On May 11, a bunch of hungry food bloggers pigged out on gourmet burgers and ice cream! Yes, I met up with Evan, ladyironchef, Nic, Hungry Cow, and Keropokman for lunch at Relish (stay tuned for that post). After that, we walked over next door to Island Creamery.
Six different flavors for the six of us to share! That’s the good thing about eating out with a big group. You get to try more variety! This was my virgin Island Creamery experience, and I was very happy to see so many Singaporean flavors!
Evan, the sophisticated patissier, remained true to nature by picking the chic Burnt Caramel. Me? I picked the very heartlander Chendol!
Overall impression: Excellent ice cream that’s very smooth, creamy and not too sweet. Too bad they all tended to melt pretty quickly.
Of all the flavors, my favorite was the Teh Tarik. It was very milky with a robust taste of red tea. I’m surprised they replicated the teh tarik flavor so well! I wonder if they have teh halia ice cream?
The fragrant Pulot Hitam was great, too. But the Chendol wasn’t as good as I’d expected, as the chendol flavor didn’t stand out enough. The Reverso and Nutella were decent but ordinary, and I didn’t think much of the Burnt Caramel. Or maybe I couldn’t make out the burnt caramel because the tastebuds were already overwhelmed by the other flavors!
I thought the pricing here is very reasonable. As we ordered two triple scoop cups, each scoop of ice cream averaged out to about S$2.00 each. All the ice cream is freshly made in-house. If you wish to buy some for your mother/father/uncle/auntie/siblings/friends, tubs are also available for take-away.
