ZenQ Desserts @ Lintas Square, KK

We know Malaysian love Taiwanese food. Many many years ago we already saw bubble tea franchises here and there, until today, the number of choices of these Taiwanese Bubble Tea has been increased to many. Recent years, Taiwan's night market's tidbits and desserts also gain locales attention, we start seeing fried spiral potato, and what I found in KK now is the Taiwanese "old timer" handmade taro (or yam) dessert and grass jelly (cincao) from ZenQ Desserts, Lintas Square here.

ZenQ was opened last December, since my first visit there a few days after their opening I did return again to try other stuff. Taro, or something texture-wise quite close to the "pearl" in bubble tea and roasted cincao are among their specialty.

Putting a complicated menu in front of the counter is a bad idea as this would block people from behind or who already know what to place in their order. During my first visit, I was standing there for 5 minutes to "study" the menu, but still I was lost. It's not because I don't know what to choose but I really don't get what it mean. They should put it somewhere else or at least get a girl to explain!

Green Bean with Barley, under the "Barley" series. The barley and green bean are equally hard, maybe this is how the Taiwanese cook the barley. RM5.90

ZenQ Recommended Grass Jelly Mix. I liked the grass jelly, the taste is a bit different than ours but I sometimes bought myself the "Taiwanese roasted grass jelly" from local stores and they taste equally good. Red bean is better than the green bean, softer, and sweeter. The green ball however is not green tea ice cream, but a scoop of ice-shaved green tea. Too bad the taro was sold out that night, but I got another chance to try it again. (RM7.50)

Here the "tapao" (take-away) version, the colorful one are the hand made taro. Pretty nice actually compared to our first visit.
The cute civet welcomes you, hahaha!
