Our short trip to Kuala Lumpur brought up three favourites, two of which we returned to twice. Kafe Snowflake is one of the two of course (the other is an awesome dim sum resturant: review out this Friday), and is really a Taiwanese-inspired chain of iced desserts which would satiate your sugar cravings as well as give brief reprieve from the heat and humidity outside. You might also be interested to know that everything is claimed to be handmade and cooked fresh everyday, with no artificial flavours, artificial colouring or preservatives added. Great reasons to well... order more :)
There's this beeping device (or as they would like to call it, Beeping UFO) that is supposed to beep and flash once your orders are ready for collection. I guess it does help to prevent congestion at the counter, though I'm really more intrigued by what it says on the device: "Psst... Now you know why Taiwan is so much more technologically advanced... ALIENS..." *speechless*
A lot of personal mix-and-matching goes on here, so you can take your pick of things like peanuts, red bean, yam and a range of jellies, as well as fruits like mango, peach and papaya. You
Grass or sea coconut jellies are also recommended for that added layer of texture. Some of the desserts come with an extra cup of creamer too, but I will leave it up to you on how much you want to crank up on the sugar rush.
If Singapore had such desserts, I'm sure I would have them often. We do have the soy ice-cream from Mr Bean (which I personally quite like) but soy shaved ice with red beans, peanuts and grass jelly seems like an even better deal.
For the less adventurous, there's always the traditional Cheng Tng on offer. Not as satisfying as the others for sure, but does the job of cooling you down too I suppose.
About RM6.50-RM8 each. Pretty large portions by the way.
