Island Creamery, Singapore

so after our french lunch, we headed over to the ice-cream joint, Island Creamery which used to occupy the lot La Petite Cuisine is at now. i quite like what greeted me as soon as i stepped into the ice-cream joint. red and white are the main colours, with a wall of photos of happy patrons. they even had a section for kids to draw, with ready supplies of paper, crayons, and even a chalkboard. love how they mixed and matched their chairs which portrayed such an element of fun. and their takeaway boxes have moo-moo prints on them. lol.

The place was packed with students, which meant a noisier and more rambunctious crowd. I didn’t mind really, as i was more curious about the ice-cream flavours available. they had quite a variety of adaptations of local flavours such as teh tarik (frothy, pulled milk tea), cendol (local shaven ice dessert), pulut hitam (black glutinous rice dessert), black sesame ice-cream and even fruity versions such as banana, coconut, soursop etc. the best part of course is being able to ask for a taste for the flavours before you make your final choice.

teh tarik, pulut hitam & fresh banana flavours
the group of us finally settled on a few scoops to share between us and chose teh tarik, pulut hitam, fresh banana, soursop and cookies & cream. i particularly enjoyed the pulut hitam one as they had the rice bits in it which gave it a nice bite. and the taste and flavour was very true to the real thing. i didn’t like the tea one as much as it tasted nore like tea leaves with very little milk. i ate quite a bit of the soursop one as no one else apart from one of the kids liked the sour taste much, and i did. and it even had real soursop flesh bits in it.

Island Creamery also claims to make the ice-cream fresh, with no artificial colouring or flavouring. So for good ice-cream with the added bonus of local varities at an affordable price ($2.50 a scoop, $4 for 2), do visit this ice-cream parlour. Great place to hang out too and maybe you can pin up your photo with the rest of the people on the wall too.
