New State Ice Cream & Popcorn, Mount Austin

If you have been to Mount Austin, you will realized the outrageous amount of restaurants and cafes here. Sometimes, you don't even know which one to choose from even for a simple ice cream. In the end, I randomly chose an ice cream parlor which is known as New State which is located at the first floor. The environment in this cafe is quiet since not many patrons that have at that time especially they are located at the first floor. Normally, we only look for anything that is on the ground floor.
As for us, it doesn't matter if is first floor or ground floor, as long they serve good food, we will be there.
Dragon Breath Popcorn @RM7.90
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - Their specialty is not just ice cream but popcorn too. This is the popcorn infused with nitrogen in it which brings a cold sensation to the popcorn. You need to eat it fast because the nitrogen will make the popcorn turn stale very fast. If you have never tried a cold popcorn before, you must try this.


Irish Dark Chocolate Ice Cream @RM16.90
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - The bitter taste is stronger than the light alcohol in it. The chocolate is not too sweet at all which will makes you queasy sometimes. It comes with a bagel which is not that impressive.


Red Wine @RM16.90
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - I prefer the red wine more than the dark chocolate because this has the visible red wine taste which is so unique and it was the first time I have tasted red wine inside an ice cream. It is truly incredible experience. The crispy puff taste much better than the bagel. It is so soft and crispy.


Overall, this is not a bad ice cream parlor to visit at all. The price might be a little higher but compare to their competitor around the area, their price is still consider as reasonable. Hopefully they can last.

Total Damage: RM41.70

Tamarind Springs @ Jalan TAR, Ampang

Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 3/5 - It is also known as their signature Symphony of Starters, which takes you across the breadth of Indochinese cuisine with Vietnamese shrimp crystal rolls, lemongrass prawns, Cambodian-style deep-fried shrimp cakes and minced chicken on cinnamon sticks. All served with a variety of piquant sauces. The plate is just nice for 2 pax but the price is too expensive for that small portion.

Outlook: 3/5 Creativity: 5/5 Taste: 4/5 Price: 3/5 Overall: 3/5 - If you think that coconut soup should be a milky soup, then you are wrong. This is a chicken tomyam clear soup with coconut meat in it. Very delicious and creative way to make it. The coconut meat is the highlight of the entire soup. It just gave the soup an extra coconut fragrance in it and of course, they are edible. Do not worry, the soup is not too spicy.

Magnum Cafe @IOI City Mall, Putrajaya

Outlook: 5/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 4/5 - It contains of cashew meringue, Mascarpone cream, honey balsamic cream served with white chocolate dipped vanilla Magnum topped with freeze dried raspberries and fresh strawberries. My suggestion is to mix them all together including the ice cream itself otherwise by eating the ice cream alone will be too sweet. Once you mixed them all together, the magic comes. The sensational taste of creamy, crunchy, a little sourish kick and sweetness combining all together to create a wonderful ice cream dessert. Definitely is a must order dessert when you are there.
