There are a few ice cream parlours around with the more famous ones being Baskin Robbins and Swenson’s Ice Cream. Amongst the lesser known is one ice cream parlour called Urban Artisan with roots from the “pearl of the Orient,” Penang, stretching all the way down south to Johor, before reaching Kuala Lumpur.

We recently dropped in for some ice cream to cool down during a very hot and sunny day. The place has a sort of an industrial feel to it with its bare red bricked wall on one side, and cemented wall on the other. The ambience is quite comfortable though. But we were not here for the ambience. We were here for the ice cream.

Urban Artisan serves soft, smooth, creamy, and tasty ice cream. They have over 50 flavours as at time of writing. The ice cream here don’t only taste good, they look good with a variety of soft pastel colours. The flavours are crafted themselves and they have created some unique flavours such the Sea Salt Ice Cream of which is one of their signature ice creams, Salted Golden Egg Yolk, Hokkaido Lavender, Rasberry X Valrhona Chocolate, etc.

I decided to try something out of the ordinary (which is a lot to choose from here) and decided on the Oceanic Sea Salt X Finest Strawberry ice cream. I have had some unique ice cream before that went right off the cliff (nasi lemak ice cream, rendang chicken ice cream are two of them) but this one stood out. It tasted great being not too sweet and a little salty, had smooth and lovely texture, and is soft and creamy. I enjoyed it.
