Since the beginning of this year, there’s a new Japanese dessert shop opened at Gandaria City, Tai-Parfait.
Tai-Parfait stands for Taiyaki and Parfait. Most of you might already know that Taiyaki is a traditional Japanese fish-shaped pancake and here at Tai-Parfait they combine the taiyaki with various ice cream parfait toppings.
If you order Taiyaki itself without any additional toppings cost IDR 16k per piece with 4 different selection of filling Chocolate, Matcha, Azuki and Custard cream. But of course the most interesting aspect from Tai-Parfait is the cute appearance and kawaii combination with the toppings rite, that’s why AnakJajan didn’t order any Taiyaki without toppings.
The toppings selections are plentiful with various ice cream, sweet cream and fruits. FYI, they use Haagen-Dazs ice cream here.
Tai-Parfait Matcha & Azuki with Matcha Ice Cream IDR 43k
This variant comes with ice cream, Matcha sweet cream and Azuki or red bean toppings. You can request any filling for your taiyaki, AnakJajan chose Matcha cream. The matcha cream was tasty, it was smooth, delicate and not too sweet.
Taiyaki dough was interesting and has a very nice aroma. It didn’t taste similar with any taiyaki AnakJajan ever had, this one was chewy but in a good way while crunchy on the outside and also not overly sweet.
One thing that really bothers me is the messiness while eating it, they only serve it with one small thin paper cup. It gets very messy when you bite it and the filling cream burst out.
Tai-Parfait Strawberry Caramel IDR 43k
There are two option of ice cream for this variant, with Original Ice Cream IDR 33k or IDR 43k with Soft Serve Ice Cream
custard cream. AnakJajan chose soft serve ice cream, the soft serve was super milky yet very light and AnakJajan enjoyed it a lot. While for the filling we had custard cream, it was okay, we prefer the matcha cream more than this one.
Overall Tai-Parfait offers a new and unique type of snack/ dessert, the taste was good but a lil bit too small for the price imho. Let’s Jajan!!
