Malaysia can get quite hot at times, so how can we keep cool? By indulging in cool, refereshing, delicious ice cream!
COLD delicacies are most frequently seen in the form of ice cream, which has evolved into a wide range of flavour combinations throughout the years. Ice cream comes in a variety of flavours, from vanilla and chocolate to exotic combinations like gelato. It is continuously changing, yet it is always enjoyable. As a result, ice cream is considered as a symbol of joy and happiness and can be consumed at any time of day or night. We’re fortunate with a wide array of ice cream stores all around us.
Here are (in our opinion) the five best ice cream shops in Klang Valley that you should explore with your family, friends, and loved ones.
Piccoli Lotti, which translates as “small batches” in Italian, is a gelato shop based in Damansara Kim, which was their first branch before expanding to three more locations in Klang Valley: Subang, Puchong, and Bukit Jalil. This ice cream store specialises in handcrafted gelato handmade with only the freshest, most natural, and best-quality ingredients available – all in small batches to ensure the highest quality, flavour, and texture. There are numerous delectable flavours to taste, including Peruvian Dark Choc, Salted Butter Caramel, Niko Neko Houjicha, Hazelnut Stracciatella, and many more! So make sure to stop by and savour all of their delightful flavours!

Softsrve began operations in Damansara Uptown and has since expanded to other locations including Sri Petaling and Sea Park. The restaurant also serves waffles, premium tea, specialty coffee, iced shaken tea, and iced soda in addition to ice cream.

The Ice Cream Bar
The Ice Cream Bar, from the same creators who founded the successful start-up Inside Scoop, serves ice cream with a twist. The name is appropriate for what it offers, which is alcohol-infused ice cream. They have a variety of ice creams that are both alcohol-infused, such as Whisky Cream, XO Cranberry, Bailey’s, Whisky & Nuts, Smoked Cognac, and Beer, and non-alcoholic, such as Mint Stracciatella, Teh Tarik, Kopi Peng, Almond Butterscotch, and much more. The founders feel that alcoholic drinks, as well as the mixers that go with them, have rich flavours and nuances that would translate well to ice cream. They set out to create non-traditional alcoholic ice creams, constantly asking themselves how they might move the market “beyond rum and raisins.” As a result, the Ice Cream Bar was born.
