When it comes to desserts many can’t say no to
which brings us to the ultimate question and it safe to say a third world
problem - where to eat? An endless question that will have you going in
circles. So here is a specially curated dessert and snack guide for your post
meal or even pre meal in SkyAvenue. With over 50 outlets to choose from, here
is our top four go to.
The Eight Ounce Coffee was established about
half a decade ago and is a popular joint with numerous outlets all over Kuala
Lumpur and one in Genting. Owned by Tan Boon Wy, this place knows how to keep
their customers coming back with its addictive coffee, delicious cakes, and
pastries. They pride themselves on their high quality ingredients as many of
their customers are health conscious. Here are the top 3 must tries when one is
at Eight Ounce Coffee.
Burnt Cheese Cake
Not your average burnt cheesecake this perfect
texture fluffy cake is known for its distinct taste thanks to its ginger
infused flavouring. The ginger juice used is freshly made in the in-house
kitchen for each cake batch. Not overly sweet with a solid base and smooth top
this burnt cheesecake hits all the right notes.
Orange Flavoured Chocolate Tart
Orange and chocolate generally go well so it
is no surprise that this union is no exception. The orange flavoured chocolate
tart comes in a fresh sugar dough shell tart, the outside layer is chewy and
does not crumble easily. To us this is good as you don’t want the tart to fall
apart. The orange taste does not overpower the chocolate tart but in fact it complements
it. And for those worried about their sugar intake, this tart is harmless! It
is topped off with crushed peanuts, quite a chocolate beauty indeed.
Egg drop by Rise and Shine, Tapestry
This item is from the Tapestry menu, which is
also under Eight Ounce Coffee owned by Tan Boon Wy. This upscale picturesque
cafe can be found in Kuala Lumpur with items such as this eggy temptation is
also available on the Eight Ounce Coffee menu. Bet the name itself has one
wondering what is going on with this egg dish, the answer is simple upon eating
this itsy bitsy looking sandwich the egg in the middle will fall out, literally
causing your egg to drop. Of course that is not the highlight, the sandwich
features cheddar cheese, soft scrambled free range kampung eggs, caramelized
onions, sirachi and aioli sauce! What seals the deal is in the middle of the
well cooked egg there is a sarsi-glazed beef bacon, and no the bacon is not
sweet. In fact the combination of the sirachi sauce along with the sarsi-glazed
beef bacon gives you that little spicy kick with hints of sweetness on your
palate. A definite taste to remember.
Interested in a magical concoction? Hailing
from Taiwan, Dream Colour is all about fresh fruit juices that not only taste
good but are also Instagram worthy. Packed with nutrients and antioxidants,
this layered juices and tea are perfect to have either before or after a light
meal. The drinks are inspired by the North Pole’s Aurora lights and in Taiwan
it is known as Dream Cool. The items on the menu in Taiwan and here are not
identical but is catered based on the local’s palate. The use of Butterfly pea
flowers are in abundance in their teas and juices.
Top sellers would be the Twilight, Dreamy
Dragon and Hawaii.
The Twilight is popular among customers and
consist of Butterfly Pea Flower, kumquat lemon, and strawberry. The former is
known for its antioxidants and it is said to be good for hair and eyes when
taken frequently. The dry flowers are usually soaked minimum for a night before
being used in the drink. Upon shaking the bottle the flavours and colours will
mix, and due to the sour notes from the lemon the drink turns purple! Now
that’s science, specifically PH level in the drink. Taste notes are a little
sour with a hint of sweetness as you continue drinking the juice. If you feel
like cleansing your palate then this would be great!
Dragon fruit, guava, and mango is all it takes
to have you finishing every last drop and wanting more. This combination is
definitely sweeter than the Twilight with minimal sour notes. With a strict
ratio for each series, the fruits used are directly from their supplier in
Kuala Lumpur hence guaranteeing complete dreamy dragon freshness.
This thirst-quencher is made of orange,
passionfruit, and mango, the colour seen is nothing short of beautiful with
different shades of orange yellow tones to it. Its sweet but not the kind that
would make you feel nauseous after. In fact the sweetness is solely from the
fruits blended itself.
Here’s a tip before shaking the drinks do
ensure you have already taken a picture of your magical drink on the little
light on the counter where the drinks are usually placed to take pictures as
the light shines from below giving the drink an all new hue to it.
Despite recently being established, this
Chinese dessert shop in Resorts World Genting is the second branch with the
first being in Setapak. Gaining popularity, this dessert place is catered for
those who want something healthy and traditional as many older generation Asians
would be familiar with this. Both Lol Soon Kee and Dream Colour are under the
same company which is Rainbow Dreams. Their popular go to items on the menu is
as follows – sesame soup, Grand Champion, and Korean pair with peach gum.
The sesame soup is a bowl of goodness loved by
the older folks and comes in three different flavours from sesame to peanut and
walnut. In order to achieve the texture and taste the sesame soup has, it goes
through three essential steps which are bake, grind, and cook. What happens is
the Lol Soon Kee headquarters helps precook the sesame before sending it over.
If you naturally love the taste of sesame then you are bound to like this,
however for those who are not sesame fans may take some getting used to as it
can be rather overpowering. Then again very subjective.
This right here is indeed a champion, having
some of the most loved ingredients in its dish such as red bean, black
glutinous, sago, sweet potato, yam, and coconut milk it is no surprise why many
keep coming back for more. When you dig into this the first thing that comes to
mind is the famous “bubur cha-cha”, similar to that Malaysian/Singaporean
dessert taste notes wise. The sweetness tasted in the Grand Champion is
from the ingredients itself used, and as for texture it is nice and smooth with
a little chewy bits here and there such as the sweet potato and yam.
Korean Pear With Peach Gum
A stew like dessert,
this will have you reminiscing of the famous Chinese lotus seed dessert fondly
known as Leng Chee Kang. It takes
approximately 2 hours to cook this after which it is refrigerated. Key
ingredients includes red dates, goji berry, longan fruit, white fungus, peach
resin, and not to forget the big juicy Korean pear right in the middle. The
overall sweetness of this particular item depends on the batch of pears brought
in, Lol Soon Kee usually restock the pears based on demand which is rather
frequent. This would be the perfect thirst quencher to keep your body cool.
This item is a signature dessert on both the
Korean and Malaysian menu, with flavours such as cinnamon, chocolate and honey
barbecue. Many tend to stick with the classic cinnamon coating. The texture of
the churros is crunchy yet tender on the inside and having it coated with
cinnamon really seals the deal. It comes in the alphabet U shape.
What is cold on the inside and hot on the
outside? The answer would be chocolate filling churros. You can also opt for
other filling such as chocolate, strawberry, and cream cheese. The chocolate filling has the perfect texture
of creamy to it without it oozing out of churros completely.
Fries with Nacho Cheese
made in heaven, well dessert heaven at least, everybody loves fries and cheese
and throwing in churro fries with nacho cheese you have an unforgettable
combination. The churro fries comes with different toppings, such as nacho,
cheddar cheese, and hot chili. All of which can be easily paired with the
churro fries. The churro fries with nacho cheese sees the fries drenched in
nachos sauce with a wee bit of mayonnaise and lots of dry parsley leaves atop.
It is a lighter this compared to wedges and cheesy sauce as the churros are not
only light but crunchy too as compared to potato cuts.
A Spanish dessert that has stolen the heart of many
here in Malaysia is a must have on our dessert list. There are up to 44 outlets
in total across the states, so there is no short supply when it comes to
Llaollao. A froyo treat that sees countless toppings and fruits to choose from.
There are various options on the menu such as tub, petitllao, llaoglass,
sensation, sensation plus, sanum, and smoothie to name a few. Among
them these are the three bestsellers- Mango smoothie plus, Sanum, and medium
Mango fans can indulge in this super rich and
healthy smoothie. Key ingredients include mangoes, frozen yoghurt, yoghurt mix,
fresh blended mangoes and mango syrup. One thing you would notice as you dig
into this smoothie is how smooth it is on the top as skimmed milk is added in
the blend giving it that perfect texture. For those concern about the sweetness
can opt to share it with a friend as the portion is big.
Quite the sight to behold, the Sanum features
various layers packed to the brim, with the base being the frozen yoghurt,
followed by fruits of your choice- these can be anything between mangoes to
kiwi, strawberries, watermelon and pineapples, crunches of sorts such as
muesli, granola, and Oreo balls, and topped with more yoghurt with their
bestseller caramel biscuit sauce covering the top. The sauce complements the
caramel biscuit crumbs below the yoghurt and as you continue scooping in you
will find each ingredient blending well together and coated with the yoghurt.
Be mindful though of how you scoop the insides as they can easily fall out due
to it being filled right to the top.
Mother of chocolates well that and yoghurt
too! This froyo is filled with three toppings, the likes of granola, chocolate
crunch ball, and topped with hazelnut sauce dubbed Choco Rock! For those who
love the Italian chocolate Ferrero Rocher will come to find this item to be
their new favourite with similar taste notes. Talk about balance, this is ideal
for a cheat day with the healthy part being the frozen yoghurt whilst the
chocolate is you allowing yourself to be a little naughty with your diet.
