kimcheese and Pretzel (housemade soft pretzel and kimchi-beer cheese) and the Shroom (wild mushrooms, udon, silken tofu cream, and cashew Parmesan), are also available. Desserts include the gluten-free Milk-n-Cereal, a creamy panna cotta complemented by corn puree and a chocolate-and-corn-flake crumble. All dishes are prepared and presented in a way that encourages sharing amongst diners.

 

THE RISE EATERY VANCOUVER OPENS Nomss.com Delicious Food Photography Healthy Travel Lifestyle

“After almost 15 years working in Vancouver’s catering industry, I’m excited to push the boundaries of our vibrant restaurant scene by paying tribute to the people, foods, and cultures that make it so special,” said executive chef Dan Leung. “It’s my hope that The Rise Eatery will allow Vancouverites to explore the beautiful tastes and traditions of their closest friends, loved ones, and more.”

“We want to take diners on a culinary adventure,” added Wanda Lai, The Rise Eatery’s director of operations. “Whether you’re stopping in for a quick lunch or sharing a thoughtfully plated meal during a night out with friends, our menu ensures you get the best of multiple worlds.”

Situated in Vancouver’s South Granville neighbourhood, the modern 60-seat room boasts a mix of natural woods. Live-edge tables and pops of The Rise Eatery’s signature indigo hue exude a relaxed feel throughout, while accents such as a sculptural copper chandelier lend sophistication.

Keeping with The Rise Eatery’s intercontinental theme, the bar will shake up six original cocktails that are globally influenced twists on classics. These include the Old Timer, Newly Fashioned (maple, orange bourbon, thyme, bitters, and sour cherry) and the Seoul of Caesar (vodka, Walter Craft Caesar Mix, Sriracha, sesame, kimchi carrot, and togarashi). Regionally produced craft beer and wines will also be available on The Rise Eatery’s six taps and by the glass and bottle.

Beginning June 26, The Rise Eatery will open from Tuesday to Friday and on Saturday and Sunday, from 5 p.m.until late. Daily lunch and weekend brunch service will begin in July.

Chez Christophe awarded top honours at BC Food Processors Association’s Product of the Year Award Gala

Chez Christophe awarded top honours at BC Food Processors Association’s Product of the Year Award Gala

CHEZ CHRISTOPHE FLUTES VANCOUVER PASTRY Nomss.com Delicious Food Photography Healthy Travel Lifestyle

Chez Christophe Chocolaterie Patisserie’s buttery, puff pastry flutes have earned gold at the 2017 BC Food Processors Association (BCFPA) Product of the Year Award gala during FoodProWest.

The Product of the Year Award recognizes a product that shows innovation; criteria including taste (if applicable), product packaging, marketing, innovation, and environmental impact. 26 companies participated this year. The judging panel, chaired by Top Chef Canada’s Mijune Pak, included Vikram Vij, Overwaitea Food Group’s Ken Clark, White Spot’s Danny Marcowicz, Lyra Growth’s Charles Chang, Sobeys’ Jeff Nadon, and BC Ministry of Agriculture’s James Street.

“My team and I are so proud to win gold for our flutes, which are definitely a customer favourite at our shop,” explains Christophe Bonzon, pastry chef and owner of Chez Christophe Chocolaterie Patisserie. “When we first made them, we would often sell out and it was at that point we thought, why don’t we introduce our flutes to even more people. After working hard on the packaging and distribution, we finally made it happen. The reception for them has been wonderful. I’m so happy because they are actually an integral part of my Swiss culture. In Switzerland, flutes are often enjoyed as an aperitif option when hosting.”

 

CHEZ CHRISTOPHE FLUTES VANCOUVER PASTRY Nomss.com Delicious Food Photography Healthy Travel Lifestyle
Chez Christophe’s flutes, retailing for $5.95 each, come in three flavours – Cracked Sea Salt, Black Sesame, and Parmigiano. They are very versatile and can be enjoyed as is, paired with a variety of dishes like a charcuterie board, and complement wine tastings.

“The BCFPA Product of the Year event has gotten larger each year,” says BCFPA CEO James Donaldson. “Chez Christophe was a very deserving Gold Medal winner among 26 outstanding products receiving a nomination this year.”

Chez Christophe’s flutes can currently be found at more than 50 retail locations in B.C., Alberta, and the Yukon. B.C. locations include Chez Christophe, Gourmet Warehouse, Meinhardt, Urban Fare, Well Seasoned, Whole Foods, and Winsor Meats.
