Halal & vegetarian !!! Clockwise: Intense Wheatgrass Jujube Splendor, RM17.20/pc, Ballad of the moon, RM17.20/pc and Lunar Delight, RM17.50/pc.

Lunar Delight, RM17.50/pc. It is white coffee (Made from real coffee bean) with pure durian paste. When you cut it, strong durian aroma like durian kuih but when you taste the whole combination it is another story. Bitterness from the coffee cover most of the durian taste when you bite in, durian come after taste. The whole combination was perfectly balance. Highly recommended
