It was a cold night in Vancouver, -5 degrees to be accurate. We were having dinner at Tableau and didn’t want to walk very far for something sweet. Some may say we are lazy, but women just don’t do well in the cold. Even when we are indoors, we complain that it’s cold. We are always cold.
We decided to pop into Konbinya to see what Bon Crepe has to offer. Perhaps we wanted a crepe of some sort or an ice cream.
When we went inside of the Konbinya entrance, we discovered they had parfait for a little under $7. This sparked our interest since we had parfait on our minds but didn’t want to walk to Chicco.
Green Tea Parfait ($6.62) has a piece of sponge cake, corn flakes, vanilla ice cream, tapioca pearls, green tea soft serve, green tea cake, green tea ice cream, green tea syrup, red bean, green tea powder, whipped cream and a wafer.
Green tea overload but it was great for our sweet tooths. It’s large, so I wasn’t able to finish it all since I ate too much at dinner.
Pudding Parfait ($6.62) has sponge cake, corn flakes, tapioca pearls, vanilla ice cream, custard pudding, vanilla soft serve ice cream, whipped cream, caramel sauce, strawberries, and a wafer.
The parfait is good but not as good at Chicco a few block down the street. The toppings are slightly different, but it’s really up to personal preference.
While you’re there, you should check out all the Japanese snacks at Konbinya. There’s always sales and you can find some cool drinks and candy.
