Polly and I managed to get together once after the school reopened. Polly had to go to downtown Vancouver to run some errands. We took the opportunity to go for our cake meet in downtown Vancouver.
Polly suggested to try this place called Chicco at 1504 Robson St. She got a flyer from her previous visit to downtown and Chicco was on the flyer with a tagline which captured her attention. The tagline is “The one and only Japanese Dessert Cafe”.
We were rather surprised by this small cafe which has tables and chairs which looked so old fashion and worn out. Perhaps, the owner of this place likes antique.
We ordered two small latte which costs $2.95 each. Even the cups look antique.
We had two pieces of cakes to share. The first piece is a Japanese Soft Cheese Cake which costs $4. The cake is very light, unlike the dense cheese cake we usually have.
The next piece of cake is what they called Green Tea Cake. This slice costs $5.30. This Green Tea Cake has 2 layers of red bean icing in it. This cake reminded Polly of her favourite cake shop near her sister’s place back in Kuala Lumpur. She and her sister used to order a whole Green Tea Red Bean Cake and finished it all by themselves. This Green Tea Cake brought back good memories to Polly.
We found that the texture of the Green Tea Cake is rather rough to our liking. Chicco only accepts cash and they are close on Sunday.
