This is our first stop: Bentong. (I have never been here before!)
When in Bentong, you have to try the famous Ice Cream Parlour, KOW PO.
Kedai Kopi Warung Ais Krim KOW PO.
Address: No. 2, Bentong Heights, Pahang, 28700 Bentong, Malaysia
We peered at this framed picture of the menu on the wall.
From the many stuck-on revision of prices, you can guess that it has also fallen victim to GST issues.
We did not know that sitting next to the menu selection was the boss himself who saw us undecided as to what to choose so he recommended the following for usNumber 1: Kow Po signature ice kacang at RM4.50, it must have been even cheaper than that, looking at the new stuck on price tag.
And No 8: double Ice cream Special at RM7.00
He personally went to the counter to place the orders for us and supervised the preparation too.
...while we took more photos of the ice cream concoctions of the wall.
His accolades, visitors and newspaper features and cuttings.
He said: good!! We said....Very Good!!!
Here comes our double scoop special
and our ice kacang with ice cream
We look so cute ya, 2 oldies behaving like teens hanging out at the milk bar.
Boss says he uses real milk and cream and has perfected the art of homemade ice cream.
Ice cream was incredibly smooth, rich, thick and delicious.
I don't know, he seemed to like us and came trotting over with an extra scoop of chocolate flavoured ice cream on the house!
He ran off bashfully after giving us the free scoop! I did not even manage to get his name.
Back behind the counter and he was camera shy all of a sudden!
Then he came over to talk to us again.
See? our double ice cream has become triple ice cream.
There is a giant GO BENTONG poster hung in the shop.
Go Bentong Campaign sounds like an interesting event...it popularises a town like Bentong whose claim to fame must be through the notorious Bentong Kali.
(you can google the infamous and tragic gangster Bentong Kali or Kalimuthu if you are interested)
The Boss of Kow Po is made famous with his image on the bunting.
So we enjoyed our smooth creamy home made ice cream with a bonus dollop of choc scoop and free ice water in aluminium tankards.
