Mango Snow Ice

  • Mango desserts are always my go-to item when I see them on a menu.
  • This version was made with mango flavoured snow ice and topped with fresh mangos.
  • They were very generous with the portion of mangos and they were perfectly ripe, sweet, and delicious.

Golden Dragon Fruit Snow Ice

  • This dessert costs $21. I died a little when I found that out, but they import the dragon fruit daily from Ecuador so it is at optimal ripeness.
  • As soon as I had the first bite though I was sold. The dragon fruit was amazing. I have never had a dragon fruit that tastes this good before and I didn’t even know they could be so sweet and flavourful.
  • The snow ice itself was milk flavour and was refreshing and slightly creamy and sweet. It went perfectly with the dragon fruit.
  • This dessert is definitely something special and one of the most memorable things I have eaten.

Mango Sago

  • Mango sago is one of my favourite Asian desserts. I love how cool and refreshing it is and you don’t ever feel bad after eating it.
  • The fresh mango here was the same used in the snow ice above and was also very good.

Ice Cream

  • The ice cream here is good, but not my all time favourite. It has a nice smooth, creamy consistency, but I am not sure if it is worth the high price point.
  • They cater to Asian tastebuds so the ice cream isn’t as sweet as most other places. I would prefer if it was sweeter because I found it pretty mild in flavour.

Disclosure: I did not pay for my meal.

Final Thoughts?

Even though it is crazy expensive the dragon fruit snow ice is one of the best desserts I have ever eaten and definitely worth trying.

  1. 17°C Dessert Cafe | THE FOOD QUEEN – Vancouver food reviews - July 31, 2016

    […] This was a sponsored event and I didn’t pay, but I was surprised to see that these cost $15 each. I enjoyed this but would honestly never pay that much for a dessert made of watermelon and ice. At that price point I would much rather go to Doolami. […]
