Meet Fresh – Las Vegas, Nevada

We recently went to Las Vegas and I traveled with some friends who enjoys Asian desserts so we found ourselves at Meet Fresh at Las Vegas’s Chinatown. I promise to edit the picture one day so you can see it better as well! This location is in a strip plaza so there’s ample parking and the space here is pretty big for a dessert place!

We ordered 2 desserts and shared them between the 4 of us. It sounds absolutely strange, but we had their Icy Taro Ball which was actually really good! It’s a bowl of shaved ice with Taiwanese boba and mochi like “balls” in both taro and yam flavour. It was actually tasty and I don’t know how to make it sound good. It’s not sweet of a dessert like a lot of our Chinese desserts, but it definitely hit the spot

The other dessert we ordered was a their Tofu Dessert which is something I can make but it’s always nice to have a hot smooth gingery dessert to eat!!

This was a great place to visit. The subtle sweet and a big of dessert is always welcome especially with great company! Although this is a chain internationally, it’s still a great place to go!

Colossi’s Coffeehouse – High River, Alberta

It’s the Christmas season, and it’s the time of year I have a lot of time on my hands alone so it’s my time to relax and work on this! I am sure we all know by now my lover for little towns and coffee shops so lets start this one in High River, Alberta at Colossi’s Coffeehouse which was actually a stop RIGHT after I ate at the Whistle Stop diner as I wasn’t ready to leave.

As this was already an after lunch treat, I wasn’t hungry at all, so we just sat and chit chatted for awhile until I wanted to leave. I remember sitting here with my girlfriend on the line as she was trying to waste time because she was stuck getting her hair done. The coffee here was fantastic, the atmosphere was cozy and the people were fantastic!

This was definitely a great place to stop in for either a quick socializing coffee or even to hunker down and get some work done! This is a spectacular coffeehouse and I love the locally owned and love shop that has so much pride and passion.

Yum Bakery (Calgary Farmers Market) – Calgary, Alberta

We love the farmers market, and this time, we went there to enjoy a little French treat from Yum Bakery which is a little stand in the market.

We decided to get a box of 5 macarons as they’re a little costlier than other places. The box was really pretty and the colours of the macaros were so vibrant!

We got 5 different flavours and tried their pistachio, earl grey vanilla, rose lychee, hazelnut praline and lemon lavender. All the flavours were excellent and the texture wasn’t bad either.

We enjoyed these macarons we dragged some friends out to the Farmers Market the follow weekend to enjoy the same selection of macarons!
