Baskin Robbins

Baskin Robbins ice cream shop

Baskin Robbins is one of the most popular ice cream stores worldwide. They have many chain stores around Kuala Lumpur, including in most malls like Suria KLCC, Pavilion, and Avenue K. The ice cream chain is famous for serving some of the most unique flavors you can’t find in other ice cream shops.

If you’re looking for variety, they’ve got it! From unusual but juicy combinations like Pineapple Papaya and Strawberry Dragonfruit to a burst of flavors like the Rainbow Sherbet and Cotton Candy, your sweet tooth will be satisfied.

Did you notice that the pink part of their logo says 31? This refers to their offering of 31 different ice cream flavors. Next time you see a Baskin Robbins, go on and count the number of flavors in their shop.

TIP: If you’re living in Malaysia, make sure you download the Baskin Robbins app. We only did this a couple of weeks ago and I really do not want to know how many coupons we have missed out on.

Frost N Bites

This is a case of “Why didn’t we try this before?”. Frost N Bites serves some of the most delectable gelatos in the city. 

We went to their branch in Pavilion Bukit Bintang and had the dark chocolate, the apple & pear sorbet, and the chocolate mint chip, which were all so good and refreshing. 

They also serve gelato popsicles, which are available in many flavors. And be on the lookout for their limited edition flavored gelatos, which usually come out on special holidays. 

If you’re craving authentic Italian gelato, Frost N Bites serves them in various flavors and with natural ingredients. Their best-sellers are Durian, Pistacchio, and Tiramisu.
