Top 5 Irresistible and Popular Ice Cream Shops in TTDI

The saying ‘there’s always room for dessert’ never gets old. We, Malaysians, would never say no to having desserts with our friends or family after a wholesome meal. In today’s article, Foodpanda will be exploring and ranking the top 5 irresistible and popular ice cream shops in TTDI that you need to know.

1. IDC (Ice Dreams Café)

If you’re looking for a place to enjoy and relax after a long day of work (and to avoid the jam during peak hours), stop by IDC for a taste of delicious ice cream. IDC introduces Kapiti ice cream in their menu – an amazing ice cream brand from New Zealand.  Besides that, the store offers a vast range of innovative ice cream flavours, such as lemongrass & ginger, spicy apple crumble, fig and honey, lemon sorbet, and blackcurrant & blackberry. There are also various exciting affogatos where instead of drowning the ice cream with coffee, it is topped with flavours, such as spicy ganache, orange zest, butterscotch and Earl Grey lavender. A rather odd but delicious choice would be the vanilla ice cream with sea salt flakes, poured over with extra virgin olive oil.

Operating Hours: Tuesdays – Fridays (3.00 PM – 11.00 PM); Saturdays – Sundays (1.00 PM – 11.00 PM)
