[Updated 6 July 2021] We always debate whether or not desserts are worth the calories, but some desserts really are just too good to pass 😍 Just like how the world continues to develop and technology gets more advanced with each passing day, desserts also get sweeter and even more innovative! If you’re always on the search for special desserts that aren’t just delicious but also a treat for the eyes, these places are just the place for you!

1. Naj & Belle

Just a 3-minute walk from SS15 LRT station, accessibility is definitely on Naj & Belle's side. Situated on the ground floor of SS15 Courtyard, this cafe is better known for its signature Watermelon Cake that is layered with fresh watermelon, cream, and strawberries. It's a refreshing twist to the usual fruit cakes and one bite is all it takes for you to fall in love with unique creation. Halal status: Muslim-owned Opening hours: Open daily; 10AM-10PM Address: Ground floor, SS15 Courtyard, SS 15, 47500 Subang Jaya, Selangor Contact: +603 5612 7078 Facebook | Instagram

 2. Mykori Dessert Cafe

 With over 80 outlets across Malaysia, make your way to Mykori Dessert Cafe where yummy treats await! Have a go at their croissant taiyaki, which comes with different sweet and savoury fillings like red bean as well as chicken slice and cheese. Then try their famous Japanese shaved ice dessert named Kakigori. We recommend trying the Mount Fuji Kakigori where the yogurt shaved ice is topped with fresh strawberry, mango and almond. Halal status: Halal-certified Outlet details: Click here for a list of outlets and opening hours Website | Facebook | Instagram

3. Sangkaya

It's not everyday you get to savour coconut ice cream served in an actual coconut husk. But at Sangkaya, you can! Inspired by the Bangkok Chatuchak-style coconut ice cream, this is the perfect place for anyone who’s a true lover of anything coconut flavoured. Creamy, rich and delightfully fresh, don't forget to try their other flavours as well such as chocolate, gula melaka, kaya, matcha, mango, teh tarik and durian.

4. Sepiring

Before the bingsu fever hit Malaysia, ABC (ais batu campur or sometimes referred to as ais kacang ) reigned as the locals’ go-to dessert to beat the hot weather. However, that doesn’t mean ABC has become less popular or special ever since. What used to be a simple shaved ice dessert with red beans (hence the name ais kacang), has now taken on more ingredients to enhance the taste. Sepiring serves good ol’ ABC with peanuts, beans, jelly, corns, raisins and palm sugar. Sometimes, simplicity is best. Besides that, they also have Durian Pancake, one of Sepiring’s signature desserts! A generous dollop of fresh, pure durian is used for the filling along with whipped cream which is wrapped with a super thin crepe.

5. Cake Jalan Tiung

Cake Jalan Tiung has a reputation for their pretty and yummy cakes, but did you know they also have other unique treats? Creampuffsaurus, crisp craquelin shell cream puff with smooth vanilla bean filling, is such a popular item especially among the regulars that they always run out quickly. If that doesn’t sound that special enough to you, they also have Beyoncepuff (chocolate pudding filling) and also Midorisaurus (matcha filling)!  If you’re lucky enough to visit when Taufeefah is available in their chiller, be sure to have a taste of this dessert! It’s a reimagined tau foo fa made from silky smooth taufu with biscuit crumb base, topped with pomegranates and drizzled with sweet gula melaka.
