the light as air banana caramel funnel cake, which we both love to bits
Confession time again! It has been ages since I dropped by 1 Utama. I must admit I absolutely hate battling with loads of people for a carpark space and jostling with others when the mall is packed. While I have found one way to easily find a carpark space during weekends, it still does not mean I'm ever eager to drop by this minefield of people.
let's go spanish with these churros
After a long absence, we finally braved the traffic and ended up here to sample these unusual snacks for a quick dessert. I have had this small place in my "to-do" list for the longest time ever but never got around to it until last weekend, when I finally got some time to r & r away. Located just opposite Cold Storage, this small store serves interesting churros (RM5.80) - that Spanish deep fried snack one can never get enough. Best thing about these "doughnuts", like some term them, are they're made fresh and as and when you order them. Crisp on the outside, these were nice on their own sprinkled with cinnamon sugar or dipped in molten chocolate lava. While the texture of the churros was nice, we were a little dissapointed with the watery and lacklustre chocolate dip we received that just didn't add any oomph!
Instead, we found our epiphany with the very unusual funnel cake they served here. Made from a flour batter that is drizzled in hot oil to form a flat cake, the funnel cake (RM8.80 for the banana caramel ice cream) won us both over with its light as air but crunchy texture. Simply heavenly with chopped bananas, a drizzle of caramel and vanilla ice cream. Only problem would be to eat this elegantly, so don't order this on a hot date, unless you don't want a second date with that guy or gal ever again. The stall also does roti paratha, thick toasts, various flavours for churros including ones that have fillings, glutinous rice, cupcakes and etc. Seating is quite limited within the area and some tall tables outside.
