Mosquito Desserts Vancouver | Afternoon High Tea Gastown

Mosquito Desserts Vancouver | Afternoon High Tea Gastown

Mosquito Desserts & Champagne is one of my favorite locations for desserts in Vancouver. It is located on 32 Water Street in Gastown. The restaurant is elegant and chic. It makes for the perfect location for the best date night. Now that they have also introduced Afternoon High Tea on Sundays between 1 to 4 pm – there is another reason to simply indulge!

The space is designed by Ste. Marie Art + Design – think Kissa TantoSavio VolpeBotanist.

Proudly serving Namasthe Tea. I love the Vanilla Rooibos for its rich creamy sweet mouthfeel with honey nectar rooibos with long lingering sweet finish. It is the perfect organic, caffeine free tea. We also ordered the Echinachai Tea. This tea is a robust, full bodied black tea with cacao and raisin notes balanced with the bold spices of the masala, rounded heady Tulsi and a sweet vanilla finish.

 

Mosquito Dessert Afternoon High Tea Menu

$50 pp

Panier de Mini Madeleines: Olive Oil & Orange Blossom (freshly baked and served warm)

Savouries

Smoked Sockeye Salmon & Crème Fraîche
Cucumber Mint & Cream Cheese

Petits Gâteaux

Haiti & Coffee: Haiti chocolate coffee mousse, mango mandarin jelly, cocoa sponge

The afternoon tea set is exquisite and beautifully presented. It is one of best high tea set available in Vancouver and I highly recommend you to visit. Or if you prefer having a larger slice of the cake, they are open Wednesday thru Sunday 5pm till late. Dessert, Charcuterie and Cheese plates, chocolates and macarons pairs wonderfully with their sweet wine, champagne, cocktails and beer menu.

Yama Cafe Vancouver | The New Basho Cafe

Yama Cafe Vancouver Hastings Nomss.com Delicious Food Photography Healthy Travel Lifestyle

Many people were saddened by the news that Basho Cafe was closing. Instead, Yama Cafe reopened and kept the essence of Basho. Taking over is Chef Yama – a former employee. Most of the original menu and spirit remains. I came here a while ago with a few foodie friends for a little treat.

The menu remains focused on afternoon sweet treats, coffee and tea lattes, rice bowls, salads, bread and soup. Tuna Tataki bowls are still $14 – an expensive option on food choices.

Matcha Latte 4.25: your choice of unsweetened or sweetened.  Afternoon tea cakes, matcha and sesame shortbreads, brownies and mochi muffins are priced between $1 to $3.

Yama is a cute cafe and a good hang out place to catch up with friends. Prices are pretty expensive for the small portions but it is a good alternative to the everyday coffee and croissant pastries.

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.

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

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.

 

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

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.

 

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

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.
