Sweet Obsession

Chocolate Obsession

White Chocolate Raspberry Mousse

I love desserts so my friend brought me to Sweet Obsession on West 16th. It offers a variety of different cakes to choose from, including cheese cakes, chocolate ganache and tiramisu, as well as classic confections like dulce de leche, St. Honore and dacquoise cakes. You can buy them by slice, as well as by the whole cake.  There are also drinks and other petite desserts. There are a few seats to dine in, and they also offer take out. Really delicious cakes and looked quite busy! If you’re a dessert lover, then you must check this place out!

Yavis Club Cheesecake Cafe

White Romance Cheesecake

Green Tea Glacier Cheesecake

Yavis Club is located in Richmond, and offers a variety of cheesecakes and drinks and opens till late night. Their cheesecakes are either New York Style, so baked, like the White Romance, which is really an original flavoured cheesecake, or it is Glacier style. Glacier cheesecakes are basically ice cream mixed in the cheesecake. It gives a icy feeling, almost like an ice cream cake. A great place to get some cheesecake late at night!

High Tea

Creamy Earl Grey – Bergamot and Vanilla

Ever wondered what it would be like to relive the childhood tea parties but as an adult? Well you can do so at Secret Garden located in the Kerrisdale neighbourhood! With pretty decor and cute little chinaware, Secret Garden offers a variety of tea time snacks and of course tea! My friends and I went for high tea, and by making a reservation beforehand, you have a preset variety of dainty sandwiches, scones, cakes, and desserts ready for you. The portions are split up for the number of people having high tea and is quite filling even though they are dainty! High Tea is around $27 a person. I also chose a Creamy Earl Grey and mixed with milk and sugar, it tasted wonderful! Now call your girlfriends up and have some tea time fun!

ABC Cafe

Baked Alaska

ABC Cafe recently opened at Aberdeen Mall in Richmond. The restaurant has a nice, clean atmosphere and service was quite fast. The prices are relatively expensive for HK Style Cafe food, but the ingredients used are also of higher class. They have dishes like steak, and a variety of seafood. The food is more western styled than most Chinese cafes. Overall, the food was quite good. Nothing too special I guess. My friend was craving some Baked Alaska afterward, so we ordered it. The flame went up and unfortunately, I think it burned the meringue too much so that it was actually burnt on the sides and had a bad aftertaste. Inside, was fruit cake as opposed to a brownie base that I usually have. It was still good, but I wish it weren’t so burnt!

It is an all you can eat chocolate buffet and includes a variety of luscious cakes, pastries and pies, exquisite sorbets and ice creams.

Diplomat Bakery

Diplomat Bakery is down in the Steveston area of Richmond near the dyke. They are known for their delicious cakes from the typical New York Cheesecake to cakes like Bailey’s Chocolate Cake and Espresso Chocolate Fudge Cake. There are so many different cakes to choose from that you want to take home a slice of each! After debating which cake to choose for a long time, I ended up with a slice of one of my favourites: the Red Velvet Cake. I love the creamy smooth cheese filling on the red chocolate sponge cake! Delcious! Must go back to try those other cakes!

Joey Burrard

Went to Joeys Restaurant at the Burrad location and decided to try the famous lava cake my friends were all praising about. It’s called the Molten Lava Chocolate Souffle on the menu and it’s a rich dark chocolate cake outside, with a soft molten lava centre and ice cream. Comes with a raspberry sauce on the side. Not too sweet, and the chocolate just melts out. Delicious!
