Great place to shop

At the risk of being repetitive, the ice cream is unbelievably excellent. Coconut,vanilla,strawberry, chocolate, banana, mango etc. Some of the more obscure flavours may be an acquired taste, like lotus root, green tea and black sesame. Love stocking up on the frozen yum cha items and mock meats - handy to have in the freezer for the occasional lazy/quick meal. You can also buy some of the restaurant's own sauces in jars. Their chilli sauce is great but pretty darn hot. I am never allowed to visit my mum in law without taking some of their vegan ice cream and barbeque not pork
This shop has improved more and more since my previous review. They now have a wider range of non traditional and fascinating ice cream flavours, such as rose-vanilla, popcorn, maple walnut and (my favourite) date-ginger - very strong and tangy but wonderful. They have also added a huge range of desserts, cakes, baked and raw cheesecakes, brownies, cookies, etc, all made by them on site, as is the ice cream.
Their raw cheesecakes deserve a special mention. Normally I never order these in raw restaurants as they usually are a heavy slab of coconut fat and nuts too richly flavoured that leave me nauseous. In contrast, at Green Gourmet/ Vegan's Choice the filling is whipped, light and fluffy and delicately flavoured. I could probably eat a whole cake and only feel a little bit sick!
My only regret is that they no longer sell their restaurant's chilli sauce in jars to take home. I don't know why, as they still sell some of their other sauces. It is the best chilli sauce I know of. I can only feed my addiction now by going into the restaurant and ordering extra bowls of it to go with my yum cha!
I can't believe it's not ice cream!, take home frozen yum cha, Very nice staff
It takes a long time to pack the ice cre, Can't buy chilli sauce for home
