Coconut Grove Dessert Corner @ Bandar Utama

The current hot spell in Kuala Lumpur has been making us craving for cendols and ABC (Air Batu Campur aka Ice Kacang). We visited Gyuniku Signature at TTDI but somehow they do not have stock of cendol. Being the crazy craver, Capt'n Hook asked me where can we head next for cendol nearby. I replied him that there's a place that sells coconut jelly though and "ting" it went on his head... jelly (his fave) is a great alternative. And so off we went to Coconut Grove Dessert Corner which is located at the other quieter part of Bandar Utama in Oasis Business Centre. It's just a small cluster of shops here with ample free parking. A bonus indeed.

And how I got to know about this place? Of course from my fave kar jie ;-)

Capt'n Hook ordered this Coconut Jelly With Cendol (RM5.80).

Coconut Jelly With Cendol (RM5.80) - 1

Such a wonderful idea of melding cendol, gula melaka (palm sugar syrup) and coconut milk with the cold wobbly coconut jelly!!!

And so, one is not enough, Capt'n Hook proceeded with his second coconut jelly, a plain one (RM5.20). That's done to cool him down.

Coconut Jelly Original (RM5.20)

I was thirsty so went for Coconut Grove Signature Shake (RM7.50), an ice blended vanilla ice cream topped with coconut jelly and young coconut flesh. At the bottom, suck out the bouncy rainbow jelly. When it arrived, I thought this is going to be quite heavy tasting but surprisingly it's not. It's refreshing and I slurp down in a jiffy.

As for Boi Boi, he will zoom into anything chocolate. Coconut Grove here serves a rather moist and chocolaty steamed cake. Quite innovative to serve the vanilla ice cream inside the emptied core to prevent the ice cream from melting all over the plate.

Steamed Choc Cake (RM5.00)

The menu is not extensive but there are some light bites such as nasi lemak/mee siam packets; Nyonya kuih and tong sui (sweet soup) that changes daily. On Monday & Wednesday, you'll find Red Bean; Snow Fungus Longan on Wednesday; Mak Chuk (wheat/gandum) on Thursday & Saturday; Black Glutinous Rice on Friday & Sunday and Winter Melon Longan on everyday except Wednesday.

Just when we thought the place is very quiet and remote, in came a few families who almost occupied the entire shop which we happily vacate our table for them.
