Time to intro another JB cafe. Have been very busy lately, I have tried to keep the JB cafe list updated despite unable to write full reviews. To add on to the list, I have two more pretty joints that deserves a full post.
As usual, was out with my JB cafe hop buddies -- the cousinssssss. Honestly I am still surprised that new cafes are still budding out and every cafe has something interesting to offer. The JB cafe scene is just happeninggggg.
Waku Waku 日式烈日松饼@ Mount Austin
First, to fill up our tummies for lunch, we've decided to go for desserts instead of a usual meal. Waku Waku serves waffles which are paired with a generous scoop of ice cream and atas-premium looking toppings like meringue cookies, marshmallow walnuts, chocolate ganache and more. Honestly, taste is not the only thing that matter now, the visually appealing waffles are enough to brighten up your day. Besides customized waffles, you could also try unique desserts like the japanese-style pudding and strawberry smoothies. I would say the dessert offerings over here can make a girl go nuts. Anyway, still would like to recommend the customized waffles, where you get to choose your waffle flavor (GreenTea, Plain, Chocolate), a scoop of ice cream, with interesting flavors like earl grey and black sesame, toppings that gives you the extra crunch and sweet and finally the sauce! All these for RM18.90! What's more, if you like Waku Waku's facebook page, you'll get an additional scoop of chocolate ice cream, which is what we had for each of our waffles!
Personally I like the texture of the waffles, it's not as airy crunchy, but more cake-like. So it's kinda chewy and there's a delicious aroma. And the best part is, you don't get that greasy taste and smell from usual waffles. But the surface is still slightly crunchy and goes well with the ice cream and toppings.
Cousin Zack's waffle
Black sesame and Chocolate Ice Cream
Salted Egg Yolk Sauce
Mango and Chocolate Ice Cream
Cream Cheese Sauce
Gotta say Mango and Choco wasn't a good combo haha. They are delicious ice creams on their own but I have to accept the fact that they are just not meant for each other haha. Other than that, loving the cream cheese sauce which is more like paste actually haha. Super fragrant and yummy. The choco ganache and meringue kisses add the right amount of sweetness.
Earl Grey and Chocolate Ice Cream
seriously, I can look at this all day...
but oh well, good things might end bad :P
The disaster after digging into these pretty waffles haha
Yummy waffles aside, the cafe is sure to be a go-to place for ladies. White tables, white walls, floor length windows the minimalist interior is great for awesome photos. We were lucky enough to get the seat at the wall of plants.
had my mortar board with me haha...
gotta snap for the ocassion
Me: Sis I grad liao!!!
Cousin: You have no idea what you're heading towards.
hehe photographer of the day! Cousin Zack who's back from the states.

ok last last one

Anyways if you love desserts but don't want something too heavy, I really think the waffles here have the right balance. Go have your waffles in your own way!
