Swensen's Mango Sticky Rice Ice-Cream

Siem Reap is generally hot especially in the months of March to June so having some cold drinks or ice-cream is not a fat-fetch idea. There are many "coolers" sold in Siem Reap but Swensen's is Swensen's.

Swensen's ice-cream is quite good and it is a popular choice in Siem Reap especially since the branch is near the Old Market area. 


There are a lot of flavors to choose from, as well as milkshakes and sundaes and banana splits. It is really hard to choose since everything on the menu sounds delicious. The ice cream parlor is also brightly lit and with colors pleasing to the eyes.

Based on my Google search, Swensen's is originally a U.S. brand but is now owned by a Canadian food company. It has many branches in Asia that includes the Philippines although the ones in Manila closed already.


Aside from ice-cream, there's also ice-cream cake available at Swensen's. So Tempting to get one! Hopefully next time we visit Siem Reap I'll be able to try the ice-cream cake. :D


I was about to order the usual two scoops but noticed that they are serving Mango Sticky Rice Ice-Cream for a limited run. I like that!


Here's the Mango Sticky Rice Ice-Cream that I ordered. It has two scoops of mango ice-cream on-top-of green sticky rice, with some cream, scoconut strips, nuts, and caramel sauce. And if you notice the green seed-like thingy- that's a small "mango" candy. Yum! Btw, it comes with sweetened milk that you pour on the sticky rice. Think "suman."

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!

RECIPE: TKG's Brownie Balls with Cointreau Infused Cranberries

We may still be quarantined inside our homes but that doesn't mean we have to let go of our love for food. And if there's something positive that happened in our new normal, I'd say that most people (including me) have discovered the simple joys of spending more time in the kitchen. Here's my take on a classic brownie recipe made special with Cointreau.
