Nothing is more perfect than few scoops of coconut ice cream on a hot sunny Sunday! NOTHING!
Just to let you all know how we both fell in love with coconut ice cream. It all started when we decided to try the ice cream out at a shop called "Love Locks" which you can find the post HERE. And not long after that, the shop closed down. SO SAD OKAYYY! Then, for few months we went searching in this whole entire island (okay, maybe not whole island but we did went around) to look for coconut ice cream but couldn't find.
And then finally, we found this place and the first time we went there, it was closed because it was her daughter's wedding. So yeah, then this time we went back and SO HAPPY THAT IT WAS OPEN!! SO SO HAPPY!
The stall is in the Burmese Temple along Burma Lane. The moment you step inside, it's on your left.
OH SUCH HAPPINESS LANDED THAT DAY!

He says: I'm a big big fan of coconut ice creams! I'll say this one is just okay though.. The flavour or fragrance of the coconut/santan is not strong enough. But maybe its because of the toppings that covered the richness of the ice cream. Would go back there again because its the only coconut ice cream I know of in Penang but I would not add any toppings on it the next time.
She says: Best flavour for ice cream ever! This one is not the best we tried but still very yummy. The word I will use to describe it would be REFRESHING! I thought at first the toppings were quite weird to be eaten together, but I kinda love it! The sweet corn together with the peanuts. Yums.
