We ended up at Dairy Queen in Kits for dessert on Saturday night, after having dinner at Suika izakaya on West Broadway.
As I’m sure you’re aware, not all fast food joints are created equal, and some locations are better than others. Food and service at this particular free-standing DQ restaurant (Broadway & Trafalgar) in Kitsilano is consistently good. This location has been in operation for over 40 years, so they’ve had time to perfect their craft. Over the past few years that we’ve lived in Kits, we’ve enjoyed most of their ‘Eats & Treats’ – everything from birthday cakes, DQ log cakes, banana splits, and sundaes, to burgers & fries. And experiences are that much more pleasant when workers are always friendly and efficient.
If you feel like certain Dairy Queen locations skimp on your favorite blizzard toppings, you’ll find the opposite is true at this DQ. They always fill blizzards to the brim with loads of scrumptious goodies.
Have you seen those RiDQlous mini blizzard TV commercials? On this occasion, I just had to try a mini. I ordered a Georgia Mud Fudge Mini Blizzard ($2.99), and as expected, my ice cream was packed with crunchy pecans, moist brownie pieces, and swirled in chocolate fudge. It was actually the perfect size for me – often larger sizes are sweet soft serve overloads. Hubby had a Regular Dip Cone ($3.29) – you can’t go wrong with this DQ classic treat.
Similar to the White Spot across the street on West Broadway, you always know what to expect from Dairy Queen in Kits. And if you’re feeling guilty about the amount of ice cream you consumed, then you can work it off at the Yogacara yoga studio directly adjacent on Trafalgar 🙂
