New Homegrown Cold Dessert Shops in Johor Bahru

Along with the fast growing food scene in Johor, many new cold dessert shops are sprouting up all over Johor Bahru. Along with the big crowd of familiar foreign franchises, there is also a small sprinkling of homegrown start ups. These new and small players are holding their own very well, and here're two that I've tried and like.

Cremoso Gelato is the baby of Jeff who works in the financial sector. Jeff's love for gelato - that creamy, smooth and dense Italian ice cream - led him to learn the art of gelato making in Singapore. The next step was to birth his own gelato shop in City Square Mall and before long, Cremoso Gelato was such as hit that another outlet, a kiosk in KSL City Mall, was born.

Cremoso Gelato offers 16 flavours of house made gelato with local flavours such as mango, passionfruit, and of course, the irresistible durian!

Cremoso's star attraction is their "Signature Creations". This is gelato ice cream "fried" with a variety of ingredients such as strawberries and crushed Oreo biscuits on a -18°C cold stone.

Cremoso Gelato's Signature Creations are served in crispy waffle bowls freshly baked at the shop.

Moshi Moshi dessert shop is the brainchild of two young Johor couples who are passionate foodies. Their love for good food even took them to Taiwan to learn how to make traditional ice cream by hand. They were so taken by handmade ice cream that they decided to open their own dessert shop in JB.

Moshi Moshi serves their hand made ice cream on an icy bed of sorbet and garnished with a choice of yam balls, grass jelly, chewy "pearls" and many others. The flavours are based on local fruits such as mango and coconut.

Only 100% real fruit is used in Moshi Moshi. Whenever we visit Moshi Moshi with friends, we always end up with two, if not three rounds of ice cream. Try it. Moshi Moshi ice cream always impresses.

The next time you are craving for a cold dessert, why not give these homegrown cold dessert brands a try?

I firmly believe that taste is subjective and so, warmly welcome differing viewpoints :-D But, I disapprove negative comments that are anonymous or hide behind fake identities. I feel that that is the same as speaking ill of others behind their backs. I look forward to all your comments :-D Thank you. (Date: 18 Dec 2015)
