After dinner, my friend and I decided to go for HK style dessert and picked this place as our destination. Service was pretty horrible and almost non-existent, we were left with the menu for ages before we could flag someone down to take our order, even then, I had to wave my hand and called out a few times before the server came over.
My mango tapioca with pamelo dessert came relatively quickly. The "mixture" was suspiciously foamy, mango was sour like lemon and the pamelo meat was hard, as if it's been sitting out for a while, definitely not too fresh.
My friend's tofu dessert with red bean was no better. Did not look like the the picture on the menu at all, and didn't look appetizing. There was plenty of liquid in the bowl, not much red beans found, and tofu dessert tasted like stuff mixed from the powdered stuff.
Definitely will not be going back anytime soon.
My gf and I tagged along with friends here for a late evening sugar rush. It's your typical Richmond milieu with all the stereotypes, from the crowd to the decor.
The menu seems extensive but much of it is repetitive; invariably all of us ended up with something that included mango and sago. Tasty for what it is but overall portions feel a little skant, given the prices. I would surmise that most who come here know exactly what to expect, again for what it is, it's at par with the comparables.
Service is far too leisurely, but just barely good enough to avoid a poor rating. Poor english coupled with what looks like confusion makes for a lengthy experience.
Not expecting a return visit, but I would know what to expect if I came back.
Food: good variety of Chinese dessert soups, fruity drinks/slushies, milk tea, and other dessert items (ex. creme brulee, flan, tapioca pudding etc) to choose from. everything tasted ok.
Service: prompt, polite
Value: comparable to other bubbletea and dessert places around
Ambiance: tabletops looked dirty, felt sticky, corners splintered. couch on the side looked worn out with tears.
I came here yesterday with a couple of my friends for a late night dessert. We came here because other bbt houses were full so we had to go somewhere else and my friend suggested this place. I actually do not really like HK style desserts, ie. sweet soups, juices, glutinous rice, puddings, sago, and many other desserts. As for the savory foods, they have fish balls, fish cakes, instant noodles, and many others. I didn't try any savory foods but they don't look appetizing to me in the pics. So, my suggestion is if you don't like simple HK style desserts then don't even bother coming here.
When a place claims to be 100% healthy, and even flaunts it in its name (they used to be called 100% healthy desserts), I expect it to be so. I guess they kind of realized it themselves, as they changed the name to Sweetie Pink Desserts. Still not a fan of the name, but at least it’s not dishonest.
While there are some interesting flavors (they have deep fried ice creams), I find their desserts too sweet for my taste. I tried their cold tofu flakes and found it just okay.
I ordered a bubble tea and it tasted nothing special. The mango parfait with green tea ice cream was deceiving from the picture. The mango was sour and it was really small. The toast with banana was just gross, you can make something way better at home. But I must say it's a good hang out place with friends, don't expect good service, have to take a lot of effort to flag someone down.
This dessert house reminds me of the dessert houses in Hong Kong...but just a lot more expensive. The portions are quite small, and on average it is around $6 per dessert. It's a pretty cute dessert house, and it feels very homey. The service is okay, similar to many Asian places; the waiters/waitresses will come when you need help, but that is pretty much it. It's a place that would be great to bring families too, and it does have a variety of Asian style desserts, including shaved ice, pudding, drinks, dessert soup, ice cream, waffles, and many more.
Mango Gigi with chin sum jelly
- I ate this three times here, and the first two times it was good, but the last time I ate it the mangos were sour. The chin sum jelly has a very unique texture; the exterior has a similar texture of coconut jelly (it actually looks like coconut jelly, but in a different colour), and the texture is chewy but not the sticky mochi-type of chewiness. This is really good and I highly recommend it for those who like fresh fruit dessert, but you just have to be careful of the mangos because they might be sour.
-This pudding is more of a mousse-like texture, with layers of powdery cookie-like texture in between. For an Asian dessert, this is more on the sweet/heavy side.
-This dessert pretty much consist of shaved ice and you can choose what kind of toppings you would like on top. The shaved ice is more on the rough side for my liking, but it isn't too bad.
I tried this place for the first time the other night, and though the menu was interesting and there were a lot of unique items on there, the menu is waaay too decieving, showing big portions when they are really only small portions on small plates and small bowls.
I got the mango cold noodle in strawberry coconut juice, and it is displayed on this big white plate/bowl, and it comes in their typical small bowl for almost double the price as the other bowled desserts.
Don't trust it as being 100% healthy either...my mango gigi with honey coconut was overly sweet, and their snacks menu is far from being healthy (deep fried?).
Having done food photography, I know the need to impress in photographs, but having such large portions compared to what you actually serve leaves the customer feeling lied to and in the end, leaves them feeling cheated.
Most likely not coming back! They have the potential to do well presentation wise but they just fell flat. I'd rather buy fresh fruit from the grocers and prepare it myself at home~
Wow i thought its called 100% healthy desserts.. no?
anyway the food is okay. There's so many to choose from though It's good to have variety
Service i should say was just horrible. We were like "Excuse me, where is our server?" the whole time; plus she does not speak english. How were we supposed to communicate with her?
The desserts are decent , not exactly healthy as they would say , i have the mango with something jelly . tasted decent , would consider going again since you don't see many dessert places in richmond. Also the choice selection is definetly far more than most dessert places . Though the interior definetly needs a little revamp.
I ordered a dessert with mango, tapioca, coconut and grapefruit. This was the worst dessert I have ever had in my life. The mango bits were too sour and totally not eatible. My friend didn't enjoy her dessert as well. I don't think I will ever return.
Ambiance and service were ok, but with the quality of their dessert, I really have no idea how come they are still around.
CUTE PLACE! and i must say, their dessert menu is absolutely AMAZING! full of pictures, great descriptions ...I usually have a hard time deciding on just ONE. They have these little tadpole jelly things that are suppose to be healthy for you... they dont taste like anything alone.. but paired with fruits and icecream.. it adds a nice crunchyness~ You gottta try to know what im talking about! Service was ok, its a small place and i guess it takes some time to make the desserts, but it's worth the wait. Love the ambiance, it's really cute... sometimes i wish I could take home their tables and chairs :P
Overall... if your looking for something DIFFERENT aside from ice-cream cones. gelatos, BBT etc.... Give this a try!
