So the black bun cake mixture didn’t set in the pastry, though what overflowed set like lava... but made nice mince pies! Comments/advice please as I’ve never seen an actual #blackbun
If it’d been in a big enough tin and stayed encased in the pastry then sat for the ten days the recipe said, would it have been okay? #cleaningtheoven
Coming in with a bang taking over an old auto body shop near Metrotown, this enormous renovated cafe gives Burnaby the brand new hipster brunch hub it has been needing. La forêt is a spacious open-concept cafe that offers an assortment of in-house-made pastries and desserts displayed in large glass cases. They also offer sandwiches and paninis, brunch platters, waffles and bingsoo. They serve timbertrain coffee, as well as TWG tea, tea lattes and smoothies. They live up to their name having it feel like a forest inside their bright establishment decorated with real plants, including a large planter in the middle with banana trees. Their decor is industrial with aspects of nature with their concrete floors, high ceilings, exposed brick, stone walk, white marble table tops, cute string lights, skylights and large windows. They can seat 84 people and even have a small outdoor patio and their own little parking lot.
Not seen on the online menu, this sandwich has a good amount of warm, moist chicken and refreshing crisp veggies. It was well seasoned and very tasty.
BULGOGI SANDWICH: this contains bulgogi which is a Korean marinated beef, romaine lettuce, mozzarella all stuffed in a cool black squid ink bun. It was tasty and filling, the meat had that korean bbq flavour but was a little too sweet in our opinion. The bun was nice and soft and although it has squid ink, it didn't have any different flavour than your typical white flour bun. However, it's suppose to have a lot of health benefits which they inform you of on their menu.
MUSHROOM SOUP: creamy soup with slices of mushroom throughout. It was quite bland and boring.
MANGO TART: This dessert, like their others, was beautiful. However, the flavour was underwhelming. The tart's pastry base was pretty much like a hard, dense sugar cookie. The base was too thick, and there was little to no custard at all. It was topped with chopped mango covered in a simple sugar glaze.
❌: They don't answer their phone no matter how many times you call.
