Japanese Roll Cakes: Kakigori @ Taman Paramount, PJ

May 28, 2017

The Rolls-Royce of roll cakes, with a dreamy centre of layered cream enfolded in the fluffiest sponge: Kakigori recently introduced this super-scrumptious indulgence to bolster its signature selection of shaved ice treats, cementing its spot as a terrific destination for top-drawer Japanese desserts.

Youll currently find two tea-based flavours (Uji Matcha & Hojicha) for these cakes, with a third (Genmaicha) to be launched very soon.  What makes them stand out is the attention to detail - it took many months for Kakigoris founders to perfect their recipe, coupling Japanese-sourced ingredients like ceremonial-grade green tea powder from Kyoto with the best of local eggs. The result: Cakes with distinctive flavours & delicate textures, destined to impress.

Its worth sampling all three variations: Uji Matcha is mildly bittersweet, Hojicha bears the hallmark of roasty-toasty nuances, while Genmaicha boasts a fragrant mellowness. Every cake is packed with a pleasurably proportioned duet of the cream of its respective flavour & fresh milk cream, making for a symphony of soft & smooth, light & moist.

Roll cakes are available daily at RM10 per slice, RM18 for two slices, or RM50 if youd like an entire cake (we sure would!).

We had the opportunity to also try one of the kakigori flavours of the month for July - Japanese sweet potato. For fans of Kakigoris ever-evolving special flavours (which have ranged over the months from Roasted Pineapple to Sakura), this one looks poised to be another success. Thanks to Kakigori for brightening up our week.
