Sweet dessert…

After our scrumptious Vietnamese dinner on our first night in Kuching, we adjourned to this dessert place

Cocopuri Kuching

…a few doors away to the left. It’s not all that big, a pleasant place to hang out and I’ve seen alluring photographs of what they serve on their Facebook page so of course, I would not want to miss the chance to drop by and give it a try.

I wasted no time in ordering one of my favourite sweet desserts, the pulut hitam (black glutinous rice)…

…but it was not black. The very handsome and amicable boss said that the supplier sent them this red version instead of the usual black one but he would want to go back to the latter soonest. I did buy a pack of this red variety when I was in Miri that day and I did not mind it one bit as the taste was more or less the same, just like humans, don’t you think? Our colours may be different but basically, we are all the same.

Another difference from the one I had here was the use of their own-made coconut ice cream with a bit of gula Melaka (palm sugar syrup) on top instead of coconut cream – maybe it was not as strong on the richness and fragrance of santan (coconut milk) cream but it was all right. The addition of those lenggeng kua (dried longans) sure brought the taste to a whole new level and yes, I would say that I did enjoy it very much.

I also had their red rubies, topped with the same coconut ice cream…

…instead of santan and yes, it was good – a whole lot nicer than the disastrous one that I had at that Thai franchise place in Miri.

My cousin ordered all kinds of ice cream…

…different flavours…

…probably most of what they had, so many that I jolly well can’t remember all of them. I think one of the brown ones was coffee, a tad too strong and bitter for me and the green ones were matcha (green tea) and kedondong (ambarella) with asamboi (sour plum) added which made it all the more sour, thank you very much. The yam waffles stuck by the side must be good as before I would give it a try, they were all gone!

Incidentally, according to them, they make all the ice cream served here themselves with a coconut milk base and only natural ingredients are used, no artificial colouring, no preservatives whatsoever.

This one was new, their mango…

…which was a bit too sourish for me as well. They couldn’t wait and had already started eating before I could snap a photograph of it. Duh!!!

They had more ice cream served on coconut waffles…

…but I felt I had had enough of ice cream plus I was so very full from dinner so I did not give it a try.

One of my cousins ordered this glass of coffee, dunno if it was Irish or what, but with coconut ice cream on top…

…and I did try a bit, just a bit for fear that I would not be able to sleep when I got back to the hotel that night and yes, I thought it was o.k.

Thank you so much to my cousins for the very sweet treat. We sat there, chatting and laughing away till late and all too soon, it was time for them to send us back to the hotel to hit the sack. It had been a long day – we just flew in from Sibu before noon that very morning!

COCOPURI (1.515662, 110.352832) is located on the ground floor of Sub Lot 4, Block A, Emporium Kuching, Jalan Tun Jugah.
