vsco-photo-2-3.jpgThe Dessert Kitchen is one of the newest dessert stop in Manila. It was first introduced in the Philippines last February, 2016. This is located on the 3rd floor of Power Plant Mall at Rockwell. The Dessert Kitchen is a franchise from Hong Kong by the group behind Lugang Cafe and TuanTuan Chinese Brasserie and it has 20 branches worldwide.

The Dessert Kitchen produces innovative and healthy desserts based on the “light dessert” with ingredients like matcha, fresh fruits, seaweed balls, and kanten, they are introducing sweet treats that are both delicious and tasty, but having no added additives, low in fat and sugar.

Desserts we tried:

…Ooops, not just those! There’s more! 🙂

Purple In Love (P258)

The Dessert Kitchen’s bestselling dessert is a their award-winning ‘Purple in Love’, made with Kyoho grape seaweed balls, grape shaved ice, mini rice balls, grapes, and taro mochi ice cream. One serving could be shared by 2-3 people. At first, it tasted like a grape juice but eventually, I found it too sweet after a few spoonful.

Kanten with Mixed Fresh Fruits and Kyoho Grape Sauce (P198)

in Kanten with Mixed Fresh Fruitsyou have 5 choices for the sauce option. I had to order the Kyoho Grape Sauce because according to them, it is one of their best seller desserts. This has a cup of kanten noodles. You have to mix the kanten or with the grape sauce and fresh ball-shaped mixed fruits. The kanten is slippery to eat when using your utensils.

Sakura Warabi (P168)

Sakura Warabi is also known as the “Raindrop Cake”. It is lightest, flawless and fat-free dessert you can think of! Sakura warabi kanten, sakura rice balls, brown sugar paste, red beans and soy bean powder are all pinned together for this “grammable dessert”.

Trust me, you’d want to try this dessert as well!

Ice Stream Ramen (P228)

The noodles are kanten (traditional Japanese jelly noodle that’s made from algae). The Dessert Kitchen has several flavors available, including peach, green tea milk, kyoho, honey, and brown sugar. The noodles sit in a bath of condensed milk and crushed ice. Additional toppings include mochi, cantaloupe, mango, and a side of white peach syrup.I suggest that you pour all the syrup into the Ramen for you to fully taste the flavor you’ve chosen.

The Ambiance:

The restaurant is spacious. It has a bright, fresh colorful interiors, with its open kitchen, wire lanterns, and murals.


The kitchen is exposed as its main attraction, where the process is transparently seen by the consumers.

Overall experience: 

The Dessert Kitchen offers a wide array of Instagram worthy foods by offering desserts that use high-quality and healthy ingredients. I loved how they presented the desserts. For me, it is a perfect hangout place for couple, family and friends.
The Dessert Kitchen is the ultimate dessert destination in Rockwell. It’s so nice to have a one-stop-shop of your favorite desserts all in one place.
I would definitely come back to try their other desserts!


YES!!! The Dessert Kitchen is highly recommended for health conscious people but also want to satisfy their sweet cravings (like me!). I had an amazing time at The Dessert Kitchen. Since the desserts are made healthier, I didn’t have that heavy feeling after trying out a lot of desserts.


Note:They will open another branch in S Maison, Conrad Manila soon. WAIT FOR IT! 🙂
