Waffuru5 Dessert House is a new dessert cafe that just opened around three months ago. As the name might hint, they boasts many desserts based around waffles. Located at Taman Paramount, PJ, I came to know about them as I had seen their storefront on my way up and down PJ. I was curious as to what they had to offer and decided to give them a try.
The interior had a very welcoming, comfortable feel with cute decor, pleasing color palettes and potted plants.
Waffuru5 prides itself with their homemade desserts. All the components for their desserts are made in-house by their experienced chef with the freshest ingredients available that day. Their matcha is sourced from Niko Neko Matcha.
The first dish I tried was the Green Tea & Mochi (RM 20). When the dish first arrived it was an eyeful. It was a celebration of colors and yummy toppings. The dessert’s base is a matcha waffle shaped into a bowl, in it there were, peanut brittle, brownies, crushed almonds, slices of strawberry, macha mochi, topped with a generous scoop of matcha ice cream, and wasabi gelato. Though this may seem quite overwhelming all the ingredients melded together perfectly giving a variety of tastes and textures. My personal favorite was the HOMEMADE macha mochi. The wasabi ice cream gave it a kick which was perfect to balance the sweetness of the dessert. The waffle shell was still crispy when I got to it. Overall it was a very satisfying experience.
The next dish I tried was the Egg Mayo with Ham (RM 11) waffle. Good savory waffles are hard to find, fortunately Waffuru5 has one of the best I’ve had. Served with cheese, creamy homemade egg mayo & ham, garnished with Katsuobushi. It was not too heavy and the waffle was light and fluffy. Simple ingredients but great flavor. A really good option for breakfast I reckon.
Next was the Caramel Banana (RM 8). This dish took the humble banana and caramel combo and elevated it. First of all the dish smelled so good, the smell of caramelized banana was just mouth-watering. The textures were just right, the crunch outside of the waffle with the soft, fluffy inside with the almost melt-in-your-mouth caramelized banana, with the crunchy crushed almonds and bursts of blueberry really made this an exciting dish.
As it was my first time there, the staff were kind enough to introduce me to their menu and explain each dish. Which I thought was very nice. In the process they informed that they had made a fresh batch of Cheese Cake and Chocolate Mud Cake which I had to try. I did not regret this decision.
The first cake I tried was the Cheese Cake (RM 10) topped with dehydrated apples and blueberries. My verdict? Amazing. The dehydrated apples were something unique, which went well together with the rich cheese cake. The dehydrated apples retained their taste and sweetness which cut the creaminess of the cheese cake and added another dimension to the flavor of the cheese cake. Little things like this really makes your experience that much better.
Next was the Chocolate Mud Cake (RM 10). This was a bit rich for me but if you are a die hard chocolate fan it’s a must try. The thing I like about this cake is that they are generous with the layers in the cake.
Waffuru5 also has artisanal tea which are imported. The one I tried was the blood orange tea (RM 15) (refillable). It has a deep vibrant color and a tangy, sweet flavor. It was aromatic and refreshing.
Overall it was a great experience. I would definitely come back to try more of their waffle bowls. However when I was there, they addressed a concern that due to the availability of ingredient on a particular day, some items may be sold out sooner.
Their menu might be updated to include new creations, be on the look out on their page for new updates.
