Honestly I did not enjoy my first visit at The Dessert Kitchen, few months ago. I got Taste of Uji Yogurt Parfait back then. It is so sweet that I was not able to finish the whole thing, and I can barely taste the Matcha flavor.

Recently my BF and I decided to have our desserts here. We ordered Tofu with Black Glutinous Rice, and Original Eggettes. Since we are still full from our lunch, we just shared our sweets. We both loooove the Tofu with Glutinous Rice, it was not too sweet, just the way we like it. We were so happy that we made the right dessert choice. The Eggettes was good too, even if we only got the original.

We are excited to try more of what they have. Looking forward for the opening of their S Maison Conrad branch.

After Raclette, we went to Fireside. After Fireside, they still wanted dessert so we ended up in Dessert Kitchen!! Hahahahaha! Talk about 128055!!

Dessert Kitchen is located just beside Tuan Tuan at the top level of Power Plant Mall near the cinemas. I quite like their interiors. It's cute and homey!

Strawberry Shaved Ice • Php 228
They ran out of the actual strawberry fruit so they replaced the fruit with mango after asking permission. Their shaved ice is similar to the one I had in Taiwan at Smoothie House! It was a thick shaved ice and sweet! This would have been better if the strawberry fruit was also available. 127827

Blueberry Kiss • Php 288
The blueberry version of Purple In Love! As my friend said, he prefers this because it's less sweet as compared to Purple In Love. I enjoyed the blueberry flavored ice and the crunchy pearls on top! I'm not a fan of the ube flavored marshmallow looking thing though. 128517 I like ube but it tasted a bit weird for me.

I might come back when I'm less full and try some of their other desserts. 128541

- Mango Pudding
- Soft yoghurt with blueberry (parfait)
- Coconut Pinacolada pudding

And.... here comes the desserts,

- the Pinacolada, very interesting, not so sweet and you can eat the bowl, yes bowl, i repeat, the bowl can be eaten haha.. they made it with coconut pudding & it is really blend well with the Pineapple syrup as the base

- the Yoghurt ice cream, actually you can change to hard or soft ice cream & alot of flavor to choose (see the kitchen area, they have the board with list of flavor), so I just realised it later on hahaha... the parfait really taste so good.. fresh & so so yummy...

- the mango pudding... all made from real mango and mango and mango, ha. Not so sweet and really taste fresh,

All worth it & yes I eat all of that wahahah~ joke .. it's eaten by two people and mostly is me haha..

[Late post]

It is undeniable that The Dessert Kitchen has really photogenic desserts. I have been eying to visit this Hong Kong dessert shop for the longest time but I never manage to do so because 1) I don’t have any other business in Rockwell and 2) Manila traffic is crazy. But I managed to pay this place a visit on Father’s Day weekend and it sure was packed!

Hello, The Dessert Kitchen!

The small and quaint dessert place was very busy on a Saturday afternoon. There were only four bar stools and a table vacant when we arrived. Luckily, the table that was vacated could accommodate four.

It took us a while to order as the menu was quite extensive. Shaved ice, pudding, soft serve ice cream, eggette… name it, The Dessert Kitchen would most likely have it.

We went with the award winning and bestseller Purple in Love (PHP258), Tofu with Hokkaido Red Beans (PHP168), Matcha Red Bean Eggette with Strawberry Ice Cream(PHP288) and Sakura Warabi (PHP168).

Service was quite fast considering that the place was busy. Purple in Love was served in less than 10 minutes.

It looked pretty good and the serving size seemed generous as it was overflowing. Then again, it might be because the bowl used wasn’t that big.

My sister took a bite and said that it tasted like those popping candy with foot shaped lollipop. I took a spoonful and it did taste similar. It had a sweet grape candy flavor. In fact, it was a bit too sweet. I had to make sure that each spoonful had a mini rice ball or two to somehow offset the sweetness of the syrup. The taro mochi ice cream tasted like ube ice cream wrapped in thin mochi and I was not impressed by it. I liked the small Kyoho Grape Seaweed Balls though.

Tofu with Hokkaido Red Beans was served next and I loved this one. I liked the contrast of the smooth texture of the tofu, chewiness of the mochi and the roughness of the red beans. The best part is that it wasn’t very sweet.

This dish is perfect for dear grandmas and grandpas who have to watch their sugar intake.

I have been dreaming of trying the raindrop cake for the longest time. I bugged R numerous times to bring me to Malingap but we always end up elsewhere. (I’m not complaining though as he brings me to better places.) But finally, I can finally judge if it does taste like jello as what Masarap Ba? claims it to be.

After a spoonful, I could say that… it did taste like jello. I’m not sure if my tastebuds are simply unrefined but I didn't get a taste of the sakura (cherry blossom). But munching it with the chewy sakura rice balls (which my sister hated since she said it tasted like perfume), brown sugar paste and red beans made it worth its price. The different textures and flavors made it more interesting. I wouldn’t buy one giant plain jello for PHP168. (Note: The Dessert Kitchen ran out of soy bean powder and offered to add brown sugar paste as replacement but I requested to add sakura rice balls instead and they obliged.)

The Matcha Red Bean Eggette was served last and it was also good.

I loved that it had red bean stuffed inside each bubble adding flavor to the bubble waffle. But I wished it was crispier so that it had more texture and bite to it. Some parts were a bit too soggy because it took us a while to remove the strawberry ice cream scoop. (I blame myself for this one as it took me a bit to finish taking shots of this dish.) The ice cream was lovely as it was a bit tangy creating contrast of flavor with the matcha and red bean. Then again, I wouldn’t pay PHP288 for this. I would be more than happy with Happy Lemon’s version at less than half the price.

Overall, The Dessert Kitchen offers a wide array of desserts and most are pretty good. Sadly though, it wasn’t good enough for me to brave the traffic just for it. I wouldn’t mind visiting it again though if I’m around the area. I’d definitely order Tofu with Hokkaido Red Beans again and perhaps one of the noodle desserts.

Finally tried the raindrop cake. We ordered Kanten and Sakura Warabi. I only liked Sakura Warabi since Kanten tasted plain.

This place is dainty, the staff who greeted us at the front was so pleasant.

We ordered:

| Kanten (198php)
Kanten + Mixed Fruits + Sauce (we chose the Green Tea Milk)

127861 This one tasted plain, nothing really special.

| Sakura Warabi (168php)
Sakura warabi kanten, sakura rice balls, brown sugar paste, red beans, and soy bean powder

127800 I liked this one, but also nothing really special. Just IG-worthy.

The extra 11088️ was for the staff who assisted us, she was really nice and answered our questions politely.

Tried their best-selling Purple In Love. It's like a glamorized version of kakigori. A little too pricey for the overall experience, but I did like the popping little balls on top that tasted like tiny grapes.

I guess if you want a very nuanced dessert, head here! This place is good conversation starter. The options can be a bit overwhelming because you'd want to try a lot of their unusual desserts.

When craving for satisfying desserts and you happen to be in Power Plant, please SKIP this kitchen.  Seriously,  you'll be consumed with regret after.

We decided to cap the night off with a matcha infused dessert.  Lola is out of the equation as we wanted something something light.   The only choice is The Dessert Kitchen.  Clarissa P wanted to try the Green Tea soft serve but they dont have it.   This is ticked me off a bit as they have a sign in the counter,  it would've been nice if they added "Not Available" on the flavors they don't have.

Anyway,  we were the only customers that time.  We got a table and browsed through the menu.   I picked Taste of Uji and asked if they have it,  server said yes.  Then i remembered they don't have the soft serve variant meant for Taste of Uji. 

Me:  Wait,  you don't have green tea soft serve pala.
Server:  Wait po,  I'll ask

He came back with reinforcements.  We asked if we can order Taste of Uji.  She briefly explained we can except that the ice cream they would use is different,  they can drizzle it with some matcha powder.  We picked Yogurt (they only have Vanilla and Yogurt Soft Serve then)

I picked the Red Bean thingy (forgot the name).  I was craving for some rice cakes and red bean that time.

Brace yourself

Taste of Uji is a a glass full of regret.  Why?  The consistency of the soft serve is too icy (I swear,  Family Mart's version is 100x better).  The rice balls doesn't have any flavour at all.  Saving grace is the ted bean.

The red bean thingy.  A bowl full of regret.   I thought this is similar to ginatan but it's different.   Matcha infused ice,  red bean and rice balls.  This is bingsu sans the milk and sugar. Gah!  The bland bowl has a price tag of php 188.  This is highway robbery! 

What the frack happened,  Dessert Kitchen??

It's been a while since I've heard about the craze regarding The Dessert Kitchen and I was really curious what it was about. The Dessert Kitchen is a franchise brought from HongKong and is located at the Power Plant Mall (near the cinemas if I remember correctly).

The only thing I ordered at that time was the PURPLE IN LOVE (P258) [11088110881108811088️/5] which was their bestseller. It has a grape shaved ice as a base topped with grapes, taro mochi ice cream, mini rice balls, and grape seaweed balls. I'm a grape person so I personally enjoyed this. I love the all the ingredients in this dessert especially the grape seaweed balls as they pop inside my mouth every time I bite into it. The mini rice balls did not taste like anything which was good since it balanced out the other sweet elements in it. The dessert can we a bit too sweet and overwhelming, so I suggest to bring a friend over to share. 128521128109 Overall, I did like it but I don't think I will be back frequently since it was really overpriced for just shaved ice. But other than that, job well done!

Disclaimer: I got the menu photos from Zomato just for reference for those others who want to try The Dessert Kitchen soon! 🙂

Finally got to try this HK dessert specialty place. Was surprised that the place was smaller than what I imagined it to be. Me and my siblings decides to go for sharing since the price was on the high end. I requested the raindrop jelly dessert since it was really eye catching. Tastewise it doesn't taste anything. You need to blend it with the red bean and sugar. What I love with this order was the 3 small matcha balls. They were all bitter good! My brother requested for the choco banana parfait. It was good but nothing special for its price. Lastly my sister requested for the strawberry eggette. I love the crispy part of the eggette but the strawberry icecream was just plain ordinary icecream.

Overall this place dessert are all IG worthy. Price is quite hefty for its taste. Was hoping more from this place. 9786

My family and just finished dinner that day at Tuan Tuan, the restaurant beside it. I told them i wanted to try this place's desserts before we leave and also so that i can still get a few more moments to bond with my relatives.

When i glanced at the menu, the first two desserts that caught my eye were the JADE DURIAN PUDDING (php 268) and SAKURA RAINDROP. Well, i'm not sure if that was the name of the second dessert, but i can probably just show a picture of it later on. haha

My opinion regarding the Jade Durian Pudding is that i find this dessert quite cute, since the green bowl like shape is a jelly and inside of it was the creamy durian. My family and relatives are actually quite fond of durian, i mean it's creamy, sweet and soft. I know not a lot are a fan of it, so i think of it as an acquired taste for some people. I think if you like durian, i don't think you'll even notice that funky smell of it. well, i don't. haha Anyway, this dessert wasn't too sweet, i think it was just right. I actually like it, but it just isn't something i would be craving for. it's like i've tried it and i'm done with it. Anyway, the durian for me wasn't that too strong, i mean you can still taste it but the flavor isn't that strong anymore. As for the jelly, as i recall it was kind of a pandan flavor.

As for the raindrop dessert, well, i've seen this dessert online. It caught my eye because it's one interesting looking dessert. I mean it looks like a clear looking glass but is actually a jelly. There are actually 2 kinds of flavors. We got the sakura, which was recommended if we preferred something that has a floral flavor. I'm not a fan of anything floral when it comes to food, but my cousin seemed to like it, so i ordered one to share. The firs thing i did when this dessert was served was shake the tray and see the jelly wiggle haha. It had a simple and nice plating, but i was quite curious as to what it does taste like. My cousin and i tried it right away and boy we think it was a waste of money. It wasn't delicious at all. It's like having different stuff in one plate and there you are trying to taste all the flavors in one bite. I just find this dessert weird tasting. Totally not going to order this again.

Anyway, since we didn't enjoy this, Dad wanted to order another dessert, which was the Valrhona Chocolate ice cream. We only had one scoop of this hard ice cream, which was Php 128. It didn't taste too sweet, you can really taste the dark chocolate and this scoop sure this make this night better for me after tasting the raindrop dessert.

My overall experience may not be so good here, but i'm still willing to give this place another try by ordering their other desserts on my next visit.

After our dinner at Kaya, went around Rockwell to look for some dessert. I remember the dessert kitchen having such long lines back then so we decided to check it out.
When we got there, there were several tables available. I really had no idea what to order or what it if it's just soft serve etc so i asked the lady behind the counter. She was nice but handed us a menu instead of explaining our options.
So we got seated, Mejo elbow so elbow with the next table 128517 menu was quite extensive from parfaits to those clear gelatin drops (forgot the name 128518) we decided to just get a sundae each (php98), I got the cocoa kiss which had cream, chocolate rice crispies, coffee jelly , a small banana slice and a scoop of chocolate ice cream. Hubby got the midsummer something which had mangoes and nata i think.
You know why I've forgotten our orders? Ang tagal dumating as in 128164128164128164 took about 15-20mins and one follow up for our orders to arrive! Seriously! Ganun ba kahirap mag scoop ng ice cream?
Our orders finally arrived and it was good naman. Nothing super special for me or hubby, buti it's only 168 each.

Finally! Able to try this store. I have been waiting for a long time to be able to try this desert store.

Upon arrival, we queued for about 30min as there were a lot of people waiting in line to get their hands on their deserts. There is also a take out lane so you can eat it on the go without waiting for a table.

Upon sitting on the table, I was able to notice that they have that clean and relaxing ambiance for one to eat their deserts happily.

I ordered Jade Durian Pudding (P268) as I had just eaten my dinner. The pudding was breathtaking, so my expectations were very high. The green bowl is made of gelatin which I would say is not that good since it taste bland and does not fit with the durian when eating it together. The durian however was exactly how it taste coming from the durian fruit but a lot colder. 128516

I've been curious about the raindrop cake, so when I saw it on the menu here, I knew I had to order it. Their version is called "Nippon Warabi" and supposedly comes with warabi kanten (the raindrop cake), red beans, green tea rice balls, brown sugar paste, and soy powder. They were out of soy powder during our visit and offered to replace it with more red beans or brown sugar paste. I actually wanted more green tea rice balls and asked if I could have that instead, and they were happy to accommodate me.

The raindrop cake tastes really refreshing with a pleasing light flavor. The other components added a little more taste and texture per spoonful.

Yum!

It's our first time here and we Loved all that we ordered, though the durian pudding's jelly has a bitter aftertaste. Not sure if it was the jelly itself or from the food color they used. I liked that the durian had a strong flavor and went well with the aloe vera jellies. As for the brownie, it's thick and the mochi wrapper is delish, but note that this is fried brownie and you can really taste the oil. As for the eggetes, it's a great snack, loved the cheese dip that taste like bacon with a bit of sage and mushroom flavor. The best seller which I happen to forget the name is super refreshing and yummy. Such a delightful dessert place! Love to come back soon :)

I went here for the Raindrop Cake or Nippon Warabi. This is one of those "hip" foodie trends in New York that I've heard about when I was there.

So is it a blob of water? A silicone breast implant?

Made from water and agar, it's practically flavorless. BUT, ZERO CALORIES! Well, almost.

The one I ordered is the Sakura version.

This one had sakura mochi balls, red beans, and brown sugar paste.

The nippon warabi has a very delicate flavor. But if you combine all the components, you'll get a great mix of flavor and textures.

If you have a sweet tooth, you might find this bland. But, I enjoyed this immensely. Plus, lower calories. Yay!

Will be back again bec it's only 168 pesos. 128523
