Caramel Pudding on Shaved Ice

Honey Milk Tea?


Combo of Taiwanese Chicken, Deep Fried Tofu, and Fishcake

Ice Cream Waffle

French Fries

We had a big group hangout before Jane left for vacation a few weeks ago at Leisure since they always have good food and drinks. Taiwanese owned and has a very nice vintage feel to it, which attracts both young and older crowds.

I didn’t try all the food above at this sitting, although I have tried many of them in the past. The Caramel Pudding on Shaved Ice is one of my favourites. The sweet caramel works well with shaved ice, although I can get a brain freeze after too many spoonfuls. It’s still a great dessert to share though. Another one of my favourites is the Ice Cream Waffle. The waffle is served warm, and accompanied with the ice cream, making a delicious dessert. I’ve also tried the French Fries which are also really good. They aren’t too oily, yet they are crispy. This time, I tried something new though. I got their Combo of Taiwanese Fried Chicken, Fried Tofu, and Fishcake. I have to say, I was a little disappointed with this dish, as it wasn’t presented too well, and was extremely oily. I’ve had their Taiwanese Fried Chicken as a separate dish before, and I thought it was really delicious. I didn’t find that tofu or fishcake to be any special, and they were way too oily. The whole dish was also spicy, which was good, but I also found it a little too salty. I would definitely recommend getting the chicken on its own though.

Overall, Leisure is always one of my favourite places to go to for late night desserts or bubble tea. They are also always extremely packed at night, especially on weekends.

Japanese Light Cheesecake

Definitely not my first time at Leisure Tea and Coffee, but always a go to place for me. Owned by a Taiwanese family, they offer a variety of bubble tea, sandwiches, Taiwanese snacks, coffee and tea. I especially love the vintage and artsy environment and decor in the store. And don’t think that it is only a hangout place for teens and young adults because it seems to attract much of the older crowd as well. Here, I decided to try their Japanese Light Cheesecake. It is really fluffy but I guess it’s nothing too special. I would recommend trying their ice cream waffle and most of their drinks are also extremely good.
