Perpetual South Korean excitement (and fangirling) meant having to check out the newly opened Milkcow!
Spread out over most of East Asia and slowly spreading across the US, Milkcow has opened their second store in the Middle East at the Grand Trident Mall – JBR, the first being in Egypt.
As for their ice cream they only have 1 flavor – milk soft serve (dense but not heavy), which is garnished with an array of toppings. From 100% organic honeycomb from Australia (which is what they’re famous for) to dates (a special for the region) and even candy floss :O Their toppings leave you floored for choice and choosing what to order becomes a battle (I was battling between macao dream and black pearl).
I ended up with the macao dream, soft and creamy ice cream topped with almond flakes and a macaron flavor of your choice (mine was caramel)! #delicious
I also couldn’t stay away from arabian date which is a special flavor from this region. This flavor came about after the owner saw what a big impact the date has on desserts here specifically milkshakes and wondered how it would do on Milkcow’s soft serve – let’s just say I’m not sharing!
The milky honey also caught my eye – plain soft serve topped with natural liquid honey. Sometimes the simple joys in life are best.
Although, the only complaint I’d have is that the toppings are only on the top of the ice cream and disappear quite fast, having some in the middle would be a good idea. I did notice some bottom layering chocolate sauce for other orders though.
We left Milkcow with a sugar high and new ice cream place for our sugar fix! Btw they’re also having a competition where you get to build your own ice cream and your creation will be submitted to be put on the menu for a limited time and you get to win a month;s worth of ice cream – can’t get sweeter than that (unless you opt for the milky honey).
Disclaimer: I was invited to the opening but as always my opinions are honest and unbiased.
