10 Taro Balls Desserts In KL Are Calling For You
1. Snowflake Taiwanese Dessert Secrets
The oh-so-popular Taiwanese dessert place – we wouldn’t dare exclude this from the list. It is often said that if you’ve been to Jiu Fen in Taiwan, Snowflake is the closest rendition when it comes to delicious taro balls. We recommend the Double Black Jelly which seems to be the bestseller here. Grass jelly boiled for 8 hours served with taro balls which are cooked to perfection – they are definitely bursting with flavour and great for sharing.

Your perfect weekend therapy is here! Formerly known as Meet Fresh, they have plenty of flavoured shaved ice that you can choose from which includes soya, grass jelly and matcha among others.
