Bangkok is the most Instagrammed city in Asia-Pacific for 2015 and it shows that Thais really love to use Instagram. They either post selfies or photos and videos of beautiful food that are so instagrammable. One of the places where you can find beautiful desserts is at Kyo Roll En. They specialise in Kyoto-inspired desserts.
They can be found in most major shopping centres around Bangkok.
I was at Union Mall to do some shopping when I was attracted by one of their new items – Raindrop Mizu Mochi or commonly known at Raindrop Cake / Pudding!
You may have seen raindrop cakes at other places but I would say that Kyo Roll En really won in terms of the presentation!
After doing what I needed to do with my video, this is the final product on picture.
So what does it actually taste like?
The raindrop portion is actually quite solid that it’s almost like Konjac Jelly except there was no taste in this one. The flavour actually comes from the Kinako Roasted Soy Bean Powder and Kuromitzu Okinawan Brown Sugar syrup.
Other than these, Kyo Roll En is actually famous for all things Matcha, Charcoal and Cone Parfait.
As I was flipping through the menu, I saw a drink which captured me – Momo Tennensui! It’s actually Chilled Japanese Peach. It was definitely a thirst quencher!
