Jipangi Ice Cream @ Sunway Pyramid

Distinctive Korean desserts step up their march into Malaysia, from Seoul to Sunway Pyramid - Jipangi this week introduces 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.

 
 The ice cream is your basic soft-serve, no surprises there. The cane is crunchy & much thicker than your average ice cream cone, ensuring the soft-serve won't easily melt through & make a mess. All in all, a fun snack & an enjoyable-enough novelty.

 Bottled cold brews - Americanos, lattes & more by Three Bears Dutch Coffee - for a convenient thirst-quencher.
