The taste of the ice cream is very distinctive and different from the branded ice cream that you usually bought at mini market. The texture is rather thick, so it doesn't melt easily. While the sprinkling of the beans tastes sweet and savory. For ice cream fans, you should come to Tropik Pasar Baru!
