In KL most of us fancy certain brand of Taiwanese Dessert as for Penang people, there are certain brand that capture their attention too. Blackball in Penang seems to be doing pretty well that have won many hearts of dessert people. I realiase it works for them in Penang too as this brand have quite a no.of branches.

Blackball (1)

First time testing out this brand, which it seems is another famous brand from Taiwan that certainly have no doubt in the taste.

Blackball (2)

While waiting for movies, then chill here for a while. Interior are pretty similiar to the others.

Blackball (3)

Try one of their new signature with corn base ice, with taro balls, grass jelly, corn, jelly and ice cream. First few bites of corn ice taste alright as the more we take, we could not finish it as if not mistaken pineapple was added in as there are sourish end. Taro balls wasnt done that well, as the texture is soft and non chewy. Not bad overall.

Blackball (4)

Another Blackball signature is serve with Taro Ball, Taro Q, Pearl, grass jelly and red beans served with some fresh milk (if serve cold). This is not bad as pretty strong taste of grass jelly is there, red bean added the bite texture, and I find it too much pearl for me. Next time should request less pearls. 😀

Blackball (5)

Try out their classic Pearl Milk Tea and 25% is too pale for us as other brand 25% is just perfect. For Blackball 50% sugar in their drinks is just perfect. I love their Winter Melon Tea. Strong in taste and not that sweet. Next time I know where to ta pau my drinks before movie.

Right after the movie, we walk back to Pavilion as my car park there because that I do not want to be jam at Convention Center due to PC Fair on that day.

Felt that its still a bit early and before heading off, got to know that my favorite desert shop now had open at Pavilion and went to try it out.

Located directly infront of Padini, here stood a nice stall which caught by my surprise that they operate it here as I always thought that it would be around Forever 21 area or Food Republic.

A nicely build up desert stall which is very different compare to their branch at SS15.

Menu is not the same as they do not have light snacks here, due to their location at Pavilion that are not allow to cook.

Snowflakes under ‘Grass Jelly Version’ that have pearls, red bean, peanut and I add taro balls.

Then pour upon the given milk base to add in extra flavour. Just love how they did their blended smooth ice that just melt in my tongue.


Then my friend order the ‘Taufufa Series’ with their very own signature Taro Balls and this is serve warm. Love the taste of it which had a clear soup base which is very refreshing as my friend was sick that day which is good. The taro balls never dissapoint us as its still the same as the main branch, chewy like buble gum.
They event have new flavour- coconut base ice series. Taste good on first few mouth, then I start to feel geli after half way. Too much cooconut for me yet my friend just love it.
Never got bored of the desert from this shop and had a brief chat with the friendly owner that they are planing to open more branches soon. So look out~

Deserts Lovers, which brand do you prefer since we have Taiwan fever deserts booming in our country at the moment, from drinks (bubble tea) to ice desert series with the brand like Chatime, Gong Cha, Snowflakes and now UFO which in the same area had another brand of Taiwanese desert that I did not even bother to write on.

[ No longer in Operation ]

UFO (1)I

I have heard good feedback from my friend regarding on UFO another Taiwanese Deserts as they rate this second best after Snowflakes (click here). YES. . . UFO is not actually the alien UFO is just a taiwanese desert shop with the catchy name. Since its nearby my work area, I gather my colleague to have dinner then come by for deserts after that.

UFO (2)

UFO Taiwanese desert is located in the heart of SS2 with its super big billboard that is hard to miss, which is the same row of Police Station.

UFO (3)

Of course we are here to try on their ice series .. .

UFO (4)

I guess this is how the name par on it, with UFO calling number. It will vibrate when your order is ready.

UFO (5)

always wanted to start order with Soya series but it was out of stock so go for their classic range, Grass Jelly series. . . .

UFO (6)

Grass Jelly with 3 toppings (mini taro balls, red bean, pearl)

UFO (7)

UFO (8)

Ai Yu Jelly with glutinous balls

UFO (9)

Matcha Special @ RM 6

Overall in this outlet, Grass Jelly certainly have its taste which is pretty strong and did not dissapoint us at all and the best series I would recommend is their Matcha or Green Tea Ice Series that have strong taste of green tea and pair very well with other ingredient and all of us agree that its one of the best to look for in this shop.

Price starting from RM4.50 (1topping) to RM6.00 (3toppings) 

If you wanted to order their bubble tea, just save your money and order the ice series. Pretty disappointing.

I guess by now most of you out there already have your favourite taiwanese drink, where some of my friends love ChaTime, Gong Cha, and a few other brands and I am sure that we are all spoilt with choices with the latest addition of another Taiwanaese brand Desert which had just landed to Malaysia which is Zen Q Desert also origins from Taiwan and this is their first outlet in Sunway Pyramid.

[Close down]

zenQ (1)

I would rate this shop more like a Chatime and Snowflakes cross over to come out this if you are saying on our local market that filled with Taiwanese desert brand.

zenQ (2)

More on green colour on ceiling and wall also on their bar counter.

zenQ (3)

They do not have long list of menu but a menu which is simple enough for us to make our choices.

zenQ (4)

After you place the order, the people from the bar counter will start to prepare accordingly.

zenQ (5)

zenQ (6)

zenQ (7)

Our first try order for the night is : ZenQ Signature

zenQ (8)

ZenQ Signature that comes with taro, grass jelly, pearl crystal jelly and a few more

zenQ (9)

The ice base is covered with grass jelly flavour, taro balls is quite chewy and like the crystal noodle as overall i prefer snowflakes brand over this.

zenQ (10)

This is something which I do not really enjoy is this Taro Sago @ RM 6.90 where the base is filled with sago then taro base soup is pour ontop. For the first few sips it taste awefully good, as the time proceed, I find it more and more ‘jelak’ as we only manage to eat halfway true. I do not know how to enjoy this.

zenQ (11)

One thing I am really impress of this brand is their drinks series, which we bought ‘Milk Tea’ which really can be on par with Chatime that the taste is quite strong in taste, not too milky n sweat and ‘Aiyu Baby Pearl Winter Melon Tea’ is the best Winter Melon Series so far that easily beats all other outlets. [email protected] RM 5.90  (in my opinion haaaa. . .) – recommended

Yay, now I do have another brand to choose from, and you are seriously pampered with many choices.

ZenQ Desert,

level 4, next to Burger King.

During festive seasons like for the past few days, many local tourist will flock to Penang shore as Penang is famous for hawker/street food. It can attract tourist as far as Singaporean to drive all the way to satisfy their crave on food and some of the Best of Penang Street Food is still top in the list of many people.

NED_6480_resize

For example a little stall that smack at the junction of Lebuh Keng Wee and Penang Road that many people surely wont miss this little stall that had been operating more 10 years and till date it had attracted many people from far

NED_6485_resize

willing to queue up under the hot sun just for this small bowl of:

NED_6486_resize

NED_6488_resize

Penang Road Famous Teo Chew Cendul and Ice Kacang @ RM1.90

NED_6489_resize

It was used to be an old uncle that scoop and prepare this and I believe now had been taken over by his son.

NED_6491_resize

This is what is called Penang famous Cendul, its filled with shaved ice, green grass jelly, red bean and coconut milk ontop, lastly just topped with some gula melaka. Undoubtly, this little bowl sure will satisfy your crave and cools you down under this hot weather.

Like some of my KL friends did, they are satisfied and enjoying every sip of it.

Next destination is this place where no doubt that recently Penang Laksa had been in the list of world top 10 food that must eat which I am surely proud off and many of my friends that come Penang the first thing they mention is they want to eat Asam Laksa.

NED_6507_resize

I was recently introduce to this stall by my friend that this is another new joint that I found that served good laksa as I find that the one at Ayer Itam Market is very commercialise and I do not really like the taste of it. I find that this taste much better.

This few hawker stalls is located at the round about of Ayer Itam Junction and now it had attracted many other local tourist as when I was there, alot people speak cantonese in the area.

NED_6508_resize

NED_6509_resize

This is one fine bowl of laksa that comes with a lot of mixture of vegetable such as finely sliced vegetables including onions, cucumber, red chillis, pineapple, lettuce, mint and pink bunga kantan then shower a few rounds with sour and and a bit spicy soup base, also a spoonfull of ‘Heh Koh’ (prawn paste). RM3.50

laksa

The noodle is silky smooth and slurp it all the way into my mouth, texture of it a bit chewy that comes to my liking. Soup base is one of my prefered choice as it cook along with fish meat that had been smash and every sip I can bite some of the fish meat. It is sour and spicy enough that can satisfy my crave.

NED_6509.0_resize

Next stall that is quite famous among there is this Duck Meat Koey Teow Soup that the soup is very aromatic with its well cook soup base with duck bone, pork bone and a few other ingredients that make it sweet, served along with duck meat and some pork lard to make it superb in taste. RM 3.50

NED_6510_resize

Penang Rojak is also another dish that you must have which is a mixture of fruits and mix with prawn paste. This is not the best stall and find that the prawn paste is quite salty and its expensive as for this small portion its RM4.

As I always hunt for desert to eat and my friend been telling me this place for quite sometime and finally, manage to make some time out of it to try out. Located in the heart of SS15 filled with students, most business would be good and this stall is located on level 1 of the shop lot which I believe on weekdays, the crowd is a lot but this round I went on weekend, and its full house too.

Taiwan desert is always in my mind just do not know why. Maybe is because the input I had in my mind was Taiwan Street food. hrmm…


The ingrediants that are made of for their desert.


A simple nice and cosy area which they have indoor and outdoor for smokers too.

In this shop is famous for its signature item which is you pick and choose. There are 3 steps for you to do that with the price of RM4.90 each.

1) Choose your favorite (consist of 3 flavour)
2) Choose your topping (5 types to choose from)

Or if you are lazy, you can directly choose their bestseller desert. RM5.50

After ordering and paying, you will be given this Beeping UFO, which looks like landmine. Once your desert is ready, it will beep.
This is my order with the base of ‘Grass Jelly and Taro Balls’ which is the bestseller. RM4.90

Then you will be given condense milk to be pour upon. I love this desert very much, tasty as it look, soft grass jelly and very flavorful. A perfect desert to be hunt for.

My friend she order, the ‘Signature Desert’ which the most people ordering and serve with grass jelly as the base, peanut and red bean. Both also taste about the same but for a starter this would be a good choice to start off with. A great combination flavor when eat together. RM5.50

Certainly I am coming back to this shop to try out their other desert like soya bean with yau char koay which is one of the famous item there too. Definitely recommending to desert lover.

Would be advisable to share if you come after your dinner, its quite a big portion. Price wise of course is a bargain for the size you are getting as I have underestimate it and I was very full after finish the whole bowl.
