I Scream for Ice Cream @ The Last Polka, The V Cafe, Taylor's Lakeside Campus

The heat has been stifling especially the afternoons before the rain clouds break into a request for Rihanna's Umbrella song. It has been so hot that I've been craving for some cold relief in the form of The Last Polka's ice cream. The dynamic gal power of May Yee and Ee Vee are my go-to gals for innovative flavours that remind me of my good ole school days...Horlicks, Nutella, Teh Tarik and the best ever lusciousness, their new flavour Salted Gula Melaka.
       While I've been indulging in their cool rescue packs available at Jaya One's The Bee, Marmalade's outlets (Mont Kiara and Bangsar) and now Whisk Expresso Bar at Empire Subang, I've never been to their scoop shop. Thus, one weekend we made our pilgrimage there to discover cool epiphany.
         Their scoop shop is located within the trendy and minimalist confines of The V Cafe. Here you get to satisfy all your greedy cravings since they offer you double scoops (RM10.80 for the regular flavours, RM12.80 for premium flavours). Twice the fun I reckon as we both debate on what to pick.  He ends up with his new cool love, the Salted Gula Melaka and a newbie to us , the Coconut Kaffir Lime. I reach for old favourites like Nutella and Horlicks. The whole set up at the cafe is kinda quirky with all those whimsy college touches like a love messageboard and even a shoutout Post-It board. Even though it had a new school feel, there was old school touches with Bon Jovi blaring away on the speakers.
         For those who love the gals' ice-cream, rumour has it (just like how Adele sings it), they're also venturing into the tea business as they'll be supplying tea flavoured ice creams (satu Teh Tarik and one green tea please) to The Tea Republic at Bangsar Shopping Centre. Another great reason to hangout at that cool quiet cafe tucked in one corner at the mall to indulge in some tea madness. I reckon this calls for a revisit to indulge some stay tuned for more cool delights.
         In the meantime, if one can't break into The Last Polka ice cream for emergency cold relief, I guess we should all become vampires...sleep during the hot days and emerge refreshed at night to party away. Not sure about that blood sucking part though but I'm sure you'll figure it out. Catch more pictures in my Flickr set.

You're on a roll! Two posts in one day! :)

Salted gula melaka sounds really good. Wish they had an outlet nearer to me though.

Baby Sumo - it's called a determination to clear the mountain of backlog!

Try Bangsar's Marmalade. That looks like the nearest outlet for you.

I love their Guinness flavour. Haven't tried their Salted Gula Melaka though - must go have a taste soon! :)

boo_licious said...

Life for Beginners - Ah, their Guinness is a good choice. The salted gula melaka one reminds us of ice cendol with just a hint of salt. Hope you get your cool respite from the crazy heat soon.

Michelle Chin said...

Went to The Bee, but had a harrowing experience instead. Did not try the ice-cream, but only the mains,

And a full glass of iced lemon tea on my pants and shoes. Talk about clumsiness.

Ciki said...

We all scream for ICE CREAM! i need some too.. to chase the work stress awayyyyy :P hehe

Ellen Whyte said...

YUM! Love ice-cream. Must check out that campus to see what's there.

boo_licious said...

Michelle - mangosteen is a lot of work though. I do know one lady who makes it though. Am sure it is nice and refreshing as I made it once.

j2kfm - oh no! Poor thing. Sounds like you have no good food karma for that day.

Cumi & Ciki - oops, work stress? No wonder you've been so quiet lately. Hope you get yr ice cream fix soon.

Au&Target - lots more food there there's cafes for the students. Go check it out. No kitty cafes though.
