Durian Season At Inside Scoop - Presenting King Of All Waffles - Damansara Jaya

Durian season is here and especially the craze on the Musang King this season. We had the opportunity to taste; first hand this King Of All Waffles at Inside Scoop, Damansara Jaya branch tonight.

A special collaboration of 2 popular brand names namely Inside Scoop which is famed for its smooth creamy made from scratch ice cream and the Durian King TTDI for the supply of fragrant and top quality Durian; to create a unique one of its kind King Of All Waffles for us to savour in.

The Musang King Durian is paired with the Valrhona Chocolate ice-cream for a perfect combination as its ingredient does not overpower each of its' character. The Valrhona Chocolate flavour was chosen for its strong flavour as it exudes out a special taste when eaten with the aromatic and naturally sweet flavour of the creamy Musang King.

Served with a set of crispy Butter Milk Waffles; the light texture of the waffles was just right to absorb the ice cream which intertwined with the lustrous Yellow Durian flesh making each scoop a delight which has its' after taste still lingering; hours after that.

If you yearn for this special one of the kind waffles dessert, you better hurry to Inside Scoop as this King Of All Waffles is only available at selected Inside Scoop outlet and only available for 3 days starting from 22nd June 2016.

However, if you miss King Of All Waffles, don't despair as Inside Scoop has also its' very own Durian Ice Cream which we had a chance to taste it too. We find the taste and the creaminess of this flavour; up to mark as its Durian based was the D24 species which has a strong character by itself.

Petaling Jaya Food | Brulee Brasserie Cafe - Creme Brulee - Coffee - Beer - Pizza

There are not many cafe and restaurant that serves delicious yet affordable Creme Brulee.
+BestRestaurant ToEat recently got the opportunity to try out the Creme Brulee and its other dishes at Brulee Brasserie Cafe located at B1-2 Casa Tropicana, Jalan Persiaran Tropicana, Tropicana Golf and Country Resort, 47410 Petaling Jaya, Selangor.

Brulee Brasserie Cafe is a neighborhood cafe with its' cozy, carefree and simplistic decor which are adorned with charming little set pieces around the cafe.

Patrons placed their orders from the counter;

while the menu is very straight forward which has 2 boards: one which is the drinks menu and the others the pizza menu; which has 12 different flavours served with a specially sourced Lebanese bread as the base.

Our review started with a lighter flavour of the pizza which is the Super Mario Pizza (RM14.00). The thin crust is topped with olives and 3 types of mushrooms; which were the Shiitake Mushroom, Porto Bello Mushroom and the Eryngnii (King) Mushroom. When the pizza arrives at our tables, we could smelt the strong aroma of these mushroom. Topped with the mozzarella cheese, the pizza was superb with the oven baked crisp thin crust.

Our next pizza is the Pesto Caviar Pizza (RM15.00). Frankly speaking, we have not eaten a caviar pizza at all before this review; but this turn out to be quite a taste by itself. Combined with the pesto sauce and the cheese; it was a real delight to taste the orange and black caviar on a pizza.

Our third pizza is special marriage of Petai Sambal flavour and the Nasi Lemak flavour (RM14.00). We were told that the Nasi Lemak was the cafe top seller; but as an ardent fan of nasi lemak, we felt that an additional spoonful of spicy sambal sauce with fried crispy anchovies would have made this pizza a better match to our demanding taste-bud for a Nasi Lemak flavoured dish.

The last and final pizza for the night is the Moroccan Beef (RM11.00). For me as a meat eater; this Pizza has to be the best for me. We really like the taste of the beef which takes a long process to prepare and serve. According to the Chef, it takes almost 2 days to prepare and cooked it with an array of spices and the special Moroccan sauce. It has a slightly spicy taste and the meat was not gamy. Perfectly matched with the crust too.

After our pizza, it is time for the Star of the Cafe; which is the Creme Brulee; If you are coming here for the first time; you might not know that the cafe serves Creme Brulee as it is not written on the menu or anywhere in the cafe. For die-hard Creme Brulee fans to this cafe; they will know that it is the only desserts serves here. But; what is so special about the Creme Brulee at Brulee Brasserie Cafe is that there are 12 rotating flavours i,e. the original Vanilla, Mango, Lemon, Green Tea, Thai Red Tea, Lavendar, Coffee, Cinnamon, Passion Fruit, Chocolate, Salted Caramel and Cardamon. Each and everyday the Creme Brulee are made fresh and 3 flavours will be served. Do check out the flavours of the day when you order yours.

We find the texture to be very soft and the sweetness level was just the right portion. For me; we like the caramel to be of the thin type which you can tell the staff when you place the order with them. Secondly we can taste the milky creamy based of the Brulee in every spoonful; which was a real delight and at RM7.00 per cup; you can really indulge in this dessert at this cafe.

At Brulee Brasserie Cafe; it does offer specialty latte and imported crafted beers specially for those beer connoisseur to enjoy a drink or two with their friends after work or on weekends. Do share your comments after your visit to the cafe.

Through several innovations, he found ways to enhance the flavours and sweetness of green tea, resulting in high-quality Gyokuro tea leaves, which is a breed of shaded green tea from Japan. He has also designed a method of transporting tea leaves so that they could maintain their freshness after harvesting.

Now, Malaysian can savour this finest quality Japanese Green Tea not only in the many innovative hot and cold drink but also desserts offering at Tsujiri. Currently, Tsujiri has a total of 14 outlets worldwide; which includes in Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, China, Canada and now in Malaysia.
