A brand new wave of Bubble milk tea is hitting into Klang valley for year 2019. With a new term I learn known as the Boba Tea trend. The first wave was about 10 years ago, where Chatime make a big hit (now known as Tealive our own homegrown Bubble tea brand). Most of these outlet have their own signature and own style. I called it a new innovation of flavour especially brown sugar milk base. Well, here are the current hype of 3 New Taiwan Famous Bubble Milk Tea in KL 2019. (it was suppose to be 5 as 2 more Taiwan bubble milk tea is opening in Kepong) Or currently consider as the Top 3 New bubble milk tea brand that every one is talking about.

I believe the no.1 new brand in many people’s heart is:

No.1 The Alley 鹿角巷

This is the first brand that landed in KL for our new boba trend. When they landed, all Milktea lovers just went besserk. You see heaps of people crazily lining up their SS15 outlet and since that they have expended quite fast around Klang Valley and slowly to other states.

I like both their Royal No.9 Milk Tea @ RM 9.80 and their Brown Sugar Deerioca Milk Tea @ RM 13.80 (if I remember correctly). Their pearl is really good. Chewy and soft. Quite different kind of texture that I have tried.

I have tried their SS15, SS2 and Kepong outlet. Skip their SS2 outlet is by far the worst, flat and tasteless. Kepong and SS15 quite consistent.

The Alley 鹿角巷
47, Jalan Rimbunan Raya 1,
Laman Rimbunan, 52100 Kuala Lumpur

No.2. TigerSugar MY 马来西亚老虎堂

Second brand that landed in ourshore not too long after The Alley is Tigar Sugar. Tigar Sugar is making a huge wave in Taiwan itself and Hong Kong.

I have yet to try this out as the queue in Sunway Pyramid is also 30-45 mins. Shall skip till they have more outlets. Apparently, my friends said it is quite disappointing. Only to try if there is less queue.

Their latest outlet is in Pavilion, located at Pavilion Elite. Same row as TeaLive

Sunway Pyramid
LG1, Jalan PJS 11/15,
Bandar Sunway, 47500 Petaling Jaya, Selangor
(believe it is infront of Auntie Anne – Old wing)

No.3 Xing Fu Tang Malaysia 馬來西亞幸福堂

Fresh from Taiwan as they just open its door about 3 weeks ago in SS 15 as their first outlet in Malaysia and making a huge bee line. Rest assure that the queue will take you about 30 mins – 45 mins to get a cup of your boba. Seen my friend checking out the outlet and it seems they do have little gimmick. Some of my friend mention to me that their franchise cost about RM 300k-500k per outlet. According to my friend that had join on the queue, she said that it is nothing special and too sweet. What will be your verdict?

3 New Taiwan Famous Bubble Milk Tea in KL 2019 that I have known. If you do encounter more, do share with me as I will make this list longer. Enjoy your Boba then~

September is definately one a very rare month that we get to enjoy lots of holidays and it is indeed Once in a Blue Moon. Matching perfectly with the theme that had been set by Grand Dorsett Subang for upcoming Mid Autumm festival with their settings of mooncake Once in a Blue Moon.

Mooncake these days are getting more variety of flavour, however there are some classic that is still not to be missed. This year Master Chef Alex Chan from The Emperor Chinese Restaurant, Dorsett Grand Subang, handcrafts the classic mooncake varieties with a twist. The hotel’s signature mooncake for this year is the Crystal Skin Pandan Lotus Paste with Single Yolk which embodies the Dorsett identity with its snow skin in blue.

Once in a Blue Moon (1)

Blue? Yup, it matches back to their theme Once in a Blue Moon as we were being showcase by the chef on the making of the blue snow skin.

The mooncake is free from artificial colouring as it is derived from ‘Bunga Telang’ extracts. Bunga Telang; also known as Blue Pea Flower, carries antioxidants which can lower blood pressure as well as enhancing memory and brain power. If this filling is not your prefered choice then you can opt for red bean paste filling @ RM28.00/pcs.

The Coconut Pandan Paste combines two familiar local flavours with the aroma of Pandan leaves and the sweetness of coconut. Pandan leaf extracts have been thought to reduce fever, relieve indigestion and flatulence while coconut is known for protecting against heart diseases by increasing good cholesterol.


Once in a Blue Moon (13)

Six Coarse Grains Paste 六谷粗粮月饼 @ RM28/pcs

The Six Coarse Grains Paste is rich in Omega 3 as it contains walnut, melon seeds, pumpkin seeds, rolled oats, black sesame and sunflower kernel.

Was heading to Subang to enjoy my favourite Burger and reached right in front of their outlet only realise that they closed on Monday. Walk around quite a while and had decided to eat Twins Dakgalbi which is one of my favourite home cook method till I stumble this huge awesome Korean decor which is a new outlet, OUTDark, SS15.

OutDark (2)

Then we make a U turn and decided to try this place out. Apparently, OUTDARK is a famous Korean brand at Busan that now spreading its wings around ASIA pacific and they have landed at SS15 as their first outlet in Malaysia.

OutDark (3)

In the outlet it is pretty dim, and definately love the ambiance as it is so KOREAN! Love locks all locking in their some of their panels

OutDark (7)

This is one of their signature dish – Cheese Kingdom @ RM 79 – with their special sauce base, generous amount of cheese, fried chicken , toppoki, kimchi side and mini rice.

OutDark (8)

OutDark (10)

I can only say for this concept, they are currently one of the best that I have come across in KL. Definately top in my list at the moment as I love the special sweet spicy sauce, yet chicken fried to perfection along with toppoki is perfect. chewy yet not too hard to my liking.

Will definitely come back again to try out their other item.

Love the ambiance of the cafe where I believe instagramers will go crazy in this place with so many corners, floors and walls for you to capture your best style. For OOTD you can do it at their common area with a huge wooden wall.

Hopp Cafe (6)

Hopp Cafe (7)

They are offering a great combination with chef learn some receipi from Spanish and Italian family when he was traveling in Europe. Find that their price is quite cheap for such ambiance that they are offering.

Hopp Cafe (8)

Bunga Kantan Mojito is one of my highly recommended drink where it is totally a thirst quencher. So refreshing that I ended up two glass of it. Well balance of taste with a hint of bunga kantan at the end that make it a great twist.

Hopp Cafe (9)

Nearly zero alcohol Sangria where they import halal wine from Middle East to make up this drink. Sour enough and with a little hint of punch is great enough to make it pretty stand out. Halal wine for both Red & White is available for you to make your order too.

Blackened Seabass Paella @ RM 16.90 – cajun spice, marinated sea-bass fillet, saffron, lemon garlic aoili, cafe spice, sweet peas, coriander, garlic oil & aroz rice. Quite generous with seabass as it is quite a big piece and it is fresh.

I discover Whup Whup at Ss13 when they first started to run their business by converting industrial yarn factory to industrial like contemporary cafe.. If I remember correctly, they were about 2 weeks old at that time and there are few recommended items from some online influencer on their menu, therefore we decided to swing by.

Upon placing order, was quite disappointing where came here for their scallops as they mention they were out of stock, and also another item, Duck 3 ways that we wanted to order was not available too.

WHup Whup (13)

WHup Whup (14)

So I ordered their The Original NO Cream Carbonara @ RM 20 – covered with cheese, duck bacon for meatballs & sprinkling of leaves.

WHup Whup (15)

Since the order weren’t available so another dish we turn to Lil Miss Nibbles @ RM 25. Salmon fillet, scramble egg, sauteed erynggi mushrooms, pan seared tomatos and toasted curry bread. Upon serving of this dish, it was quite a turn off where the presentation is this plan. Assemble truely like when you are at home while you are paying RM 25 for this where we at least expect something slightly more than this. .

WHup Whup (16)

Meals on that day were rather disappointing as I did not elaborate further on it and left to hunt for other food after that.

Hopefully they have improve along the way.
