The Nasi Lemak Ice Cream Is Here, Malaysia!
Indonesia made raving news with the succession of finally getting the beloved instant mee goreng flavour transferable to ice cream texture, so here’s Malaysia’s turn!
Do not scrunch your face up when trying to imagine what nasi lemak ice cream would taste like, and instead savour the actual concoction right now! Bringing together one of Malaysia’s most innovative ice cream creators Crème De La Crème and Air Asia’s in-flight menu brand Santan, the country’s 63rd Merdeka celebrations and Malaysia Day commemorations promises to be great ones.
Catherine Goh, General Manager of Santan said:
“Santan is proud to celebrate Malaysia’s culinary heritage together with local entrepreneur, Crème De La Crème (CDLC) to bring two limited-time only flavours – Pak Nasser’s Nasi Lemak ice-cream and Pandan Dodol ice-cream. While these flavours need no introduction in the local market, our collaboration with CDLC promises a unique and flavoursome experience with 100% all-natural fresh ingredients. We look forward to taking our top-selling Pak Nasser’s Nasi Lemak meal, which has sold almost 20,000 units since our restaurant opened, to the next level as a dessert.”
With a creamy coconut base and original real sambal that’s chutney-sweet, this dish that has been a signature menu item at Santan for five years now is a definite not-to-miss, however outlandish your initial ideas might be! Sprinkle some anchovies and roasted peanuts on top, and you’re in for the joy of experiencing and liking an all new flavour cementing true Malaysian spirit.
Lio Lim, Managing Director of CDLC enthused
“We are delighted to be partnering Santan as we are fans of their iconic Pak Nasser’s Nasi Lemak. Having shaken up the ice cream world by revolutionising the concept and taste of ice cream, we have found the perfect partner in Santan to once again – recapture the imagination of ice cream in celebration of Merdeka and of course, Santan’s fifth anniversary. We cannot wait for all Malaysians to try our two very unique Malaysian flavours!”
For those still wanting to jump on the National Day festivities but need a little more acclimatising flavour, the Pandan Dodol ice cream will bring our your inner kampung, and make you dream of the good old days of snacking on traditional kuih with your old folks. A truly Malaysian flavour, we guarantee that everyone of all ages will enjoy it!
These limited-edition Malaysian flavours are available from today onwards, and are priced at only RM8.80 per serving. Single-serve cups are available exclusively at Santan outlets in Midvalley Megamall and Sunway Pyramid, while scoops are ready to be paired up with any other flavour you desire at Crème De La Crème’s Uptown Damansara and Mont Kiara outlets.
