Sweet sweet…

After our dinner that night, we adjourned here for dessert. Business sure looked pretty good…

At Nica

…I must say. We went for dinner at around 6.oo p.m. to avoid the crowd and the jam. I was sure there would be a lot of people and traffic jams everywhere as many would have come home for the election and also to celebrate Mother’s Day with their mums here. It was still early, just past 7, and I thought everyone would still be at their dinner table but to my surprise, there were quite a lot of people here already.

Too bad they did not have the sour sop that I enjoyed so much the previous time I was here so my missus had the one that she liked when she was here last, the banana, while my girl had the cream cheese and the strawberry (RM12.80)…

I tried the cream cheese and yes, I thought it was very nice too and so was the strawberry.

I ordered the coffee mille crepe (RM9.60)…

…but I would say I prefer some of the those that they have had for a while now – the tiramisu or the rum and raisin, for instance.

I did not know what it was but my girl said she had it in New Zealand and it was very nice and she insisted that I ordered that to try – the chai latte (RM9.90)…

If I am not wrong, it is some kind of tea and at first sip, I thought it had a somewhat unique taste, something that would need a little getting used to but from the second sip onwards, it sort of grew on me and yes, I enjoyed it very much. Ok, so now I’ve tried and I know what it is – who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks? Hehehehehe!!!

They have some new creations now like these artisan premium cones (RM12.80 each)…

…and these gelatus sticks (RM9.90)…

…but we did not order those to try.

I would say that was literally a sweet ending to a delightful day, my missus’ birthday, and we sure were glad that our girl could come back the later part of that day to join in our little simple celebration.

  1. Something sweet to end the day of celebrating a happy birthday! So it pays to try Melissa’s food and drinks recommendation, eh? ;p

    She suggested the drink and yes, from the second sip onwards, I loved it – very refreshing and great substitute for their long black or expresso which probably would have kept me awake all night. Seems that they have this at Starbucks but I’ve been to two outlets only – one in Auckland, the other at Kuching airport while waiting for my flight and I did not really look at what they had on their menu…

  2. Crepe cake! They’re delicious, but very tedious to make, hence, the expensive price.. RM150 for a whole (small) cake over here..

    Now THAT is VERY expensive!!! Here it was RM80 for quite a big one the last time I bought one, dunno now. It’s ok, a once in a while treat – not something I would be dying to have again and again.

  3. Nice! But hefty price tags though

    Isn’t that quite typical of such places…even over where you are? What amazes me greatly would be the fact that there are always a lot of people at such places, mostly if not all of them, young. Gee!!! They must be very rich to be able to afford going to such places – I would just save it for special occasions, a rare well-deserved treat.

  4. Those cones are beautiful. I’ve never seen anything like them.

    Yes, they do look very nice, don’t they? Not cheap though – I think it is just one scoop of the gelato plus all the toppings to decorate it.

  5. I hardly go for the stick as i am a careless person, not careful, the ice cream will drip into my clothes…

    Happens to me all the time, anything that I eat. Don’t care – old man, messy eater.

  6. Those artisan premium cones do look very tempting! I won’t know which one to choose πŸ˜€

    Gotta give it to them for their creativity. They do look very nice indeed, that much I would say.

  7. Lovely dessert to end up the dinner. I like the cream cheese& strawberry ice cream.

    It was gelato. If ice cream, at those prices, we’d just go to the supermarket and grab a few tubs…can eat till kingdom come!

  8. We’ve chai latte here too, but it really takes some time to be accustomed to the taste (especially when there’s sugar added into the mixture, sigh). I don’t really fancy having sugar in my coffee or tea.

    Those artisan cones are pretty pricey! I wonder if the taste is worth the price?

    Those at the ice cream outlet at Mid Valley are just as astronomically priced too – I saw the ice cream on a stick, RM4.00 at the supermarket, with all the toppings, selling for way over RM10.00. I am really surprised that people actually queued for those – dunno whether they still do that or not. In fact, I dunno if it is still open or not even.

    I dunno chai latte, first time trying and I was mighty glad that it was not sweet, very light and refreshing with the unique fragrance and taste. Nice.

  9. Wow… this is my Kind of shop I would love to visit… and visit!! Every picture looks so yummylicious here…. would love to sink my teeth into the mille crepe you ordered!

    Bet you’d love it here but for the mille crepe, I prefer some other flavours that they have at the old place.

  10. Haha, you can definitely teach an old dog new tricks! I’m an old dog too, having just turned 40 this year, but I’m hoping and looking forward to learning more tricks in the years to come, if I’m fortunate enough! πŸ˜‰ p.s. The premium artisan chocs look amazing! πŸ˜€

    Add 50% of your age to your current number of years and you will get my age, just a bit more than that! Now, THAT is old. very very old! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    Cones, you mean. They’re the gelato in a cone with all the different toppings to make it look a lot more attractive…plus 50% of the price of one scoop! They sure are very enterprising here – bet a lot of people would fall for those.

  11. Sour sop would be my choice too. They used the freeze the fruit in Venezuela and then blend it into a smoothie – my favourite flavour.

    It is so very expensive these days and so difficult to get – ever since word went round that it cures cancer. Saw something about the leaves too.
