Rum & Raisin Kit Kat

Hello Kit Kat junkies! 

Here I am hitting you with another kit kat flavour and this is one of my favourites!! 


I love everything rum & raisin from ice cream to cookies and of course chocolate! I immediately bought two boxes the moment I saw it although I haven't tried it before. =P 

It's a white chocolate kit kat but don't be fooled because the moment you tear open the wrapping, the sweet smell of rum & raisin comes bursting out! The aroma is so good that I could smell it all day! 

It's a little sweeter compared to other kit kats but I think the white chocolate had something to do with it. My verdict? TWO THUMBS UP BABY!! 

The box sells for ¥800 (approx. RM24) and it holds 12 kit kats. I found this at the Aqua City souvenir shop on the 3rd floor. 

That's it for this post!

Rocku Yakiniku, Pavilion

Yo peeps! 

This post is a bit overdue but I'll try to explain the juiciness as best as I can remember! =)

Rocku Yakiniku...now where to start...ah yes! You all know what barbeque rite but did yoi know that there are different ways to have barbeque? Rocku Yakiniku is a Japanese style barbeque joint that uses hot coals and a barbwire grill. 

The line into the restaurant on the 6th floor of Pavilion was extremely long! Remember to make a booking if you don't want to wait 30 minutes or more. 

The staff will bring a pot of coal and place it under the wire once you've ordered. There will be a an order sheet on the table for you to tick what kind of meat you would like. Since they use coal to cook the meat, it is on a 70 minute time limit so eat as much as you can...FAST! 

Vegetables and sauces can be found at the buffet area...not much to choose from but I like grilled capsicum and pumpkin! I also question the inclusion of apples...i tried to make grilled apples but it was a little too late by the time I had enough space to grill it...

We had a portion of all the meat to try since it was our first time there and we didn't know how big the portions were. As a pork lover...love it!!! Gotta go again one day to experiment marinating sauces! Le boyfriend is good at that! 

The overall grill size is pretty small but it cooks quite fast especially at the beginning when the coal is at its hottest so remember to keep an eye on it! 

We also called a few bottles of Kirin! There was a beer girl walking around the restaurant so be on the look out for her for she may have promotional beers to give out! 

That's all for this post...sorey if it wasn't as juicy as I said it would be but I must admit that it was quite good albeit a bit expensive! 

Shall leave you guys with some pics of us! That's it for this post!

Mad About Coco, Fahrenheit 88

Happy belated Valentines everyone! 

I hope you all had a good Valentines! Mine was spent at home with too much fish head noodle soup! Hahaha! Don't get me wrong, we did have a plan for the day until we realised that every restaurant will probably jack up the prices and everywhere would be full. 

^ I wrote that a month ago and I have no idea what I was going to write next anymore...=P

Anywayz! I finally got a chance to meet up with some of my friends that I met in Melbourne during my RMIT days! I hadn't tried Mad About Coco yet and was dying to try after le friend Jun said they had cronuts! *Can't find a decent cronut in Malaysia...le sigh*

Alright! Enough talking! Let's get to some photos! 

We went to the branch at Fahrenheit 88. It is located on the 1st floor near the back if you're coming from the Bukit Bintang entrance. It's pretty spacious and it has a nice view of Bukit Bintang. The four of us grabbed a table at the back. 

We noticed this stand with afro wigs and big funky glasses on the way in and guess what we did! XD 

Man! That was so funny and fun at the same time! You gotta take some photos and selfies with them on when you go over! 

On to the food! I obvious ordered the Magic Cronut and I also ordered a Chocolate Bomb drink a.k.a. hot chocolate. The girls ordered a Innocent Devil Tiramisu Ball cause we heard it's fun to play with...oops!...I mean eat! XD 

Chocolate Bomb (RM12)

The drink came first! It was pretty cute with the frozen chocolate heart with the Mad About Coco Sticker at the top! It turned out to be one of those hot chocs where you get a block of chocolate and a cup of hot milk then you just stir the milk with the chocolate and PRESTO!! you have hot choc! My verdict? Meh...chocolate mixed with milk...not that impressive...

Magic Cronut (RM20)

Behold the magic cronut! with its shot of chocolate sauce and oreo crumble! My verdict? ABSOLUTELY TOO MUCH! The chocolate is super overpowering and made us super jelat! The cronut was also not flaky but hard...it was so hard to cut especially since there's cream in the middle...

Innocent Devil Tiramisu Ball (RM20)

Finally the Innocent Devil Tiramisu Ball! Presentation wise...pretty and following the latest trend I guess? You had to free the trapped tiramisu from the chocolate ball prison by helping the brownie soldiers pour the moulten chocolate onto the ball! It was pretty fun to watch the chocolate melt the ball in unique ways since each person pours differently. Taste wise? Nothing special...

I would say that Mad About Coco is one of those trendy chocolate cafes where you can get your bi-anual chocolate fix then get really sick of chocolate and avoid it for the next few months...thus why I say bi-anually. I probably won't go back again but good for a try and some joking quality time with wigs and friends! =) 

Let me leave you guys with some chocolate doodles! Can you see the bike? That's it for this post!

Beni-Imo/Red Potato Kit Kat

Hi Kit Kat Junkies! 

If you've read my Kit Kat Haul post then you'd know that I have a lot of Kit Kat to review! Today's post is on Beni-Imo (紅いも) Kit Kat or loosely translated as Red Potato Kit Kat. 

Found this particular flavour at Aqua City Mall, Odaiba. There is a souvenir shop on the first floor which sells it. It is a bit more expensive compared to the other shops but that's probably because there are more sticks included. Priced at ¥2800 (~RM84) per box. 

It actually tastes like a sweeter kit kat-ish sweet potato. It's pretty good on the first stick but gets a tad bit sweet after a while. Good for a try. 

That's it for this post!

Hot Japanese Chili/Yawatayaisogoro Ichimi Flavour Kit Kat

Hi Kit Kat fans! 

From my previous post, you all know that I have lots of yummy Kit Kats to review! After reading numerous Kit Kat posts on the internet, I went to Japan looking for chili Kit Kat and lookie lookie what I found the moment I almost gave up at the airport! 

Hot Japanese Chili or Yawatayaisogoro Ichimi (八幡屋磯五ロ一味) Flavoured Kit Kat! 

It looked like a normal dark chocolate Kit Kat but the taste sure isn't! It has a strong dark chocolate taste combined with the subtle spiciness of the chili! I love it!! No regrets on this one! 

I only found this in one of the souvenir shops at Haneda airport. Sad to say the Kit Kat Chocolaterie was a bit far off for me to visit this time but definitely going next time to try more flavours! 

That's it for this post!
