Stone Ice review

stone ice

Stone Ice is a popular iced dessert and rojak
specialty outlet that has been operating for years at the top floor of
the commercial portion of Saberkas building. The shop occupies almost
the entire area and the name stems from its initial foray into iced
desserts and the decor.

stone ice seating

Stone Ice has seating arrangements made of solid rock in a part
Roman part prehistoric theme. The tall pillars leading up to the
ordering counter is decorated by the random tall brush and small
decorative areas with creeping vines and stones. It’s like a small Zen
garden in the austere shopping mall.

stone ice bar

Stone Ice is a self-service eating establishment – there are
different sections on the long bar counter for ordering. The two main
flagship products are located in the iced dessert (ABC Special or Ice
Kacang) section and the rojak (fruit salad) section.

stone ice counter

This is the iced dessert and rojak section. Stone Ice pioneered the
open kitchen concept long before the term was coined. There are
selections of fresh fruit, dried nuts, and other items on display here.
The user is given a bowl and chooses the ingredients they want in their
iced dessert or rojak.

The iced dessert containers have the usual suspects like cendol,
sweet corn, mixed fruits and various colored jellies. You choose the
stuff you want in your iced dessert from this section and put it into
your bowl.

stone ice dessert dried fruits

There is also an additional section for the users who wants to spice
up their iced dessert with unorthodox ingredients – there is a variety
of dried fruits and herbs you can opt for.

This is the stuff I put into my bowl – there are peaches, corn,
black jelly (a jelly made from herbs), and miscellaneous jellies to add
texture to the final product.

stone ice dessert choice 2

I also added some dried fruits to the bowl coz I like eating stuff
with different tastes and textures. The bowl is charged a standard
price and it’s passed to the attendant on duty for processing.

The attendant puts shaved ice on top of the ingredients and tops it with a healthy pouring of evaporated milk and sugar syrup.

This is what the finished product looks like – the ingredients are
all at the bottom of the bowl just like what a local shaved ice dessert
should look like.

Here’s a closer look at the shaved ice dessert. There are an
infinite number of different variants which you can make due to the
user customization of the ingredients that goes into the shaved ice
dessert. It’s a great concept!

stone ice rojak choice

The rojak here is what Kuching citizens usually go for. Stone Ice is
famous for the same reasons it’s renowned for good iced desserts – the
rojak is customizable from an array of different platters of fruit,
tofu and even lok lok (deep fried seafood).

stone ice rojak mango

The customer is given a container and you fill up that container
from the ingredients that’s on offer. I like my rojak to have plenty of
fresh mangos…

stone ice rojak jambu

…and jambu batu (a water soaked local fruit) as well as pink guava.

stone ice rojak selection

Here’s a closer look at the my container – it’s filled with fruits
and I also added some deep fried crab sticks (at the bottom left) and
some squid (bottom right) coz I like zany ingredients with fruit. Can
you see why Stone Ice is a stoner paradise now? ;)

stone ice rojak weight

The rojak is sold by weight…the container is put on a weighing
scale and the amount charged according to how heavy it is. Fruits like
nectarines are lighter and so is tofu but I really don’t like tofu so I
just add a little of it.

stone ice rojak assembly

The rojak you selected is sent for further processing after the
weighing process. It’s like a mini assembly line. This is where the
rojak is cut and mixed up with rojak sauce and peanuts and chilli (if
you opt for it) for the final product.

stone ice rojak attendant

The attendant will start cutting the selections into bite sized
pieces and mix it in a large bowl (which happens to be a stone bowl,
and could be a possible etymology of the establishment’s name) with
grounded peanuts and rojak sauce (a sweet dark sauce).

stone ice rojak cut

The rojak is done individually and that adds to the appeal of the
rojak over here. The antiseptic cleanliness of the bar doesn’t hurt
either. You can see octopus legs here if you squint at my choices.
Octopus legs with rojak rocks my socks off (no pun intended).

stone ice rojak mix

The mixing of the ingredients is done by dousing the stuff you chose
with rojak sauce. The rojak is made by a wooden spatula slowly
integrating the ingredients in a semi-uniform manner and allowing each
piece to be covered by the sauce.

stone ice rojak

Stone Ice rojak is served on disposable Styrofoam containers with
toothpicks and half a lime, topped with finely grounded peanuts and
pork floss (by request).

It’s great stuff…

Stone Ice is Stoner’s Heaven. :)
