Light Bites & Desserts at Millennium Square, PJ
Light Bites: Sweet Potato Pastry & Crab Claw Pastry (not actual name in menu)
For someone who has a perpetual sweet tooth like me, I am always on the lookout for place to satisfy my sweet tooth. Recently, I was introduced to a relatively new outlet in Millennium Square (Section 14, PJ). I do not recall seeing any signboard but if I was not mistaken, I was told the name of the shop is Recharge or Refresh. Their menu was rather simple (at time of visit). They do have some vegetarian set dishes that rotate on a daily basis. I was more taken with their snacks menu.
Another type of light snack at Recharge or Refresh (sorry, forgot exact name of the shop).
To be frank, I am not sure about the names of the dishes ordered since it was my lunch partner that day who did the ordering. As you can see, most were deep-fried snacks and to me tasted more or less the same (to me). The dish that left the most impression with me is their Sweet Potato Pastry (see pic above). Leaning more to a sweet dessert that a savoury snack and the fact that I love sweet potato (especially the purple variety), it doesn't take a genius to figure out why I liked this the most. Their Special Seafood/Crabstick with Vegetables Roll was not bad either. The rest were just average.

Finishing off with a platter of fresh cut fruits.
Opposite this outlet is a more well-known outlet, Piccadilly. This outlet serves quite a variety of both Western and local fare. On a separate occassion, my friend and I were at this outlet for lunch. Not feeling particularly hungry and also not particularly attracted to anything on their menu, we chose to share 1 light snack and 2 desserts.
Their bruschetta tasted just like "spaghetti bolognese" on a piece of toasted baguette. It wasn't awful, but far from being remarkable.
Dessert: Sour Sop on Shaved Ice
On the other hand, their Sea Coconut on shaved ice and Sour Sop on shaved ice desserts were much appetizing. Then again, it was a hot and humid day and anything cold would surely find favour with us.
