[Food Review] Dao Kia Desserts

Irresistibly silky smooth, delicate, melt-in-your-mouth soya puddings are now available in Malaysia! Dao Kia (豆仔) was founded a year ago and opened up its first store at The Strand, Kota Damansara. According to the owner, he discovered this delicacy in Singapore and then he started to do research and study on how to make a bowl of smooth yet flavourful soy pudding. Since then, his family call him as dao kia as he was staying at the kitchen all day long just to figure out the secret recipe for a delicious soy pudding. That's how the shop name come from :)

Apart from their bestseller signature silky soy pudding, they now have silky soy milk, smoothie, buns and even glutinous rice ball in store! And little did you know that all of their desserts are protein rich and made up of natural ingredients? :)

Well, I gotta praise for their effort of decorating and preparing some props for customers to take pictures despite the small area of their store.

We have ordered 3 bowl of soy puddings - original soy, creamy almond and Japanese green tea flavour upon arrival.

If I were to use one word to describe their soy puddings, it would be SMOOTH. As the name suggests, the texture is very light and silky smooth. Slurrpppp and it's inside your stomach! For a moment I thought that I have fallen into the heaven of soy ngawww.. Besides, we did enjoy the Japanese green tea flavour very much especially my boyfriend, he just can't stop feeding himself with the green tea pudding. It just had the right amount of matcha taste and it may lure you to eat it again and again.

While for the creamy almond and coconut bliss, we would only recommend if you love the taste of almond (it just tastes the same like almond paste) and coconut.

Their glutinous rice ball comes with 3 different filing - red bean, peanut and black sesame. 

The best part of the glutinous rice ball is it's very chewy yet flavourful. It's not too hard or too soft, not sticky and most importantly the filing won't leak. Thumbs up for this (Y)

Besides, we have ordered a silky soy milk in original flavour to moisture our throat. It's not too sweet and tastes just nice since it is made up of natural ingredients. In fact soy milk is very nutritive, less saturated fat and cholesterol than cow's milk and good for people who are lactose intolerant. You may just grab a cup of silky soy milk in the midst of shopping in 1 Utama or Tropicana City Mall :)

Steamed bun - fragrant lotus

Biting into these piping hot soft bun with just the right amount of lotus paste oozing out was pure bliss! I love the soft texture of the skin on these buns and you can substitute the filing with azuki red bean and pandan kaya.

An incredible leap in soy-based desserts, Dao Kia is truly like none other. To ensure the best and freshest in every bowl, their silky soy puddings are made fresh daily. Their desserts are completely pork free and in the process of being Halal certified. I will go back for more soy puddings and glutinous rice ball for sure! So how about you? Head down to the nearest branch and get yourself a bowl of happiness :)
