A Bite of Happiness

I'm back in JB (Johor Bahru) for few days again, to meet my love one. Refresh moment; Me and my bf are long distance couple so we seldom have chance to meet, we only meet once a month or maybe two months once. Going there meeting him is really the happiest days of my life, is like we eating our favorite dessert together.

I always nag my bf to bring me for dessert whenever we are together, because I'm a glutton Taurus I eat everything and I always said "respect your foods" and his a super sweet-tooth lover whatever taste sweet he will put into his mouth.

So I search online see what nice dessert to eat and I found em, yes it is em! "by grace" the dessert bar and private dining.

Most of you might know by grace especially Johorian and sorry to people out of Johor this is so not for you unless you gonna be there and this is a must try place for you. For me I will purposely go there just for them I went there three time and I will continue going there be their dessert fan! I shall learn not to type so wordy and go into main point;

Their shop with a bright neon purple lighting sign board, easy to spot their shop especially at night. 

They have two sitting area the air-conditional one or non smoking area and the smoking area which is outside.

In their shop you will saw many teddy bear and cute rabbit deco, this was taken on my first visit while que/waiting for our table. Yes, you may have to wait for table it is really crowded at night.

I like their interior, really comfy and warm. Their ceiling light bulb was wrapped by the eggs beater. You can choose to sit on the sofa table or normal table or the long chaired table bar. but if it is full you will not gonna be choosy.

Guess what we order on our first visit!? We were planning to eat dessert platter which it is 4 kind of dessert in a big transparent platter but we worry it is too big for two. So we didn't get to try it and it was our first time there have no idea which and which to choose so we asked for a recommend. Their menu is simple and not too much for you to choose I'm comfortable with their menu because I have really hard time to choose thing, I'm a idiot in choosing stuff =___="

While waiting, my handsome man. Even you guys don't think he is handsome idc, he still the most handsome man other than my daddy!! hahaha

Taadaaaaaa~~~ Here come our order!! My Acai & Goci berry iced tea in bottle (Rm7)

If you like it to be sweet put in some sugar syrup. It can be drink with or without the sugar both taste nice. fyi Acai and Goji berry are both healthy berries.

Bfy hot Cappuccino (RM6.50)

Im not a caffeine person so idk it is good or not, but bfy say not bad so I think should be nice. Bfy is a very picky on foods so if he said nice mean it is really nice. fyi the big bottle is brown sugar.

The main character is here; DESSERT of the night, one of Grace Signature "Grace Surprise" (RM17.70).

I not sure their "Grace Surprise" is changing occasionally or it will be the same 365 days. but this is our "Grace Surprise" that night. Sorry first, because I really forgotten what gelato it is but it really a unforgettable dessert. The rosy semi-transparent jelly is Rose flavor if I'm not mistake. The cake is spongy, I really like cream especially those isn't overly sweet one, yeah I even ate those cream. We almost swallow the rose petal too. hahahah! *lame joke*

But it haven reach us with the surprising feel,the taste is good for me it wasn't really sweet and the look is nice and idk where to dig in first.

My paleface! and my irresistible bfy

Finish in few second!!

Bill that night, cost us rm34+ included 10% service changer. This is a #throwback, our first visit is on 10 August 2013.

Our third visit was on the pass Monday, the second visit was on Sunday night but doesn't make it so we go again on Monday. You will know why Sunday we doesn't make it, continue reading and you will know it.

The menu for recent, they changed it but not much changes only few minus and add on the choice. Prices still the same for em dessert, even the choice on "dessert platter" had changed. I always wanted to try their "Dessert platter" but can't because she say don't know what sold out!!!! *sob* Again I can't try it, but she said she can make it into platter for us but it wont be the RM47 platter price it will be counted as the original price for each dessert we choose.

And their "Strawberry Napoleon" is one of the dessert i wanna try too but no more can be found in their menu! *double sadness* Why don't you wait me!!

Another guessing start now; guess what we ordered!? *smile*

The drink come first, this time we ordered one drink because I never can finished my drink so bfy is used to not ordering any drink if I ordered drink or if he buy drink I will not buying any, we shared our drink all the time. This is not "Acai & Goji Berry", this time is "Very Very Berry" I forgot what berries it is, the waitress speaks a little too fast for me to catch what she actually said. hahahha! *yeah I'm a slowpoke*

I just picked this because the cute name. It is not sweet so same you need to add in sugar syrup for a sweeter taste. Very very berry really NICE I think it is nicer than Acai & Goji berry. *thumb up*

Very Very Berry (RM7)

Here come our first dessert; "Green Tea Explosion" (RM15.70).

It is Green tea lava cake & Yogurt gelato. I must say green tea is me and bfy all time flavor!!! and this is a BOOM to us. The green tea lava gave us big surprise the taste is really really really nice and the yogurt gelato are slightly soury sweet really nice, if you eat it together with the lava you will get another taste.

I shall say they are perfectly match!!


This is what happen to the Green tea explosion after 5mins or maybe lesser. Forgot to mention, for those Explosion dessert you need to wait for 15mins to be serve. Good thing have to wait and the 15mins is worth to wait, I promise. The photo proof everything, we almost licked the plate too. LOL

The second dessert; "Organic Soya Explosion" (RM15.70)

Sakura lava & Sea salt gelato, hmmm~ I think green tea are nicer. I was a bit attracted to the gelato more, it is really taste salty not sweet. The waitress reminded us to eat both together and yes the mild sweetness of the lava matched up with the salty gelato really nice. After I tried I think it is not as bad as I think.

The gelato is recommended. <3

The Sakura lava is not as juicy as the green tea one, probably it is over cooked and dried up the lava a bit? but the taste will still be the same.

Same thing happen to the Organic Soya Explosion, vanish 5mins later and almost got licked plate! This is bfy stupid look!!! Complaining not enough dessert for him, so after thinking so much we ordered another dessert to stop our craving.

The last dessert; "Rocher" (RM16.70)

Roasted hazelnut & almond (Rocher) with Bitter dark chocolate gelato. Full choc dessert, this hit my bfy taste-bud. His flavor sweet chocolate. The bitter dark chocolate gelato can really compete with Haagen-dazs chocolate ice cream! The strong cocoa taste really WOW, if you love chocolate then this is a must for you. As for me I not really fond of it not a cocoa lover but the Rocher is really nice, the taste and texture are hard to describe but definitely a yummiest thing I had ever tried before. 

But was wondering what was it, jelly, pudding or something else. It is bouncy yet melted once you put into your mouth.

Nothing left on the plate, we cleaned the plate as usual! hahahaha

The dripped stain on table cloth my bfy made! Over glutton, bfy scare I might finished it so keep on fight to dead for it and mess the table cloth. That night cost us RM60+, we share the bill. I said I will treat bfy but he insist to split the bill with me. *LOVE DIE HIM*

The bar table and of course the Chef of by grace, Gio his name if Im not mistaken. *Hope I didn't gave out wrong info*

Clean dessert kitchen/bar. A cooking man is the most attractive man on earth! His wife must be the luckiest woman to have a good cook husband.

Everything end here; no more dessert photo or review. Friendly reminder don't bring your own cake because you will be charge for RM30 and all item subject to 10% service charge.

One more think, you will realize most of their prices have number 7. Number 7 should be the boss lucky number or a meaningful number for them.

Forgot to mention they have late brunch on their menu, we were too full to try those but it look nice to me! I saw something like "Bacon Gelato" hopefully I can go for another 4th 5th 678910 visit to try it, please wait for me before changing the menu. *fingers-crossing*

Environment; 8/10 (too dark, kinda hard for me to take a good photo! hahaha)
Foods & beverages; 9/10 (clear our dessert-crave)
Price; 8/10 (the price can have a filling meal)
