Dip N Dip @ Telawi

Chocoholics now have a cafe in Bangsar to call their own: Dip N Dip delivers cocoa decadence that might leave dessert lovers swooning. 

Chocolate fountains form the centerpiece of Kuala Lumpur's first Dip N Dip, a franchise that started in Damascus in 2009 before spreading to Amman and Kuwait City. Further branches are expected to open in Hong Kong, Macau and Taipei this year.

Belgian chocolate is enlisted to create treats like crepes covered with a triple threat of milk, dark and white chocolate (RM16). Sumptuously warm and creamy.

Choc 'pizza': a brownie-cheesecake base topped with bananas, kiwi fruit and dark choc (RM20). The menu is wide: waffles to fondants, muffins to mousse, profiteroles and eclairs to ice cream, as well as 'dip sticks' of fruits and marshmallows for fondue fans.

Pancake mini-tower. Customers who require savory food will be out of luck here; no sandwiches, no salads, no soups, no pasta and meat.

Ice-blended 'Freezy,' filled with tiny bits of Belgian chocolate.

Hot white chocolate, rich enough for two to share.

Dip N Dip,
Jalan Telawi 3, Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur.

    1. Pureglutton: heh, it'd be nice to have a stronger chocolate-appreciating culture in KL :D ya, i'm torn over whether chocolate is healthy or not, since the dark ones have lots of antioxidants, right. but everything in moderation, i guess! :D

  15. Poor service, very noisy and the price is rather steep for desserts/light snacks. I almost screamed when I was served the half waffle. Perhaps I would feel better if they are more specific in the menu that I am going to get a HALF waffle only :D Hot cocoa is not bad but that's not the best I have tasted in KL.

    I wouldn't return to Dip N Dip unless Belgian chocolate is seriously out of stock in KL :D

  17. i went to the e@curve outlet today with a bunch of friends at around 10pm. We asked the manager/owner (i'm not sure) whether they will still able to serve us. the manager said yes so we sat down and ordered.

    We realised that the waiter that took our order could not really speak english and we had trouble communicating to him. He on the other hand seemed impatient and raised his voice for a few times while snatching the menu from my hand. I also realised that he dressed poorly (as in unhygenically) with stains all over his uniform.

    as we sat down and little did we realised its already 11pm. we got the bill and divided our bill and sat down and chat a while. at 11:20, the staff in his attempt to chase us away increased the music level until its unbearable for us to continue sitting there.

    I confronted the staff (he's a middle eastern guy with curly hair) and asked him did he do that on purpose. He said yes. and i asked him why, he said because we are closing.

    We would definitely appreciate it if the staff would politely ask us to leave, but what he did was rude and unacceptable. I told him that his action was rude and he said its okay.

    This is a place definitely not interested in serving you properly and just aiming to chase you out. BAD SERVICE!
