Phoenix Food Boutique, San Gabriel, CA

After the hot pot, it was dessert time.

Mango Creme Custard

Mango Custard Cubes

Judgment: Not exactly what I was expecting, but I do like a custard once in a while. It's rare, but there are times that I like this stuff. This was pretty good. Plenty of mango bits inside the custard and it had a good texture to it. It reminded me of eating a fresh mango, but with the texture that mimicked the firm tofu. 7 / 10

Fresh Fruit Tropical Tea

Passion Fruit Tea with Fruit Bits

Judgment: The tea was SO sour! The first few sips had my face sucked in like that episode of the Simpsons where those shelbyville guys steal the lemon tree from Bart and his friends. The father of the boy that stole it bites into a lemon and slowly his faces just sucks into itself. Aside from that, I remember drinking something similar to this before at a cantonese style restaurant that used to be open in Cerritos. In the end, the fruit really offsets the sour taste of the tea and they came together fairly well. 6 / 10

Conclusion: The dessert shop gets CRAZY packed. We barely snagged a 4-person table for ourselves but even then, the shop gets really crowded to the point of we're sitting shoulder to shoulder. The parking to this place is actually behind the restaurant.

This place gets a C-Rank.
