Delicious ice cream, creative and fun flavours
Can get crowded as it's tiny!
Now is the best time ever to be a foodie in Kuala Lumpur. Never before have we been so spoilt for choice as so many independent and artisanal makan spots are popping out all over the city. You name it they got it: bread, coffee, pizza, burgers… and ice cream. Which brings us nicely to Inside Scoop at Bangsar which has been around for close to a year. This must be one of the best ice creams in KL. The place itself is tiny but very cosy and well decorated. At the entrance is a white board wall of sorts where fans write down thank you notes and tributes. It’s pretty cute.
They make their ice cream fresh daily at the back of the shop. If you love trying out flavours galore, then Inside Scoop is your place. I think it’s safe to assume that you’ll find a different set of flavours each time you come here. There are, however, some flavours that are constantly around. All the ice cream here is very smooth and packed full of flavour.
Tiny but cosy interior
My pick? Valrhona Chocolate. It is probably one of the best chocolate ice creams I’ve ever had: bitter and sweet in equal measure, with a rich cocoa flavour that lingers long in the back of your throat. Teh Tarik tastes exactly like the beverage, and it’s not too sweet. You boring folk sticking to vanilla are in for a treat too as Inside Scoops’ take on it uses fresh vanilla and is fragrant and yummy. Try too, their Durian. It literally tastes like frozen durians. I’m not a fan, but I know of friends who swear by it.
I wish I could choose them all... except durian.
Other flavours of note? They have sorbets like mango, passionfruit. Try your luck on the day you go. Sometimes they have seasonal fruit flavoured ice creams. I tried an Avocado once (good) and Chempedak (not a fan, but my friend did say it’s delicious. She’s weird). Salted Caramel and Hazelnut are pretty foolproof options as well. Try your ice cream in or on their home-made waffles for some textural contrasts. If your throat is feeling a bit sticky from the ice cream, Inside Scoop also serves coffee and drinks, and hey look, free flow water!
Beginning from around RM7.90 for a scoop, ice cream here is pretty value for money considering the superb quality. Do take note some of the ice cream flavours contain alcohol in it, but the staff there is friendly and more than willing to steer you to other options.
New favourite ice cream spot!
I thouroughly enjoyed Inside Scoop. In fact, it’s my favourite ice cream parlour at the moment. Even better, it’s just one row behind a favourite burger joint of mine. So if you’re up for some excellent ice cream after a good burger, Inside Scoop at Bangsar has you covered.
