A Hong Kong cafe in Vancouver is serving up the most surreal desserts. You won’t know whether to play with it or eat it. That’s because the specialty at Snackshot is a Mahjong set, complete with cold hard cash.

I don’t spend money. I eat money 💵 . This mahjong dessert was $20 but you get a cash #rebate of $1,000 HKD and $100 USD 💵 sounds like a good deal to me . . . . #dessert #hkstyledessert #redbeancake #sweets #yvrdesserts #vancouverdessert #food #foodporn #foodart #mahjong #bills #money
For those who aren’t familiar, the popular tile-based game originated in China. It’s a game that requires a lot of observation and memory (and for this particular spot, a sweet tooth).
The dish comes out looking super realistic but it’s actually all 100% edible. The tiles are made out of a red bean coconut pudding and the money is made out of rice paper.
The attention to detail is crazy and this spot could fool a lot of patrons. But it’s definitely a fun spot to get some sweet treats where you’re actually encouraged to play with your food! (Sorry, mom).
When: Open everyday from 3pm until midnight
