I remember watching Shark Tank and one of the products being pitched on was edible cookie dough …. it got me thinking ‘how I wished there were desserts shops here that offer such option in variety’ because I didn’t think there were any here besides the standard ones sold at the grocery shops. I’ve never tried it and so, I cannot say for certain that I’ll love it but come on, it is sooooo popular in the US, there has to be something nice, good to it, right?
This is a new eatery, having been in operation for a lil over 3 weeks now. Ever since I heard of Lick a Spoon, I’ve been wanting to drop by but it is located right smack in the middle of SS 15 – the part that is always busy and congested, parking is a pain with everyone double parking everywhere. Uggh! Which was why I decided to head over today, during the Merdeka holiday which was a smart thing to do because surprise, surprise .. I even managed to get myself a parking spot just a few doors away. Yay!
Lick a Spoon shares a shop lot with Malaya Optical or rather its 3/4 Malaya Optical and 1/4 Lick a Spoon. Basically, they are located next to one another. If you are not familiar with the area, simply Waze to Malaya Optical.
This is a simple, basic eatery. It is not one of those Instagram-able cafes. It is not artsy, bombastic, whimsical, colorful – nope. It is simple and basic. There is basically one table with chairs to sit at. Other than that, it mostly is the counter, with the cookie dough variety on display and that is about it. This may change in the future?? Perhaps when Lick a Spoon becomes more out there, known? Or maybe everyone that buys it prefers the ‘taking away’ option? Who knows…
Half & Half, 6 ringgit + Rainbow, 7 ringgit
Half & Half is basically a combination, 50 % cookie dough of choice and 50 % homemade Vanilla ice cream. They 5 cookie dough flavors at the moment. The Signature Original goes for 6 ringgit and the other 4 flavors – Brownie, Rainbow, Matcha are 7 ringgit each. For Half & Half, I opted for their Signature Original. It was surprisingly good. The cookie dough was moist and had a texture that was in between a brownie and fudge. For the first 5 seconds, I was kindda preparing myself to taste a gross combination of flour, the yucky kind but no such thing here. It was nice, not too sweet, with plenty of chocolate chunks, chips in it. The ice cream was thick and milk, a nice combination with the dough.
The Rainbow is a colorful, eye pleasing offering with plenty of marshmallows, sprinkles, chocolate and edible heart shaped bits. Tastewise, it taste somewhat similar or perhaps my tastebuds got confused because I kept going back and forth between the two flavors? I am not sure which it is but I liked this one too.
To me, the cookie dough is something I’d have little by little. Maybe 5 spoons now, head out for a meeting, come back home and have another 5 spoons…. That kind of thing. Most of my friends are reluctant to give it a go, they prefer sticking to the usual cakes and chocolates. However, if you fancy something different, do give it a go.
