August 19th, 2012. Tea Shop 168 – Willowdale (North York, ON)
Finally able to take a little time to ourselves, Yire and I ventured out of our nice hotel room at Novotel and took a walk down Yonge Street. We saw Tea Shop 168 and looked at each other…Bubble tea?? Yes, please!
Perhaps it was because it was our first time left to our own faculties at a place where we didn’t have to make a mass group order….but it took us a lot of time to figure out what we wanted to order! It was as if we’d never ordered food in real civilization before! Hahaha!
Yire ordered the Matcha Slush and I got the Red Bean Smoothie. Holy moly, huge cups! Probably the sole reason we took may too many photos of the drinks was the sheer surprise of how big the cups were!
Sweet, refreshing, and filling…these were a generous accompaniment to what was to come….the waffle!
Named the Stravaganza, there was no way we couldn’t order this! A waffle topped with strawberry ice cream, strawberries, strawberry sauce, whipped cream and a sprinkle of white chocolate chips….man oh man, this was a real waffle delight!
We spent this nice slice of afternoon relatively worry-free and eating some delicious sweets for lunch 🙂
