11 Ho-Ho-Holiday Treats In The Klang Valley You Need To Try This Festive Season

IT'S BEGINNING TO LOOK A LOT LIKE CHRISTMAS!

1. Virgin Mulled Wine shaved ice @ Kakigori

While chocolate mint is a hot favourite every Christmas season, but it's this virgin mulled wine dessert that deserves the mention!

Inspired by its warm, spicy namesake, this non-alcoholic version makes a return from last year. Its citrusy and spicy aroma is sweetened with blackcurrant, perfectly paired with fluffy vanilla bean espuma that keeps the flavours balanced. An adorable gingerbread Rudolph and edible gold glitter tops the treat!
