ZenQ is an international dessert chain originated from Taiwan within the same parent company as Chatime. They are quickly expanding in Canada, Vietnam and Hong Kong this year. They specialize in desserts that have grass jelly and Q balls (matcha, yam and taro flavoured).
Their menu has drinks and desserts.
Orea Cocoa Waffle
There are 4 pieces of waffles with a sprinkling of Oreo cookies, bananas, chocolate sauce and a scoop of chocolate ice cream. Good for chocolate lovers.
Fresh Fruit Waffle
There are 4 pieces of waffles too with a drizzle of honey and as scoop of ice cream. The fruits that were on the plate are mangos, strawberry, honey dew, and banana. Of the two waffles, I liked this one because of all the fruits.
Creamy Frappe Series
Mango Creamy Frappe
They have a bunch of different snowy ice desserts, but this one has mango frappe, fresh mango, mango jelly, vanilla ice cream, condensed milk and fruit loops. The mango frappe was delicious and the textures of the mango and jelly went well together.
Tofu Pudding Series
Tofu Pudding No 3
In this dessert, there is Pearls, Q Balls, Peanuts, and Sweet Potato a top tofu pudding. The Q Balls were nice and chewy like mochi.
Hot Grass Jelly Series
Hot Grass Jelly No 2
This has grass jelly, taro, pearls, Q balls, and a ball of brown sugar.The grass jelly and the pearls were nice and chewy.
Royal Sweet Soup Series
Red Bean Soup No 3
Sweet potato in a red bean soup was ok, but we all personally didn’t like red bean soup.
Longan Black Glutinous Rice Series
Longan Black Glutinous Rice No 3
This version also has Sweet Potato right in the centre. The consistency is thicker and you get a lot of texture from the rice.
Oreo Cocoa Ice Diamond
If you have a sweet tooth, you’ll like the oreo chocolate drink.
Hot Hand Made Taro Milk Tea
There are pieces of taro in this and it’s pretty hard to find a taro milk tea with real taro. Make sure you mix this around as the taro sinks to the bottom.
Winter Melon Latte
The winter melon taste is faint as you can taste more of the milk and it has more of an almond taste to this.
ZenQ Milk Tea with Grass Jelly
Classic item to get at any bubble tea shop. Since they do specialize in grass jelly, it’s a must.
Strawberry Black Tea
The sweet strawberry paired with the black tea. Good for those who like a bit of caffeine and a fruity touch.
Mango Green Tea
The mango green tea I felt was a bit sweet for my taste preference.
Overall, some food and drinks were a hit and miss. If you want to impress your friends, go with the classic milk tea, waffles, grass jelly desserts or their tofu desserts. It’s good to have more options in town where there are desserts and bubble tea to hang out with friends.
