(Ottawa, Canada) • Best place for dessert in Chinatown so far! Whenever I am in the area again, I will make sure to stop by.
Ambiance: This place is quite big, bright and it has a fun vibe. There are game machines and board games. You take a seat at wherever table is free and order at the counter, they bring it to you after. The menu is on a board behind and in front of the counter and it has a few options only, which I liked it because it made it easy! There are some interesting paintings on the wall made by local artists.
Service: Fast and friendly. The girl at the counter was also nice and patient telling us the options and combinations for the desserts and bubble tea.
Cleanliness: The table, utensils, glass and chairs were clean; the floor, however, was sticky at some parts.
Food wait time: Very fast! The place was quite full but we didn’t need to wait much for our order.
Food presentation: Nicely presented, the brick toast looked delicious.
Portion: Big. I found that both the brick toast and the shaved ice cream were shareable sizes which it was a nice surprise.
Taste: I ordered Strawberry Brick Toast and I loved it! The cake/brick is not too sweet and despite being pretty big for one person, it is not sickening. The shaved ice is different; I ordered vanilla one, almonds and chocolate chips and I loved it, I thought it was so different and tasty. I would not be getting the chocolate chip again though because, in my opinion, the chocolate gets hard and it takes the taste away as it gets stuck in your teeth. But the shaved ice is my new favorite ice cream!
Price: Affordable. Worth the money for the uniqueness of both treats.
