We were looking for a place to have a drink whilst waiting for our movie to start, and decided that Dessert Story would be a nice change from MacDonald's.
They serve snacks, dim sum, hot and cold dessert and drinks. The prices has recently gone up as you can see, but their pumpkin, yam and carrot cakes are pretty good.
We had the pumpkin cake which came sprinkled with sesame seeds, and with chilli and sweet sauce on the side. Soft, savoury and piping hot.
I can't say the same for the siew mai which is obviously heated from frozen.
The yam paste they serve is thick and not watery, like at some other places. It comes with pieces of pumpkin, gingko nuts and a little coconut milk.
They also happen to serve shaved ice-cream which seems to be the next trend after bubble tea. I had the chendol ice with traditional sweetened red beans and green jelly, and it tasted exactly like Milo. The portion was huge but it wasn't addictive. Anyway, that's coming from someone who doesn't understand why people queue to buy KOI.
