Pretty On Plate @ Taman Maluri

'Pretty' sums up the plated desserts & various sweet treats crafted by Malaysian pastry chef Aaron Quay; begin with the brioches, injected with fillings like peanut butter, vanilla custard & chocolate, topped with ice cream & sorbets in flavours that span salted caramel, coconut & mixed berries (RM15 per plate). A playful novelty inspired by syringe-stabbed doughnuts that have become social media staples in countless cities worldwide over the past year, currently seeking traction in Kuala Lumpur.

Dessert samplers for sharing (RM35 for eight pieces) are another interesting idea here: Petite portions of Pretty On Plate's ever-evolving selection of confections - a parade of every flavour profile from chocolate to Earl Grey, lychee to hazelnuts.

 From 6pm onward, Pretty On Plate's founders Aaron, Mikaela & Ryan also offer made-to-order specialities with an extra splash of sophistication, such as banana & peanut butter mousse with caramelised bananas & yoghurt ice cream (RM25). Takeaway tidbits include Gula Melaka macarons & house-made popcorn; the cafe's own cold-pressed juices are available too.

    1. Contact.ewew: yeah, i'm not a major fan of the smudge either - they do have several other plated desserts to try, and i'm betting those might be more visually captivating! :)
