Travelling to Johor Bahru is always fun, but having to deal with the bustling crowds, long queues (at immigration, especially), and sweltering heat can make you constantly crave for something cold.
Located under 30 minutes away from the Johor Bahru checkpoint is TAROTARO (芋你个头), where you can get taro shaved milk ice desserts from just S$2.57 (RM8.90)! This popular dessert shop at Eco Palladium exclusively sells handmade taro desserts and prides themselves on using 100% natural ingredients without any artificial sweeteners or colours.
Their signature Taro Paste Shaved Milk Ice at S$4.02 (RM13.90) is a must-try for all taro fans. Shaved milk ice is topped with generous portions of their homemade taro paste, fresh mango and dragonfruit, oreo crush, red beans, chewy taro balls, sago pearls, peanuts, and finished with a dusting of milk powder.
Another fan favourite is the Taro Paste Oreo Shaved Milk Ice, which comes with heaping amounts of oreo biscuits and other toppings like sago, taro balls and more. Think an Oreo McFlurry but with double the amount of Oreo, paired with luscious creamy taro paste, all for the low, low price of S$2.86 (RM9.90).
TAROTARO also offers something you can’t get in Singapore — Purple Rice Taro Paste Cheese Blocks at S$2.28 (RM7.90). A special version with Oreo is also available at S$2.57 (RM8.90). Looks like the owner of this shop is a major Oreo-fanatic!
Surely you wouldn’t pass up the chance to get boba too? The Taro Paste Fresh Milk with Boba (S$2.89, RM10) is an unbeatable combo of thick rich taro paste with fragrant milk that will send you straight to taro heaven. Of course, if you are looking just to enjoy the milk and taro, they offer a non-boba version for S$2.60 (RM9).
And that’s not all, because who would say no to more boba? Their new range of Mango Popping Boba Sago Milkshake might be the better choice for quenching your thirst while enjoying the sensation of juicy pearls bursting with every bite. To better beat the heat, the shop is also offering Mango Sago Shaved Milk Ice for just S$3.76 (RM13).
Their mango desserts may not be the signature, but you can be assured that the refreshing taste of mango will not lose to their signature taro.
Now you know where to bring your loved ones to enjoy creamy taro (and mango) delights on your next foodie trip to JB!
P.S. To dairy lovers: be sure to get there early because TAROTARO’s taro paste cheese blocks sell out quickly!
