When it comes to dessert, nothing compares to the most delicious summer treat on the planet: ice cream.
There are very few people in the world who don’t like ice cream; the rest of us are constantly looking for ways in which we can really get the best kind of ice creams and find new things to try on a regular basis.
For those that fall into the latter category, there’s a gorgeous new food trend that you want to get on board with. Bonus? These ice creams are totally Insta-worthy.
This particular café is famous for its desserts. Aside from serving freshly made desserts, Shirokuma also manages to create the cutest forms of dessert, including ice creams. After successfully creating an Instagram trend with its cotton candy dessert last year, it is currently famous for its Elephant Chibi Parfait, which resembles – what else? – a cute elephant. With white vanilla and Oreos as decoration, no wonder customers are drooling over this cutesy dessert.
Living up to its name, North Pole is serving ice-cold ice creams that go down a treat in Jakarta’s hot weather. Rich with milky ingredients, this dessert parlor offers a wide variety of ice cream variants, from the basics like chocolate and vanilla, to more advanced flavors like Summer Breeze and Thai Iced Tea. Focusing on presentation, North Pole ice cream comes in various designs, from baby chick-inspired forms to cute teddy bears.
Japanese-inspired desserts are becoming more and more in demand, and it’s probably one of the reasons Shirayuki has been doing so well in the dessert industry. Here, customers can choose their favorites not only based on flavors, but also various cute forms. From chicken shapes to piggies and frogs, minions and snowmen, the ice creams in Shirayuki deserve a well-angled picture on your Instagram post.
Still revolving around Japanese dessert, Sumoboo is famous for its Kakigoori, a shaved ice dish that is molded into various cute forms. From teddy bear Kakigoori to teddy bear ice cream cones, Sumoboo's cold desserts boast a fun experience for sweet-toothed customers.
Another new ice cream dessert cafe in the Pantai Indah Kapuk area in North Jakarta is Korean dessert and ice cream cafe, Pungopang. Its signature menu is the homemade ice cream served with fish-shaped pancake cones, with four flavors of ice cream to choose from, including Taro, Green Tea, Dark Choco and Horlicks. The fact that the fish cone is made from waffle batter instead of mochi makes the flavor and texture of the dessert champion. (kes)
