Gula Apong Desserts at Oh Apong Cafe

Hey buddies!

Have you heard of gula apong before? Well, gula apong is actually a kind of sweet substance produced from the sap of nipah palm tree commonly found in Sarawak. Taste-wise, gula apong is less sweet compared to refined sugar with hints of salted caramel flavour, and is high in minerals and vitamins.

I learned about this from a cafe I recently visited called ๐—ข๐—ต ๐—”๐—ฝ๐—ผ๐—ป๐—ด ๐—–๐—ฎ๐—ณ๐—ฒ in Emporis, Kota Damansara.

I’ve had a great dining experience there. The ambience was cozy and relaxing with soothing deco and interior. ๐Ÿ’ฏ% insta-worthy.

I was introduced to their must-try item, the ๐—ฆ๐—ถ๐—ด๐—ป๐—ฎ๐˜๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—ฒ ๐—”๐—ฝ๐—ผ๐—ป๐—ด soft serve ice-cream, which was really delicious – rich but not too sweet, with a smooth consistency and creamy texture, topped with crunchy bits of coconut flakes.

For pastry, I had a ๐—ฃ๐—ฎ๐—ถ๐—ป ๐—ฎ๐˜‚ ๐—–๐—ต๐—ผ๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐—น๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ฒ. This is the bomb! Crunchy and flaky puff pastry with moist dark chocolate filling in the centre. Every bite feels like heaven. Yes! Approved by yours truly, a hardcore fan of chocolate! ๐Ÿคค

Another pastry which I strongly recommend is the ๐—–๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—บ๐—ฒ ๐—•๐—ฟ๐˜‚๐—น๐—ฒ ๐—ข๐˜†๐—ฎ๐—ธ๐—ถ. It’s got creamy custard on the inside, with crunchy burnt sugar on the outside. Full of surprises, this is definitely a must-try!

I also had a cup of ๐—œ๐—ฐ๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐—”๐—ฝ๐—ผ๐—ป๐—ด ๐—–๐—ผ๐—ณ๐—ณ๐—ฒ๐—ฒ ๐—Ÿ๐—ฎ๐˜๐˜๐—ฒ to chill with, perfect for my coffee break! ๐Ÿ˜ I like the aroma and taste very much. Perfect combination of milk and espresso, mixed with melted gula apong to taste.
