10 Places for Playful Affogatos in KL and SelangorSean Yoong
August 20, 2015
1. IDC Ice Dream Café in Damansara Kim
IDC offers a range of affogatos with a twist – instead of coffee, the ice cream is topped with a shot of something else. Our chief recommendation is the combination of New Zealand’s Kapiti vanilla ice cream laced with sea salt flakes, poured over with extra virgin olive oil. Well-refined, salty-sweet dynamics with well-defined, slippery-smooth dimensions; a cool way to enjoy ice cream. Other ‘affogato’ varieties include spicy ganache, orange zest, butterscotch & Earl Grey lavender.
Address: 30, Jalan SS 20/10, Damansara Kim
2. Bean Reserve at Bangsar
Bean Reserve makes its own satisfyingly smooth soft serves in flavours like the café’s Colombian-Brazilian house blend and another inspired by Momofuku Milk Bar’s celebrated Cereal Milk soft-serve. Have them drowned in hot espressos that can be paired with cornflakes for a crunchy counterpoint.
Address: 8 Lengkok Abdullah, Bangsar
