Ever since I tried out Dessert Story in Adelaide, I’m sort of craving for it from time to time.
Finally, there’s something like this in Kuching, ZenQ Desserts @ Premier 101. When I was still in Adelaide, I saw people posting about this dessert place in Kuching. Now that I’m back for good, I do crave for it. Finally got the chance to try it out few weeks back, when the day was extremely hot and hazy.
PACKED! Lucky for us to be able to secure a table. We took turn to order.
Left: ZenQ My Signature (RM7.50), price wise is reasonable with the portion. You can choose the base, either green tea, soy milk, or grass jelly.
Right: I ordered Taro Grass Jelly with Green Tea Base (RM7.50). They only left green tea Q Yuan (literally translate Q Yuan as chewy ball) that time. Too many people, quite a number of ingredients ran out. The black thing is the pearl which you can find in bubble milk tea while the transparent noodle looking thing is crystal noodle. Of course not to forget the grass jelly in there. Was given with a small container of milk to add into the dessert. I added it in and it managed to give the base a much creamier and rich flavour.
The ice dessert wasn’t too sweet, just nice for me. It was good but felt like there’s something missing. No idea what… Maybe I’m comparing it to what I had in Adelaide and also the environment. Still, it’s good enough to fix my craving and I will definitely go back, only a bit far from my place hahaha… Just eating this is enough to settle my one meal. Full! Back then in Adelaide, I sometimes just ate this for dinner.
ZenQ is a franchise which you can find in many countries. Good that they have one in Kuching. I like Taiwanese ice dessert.

It’s good that you’ve found a place for dessert just like in Adelaide.
The dessert may be affordable but nowadays, we hardly find food under rm2.00.
And it surprised me that this business is franchised and is operating internationally.
Have a nice day yeah.
yeah, great place to go when the weather is hot, next time we go again to try other choice.
willie, it’s common just that it’s rather new in Kuching, so far I guess this is the only one. Even that time Adelaide also, it was the only one there, always packed! Especially in summer and that was franchise from Melbourne.
yonglim, yes… maybe during the coming long weekend.
Yeah, I know what you mean by the price, I ate something similar near my house (mango) and it was RM 24!! I would have expected that for durian, but nowadays the dessert shops are about Starbucks price for the premium ones and 1/2 for the regular ones.
I still love it once in a while though especially since it’s so hot nowadays….
Huai Bin, wow! RM24! Very expensive! I guess it should be very big in portion. It’s great on a hot day.
Hello Irene, I’m not familiar with this dessert, maybe there are where I am, but I guess I’m not much of this sweet stuff fan.
But it does look good. And the price can lighten a wallet too, ha ha.
Anyway, nice place when having a date.
You have fun and keep a song in your heart.
Ha Ha…. luxury !!
All these ” perceived” fancy places can jack up their prices very easily. If one is making the 1st world’s salary or sending parents’ $$ then it is quite affordable.
Lee, I’m not that into sweet stuff too but these aren’t that sweet, so it’s quite ok for me. In fact, even ice kacang nowadays will cost quite a fair bit also and about half the portion of this and more ice with less ingredients. Everything increases.
Gou, hahaha… The price for a meal. It’s really filling though due to all the starch. Once in awhile is ok, not everyday. You’ll get diabetes! 😛
Irene, after all the sweets and starch…they should sell insulin too.
Gou, guess it will apply to all the coffee and bubble tea chains too! Hahaha… Lots of them growing like mushroom in Kuching.
They have it in Kuching? Hmm, must try it when back to Kuching.
Rose, yes, in Kuching. Try it out.
It’s not a very big portion! It’s just mangos in a bowl, but to be fair there is about 1/2 a mango worth of fruit in that bowl.
The other ones are not so expensive. Ahhh I’m craving an iced dessert now even though it’s 6 am in the morning!
Huai Bin, wow… Quite expensive but oh well…. Once awhile no harm.
