As a result of being drawn into W (no pun intended) though, my departure time ended up being too close to dinner time, which coincided with the last shuttle bus for the weekend.
fresh elements has a long-established BOGO deal on their Black and Green Milk Teas with tapioca, along with $5.00 specialty drinks. For the first time ever, I try their Mango Pomelo Sago, which is creamier than expected but nonetheless refreshing. Towards the bottom of the drink was a ginormous chunk of mango flesh; interestingly enough, it was bland in comparison to the rest of the beverage - an indication of their heavy dependence of artificial sweeteners.
I've noticed that they added combo options and "Charcoal Oolong" to their menu, along with Fresh Fruit Matcha Slushies and flavoured egg waffles (or have they always been available?). I decided to try the Coconut Egg Waffle, opting to stick to one flavour since others may be a hit or miss.
But there are obvious reasons why customers would return to a stall with nonexistent customer service: the taste, quality, and price are acceptable enough such that the attitude of the staff members can be disregarded.
Dinnertime was approaching and the next bus wasn't scheduled for another forty minutes, so I turned to Pizza Garden for a quick fix.
Among the vast options of the Neapolitan-Style Pizza, my selection was the Greek. Other varieties included Spicy Barbecue Chicken, Hawaiian, classic Cheese and Pepperoni, etc., with each individual slice priced at a very reasonable $2.50. Pizza Garden also offered a combo deal consisting of two slices and one soft drink for $6.00.
Being situated right at the foot of the Aberdeen SkyTrain station also makes it a prime location for hungry commuters. Take note though: bring cash if you want to avoid the service fee.
