Restoran Ruby 祖传芝麻糊大王 or to be known as King of Chi Ma Wu at Pudu is one of a Chinese dessert or Chinese Tong Sui in KL to be. Waves of high praise for them upon their Sesame dessert.

King of Chi ma Wu (1)

We walk over from our pre-CNY dinner place at Restaurant Sek Yuen to here as just a stone throw away. Was told by my colleague that they are famous for a few dessert and try it out lo.

King of Chi ma Wu (3)

The stall looks more like herbal drink stall rather than a dessert stall.

Price is slightly on the high side.

King of Chi ma Wu (9)

Have you ever  seen a nice dessert art on your tong sui instead of those nice latte art. This is the first. A lot of heart and creativity in this.

The only thing stand out is Black Sesame which suits on the sign board. RM 3.50

King of Chi ma Wu (12)

I have high hopes on this Steamed Egg Custard @ RM 3.50.. However it was quite a let down in both taste and texture.

Well a dessert place that I wont return but again really depends on your taste bud. I do see alot people making take away like at least 3-10 per bag. Also again, the build up hype and comments for many people give me this set of expectation.

One of the most famous pastry shop in Bangsar is this Jaslyn Cakes that now had expended their outlet to Mont Kiara. Located just right opposite Kiara 163 or next to Baskin Robin.

Jaslyn Cakes (1)

Was told by my friends that the place serve pretty good cakes and I am not too sure as this is my first time here.

Jaslyn Cakes (2)

Heading here for tea for my colleague farewell. Love the Aussie style kind of concept cafe with natural lighting roof and will be very warm if you are seated outside. Inside only 2 small table.

Jaslyn Cakes (4)

Instantly I fall inlove with the offerings here as I am a pastry lover.

Jaslyn Cakes (5)

We are spoilt with choices as everything looks pretty good!

Jaslyn Cakes (6)

Even Bread section too.

Jaslyn Cakes (7)

Jaslyn Cakes (8)

Hoola, this is our gathering for farewell.

Jaslyn Cakes (9)

Coffee here is pretty decent too as it is not too strong in taste and suits to my liking. Not too aciditiy.

Jaslyn Cakes (10)

Jaslyn Cakes (12)

Jaslyn Cakes (13)

Overall, the cakes here are pretty good as it is moist, not too strong and dense. All the flavours we order has their own taste. Feels like it is freshly made for the day as my colleague went inside and wanted to make a take away, was told it is sold out.

Jaslyn Cakes (14)

I will definately be back again for a piece of cakes and coffee for my cuppa. Price range of cakes is from RM 8 – RM 20 per piece. Well, definately one of a cafe in KL that I would recommend.

One of the latest hype brunch place is this Rise & Shine by Tapestry located in Chow Kit, KL that sits right opposite of Hotel Stripes KL. A place currently well known for its insta worthy brunch place in KL. A place is indeed crazy for long queue over the weekend. If you are here inbetween 9.30am – 3pm, do prepare to queue for at least 60-90 minutes.

alot of sunlight comes up from the natural lighthing from the above. It do get pretty warm if you are seated in that area. But for picture purpose, many are willing.

When it comes to food, there are hits and misses as alot people say it is over hyped and not worth it. I have different views as there are some items worth to order and some are not.

Tapestry (11)

Alot people are here for one of their well known signature dish – Rise & Shine Egg Drop @ RM 22 . Indeed I would rate this as a must order item. Filled with fluffy soft-scrambled free-range kampong eggs with cheddar, caramelised onions, sriracha aioli on a hot cross bun. We ordered both to try out and thinks that the normal one is suffieicient to hit a satisfaction spot. The Sarsi-glazed beef at Rm 8 does not do much impact on the taste.. – recommended

Tapestry (14)

Tapestry (10)

LINGUINE with battered edamame, seasonal vegetables, tomato stew, served with freshly grated Grana Padano choose to add lamb meatballs. For a simple dish as dish, they have done it well.

Tapestry (12)

As first we were skeptical on this dish as we already ordered most of the item. However most of us are still not full from the first round order and decided to make this FRIED CHICKEN as add on. Lightly-battered fried chicken brushed with honey sriracha glaze and served with a side of fries and fennel salad. turns out to be better than we expected. The glaze is good, fill with mild sweet, souries and bitter taste that suits on the sauce and also fried to perfection. – recommended

Tapestry (13)

Tapestry (15)

A typical breakfast for RISE & SHINE EGGS BENEDICT, on bubble and squeak, poached eggs and bunga kantan hollandaise. you also can choose one of the 3 options below:
1. Beetroot-cured salmon
2. Sarsi-glazed beef bacon
3. Halloumi (v) @ RM 28

Tapestry (16)

The rest of the dish below are all sub par or so so  such as:

MEATBALL SUB Lamb meatballs drenched in tomato stew finished with Grana Padano shavings on a sub roll served with onion rings @ RM 28

Tapestry (18)

FRENCH TOAST, with fresh berries, mixed berries compote, Earl Grey gula melaka (v)(s) choose to add Sarsi-glazed beef bacon or ice cream. A dish which is not too bad which I think at this price they could have do much better.

Tapestry (17)

Tapestry (20)

PANCAKES, with mixed berries compote, fresh berries, edible chocolate soil and Earl Grey gula melaka (v)(s) choose to add Sarsi-glazed beef bacon or Halloumi (v) @ RM 25. Pancake is dense and hard. not the fluffy type. Give this a pass if you can.

Tapestry (19)

Tapestry (21)

Love their coffee as we ordered total of 8 different glass as it was a big group of 10 of us for birthday celebration. flavourful Long Black @ RM 10 & Latte @ RM 13. Coffee is pretty good and we all agree to it

Tapestry (22)

Tapestry (23)

Cakes were alright as there were 4 options on that day.

Tapestry (24)

If you are looking for some nice brunch place to try in KL or a nice cafe to chill after 3pm, I overall think this is not too bad. But if to wait for 60-90 minutes for a table I would say it is kinda waste of time.

3 item if you are not sure what to order and I think it is worth to try for first timer are:

  1. Rise & Shine Egg Drop
  2. RISE & SHINE EGGS BENEDICT
  3. FRIED CHICKEN or Linguine

The rest will be depending on your personal taste bud and they might improve along the way.

After meals, where do you go for desserts? Go Aftermeal loh, in Uptown Damansara. A new dessert place in PJ that is currently gaining its hype for its interesting combination of kakigori style of dessert. Been here consistently for 2 days to try out a few items. A dessert place which is quite similiar to Snowflakes. Can drop by here after on my favorite choice of Qing He Gu Korean BBQ , Mikoshi Japanese Shabu Shabu Buffet or TOMO Ramen shop which is just a stone throw away then just stroll over since parking here is a pain in the ass. Walking is my best option.

To be here on Monday night is the best as there is much lesser people as most of the shops around the area are not operating.

aftermeal (2)

aftermeal (1)

Menu is pretty direct as there are combinations sets and also some ala carte.

aftermeal (4)

The first drink that instantly caught my attention is their Classic Wintermelon Tea @ RM 9. One of the best drink I come so far as the winter melon tea is quite prominent in taste and not too sweet yet the transparent pearl gives you a suprise element as I was drinking it without any expectation. – Recommended

aftermeal (6)

Told the cashier to recommend what to have for first timer, he instantly recommend their best seller Iron Lady Milk Tea @ RM 22. RM 22 seems quite steep it is but is it worth it? Well, hats off for their signature. Love the tea taste of their kakigori, quite prominent and strong to my liking. aftermeal (9)

aftermeal (7)

 

aftermeal (10)

Taro balls were abit hit and misses as it is abit soft and I prefer mine slightly chewy. Not too sure about you as different people have different preference. Do goes well with the kakigori snow.

aftermeal (11)

As you dig in, you will slowly discover more stuff underneath the bed of ice. Will certainly go back for this anytime.

aftermeal (14)

As I tried on the first night, my friend instantly dm me why I didnt try their sour series. Which is one of their best. On the next day, I am back again to try out this 2. Classic Calamansi Yokan @ RM 16.

aftermeal (21)

If you are a sourish person, this will be spot on for you. Not to strong sourish that make your jaw instant numb but it is decent enough for me. A bowl of like sourish lemon in it. A perfect bowl for hot weather.

aftermeal (15)

Tried their Classic Grass Jelly @ RM 16. Well, this flavour is as nice as tastes like how Snowflakes started back in those days. Strong grass jelly taste in both ice and jelly. The amount of ice and taro balls given is definately more worth it than snowflakes at the moment.

aftermeal (17)

I find it a perfect dessert in the afternoon as a great thirst quencher.  tried 3 drinks in total. Their Winter melon lemon is one of the best I come across. (highly recommended) @ RM 10

aftermeal (22)

aftermeal (13)

Milk tea (according to the owner) she uses a premium ingredient and to me is quite bland. PassionFruit Tea – taste like she mix with tea as the tea taste is overpowering passionfruit. Feedback to the owner on the texture of taroballs and also both drinks. Hope they can improve along the way.

If you are craving for shaved ice or kakigori dessert, it is indeed one of a best dessert place in Uptown, PJ to hit on.

Hello Kitty x Creme de la Creme (5)

From the ice cream cake it self, there are 3 types of for you to choose from. Hello Kitty face itself, with the other 2 with ribbon. There are 2 different flavours. Personally like the one with the Hello Kitty face as it is more sourish and refreshing. At least 5-6 elements are in it.

Hello Kitty x Creme de la Creme (6)

Christmas is around the corner and my highly recommended in this fridge is their Apple Pie Crumble. With nice aroma of spices of cinnamon, that did not overpower the ice cream yet hint of vanilla and pie butter crumble is prominent. From hot pie to cold ice cream. Lurve it.

 One of the famous street food drink or common street dessert that we constantly enjoy is Cendol. As over the years some maintain on a classic note of the dessert yet some decided to evolve it yet Lipao Cendol at Jalan Hang Kasturi evolve the packaging for the convinience of drinkers. 

Lipao Cendol (1)

The serve their Signature Cendol with their home secret recipe of guala melaka that makes then unique in its kind. Operate by friendly couple that is passionate in explaning every of their drinks to most of the customers

Lipao Cendol (2)

You will get to spot them if you are walking from Central Market to one of our favourite Lai Foong Kopitiam.

Lipao Cendol (3)
Lipao Cendol (4)

this drink will suits well in our hot weather. Fresh Mix Fruits @ RM 12.50

Lipao Cendol (5)

Next I find it pretty interesting and a nice balance of flavour is this Dragon Fruits + Mango @ RM 12.50. A drink that is pack with fresh fruits and blended nicely.

Lipao Cendol (6)

this is their signature series serve in their modern cup instead of bowl.

  1. Lipao Signature Cendol with red bean and fresh coconut milk @ RM 12.50
  2. Mango Cendol with fresh coconut Milk @ RM 14.50
Lipao Cendol (7)

Last is thier in demand  request of Papaya Milk by the customer @ RM 10.50

Lipao Cendol (8)
Lipao Cendol (9)
Lipao Cendol (14)

If you are here, do try on thier signature Cendol series as I find the gula melaka that they use have its own unique taste itself. Not too sweet, yet can drink on the go. Smart to serve it in a cup. not your usual cendol in KL.
