A hidden oasis
Just weeks ago, Xiaoly moved her pastry shop to a bigger, better space at 18, Jalan SS2/72, Petaling Jaya (next to Toast and Roast), tucked away from the hustle and bustle of PJ City.
“It’s a bigger space than the previous one. I would describe this as a pastry place because there are more than just sweets,” said Koh, adding that there are also sweet and savoury pastries on the menu.

Tanuki by Crustz: Cutie-pies
This heart-melting ice cream dessert is an oxymoron of a burst of tropical flavours in the form of a seal.
Xiao-Ly Koh, the person behind Tanuki by Crustz says she wants to do her small part for the environment. “We want to remind our guests about animals that are affected by climate change. They are like our dessert melting in the heat,” she says.
The fuzzy surface on the outermost layer of The Seal is created using a chocolate velvet spray. The dessert is a combination of different textures; from the traditional homecooked pineapple chunks to the refreshing mango sorbet and the creamy coconut ice cream.
Passion for CNY petit gateau!
Xiao-Ly and her team created delightful CNY mini cakes with designs featuring the Ox, Koi fish, tea pot and others. These desserts come in different sizes with various flavours, textures and vibrant colours.
She initially started crafting pastries in her kitchen, before acquiring a degree in pastry arts. Inspired by traditional food and snacks, she decided to create these unique CNY creations at her patisserie, Xiao by Crustz, in Petaling Jaya.
Xiao by Crustz: Layers of flavours
The Coconut at Xiao by Crustz is entirely edible from the “husk” of the coconut to the chocolate straw. The dessert is made of coconut mousse, banana passion fruit compote, a crunchy base made of coconut, and a coating of dark chocolate to imitate the coconut husk. Xiao by Crustz is another shop owned by Xiao-Ly Koh.
