Ice Cream #Coffee

22 Apr

Iced Coffee #China style!  Here in Henan, most restaurants don’t have ice.  The Chinese don’t really like iced drinks – believing the cold unboiled water will make them sick and is a bad combination with your inside organs. (Probably true of the water here.) 

But Ice Cream is a different story.  Still bad for your health but not so likely to kill you.  So if you Order iced coffee or an iced soda You’ll get Ice cream coffee or a ice cream float 😄

#Rose Tea – Chinese Herbal Tea

13 Mar


However despite my mistaken belief that they loved #EnglishTea , I have since learned that the actually prefer #herbal teas.  This box for sal at the local supermarket is full of #roses for #rosetea. They also like #lavender tea, #chamomile, #jasmine, and others.  Makes the #cafe very fragrant!

Breakfast at IchiBakery

22 Jan

Ichi Bakery was our first stop in Shanghai! We came out of the xujiahui metro station and found this cute spot. Very lovely inside. Offers brunch, afternoon tea, and dinner.

Yummy!  I prefer scrambled eggs and forgot to say. So this was my first time eating sunnyside up!  Brave 🙂

These eggs were poached, but still cold inside!  Like refrigerated cold ~ maybe how they do it here? Not sure.

Came with the bread, salad, fruit bowl, and choice of drink! The pastry was so flaky and delicious!

These were some of the best drinks ive had in China. They were perfect, including the hot chocolate I ordered. Coffee was starbucks quality。

Bad Translations: Blueberry Muffin

3 Jan

20150101_163604[1]Lol, I ordered a “blueberry muffin” at this really sweet cafe near home.  The cafe is 4 stories and you can go up on the top floors to sit and watch the world go by.  They told me the blueberry muffin had blueberry sauce poured over it, and I thought that sounded like something good.  Then I got this huge, totally awesome creature with whipped cream and blueberry sauce!  Unfortunately, they gave use clear plastic gloves to eat it instead of a fork, so it was slightly messy. But DELICIOUS!
