Ice Bowl SS2, PJ – Original Taiwanese Desserts

The current desserts fad; or more specifically ice-based desserts is insane.

ice bowl ss2 PJ-06

Though I’m not a fan of the “mango lolo ” , snow ice or taiwanese desserts like Snowflakes, I find myself unable to avoid it, especially so when you’re out with friends, for it has been become a routine (almost like a yumcha culture now), to head to Snowflakes for the after-meal chat.

Eventually I got addicted to the ICE.
Yes, ice. Especially after a long or scorching hot day, a nice icy & sweet dessert does help to cool the system/temper down. Truth to be told, I don’t really fancy the toppings, though I admit that the beans, taro balls & peanuts, sweet potato etc is pretty nice. But it was really the flavoured ice that got me hooked.

I have always lamented that there is no Snowflakes within the 5 km vicinity of my home & wondered why isn’t there any such outlet in the congested SS2 commercial area.

Hence imagine my glee when I found a “Snowflake copy” outlet newly opened in SS2, along  Jalan SS2/63 (same row as KTZ). I hopped over as soon as I could, and while I was slightly disappointed that the prices were not lower; I was pleased that the desserts here tasted marginally better.

It’s hard to actually describe the differences but I’ll try. For starters, the ice seems finer. And there are subtly more pleasant flavours in my overall bowl of Ice Bowl.

To give them credit, the menu is not 100% similar. Ice Bowl has their own signatures such as the egg pudding which was a nice option from the usual beans/taro/pearls.
Another is their SAFE EGGS – which is used in their egg pudding as well as the RAW egg that you will get if you order the Special Moonlight Milky Ice RM6.00.

Raw egg!

To allay your fears about contamination, Ice Bowl only uses these “SAFE EGG”s, but don’t put the blame on me should anything goes awry with your tummy! Haha..

Ice Bowl’s menu.

The concept of the orders are the same; choose a base for the ice – which is grass jelly or green bean ice, then pick your toppings from the A-F  combo.

Set A: Taro + Red Bean +Pearl

Set B: Green Bean + Lotus Seed + Pearl

Set C: Sweet Potato + Barley + Pearl

Set D: Black Glutinous Rice + Kidney Bean + Pearl

Set E: Peanuts + Red Bean + Pearl

Another Ice Bowl special is the brown sugar base, and you can choose up to 4 toppings for the price of RM6.90/bowl.

Next is their Soya Tauhu series; which nothing new when compared to Snowflakes. Still, I would sample it soon to check out on the bean curd texture. Perhaps that would be another post.

For HOT desserts, Ice Bowl offers a small selection of Black Glutinous Rice & Red Bean combos.

This is the Green Jelly Ice (mung bean flavoured based ice) Green Bean + Cream + Set Toppings. RM6.50
I find this a bit filling, as it is green mung bean based ice and not empty flavoured ice per se.

You can opt to have it with the cream too.

Special Moonlight Milky Ice RM6.00 – (Safe Egg Yolk + Red Bean + Cream )
I personally find ONE yolk a bit little, and for my next bowl I certainly would ask for double yolks! Hahah.. What changes the dessert is the added creaminess from the yolk; think sweet & icy & creamy all in one spoonful. Bliss! :P

So there you have it. Another Taiwanese desserts place to check out.

Next I’m going to have to try ZenQ (Sunway Pyramid) & UFO, (also SS2) for comparison! Who’s with me?? :P

Below: Brightly lit & spacious seating space (unlike ahem.. a similar outlet that’s so cramped).

ice bowl ss2 PJ-11

Roomy, open area for payment & dessert pick-up counter.

I liked the fact that all the ingredients are displayed at the counter & you can watch while your orders are being prepared.

    ee how is safeggs not an ordinary egg! Rebecca you’ve been eating so many weird foods lately lol.

    1. rebeccasaw

      LOL! I have haven’t I??
      Errm.. maybe the egg is pasteurised in a more stringent environment & is specifically targeted for raw consumption?? Heheh

      Anyway, would you eat it raw with the ice bowl??

  2. Benson Leng

    Wau… The egg part seems very adventurous and “dangerous” LOL!!! :yahoo: :wacko:

    1. rebeccasaw

      Hey Benson!
      I challenge you! Come we go eat a bowl each! 😛

  3. Michelle chin

    people may hate me for this but the desserts here looks so much better than the ones at snowflake!

    1. rebeccasaw

      It does doesn’t it???
      But there are still some of my friends who are hard-core “Snowflakers”!!

  4. nikel

    Nice.. have to try it very soon :good:

  5. Chong

    Nice location although I seldom go to SS2. Hehe. I bet there’ll be some crowd from KTZ due to overflow effect. And that egg yolk in a cold dessert seems a lil too bizarre to me. Haha

  6. Sean

    oooo, i wasn’t even aware of an ice-based desserts craze! i’ve heard of snowflake, but i always thought it was more of a beverage place. but any dessert with an uncooked egg in it sounds tempting enough to try! 😀

    1. rebeccasaw

      Yup! So will I be seeing you in SS2 soon? :p

  7. Augustdiners

    Ohhh I’m absolutely nuts about snowflakes but this one might just drive me insane since I have a thing wit pudding desserts! Can’t wait to try woohoo!

    1. rebeccasaw

      I find Snowflakes too sweet for me!
      The pudding was ok, eggy, wobbly.. not very strong taste of egg tho..

  8. Thristhan

    They seem to be very humble at the portion of ingredients that they give. And for that price, it’s pretty affordable.

    1. rebeccasaw

      All these Taiwanese desserts places are priced at RM6.50 -+
      I wish they start having a price competition soon ;p
      Hehe.. better for our wallets!

  9. Isaac Tan

    looks nice. Not a big fan of desserts though, but nice share! “I am not an ordinary egg” either! 🙂

    1. rebeccasaw

      Well, I heard ZenQ was really bad?? 😛

  13. Simon Har

    quite similar concept to Snowflake but the egg yolk is special! :wacko:

    1. rebeccasaw

      Yup yup!! At least it is not entirely copycat!

    1. rebeccasaw

      Snowflakes has more than one competitor!! 😛

  14. stefanie

    I prefer this place than snowflakes.going to try zen q soon

    1. rebeccasaw

      Same !! I prefer here too! But I heard that ZenQ is really bad. Do let me know as I don’t go Sunway that often and might not have the chance to try it out

  15. David Tee

    U should try ZenQ desserts at sunway Pyramid. is worth a try.. nice.. ! my current fav

    1. rebeccasaw

      Really? I have heard not so great reviews from my fellow bloggers about ZenQ though… wht do you like about it?

      1. David Tee

        My all time fav is their red bean grass jelly.. And alwiz take away their barley series for my mom.. ^^

      2. rebeccasaw

        hmmm red bean grass jelly.. Don’t think I tried that before. Time for a re-visit! 😛

  16. Lisa Choi

    Oh wow there’s so many new dessert outlets to try out! Have tried Snowflakes, Ice Bowl, UFO and also ZenQ! But I guess my fave pick would still have to be ZenQ.. Haha I may be biased in taste but I think its much better! 😀 Love their Pearl Milk Tea too.. yummm…

    1. rebeccasaw

      ZenQ is your fav??? I’m surprised. The bloggers that went there few weeks back told me it’s not really good ;P

      Hahaha… maybe i should drop in ZenQ soon…

  17. CS

    Hi, Icebowl got new look now and more new desserts, amber jelly, mango ice, etc. very nice!
    See their fb.

    1. rebeccasaw

      Oh really! I wonder if they have that Sandakan dessert! I so wanna try that!

  18. vs38322

    Buy one free one promotion finish?

      1. vs38322

        last two week buy one free one any item promotion.But i went yday no more promotion.

      2. rebeccasaw

        Oh I didnt know about that!

  19. kit

    So upset by the dishonest service. Y to have promotion when u r not proud of it.
    The cashier never tell me that they have buy 1 free 1 promotion n let me spend my groupon @ normal price. Till the end I saw a leaflet half hidden at the counter n asked. Then only he told me abt the promotion.
    So upset….some more go so frequent.

    1. rebeccasaw

      Oh? Well, if there are 2 promo happening at the same time, and since you’re already using your groupon promo, I doubt you can qualify for the “buy one free one”.
