I believe many have heard of Namoo on the Park (full name would be Namoo Korean Dessert Cafe and Bistro on the Park), the first ever Korean Dessert Cafe in Malaysia, along with its famous Rice Burger.

Unfortunately, we are not here for that. Cake of the Day (White Chocolate Marshmallow Cake) RM9.90
This is what my mischievous friends would described as the cake that goes to gym with super hard 6 packs. I should have added the word, "with no sweat".
Seriously hard and dry, two uncommon words in describing a cake. Sweet Pumpkin Cake RM10.90
On the first impression, it looks like Kuih Ubi Kayu (translated directly as tapioca cake) to me.
It is basically mashed pumpkin puree, being mould into the form of solid cake.
And you can totally skip the part where the sugar was supposed to be added. Rather too healthy and not the type of cakes that we have all imagined. I bet it would be great as low calories cake (if it were to be marketed that way) for ladies on diet.
Both of these cakes have vanilla ice-cream on the side. Actually I wouldn't know how to name it, since it was not freezing cold and in half liquid form when it arrived on our table. Hey, it was not my photographing time that caused this. Having it together with the cake inside the mouth is like adding lubricant to smoothen it but nothing more.
We weren't satisfied with the two cakes above and decided to order one more cold dessert, hoping to have a happy ending upon leaving here. The King's Bing Soo RM16.90
Shaved Ice with Rice Cakes, Red Beans, Strawberries, Kiwis, Bananas, Peanuts and Ice-cream Sprinkled with Multi-grain Powder
What's with the melted ice-cream? I just couldn't comprehend it.
The ratio of toppings and green tea shaved ice just doesn't tally: By the time we finished all the toppings, still lots of shaved ice left in the bowl. And again, this has no sign of sugar appearance.
Despite the very relaxing ambiance for a cup of coffee or a slice of cake while chilling out with friends, the cakes were not up to my expectation, or perhaps, it is just the Korean cake culture that this side of me could not comprehend. Shall go for the famous Rice Burger on next round and leave the cakes or any dessert with melted ice-cream behind.
