Looks do not matter

A big thank you to my friend who gave me a cold treat in this hot weather - Ais Kacang (Shaved ice with red beans, corns, cendol and etc). I think it costs MYR5.60 ++ (about MYR6.55 nett).

I know that I said I won't be eating at this place again but then we need a comfy place to catch up on 8 months' worth of info with each other and this venue fits the bill.

I had a choice of rose syrup or palm syrup (gula melaka) to go with this ice shavings and I chose the former because sometimes the palm syrup used could be the variety that I don't like the taste of so I select rose syrup which taste is more consistent as I did not want to take a risk on that. Overall it is tasty except for the few small glutinous rice balls (mochi) that seemed to be uncooked but I ate them all. :)

  1. I ate ice kacang yesterday afternoon right after lunch because I was so thirsty and hot. It is great to catch up with friends over a bowl of ice kacang.

  4. I've written off that franchise place, expensive, not nice...and service is very very slow. None here, last I went was to one in Kuching, a few years ago.

  8. Good choice, their gula melaka... cannot one. If I thought Turkish Delights and Magnum Gold are too sweet, their gula melaka are too sweet x10. At least that's what I feel lah...

  10. Interesting! I didn't know Old Town had ice kacang. Yeah, the food isn't really nice, but it's nice to have meetings there, both for business and pleasure.

  11. Long time since I had ABC. I hardly go for desserts since hubby doesn't like them. If I do also, have to eat fast-fast and then it's no fun anyway.

  12. Our extremely hot weather is killing me and my air cons are running full blasts all day which is not my normal way.

    I have been eating ice creams and ice kachangs often too.
