The Breakfast (cereal milk ice cream topped with caramelised cornflakes and a macaron shell, RM12).
Fluffy (cereal milk ice cream with cotton candy and Himalayan sea salt, RM10).
The Damansara Utama area is ripe with cafés like The Good Batch, Wondermilk and Fat Spoon. When you’re done with brunch, head down to Softsrve for dessert. The minimalist Japanese-inspired decor is a far cry from the usual twee ice cream parlours. And Softsrve's 'less is more' philosophy also reflects in the only two flavours they have for now: cereal milk and deep chocolate.
With interesting toppings like popcorn, honeycomb, cotton candy, chocolate chips and truffles available, the thought of overloading your cup with spoonfuls of everything is a tempting one, but alas, you can’t. Co-founder Redmond Ho assures us that this is for our own good, as they want to give customers the best combination by pairing ingredients that complement each other. These toppings are also carefully sourced from what they consider the best of its kind. For example, the popcorn comes from Garrett, the honeycomb from New Zealand, and the truffles are homemade.
If you're up to date on ice cream flavours around the world, you'll know that cereal milk soft serve is nothing new; the team was inspired by New York’s Momofuku Milk Bar. In KL however, Softsrve is the first to have such a flavour and it works well with the Breakfast (RM12), cereal milk ice cream topped with caramelised cornflakes and a macaron shell. Also, don’t worry about having your ice cream melt halfway; each cup is served in another cup of dry ice to keep the ice cream from melting (which explains why the cup appears to be smoky in pictures – that's because it is). In other words, this buys you more time to get that perfect #foodporn shot.
For drinks, Softsrve offers teas from Gryphon and sodas that they mix themselves, while plain water is readily available free of charge (bless them). As the ice cream joint is still new, expect the menu to grow in a few months. Look out for churros, cakes and even red velvet ice cream.
