Mulgogi Dessert @ Sunway Carnival Mall, Seberang Jaya, Penang.

Whether Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream, artisan Ice Cream, Fried Ice Cream or Waffles; this past year has offered many ways for us to satisfy our sweet tooth and just before we wrap up the year... there is a new Japanese-Korean dessert that hits the state. Be prepared for a spike in insulin as the new kid in town- Mulgogi offers Taiyaki-inspired sweet treat, with a refreshing-chilly touch. Taiyaki is a traditional Japanese sweet snack, often stuffed with sweetened Red Beans; but now... a replacement for the sweetened Red Beans would be various smooth, lip-smacking Soft Serve... with condiments of course. Mulgogi occupies a small kiosk at the lower ground floor of Sunway Carnival Mall so it's more like a take-to-go food. Shoppers may opt to try out some of their freshly baked sweet Cakes either, if Soft Serve is not your type of food.

The kiosk saw a relentless queue last evening... it was half an hour wait. The presentation is undoubtedly alluring but it takes a lot of effort to scoop all of them out from the cake. Everything was alright and nothing terribly inventive about the dessert. The crust for the Taiyaki was airy and most crispy while the Soft Serve was smooth and possessed the necessary flavors. We did not enjoy the condiments though, weird and unnecessary frills like Pepero, Oreo, Corn Flakes and sweetened Red Beans. Both flavors (for Soft Serve) were alright and the sweetness was well-tuned but they were not that great that we would want to go all out and queue for them.

The Croissant, on the other hand, was toothsome. Probably fresh-out-of-the-oven and the crust was at its most flaky state, the texture was just amazing but the filling was nothing out of the ordinary. If I must choose, I'd vote for the Croissant over their Soft Serve.
