Established in 2016, Mykori Dessert Cafe provides a modern twist to the traditional Japanese dessert house in Malaysia. The founder was so inspired by the uniqueness of Taiyaki, a fish-shaped Japanese pastry, from his trips to Japan that he pursued the idea of setting up his first shop in Puchong Jaya. Eventually, he added more menu items including the signature toasts and shaved ice desserts (kakigori) that are hugely popular today.

When you're here, make sure to try their Signature Kakigori featuring flavours like Chocolate Banofee, Passion Fruit, Popcorn, Watermelon and Matcha Latte. For a taste of the fish-shaped pastry that inspired the opening of Mykori, you can enjoy Taiyaki with fillings such as chicken slice and cheese, red bean or chocolate banana.
