Didn’t plan to visit Monki Cafe initially, but found our hungry souls drifting here for food after being rather peeved by the bad crowd management from a new cafe in a nearby neighbourhood.

One thing I have found Monki Cafe to have done quite well in is their snowflake desserts — the Watermelon Snowflake being the item I had tried when they had just opened their doors for not too long, and was something that I am still able to recall its flavour and textures even to this day several years after. The Chocolate x Whiskey Snowflake is probably something less delicate and more poised at the mass market, especially given how the milky, chocolate shaved ice felt more chocolate ice-cream than being light and fluffy like how ice should be, but I liked how they have included the dried raspberries for an extra chew and a slight tang of sourness to cut through that heaviness of the “shaved ice”. The true show-stopper here was the shot of whiskey — something bound to attract the degenerate drunks who will love a boozy dessert, not to mention its price tag at $10.80 for an alcoholic dessert that puts it at the same price of the Strawberry Snowflake here that is definitely more kids-friendly.

Monki Cafe is one of the spots with hits and misses; an establishment that serves rather homey Taiwanese fare in the West that does well enough to solve those cravings especially in times like these when travel isn’t much of a thing we can do. No doubt the offerings may still feel as though they are short of something especially when compared to more established names such as Eat 3 Bowls, but Monki Cafe is a deserving indie alternative that offers quite a good variety of items not commonly found (i.e. Taiwanese Plain Eggroll, Taiwanese Hotdog) that is worth checking out purely on the fact alone.

This cosy Taiwanese cafe has a wide selection of mains and desserts! Was full from lunch so we just got drinks. The black sesame latte was light and felt quite healthy. The coffee for the latte was also pretty good. Paid around $4 for the drink and there’s an additional 10% student discount!

It’s pretty cosy and quiet, so I’ll probably be back to try the snow shaved ice desserts and mains.

Mango snowflake dessert (~$6.80, S) 🍧🍨 had a really strong mango taste! Expected it to be more icey rather than creamy but it had more of a ice cream texture 😂 Nonetheless the ice shavings were consistent texture and taste wise, and it was a nice treat amongst the crazy heat 🤩
