6 Cafes for Soft-Serve Ice Cream in KL and Selangor
1. Every Sundae at Damansara Uptown
Gorgeously customisable soft gelato sundaes at this new initiative by Cielo Dolci; choose a base – cup, handmade cone, orange crepe, giant choux, giant cookie or Belgian waffle; then select a soft-serve flavour – for now, it’s vanilla beans, raspberry cinnamon sorbetto, deep dark chocolate, salted caramel or a mix of two flavours – with toppings like caramel popcorn, cookie crumbs, cotton candy, lemon marshmallows, strawberry meringue & cheesecake crumbs, plus sauces that include butterscotch sesame, pandan kaya, chantilly cream, passion fruit compote, berries compote & chocolate fudge.
Address: 9 Jalan SS 21/37, Damansara Utama

2. D’Lee Deli at Casa Tropicana
The secret weapon in D’Lee Deli’s culinary arsenal is its own-made thick soft-serve ice cream (vanilla or choc), served with waffles or blondies.
Address: B08, Ground Floor, Casa Tropicana, Persiaran Tropicana

3. Milkcow at Mid Valley
Malaysia’s pioneering outpost of Korean soft-serve ice cream specialist Milkcow is all about deliciously smooth, decadently dense but delicately mild-tasting ice cream, well-constructed with organic milk, wisely crowned with various toppings.We were sceptical about the popcorn-flavoured macaron & almond toppings, but the macaron turned out to be a triumph – winsomely fresh, well-balanced in flavour & finely tuned in texture.
Address: LG K23, The Gardens Mall

4. Jipangi at Sunway Pyramid
Soft-serve ice cream in J-shaped puffed corn canes, a conspicuous attraction that hails from Insadong in South Korea’s capital.Prepare to be the subject of stares if you walk through the mall while munching on this. Each cane – which can be snapped into two & shared – is stuffed with a choice of vanilla or chocolate (RM7). Or have both flavours, one on each end, for RM9.
Address: LG2.75A Sunway Pyramid Shopping Mall
5. Softsrve at Damansara Uptown
Softsrve’s ice cream is presented to patrons, with lots of fog surging out of each serving, evocative of liquid nitrogen ice cream. Softsrve takes a leaf out of Momofuku Milk Bar’s book, bringing cereal milk ice cream – made with milk combined with corn flakes – from NYC to KL. It’s potentially an acquired taste, rather rich, but with a something of a powdery finish, texture-wise.
Address: 31, Jalan SS21/1A, Damansara Uptown
6. Red Kettle at Taman Desa
For a fun hot-&-cold pairing, try Red Kettle’s Vietnamese coffee alongside its soft-serve vanilla ice cream.
Address: 37 Jalan Bukit Desa 5, Taman Bukit Desa
