OMG Ooh My Gas LN2 Ice Cream @ Pavilion

Got gas? Barely a month after NBrew established Malaysia's first liquid nitrogen ice cream kiosk at eCurve, another purveyor of LN2 pleasures has suddenly surfaced, this time at the wonderfully convenient location of Pavilion.
Entry on NBrew @ eCurve: January 13.

Ooh My Gas (cute name) at Pavilion offers an impressive degree of minus-210-degree customization. The ordering procedure might seem complicated initially: Patrons first need to choose a base, either ice cream, gelato or soy milk.

Next, determine your flavor: everything from macadamia milk to coffee java chips, sesame to white chocolate, grape to pineapple. Then decide on toppings: cashews, pistachios, corn flakes, Reese's, Oreos, marshmallows & more. 

The frosty fun begins immediately; each cup (prices start at RM12.90) takes a minute to make, with the mixes flash-frozen with liquid nitrogen & served to order.

Peanut butter alert! Our top pick: Peanut butter gelato topped with pecans. Folks will probably have their own preferences, but with the right combination of flavor & topping, Ooh My Gas ranks pretty much on par with the fabulous Cielo Dolci.
Entry on Cielo Dolci @ Paradigm Mall: June 3, 2012.

Hazelnut nutella ice cream. An absolute delight, dense, rich & smooth enough to become everyone's latest addiction.

Cinnamon ice cream, with a soy milk base & cream cheese topping, near-perfect in taste & texture. Note that customers can also specify whether they want their ice cream very sweet, moderately sweet or relatively less sweet.

Ooh My Gas OMG Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream,
Level 1, Pavilion Shopping Mall, Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur.

  1. Nice? The cup reminds me of Baskin' Robbins. They should have used some other colours.

    1. Foo Chee: hope you enjoy it! Yeah, taking the first bite of the peanut butter gelato here was really nice ... And it reminded me of how surprisingly enjoyable cielo dolci's gelato tasted, when I had it with no expectations attached on paradigm mall's opening day. =)

  3. Wow I'm surprised how this liquid nitrogen thing is taking off all at the same time! It's good to be able to choose level of sweetness. Next thing you know we'll be asked whether we want to add pearls or not. =P

    1. Drops of contentment: yeah, the cost of setting up these liquid nitrogen places seems to be relatively high, so we probably won't see an explosion of many such places, unless profits really boom for them! Heheh, so they won't be as ubiquitous as bubble tea anytime this year :D

    1. Ulric: interesting combo! Sounds like a winner. Just note, it might be my imagination, but I think the soy milk base ice cream is less creamy compared to the gelato base one, so it might be worth trying all three different bases eventually if you enjoy your first cup enough =)

    2. Haha...got it...must try all 3 bases...not a prob! =)

    3. Ulric: yay! Enjoy :D

    1. Iamthewitch: yeah, the process of using liquid n2 does seem to result in really smooth ice cream (especially at nbrew at eCurve). Heheh, sounds like you've chosen quite a nutty- chocolatey flavor for yourself! Nice :D

    1. Eunice: ya, the flavors for this ice cream taste strong enough on their own, so there's no need for extra sugar. Heheh, hope u enjoy it! =)

  17. Nice! I've heard of this place, wanted to head over too. I like the concept of flash freezing, it can produce some artsy ice cream. :)

    1. Huai Bin: yeah, it seems to be a great concept, since the outlet is able to produce a wide range of different flavor combinations on the spot! No need for supermarket ice cream varieties anymore, heh! =)

  18. huge peanut butter fan here. was really excited to try theirs but it tasted bland! not even any where close to cielo's. maybe their staff screwed up when mixing ingredients? may try again next time...

    1. Aiden: yikes, sad and sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy it. i wonder if that's the risk when it comes to this sort of customization, versus cielo's stricter specifications for its balance of flavors. i haven't been back here since the first time, but everything i tried then was good...
