KAKIGORI Dessert Bar at Taman Paramount, Petaling Jaya

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 @ Taman Paramount's Matcha Warabimochi
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.

Besides the Matcha Warabimochi, we also tried the Kinako Warabimochi. Kinano refers to roasted soybean flour. I personally prefer the Matcha Warabimochi, maybe because I like the taste of green tea.

Omugi Soup with Matcha Ice Cream at Kakigori @ Taman Paramount, Petaling Jaya
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.
