The name BlackBall was taken from the main ingredient, ‘Xian Cao‘ which is a type of ‘black’ jelly and taro ‘balls’ in their dessert creations. The founder, Mr. Tang was an accomplished tour guide and dessert connoisseur in Taiwan. He made his own recipe using ‘Xian Cao’ and gets his supply from ‘Guan Xi‘ district, a place that is famous for its high quality ‘Xian Cao’. The first outlet in Taipei was opened in 2006 and since then, the signature BlackBall has gained success and is one of the biggest dessert chains in Taipei, having over 20 outlets there.
BlackBall in Malaysia
The first outlet of BlackBall is located at SS15, Subang Jaya. Due to overwhelming response, it is also now available at Sri Petaling, Damansara Uptown, Johor Bahru and Penang. I had the chance to visit the Sri Petaling outlet on one sunny afternoon, craving for something cool to relieve my dehydration.
Clean and neat arrangements makes me feel welcomed
