Chocolate Devil Bingsu (RM28.80)
If you are a chocolate or milo lover, this is something you will not want to miss. The bingsu has a rough crushed ice texture with chocolate syrup. Comes together inside the big cup are some crushed oreos, coco crunch, read bean paste, slices of chocolate cake top with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream. Chocolate Devil Bingsu is actually one of their 2014 special menu. It only comes in double portion and slightly on the high side for a cup of shaved iced for 3-4 people. In their original menu, their bingsu comes in other flavours like pat, coffee, cookies and cream, strawberry (coming soon) and their highly recommended green tea flavour. (Single – RM12.80/ Double – RM22.80). A flyer is handed out to each customer to educate us in eating bingsu the right way.
Coco Nuts Waffle (RM14.00)
Cashewnuts, Almond flakes, Walnuts, Pecans, Chocolate Chip topped with chocolate drizzle with a freshly made waffle! What can go wrong with such combination! The waffle is crunchy on the outside and nicely made but it has a lack of fluffiness of the flour. Another drawback, is the tiny portion and rather expensive price which is not value for money.
