Thus, I present to you a partial visuals roundup!
1. Green Tea Chai Latte from Le Gourmand
As opposed to regular chai lattes, this very foamy (and not-too-spicy) variation is steamed using a pre-made powder mix supposedly containing green tea. Definitely more milky than sweet, the drink was ideal for warming up on a chilly afternoon. I also noticed several reviewers had highly recommended the Chocolate Chip Cookie, so I suppose I'll attempt a gooey, sugary baked good on my next visit to evaluate whether it really does live up to the hype.
5. Mean Mocha Smoothie (w/ Banana) from Booster Juice
Had it not been for my hour-and-a-half delay, I likely would have returned home for dinner. But as luck would have it, I found myself staring at a food court bursting with supper options. Basil Box was a restaurant/stall that particularly stood out to me, especially since I had glanced through numerous positive experiences with their completely customizeable meal option.
The theory is simple: a step-by-step process is used to guide the diner through the available base, topping, and sauce options.
Step 1 consisted of choices of white rice, rice noodles, brown rice, and salad greens.
Steps 2 and 3 were comprised of vegetable and meat topping options, ranging from diced roasted sweet potato to chopped peppers and corn kernels.
Steps 4 and 5 involved adding the finishing touches: mild or spicy sauce(s) and chopped peanuts if desired.
And it didn't. Quite frankly, neither items did.
The box was undeniably the most satisfying meal I've purchased from a food court, and the Thai Iced Tea only elevated the experience to even greater heights. Hidden within the colourful layers were bursts of flavour and absolute scrumptiousness.
