#2 Bubur Cha Cha – RM 23

The coconut ice cream of this dessert is the main star, as it contains the crux of Bubur Cha Cha. To accompany the ice cream and to intensify the taste of the Malaysian dish Chef Marcus Low places coconut pearls on a pumpkin crème brûlée with a thin sweet potato cake at the bottom. To top it off he adds a foam that has the distinguishable essence of Gula Melaka.

#1 Shibuya Honey Toast – RM17

This fluffy and sweet dessert comes with two scoops of vanilla ice cream, drizzled with honey and a cloud of whipped cream on the side. Great for sharing as it is cut into pieces without compromising its original shape. But it’s fine if you don’t want to share because trust me if you’re like me you would want the whole toast to yourself!

#2 Shibuya Chocolate Strawberry Toast – RM 20

While having the same fluffy toast, the top part is coated with silky chocolate and topped with diced strawberries. Oh and if I forgot to mention, it also comes with two scoops of vanilla ice cream, and a side of that amazing whipped cream. Another great contender for sharing with your friends, but it’s also great for an individual.

#1 S’Mores Pie – RM10.50

Ever wondered what it would be like to sit around a campfire and roast the marshmallows until it becomes gooey and squash it between two crackers? Well now just take that thought and fuse it with pie. Yup, ladies and gentlemen there you have it, the S’Mores Pie! The pie is filled with dark chocolate and roasted marshmallow, and if you want it sweeter you can change the dark chocolate to milk chocolate. The crust of the pastry from the pie serves as the cracker and it is amazing because it compliments the gooeyness of the marshmallows so well.

It may sound too much, but trust me, the three main flavours compliment each other so well, it almost becomes indescribable. I guess you just have to try it out for yourself because it might just turn a sceptic into a believer in pies.

#1 The Ying & Yang – RM21.90

This unique waffle is one of their best sellers and it is also Malaysia’s first dual waffle! So what this means is that the waffle is half charcoal and half classic flavoured. It is served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, almond bits, diced mango and a strawberry compote. There is no question why this is one of their best sellers because the flavours and textures come together in unison. The soft and creamy texture of the ice cream and the slight crisp of the waffle is just a heavenly combination that you must try.

#2 The Red Velvet Pancake – RM25.90

Stacked with 3 pancakes that are stuck together with lemon fromage, and the sweetening flavours of a scoop of Hokey Pokey ice cream drizzled with caramel sauce, this dessert will make you drool as you think about it. The tangy taste of the red velvet is fused greatly with the sweet and sugary taste of the Hokey Pokey ice cream as it counters the zesty aftertaste. The flavour combinations of this dessert give your tongue a literal party as you take your first bite of it.

https://www.instagram.com/p/BTn2br8g2e6/

Shugatori Dessert Cafe brings common waffles and pancakes to another world, therefore you have to try these dishes! It is a bit pricey, but the flavour combinations and artistic designs will definitely make up for the price.

5. Molten Chocolate Cafe

Yes, I know that this is a franchise, but Molten is basically chocolate heaven, so I had to include it! As they produce a chocolate lovers dream on a plate, Molten Chocolate Cafe was an exception for this article. With their fettuccine crepes and their sizzling brownies, this cafe just had to be mentioned.

#1 Fettuccine Crepe – RM28.50

This may sound a bit off-putting, however, trust me, you won’t regret ordering this item. It’s literally, a dessert pasta! The crepes are sliced thinly as they start to form into a long flat shape, hence the name Fettuccine Crepe. The “pasta sauce” is milk chocolate generously drizzled over the crepes and it comes with a side of premium vanilla ice cream. This dish is my personal favourite and I would recommend this to anyone who loves chocolate!

https://www.instagram.com/p/BX037D_j9Mm/

#2 Sizzling Brownies – RM26.50

When people think of sizzling plates, they think of savoury food, like chicken chop, and a steak, but never a dessert! At Molten they serve up a piping hot sizzling brownie topped with their premium vanilla ice cream. The bite-size marshmallows swim in sticky, bubbling chocolate sauce as the brownie soaks up any excess chocolate. You might be thinking that the ice cream will melt, and yeah, you’re right it will, but that’s the best part! When you take in the first initial bite the contrasting temperatures of hot and cold will intrigue your senses. Then as the ice cream starts to melt, the vanilla and chocolate start to fuse together to create a mesmerising flavour combination that will make you fall in love with this dish!

https://www.instagram.com/p/BPFo0G0DlB6/

What excites me about molten is that they use such a basic ingredient like chocolate and they make it in ways that is unique! Such as making fettuccine crepes, or having sizzling brownies, the uniqueness to their desserts are never ending and they will have you wanting more every time you think of chocolate.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1. Are the menus in dessert cafes in Damansara Uptown usually vegan-friendly?

Unfortunately, most desserts are suitable for the vegetarians but not for people who practice veganism. As desserts mostly do not contain meat, many desserts are compatible with a vegetarian diet. Indeed, veganism does not allow any product derived from animal exploitation in addition to animal-based products such as milk, eggs, cream and honey. These products are regularly added into pastry making, therefore the menus in dessert cafes are rarely vegan-friendly.

2. What are the food ingredients in dessert cafes in Damansara Uptown that you should avoid if you have allergies?

Here are eight things that cause about 90% of food allergy reactions: milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts such as walnuts, almonds, pine nuts, Brazil nuts, and pecans. Soy, wheat, fish, and shellfish also are the food that you should avoid if you have allergies.

3. What makes a good dessert in dessert cafes in Damansara Uptown?

We are not going to train you as a food critic, but you need to know a bit about the world of sweat desserts. A dessert needs to have the same variety, and balance of textures, flavors, temperatures, colors, shapes, and height as any other dish.  To achieve this, dessert presentations benefit from these five elements: Base: typically, crispy, or cake-like. Filling: creamy element or ripe fruit.

4. How do we distinguish desserts in dessert cafes in Damansara Uptown from other food?

Desserts can be defined and identified as a usually sweeter course that concludes a meal. This definition includes a range of courses ranging from fruits, or dried nuts to multi-ingredient cakes and pies.  In this world, there are many variations of desserts that are different from other cultures.

5. What are exactly fondant, and crème brulee that can be found in Dessert Cafes in Damansara Uptown?

Perhaps here are terms that you will encounter when you go to the dessert café. Fondant is a sugar-based covering for cakes that is a substitute for traditional icing. Basically, crème brulee is a creamy, pudding-like, baked custard with a brittle top of melted sugar that cracks when you gently tap it with a spoon.

Cocoa contains flavonols, which are known to have lots of health benefits such as reduce levels of cholesterol, lower blood pressure, lower blood sugar, reduce inflammation, lower risk of heart attacks and strokes.

8. What do you need to expect if you come to dessert cafes in Damansara Uptown?

9. Where is the best dessert cafes in Damansara Uptown that offer delicious chocolate in the menu?
