Tong Pak Fu (糖百府) @ Paradigm Mall, Kelana Jaya

Coming across the Tong Pak Fu open outlet at Paradigm Mall, one of my friends said "No, I prefer Taiwanese desserts with grass jelly and taro balls." 


But when we check out their menu, it surprises me with a wide array of delightful selection of hot and cold, traditional and contemporary Hong Kong desserts including his favourite Taiwanese Grass Jelly. 


This is the first Tong Pak Fu with open concept, others are tucked neatly in a restaurant lot. Using loads of recycled woods, the vibrantly painted furniture simply catches my attention.

#1 Black Sesame Cream (芝麻糊) @ RM5.80

Without delay, we manage to grab the last few seats available and I'm the first to order my favourite black sesame cream. It is very thick, almost glue-like. Fine and smooth, its sweetness is not cloying at all.

#2 Black Glutinous Rice Cream with Coconut Milk

More often than that, I have powdery paste, but this is a smooth, black glutinous rice cream with chunkiness along with the aromatic coconut milk. So rich in natural flavours with no sweetener at all. Thumbs up!

#3 Tracka Durian Snow Ice (留恋飘香--竹脚) @ RM11.80 (Regular) / RM14.80 (Large)

I am surprised to know that the white snow is made of Tracka durian pulp! So finely shaved, the rich flavour of durian leaves a lingering mild sweetness in my mouth. If you're a durian lover, try the richer D24 Durian Snow Ice.

 #4 Mango Snow Ice (芒果秋香) @ RM8.80 (Regular) / RM11.80 (Large)

Tong Pak Fu has the "King of Mango" series. A bowlful of golden yellow mango juice promises a taste of  refreshing summer. Floating on it are jellies and crystal pearls and I'm delighted with the rich layers of flavours!

 #5 Guava Snow Ice (石榴秋香) @ RM8.80 (Regular) / RM11.80 (Large)

Another cold sensation to go for. When the crystal pearls burst with its juices, I'm totally smitten with the sweet aroma!

 #6 Chilled Mango Sago Crème with Pomelo (杨枝甘露) @ RM8.80 per bowl 

Topped with abundance of sago pearls, pomelo pulp and crystal pearls, the texture is simply excellent! Then I try one spoon, and am entranced with the fresh mango cubes hidden in this creamy dessert.  It's so chilling with a mellow scent.

#7 Also comes in cup @ same price

#8 Chocolate Lava Cake with Vanilla Ice Cream (心太软配云呢拿雪糕) @ RM12.80

Next, we're blessed with a 5-star Western dessert. The chefs learned the art of pastry in Hong Kong, and now back with this dainty creation.

The outer layer of Swiss chocolate cake is oven-baked into crusty perfection, and the best moment arrives when the warm, smooth chocolate lava oozes in my mouth! 

#9 Crème Brulee (焦糖炖蛋) @ RM7.80

Comparable to those produced at 5-star hotels, it has special vanilla seeds to give a more distinctive flavours in the egg pudding. So smooth and chilled egg custard it has, delicious!

#10 Double-boiled Snow Pear with Snow Fungus (银耳香杏炖鸭梨) @ RM8.80

The traditional Chinese dessert is so warm and mild in sugar level. So light broth yet stuffed with health goodness, I certainly love this for its nourishing values!

 #11 Strawberry Napoleon with Vanilla Ice-Cream (士多啤梨拿破仑配云呢拿雪糕) @ RM10.80

Each thin, crispy waffle is layered with lightly sweet cream. A bite of this delight with a spoonful of ice cream is simply heavenly!


#12 Glutinous Rice Balls with Black Sesame & Peanut Toppings (汤圆) @ RM4.80

The selection is almost endless here! The traditional Chinese glutinous rice balls is tasteless in nature but when drizzled with bits of crusted peanuts, it becomes sweet with maximum chewiness! 


The best way of eating Tang Yuan that I've ever experienced!

 #13 Curry Fish Balls (咖喱鱼蛋) @ RM6.80

If you find the desserts too light and want something more filling, then the savoury menu caters for your needs! The fish balls are of ping pong ball size, each very bouncy and well-infused with rich curry aroma! 

 #14 Braised Sweet Soy Chicken Wings (卤水雞翼) @ RM7.80

Verdict:
1. Everything is just so light and not as sweet as typical desserts. These are way too healthy!
2. In overall, the desserts at Tong Pak Fu easily beats many Hong Kong and Taiwanese desserts.
3. Recommended: Mango and Durian series of desserts.
