Time flies. It has already been four years since artisanal ice-cream parlour Salted Caramel first opened its doors in Upper Thomson!
The popular of this ice-cream shop that is jam packed with customers every night till date still hasn’t died, and their formula to success in this cut-throat industry is no mind-blogging secret – they pride themselves on handcrafting ice-cream free from artificial enhancers and preservatives.
Salted Caramel has long become a favourite go-to dessert destination for Upper Thomson residers, as well as for those who do not live in the vicinity. Thankfully, their ice-cream prices remain extremely affordable despite its success. And yes, the salted caramel is still our favourite flavour.
The unpretentious ice-cream store’s prices are humbly justified. A single scoop (S$3.60), double scoop (S$6.40) or even a triple scoop (S$9.20) all cost well below S$10.
For a more substantial dessert, you can choose to add on a brownie (S$3.50) or a waffle (S$4) to your choice of ice cream. The selection of premium flavours will have you spoilt for choice, but our personal favourites are hands down Earl Grey, Horlicks Tim Tam, Milo and of course, Salted Caramel.
The turnover rate of cafes in Singapore is insanely brutal and soaring rentals have made it even harder for new establishments to thrive in this cut-throat food and beverage industry.
But by now, we all know that Salted Caramel is far from just a fad. Its novelty of being new has clearly worn off, but its regulars have been returning religiously for more. In fact, the ice cream parlour is now regarded as a household name amongst those who live in Thomson.
