Jom Makan : Papa's Coconut Ice Cream @ Pulau Tikus

 Nestled within the serene premises of Wat Chayamangkalaram in Penang lies a hidden gem that has withstood the test of time - Papa's Coconut Ice Cream. With a legacy spanning over three decades, this stalwart has been churning out some of the most delectable coconut ice creams, becoming an integral part of many Penangites' childhood memories.

Passed down through generations, the secret recipe has remained unchanged, capturing the hearts of both the young and the old. The homemade coconut ice cream is creamy, with a rich texture and an unmistakably natural coconut flavour.

The beauty of Papa's lies in its versatility. Whether you're a purist who prefers the unadulterated taste of coconut or someone who likes to jazz things up, Papa's has something for everyone. You can have your ice cream in a cone, cup, sandwiched between slices of bread, or in its most authentic form - served within a coconut shell. To enhance the experience, choose from a variety of toppings - sweet corn, crunchy peanuts, chewy atap-chee, or the exotic shredded dried coconut. Each combination offers a unique taste profile, ensuring a different experience with every visit

So, the next time you're in Penang, make it a point to visit Wat Chayamangkalaram. Explore the temple, soak in its history, and end your visit with a scoop (or two) of Papa's legendary coconut ice cream. After all, some traditions are too good to be missed.
