Mad Hatter Desserts @ Damansara Uptown

Don't be late, for this very important dessert date: This new wonderland of eat-me treats by hat-sporting MasterChef Asia standout Marcus Low in Damansara Uptown will have customers grinning like a Cheshire Cat - perfect for a mad tea party.

The rabbit hole leads to a series of playful plated indulgences - Bubur Cha Cha reimagines the classic Malaysian childhood favourite, hatching fresh textures from familiar flavours, crowned with coconut ice cream infused with sweet potato & yam, layered with pumpkin brulee, coconut pearls & a sweet-potato-&-yam cake for a triumph of taste & technique (RM23). Chocolate Delice is swoon-worthy in its sheer sumptuousness, centred on a slab-shaped ganache of French Cacao Berry 'Ocoa' 70 percent dark chocolate, completed with buttermilk ice cream, zesty milk kefir gel made with cultured cream, & a crumbly soil of chocolate shortbread & caramelised waffle bits, for a pleasurable interplay of the smooth & the gritty (RM25).

The Queen of Hearts would be pleased with these vibrant-hued tarts that take a tangy twist, the first constructed with passion fruit & miso ganache, passion fruit jelly & miso panna cotta spiked with taucu sauce for a simultaneous hit of the sugary & savoury (RM15), the second with pressed watermelon, assam boi curd, assam-soaked sponge cake & a mint veil (RM15).

Chocolate ranks prominently among Mad Hatter's flagship offerings - Chocolate Calamansi wraps a core of calamansi curd with the salted praline crunch of hazelnut feuilletine in a sensuous dome of dark chocolate mousse (RM17). Complement the meal with hot chocolate that's made extra-rich with the Ocoa blend, which Mad Hatter also relies on to prepare its brownies.

  2. Oh, I remember Marcus from his Masterchef Asia days (I see you've captured him in person too). That modern bubur cha cha was a dish he created and showcased in the show. Oh my, his desserts are very unique and creative...but also very expensive-lah (and smallish)...kekeke! :D Although I'm really curious as to how they taste. I wish you've gotten a shot of his dessert counter to entice us with all his pretty desserts :)

  3. I thought I'd recognise the logo from the pop up he did in Atria, although at that time I didn't know it was Marcus :P

    Saw the shopfront the last couple of weeks and was wondering whether it's open for business or not...
