DSC 08062 - Food Review: UFO Desserts & Drinks @ Kepong

I’m sure all of us here always complain that the weather in Malaysia is too hot. I, however, found a blessing in disguise here: at least we can enjoy cool cold desserts and drinks here right? Talk about positivity! 😀

I never hesitate a moment when I was invited to review UFO Desserts & Drinks at Bandar Menjalara since it’s really really near from Clumsy Boy’s house at Kepong. Located along the busy streets of Bandar Menjalara just opposite Shell petrol station, they offer a wide range of desserts and drinks here to satisfy my sweet tooth.

Currently addicted to Gong Cha‘s Winter Melon Tea, I must try UFO’s Winter Melon Tea with Grass Jelly. The taste was quite alright and refreshing. I like the fact that I have something to chew on while drinking it but it would taste better if they add some salted cream on top it though. Diversifying from tea, they also have Honey Peach Yoghurt Smoothie with colorful Rainbow Jelly that definitely cheered up my day. To cater the need of customers, all beverages’ sugar level can be customized.

Hot Grass Jelly with Mini QQ Balls

Here at UFO, taro balls are known as QQ balls and they take pride on their hand made QQ balls. On a cool rainy day, I’ll be sure to order this Hot Grass Jelly with Mini QQ Balls to warm up my stomach. But… the mini QQ balls are too cute to be eaten, don’t you think so?

Matcha Ice Series with Red Bean, Taro, Ocha Balls and Yoghurt Popping Balls (RM 6.00)

One thing I really love about UFO is generous amount of toppings they give. They’re not stingy at all in this department. Just look at how full the bowl of Matcha Ice Series is and you’ll know what I mean. The Ocha Balls taste surprisingly pleasant although I expected it to taste “greenishly bitter”. Thumbs up to them!

    Grass Jelly Series with Sweet Potato, Pearl and QQ balls topping (RM 6.00) 

UFO also offer Soya Ice Series and Grass Jelly Series. I’m lucky to be able to try all because I’ll be spoilt for choice if I were asked to choose. As usual, QQ balls are a must for me if I were to eat dessert because I really love to chew on it.

UFO Lemon Aiyu with Aiyu Jelly and Yoghurt Popping Balls (RM 4.50)

If you’re already bored with the usual desserts that other dessert chains already have, fret not. They also have this special UFO Lemon Aiyu with Aiyu Jelly and Yoghurt Popping Balls. You’ve gotta try the Yoghurt Popping Balls! Chewing on it is really really fun! When it pops, you’ll taste the sourish yoghurt burst out from the yoghurt balls. Put a lot in your mouth and it’ll burst like bomb once you chew hahahaha!

Last but not least in the desserts department, is the QQ ball series. Shaved ice is accompanied by various toppings like red bean, QQ balls and Ocha balls, perfect on a hot sunny day and I bet it’s quite filling too.

Fries galore! (RM 5 each)

SURPRISE! There’s french fries!! My favorite snack of all time! They offer 5 flavors which are Wasabi, Seaweed, BBQ, Cheese and Chilli. Don’t say I didn’t warn you, seaweed and cheese flavor are very addictive! To add some excitement to your taste buds, try Wasabi. I guarantee you’ll be surprised. I had a ‘WOW’ moment when I tasted it 🙂

    its a brilliant idea to have a mobile app to replace the plastic or card loyalty cards. no more need to carry another pouch for the cards:D let's hope more retailers adopt the loyalty card mobile app idea.

    1. Charmaine Pua says:

      Yeap I also hope they'll have more partners!

  12. Katrina Tong says:

    Any idea how does this compare to others alike eg. Snowflakes, Blackball, etc? Snowflakes in my opinion has dropped in standard quite a bit recently.

    1. Charmaine Pua says:

      Then you should really try this!
