Mother's Day Sakura Afternoon Tea at Trump Vancouver Champagne Lounge

It was supposed to be in Tsujiri in Richmond, but my dear 🐻was not able to snag a spot for us. Then an ad showed up that Trump Vancouver Champagne Lounge will be having a Sakura themed afternoon tea. Being a Japanophile myself, thrilled by what I saw, I have decided to go to Trump Vancouver the second time around to celebrate my first Mother's day as a mom.

We arrived in a busy lounge, with most of the patrons coming for the Sakura afternoon tea. I couldn't help admiring the tree tray that was used to display the tea set and the cherry blossom shaped cookie pops. After settling in our seats and making sure that my daughter is comfortable in her stroller; we reviewed the menu to decide which tea set and tea flavour to choose, my heart fluttered with glee upon seeing both motoyaki and takoyaki on the savoury selections. Wishing to take home some of their macarons later and treat myself with champagne, I picked the deluxe set (presented in a birdcage instead of the ring tree to display the tea sets)  and as for the tea, I chose Bain de Roses to match the floral theme.

We both shared all the three scones--how I wish there was two of each flavour because they were all really good. My husband gave me his share of the motoyaki and takoyaki as he is not a big fan of both. I gladly accepted the offer; extra motoyaki and takoyaki are always welcome (。✿‿✿。)! To show my appreciation, I gave him my mini doughnut in return.

Not wanting to save the best for last, I started working on my first takoyaki and motoyaki. The takoyaki, being deep fried created a pleasant crunch at each bite, and the oyster was absolute heaven once it reaches my tongue, I love how rich it was and had a hint of lemon to blend the creamy flavour of the sauce and oyster together.

My favourite dessert in the set, the Sakura pannacotta, had a base flavour of vanilla - which is a forever favourite flavour, with the simple addition of sakura on the top transformed a simple dessert into a piece of delicate edible art.

I am very thankful that I get to celebrate my first Mother's day with my infant daughter with an afternoon tea. I am looking forward to having more afternoon tea experience with her as she grows up. This mommy is very happy to go home, and looking forward to having her macaron, but alas, Concha has another plan. I guess he is not happy being left in the crate while we dined out.

Being a mom of a Labrador retriever, I forgave the glutton; every Lab mom is very familiar with this story.
