Whymsical Whisk, Damansara Kim

June 12, 2019

Keto comfort fare comes to the fore at Whymsical Whisk: Local favourites are reinterpreted through low-carb, high-fat philosophies, resulting in char kuey teow constructed with reduced-calorie konjac flat noodles (RM18; the noodles furnish a pleasantly smooth, full-bodied bite, albeit in a recipe that's less indulgent and robustly punchy compared to typical CKT) and nasi lemak comprising cauliflower rice (RM20; fragrant and flavoursome, with a tenderly fleshy, reliably seasoned chicken leg and a fresh, textured sambal that conveys a kick).

Keto-friendly cakes seem like good-for-you versions that conform to healthy-baking stereotypes, though the cafe seems to have the best, purest intentions - the tiramisu cake evokes reconstituted dimensions instead of creamy-dreamy fluffiness, an acquired taste prepared with a Lakanto alternative sweetener that channels too much artifice (RM19), while the duck egg cheese cake is more powdery than sumptuous, undermined by off-kilter dynamics of dessert cheesiness as well (RM19). The Keto Latte features whipped cream, making for an airily aromatic cuppa (RM12).
