After dinner in Kota Damansara, why not some Kakigori and waffle for dessert? For us, after dinner at Soru Station, we headed over to MyKori Dessert Cafe Kota Damansara (Dataran Sunway).
According to their website and as of today’s post, there are 88 MyKori Dessert Cafes in Malaysia.
How to get there
Anyway, back to MyKori Dessert Cafe Kota Damansara, if you’re driving and looking for parking, be prepared to go round looking for it. Like any other commercial district like SS2, Damansara Uptown – Kota Damansara is also notoriously known for lack of parking space.
Alternatively, if you’re taking the MRT, stop at the Surian MRT and walk 900 meters North from the station. It is about a 12 minutes walk from the MRT station.
MyKori Kota Damansara
The Kota Damansara branch of MyKori Dessert Cafe is on the first floor of a shop lot. As it’s not on the ground floor, you might miss it if you walk or drive by. The cafe is long, spacious, and brightly lit. So, even if you’re in a group of 8 or more people, there is enough space, comfortably for everybody.
From their Signature Kakigori selection, we had the Mango Cheesecake Kakigori, Chocolate Tiramisu Kakigori, and Cookies & Cream with OREA Kakigori. In addition to the kakigories, we also had a 3 Scoops Ice Cream Buttermilk Waffle.
MyKori’s Signature Kakigori are shaved ice desserts incorporating fresh fruits, ice cream as well as layers of flavour.

I thought MyKori meant Malaysian-Korean dessert of some sort. However, MyKori’s history tells a different story.
During his travels overseas, MyKori’s founder discovered a unique Japanese pastry, a fish shaped snack, made of croissant with varied sweet and savoury fillings such as red bean, chocolate banana and cheese. He then made the necessary arrangements, including learning hands on how it’s made, securing the signature molds and ingredients that give the Taiyaki its unique shape and flavour and launching with authentic Japanese ranges and then further expanding them to suit local tastes.
Not content with just pastries, he then sought to make MyKori the epitome of the 21st century Japanese dessert house, expanding to include the signature toasts and shaved ice desserts (Kakigori) that incorporate fresh fruits, ice cream as well as layers of flavour. And to not leave out those that seek healthier options, there’s also the Kenko Kakigori, a guiltless option that incorporates shaved ice, yoghurt / milk, fresh fruits as well as a variety of grains.
