Soft Launch Cafe & Desserts | Sri PetalingThursday, July 14, 2016
Hi merry goers! It's been a while since I last went cafe hopping but before I can start hopping around, I better clear up the whole pile of photos in my laptop. A month back, me and a few of my colleagues stopped by a cafe in Sri Petaling. Seriously, Sri Petaling is a place filled with so many cafes and dessert places that I would really take some time before being able to finish exploring them.
Soft Launch Cafe & Desserts have been showing up in my Instagram feeds a lot especially for their waffles that really intrigued me to go have a taste. Located on the first floor, this quaint cafe is along the same row with Inside Scoop, Chatime etc. After downing a bowl of spicy pan mee plus the terrible heat wave last month, some cold and sweet desserts sure was inviting.
We decided to try their soft serve and get one of their waffles as well. Whilst our waffle was being prepared, we dug into their Pistachio Soft Serve which was served in a glass cup and topped with some nuts, pistachio powder and berries. Aesthetically pleasing, I was a tad disappointed with their soft serve which was rather icy and not as creamy as I would prefer. The pistachio flavor was rather mild as well so in general, it was not a soft serve that kept me digging in.
We were then served with the Strawberry Waffle which at the first glance was very tempting. Fresh cream and strawberry pieces were overflowing plus with a side serving of some maple syrup. Definitely a dessert which was insta-worthy but taste-wise? It fell flat especially for the price, I expected much more. Calorie-heavy dessert with the cream which I would actually appreciate it to be soft serve instead. Technically it was a waffle folded in half filled with cream and strawberries. Taste-wise it was actually pretty decent as the fresh cream does match well with the crispy waffle and strawberries. But my honest opinion, I would not return for it again especially for RM19 because I could easily indulge in better desserts for that price.
Soft Launch Cafe serves several other savoury choices as well which do look good so maybe if I were to return, I would try their savoury choices but for their desserts.... I do think I would just try another place.
