The latest trend that's making waves in the local food scene is the bungeoppang-inspired fish-shaped waffle cone filled with ice cream and other goodies, courtesy of a newly-opened dessert parlour in Subang Jaya called Cafe Aboong

A bungeoppang, or fish bun, is a Korean pastry with an Azuki red bean filling sold as a snack by open-air food vendors throughout Korea during hot summer. It is similar to the Japanese fish-shaped taiyaki.

Cafe Aboong and the prosperity fish-shaped waffle cone dessert originated from South Korea. The dessert chain has expanded to the rest of the Asian region, namely China, Japan, Hong Kong, Vietnam, and Thailand. Its first Malaysian branch, situated in SS15, Subang Jaya, opened its doors in December 2015.

Soft serve yoghurt ice cream is served in a carp-shaped waffle cone, paired with a chocolate-covered fruit skewer and topped with some chocolate drizzle, cereal bits, and/or cookie crumbs. What's more, the bottom of the cone is stuffed with a sweet filling!

Priced at RM10 for a regular-shaped cone (RM12 for a large), that's pretty worth it! Plus, you can opt for mango flavoured ice cream (additional RM1) apart from the original flavour.
