What is Fritillaria Bulb?

Fritillaria is a type of perennial, bulbous flowering plants belonging to the lily family. It is found in temperate regions in the Northern hemisphere. There are many species of Fritillaria that are toxic. Yellow Himalayan fritillary (Fritillaria cirrhosa) is commonly used in Traditional Chinese Medicine to treat respiratory conditions. Fritillaria has a bitter, sweet, and slightly cold nature.

 

Fritillaria are used in TCM to treat respiratory conditions connected to the lungs.

  • Asthma
  • Bronchitis
  • Cough
  • Hypertension
  • Pneumonia
  • Swelling
  • Tuberculosis

 

Many of the medicinal applications of fritillaria are connected to the lungs. In traditional Chinese medicine, Fritillaria is known for its ability to eliminate and decrease the production of phlegm and mucus by cooling and moistening the lungs, as well as reducing inflammation. Fritillaria also has potent antitussive properties providing relief from coughs.

How to select and buy Fritillaria Bulb 如何選擇和購買靓川贝 DOUBLE-STEAMED #SNOWPEAR WITH #FRITILLARIA BULB NOMSS.COM FOOD RECIPE BLOG #川貝燉雪梨

How To Select and Buy Fritillaria Bulb 如何選擇和購買靓川贝

I suggest buying whole grain when selecting and buying Fritillaria compared to purchasing the powder form. It is easier to distinguish whether it is genuine. The original Fritillaria Bulb typically is spherical shaped and has a diameter of 2mm. The shape of the Chuanbei is structure with a large flap hugging a smaller flap. If you look closely, the middle it has the shape of a crescent moon.

Pre-polished Fritillaria Bulb original color is light brown. Most market Fritillaria is treated and bleached to be pearly white. Coffee brownish yellow colored Fritillaria Bulb has become harder to buy, so it is very important to soak it in water to remove impurities before consuming. Also Pingbei 平貝 is cheaper than Chuanbei 川貝.

ICY Bar Vancouver | Shaved Ice Dessert, Bubble Tea etc 利源冰店

[image_with_animation image_url=”13938″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”]

ICY Bar Vancouver 利源冰店 is located on Kingsways. Not too far from it is another shaved ice dessert shop called IcePik Shavery. Icy Bar and IcePik are not the same. ICY Bar menu includes a wide variety of icy desserts to help you beat the heat! Aside from Icy Bar’s signature mix icy plates, there are also bubble teas, slushes, potted soil plant puddings, tofu puddings and also more traditional Chinese desserts like black rice with coconut Milk.

There are plenty of free street parking on Kingsway and the side streets. Inside is small but still quite roomy. The green walls perhaps isn’t the best for photos. But if you are lucky to be seated at one of the white tables, a top down flat-lay may turn out ok. I’m sure you can work all those MySpace angles!

[image_with_animation image_url=”13917″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”]

We were invited by ChineseBites along with few fellow bloggers for menu tasting at ICY Bar Vancouver 利源冰店.

Icy Bar: Five Things You Need to Know

  1. Multiple Locations: 1475 Kingsway/Knight, 3618 Kingsway/Boundary, Parker Place, Crystal Mall. Richmond Night Market
  2. Mochi are made from scratch
  3. Pancakes are made fresh everyday
  4. Fruits are fresh cut everyday
  5. Minimum charge $3.50 pp

Traditional Eight Mix Icy 八寶冰 can be customized with eight toppings $10, four $6.50, three items with coconut milk cup $5.50. Toppings include grass jelly, almond jelly, boba pearls, tapioca, pudding, chendol, red bean, coconut jelly, mochi, and fresh fruits (watermelon, mango, strawberry, lychee, pineapple, etc.) You can also add ice cream and mango puree as toppings also for additional charge.

It’s refreshing to beat the heat with some natural flavors and fresh fruits. I especially like the mochi and mango poppers as toppings. It’s summer in a bowl.

[image_with_animation image_url=”13926″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”]

We tried a variety of bubble tea and slush. I liked the Ferrero Rocher. It pretty much tastes like chocolate milk with some grounded chocolate for texture. Fresh Taro Bubble Tea was a bit light tasting. Mango Slush was my favorite. Not too sweet and made with fresh mangoes. I would recommended getting half sweet.

[image_with_animation image_url=”13927″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”]

Black Rice with Coconut Milk 椰汁黑糯米: This is a hot dessert soup and is one of my favorites. Black rice is good for women’s health in general. I like the creaminess with some texture. Added coconut milk makes it very soothing. This is one of my go to fall/winter desserts.

[image_with_animation image_url=”13928″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”][image_with_animation image_url=”13929″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”]

Tea Egg 茶葉蛋: Hard-boiled eggs with the subtle flavor of star anise, cinnamon and soy flavor. The deep brown hues comes from of black tea and soy. I love eggs. Runny, hard, soft or fried. I love them all.

[image_with_animation image_url=”13930″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”][image_with_animation image_url=”13933″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”]

Chocolate Honey Toast 巧克力金磚: An impressive tower of thick toast smothered in chocolate, honey, and condensed milk. Also available in mango honey toast, strawberry, peanut butter, nutella, red bean green tea ice cream, and original thick toast.

[image_with_animation image_url=”13931″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”]

Plant Pudding 盆栽布丁:

  1. Original 原味
  2. Durian 榴蓮
  3. Mango 芒果
  4. Oreo 奧利奧
  5. Tiramisu 提拉米蘇

My favorite was Tiramisu and Mango. I like the thick whipped cream and that it wasn’t overly sweet. The presentation in a soil plant pot is super cute.

[image_with_animation image_url=”13935″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”]

Tofu Pudding 豆腐花: The tofu pudding itself was pretty smooth but not as silky as I prefer. But overall still quite tasty and unsweetened. Customize your own toppings. The toppings are the same as those used for mix icy shaved ice dessert.

[image_with_animation image_url=”13924″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”]

Pancake Series 班戟: Color pillows of creamy sweetness. Wrapped inside each pancake are fresh fruits such as

  • Strawberry 草莓
  • Mango 芒果
  • Durian 榴蓮
  • Taro 芋頭

Again, I liked mango the best. If you are a fan of durian, than you will like the creaminess of durian with whipped cream.

I quite like Icy Bar and would definitely come back. I like variety of choices of either shaved ice desserts, bubble tea or even traditional Chinese dessert soup. It is a good place to order a few things to share. Service is prompt and prices are reasonable.

Steamed Milk Pudding or Steamed Milk with Two Films 雙皮奶 shuang pi nai is one of the most popular Chinese dessert in Hong Kong. It is generally a steamed milk pudding 炖奶 dun nai. Other names may include steamed milk with egg white, steamed milk with ginger juice, double milk skin, double boiled steamed milk… or however you’d like to fathom the literally translation.  Steamed Milk with Two Films is made of milk, egg white and sugar. It can be served hot or cold. I personally prefer hot steamed milk pudding. During our trip to Hong Kong, I was told Australia Dairy Company Hong Kong 澳洲牛奶公司 had the best shuang pi nai. But seeing how it was such a Hong Kong tourist attraction, I believe Yee Shun Dairy Company 港澳義順牛奶公司 is smoother.

For $25 HKD (approx $3 CAD), this was a steal to sit down and relax over some deliciously silky smooth pudding. Similar to a tofu pudding, Yee Shun Dairy Company HK Steamed Milk Puddings are creamier and has a sweetened milk fragrance. With eat bite, I hope that my skin will also be transformed to that of a new born’s. So I tried to recreate this at home with a simple steamed ginger milk custard recipe. Many things can go wrong and you will be easily disappointed. Often this milk won’t set properly or you will overcook the milk. With this step by step recipe, you will master the two step process of boiling and cooling down the milk.

Of course, like most Hong Kong Cafes, Yee Shun Dairy Company Hong Kong also offers cha chaan teng dishes like creamy egg and ham sandwich. Always toasted. Always no crust. Look at just how juicy this whole egg toast is!

 

Please let me know in the comments below if you know where the best steam milk pudding is in Hong Kong!! I would love to add it to my list for my next trip!

Being the Nancy that I am, how can I not order the Fancy Nancy. I guess raspberry vodka, Chamboard, cranberry, pineapple and lime is what I consists of. Above all, it’s a pretty tasty drink.

 

Cache Bistro and Lounge has happy hour / late night. The lounge menu was on promo at 2 for 1.
