Shugatori @ Damansara Uptown

Shugatori celebrates the crowd-pleasing desserts that have surged in popularity among the Klang Valley's young cafe-goers in recent years. The menu essentially showcases multiple varieties of honey toasts, pancakes & waffles - signatures include the Yin & Yang, a two-in-one thick combo of charcoal & classic toast, blanketed with soft meringue, partnered with meringue sticks, dragon fruit balls, cookies-&-cream ice cream & dark chocolate (RM27.90), & the Red Velvet, a pancake stack layered with tangy lemon mousse, topped with hokey pokey ice cream & encircled with caramel sauce (RM25.90). The toast could benefit from better butter & cleaner, more natural flavours, & the pancakes could be fluffier & fresher, but all in all, Shugatori is a cheerful place, & its hard-working founders clearly hope patrons will leave this origami bird-loving hangout on a happy high.

  1. Yes, passion is crucial. Like cooking, just going through the motions, following strictly the recipes - a world of difference from cooking with passion!

  4. More than a week ago, I was caught in a heavy downpour and stood outside Shugatori. A nice young man came out and offered me to sit on those box seats right outside the shop. So kind of him. I had already eaten or else I would have gone inside to have a dessert for lunch!

    1. Choi Yen: in their defense though, the plated desserts can sometimes function as a proper meal, since they contain so many ingredients ;)

  6. Nowadays.. RM25+ for a dessert is like a once-in-a-while treat.. LOL !
