Justberrys calls itself a premium dessert house and that’s a fitting description based on our experience. Personally, I feel Justberrys is among the best dessert cafes in Melaka.
It’s worth checking out if you are looking for something different to try while visiting the state. I would even go as far as to say they are better than most dessert places in KL, both in terms of quality and presentation.
The Bitter Durian @ RM25 is one of the most memorable durian desserts I have tried. Almost every component that makes up the dessert is durian oriented, such as real durian pulp (usually D24), creamy durian paste and durian flavored ice cream. If you are a durian lover, this is not to be missed.
For those who can’t stand durian and looking for something more conventional, the Choco Lava Rich @ RM23 would be a good bet.
It’s basically a chocolate flavored bingsu topped with chocolate chips, chocolate ice cream and crushed peanuts. The chocolate flavor is quite rich, but not to the point that you will feel ‘jelak’. Portion wise it’s definitely large enough to be shared with another friend.
Justberrys also has a series of tropical fruit desserts which includes watermelon, winter melon, dragon fruit and honeydew melon. We picked the Dragon Fruit Kona Tropican @ RM22 for its uniqueness, as we have not seen dragon fruit being used as such before. The dragon fruit they gave was of high quality and big in size, it had plenty of flesh and tasted naturally sweet too.
Happy with everything we had thus far, we also ordered the Cendol Durian @ RM18 to try. It was alright and did not impress us as much as the earlier desserts, mainly due to the fact that they used coconut cream instead of fresh coconut milk. So it lacked that distinctive aroma which is crucial in enhancing the flavor. The durian puree on top was great though.
FYI Justberrys has two branches in Melaka: Taman Kota Laksamana and Ayer Keroh. The latter (which we went) is a franchisee owned and operated by Muslims. I don’t think they are halal certified, but at least you will have better peace of mind when eating at the Ayer Keroh branch.
