This building fools you:
A Wish‘s creativity stands out amongst the shops on 8th Street SW, however. When you walk in, the impression you get makes this place almost a bit too sparkling new for this block and the apartment building it is in.
The food and drinks they offer are a mix of both Western and Asian fare, so they have to manage both the fancy schmancy espresso die-hards and the trendy bubble tea crowd, for example. For tea lovers like me, they have both Western specialities such as Earl Grey and traditional Chinese favourites such as Oolong. Maybe the title of this post should have been “‘a wish’ for tea tasters come true”?
So, what’s for lunch anyways?
You can see the kitchen in action through the “baker’s window” through the seating area which I really enjoyed.
The space they have is small, but I like the fun variety. I’m pretty sure this will become my dessert destination, whether it’s Japanese castella cake or Tiramisu. Let’s hope one day they’ll put signs out on 7th ave to direct people to head on in. Wouldn’t that be a good idea?
I won’t give you warnings this time like the last time I did a food review. Well, maybe the fact that you shouldn’t reach in to get an egg tart prematurely without being careful with how hot the foil might be.
