Have a Blissful Riang Raya with Sangkaya!
The coconut ice cream whizz is back this festive season and is rocking up some local new flavours. Sangkaya is introducing some icy newbies on the block and it’s a feast of ice cream treats like no other. We visited one of the 23 outlets recently and was pleased with its list of new cold desserts.
Joining the festive Blissful Riang Raya mood are duo of Bandung inspired treats. Tuck into Bandung Bliss (RM12.20), creamy and rosy pink, its frozen Bandung flavours of rose enhanced with coconut cream. We adored the smoothness of the ice cream with the classic fragrance of rose, perfect for this festive season.
There’s also Bandung Blitz (RM9.90), the rose bandung smoothie that is thick and luscious. A surprising addition of black grass jelly gave this locally inspired smoothie a lovely textural component and the scoop of Bandung Ice Cream is deliciously sweet and creamy. Topped with lots of whipped cream and finished with generous drizzle of rose syrup, it’s sweet and creamy like our Bandung.
Both Bandung Bliss and Bandung Blitz is available from the 15th of May till the 31st of July.
With our humid and hot weather lately, the Ice Campur (RM10.90) is the perfect icy treat to cool down the heat. Ice Kacang given a Sangkaya twist, you get 2 scoops of Sangkaya’s famous Coconut Ice Cream and 1 scoop of Sangkaya’s new Gula Melaka Ice Cream scooped on a rainbow concoction of coconut flesh, roasted peanuts, sweet corn, cincau, cendol and nata de coco. The sprinkling of desiccated coconut added a nice toasty note to the Ice Campur.
My kind of Ice Kacang… Shiok Giler!

If you haven’t tried Sangkaya’s latest new flavour of Gula Melaka Ice Cream, you need too! Literally hooked on this flavour ever since my first taste, the Gula Melaka Ice Cream tasted like frozen cendol. Adored the luscious richness of caramelized Gula Melaka that is heighten with lush coconut cream. I can’t get enough of this flavour so much that I stocked up tubs of it in my freezer!!
There’s Mango Ice Cream and Kaya Ice Cream on the list too…
More Malaysian inspired treats and this time, it’s Malaysian Toast (RM6.90)! Rather sad looking but never judge a book by its cover cos this one is also delicious. Crispy toast sandwiching thick slices of frozen butter and scoops of Sangkaya’s Kaya Ice Cream proved that even classics can be made better. The cold buttery goodness with toast and creamy kaya ice cream works like a charm in terms of flavours and textures.
Heading West, more goodies appear starting with Fresh Baked Waffles (RM12.90) with 3 scoops of ice cream of your choice. Golden crisp and lightly fluffy waffles is the perfect partner-in-crime with ice creams. Plenty of choices of ice cream to choose from but I personally like the chocolate and gula Melaka.
There’s also Ice Cream Cookiez (RM4.90) for the young at heart. Definitely a childhood treat but elevated to modern times, you get two thick coconut cookies sandwiching your choice of ice cream. Go with Sangkaya’s original Coconut Ice Cream or their new flavour Mango Ice Cream. Either one is equally fresh, creamy and yummy…
There’s also Chocolate Maniac Series featuring Chocolate Divinity (RM12.90) and Chocolate Blitz (RM9.90). Chocolate Divinity features a large dark chocolate cone with Oreo crusted rim is filled with 3 scoops of another new flavour Chocolate Royale Ice Cream, topped with chocolate sauce, peanuts and corn flakes. Chocolate Blitz is dark chocolate coconut milk shake completed with a scoop of Chocolate Royale Ice Cream and whipped Coconut Cream.
Sangkaya has also launched two molten lava cakes. Try the Black Sesame with Salted Egg Molten Cake (RM12.90) or Teh Ijo with Salted Egg Molten Cake (RM12.90). Both comes with a scoop of ice cream. Soft and fluffy warm molten cakes with an oozing filling is definitely made even better with cold ice cream for contrast. Both flavours are decadently rich and creamy.
For best value deals, aim for Best Giler! (RM17.90) or Kiasu Platter (RM32.90). You get a Dark Jumbo Cone with massive scoop of ice cream of your choice and chocolate sauce together with a regular waffle cone of ice cream and Gula Melaka sauce to be shared in Best Giler!. The Kiasu Platter feeds a few at least with a tray of waffle, a molten cake, a pair of cookies and an ice cream waffle bowl.
