Yesterday, we ventured to Doolami Dessert, an Asian dessert place located on the Vancouver West Side. They are opened from 7 – 11pm every night, although I believe they are opened later on weekends.
Location: 8030 Granville Street in the Marpole neighbourhood.
It was our first time at Doolami. Previously, I’ve tried their take-home pint Matcha and Durian ice creams, which were very strong in flavour. The Matcha ice cream, in particular, had very little sweetener and you can fully taste the bitterness characteristic of grounded matcha. Doolami claims to use no additives in their ice creams, and real fruits only.
Onto what we’ve ordered….
Mango Pomelo Sago – $8.99
I believe the original price on the menu was $6.99 as mango is currently not in season. The waitress informed us that they have imported fresh mango from Australia, therefore raising the price of the dessert to $8.99. Fair enough.
The Mango Pomelo Sago was served chill – just the way I like it. It had a nice smooth texture, and was extremely creamy. There was a perfect harmony of pomelo, sago and mango in the dish.
Red Bean Soup with a bunch of beans – $8.99
This sweet soup contained a little bit of everything: soft peanuts, lotus seeds, red beans, taro pearls, and yam pearls. The sweetness level was just right. Overall, It was a hearty (and nutritious) treat on a cold day!
One nit-pick: I specifically asked for the soup to be served hot, but it came lukewarm. We would’ve preferred a hot dish, but we didn’t want it microwaved.
They have this neat little photo printer that lets you print photos from your phone/tablet for *FREE! All you need is the WeChat app.
*2-3 photos per table 😛
