Urban Artisan

Special thanks to Urban Artisan for extending this food review invitation.

Nagore Square is a row of shops along Nagore Road (Jalan Nagor). An arch at its entrance serves as a landmark. Most of these shops are restaurants. In addition, Nagore Square is also a popular spot for nightlife.
Near the entrance from Burmah Road (Jalan Burma) is an ice cream shop called Urban Artisan. While ice cream is suitable for take-out, many customers prefer to sit down and chill out (pun intended). A trick artwork next to its entrance provides one of the many photo ops throughout George Town.
Urban Artisan's home recipe ice cream is produced from scratch using natural ingredients, several of which are imported from Italy. Because stabilizers and emulsifiers are not used, Urban Artisan's ice cream melts quicker than commercial ones. The shop has developed over 50 different flavors. However due to capacity constraints, only 4 flavors are available each week. Customers are given free samples before they decide.
Urban Artisan's ice cream has lower overrun than most soft serve ice cream elsewhere. Although not as dense as gelato, the ice cream here is fairly creamy. In most cases, ice cream is dispensed served in waffle cones made from bamboo charcoal. Most flavors cost RM11.90 each. But for an additional RM1.00, customers can get a combination of two flavors.
The ice cream flavors featured this week are Sea Salt Caramel Blue & Finest Strawberry (RM12.90) and Japanese Black Sesame & Coal Black Thai Coconut (RM12.90). It is worth noting that Urban Artisan has another outlet at Campbell Street (Lebuh Campbell) called Aqua Lab. This sister outlet serves proper meals and ice cream-related snacks.
