Mosquito: Dessert and Champagne Lounge in Vancouver

Diana Chan May 20, 2018 Dessert, Gastown, Late Night, Three Beakers

Mosquito is a dessert and champagne lounge in Vancouver located right in the heart of Gastown. There aren’t that many high-end dessert shops in the area, so we decided to come here after dinner for a drink and sweets. The lounge is very small, but is very relaxed for just hanging out with friends.

Menu

Pistachio Mille-feuilles

This layered dessert has pistachio crème légère, roasted strawberry, cocoa nibéstreusel,  strawberry jelly, and cocoa nib ice cream. We really enjoyed this dish due to its textures of the pistachio cream and streusel. It was devoured quickly and enjoyed by us all. The dessert is really a work of art since there are so many elements that make up the dish like those white chocolate feathers.

Thai Basil & Raspberry Chocolate Bar

This is constructed out of light chocolate mousse, Thai basil parfait, raspberry marmalade, blackout sponge, raspberry and chocolate ice cream. The ice cream was more like a sorbet due to the raspberry. This was a beautiful dessert but when it came to texture, it was all soft. It would have been nice to have a crunchy texture to the dish.

Earl Grey Tea

To go with dessert, I got their Earl Grey Tea in a small pot. We had some drinks before coming here, so we opted to caffeinate instead.

Final Thoughts

Overall, it’s one of the only sit down dessert restaurants in Gastown with a good vibe.  It’s definitely a place if you want to keep the conversation going after dinner with drinks.
