Shaved ice desserts have been gaining popularity in Vancouver and Icy Bar now has four locations in Vancouver, Richmond and Burnaby (and a stall at the Richmond Night Market). It's the best way to beat the heat in the summer! The restaurant is always packed so make sure you have time to wait for a seat, or you can take your desserts to-go.
Here are some of the desserts we tried:
|Clockwise from top left: Mango Ice Cream Mochi Icy, Traditional Eight Mix Icy (customizable toppings), Strawberry Mango Ice Cream Icy, another Eight Mix Icy with fruit toppings and green tea ice cream.|
|Clockwise from top left: Tea Egg, Plant Pudding (Flavours: Original, Durian, Mango, Oreo, Tiramisu), Black Rice with Coconut Milk (hot dessert), Red Bean Green Tea Ice Cream on Thick Toast.|
|Pancake series: Strawberry, Mango, Durian, Taro. Filled with whipped cream and the corresponding fruit.|
|Chocolate Honey Toast. One of my favourite desserts of the evening, the toast cubes are smothered in syrup and topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.|
|Tofu pudding, with your choice of toppings.|
|Fererro Rocher and Durian smoothies. Not as sweet as most drinks, and very filling!|
