Vancouver Croissant, How to get fresh-baked croissants at home

Vancouver Croissant’s ready-to-bake croissants are locally owned and use natural ingredients. Each box costs $15 for 6 croissants. This is very affordable compared to some of the other croissants that can be delivered to your home. I have personally seen others charging $40 for 6 croissants. These cheese croissants are very tasty and convenient. I can make 1 batch and my breakfast for the next 3 days is well taken care of.

Teapressu Bubble Tea

the store is using these ingredients with care to create high-quality tea. We have been going to their food truck for many years and their tea quality hasn’t declined at all. The price point is fair, especially in today’s cost standard. They have a few kinks to work out, but Teapressu is a bubble tea store that we highly recommend.

iDen & Quan Ju De Beijing Duck House (全聚德)

Judging by the items on the menu and the price point of $60 per person, Quan Ju De placed themselves at the fine dining establishment tier of restaurants. I believe the owner has focused too much on the decor, and missed some of the fundamental elements of a fine-dining restaurant. Peking duck is a classic dish. You can improve the recipe or make it fusion, but you cannot charge a premium while skipping steps on the process. Some of the food does taste good, but there are ones that are just mediocre. Please make sure that you do not get take out from Quan Ju De. The food quality drops exponentially, and you are paying for part of the $12 million dollar interior decor anyways. We cannot honestly recommend this restaurant. There are better fine dining options in Vancouver, and many have better tasting food, better service, and breathtaking views.

Delissio Crispy Pan Pizza

I feel like the thickness of the pan pizza mainly contributes to the fluffiness of the base, rather than filling me up. Perhaps the amount of ingredient is the same, and being fermented longer is the only difference between the deep pan pizza and normal ones. Maybe, the purpose of the pan is just to hold the airy dough to its shape. The Delissio’s Crispy Pan Pizza is quite enjoyable, however, the $7.99 price point is a bit too much for what we are getting in the box.
