We know that Malaysia is all about rain and sunny day and although we love the sun sometimes we just need to cool down. The best way to do that is by having ice cream, of course! So, if you’re in Penang and you’re looking to cool down, here are our best 6 Penang Ice Cream Places for a hot day.
1. Urban Artisan Café
We love the ice creams served at Urban Artisan! Each serving has its own blend of unique combinations, and not to mention its unbelievably rich and creamy texture. If you’re planning on visiting the store, our chief recommendation would be their sea salt and yam flavoured ice cream.
Location: 122-C, Jalan Burma, George Town
2. Unicorn Dessert Café
Head on down to Unicorn Dessert Café where you’ll be able to enjoy generous servings of ice cream on waffles. The store has made quite a name for itself as it caught the attention of many Penangnites. We recommend you try their Malaysian inspired ice cream flavours like Tau Fu Fa and Tangerine.
Location: 107, Lebuh Victoria, George Town
3. Creameal Handcrafted Ice Cream
From classic flavours like chocolate and vanilla to unique local-inspired flavours like cendol and gula Melaka. Creameal Handcrafted Ice Cream is where you should be if you’re looking for handcrafted delicious ice creams. You also have the option to choose between the many waffle flavours to go with your ice cream. Not only that, but the store has a warm and cosy ambience for locals to escape the heat in Penang.
Location: 63, Jalan Gurdwara, George Town
4. The Ais
For those of you who are more health-conscious but still love a little ice-cream treat every once in a while then you will definitely want to make your way to The Ais. Its ice creams are made from Kefir milk, which has a series of benefits to one’s immune system. They also serve vegan-friendly ice creams.
Location: 473A, Chulia St, Georgetown
5. Coko Ice Cream
What we like most about Coko Ice Cream is that everything served in their store is homemade with the use of fresh ingredients. Furthermore, Coko’s original butter waffles cones are worth mentioning – crispy with just enough sweetness and buttery taste to complement their ice cream. If you can’t decide what flavour to try, we definitely recommend that you go for their Sago Gula Melaka ice cream to start with.
Location: 425, Chulia St, Georgetown
6. Rollney Penang
What distinguishes Rollney from the rest are not just its outstanding ice-cream flavours, but it’s also the bread roll cones that they use. We mean, talk about renewing our childhood memories of having ice cream in a bun on a hot day. The bread is shaped into a cone to get that perfect balance of bread and ice cream.
Location: 42,Lebuh Leith,George Town
