Fanny Ice Cream @ Near Hoan Kiem Lake, Hanoi

Fanny Ice Cream may not be on everyone's to-eat-list, but a visit there may change your mind. This family friendly ice cream parlor overlooking the Hoan Kiem Lake was founded by Jean Marc Bruno in 1994. The menu was comprehensive, with over 30 different ice cream flavors and unique food-like creations.

Die hard fans should visit the parlor on the first Friday of every month to indulge on the all-you-can-eat ice cream buffet starting from 630pm to 11pm.
Sushi (109,000 VND ~ RM16) - For those looking for an instant gratification, the Sushi,  inspired by tropical fruits would be a good choice - no chopsticks are required for this dish. The sushi was accompanied by chocolate and strawberry dipping sauce. We were won over by the creative design and creamy ice cream.
Spring Rolls (85,000 VND ~ RM12) - The Spring Roll was colorful and creatively flavored with vanilla ice cream, blueberry and mix berries sorbet. The combination of crepes, almonds, fresh strawberries and chocolate fudge escorted our taste buds to heaven.

Skilled at matching flavors and innovating new ice cream dishes. Jean Marc Bruno is not so much an ice cream artisan, as he is a flavor maestro. 

Question: How often do you have ice cream? Would you pay a premium for creative dessert like these? =)

Verdict : TOTALLY SMITTEN

  4. RM16 for that sushi ice cream is a price i'd gladly pay! it looks like it's actually worth more than RM20, based on the quality and effort necessary to produce it! :D

  8. I was looking for this address, but now they are already moving to 51 Ly Thuong Kiet, French Quarter. Not too far from Hoan Kiem Lake. I like their ginger & cinnamon ice cream. I ate it with Crepe and it was awesome
