While in Mecca from early last November until the first week of December to perform Hajj, GiLoCatur fell in love with ice cream. Yeap, you read it right, ice cream. GiLoCatur had tasted manjo wa halib flavoured icream (manggo and milk) as you can see in below picture a couple of times. Its price is just only three KSA (Kingdom of Saudi Arabia) riyals.
So, when GiLoCatur knew about Ice Room from Mazidul's blog (he is a TV3 personality and a blogger), GiLoCatur went to the ice cream restaurant located near Kota Damansara's Giants hypermarket to check it out. Mmmmmmm .... to GiLoCatur's satisfaction, Ice Room is the best place to have and enjoy ice creams in Malaysia. The following three different kinds of ice creams that GiLoCatur's family had on 18th December night before the final day of National Junior Chess Championship (NJCC) are the proof.
GiLoCatur ordered Mango Pomelo Snow Ice which costs RM 7.90, a reasonable price for GiLoCatur because it has delicious and yummie taste. The important fact is that GiLoCatur can get the replacement for the ice cream that GiLoCatur had in Mecca.
Fahim, GiLoCatur's youngest son, ordered the above ice cream. If not mistaken, the ice cream name is Passion Fruit Snow Ice (item #1008) while his elder brother, Fikri, had below ice cream. If you like it, you should order item #1004 - "Nut Case" Peanut Snow Ice.
As you can see from the above ice cream menu, there are more than ten different types of ice creams that you can select at the Ice Room. For ice cream, it has two categories (like in chess tournaments eh! LOL) - the specials and the fresh fruit snow ice series. Not only you can have ice cream but also other types of food such as the variety of local delights, spaghetti and western delicacies.
GiLoCatur impresses with its nice and beautiful decoration. The owner really knows how to attract customers and make the place appealing to visit. Another commendable feature of the restaurant is its children playground. Surely, it is very beneficial and a plus factor for parents with small kids. It is located upstairs at the first floor.
... appealing to the kids and teenagers ...

The ICE ROOM owners are Datuk Razali Mohd Daud and his "familiar face" wife, Datin Faridah Kassim. As GiLoCatur can recall, she is a TV dramatist in few decades ago. She welcomed GiLoCatur and family graciously while we entering the restaurant. Meanwhile her daughter heart-warmingly briefed about different types of ice creams in the menu when GiLoCatur and family made the order. GiLoCatur believes that Ice Room just opened in early November will be very popular and attract many customers for its delicious and tasty ice creams and first class service at very reasonable price. Keep it up!
