P.S. Tokyo is currently operating with a very simple menu consisting of Japanese flavoured Matcha, Hojicha and Milk Softserve. If you want more excitement than just solely softserve, you can try their Matcha Affogato(RM 13.9), Matcha Parfait & Hojicha Parfait(RM 15.9).Their signature softserves would be Matcha and Hojicha which undoubtedly won many softserve fans! Matcha and Hojicha, in other words known as fine powder tea and over roasted tea respectively. 

P.S Tokyo uses the best ingredients around, they do not settle for less. They use one of the best Matcha and Hojicha ingredients from Uji, Kyoto to give an authentic flavour experience to their customers. No milk replacement and premix were used during the creation to ensure premium experience of thick and rich soft serve. 

Overall, the soft-serve is thick, smooth and well-balanced in terms of sweetness. One of the best soft-serve so far! Huge cup at RM9.9 while mini ones(picture above) at RM 6.9.

The NEW creation, the one and only Wasabi Softserve with a spoonful of Ebiko in P.S. Tokyo! Good news to Wasabi lovers and for those who aren’t one, double your courage to try it! You’ll expect a punch of Wasabi flavour from the creamy soft-serve. Fiery flavour indeed. However, it’s only for a limited time only so quickly drop by!

2. Softsrve

Softsrve, located at Damansara Uptown is an artisan ice cream parlor that specialises on creating unusual soft ice- cream flavours and experience. Softsrve initially started off with only two flavours which are cereal milk and deep chocolate. Softsrve is the first to offer cereal milk soft serve flavour in KL which was inspired by New York’s Momofuku Milk Bar. Softsrve comes with interesting toppings- popcorn, honeycomb, cotton candy, crushed potato chips and truffles which makes their softserve photogenic to be instagram-worthy! Recently, 2 NEW flavours are added to their menu- Oolongcha & Honey Matcha. Parfaits are available in Softsrve as well- ‘Big Breakfast’, ‘High Tea’ and ‘After Dinner’ at RM 17.

Lovin’ the minimalist design. Of white walls, wooden chairs and tables and see-through entrance, allowing sunlight through. A cozy environment for you to enjoy your ice-cream!

It tastes just like how it sounds. Milky and creamy with obvious cereal fragrance. Cereal Milk is not your ordinary vanilla flavour, hence, you should give it a try! 

Deep Chocolate Softserve with Homemade Chocolate Truffles and drizzle of Chocolate Sauce (RM 12) [Picture credits to Softsrve]

Dark, bitter and creamy. Chocolate lovers, you’ll love this!

Each cup is served in another cup of dry ice to keep the ice cream from melting which explains the smoky effect from it. On top of that, it gives a theater effect which makes their softserve even more photogenic and gives a ‘wow’ factor!

                                                          Oolongcha Softserve with Churros (RM12)                                               Roasted black tea soaked with milk with savory and bitter finish. It comes with all kinds of toppings- sunflower, almonds, honey, cotton candy and churros. All-time customers’ favourite toppings would be sunflower and honey! The combination works well with the flavour. I personally love it as it has a strong roasted tea aftertaste, creamy texture and yet refreshing. You’ll love this if you’re an avid tea lover!

Crispy and fluffy waffles goes with all hand crafted softserve. There will be two sauces available for you to pick – burn butter espresso sauce or match sauce.                            

Processed with VSCOcam with a6 preset Honey Matcha [modern interpretation] (RM 16)

Last but not least, the latest addition to their menu. Matcha is one of all time favourite flavour among dessert lovers. Softsrve’s matcha is with a twist- Honey Matcha Softserve. Bittersweet with subtle honey fragrance ends with heavy matcha aftertaste. 

Two new mini parfait featuring featuring Royce’ Malaysia have arrived! It comes in traditional and modern approach, both at RM 16. The difference between both are the layers. In traditional, honey matcha softserve is layered with shiratama dango, azuki red bean and kinako crunch along toppings of Royce’ R chocolat and Royce’ baton cookies. On the other hand for modern interpretation, honey matcha softserve consists layers of milk jelly, yogurt espuma and black sesame crumble along the same toppings- Royce’ R chocolat and Royce’ baton cookies.

I ordered the modern interpretation and it’s definitely not your typical Matcha softserve. For hardcore Matcha lovers, it’d be able to satisfy your cravings as it’s more to the bitter side and has a stronger matcha flavour. However, some of you may not fancy it if you like them subtle and on the sweeter side. The layers were interesting especially the yogurt espuma. It balances up the bitterness of the matcha and gives a creamy taste to it. The black sesame crumble adds some crunch texture to it. And, good quality Royce chocolate and cookies complementing it well.

Overall, a place you can hang out with your friends while enjoy a variety of softserves available here! Do check them out and their new flavours!

3. Fluffed Cafe & Dessert Bar

Fluffed Cafe & Dessert Bar, located at Taman Paramount serves wonderful variety of homemade ice-creams along homemade waffles other than their cakes.

Consists of lavender blueberry ice-cream, blueberry compote, butter crumble & fresh berries. The lavender blueberry ice-cream was definitely the highlight of the dish as it had a soothing lavender aftertaste which goes so well with the fresh berries and waffles. No doubt, one of the best waffles I’ve tried so far! The waffles were absolutely fragrant, fluffy, light and airy with a slight crisp on the outer layer as an ideal waffle should be.

Consists of hokeypokey(honeycomb) ice-cream, salted caramel, crushed honeycomb & fruits. The honeycomb ice-cream balanced out well with the salted caramel with addition of the extra crunch from the crushed honeycomb. 

Overall, a good dining experience with good ice-cream over excellent waffles. Do check them out!

IDC serves not-your-typical affogato with coffee but a range of other combinations; orange zest, spicy ganache, butterscotch, earl grey lavender, mocha mint chocolate and coffee as well. All at RM 12.

The highly recommended infused affogato has to be the Olive Oil & Sea Salt Flakes. A combination of vanilla ice cream laced with sea salt flakes, poured over with extra virgin olive oil. Very interesting flavour, a must-try if you’ve not experience it! However, I wouldn’t crave for it for my second visit.

A surprise of 5 divine flavours of Kapiti Ice-cream with hazelnut meal, served on a scrumptious bed of brownie chunks. The above flavours are their spicy apple crumble,  lemongrass and ginger, raspberry sorbet, after dinner mint & black doris plum & creme fraiche. Bold combination! Be adventurous and surprise your tastebud with their flavours(;

I can conclude IDC Ice Dreams Cafe would be the place for you if you’re looking for adventurous and bold flavours!

Cereal Milk, one of the trending flavours now. Cereal Milk Softserve topped with cornflakes giving the crunch texture as you dive into the softserve. The softserve itself is creamy and smooth, it’s just so good. Their cereal milk fragrance is slightly to the mild side.

For coffee lovers, they serve softserve affogato (RM 15) as well which is a combination of softserve, cornflakes and coffee. One of the recommendations there!
