Inside scoop ice cream

A friend took me to an up-and-coming local ice cream parlor call Inside Scoop. We went to the Damansara Jaya branch.

Inside scoop started off as one store in Bangsar. Now it has expanded and they have 17 outlets throughout Selangor and in other states. I liked that they created unique local flavors such as durian, teh tarik, and cendol using local ingredients such as local tea and gula melaka (palm sugar) to the ice cream.


We ordered the peanut butter cup, strawberry, and durian. It cost 18.50 ringgit for a triple scoop. The ice cream was smooth, creamy, and rich in flavor. It exceeded my expectations.

Inside scoop can definitely compete with international ice cream chains.

Irresistible indulgence – Godiva soft serve

I first saw the poster for the Godiva Chocolate soft serve ice cream on the glass panel of the Godiva store in Sanlitun Village (a shopping area here in Beijing). My first thought was … Oh that looks amazing, will have to try it the next time I am in the area.


The ice cream comes in a crispy waffle cone dusted with crunchy chocolate biscuits, sprinkled with chocolate sauce. In Beijing, we only get one flavor – chocolate. I think in the US you get three different variations. 

I had this the other day and I have to say, this is the best chocolate ice cream I have tasted. It is amazingly smooth and rich. It is a little pricey, but for me – worth every penny.
