De' Lava The Dessert Lab

Since we’re on the subject of pastries and what not, I might as well add this post as well. A colleague of mine had casually mentioned this specialty pastry shop as we were having our lunch one day. She was raving on and on about their tarts that it piqued my interest to visit them the next day. I admit that I initially did not notice the shop (even though I went passed the road leading up to the area almost every weekend) as it was tucked away on the far corners of the Unijaya commercial area (and was overshadowed by bigger eateries within the premise).

The tiny but pretty looking store is actually a franchise of sorts originated from the Peninsular Malaysia and they specializes in producing cheese tarts. I admit that it was the first time that I’ve ever heard about them so I had no idea what to expect as I went into the store. Every single one of the tarts looked yummy inside their display cases. So after some thoughtful consideration (or whatever that looks the most appealing to me) I’d decided upon their Dreamy Durian, Pick Me Up Tiramisu and Choconutz flavours and may I say that they were just luscious. Even though the tarts might be a bit smaller in size (as compared to their other, more prominent competitions out there) the quality of the tarts were quite good, as the crust tasted buttery and solid, while the fillings were simply rich without them overdoing it. Other tarts that were also available includes the Classic and Matcha Deluxe. They did mentioned (on their official FB page) that they served other types of snacks and desserts but I’m not too sure about their Tawau branch though, as I did not see any other promotions going on during my said visit.

Other than that…

Food – 4/5 (recommended for you to try them out at least once)
Price – 3/5 (although I personally think that it’s okay but other Tawaurians might consider them to be a bit pricey)
Service – 4/5 (pretty smooth service)
D├ęcor – 4/5 (very pleasing to the eyes with the modern, blackish decor)
Location – 3/5 (they’re also very near to the Ling’s Fresh mini market)
