My friends and I were at a Taiwanese restaurant for our last dinner together until one year later. We were checking out their dessert menu, but we left the restaurant without having any dessert, as some of us already had milk tea and also we couldn’t find what we wanted to order.

On the way home, one friend said to go somewhere for dessert. We don’t have much information around the area, so we decided to go to Cactus Club Cafe near Metrotown. The restaurant is on Kingsway and open till late.

We each ordered some dessert or drink.

Chocolate Lava Cake

I knew the galette would be big, so I chose the lava cake. I liked it, although I found it sweet. The sourness of raspberry coulis was helpful for that.

I had a craving for ice cream and told Collin about it. It was early August and still bright outside even around 8 o’clock at night, so he suggested us walking to Metrotown.

He had an idea where to get it, which was Tim Hortons. He said they now serve ice cream, too. Tim Hortons is in two locations in Metropolis. One is close to Superstore, and the other seems close to H&M. The one close to Superstore has this ice cream section.

We each ordered Cold Stone ice cream.

First, select the size, second, select ice cream flavour, third, select mix-in. Here is the page that explains.

The staff was mixing what we ordered on the cold stone.

At the end, this size was too much for me. It was so sweet and I couldn’t finish it.

On the first weekend of this year, I went to Metrotown in Burnaby. I can’t remember what I was doing there, but I was so thirsty and needed to get something to drink. There were so many people here and there, because of continuous boxing sale. There is my favorite place in the Food Court, yet I wasn’t even closer. So, I stopped by at this store.

Orange Julius is in two locations in Metropolis. One is close to Superstore, and the other is at the Food Court. I went to the one close to Superstore.

I ordered fresh squeezed juice.

The staff cleaned up the squeezing machine before she started making. I know it’s more work and consuming time to clean up each time when customers order different mix, as I worked at a restaurant and made drinks before, but I’m glad she did so that I don’t have to taste carrot etc. I like the fact that people do what they’re supposed to do without being told.
