Me & U Dessert @ Sunrise Tower, Gurney Drive, Penang.

When Me & U Dessert first launched in late Dec 2019, the dessert parlor caused a stir on social media… due to its non-customary serving method. The new kid on the block pushed the boundary by having the dainty desserts served on a conveyor belt. Pre-made desserts (like Cakes, Macarons etc) are served on colored plates… which determine their prices (either Rm 8 or Rm 10 per plate). Alternatively, diners can also order on the menu, in which they will be served separately. Decent place for dessert lovers but not so much for those who seek for variety.
Lovely Dutch Baby (Rm 14.90)

Strawberry Cup (Rm 9.90/ small)

Jasmine Green Tea (Rm 13/ pot)
We were not convinced with the looks of the plates on the conveyor belt so we had ours ordered from the menu. The Lovely Dutch Baby required a 30-minute wait, it was served on cast iron pan. We expected a thin, crepe-like Dutch pancake but the overall texture was not quite like that. It was a little too dry to our liking, the edges were slightly burnt and it just did not give us the satisfaction that we were looking for. Another sweet treat we had was Strawberry Cup, a pretty straight-forward dessert that had fresh Strawberries served in a cup and drizzled with condensed milk, then served with a scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream… nothing fancy but we’d love to have some swirls of fresh cream on top.
