I was dashing for cover on a typical sizzling hot day in JB, when I stumbled upon this cool oasis, Food Décor in Taman Pelangi. The café was surrounded by heavy canvas curtains enveloping it like a tent, and shielding it from the scorching sun. There were cooling mist fans all around the café blowing a cool air curtain to keep the heat out. This was a welcome respite from the stifling heat and humidity outside.
Needing to cool down fast, I ordered this fresh mango pudding which was garnished with pamelo and sago. The staff were friendly and efficient, and my cold dessert arrived in just a couple of minutes. The mango pudding was most refreshing.
I was enjoying the cool and free wifi so much that I decided to treat myself to a second dessert, now a durian snow ice, which was shaved ice with fresh durian topping.
Both the cold desserts were good, but what really caught my eye the whole time were those tiny colourful things staring out wide-eyed at me from inside this refrigerated showcase.
In the end, I mustered enough willpower to chomp off its head in one bite J The chocolate and cheese insides were basically sweet with a nut adding a little interesting texture to the treat.
