Pandan softserve at Modos

I have been meaning to try the tofu puddings at this place but couldn’t find it on the first attempt because I was in the wrong part of MK.
I managed to stumble across it when I was not looking for it and ended up trying the softserve because I love pandan flavoured things.
The joint was nice but out of place in MK because it would probably do better on the HK side.
Anyway, the annoying loudspeaker at the counter was pumping out music which made it hard to order and ask about stuff.

There is a loyalty card given to you when you buy desserts but it is kind of confusing because you get a stamp for spending over a certain amount which is not mentioned on the terms and conditions on the card.

There were quite a few options for the softserve but I went for the plain pandan because I wanted to see how it tastes.

There are two fancy ones, one has red beans and mochi and the other one has softserve and tofu pudding with a molecular ball of pandan syrup to release sweetness when you eat the tofu pudding.

Pandan softserve:

The pandan softserve was really nice with a fragrant pandan taste but it didn’t need that extra syrup because it made it a bit too sweet for my liking.
It is meant to light green but the photo does not show.
Pandaniac (normal):

The drink was amazing because I love water infused with fresh pandan leaves but the pandan syrup made it a bit too sweet for my liking.
The colour of natrual pandan and mint is not green when the flavour is extracted but green colouring is used to make it look more attractive.
Pandaniac (without syrup):

Tried it without the syrup and it tastes like water with a fragrant pandan aftertaste.
The pandan flavour is not as strong as the above because the pandan syrup is a pandan concentrate which maximizes the pandan taste.
Anyway, it was nice having a sweet free one because it tastes the same as the pandan water given at this Thai restaurant in Wan Chai.
I can't wait to go back and try the tofu pudding and one of the fancy dessert cups.
