Miru, The Ais & Wesley's Wild Honey @ Damansara Uptown

Damansara Uptown is drawing diverse new dessert parlours - the one with the most buzz is Miru, a friendly stop that serves satisfyingly thick Shibuya-style honey toasts, with warm, lightly crisp exteriors that yield to a fresh-tasting, buttery fluffiness, in varieties like shredded cheddar cheese with vanilla ice cream (RM16), pandan kaya with coconut flakes & coconut ice cream (RM16), hazelnut sauce with Ferrero Rocher & vanilla ice cream, matcha sauce with adzuki beans & green tea ice cream, & peanut butter with vanilla ice cream. Undeniably guilty indulgences, but the calories feel entirely enjoyable.

Offering cold comfort amid the Klang Valley's current heatwave, The Ais might melt some hearts with its assortment of ice cream & sorbets in fun flavours like Cinnamon Plum, Horlicks Kit Kat, Rum & Raisin, Baileys, Gula Melaka, Coffee Nuts, Lemon Poppyseed & Dragon Fruit, available starting from RM7.90 per scoop to RM18 for a triple. You can also have a plate of mini pancakes with a scoop of ice cream for RM17.90. The flavours are mild & mellow, which should placate customers who consider most commercially manufactured desserts too saccharine. But others might prefer their ice cream richer & denser.

Wesley's Wild Honey is maintaining a low profile, but it's probably still worth a visit for French toasts (RM10.80) & waffles (RM15.80) prepared to order & partnered with shots of Tualang wild rainforest honey, which boasts a fruity-flowery sweetness that's brightly well-rounded but far from cloying. If you're a fan of the honey, rejoice: The locally founded Wesley's also promises everything from ice jelly with wild honey to Tongkat Ali or Bentong Ginger honey tea. Honey, I'm good, indeed.

    1. Contact.ewew: i like everything you mentioned too :) the honey here has a nice flavour and consistency of texture ... it doesn't feel artificial, and its sweetness is enjoyable ... not cloying, can definitely eat a lot of it, even on its own :)

  9. Went to Miru last weekend, but they were out of the toast and froyo shakes. Not sure if I want to order the toast cos I'm a small eater...

    So many ice cream parlours...! Can't help but notice that The Ais is behind Softsrve hahaha....!

    1. SC: i wonder how many toasts they can make a day ... but yeah, i can foresee them getting busier and busier, especially on weekends and at night. the toast is a nice-sized portion though - and it's quite tasty, so i think you should be able to finish at least half of it if you go on an empty tummy :)
      more glaringly, The Ais is right next to Sangkaya! :)
