Jarrod & Rawlins @ Ampwalk


Not J&R's most popular branch, but a conveniently located one for many of us.


Vanilla & chocolate gelati. Can't call this the best in town (basically forgettable, in terms of taste), but good enough if you gotta have gelato.

  1. Gelato's gotta be good for it to be gelato, in my book. Isn't that the point of it all, the taste of summer in Venice chilling one's palate? :)

  2. Lfb: y'know, the first time I ever had gelato WAS indeed in Venice, since that was the first place I visited in italy. I was bowled over and even declared I'd never eat ice cream instead of gelato again (ahh, the folly of youth!). Btw why are u commenting on this orphan entry that I've relegated to the background. Today's spotlight on eat drink KL is on social @ KL!

  3. I'm not sure if the first time I had gelato was in Venice (doubt it) but it certainly was the first time I had a relevation of How Good This Stuff Really Is.

    And dunno lah, sorta missed your spotlight post, but have since commented there. Go look see. :P

  4. lfb: maybe it was in rome? i can even recall the exact location where i lost my gelato virginity. it was on an afternoon trip to torcello, one of the islands off venice. licking creamy vanilla gelato on a cloudy afternoon, ogling tanned italian dudes in a quaint village setting. no wonder i can't forget the experience :D

  5. Wah so exotic lah your first time! Mine was prolly after waiting in line for ages behind other pale, pasty-looking touristy types, with no tanned Italian hunks in sight. :P

  6. Ah, gelato, virginity and hunks...all my favourite topics. I lost my gelato virginity in Rome...in winter...but it was just so amazing. There were loads of tanned italians having cappuccino there since it was a hidden neighbourhood place known only to the locals.

  7. lfb: that's not a great way to lose your virginity at all! hope u've had more orgasmic experiences since then, gelato-wise! :P
    lemongrass: actually hor, i prefer eating ice cream and gelato when it's cold! there's something about it that makes sense to my taste buds. :D hmmm, but your roman holiday sounds better than mine already. i went in summer, and hated it. rome was like the puduraya of europe...

  8. Hey me too! I travel quite a lot in winter, and I always make it a point to eat ice cream/gelato. I don't see any reason why the cold should deter me from eating ice cream. In fact, it would be even better coz the ice cream won't melt so fast, right? (I hate dripping stuff) I agree with you, though...Rome is quite dirty.

    ReplyDelete
  9. @LL: Are you sure you hate dripping stuff? ;)

    @Sean: Rome's always more romantic in memory than in actual fact, no? Oh but the Dust of Rome can't dampen the Lust of Romans, I find. ;)

  10. lemongrass: i like to cool down during hot weather too, but i think an icy drink is much more satisfying than ice cream for that purpose. iced lemon tea during the dog days of summer, that's perfect.
    lfb: but when u watch movies like 'roman holiday' starring audrey hepburn (oh wait, i forgot, u don't watch classics), rome does seem like a desirable destination. then again, i'm also the one who pooh-poohed paris. the lust of romans? did u hook up with some herculean hero there :P

    ReplyDelete
  11. No, I'm with you - I'm all about pooh-poohing Paris too. Then again, I haven't since returned with a lover... Maybe that will make all the diffeerence. ;)

    P.S. Classics schmassics. Pooh.

  12. Iced lemonade! I could drink gallons of it. Or a margarita! A madagascar margarita! Ummmm...can tar pau and send one over ar?

  13. My perfect gelato was in Rome, Italy.. during my honeymoon :) near Trevi Fountain... I think the very same outlet is featured in Julia Robert's upcoming movie Eat, Pray, Love!!!

    ReplyDelete
  14. lfb: gosh, can u imagine how sappy your "paris in the springtime with the devil" post will be. i'm envisioning lines about "la vie en rose" wafting in the background while a mime distracts you both with his antics :D p.s. maybe i should team up with your friends to kidnap u and force u to watch every movie that gregory peck ever made :P
    lemongrass: it'll reflect badly on your company if any clients walk in and find u sprawled on the couch, drunk as a skunk and singing lady gaga's alejandro :D
    leo: hey, i didn't realize u had an italian honeymoon! that sounds really sweet. actually yeah, all the fountains in rome were nice, i totally forgot about them. and i'm looking forward to that movie too. hope it'll bring back good memories for you :D

    ReplyDelete
  15. Fuhgettabout 'La vie en rose', I wanna watch Lyrical Lemongrass sing Lady Gaga's Alejandro! :P

    ReplyDelete
  16. lfb: after two margaritas, u'll be able to hear her sing that song AND watch her perform a striptease to it! what happens after three margaritas? let's just say there might be ping pong balls and a bat involved :P

    ReplyDelete
  17. Hmm, so she might sing her own version of a 'Bat Romance' after the third margarita? :P

    ReplyDelete
  18. lfb: does that mean we'll need paparazzi there to capture the scene for posterity...

    ReplyDelete
  19. Well, we certainly don't have to call them. The Queen has her own private entourage of paparazzi following her wherever she deigns to go. :P

    ReplyDelete
  20. lfb: wonder if she ever gets enraged over their invasion of her privacy and flies into a fit, snatching their cameras and breaking them. oh wait, i forgot we're talking about a really exhibitionistic person :D

    ReplyDelete
  21. *guffaws*

    Dude, you gotta totally make sure she reads your last comment! (Then run for your life!)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Sean dearest, hasn't your grandmother told you not to kiss and tell? tsk tsk. now my 3 margarita story is out in the open. i remember you were not complaining. wink wink. smoooooch.

    ReplyDelete
  23. lfb: ahhh, speak of the lyrical one and smell the whiff of her lemongrass. she knows precisely the right time to pounce! :D
    lemongrass: alas, the paparazzi are never around to capture those moments. probably off somewhere stalking masak-masak :D

    ReplyDelete
  24. Hehe, one can only imagine you smelling the whiff of her lemongrass, and then some. Hehe.

    ReplyDelete
  25. lfb: then some is right, since smell is one of my least favorite senses. tasting and touching are so much more satisfying :D

    ReplyDelete
  26. My mind just got blinded at the thought of you TASTING and TOUCHING her lemongrass. Aduhai.

    ReplyDelete
  27. lfb: i guess that depends on what 'lemongrass' is supposed to be a metaphor for. any suggestions? :D

    ReplyDelete
  28. Ask the Queen herself. I daren't say. :P

    ReplyDelete
  29. lfb: she's busy working now, unlike some of us :D

  30. had my first gelato in Venice. and no, there was no earth-shaking experience then. however, an "experiment" involving gelato brought home did make up for the boring first time. LOL.

    gelato with Guiness? not a favorite combo of mine. Guiness needs something savoury to go with it. how was THAT like, btw?

    ReplyDelete
  31. elrond: experiment? sounds intriguing! though maybeeeeee u're not an ice cream fan in ths first place ... heheh, my friend ordered the guinness, while i had the white wine. but as expected, white wine and gelato don't go well together either! :D

    ReplyDelete
  32. For a post that's aint the same spotlighted one, it sure gets a lot of comments ! LOL.
    But true to that, good gelato are not easy to fidn in KL.
    I rank gelatimo at Pavillion as one of the better ones, and Bar Italia's only edible one is pistachio.
    But u had more / tried more than I did, which is yr fav?

    ReplyDelete
  33. Tng: u're right! Gelatomio lounge's one is actually one of the best! I can't quite think of any other that's better right now...
