Milk – Los Angeles

Another interesting version of the ice-cream sandwich is macaron ice-cream sandwich!

Milk is a cafe known for its dessert and ice-cream, but most importantly, the red velvet ice-cream sandwich!

After being bummed by the churro ice-cream sandwich, I was pleasantly surprised by this crunchy macaron and not-too-sweet ice-cream.  Definitely worth the hype.

After dessert, we headed to the nearby LACMA to take photos!

FAIM? OUI OUI!!!

Churro Borough – Los Angeles

During the summer, there was a lot of hype about different ice-cream sandwiches and churro ice-cream sandwiches was one of it.

I love churro and ice-cream separately .. so I definitely had to visit Churro Borough when I was in Los Feliz.

Churro ice-cream sandwiches: vanilla custard (Madagascar bourbon vanilla bean) and Spanish latte (Zona rosa organic Central American blend espresso, condensed milk)…..

It was so difficult to eat this together as a sandwich, that I ate it deconstructed.  The churro was really good but the ice-cream was a bit too sweet.  This was a very interesting concept but truthfully speaking, it’s better just to look at it.

Cacao 70 – Ottawa

We weren’t full after dinner at town. so we decided to have dessert at Cacao 70.

Every item on the menu is chocolate… in heaven!

Hazelnut pizza with white chocolate sauce and fruits… It’s basically dough drizzled with chocolate..

Dark chocolate fondue with brownies, waffles and fruits

I was all chocolate-d out! After that, we went to watch the Parliament light show.

O Canada!

Beta 5 – Vancouver

I was a bit indulgent on my trip back and kept finding more sweets to eat.

 I hunted down  Beta 5 (it’s tucked somewhere on Industrial Ave) to try the famous cream puff, ice-cream sandwich (summer special) and chocolates.

Blueberry and cheesecake ice cream with blueberry compote on a graham cookie…  This is gourmet ice-cream sandwich! Very strong blueberry and cheesecake taste.  Love the graham cookie!

Raspberry and jasmine tea ice-cream on lemon shortbread cookie….. I actually preferred this ice-cream more.. very light!

raspberry earl grey cream puff….. the cream puff is like a very flaky and crispy croissant.  Look at all the cream!!!! I don’t think I’ve ever eaten a cream puff with that much / many layers of cream before!

My friend bought be a box of their signature collection chocolates for my birthday.Fisherman’s Friend, the Whole Cherry, Bay Leaf, Tropical Crunch, Imperial Stout, Jasmine Tea, Caramelized Banana and more…. the flavours were all interesting but my favourite would be the Bay Leaf.. it actually tasted very leafy and herby…

Addicted to Earnest!

There’s a new Earnest on Quebec Street! It’s a lot closer to me than the Fraser store so I went 4 times in the short time I was back…. I’m a tad too addicted!

Today’s seriously good flavours…

Serious chocolate / blueberry lemon ice-cream… the chocolate was rather normal… but I loved the pairing of blueberry and lemon…

Toasted coconut / 33 Acres of Malt……….

We ended up buying 4 more pints to bring home!: toasted coconut / matcha / whiskey hazelnut / London fog….

It was a bit disappointing that during the time I was back the flavours didn’t change……. I wanted to try Matchstick flavour! I ended up getting the same old flavours and didn’t take any more pics…

FAIM? OUI OUI!!!
