Midori, Mutiara Damansara

It was after dinner and Serena was craving for something sweet..
We didn't know where to go and ended up at Mutiara Damansara. I recalled there's Midori at Cineleisure ..
Remembering xiulongbao's post on it and since we're standing right in fornt of Midori, might as well try what they got to offer right?
There was quite a number of us, I didn't manage to take pictures of all the desserts, just took those around me..hehe
Ellery wanted to have kau (aka strong) green tea..hence he ordered Green Tea with Milk (RM7.50)out rather diluted, he said it was not bitter enough...
I had the Zenzai Green Tea Ice Cream with dumplings and red bean paste (RM9.90)The ice cream was nice; creamy and bitter tinged with the delicate fragrance of green tea. The red bean paste was rather thick and sweet..the first few bites, it tasted lovely as it balanced very well with the green tea ice cream. However, after a while, it just gets richer and richer in flavour..so rich that I had a hard time finishing this bowl of dessert. The dumplings? Bad.Very bad. So hard, if you threw it at a puppy, might just kill it.
Serena had Kakigori with Green Tea sauce, Redbean paste and Milk (RM9.90)This looks so pretty, too good to be eaten..hehe. Bottom of the bowl was shaved ice (kakigori) with jelly, dusted with green tea powder and a generous serving of red bean paste. Topped with milky soft serve and drizzled with green tea sauce, I must say that this dessert is extremely delectable. The sweetness from the red beans matched the bitter green tea powder and the no sugar (almost), very creamy, extremely milky soft serve ice cream perfectly. Very yums...
Dragon girl had Kakigori with strawberry sauce and Milk(RM10.90)
Essentially the same method of preparation as Serena's, Dragon's version was shaved ice topped with fresh strawberries, strawberry sauce and milky soft serve. The flavours tasted heavenly together, I was actually quite surprise. I was never a big fan of anything cook/ made from strawberries as I felt that it's more of an artificial flavouring rather than using the real thing. But this, I must say, was lip smacking. Serena loved the milky soft serve so much that she requested for a plain soft served. I could see that she enjoyed it very much.. The rest of my friends ordered Mitsu with fruits and kanten jelly, Mitsu with dumplings, fruits and kanten jelly, hot green tea with milk (soft serve).
I'll definitely come back again for the desserts, especially the kakigoris..
Midori also serves some basic bentos for those who wants to have more than just desserts ;)

Midori....I'll probably eat those. There were a few of those other icey desserts which were too pricey for its mini size!
