The competition is fierce as there are an endless number of food eateries at Damansara Uptown but Miru Dessert Cafe is one of the few standing strong in the neighborhood. It started out as a Japanese dessert-inspired cafe mainly offering Shibuya Toast and Kakigori. The business has since expanded and the brand has presence across Klang Valley now. The menu remains as a dessert-focused menu without much expansion but we were glad that they have managed to maintain the quality over the years. Though not exactly the cheapest around but they do not skimp on ingredients, definitely one of the better choices when it comes to Japanese desserts or Toast.
Strawberry Cheesecake Kakigori (Rm 25.90)
Cheddar Cheese Toast (Rm 21.90)
Miru's Strawberry Cheesecake Kakigori was impressive... the ice was silky smooth and fine while the Strawberry 'syrup' was carefully sweetened. It did not feel very 'artificial' and we trust real Strawberries have been used in the making of the 'syrup'. Just as you dig further and getting monotonous on the 'syrup' and 'shave ice' combo, there will be cubed Cheese Cake to further entice you. Though not exactly the best Cheese Cake, it provides a good bite and a fine touch to the icy treat.
For the signature Shibuya Toast, we picked Cheddar Cheese Toast out of 8 available options. The curly Cheddar Cheese was a good mix to the sweet Toast; the sweet-savory combination was simply magical. Spread some Ice Cream and fresh Cream over the Toast and you will experience an explosion of flavors in the mouth. There seems to be so many things happening at the same time... creamy sweet, pillowy soft but buttery Toast... interjected with the savory Cheddar Cheese; good attempt I must say... and best to be shared by a few.
