Shojikiya @ Hartamas Shopping Centre.

Yum Yum...I luv this Japanese Food specialty store! Albeit it looks abit depressing with not many customers.

Last week we were having dinner @ Rakuzen and was surprised to find this food store. It offers a wide variety of Japanese snacks, frozen food, Japanese spices, nudles and most importantly, ice cream! Can't resist having these nicely packed sweet treats, all priced at RM5.90 only.

Vanilla ice cream in waffle & Green tea ice cream

Luv both flavours esp green tea which was so delectably smooth.
Will definitely go back for more ice creams. I spotted some cute strawberry ice cream puffs, black sesame ice cream and chocolate waffles in the fridge too. Guess the colourful packaging did the trick :)

I was there when they newly opened. Everything look so good...like you said, the packaging really attractive. I bought the DIY Green Tea Ice Cream powder and Creme Caramel Powder, hehehe...didn't turn out well since instructions were in Jap and the Jap owner didn't explain clearly.
