It’s nice to meet up with old friends to catch up. Alice and I met up with two old friends and a new one at Cha Me. Cha over some Taiwanese drinks and snacks. There are three locations of Cha Me. Cha in Toronto. I’ve been to the one on Yonge Street near Finch and that was the first time that I had their infamous shaved ice cream. It’s not just shaved ice, but shaved ice cream! I remember what an incredible dessert day that was. ^_^
I haven’t tried the popcorn chicken at Cha Me. Cha so this was definitely the first time to try. We were here on a Sunday late afternoon and the place was already bustling! This location of Cha Me. Cha is located inside the new-ish Langham Place across from Peachtree Centre at Kennedy and Highway 7 in Markham.
We each ordered a drink and shared their snacks. I ordered a tall glass of grass jelly drink. Alice ordered a Belgian Truffles Milk Tea that tasted like you were eating chocolate truffles haha. I really liked my refreshing glass of grass jelly. When it arrived, all you could see through the glass cup was the black grass jelly. It was like the entire drink was grass jelly, which it kind of was. It was very clean-tasting and refreshing. 🙂
Our snacks arrived! We ordered two baskets of popcorn chicken (I really, really wanted a lot of these), a basket of Taiwanese sausage, and octopus balls.
The popcorn chicken were in bigger pieces than I expected (or desire). I found that one basket of popcorn chicken was seasoned better than the other one — one was little bit saltier, which I liked. Overall though, I didn’t love the way they prepared their popcorn chicken (I am a popcorn chicken fanatic) because I found that the pieces were too big and it seemed like I was eating small versions of chicken nuggets instead of eating popcorn chicken. There is definitely a difference! XD
The Taiwanese sausage was pretty good. I wish there were more of it haha.
The octopus balls were really good! I found it interesting that they served this with ketchup.
Anyway, that’s all we had on this visit. I would love to try their shaved ice cream and other desserts next time to see how it compares to the location in North York. I’ll have to return another time. 🙂
