Cafe discovery #13: Sangkaya Nuts About Coconuts @ Ampang Point


I was drooling all over the place when my Instagram feed was mostly pictures of this beauty back in December 2014 when I was in London. I searched high and low for something similar in London just to ease the cravings but to no avail. When I got back in Kuala Lumpur, I was drowned by work and I got sick but the cravings were still there.

Finally a few weeks back, my mum and I got a taste of this kick-ass coconut ice-cream. To say that it was delicious is an understatement. It was everything I imagined it to be and more. Made purely from coconut milk, it is super creamy without any sickening after taste. The toppings help to add texture and it includes toasted desiccated coconut, oats, corns and peanuts. For four mini scoops of ice-cream in the husk of a young coconut with any 3 toppings, it will cost you RM9.90. If you dig deep, you will get some sweet coconut flesh to enjoy. This is the ice-cream for those chronic die-hard coconut ice-cream fans like me.  This, satisfied my cravings.

Fish Ice Cream?


Day 34: Samanco Ice Cream

I was not feeling splendid today so I decided to have some ice cream to make me feel better. A fish shaped ice cream sandwich made my day! This is huge and it is so good! It does not taste like fish by the way, just shaped like a cute fish.

The wafer taste like the usual cheap ice cream cone. Inside, it consist of a layer of red bean paste and vanilla ice cream. I’m not usually a fan of anything red bean but the one inside this ice cream sandwich goes well with the vanilla flavoured ice cream. The vanilla ice cream is not the best as it states that it was artificial vanilla flavoured ice cream on the packaging. But it was decent nonetheless.

I got this ice cream from Oiso Korean Traditional Cuisine and Cafe at Menara Hap Seng. For one fish ice cream sandwich, it costed me RM6.90 which is pretty steep for just a decent ice cream. You have to bare in mind that it is huge and plus the red bean paste made it extra special.

A decent fish shaped ice cream sandwich made my day! What made your day today?
