[NYC - Chinatown] Mango Mango Dessert

I had really been missing Asian desserts for some time. One day when I got turned around in Chinatown, I found Mango Mango Dessert and grabbed a menu. My friend and I went back the next week and had some delicious, cheap mango desserts.

Deciding which dessert to order took a little longer than it should. There were just so many seemingly delicious options. I knew I wanted something mango and I was pretty sure I wanted something with glutinous rice balls, but then I saw they had pudding, so I was torn.

I opted for the mango with mango ice cream and glutinous rice balls. I don't really remember what it was called and my friend ordered in Chinese for us ><. You should be able to find it easily on the picture menu, though.

My friend noticed that they had a combo special, too. It included a snow white slush, mango pudding, and your choice of bowl. We ended up choosing the fruit bowl and mango ice cream with sago and lychee jelly in mango and watermelon juice since we had already ordered the mango bowl. The combo was $11.50, so quite reasonable for the amount of food you get.

The slush was interesting. It may not be for everyone. It is not really a slush. There are no ground up ice pebbles. Instead, there is jelly on the bottom, a layer of mango juice, and a top layer of coconut cream, and topped with little chunks of mango. To eat it, you should mix all layers together to get the maximum flavor experience. I only tried a little bit because I am sensitive to coconut, but it was a really flavorful, rich drink. I don't know if I would find it to be super refreshing in the middle of summer, but it is definitely worth a try.

The other choices we made were pretty good. I was a major fan of the mango with glutinous rice balls bowl just because I really like mango. If you're not a mango superfan, I recommend the fruit bowl we ordered. It did have mango, but there were other flavors that complimented the mango quite well.

[Skincare Review] Head-to-Head Test: Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. La Mer The Concentrate

 As promised, here is my blog comparing the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. the La Mer The Concentrate. FTC disclaimer: I was sent both of these items for free in exchange for my full and honest review. I tried to be as scientific as humanly possible. I had a blinded reviewer (my mom) who was actually unaware I was even doing a skincare test, so her opinion is completely blinded and she tried really hard to give a full and honest review of differences she noticed. I did this for 2 weeks. In the 14 days before the test, I was testing out the Estee Lauder ANP product in exchange for my review. I had enough product left (and actually received a second sample to test). My nighttime skincare routine was the same as usual. 1) DHC Cleansing Oil - Buy from YesStyle | Buy from Amazon 2) Micellar Water (for eye makeup) 3) Rosette Cleansing Paste Sea Clay Smooth - Buy From YesStyle  | Buy from Amazon I used my PMD Clean (from CAUSEBOX) to wash my face.
