Dessert's Bar @ Subang Parade

It is on one of those rare days, i find myself at one of the smaller and obscure shopping centres like Subang Parade. Way past their prime time, despite looking very decent from renovations and good maintenance.

Having not stepped into the place for many many years, you take a moment and breathe all those memories you had as a kid here.

It would be rather funny to see a grown up standing in the middle of the shopping corridor, nose up, sniffing away, so i thought the more conventional way of seating down at Dessert's Bar might be a little less obvious. Situated in one of the shopping corridors on Ground Floor, the open concept do not give any form of privacy. People walking up and down, can see what you eat, how you eat and when you eat.

That aside, the food was ok at best but at least i got to sit down and breathe in the air.


While sipping on some strawberry tea (with just a hint, but strong enough to smell and taste)

Some peanut butter and banana crepe (that was forgettable)

A Creme Brulee to finish my Tea Time. A knock on the hardened sugar top revealed a creamy texture with speckles that we hoped was vanilla beans (but for like RM7-8, we had our doubts, more likely to be burnt sugar bits). There was also a nice oomph of vanilla before polishing the whole thing up.

Address and contact details:

Lot LG-C05, Lower Ground Floor, Subang Parade,
No. 5, Jalan SS16/1 47500, Subang Jaya, Selangor DE.
Tel: +603 5637 4758
Fax: +603 5637 4702


Verdict: 3 stars out of 5 stars, a decent place to hang out, and in my case to absorb the feeling of the overused word " nostalgia"

actually i meant to say try the drinks there some yankee punch with no artificial colors and flavorings. It was refreshing and at 6+ per pop, it a bang for money.Came across it for browsing over www.usj.com.my in cari makan topic & after reading the thread title healthy with no Ajinomoto,stumbled it because of curiosity.

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

wmw: hahaha tell me abt it

j2kfm: yea yeah..it seemed so BIG then..
