For vanilla lovers, Amani Vanilla may just be heaven. Founded in 2008 by former journalist Mohamad Norawi, this farm-café offers desserts and drinks made with vanilla beans grown and harvested on-site. Vanilla farms are rare in Malaysia, but Norawi is on a mission to change that.
The farm, which supplies vanilla beans to restaurants throughout Kuala Lumpur, has quickly become a popular local and tourist attraction. Visitors can ride ATVs to tour the farm, learn about the harvesting season, and view the rows of vanilla orchid canopies. The tour ends at the farm’s café.
Try the freshly churned vanilla bean ice cream or a vanilla bean root beer float. There’s also various waffles and pastries topped with—you guessed it—vanilla bean whipped cream.
