牛奶棒

Milk Pastry Roll or otherwise known as 牛奶棒. We didnt think much of it when we strolled past it at Jiu Fen but decided to grab one anyway. Thank god we did, because it was my favourite thing to eat at 九份! It looks so simple and uninteresting compared to the other stuff available, but it tastes so good. Like the chinese youtiao shaped version of a croissant 😍

I really miss it now! Does anyone have a recipe for this?

Woohoo, I now have a dessert spot to pig out after my yoga sessions! 

 Wild Sheep Chase is a Taiwanese dessert cafe that uses only the finest ingredients for their desserts. Think kampung eggs and real vanilla pods for their soufflés as well as three types of chocolate for their devilish molten chocolate cake… Yum! 

Ps: their earl grey milk tea is super good!

  
      

I like the simple and minimalistic design of the place. Plenty of sunlight makes WSC a good spot for Instagram worthy shots 😉 

What are some of your favourite cafes in KL?

We love going to Hanazen on Tuesdays or Fridays cause that’s when their supply of awesome Japanese ingredients arrives. If you’re up for some omakase, grab a spot at the sushi table, let the chef know how much you’re willing to spend & he’ll work his magic 😉

 Sometimes when we’re not adventurous, we usually just go for the chef’s special sushi moriwase. The spread and quality of this is value for money.

Other times, I’ve had the grilled tuna eye.. It was as huge as the size of my fist before it was grilled! Check out that pearly white eyeball 😋

  

We were once served cold white corn as an appetizer and thought what’s so special about having corn? Upon our first bite, we knew we were so wrong to undermine it.. It was sweet and juicy like you’re having a dessert. My words won’t do the corn justice, you’ll have to try it out for yourself!

 

  
And when you have the mood to splurge or an occasion to celebrate, the Yonezawa beef is also available here. Apparently only a handful of places in Kl sell them. 

  
It was also my first time trying the Kinki fish! There’s so many more things left to try in Hanazen. 

Every trip is a delight for both Y and I because even a tomato can taste unique & a grape tastes like a grape :p

  
On a constant search for the best 芋泥 (orh nee, teochew yam dessert) in town. It is quite rare to find as making it is rather tedious and considered a lost art. This place does it really well.  My family loves it! They used to have a “gerai” up in pudu plaza and they had to shift out. Now they’ve settled here decently with nice interiors and air conditioning ✌🏻️

If you know of any other place that serves good 芋泥 in KL, please leave a comment down below! Share the love ❤️
