Icy Bar

Our friend wanted some tau foo fah after dinner so we headed over to Icy Bar. It’s been a few years since my last visit here. They have two other locations (Richmond and Kensington-Cedar neighbourhood).

A couple signs outside advertising their Taiwanese dessert options.

Hours are late, catering to the Asian dessert crowd.

We dropped in on a Sunday evening (around 9:00pm). The place was reasonably busy and they had Home Alone 3 up on the TV. Service is pretty non-existent and water is self serve at the counter.

The menu is massive with shaved ice, fresh tofu pudding, pancakes, hot sweet soup, crepe cake, plant pudding, honey & thick toast and drinks. Essentially, all the Asian desserts.

Fresh tofu pudding with two items (E1) ($6.00)
DSC09192M got this with mochi and pearls and asked for ginger sugar. I had a bite; it’s plain and ginger is very, very subtle.

Fresh plain tofu ($5.00)
DSC09190Iv got his plain with ginger sugar.

Milk tea with grass jelly ($4.75)
DSC09194This was weak for a milk tea. We asked for 50% ice and 50% sugar but the flavour was bland, almost watered down.

Grass jelly and pearls were decent.

Green tea crepe cake ($8.00)
DSC09199Basically, an Asian style mille-feuille. Green tea flavour was good (again subtle) but paired well with the red bean.

DSC09198

Decent but prices have increased and quality doesn’t seem to be the same as before.
