One of my favourite instagrammer is Manuela from @passionforbaking. She shares her gorgeous recipe and a very swoon-worthy kitchen. I often think to myself, how nice if I can have a real life kitchen like this – vintage chic kitchen with pastel shades of pink kitchen aid, mint smog fridge and etc. Someone recreated that kitchen in KL, and it was done by none other than Joey from Eat Me, Bangsar.
Joey’s first offspring – Killer Gourmet Burgers is doing very well right now. However, she does not stop there. Having a strong passion in creating artisinal desserts, Joey is taking inspirations from her worldwide travels. So after a long R&D process, Eat Me opens its door next to KGB.
The Nutella Chill Pill (RM12.90) is the most expensive beverages in the menu. It consists of Nutella and pill-shaped coffee ice cubes in a glass, paired with a mini jug of warm milk.
To enjoy the drink, just pour the warm milk over and give it a good stir, the end result is one of the most “kao” (rich) mocha I have ever had.
Eat Me Iced Lavender Tea (8.90) on the other hand; was refreshing, not too sweet with light hints of lavender.
We tried a few desserts during our first visit. Sydney’s Stars (RM 16.90) is a pretty cookie sandwich topped with light cream and served with a scoop of refreshing watermelon sorbet, a deconstructed version of the Rose & Watermelon Cake from Sydney’s Black Star Pastry.
It was a very light and refreshing dessert; but it lacked the “oomph” factor.
Eat Me’s Spanish Churros (RM13.90) is one of the best that we have ever had in KL. We were on the verge of giving up finding the best churros because we have had so many really awful ones.
The churros were super warm and fresh. I like the soft crunchy texture on the outside and it was extremely warm and soft on the inside. It is highly recommended, especially when you dip those churros into Eat Me’s home made salted caramel sauce.
Eat Me’s version of Shibuya Honey Bunch (RM 16.90) reminds me of After You in Bangkok. However, it is a completely different version all together.
Joey uses two slices of thick toast, lightly score the top of the bread into 9 sections to ensure that every single corner/piece of bread is crispy and well toasted. Served with two scoops of vanilla ice cream, thick cream, honey drizzles and milk clusters; it was my Shibuya dream comes true.
Le Chempedak is one of the popular dessert items here. Unlike your conventional waffles, it was thin but compact with blobs of cempedak flesh. Served together with chempedak sauce and a scoop of vanilla ice cream; it was delicious and not too sweet.
The Belgian Musang is a durian lover’s dream comes true. The durian cake with fresh cream is topped with durian ice cream and chocolate fudge. The cake base was so soft and fluffy, and as I bit into the durian flesh and durian ice cream, the flavours exploded inside my mouth. So good!
We ended our dessert tasting session with some Japanese Ice Tarts in chocolate and passionfruit flavours. It was light and (surprisingly) refreshing for a cheese tart. We also tried the chempedak flavour on our second visit. All three flavours were really good!
Most of the desserts that we tried were good – definitely satisfied our sweet tooth. The next time a sugar craving hits, we know where to go!
