Whether you’re having a bad day or just want to party, one thing comes to mind: ICE CREAM! Ask anyone and they’ll probably tell you that anytime is the best time for comforting desserts.
To celebrate Ice Cream Day in July, foodies are invited to sample the most drool-worthy frozen desserts. At Pavilion Bukit Jalil, you’ll find everything from ice cream and waffles to bingsu and fro-yo.
Although Baskin-Robbins is best known for its line of 31 ice cream flavors to choose from (such as Strawberry Cheesecake and Jamoca Almond Fudge), customers also frequent the American ice cream brand for its ice cream milkshakes, including the Classic Chocolate, Very Berry Strawberry, and mint chocolate chips. Since Merdeka is approaching, Baskin-Robbins will introduce a brand new Cendol Blast ice cream milkshake.

There is no set way to enjoy ice cream. You can also get creative and jazz it up by pairing it with root beer, or enjoying it on a waffle! As the first fast food restaurant to open in Malaysia (in 1963), A&W serves the signature RB float (root beer float) topped with creamy vanilla ice cream. We also love it when we enjoy the warm and crispy waffle with ice cream accompanied by a strawberry or chocolate sauce. Have you tried the brand new Choco Dino waffle or sundae? It’s just as good!
