Fish-shaped waf­fle cone

Time Out Malaysia Kids - - Eating Out -

Ever heard of the Korean carp cakes called bun­geop­pang? Sim­i­lar to the taiyaki in Ja­pan, bun­geop­pang is the Korean vari­a­tion of the iconic carp-shaped dessert and at Aboong, it’s served as a cone for frozen yo­ghurt.

The in­fu­sion of mul­ti­ple tastes, tex­tures and the novel pre­sen­ta­tion caused a food trend that pre­vi­ously took Korea by storm. At Aboong, they put pre­mium yo­ghurt ice cream in­side its gap­ing mouth and a sweet fill­ing at the bot­tom of the cone. Choco­late sauce, bis­cuit crumbs and a skewer of choco­late-cov­ered fruits are then added on top. The waf­fle cone is slightly crispy on the out­side and soft and chewy on the in­side, which goes per­fectly with the creamy soft yo­ghurt ice cream – a dessert within a dessert.

As for the fill­ing, kids can choose from three flavours – red bean, cus­tard cream and Nutella. We tried red bean and Nutella, which was an un­ex­pect­edly per­fect com­bi­na­tion of flavours. With the free­dom to choose your own top­pings and fill­ings, this carp-shaped dessert is like a cute empty can­vas for you to cre­ate what­ever ex­otic flavour takes your fancy.
