By Grace Dessert @ Tmn Pelangi, JB

This time I wanna recommend my all time favourite dessert house- By Grace!

This is so far the only dessert house that I will visit repeatedly in JB (except those traditional chinese dessert shops).

The decoration and atmosphere of the shop is very homey, cosy and comfortable. The shop owner has one small corner for their collection of dolls and small toys from their travelling! The desserts here are very special, however a lil bit pricey ^^

The desserts are all house-made, the typical dessert here comes in a set: one scoop of house-made icy cold ice cream and once melting hot lava cake. Take bit of the ice cream and bit of the lava cake, put them together into your mouth! Imagine how the different texture and different temperature of food merging in your mouth. Savour the sweet, cold and warm at the same time!

There are many different favours offered in the menu! It was offered in set which was designed to be matched for the best taste, one ice cream and one lava cake.

The day’s special dish: red date ice cream and lava cake (forgot the flavour of the lava cake)

The special dessert platter with different flavours which costs RM 100++.

The serving of the dessert platter is very special too! It was served on a transparent acrylic board!

( Do you see the blue ice cream? It is sea salt ice cream and it is really salty! Imagine the taste of cold salty ice cream with melting hot creamy lava cake!)

Warakuya Japanese Restaurant 和乐屋 @ JB

I am a frequent customer to Warakuya Japanese Restaurant (和乐屋). Few years ago it was a small restaurant at Pelangi, today it has its branch at sutera. Another new branch is going to be open at Austin.

Love to have lunch or dinner with friends there not just because the food is nice, the atmosphere is good. However, I prefer early reservation due to sometimes, really have to queue for quite some time outside especially during dinner time at the Sutera branch!

They serve hot towel once you sit down at your table. I really appreciate this extra service! Although it is just something small or unimportant, but this hot towel and hot green tea really make me refreshed. Feel that all that tiredness and unpleasant emotions at work are all gone!

sushi

Classic sushi at Warakuya! Cheese and Prawn, Duck and Mango, mentai salmon (forgot whether it is salmon or other ingredient), haha! ^0^

sakae clams

I order this dish everytime I go Warakuya. Steamed clams with wine, erm~ super delicious! (But sometimes it is out of stock if I go too late T^T)

Ice Cream @ “Kate N I Scream” , JB

Another hangout place to go in Johor Bahru!

Ice Cream Specialty Store with an interesting name ” Kate N I Scream”! I scream I scream….~Ice Cream!

Frankly speaking, I am not a crazy fan of ice cream as I do not have a sweet tooth. So unlike other girls, I do not love chocolates, I will only have chocolates  once in a blue moon, and will only take those with bitter taste and higher content of cocoa. I do not love extremely sweet stuff,  Just somehow sometimes still love to taste a bit or a sip of sweet stuff.

###############################################################################

*When girls are in bad mood, a bit of sweet and cold ice cream will help lighten the mood! 

(This is my personal experience, haha! At first I will keep saying I dunwanna eat ice cream and I dun like sweet stuff and get irritated, but after eating, really I feel better in mood! So this is something like magic to cool your girlfriends down, hehe!)

################################################################################

There are varieties of ice creams in Kate N I Scream, from light fruity ones like fruit sorbet, green apple to very rich ones like sticky chocolate and etc. There are several toppings for you to choose as well, my favourites are hazelnuts and super cute gummy bears! This is a self-service ice cream store, you have to choose the package you want such as 1 scoop, 2 scoops or 3 scoops and 2 or 3 toppings at the counter first. After paying, you have to select the ice cream flavours and toppings you would like to have. After your ice cream dish is completed, you gonna have to take it to your seat yourself.

The store is considered as quite spacious as it is divided into indoor and outdoor two sections. The decoration is simple but comfortable so you can sit down and chit chat with the girls or buddies for a long time while having the sweet sweet ice creams.

“Yeah! Gummy Bears!!!!!” I Scream! Lol! 

The display of the ice creams is very cute too! They are placed on a wooden plate with holes! Ice cream and toppings fit into the holes! 

And for all this visual entertainment and environment, the price is not that cheap given the taste and quality of ice cream. The one I had in the picture, 3 scoops plus 2 toppings costs about RM 30.00. The ice cream just taste very common, nothing special. Ice cream from Swensen’s taste generally good (and cheaper), well Baskin Robbin also tastes slightly better. It is noteworthy that there is a small store in City Square, JB on fifth floor next to Action City named XXX Gelato” tastes better than all the above (I cant remember the full name and the exact location, just remember it is somewhere there). Although the price might be similar and no service, no place to sit, no outstanding display, the ice cream really tastes very different especially there is one chocolate flavour which is so rich with a tinge of bitterness, just tastes superb! No seat but you can take your ice cream and wander around the shopping mall, eating while shopping, haha! (Take note that some shops do not allow food and drinks)
