Petai (translation: bitter/stink beans) is infamous for its bitter taste and its long-lasting overpowering odour. It’s very popular in Malaysia. You can eat it as it is with sambal belacan or cook it in spicy sambal and prawns.
While it is widely known as a savoury dish, you can now have it as a sweet treat! How, you may ask? FROZEN by Ken has whipped up petai flavoured ice cream! With a speciality in artisanal flavours, the local ice cream brand has flavours such as kaya toast and eis batu campur in their repertoire.
But the petai ice cream is by far the wackiest Malaysian-infused flavour that has ever been made! It is created by infusing fresh petai with vanilla ice cream. We have tried it and it’s definitely an acquired taste. Try it out for yourself! Get it at FROZEN by Ken in Paradigm Mall Petaling Jaya, Jalan Telawi Bangsar or SS2 Petaling Jaya for RM10.90 per scoop. If you don’t see it displayed, be sure to ask them for it!
