To be honest, when I heard the name Haraju Cube, I thought it was a place selling stationary or furniture. But nope. It sells desserts. Lots of them. In the shape of (you guessed it) cubes. 😉
Tucked neatly into the second floor corner of Empire Damansara, is this cheery and fun café that serves some pretty remarkable treats.
Did I mention that it was cheery? Cause it is. Bright yellow walls, comfy furniture and plenty of natural light is bound to put you in a good mood.
If that weren’t enough, Haraju Cube has complimentary fruity water to rejuvenate you from the Malaysian heat.
Me and Jac kept coming to the water station for more cause the fruity water was just so tasty! Also, it was free!
Ok, let me start off with drinks. I have to say that they were awesome.
The guava orange juice was really fresh, and not too sweet. It was everything a fruit juice could be.
To balance things out, we also had something totally different from juice. The Haraju Milk.
It was delicious! A homemade recipe, the butter milk was both creamy and light, totally addictive and not off putting.
The food was good. Jac could not put it down the Salmon Tuna Cheese Hot Dog (RM 21.90) and the Ham-Cheese Toast (RM 13.90) was lovely.
But really, you’d come to Haraju Cube for the desserts.
We had the visually epic Haruju-Bomb Honey Toast (RM 32.90).
I hadn’t seen anything like it before, it was a very unconventional way of eating toast.
First off, the idea of a toast being a dessert is already bizarre. But this bomb of a toast blew us away. Who knew pairing matcha flavoured ice cream with the delicious buttered toast was gonna be so good?
It was truly a visually stunning and scrumptious piece of edible art.
My favourite dessert though at Haraju Cube would be the glorious Cheese Tart.
Totally under-rated, this delightful piece of pastry brimming with cheese was magnificent! This was no ordinary cheese tart. The cheesy part was not solid. When you cut the pastry, the cheese oozes out onto the plate. It was like a cheesy lava cake. And the innovative combination of the pastry crumble and liquid cheese was a joy to my taste buds. Mmm mm. Yum. Party in my mouth. I don’t have to say more. Go try it!
