Alcoholic Gelato @KopiBar, Centrepoint BU. Super cheap & good!

At a most obscure corner in an already little known nor high traffic shopping complex Centrepoint, Kopi Bar is a little gem of an eatery that deserves more patronage than it has currently.

Truth to be told, myself wouldn’t have given this place a second glance if I hadn’t read about their ALCOHOLIC gelato. Yup, you read right. In this era of decadent desserts, imported expensive gelatos & innovative “ice cream” such as Tutti Frutti & Kindori (Read about the cempaka blast frozen ice cream HERE), this charming unassuming kopitiam cum bar’s winning ace (for me at least) is their unique homemade gelato infused with alcohol.

On my first visit, my gelato came sprinkled with these multicoloured rice sprinkles. I spent half the time splitting out the offending artificially sweet stuff while trying to enjoy the distinctive taste of the gelato. Lesson learnt: Ask them to hold those hundreds & thousands sprinkle next time. And why the hell would anyone put hundreds & thousands on something so “adult” as alcoholic gelato??

Clockwise from top leftJamaica Rum with Raisins, Cherry Brandy Kirsch & Danish Royal Stout with Carlsberg.

The initial hiccup aside, the gelato was loveeeeelyy! My favourite is the Stout one (a bitter start on the tongue which finishes with subtle carlsberg body), followed closely by the Rum & Raisins (rum bloated raisins & swirls of rum aftertaste in the mouth with each spoonful is absoutely bliss !). I would go as far as to say it’s better than Haagen Daaz’s Rum & Raisins though some of my friends didn’t agree. That’s fine, everyone’s tastebuds differs right? 😉

The intriguing Cherry Brandy Kirsch. All of us failed in our quest seeking the suitable adjectives to describe this. Sweet? Uuhh….not quite. Berry tasting? Hmm..a bit. Creamy? Er..not really.  Ok la, I shall it put it as “Complex, subtle tasting & alcoholic with reminisce of berries”.

It’s RM3/scoop and RM5 for two scoops.  On my first visit, Joe Cho, Kopi Bar director said take-away portion of the ice cream is available after CNY so addicted me went again yesterday with some friends (who agreed the gelato was really delightful) & came away with a litre for RM15. If you would like to buy the whole tub, it’s RM70-. Call Joe in advance to ensure availability.

    Glad you like it as much as I do! Funny, they never did put rice sprinkles on my orders from the very first time. As you can see from my pics that it comes “clean”, I never had to tell them to hold the toppings as there was never any given.

  6. SimpleGirl

    must try! esp must introduce to frens that love alcohol…

  7. allie

    I never like multi- coloured rice sprinkles on top of my ice cream or gelato! Spoil the ice cream nia.

    I think this Kopibar is closed because their outlet in Centrepoint, Bandar Utama, can’t be found in Foursquare.
