Best Ice Kacang in Penang

Written by Updated ago

Towering shaved ice dressed in a rich and colourful confection along assorted chewy bites, Ice Kacang packs a jubilant jolt in every mouthful, especially when being kissed by the blistering sun. Bevy ingredients brimming in a bowl – red beans, creamy corn, evaporated milk, splashes of syrup, cincau grass jelly, chewy pearls and scoop of ice cream rounds up the icy treat. Jostle away the “save room for dessert” frame of mind and scarf down frisky feasts below that encourages a hot afternoon should never go wasted.

    Scouring every nook and alley of Georgetown is downright fascinating as each step greets you with imposing historical ruins, beautiful murals, and mouthwatering meals, yet to refresh and rejuvenated, Ice Kacang seems to be the best bet. A stone’s throw away from Fort Cornwallis, Jalil Special Ice Kacang is habitually swamped with hordes of patrons, especially when the sun shows no mercy. Their version of Ice Kacang is absolutely jaw-dropping, with a towering ice glacier liberally loaded with syrups, a dollop of red beans, creamy corn, and scoop of vanilla ice cream sitting on the pinnacle. Certainly justifies the never-ending crowd.
