I headed over with the Chinese Bites crew the other night for some traditional Taiwanese and Asian desserts at Icy Bar on Kingsway. You may have heard of Icy Bar before- they have locations on Boundary St, Parker Place, Crystal Mall and the Richmond Summer Night Market.
The weather in Vancouver is incredible. It’s hot during the day and then reaches that really comfortable thin sweater weather during the night. I’m blogging from home at the moment- it’s 7 pm right now and the weather is fantastic. In fact, I’m currently sipping on today’s recipe post while blogging about it at the same time. This doesn’t happen too often.
The weather is so hot in Vancouver! I’m BOILING. It’s been hard to have a good dessert appetite lately- my body is craving only light and airy sweets and i’m finding them hard to come by. We had a girls get-together the other night and I was in charge of the dessert. Usually this wouldn’t be a problem, chocolate is my forte, but chocolate can also be heavy and not suitable with the outside heat. I needed something that people would enjoy and cool down to at the same time.
Whenever I step into a Menchie’s store my heart starts to beat a little faster, my senses are heightened and I feel my cheeks flushing out of excitement. I’m just as thrilled as my six-year-old self at a five-cent candy store.
When you look at these gorgeous Egg & Prosciutto Tarts how long do you think they took to make? An hour? Two hours? Would you believe me if I told you that these tarts are ready in under 40 and are actually one of the simplest morning dishes to make?
