3. Inside Scoop
AHHH yesyesyes! We did write about its opening here, but listing it again just to remind you not to miss it: It’s too good to be left behind. Visit their store in Queensbay Mall yourself and you’ll know what I mean. “Hi! We’re the best ice cream store from KL!”- Well, that’s the first thing you’d hear at the counter. Indeed, other than their A-list appeal, their impeccable service is surely the supporting role for the amazing menu it serves. Known for serving Malaysian flavoured ice cream like cempedak & chendol, their wide selection of eccentric flavours are also true crescendos of texture and flavour, and certainly not one for the faint-hearted.
