Eat Me (Artisanal Desserts) @ Bangsar

My first introduction to this place was through Sean's blog @ eatdrinkkl.  As this dessert cafe is located just behind where my friends and I had decided to have our Christmas dinner, it was a no-brainer that we should head here for our post-dinner desserts since they only open in the evenings (5pm) and stay open till late at night.
The place I'm referring to is the newly opened (barely a few days old) Eat Me @ Bangsar.
Once inside, I was mesmerised by the beautiful, almost-white and pastel-shade (of baby blue and pink) interior.  It's a pretty small place, occuping just half a lot next to KGB (Killer Gourmet Burgers) by the same owners.  We arrived (probably around 10pm) and I was surprised to find the place pretty packed and waited for about 10 mins to get a table to fit all of us in.  [#Note: They're opened from 3pm till 12 midnight on weekends (and 5pm to 11pm on weekdays)...for now.]
A glance at their menu and you can see that they've got quite a selection of premium coffees and teas, signature iced teas, chocolate drinks, milkshakes, floats and desserts on offer.  [#Note: On the top of the menu, it states that this is their soft launch menu, and at the bottom, a note that says that the menu will change seasonally as they try to push the boundaries of what they do.  So, expect to see some changes in the months ahead.]
These cute (eco-friendly?) furry friends serve as table nos...hey, they can also keep the kids company while we wait for our food to arrive! :D
First up was our order of Pizookie Skillet @ RM17.90...what is a Pizookie, you ask?  Well, it's actually a hybrid term for a pizza-cookie.  So, this was a large brown butter Belgian chip cookie, with gooey marshmallow centre, topped with vanilla ice cream and filled with chocolate sauce at the bottom, served in a cute iron skillet.  This Belgian chip cookie (which I ate, phonghongbakes, not baked...hehe) had a crisp exterior and was served hot (probably due to the molten hot marshmallow inside).  This was met with a thumping approval from everyone!
Next came the Boston Shortcake @ RM18.90 which is a strawberry shortcake with vanilla ice cream, a strawberry reduction that acted as the sauce, and pcs of fresh strawberries and mangoes.  The fresh fruits and strawberry reduction provided some freshness and tartness to the shortcake that had a somewhat scone-like texture and taste.  Of course, the vanilla ice cream made it even better ;)  This was probably my favourite.
I went with something fried for our next dessert choice...their signature golden fried Spanish Churros @ RM13.90.  For this, we got 7 pcs of fried churros that have been dusted with sugar.
You can opt to eat them with either Belgian dark, milk, white chocolate or salted caramel....we chose Belgian dark chocolate.
The churros were freshly made and really crispy...we've got no complaints when it's fresh, fried and crispy!  Some might say it could be lighter, but I'm pretty happy with it as it was (nevertheless) still very good.
When I saw pancakes on the menu, I couldn't resist ordering the Ricotta Hot Cakes @ RM17.90.  These are ricotta milk batter pancakes served with sliced bananas, honeycomb butter (that they made themselves) and maple syrup.  Just spread the honeycomb butter (which adds a touch of sweetness) and let it melt onto the warm pancakes.
You need just a light drizzle of maple syrup before putting these incredibly light and fluffy pancakes into your mouth.
Our final order was the Japanese Ice Tarts @ RM8.90 (for 2) which are frozen mini Japanese cheese tarts with a choice of strawberry, Belgian chocolate, passion fruit or chempedak flavour.
This is the passion fruit flavoured frozen cheese tart....
.....and this is the strawberry flavoured one (which we preferred) but it still turned out to be our least favourite dessert of the evening.

Our drinks for the evening:
Hot Cappuccino x 2 @ RM9.90
Lemongrass Ginger Tea @ RM11.90
Signature Iced Lavender Tea @ RM10.90
Brown Cow (Root Beer Float) @ RM7.90
Actually, I was looking forward to chill with their (caffeine drink) Nutella Chill Pill but they (unfortunately) ran out of pills that night :(....I guess everybody needed a pill....kekeke!!
My Personal Opinion

When you have a cafe that's called Eat can't help but Eat Them....after all, the desserts on offer are very appealing and delectable.

This place not only satisfies one's sweet leaves you wanting more!  Definitely warrants return visits!! ;-)

  1. The bunnies very cute la

    Happy New Year

    1. Yes, they are...I think the other one is a cute squirrel lar!
      Happy New Year to cute cat and family too :)

  2. Ooohh!! A place that serves just desserts! Ah, now I see the Belgian Chip Cookie...that you ate and not baked...hee..hee... I think I can recreate that cookie but it has to be served warm for that gooey marshmallow centre effect. But I think I better don't. Not yet anyway because it would be a disaster for my waistline which recently expanded again. Darn cookies! hee..hee...

    1. I wouldn't know where to begin to bake a Belgian Chip Cookie...kekeke!! You have to make a trip there to give this cookie a's g...o..o....d ;)

  3. yay for a meal with a lot of hits! i haven't tried the pizookie and the shortcake, but i like your description of both those items :D

    1. Yeah, this place certainly have more hits than misses :D Hope you get to try the pizookie and shortcake some time soon :)

  4. Ah, now you have triggered my sweet tooth again though my sweet tooth is just at baby level compared to the masses. ;p Guess I will have to find some time to drop there for dessert one day. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Yes, you have a sweet (baby) tooth ;) I would like to think that my sweetness tolerance is slightly below the masses but not at such a low level as yours though. If you're a dessert cafe and your sweetness is not at the level that appeals to the masses, then you won't do as well, I guess.

  5. My friend blogged about this place not too long ago. The name reminds me of Alice In Wonderland.

    1. I think I remember you putting in this same comment in his blog too...kekeke!!

  6. I have such a sweet tooth! Think I'd love this spot! Happy New Year!

  7. I think you would =) Happy Holidays to you too!

  8. Bangsar is rather foreign to me, I have not explored it much at all. I always assumed it is a place where the rich go clubbing. Maybe I should start giving this place more attention.
    (My mom must not read this comment, she will bar me from going out if she knows that I am out looking for desserts!)

    1. I seldom venture to Bangsar too but was tempted by this cafe. You're not wrong in your assumption...there are a lot of clubs and happening places there.
      Shhh....don't tell your mom where you're going :D
