K Pop – Watermelon Ice Cream On A Stick

A watermelon on a stick ice cream was surprisingly satisfying. Was with Korean food and Korean pop culture enthusiast Zyneste who introduced me to some funky Korean ramen from the Asian supermarket too. I bought a can of Haitai Bon Bon Grape juice too. Quite nice all.

Hot Day At Little Korea On This Day Two Years Ago

I like the many Korean grocers at Little Korea, Ampang. Everything on a product’s packaging is in Korean. The few things I can make out visually is the graphic on the wrapper of this watermelon popsicle.

Taste great, especially on a hot day, and the melon seeds are actually chocolate chips. I like the limey green part more, though.

Kow Po Revisited

Kow Po is that famous family-owned ice-cream parlour in Bentong. I tried their cendol (icy dessert of green jelly in coconut milk, sweetened with palm sugar) this time and was delighted to find a scoop of pandan (screwpine) flavoured ice-cream on it.

While home-made ice cream is their signature product, part of the appeal of the place is the old-school containers and high-back diner-style chairs of the 60’s. The place is also quite dark, perhaps harking back to the dimly-lit coffee-houses that served as courting venues during yesteryears.

There is also a Malay lady selling some killer nasi lemak and rojak for which I didn’t try. On weekends, there are literally busloads of people lining up to get in.
