Something short and sweet to end the week with - Matcha Ice Cream from Yokomon. I saw this particular Japanese brand of ice-cream during the recent FHM event in KL Convention Centre. They have started selling this here at the Curve's concourse area as a special Xmas promotion. It seems their outlet is at Cathay Cineleisure.
I felt it was quite pricey for about RM6.90. However, it is interesting to see how the machine works. Frozen ice cream in a small round tub is taken out and placed in this machine. The staff will wind this lever at the side and the ice-cream will come out in a soft swirl. I guess there is a mechanism within the machine to convert the frozen ice-cream into a softer version. The texture is nice but I felt the matcha taste was not so strong. Must be my own personal taste as I like my matcha tea to taste quite strong and slightly bitter. Aside from matcha, they also have azuki (red bean), goma (black sesame), daku choko (dark choc), ichigo (strawberry) and ramu reezun (rum raisin).
