Please Make Room For These 13 Best Dessert Places In KL & PJ

best dessert kl pj

There’s always room for dessert—we wholeheartedly concur because why eat when dessert isn’t happening, especially after a ravaging feast? It feels incomplete and unsatisfactory. Like a TV series that gets dropped out of the blue, a movie ending on a cliffhanger without a planned sequel, leaving you high and dry with a void (hence, the proverbial room) that begs to be filled. What an absolutely terrible state to be in, and we don’t want you, our dear reader, to experience it. So without blabbering any longer, here are the best dessert places in KL and PJ for you to finish your meal on a (sugar) high.

These Are The Best Dessert Places In KL

Sweet, sweet treats. 

1. Foo Foo

Among TTDI’s laundry list of bars and restaurants stands an evening cafe where exquisite platings of mouthwatering creations await, and that place is none other than Foo Foo. The space is meticulously decorated with potted plants and rustic rattan furniture by the owners, one of which is a Le Cordon Bleu alumni. And the menu spans everything from pavlovas to butter cakes but each creation is done with great finesse using premium ingredients. Try the Pumpkin Tres Leches, a light sponge of pumpkin puree, evaporated milk, condensed milk, and heavy cream, soaked in pumpkin milk sauce. Tangy lemon whipped cream and crunchy pomegranate complete the toppings.

A quaint pitstop nestled within the quarters of a convention centre in Bukit Jalil, New Chapter by The Owls Cafe is where you come for delectably warm waffles topped with ice cream, cereal, or marshmallows. The portion is generous so they make for a perfect sharing platter, but please consume one all by yourself if you’re going through a rough time. 🙂

Kepong’s K.T.Z is one of the best places in KL for Chinese-style desserts. And you might already know what exactly this age-old institution is famous for: It’s the Mango Loh, a gargantuan shaved ice bowl topped with sweet mango cubes and puree. It’s a mountainous task to wolf down, but the hot Malaysian weather certainly makes it so much easier.

Tanuki rotates its menu between ice cream cakes, panna cottas, and gateaus—all pleasing creations that will make a sweet tooth ache in longing.

The inviting structure is home to Pandan Republic, a dessert cafe where—if it isn’t obvious enough—pandan takes precedence over other ingredients. From cheesecakes to soft serves, pandan is sprinkled in healthy doses for a fragrant aftertaste that most Malaysians are familiar with.

If you love rich umami-packed matcha then Niko Neko is a requisite visit. Across the two distinctly different outlets (one zen, the other Brutalist), it serves matcha in liquid and solid forms, and they’re meant to complement each other like peas in a pod. Need recommendations? Order the matcha latte and pair it with a crispy choux pastry stuffed with generous amounts of intense Houjicha or matcha cream. It’s important to note that both outlets are busy during weekends, so expect to wait for a seat.

For a treat of icy kakigori, drop by Kakiyuki at the ultra-hip (and admittedly gentrified) Taman Paramount.
