We were suppose to go to Downtown Vancouver on Friday but the weather network side it would rain that today, we listened to it...BAD IDEA! It did not rain AT ALL!! After waiting for like 5 hours to see if it would rain, we went to West Broadway to have a little walk while our dad went to the dentist around that area. It was burning hot (well at least to us) with no clouds in sight, luckily we found a ice cream store! It was Marble Slab Creamery (in case you hadn't noticed yet). We always wanted to go to Marble Slab but we never had a chance and we thought it was expensive too. Marble Slab (for anyone who doesn't know) is where you can choose a flavor of ice cream, and then you choose what you want the ice cream to be mixed with (like smarties, white chocolate etc). And then they mixed the topping and the ice cream together using a spatula in a stir fry sorta way.
On the table:
We got a a ice cream to share, we didn't want to buy to much because we still have a whole box and bucket full of ice cream in our freezers that we need to eat.
Medium Green Tea with Passion Fruit Pearls
The Green Tea Ice Cream wasn't anything really special, it was just green tea ice cream that could use more green tea flavor, I couldn't taste any. The pearls on the other hand was amazing! The moment you bite into it, it bursts into your mouth with passion fruit juice! The passion fruit it sweet and has a lot of passion fruit flavor in it.
The service is good, the employee answered all our questions about the product and promotions. The ice cream is average and the mix in is nice. We are not too sure if we would come back considering the price and how the ice cream (without the mix in) is something you can get anywhere. But if we were craving for the passion fruit pearls we would definitely come!
