Grossly Misrepresented! @ Tong Pak Fu, Suria KLCC

(I was going to title this post “False Advertising”, but that sounded too serious…)

It was a bloody hot arvo extrapolated by  a faulty air-con blowing 32 degree celsius wind  in my face.

Made worse, I can hear annoying jerky voices in my head screaming, “Shaved ice, Shaved ice, I want ’em now!”  To pacify my inner demons, I headed over to Tong Pak Fu (not to be confused with Stephen Chow’s movie with the same namesake).  Although I know that Tong Pak Fu is a Hong Kong franchise, I had never bothered to visit its HQ in HK.

See this?  This picture on the menu of Tracka Durian Shaved Ice got my attention and I ordered a regular (RM11.90)

HANG ON!!

What arrived at my table was this… Notice anything different from the photo menu?

Tracka Durian Shaved Ice

Hmmm…something’s amiss.

Where are my Corn flakes?!

Why are the accompaniments are different too?!

I got a weird combo of spherified lychee bubbles, black, red and yellow grass-jellies which I left untouched.

STILL, the durian shaved ice was a velvety delight.  Smooth and creamy, which I no doubt will come back for more  (giving the condiments a miss).

Let me present you with the menu… if you are not inclined to durians, there are guava, orange and mango shaved ice flavours too.

  1. I think the major difference was the absence of the corn-flakes and the color of the lychee bubbles. The one in the ad actually looked pretty similar to the one they brought to you (composition-wise). It was all camera trick. They just managed to make it looked sooo much prettier! LOL (I, too, will look handsome if you take my photos in a studio with the right lighting and make-ups).😀
    Anyway, the name does remind people of the famous scholar, doesn’t it?

    • Absolutely Hari, that’s why people don’t like showing their driver’s licenses – or me especially, I looked like a rabbit caught in the headlights!
      Ya, Tong Pak Fu reminded me of the movie, at first I thought it was the actor spinning off into dessert franchise! Also, he’s doing very well in properties in HK, now, so that is why we are seeing less of his movies.
