Mingshen Uji Matcha Specialty Store 明森宇治抹茶專賣店 誠品敦南 二訪 is located in the Basement Level of Eslite Bookstore. The closest MTR station is the Zhongxiao dunhua station. This giant superstore also has clothing, jewelry and a few other private brands on the upper and lower floors. The food court in the basement is amazing. Especially because they have Mingshen Uji Matcha desserts: Ice Cream, Jelly, Teas, etc.
I was captivated by what entailed in the picture. It tasted as delicious as it looked, if not better. The thick soft matcha ice cream was exploding with green tea… but it was not bitter. The green tea jelly was cold and chewy which added a nice bounce to contrast the ice cream. The roasted wheat germ give it a nice zing with every bite.
If you are ever in the area, you must try this! That is all.

Valentine’s is quickly approaching. Although I feel it is another commercialized day full of gimmicks to sucker our hard earned dollars, it is always a great day to celebrate with some special chocolates. Last year, Dave got me a box of these sinfully delicious signature…
James Coleridge is the mastermind behind the ever famous, award winning gelateria store on the corner of Burrard and Cordova Street – Financial and Waterfront district of Vancouver. This classy ice cream parlor is one of the best gelato in Vancouver. This gelateria is about the dedication to the craft of making gelato an art. Bella Gelateria Vancouver could very well be the best ice cream in Vancouver. Bella Gelateria is about the love and passion that stems from perseverance of mastering affection (and also a beautiful memory.)
The owner boast great visionaries in addition to credibility – training at both the Italian Culinary Institute and advanced masters training at Carpigiani’s Gelato University. He was honored at the National Restaurant Association Show in Chicago for his gelato.
The shop itself is elegant and has an in-house laboratory to design his creations. Bella Gelateria believes in the slow food moment and the 100-mile diet where possible, using neither pre-packed frozen ingredients, , industrially prepared pastes or additives / artificial stabilizers. Everything is made fresh from raw ingredients and my favourite Avalon dairy organic whole milk via a 12 hour infusion process to create flavours that are intense and deep.
Rosewater and Noodle sorbetto: How mind blowing this was to have little noodle like particles in my ice cream. How light and refreshing that my single scoop dissipated so quickly. Damn it was good.
Meyer Lemon with Zest sorbetto: Like fresh lemon zest spraying out from the lemon. It is sweet yet tart but not sour.
Lavender Gelato: Strongly fragrant with fresh lavender morsels. I love it.
Salted Caramel Gelato: Funny how a little salt brings the flavours out so intensely. But it wasn’t salty to taste it was just incredibly delicious.
Milk Chocolate Gelato: Oh the milky coco goodness that is rich and smooth.
Pistachio Siciliano (Pistachio): Nutty goodness can be described only as heavenly because it is made from fresh green pistachios and not from flavonoid addictives.
Gewurztraminer sorbetto: If you think these aromatic grapes performs best in cooler climates than I guess an ice-cream parlor could be their natural habitat. This sorbet tastes like someone froze my favorite dry white vino in a tube.
Bring your girlfriend or partner here and you will score mega brownie points that will leave you grinning ear to ear the next day. Ice cream makes everything better! On a summer’s night, take a stroll down waterfront, check out Vancouver’s Convention Centre and the Vancouver Olympic Cauldron! Where did you take your SO to last time that scored mega brownie points???

I like pretty things… If anyone tells you the ambiance or the decor of the place doesn’t matter at all is lying. Fact of the matter is it enhances the whole dining experience. Don’t get me wrong. I love finding those hidden gems and don’t…
Sometimes after consuming too many cakes and cookies I feel that my taste buds requires me to touch base with my Eastern heritage with some Chinese desserts. Sadly there is not an abundance of dessert places in Vancouver (even Richmond) that features traditional dessert soups, puddings, and dumplings… With the few that are available not everyone does it right. Luckily, Bubble Fruity Richmond 桂花林馳名甜品 came to the rescue. Situated on Saba Road, just off from Richmond Centre, Bubble Fruity brings nostalgic childhood memories. The shop is brightly colored in green and orange. A simple hideout without a lot of fuss. This “mom and pop” shop has magazines, big screen TV, and bubble tea available for you to gather…
Their dessert menu has quite a bit of variety. From your basic Coconut Sago Soup 椰汁西米, Mango Sago Cream 楊枝甘露, to Almond 生磨杏仁糊 , Sesame Paste Soup 芝麻糊… to Dumplings with Wine 酒釀丸子. The portions are hefty and soups are not watery (some places water it down to save a few bucks, but certainly doesn’t keep loyal customers). Aside from sweets, there are also savory snacks – pork cutlet noodles, sandwiches, and thick toasts. Something for everyone! Even if you don’t have a sweet tooth!
Fresh Mango, sago and grass jelly (extra mango) 新鮮芒果西米涼粉 +鮮芒果: big chunks of mango. You can request extra mango also!
Fresh Philippine mangoes are delightful and sweet. Sago cooked perfectly and paired intimately with grassjelly (aka Herbal Jelly 仙草) FTW (for the win)! TIP: Always ask for extra mangoes. It is so delicious!
If you ever have a chance to come here , be sure to also try the Mango Pomelo Sago Cream 楊枝甘露! Wish I had taken a picture for you, but every time I come here, I simply devour it like no tomorrow!
