A simple milk green tea and lychee green tea.
Because of our utterly failed attempt at finding Pearl Castle, we stopped at a small boba shop called Twinkle 2 to catch up over some sugary drinks and salty snacks. Amanda swears she is a good driver (which she is... with perfect back-in parking skills) and has a great sense of direction. She explained, "I never come to Richmond! Burnaby girls don't come here..." So... we blame Pearl Castle's horrendously hidden store for not being able to find it.
Fobby fun. Taiwanese salty and crispy popcorn chicken with basil.
It's served with a sweet chili sauce and Chinese-style dim sum mustard.
Laughing while typing (the epitome of multi-tasking) I still think it's ironic that the first food I encountered in Canada was minorly fobby and majorly Taiwanese though I'm sure there's something much more Canadian that awaits me. Thanks, Amanda, for picking me up from the airport. And thanks, tilted axis, for providing unexpected sunlight at 10:00 p.m. and thoroughly tripping me out.
