FOR a chocolate lover like me, the first bite is crucial. It has to give you goose bumps and thoroughly spoil you with the playfulness of flavours and textures that simply melt in your mouth. Mokaya chocolaty desserts at Mokaya Cafe do that to me and I fell in love at first bite.
My mum and I had been eyeing this cafe at Aeon Mall in Shah Alam for the longest time but could not try it because we were always in a hurry. Finally, here we are with some leisure time to try out their offerings.
We order the Mango Milkshake with melted white chocolate, milk and mango ice cream. Surprisingly, this rich creamy concoction is not that sweet, making you want to sip it all the way till the end!
Holding the cool, tall glass in my hand makes me feel like I am vacationing on a tropical island. It also has chunks of white chocolate, giving you that tingling feeling as you take a bite. The mango ice-cream is delicious too. Tingling mint chocolate bar.
We also order the Bratty Brownie. This is a must try! It is chocolate brownie topped with peanut butter spread and roasted marshmallows, and served with two scoops of ice-cream. It looks as good as it tastes.
The first bite of this sinful dessert is absolutely heavenly. The warmth of the cake and the roasted marshmallows makes it a top notch dessert. The peanut butter gives the brownie a nutty taste so this dessert is not just all about chocolate. The ice-cream and melted chocolate is simply sensational. You’d want this dessert all to yourself. And the best part is, the chocolate is locally made. I’m impressed!
Mokaya chocolates are produced by Cameron Highland-based Shalimar Teahouse. The chocolates are made from fine cocoa beans to give that distinct delicious taste.
Mokaya is named after an ancient pre-Olmec culture based in the Soconusco region of Mexico — one of the first sedentary settlements in Mesoamerica in the centuries before 1,200 BCE. Archaeologists have found residues from cocoa beverages inside ceramic drinking vessels that suggested the people of the Mokaya culture were already indulging in chocolate drinks back then. Mokaya chocolates endeavour to meet the purest form of chocolates as enjoyed back in the days.
At Mokaya Cafe, chocolate bars are also displayed on the shelves. Bring some
