Had potatoes,

bittergourd and

brinjal as side dishes

They had 40 over types of dessert. All reasonably priced. Most of them were RM2.50 per bowl.

We tried as much as we can.

Fatboy ordered a bowl of this

and this, which, fails in taste but scores in nutrition (according to the owner). Seriously. Tastes like puke.

Jiun had this,

Vinny had this,

Soo Yee had this,

All in all, the desserts were delicious. Seriously. Good shit. (Except ‘Noursishing Dew’)
