37 degree !!
That was what I read on the temperature displayed on my car dashboard when I drove out for lunch. Ouch… that is painful. Not to mention, it is those types of heat where you feel as if the ray are burning tiny holes into your body.
No wonder I have been having sleepless night lately. Even with the air-con set to the coldest and blasting away was useless. I felt like I am inside an oven bakes alive. I was half tempted to just soak myself in the bathtub and sleep there. (Sadly, it was just my imaginary hope, for I own no bathtub – sigh…)
So, for lunch 2 days ago, my brother decided that anywhere with air-con is no longer sufficient. He told me there’s only ONE place to go for lunch. Since I am usually the less fussy eater, I let him decide. After some quick direction, we reach our destination.
It is a tall green building opposite the Giant supermarket in Kota Damansara.
The name of the restaurant is ICE ROOM. (I like it already)
We walked into the restaurant which was relatively colder than some air-conditioned restaurant we been to but no where near ice temperature. This restaurant actually serves shaved ice.
They have wide selection of flavoured ice. Apart from the normal fruity ice, they also have some really interesting flavour like the black sesame ice, peanut ice, bubur chacha ice, Yam ice, red bean ice and etc. Most of them are priced at around RM 7.90 – 9.90 (which is a little steep for just ice) but, on a HOT day – I am not complaining.
After drooling over the selection, I finally settle on bubur chacha ice. It was not very authentic. I think it tasted a little like vanilla. It would have been better if they drench it with some coconut milk.
My brother and colleague ordered the passion fruit ice and mango pomelo ice.
Now these are really nice… yumm.
It was definitely refreshing especially on a hot day like that. I would definitely go back there again for another try… maybe the black sesame the next round. :p
and thankfully, it POUR yesterday. I finally had a GOOD night sleep yesterday… yay !
