Sweet Hut – 24-carat gold

Sweet Hut SS2, 66, Jalan SS2/67, 47300, Petaling Jaya, Selangor, Malaysia

We woke up early on a Saturday morning to watch Mortal Instruments.

If you haven’t watched the movie, good. You still can save yourself the pain.

It’s essentially Twilight: teen-puppy-love-drama-bullcrap mashed up with some supernatural mumbo-jumbo. Just like in Twilight, there is supposedly a secret world unknown to mortals. Just like in Twilight, the main male lead is brooding, distant, melodramatic and androgynous. Just like in Twilight, the female lead has two men interested in her. Only this time, instead of a choice between bestiality and necrophilia, she has to pick either a slightly geeky regular guy (who may soon be developing vampire abilities) and a demon-murdering emo kid powered by angel blood. And she is at least capable of showing more than 2 expressions on her face.

Kristen Stewart looked ecstatic when she found out there’s finally a movie that’s as good as Twilight.

Worst of all, it was over 2 hours long! There are so many ways I could make better use of that time: staring at a blank wall, for example. Or counting the number of hairs on my forearm.

Needless to say, I left the theater at Tropicana City Mall with a bad taste in my mouth.

Luckily, the perfect thing to clean that taste away was nearby, at Sweet Hut SS2.

They serve some pretty decent desserts but in my opinon, the star of the show, the jewel in the crown, the piece de resistance, has to be their D24 Durian Snow Ice.

I go weak at the knees thinking about how good this tasted.

The colour looks a little light, but you forget that minor detail when the thing is placed in front of you. The wonderful aroma of durian assaults your nostrils immediately. Then you take a spoonful in your mouth and the rich, fragrant, addictive flavour permeates your entire mouth. The snow ice is so creamy it felt like eating chilled durian flesh.

The cubes of relatively bland grass jelly were a nice touch. Pop one in your mouth to give your overworked tastebuds a short break before diving into that durian goodness again.

Just a few spoonfuls in and soon the shittiness of Mortal Instruments was a fading memory.

One last thing: This is a new item that’s not on their permanent menu. It might be a temporary dessert that’s only available during durian season. So you might want to go check it out quick!

Snack-sized review
Fantastic D24 Durian Snow Ice dessert that tastes like eating chilled durian flesh. Not on their permanent main menu so go check it out quick in case they stop offering it. Also, DO NOT WATCH MORTAL INSTRUMENTS!

Price: RM9.90 nett for a heavenly dessert fit for kings.

Outlets: There are several Sweet Hut outlets around Malaysia. Get the full list from their Facebook page.
