A relatively new kid in town dishing out 3 flavours of soft serve, ie matcha, hojicha and milk. The soft serve comes in two sizes, the regular cup will cost RM 9.90 net and the mini cup will cost RM 6.90 net. The matcha soft serve is decent but not to my liking as I find it a tad too milky and I prefer my matcha ice cream to have a stronger / bitter after taste but nonetheless, enjoyable. A more delightful flavour will be the Hojicha soft serve! It's still quite uncommon to see any hojicha related food in Malaysia so I'm definitely delighted to try this out. The hojicha isn't very strong but it's a lovely twist to the usual matcha flavour found in most of the cafes in Klang Valley. So hop over to PS Tokyo to try their soft serves and if you check in via FB, you will get mini soft serve on the house!

Another new kid joining the Shibuya Toast hype in Klang Valley! I have my eyes fixed on Matcha Toast (RM 16) once I saw it on the menu as anything matcha is my dead spot. The toast is crispy on the outside, soft & fluffy on the inside which imo, tastes as good on its own even without the cream & ice cream. However, one minor let down is the ice cream itself as it has started to melt right after it was served and by the time I was done with feeding my phone, the scoop of ice cream seated on top of the toast has melted by half. Also, the ice cream doesn't have a strong green tea after taste as its too milky for my liking. The owner has also recognized the problem with the melting ice cream and they are trying to source for another supplier so hopefully things will change for the better! Try it out guys, u won't regret for sure!

I was craving for waffle and a cuppa but didn't wanna succumb to the usual suspect so the bf suggested Brewmen and well, I'm glad now that he has brought me here because the smor-ffle was so delish! It's a combination of 4 pieces of crispy waffles, heated marshmallow and two scoops of ice cream. I scoffed that the sight of the marsh mallow (not a big fan) but wow, I was delighted when I had it with the waffle cos it just melted in my mouth. However, service was a bit of a let down maybe due to the crowd but this won't hinder me from going back for more smor-ffle!

Spicy Ganache (RM 12) & Welsh Cakes (RM 15) are our picks this round.

Spicy Ganache is part of IDC's unconventional affogatos whereby ganache is poured over their Spicy Apple Crumble ice cream, instead of the usual combination of coffee and vanilla based ice cream. It's very unique as the ganache has a slight bitter after taste which could offset the sweetness found in the ice cream. However, due to spices have been added into the original apple crumble flavour, it might be advisable to share the Spicy Apple Crumble ice cream as you might get a pretty intense spicy after taste if you have it all by yourself.

The less impressive is the Welsh Cakes top with Vanilla ice cream as I find this combination pretty ordinary. I have no idea whether it's due to they substituted the Vintage Strawberry ice cream with Vanilla flavour hence, it has slightly altered the whole combination. Nonetheless, it won't hinder me from going back as I'm interested in trying out other unique combination and in the near future, they will be introducing more flavours so save your tummy for their non-conventional offers!

Another new kid in this ice cream industry! As compared to Inside Scoop, the flavours are lesser but equally unique! Tried "lemongrass & ginger" as well as "black doris plum & creme frainche" this round and oh boy, I was so happy that these two flavours were not overly sweet. The price for their ice cream is pretty standard, RM 8 for a scoop and RM 12 for two scoops. So head down there and give this new kid a try.

Matcha waffle tops with shiratama, strawberries and azuki with a side of black sesame ice cream (RM 19). This plate comes with a very hefty price tag imo as all these are normal ingredients which one could get it easily and we wolfed down within 15 mins so the portion has not justified the price tag as well. The waffle with the azuki beans are absolutely heavenly but at this price, I doubt I'll do a second visit as I still can't justify the price tag to my wallet.

If you are a fan of green tea and brownie and sesame ice cream, REJOICE!! Rekindle is serving green tea brownie with your choice of green tea of black sesame ice cream. I was basically squealing in my heart when I saw this and wow, Rekindle really does their job best! The brownie itself is not too sweet and add on with a scoop of black sesame ice cream, the whole combination is a happy orchestra dancing in your mouth. Another plus point is their staff is so friendly and keeps checking on us to make sure that everything is fine. One brownie point for them!

Always a loyal fan of #insidescoop cos almost everytime I visited the branches, I discovered a new flavour and for this round, it's peanut butter jelly! Kudos to the team behind Inside Scoop to keep churning out new flavours but kinda bummed that most of their flavours now are premium flavours which an additional RM 1.50 is charged. Nonetheless, I'll still willingly pay the additional RM 3.50 (premium flavours + handmade cone) because that's most of the time, this is the most convenient way to buy myself a little dose of happiness, amidst the towering workload & stress. So, if you have not visited Inside Scoop for awhile, please make your move there and get a taste of this delish flavour!

Walked into this shop with my expectation hovering between the thought of an overpriced McD ice cream and a slight hope that it will at least justify the price that I'm going to pay. I've decided to try Deep Chocolate with Churros (RM11) and plain Oolong Tea (RM9) but unfortunately, the deep chocolate soft serve does not justify the price tag. It tastes like a premium McD ice cream, and that's all it's about it. On the other hand, the Oolong Tea soft serve is worth giving it a try as it's not common to have such flavours going around in the market.

Hailed as one of the best dessert at its sister cafe, the cempedak spring rolls with vanilla ice cream (RM 15) has made its appearance in the menu here as well. The cempedak blends well with the vanilla ice cream and one plus point is, the vanilla ice cream does not taste like this which you bought off the rack, with heavy vanilla essence aftertaste.

By the name of this dish, who would have thought that the team has incorporated lamb meatballs into this dish. This is definitely a new twist which is a good one as it amazingly blends well with the cheesy omelette. Beside than the new elements incorporated into their brunch menu, their pricing is pretty competitive with no GST and service charge, so, what is not to be loved about this cafe!

Pandan infused pancakes topped with caramelised bananas, cream and shredded coconut. When you have too many western style desserts going round the area, a twist to this traditional flavour would be a good choice since every (almost) Malaysian grew up having pandan being incorporated into their meals. The whole concoction is an orchestra in your mouth with pandan and bananas taking over the stage. This place definitely warrants subsequent visits to try out other interesting items on their menu.
