TFros (冰天雪地) @ Armenian Street, Georgetown, Penang.

What's a better way to cool off and enjoy a scoop of creamy frozen confections with freshly baked Waffles? But TFros, a relatively new Ice Cream parlor at Armenian Street decided to be a little playful on the flavors and combination. It churns out Muffle, a combination of Muffin and Waffle or in other words, Muffin but in the shape of Waffle. Muffle-aside, this Ice Cream cafe offers creamy sweet treats in decadent flavors; notable ones include Black Doris Plum, Passion Fruit and Lemon Curd, Honey Comb, Rose & French Vanilla, Pulut Hitam etc. It does not serve any mains here, merely a dessert-focused menu centering Ice Creams. TFros has a rather snug space (3 tables that seat up to 12 pax only) so if you wish to visit in a big group, please do make sure you call in and make reservation. 

O'Gao- Charcoal Muffle + Pulut Hitam Ice Cream (Rm 16)

Parfait- Rose & French Vanilla Ice Cream + Hojicha + Granola (Rm 15)

O'Gao is one of the proud creations of TFros- Pulut Hitam Ice Cream (Black Glutinous Rice) sprinkled with desiccated Coconut served atop of Charcoal-infused Muffle with Pulut Hitam dressing. The Ice Cream was quite close to the real Pulut Hitam dessert, probably the infusion of Santan (Coconut Cream) that grants the frozen treat its creaminess; it was alright on its own but even better with the introduction of the Black Glutinous Rice for a chewier and more satisfying bite. Quite a contrary on the texture of Muffin, the Muffle was in fact light and crisp... probably a little too light that it shattered everywhere at the nudge of the fork. But we unanimously agreed that the flavor combo was good.

Pile your favorite flavors up and customize your own Parfait- diners may choose 2 preferred Ice Cream flavors with suitable toppings and make it your own version of Parfait. We had Rose & French Vanilla Ice Cream and Hojicha with Granola. The Rose & French Vanilla flavor was amazing, it was bold but not monotonous. Hojicha on the other hand, paled in comparison; with Granola, the Parfait was way too sweet and surpassed my sugar tolerance level. We struggled to finish the Parfait (as it was saccharine sweet).

  1. How do you pronounce the name? I love pulut hitam, wouldn't mind giving that a try.

  2. They should use white plate so the black waffle can more stand out in presentation :P
