Fatbaby @ Subang Jaya

After our late brunch @ Morningwood, we proceeded to our next destination for a very late lunch of....drum roll, please...ice cream!!  Oh yeah, ice cream for lunch!  I've heard a lot about Fatbaby's ice cream and had been wanting to try for a while now.  And so, we found ourselves at the doorstep of Fatbaby Ice Cream @ Subang Jaya.

A little history on Fatbaby......founded by Hui Ming, an actuary turned ice cream maker, in 2013.  They make all their ice cream bases from scratch with the freshest and finest ingredients with no artificial flavourings, colourings and preservatives.  Everything that goes into their ice cream is made in-house...and that is what is so great about their all-natural homemade ice creams!

The one in SS15 is their scoop shop but their 100ml pots of ice cream are also available from various cafes and restaurants in the Klang Valley (including Ipoh and Penang).  In fact, quite a few of these trendy cafes use their ice creams in their dessert menu too.  You'll be surprised at just how many cafes are actually doing that.  You may just have eaten Fatbaby's ice cream and not know! ;D

You can ask for a sample taste test (which they'll gladly offer you anyway) before deciding which flavours you want.  On any given weekend, they would usually have about 12 flavours on offer (the menu rotates on a weekly basis).  We started with a classic all-time favourite....Vanilla @ RM8 for a single scoop (RM13 for a double scoop).

They use real vanilla beans for their vanilla ice cream...Madagascar vanilla beans to be exact (not vanilla extracts).  [#Note: From their website, these Madagascar beans have been described as the Queen of vanilla beans.  They scrape all the seeds out and infuse the beans and seeds in their milk and cream mixture overnight to fully extract all the vanilla flavour.  They also use homemade vanilla sugar to double up the vanilla goodness.]  You can see specks of the real vanilla beans all over the ice cream.  It was pure creamy goodness....loved it! :)

Our next flavour, selected by a member of my 'eating party', was the Hazelnut Chocolate @ RM8 for a single scoop. 

The silky smooth, nutty, chocolaty flavour went down well with my friends (or those who like anything nutty and everything chocolaty)!

Fatbaby also offers their ice cream on waffles...a Waffle + Single Scoop is RM12 while a Waffle + Double Scoop costs RM17 or, if you have a big party of ice cream lovers, you can get stuffed (literally) with a Get Stuffed (of 5 scoops of ice cream & 2 waffles) @ RM38. 

So, for our final selection, we went with a Double Scoop Waffle @ RM17 topped with two scoops of ice cream, banana slices and finished with a drizzle of Fatbaby's signature salted caramel sauce.  The waffle was pretty good...with a nice crisp exterior.

For our choice of ice cream flavours, our first selection was Honey I'm Home which is one of their more popular flavours laced with their homemade honeycomb and dark chocolate bits.  If you happen to bite into the pieces of honeycomb, you get a crunch and a sticky-gooey-sweet texture that may prove a tad sweet for some taste buds.  But those who love the sweetness of honeycombs would embrace this.

We went with Lemon Blueberry as our second choice.   Omg, this was absolutely awesome....definitely my favourite flavour of the four we tried!  If you love the sweetness + tartness of blueberries....you've gotta try this.  If you love the fresh, sour and citrusy taste of lemon, you must try this.  In fact, if you have a love for all things tangy, zesty, citrusy with hints of brightness and freshness...then you must have this!  Great for those who don't like their ice creams sweet =)

For a value deal, go for their Classic Trifeca Sundae at RM20 with 3 scoops of ice cream featuring classic flavours of vanilla, strawberry and chocolate (but no swaps allowed), topped with banana slices, crumble pieces and a drizzle of salted caramel sauce. 

You can wash down your ice creams with fresh juices by Smooshies or help yourself to the plain water provided.  Or, if you want even more ice cream, you can have a float with your favourite ice cream dunked in a choice of Coke, Sprite or Root Beer...simple (yet sinful) pleasures!

My Personal Opinion

For me, I loved, loved, loved the blueberry one with a tinge of lemony flavour for a tangy, fresh flavour.  I guess, along those lines, I would probably enjoy those with anything 'berry' like raspberry, strawberry and blackberry.

Their sign at the front says it all...."We make ice cream, 'nuff said"....and they really do make awesome ice creams!  These delectable light-textured treats make you keep wanting more! ;)

If you haven't had Fatbaby's luscious and decadent ice cream...you gotta try.....and soon!!

  5. I have not heard of them. For local home made ice cream I have only heard of polka something. Maybe if I am around this area I will give this ice cream a try. Let me think when was the last time I ate expensive ice cream.
