Verdict: Surprisingly not too shabby. Among all the other new local try-hard Taiwanese desserts & beverages with snacks outlets that I’ve been to, Pick-Me-Up offers the most number of decent and reasonably priced varieties on menu. Although the cliches cannot match the likes of the big names (e.g; Snowflake & Chatime), the other rather more foreign desserts and snacks they serve suit my taste buds. The only stuffs they lack of are beverage choices.
Favourite: Chilli Chic Cheesy Fries (presumably RM8.00) – Not on the official menu but it’s just absolutely delicious and definitely addictive. And the catalyst of this great dish of snack is not even the fries.
Least favourite: Tower Shaved Ice (RM12.90) – A tall-ass three-layered ice, blended with blueberry, mango and strawberry respectively that comes with Nata De Coco, Pearls, Vanilla Ice Cream and Taro Balls – utterly pointless. Even if I was sharing it with two hot chicks, I’d still won’t find it enjoyable. Difficult to scoop, the ice blended fruits tasted cheap, the toppings are there just because they’re popular, and eating it makes one hell of a mess on the table. Thankfully for them, the new tower of cendol is not on the menu yet. I wouldn’t even want it if the price is for both of them.
Most unusual: Fruit Ice Cream Burritos (RM4.50) – Not fantastic but it’s the first time I’ve ever tried such a fusion snack.
