SnowBowl Mango Ice (D17) IDR 32K
Mango ice served with mango pudding, fresh mango, passion fruit popping boba, and rainbow jelly. Since mangoes are seasonal fruits, good and sweet ones were not available during our visit so it was replaced with a scoop of mango ice cream. The mango snow ice was sooooooo good that it was hard to stop eating it. Honestly, it was like I was eating frozen mango juice or something. The passion fruit popping boba complimented the mango ice very well, and yeah, fruity desserts are always my choice compared to milky ones.
SnowBowl Green Tea Ice (D13) IDR 36K
Green Tea ice served with matcha ice cream, grass jelly pudding, Q ball, and pearl. This was very good but sweeter than the other bowls because of the ice cream.
SnowBowl Plum Ice (D22) IDR 32K
Plum ice served with lemon jade jelly, passion fruit popping boba, rainbow jelly and nata de coco.
SnowBowl Grass Jelly Ice (D) IDR 36K
Grass Jelly ice served with matcha ice cream, grass jelly pudding, Q ball and pearl.
Out of 7 ice flavors, my favorites are the plum ice, followed closely by mango ice. The plum ice especially, it was surprisingly good! Normally I am not really a fan of plum fruit, but this version was very nice, with balanced sweetness and sourness, so refreshing! All the ices were really soft and rich in flavors. For the grass jelly ice, I tried the one with matcha ice cream, and I think it was a big mistake because once I mixed everything altogether, the whole bowl tasted matcha, so I hardly tasted any grass jelly flavor of the ice. But of course, there are other topping selections that go well with the grass jelly ice that are non matcha related, so next time I will make sure I order those ones!
Beside desserts, SnowBowl Cafe also serves some Taiwanese street snacks and heavier menu such as rice, noodle or pasta dishes.
Popcorn Chicken (S01) IDR 28K
This comes in 2 modes: Original or Spicy, and we chose the original one. Although the appearance wasn’t really extraordinary, surprisingly it was super delicious. The chicken pieces were soft and deep-fried until crunchy. I especially appreciated this because I didn’t feel thirsty afterwards, unlike some fried chicken in other places.
Taiwan Sweet Potato Stick (S02) IDR 20K
A must order whenever we go to Taiwanese street food places, this was exceptionally great! I hate to say this, but it seems like my heart is already sinking too deeply to this cafe. The sweet potato sticks were sweet but not overly sweet, and they were fried so well! Just YUM! And… they used the plum powder as seasonings (see that reddish orange powder sprinkled on the sticks?), seriously it’s a super duper perfect combination.
Grilled Chicken Chop
This is one of the most popular menu amongst the main course selections. Basically a chicken thigh fillet grilled and served with brown gravy and potato wedges. The chicken was nice but grilled too much so I could taste some bitterness. The meat was still tender and juicy, though, so I think the problem was the fire/heat concentration, not the timing. The gravy sauce was just like what I love, not too thick but not runny either, only the taste was too salty for me. The star of the dish was the potato wedges, which were cut in really big chunks but so well-fried!
Fried Noodle Tom Yam (F03) IDR 30K
As fried noodle, it was standardly nice, but couldn’t taste anything about tom yam.
Nasi Lemak with Prawn Sambal (F13) IDR 35K
Didn’t try this one, but I was told this was very tasty and surprisingly fulfilling! Seriously, the prawn sambal looked so tempting.
French Fries (S03) IDR 15K
Okay, you might think it’s just a french fries, but it is not. I ordered this for my 4 years-old nephew, who eats french fries like there is no tomorrow. But sometimes he is kinda picky, especially when he meets wavy ones. But this one was sprinkled with tasty seasoning powder and he was hooked, in the end finished two plates by himself. Need I say more?
