I have decided to welcome the new year with a post about… Ice Cream! Not just any ordinary ice cream but the first liquid nitrogen ice cream cafe in Kuching, Cloud 99! Situated at Precinct 88, Jalan Song, this cute establishment make fresh ice cream instantly in front of you!
Easy to spot. Just look out for the rainbow and you will find Cloud 99! (Photo credits: Cloud 99 Facebook page)
Cute cafe design. Friendly, fun, welcoming and definitely youthful. You will feel like a kid again when you step in and of course, when you look at their extensive menu! Oh, so many choices and so little time.
What’s your flavor? To be honest, the selection is unlimited. It took us a while to decide what we wanted. In the end, we asked to be surprised. Hahaha.
The decor is simple but fun. A lot of space and that is good.
These KitchenAid mixers are the gateway to ice cream heaven. You will find out why soon.
Cheerful cups to eat ice cream with, it definitely lifts up the spirit.
Their Cloud is really adorable!
Before we proceed with the ice cream, here are some fun facts about Cloud 99!
Now that you have some ideas about Cloud 99, we can talk about how they make their yummy ice cream. Okay, after you’ve chosen a flavor, your ice cream maker will pour it into the mixer along with milk, cream, soya bean or yoghurt and mix it for a while.
Adding the fresh milk… Mmm…
Homemade durian flavor, with real and actual durian in it!
Now, the magic begins. Kids, especially, get so excited at this part of the ice cream making process. Even I was impressed. Sakai. Hahaha.
Here comes the liquid nitrogen!
My nephew and niece couldn’t contain their excitement at this point. They kept on asking for their ice cream!
The extremely cold temperature of -200 degrees celcius instantly freeze the ingredients! Talk about freshly made ice cream!
Once the ingredients are frozen, it will be stirred with a metal scoop to avoid it becoming harden.
Almost there! Just stirring and scooping out the goodies!
We were spoiled with so many flavors today. Trust me. I was on cloud 9. Or in this case, 99! Hahaha.
The moment you have been waiting for is here… Cloud 99 presents…
Creme Brule with Kit Kat topping
This is just ridiculously delicious. It is creamy but not too creamy since they use fresh milk instead of cream. You still can request for cream but this is good enough already. This is their large portion. Ice cream always tastes good when shared. Hehehe.
Banana with Cornflakes topping
The banana taste is subtle but it is fresh and delicious nonetheless. Combined with the cornflakes, it is almost like eating banana split.
Durian Ice Cream
Hands down the best durian ice cream, EVER! This flavor is seasonal but if it is available, go for it. You won’t regret it!
Blue Lagoon Yoghurt with marshmallow topping
Apart from ice cream, they also make yoghurt and non dairy ice cream for those who are lactose intolerant. My niece loves this very much. Fun, tangy flavor!
Popcorn Ice Cream
Absolutely a delight. If you are a fan of popcorn, this will be your everything.
Here at Cloud 99, they also serve egglettes. They are like waffles or the kaya buns you usually get but without the kaya.
Available in different flavors. Taste even better with ice cream… Mmm…
One of the owner of Cloud 99, Audrey Voon, came up with the idea of this liquid nitrogen ice cream cafe because she and her sister wanted to find a place where they serve freshly made ice cream. At the same time, they wanted to do a different kind of business. Hence, Cloud 99 was born. It is a hobby with a passion. Ladies and ice cream. Inseparable. Hehehe.
The lovely lady behind the brand; Audrey Voon.
It is the first liquid nitrogen ice cream cafe in Kuching! What an achievement. After trying out their ice cream, I now understand what they mean by fresh compared to stored ice cream. You’ll never know how old that stored ice cream really is and nothing is more healthier than freshly made ice cream with fresh and healthy ingredients. Their ice cream are made without sugar and use only premium flavorings.
So, what are you waiting for? Go on and visit Cloud 99 and check out their many flavors now!
