If there’s one thing I miss about going out is spending a weekend out with my girlfriends at a nice dessert shop somewhere in Kuala Lumpur, sharing a slice of warm brownie with whipped cream on top, vanilla ice cream in the middle – just me and my girls. (sigh) Oh how I miss those days…
But, luckily for us, these memories can still be relieved with sweet treats, which can be delivered right to your doorstep even when you can’t leave home! Here’s our recommendations on dessert cafes that can bring your favourite treats in Klang Valley to you!
12 Local online grocery and essential stores with delivery within Klang Valley where you can get fresh groceries and household items
1. A moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips — Kenny Hills Bakers
We don’t mean to scare you when we say ‘a lifetime on the hips’ but their desserts are just too tasty, they are hard to resist! From their signature egg tarts to their original Kenny Hills-style peach strudel, you’d need to find the inner strength within yourself to hold your wallet (and mostly your stomach) from indulging. Because sometimes you’re not hungry, you might just be bored. 😉
If you’re looking for full meals, they also serve delicious wood-fired pizzas, some pasta and bigger dishes on the side!2. You’ll go crazy for this cheap chewie dessert — Chewie Mellow
Who’s a fan of Taiwanese dessert? If you are one of them, look out for Chewie Mellow, ‘cause that Purple Potato Soya Ice is waiting for you, just one tap away! Not only does this place have many options when it comes to their toppings (think red beans, taro balls, mango ice cream, rainbow jelly, and more) but it’s also so cheap and well-proportioned!
I’m getting dessert cravings now as I’m writing this and looking through their menu! Also, if you don’t feel ‘cool’ for their ice series, you can always go ‘hot’ for their warm Cincau with Mini Taro Ball.
3. All ‘eyes’ on you — Roji Monster
Here’s something to fill up your monstrous appetite! Roji Monster is not just your ordinary ice cream shop. Behind its cutely decorated piece, this shop makes their dessert by hand and heart.
They say the eyes are the windows to the soul and Roji Monster’s frosted eyes symbolize the blessing of a blessing, and also a prayer for peace and hope, which these little ice cream monsters shoulders heavily.
In these dire times, a little one of these is just what we need, don’t you think? Try out one of their Uji Matcha ice cream or monster muffins if you’d like!
4. Try out some of the best waffles in town! — Cafe 5
While we are staying home and wishing we could travel the world again, why not order something as close as to where we want to be? Somewhere like Belgium perhaps? Cafe No. 5 is not only a popular dessert shop, but people go crazy for their signature Belgian Liege Waffle.
Rich in flavour, but mostly rich in history, their hand-made waffles took two years to perfect, using traditional methods, making sure they are nicely crisp on the outside, while soft and hearty on the inside. Mmm so lekker (which means ‘tasty’ in Dutch)!
Also, if you think one waffle isn’t enough, they also deliver their waffles frozen, so you can pop them in the freezer and heat them up whenever you want to indulge!
5. Watermelon sugar highhh! — Brick Cottage
Happiness doesn’t stop here! Check out Brick Cottage that serves delicious ice chilled desserts to indulge in this hot Malaysian weather. If you’re a fan of watermelons, you’d love their Watermelon Lover (suitable name, isn’t it?).
But if you’re craving something more, they also have Honey Dew (Honeydew I’m Home), or Rainbow Glutinous Balls (yum!). You can try out their signature Homemade Kaya with Bun or Bread (toasted on wood charcoal) too.
In case you’re wondering, Brick Cottage is also known for their main dishes like their signature Sarawak Laksa. It’s also pork-free!
6. Nothing beats a classic Pandan — Pandan Republic
Sometimes, when it comes to desserts, I’d like to try something that isn’t too generic (not like your usual chocolate ice creams, strawberry this, or vanilla that). Although these regular desserts taste great (they really do!), how about we switch it up and go for some fresh Pandan Coconut Milk ice cream?
Pandan Republic is famous for this, so you might have heard about it. You can also check out their tasty Pandan Thousand Layer cake if you’re feeling for something a bit more fulfilling!
P.S. You may need to order your food early as they take about an hour to prepare, but trust us, it’s worth the wait!
7. There’s much to love for this matcha over here — Maccha Iki
Now we know many Malaysians are obsessed with Japanese culture, so it’s no surprise that when it comes to the food scene, matcha teas are always a hit!
Here at Maccha Iki, they combine and refine the Japanese culture and their famous matcha to bring sensational flavours to your palate. Their carefully handmade desserts are made from 100% purely imported Japanese matcha powder, bringing out the authenticity of their desserts. And now you can enjoy them right at home!
Check out their mini Matcha mochis or iki crepe rolls too!
8. Haven’t had Martabak in a while? — Tetangga Kita
In Malaysia we have Apam Balik, and in Indonesia they have Martabak. With desserts, as long as they are sweet and tasty, it doesn’t matter if they are served hot or cold. After all, they are sweet treats!
Over here at Tetangga Kita, they can really serve up some mean authentic Indonesian martabak, and if you haven’t had one in a long while, this is the perfect time to have it delivered to you! It’s nicely thick, nicely crisp on the outside, and the texture is non-sticky if you decide to heat it up on your pan at home!
9. There’s no such thing as accidents once you take a bite of their brownies – Brownies Bar by The Accidental Bakers
One of my all-time fave go-to desserts would definitely be brownies. It’s so simple, yet FULL of taste, and I just love how the texture it’s so moist, and you can eat it when it’s hot, or you can eat it when it’s cold (but not brick-cold though).
So naturally, I’d recommend this place if you’re looking for that perfect brownie for your afternoon cravings. It comes in a variety of flavours, like their best-selling Signature Dark Chocolate Brownies, Sea Salt Almond Brownies and more!
Here’s a sweet deal: If you order online here, not only will you get RM 10 off the delivery fee, but you’d also get a FREE brownie with every online purchase!
10. Imagine this: Rainbow-coloured banana fritters — The Gorpis
At the moment, you might be thinking “Wait, what did you say?” Yup, rainbow-coloured pisang goreng. Don’t worry, I too, didn’t know it existed until I came across it one day. Their taste is as groovy as they look.
This cheese-flavoured banana fritter got everyone talking. People say it’s very crispy, melt-in-your-mouth and so much more. One customer even said you’d get everything you see advertised! So you can already tell how good it’ll taste once you place an order.
Although they have limited choices online, once this lockdown is over, you can always pop on over to their shop in Kota Damansara when you can. 🙂
So there you have it folks! You can thank us later after you’ve satisfied that sweet cravings of yours from this list. 😉 Let us know which is your favourite!
