Dessert And Toast is located at the corner of the shophouse along Syed Alwi Road, perpendicular to Jalan Besar Road. It has taken over the space formerly belonging to some F&B establishment.
The space dressed in mainly monochrome is with some random pictures and accessories. Everything that put together isn’t quite coordinated. But somehow made do. That’s how I thought.
As the name of the cafe strongly summon desserts and toast. Yes, it indeed offers only these. The desserts were mainly the Hong Kong styled desserts. Almost everything on its menu echo my liking.
Dessert and Toast offer a good number of Toast. I tried the Kaya Toast ($2.80). Other flavours include Otah, Peanut Butter, Honey, Milo Condensed Milk.
The toast was crispy right till the inside of the cube. The reason was butter sip into the inside and under heat it resulted the ultra crispy texture.
Some traditional dessert such as the Red Dates and Fungus ($2.80) was found on the menu.
For takeway, I almost wanted to order the entire menu. I refrained. Otherwise, my mom will be shocked. But first of all, it might be too heavy for me to bring them all home. Lol.
I went for the evergreen dessert, my all time favourite, the Mango Pomelo, Cold ($3.80). There were quite a few cubes of mango, generous amount of sago and pomelo but the ‘soup’ itself was not filled with enough mango flavour.
As I was craving for the Taiwan like dessert, especially the Taro balls, the second dessert ordered was Winter Melon Grass Jelly, Cold ($3.80). In my opinion, this was more superior than my first choice. It wasn’t without flaw though. The Taro ball texture was a little coarse and the pearl seems a little under cooked.
We tried both the Peanut Paste and Sesame Paste (forgotten to get a photo of it). Our conclusion was it has good flavour but lacking of viscosity.
NAHMJ like the selection of dessert provided by Dessert and Toast, since all the desserts on its menu were NAHMJ fave. Improvement could be made and it would certainly be an awesome dessert cafe for the area since it opened till the wee hours. A great supper choice.
