Ice cream factory on weekdays, scoop shop on weekends. After nearly two years of supplying their cult favourite ice cream to cafés around town, Fatbaby finally has a place to call their own, a few steps away from Grafa in SS15. For now Fatbaby is open on weekends only, but founder Hui Ming assures us that they will eventually be open on weekdays.
We visited them on a Saturday, dropping in just after they opened at 2pm. Cheery baby blue walls combined with efficient staff who offer you ice cream samples at every turn make a great recipe indeed. The ice cream menu rotates on a weekly basis, but we hope that the Madagascar vanilla bean, Earl Grey and salted caramel are here to stay. If you come with a group of friends, order Get Stuffed (RM38), where four scoops of ice cream are sandwiched between two waffles, and topped with banana slices and another scoop of ice cream. In a lavish final touch, it’s also drizzled with Fatbaby’s signature salted caramel sauce. Wash down the ice cream with juice by Smooshies.
As the scoop shop only opens on weekends, you’ll find a mix of college kids, families, and the odd expat or two quickly filling up the place, so lingering for too long isn’t an option. Be sure to check Fatbaby’s Facebook page during the week to keep updated on the coming weekend’s flavours and new experiments (on our visit, it was the ice cream sandwich).
