Fried Ice Cream

Last night all of a sudden I remembered one time when my brother took me to eat fried ice cream in a resto in Indo. He had been telling me about this a while before as his friends took him there. Back then he had his own motorcycle already (but no girlfriend yet), so he decided to bring me there to eat it. He said it was SO tasty!!!

We went to the resto and I was surprised since it was so small and nobody was there. I got an even bigger surprise when the waiter served our fried ice cream, since he lit a match and "burnt" it (FYI, the fried ice cream looked like a big banana fritter or "pisang goreng", but the inside was ice cream). Apparently there was plenty of rum on top of the fried ice cream to set a fire with and the result of the "burning" process was that it smelled REALLY good. So the ice cream tasted warm on the outside and cold on the inside. Quite a combination!!!

Unfortunately the resto has been closed, I think. We've never been there again after that occasion, but I'll NEVER forget it. It's VERY touching for me to know that my brother wants to share beautiful things (or delicious food) with me.

Even though we're brother and sister (not brother and brother), we've always been close. I was always his escort when he needed to buy a new pair of jeans or shoes before he had a girlfriend. I LOVE him and I LOVE being his elder sister!!! I couldn't have asked for a better "not-so-little-anymore" brother!



  1. Here's to your brothers love and fried ice-cream! I've not had it before and I'm intrigued about the taste...

  2. The World According to Me: Ahhhh...it tasted SPLENDID!!! If you can find it somewhere, you SHOULD try it he he he...I'd love to try to make it on my own if I can...maybe I should google the recipe hi hi...

    And yeah, cheers to loving family members and fried ice-cream! ;-D

  3. I discovered fried ice cream some years ago and I feel in love :) Now you have made me want to go to the Chinese restaurant round the corner :) Perhaps on Friday :)

  4. fried ice cream...that reminds me to indo hehehe :) do you feel better now?

  5. Yes there are many ways to prepare a fried ice cream dish.

    One way is to quickly deep fry the ice cream.

    Another way is to do the same, but finish it like a crepe suzette, where the liqueur is flambéed.

    I like both actually.

  6. Don't worry, you're going to meet him soon!

  7. La delirante: LUCKY you since there's a Chinese resto round the corner. The nearest one from here is at least an hour away by car ha ha ha...

    Jeanne: I'm not really sick, but my nose is runny and when I got out today to buy some bandage, I SNEEZED right away when I stepped outside of the building ha ha ha...

    Vince: Yes, it was really good. ;-D

  8. I tried the fried ice-cream before. The ice-cream was put inside the dough or something like ice-cream filling and then it was fried. I don't quite know how to describe it hihi... but the taste was not bad. :D
