Kakigori is a dessert bar at Taman Paramount, Petaling Jaya. It is located on the same row as Awesome Canteen. We came here for dessert after our dinner at Rakuzen Japanese Restaurant at 3 Damansara. It was indeed a Japanese themed night as we ate Japanese dinner and also Japanese dessert.
We actually visited Kakigori one or two years for their popular Japanese shaved ice dessert. Kakigori actually refers to the Japanese shaved ice dessert flavoured with syrup and sweetener. The sweetener normally uses condensed milk. However, this time we did not come for the Kakigori dessert but we want to try their new Japanese desserts instead. Besides shaved ice dessert, what are the new desserts here? Reads on to find out more about this Kakigori dessert bar.
KAKIGORI – Shaved Ice Dessert Bar at Taman Paramount serves yummy Japanese desserts
Kakigori’s Matcha Warabimochi is the first dessert we ordered for the night. Matcha refers to ground powder of processed green tea leaves and Warabimochi is a cool and smooth Mochi-like dessert which is jelly-like. All of us love this dessert.
The next dessert we ordered is this sweet and warm Omugi Soup with Matcha Ice Cream. Omugi refers to the barley in Japanese. It is actually barley soup with green tea ice cream on the top. I also highly recommend to eat this dessert during cold weather. The Omugi Soup is accompanied by Matcha kanten cubes and adzuki beans. Adzuki bean is what Chinese people call as big red bean.

Spotted this Kakigori eating tips. Basically, you should take a quick shot before eating and always start from top to bottom. Then scoop up gently and make sure you eat evenly on all sides of the Kakigori.
During this visit, we also spotted a new dessert. This is the Melon Dessert Set. It comes with White Chocolate Melon Cookies, Melon, Almond and Osmanthus Honey Daifuku. Mascarpone Melon Shortcake, Mizu Manzu and Rainbow Polka Panma Cotta are also included in this set. We wanted to try the shortcake but customers must order the whole set. Maybe next time.
The interior of Kakigori Dessert Bar
We spotted this Daruma Doll at dessert bar. Daruma Doll is a Japanese traditional doll modeled after the founder of the Zen tradition of Buddhism, Bodhidharma. Daruma is a symbol of perseverance and good luck for Japanese.
Lots of plants are planted in Kakigori. I think the ceiling is transparent for natural sun light. Do you know this dessert bar is designed by LIE (Little Ideas Everyday)?
Besides Taman Paramount, they also have branches at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur and The Gardens Mall. Please refers to their locations page for latest address, contact number and operating hours.
