But sometimes coats just aren't enough.
While some may exclaim that I was a spoiled child (either that or a de-privileged one), I must confess that I can't recall Happy Meals being part of my daily lunch regimen. It was a sometimes thing, much like Lunchables.
And for the first time in over a decade, I set out to obtain my favourites, all while having flashbacks of the many Pokémon collectibles I acquired (from both McD's and BK) during my N64-battle days.
Making my way northbound, I noticed that numerous restaurants and cafés had put away their outdoor patios. Pastel was also one amongst the many.
It was evident that Pastel had utilized pre-mixed green tea powder, leading it to share strikingly similar properties with the one from Uncle Tetsu's Matcha Café. Candidly speaking, it was less fragrant and even sweeter than Uncle's, yet I appreciated the beverage much more.
Based on previous experiences, I learned to lower my expectations in regards to the amount of filling/toppings included in a standard crepe. Crepe de Licious produces scrumptious sweet and savoury crepes, though the team isn't particularly generous with ingredients. This, unfortunately, also tends to be the case for Mazazu Crepe in Vancouver.
The Brownie Crepe was seriously sinful. Absolutely chocolatey and thoroughly diverse in flavours and textures, the dessert was delightfully indulgent, epitomizing the very qualities a potentially diabetes-inducing creation should possess.
As we've finally arrived at the final segment of this post, it's time for the moment of truth: the unveiling of The Peanuts Movie toys!
