Faubourg on West 41st, Vancouver

After the dim sum at Neptune Seafood Restaurant in Surrey, Polly and I went over to Burnaby as Polly had to run an errand there. On the way back to Richmond from Burnaby, Polly decided to go to Faubourg for tea break as she still had some time to kill before picking her daughters up from tuition after school.

Bubble Tea Shop on No. 3 Road, Richmond

Ben and I went to the Real Canadian Superstore to get groceries in an afternoon, around 3PM.

We had wanted to try the Bubble Tea Shop at the corner of the Real Canadian Supertore but it’s either we were there in the morning when they are not open yet or there are too many people in the shop. This place opens from 12PM to 10PM.

This day, we were surprised to see the shop was empty around 3PM. So, we decided to return our shopping cart and have a dessert to share first.

The shop was decorated with Halloween decor as it’s near Halloween.

Besides dessert and drinks, the shop also sell a lot of cute comic character keychains, memorabilia, toys, gifts, etc.
