It’s been a while since I’ve a Eat Review at Don’t Panik! So, it’s nice to be back! Bentong is a quaint little (or not so little) town along the Karak highway or East Coast Expressway (ECE). I was surprised to find that it does boast an impressive number of ice-cream dessert shops for its population size. One explanation could be that a diary farm is located nearby. Anyways, the ice-cream shops here do sell the popular “sundaes” but their specialty is something more original (or rojak which means mixed from all over) depending on how you look at it. They have the usual ice-kacang which usually has nuts, beans and shaved ice but with the addition of fresh fruits. Then you add in cendol and top it off with home-made ice-cream. The ice-cream is not as smooth or creamy as Haagen Daz or Baskin Robbins but is quite a bit less sweet. It also boasts a slightly thicker taste and is more fragrant. This place is Kedai Kopi Kow Pow and it is said that there’s a good nasi lemak available in the morning but sells out quickly. That is also true of their ice-cream and note that tour buses and a lot of culinary adventurers to stop by so flavors do run out fast. They also are able to pack to go so that you can share the ice-cream with others back home. That said, this is a good place to relax and chill out. Of course, we had to do things the wrong way about and have dessert before our lunch!
Kedai Kopi Kow Pow
Off-Highway 8, Jalan Bentong Utama.
It is located in the row of shophouses just after the Shell and Esso station (same side which is your right) when you enter Bentong Town.
