(Review) Ultra Violet Dessert Party at Caffé Bene 1U

Hello lovelies, if you have been following my IG stories, you would have seen a purple dessert tea party 2 weeks ago highlighting the seasonal menu of Caffé Bene, the Purple Sweet Potato series!

Everyone who attended, including me, was super duper excited as we embrace the 2018 pantone color both with out attire and food!

I rushed and just grabbed this purple dress from Cotton On 2 days before the event XD

My hubby for the first time in awhile complimented my attire saying I look Japanese ^^

But........ I was wondering if I would dare to eat it as I have never really fancied or eat purple sweet potatoes in my life! XD

Indeed, the appearance encouraged me to take a bite from every dish & beverages in the series.
ALL of them looks so pretty and definitely instagram-able!

I ,too, like many of you, did not imagine that food in purple will look so good! ^^

By the way, this Caffé Bene exterior looks different right? I love how there is more natural lighting for perfect selfies and pictures! Also a perfect place to hang out with friends and work if you do not have internet yet (plenty of plug points!) XD

This is the outlet at 1 Utama Shopping Centre (Old Wing, facing open air carpark)

I like how we can get our order quickly ^^
I am actually greeted with this scene before going up! ^^

Awesome Butterflies (from L- R): Anis, Syahira (Althea Kr trainee; she so cute!), Sydney

Miriam and Sydney briefing us the all new Ultra Violet series by Caffé Bene

It was a cozy session in getting to know the new series by Caffé Bene.
We were also (forced) to ask a question each. XD
I love that Tammy mamasan made us do this as we actually get more info and ideas from other butterflies. ^^

Look at all of them! So much purple hues in a picture! I love purple as it gives me a sense of calmness, creativity and just mysterious and happy feels (depending on which purple it is!) 

A mandatory selfie with butterfly Choy Peng. Love her vibrant hair!

Twin for a day with butterfly Anis!

Purple Sweet Potato Series consists of:

Ultra Violet Sweet Potato Bingsu RM29.90
Ultra Violet Sweet Cream Waffle RM18.90
Ultra Violet Sweet Potato Latte (H/C) RM14.90
Ultra Violet Sweet Potato Frappeno RM16.90

Who caught my heart?
*drum rolls*

Its the Ultra Violet Sweet Cream Waffle!

It may look small but I think its quite a filling snack with your beverage for a quick tea time ^^

What I love about the waffle is when the hot & crunchy waffle meets the cooling purple sweet potato ice cream with the purple sweet potato paste in between. This made me eat one scoop after another.

Second place goes to Ultra Violet Sweet Potato Bingsu!

Look how huge the bingsu is!! Pic credits to CJ

Bingsu has an interesting mix of taste and texture that makes me feel healthy eating it. It has granola, purple sweet potato paste, jelly, nuts etc... Love the various textures in one scoop! First time officially eating a bingsu from Caffé Bene and I am lovin' this!

For you who loves frappeno then this is for you!
Love the purple sweet potato powder on top of the cream.

I am more of a latte girl. You can have it hot or cold but I prefer hot drinks for better digestion and it definitely taste healthy and aromatic. Also, it is non-caffiene!
Best to drink whilst its still warm or it'll taste slightly less aromatic (in my opinion).

I personally think that this hot latte is a healthier choice as I can see the fibre sediments (maybe?) of the sweet potato at the bottom of the mug.

All of the food and drink are majorly made of purple sweet potato paste (as it represents a staple food in Korea) and is surprisingly well received by the public in Malaysia!

Are you eating your bingsu the right way?
Lemme share with you the bene-way of eating their bingsu.
Firstly, DO NOT eat by layer!

1- snap a pic or 2 or 3.. XD
2- press the ice cream down
3- mix the ice cream, toppings with the shaved ice at the bottom!
4- eat!

It may be messy but you can see it in my Instagram @beeleec.
Forgot to take a picture coz I am just waiting to eat  =>  super YUMMY!

Final verdict:
Go try as this is a seasonal menu (till April 2018)!
It is ONLY available in Malaysia!
I personally never consume purple sweet potato but I LOVE LOVE IT NOW, thank you Caffé Bene for coming out with this series!

A final pic with my lover of the day! ^^
