Johor Bahru: Sangkaya, Nuts About Coconuts!


I literally ran towards Sangkaya. I think. Or at least I mentally did. They declare 'Nuts About Coconuts' in their shopfront, and I knew we're going to be best friends forever. Sorry Replacement (aka. my favourite cafe in this vicinity), the last bit of my stomach space goes to my new love.

Seriously, this place is right up my alley. And probably yours too: listen to this...
Signature (4 scoops of ice-cream, 3 toppings) - RM9.90
Cup (3 scoops of ice-cream, 1 topping) - RM6.90
Cone (1 scoop of ice-cream, topped with coconut flakes) - RM2.90
Coconut Ice Cream
Cha Yen Ice Cream
Matcha Ice Cream
Chendol (beverage) - RM9.90
Real Coconut Shake - RM8.90

This is the first time I literally want to order the entire menu. There is nothing more tailor-made to my tastebuds than this.
We ordered two coconut waters, and a signature matcha ice-cream. Sprinkle the toppings yourself, they instructed. Is that a secret hint of 'put as much as you want'? I guess so... We got to choose from 7 options: coconut flakes, roasted peanuts, cereal, cornflakes, sweet corn, kidney beans, chocolate sauce.
It was splendid. The artisanal ice-cream is the premium sort, even though it comes at such a lovely, reasonable price-tag, and I got 3 toppings while at it. Do I recommend you to make a stop here? Don't ask me silly questions... :) Well, after you hit up Replacement, of course. Every single time I'm in Johor I am so incredibly happy, if you haven't been around here, go this weekend (though Sunday evenings are not recommended). Will be back for more JB posts very soon. :)
