Santan, a Malay word literally known as coconut milk in English. Santan is a Bruneian made brand specializing in coconut ice-cream which they claimed to be “probably the best artisan coconut ice-cream you’ll ever taste”.
Santan happened to be doing a pop-up at the arrival hall of Brunei International Airport. Sister and I came across their stall as we were exiting the arrival hall. Being the curious me, I approached their kiosk and decided to get one for the both of us to share. There had been quite an amount of shops selling coconut ice-cream here in Brunei recently.
Santan offers their ice-cream in different types of servings. Cone, small cup and large cup. Sister and I went for the small cup as we will be heading for tea break with Jennifer at The Healthy Habit shortly.
Small Cup | B$2.50
All servings comes with complimentary toppings. You can have multiple toppings of your choice. I intended to go for Oreo but settled with Nestum and it was the right choice. Nestum went so well with the ice-cream. The server suggested that I can have Oreo together with Nestum if I like.
The moment when Sister had her first go of the ice-cream, she went “Wow! It really taste very coconut!”. The ice-cream ain’t as milky and smooth as the ice-cream we are used to, it’s more on the icy side. Nevertheless, it was still nice.
Santan is currently having a poll on their social media platforms asking the public if they should make their pop up permanent at the arrival hall of Brunei International Airport. What’s your say in this?
