I’m back to discover new places around Houston! I always feel excited to explore H-Town because there’s just so many things to do, eat, and see around the city. Today, I am going to take you along Bellaire Boulevard, right in the heart of Chinatown.

Over the weekend, Edward and I decided to try 5 dessert shops here in Houston. I have to warn you, it’s going to be a mouthwatering experience! Are you guys ready? Here we go!

Cane Island is inside Hong Kong Market along Bellaire Boulevard. I found this place that dishes out flavoured waffles along with specialty sugarcane drinks and milk tea.

Bae is cute and very Instagram-worthy place along Bellaire Boulevard (Chinatown) that makes delicious soft-serve ice cream or frozen yogurt.

Nu Cafe is a dessert bar that serves amazing shaved ice, which apparently takes them 10 hours to prepare. Take note: All their products are 100% natural!

Where: In front of Apple Store, 5085 Westheimer Rd 2nd Floor, Houston, TX 77056

The shop is famous for its ice pops, but we wanted to try their waffles. No regrets at all! Their waffles did not disappoint!
