The number of cafes in Rangoon Road has grown steadily over the past years and the quaint Farrer Park neighbourhood is now home to an eclectic mix of old-school coffee shops, hipster-looking cafes and whatnot.
Icebox Cafe – one of the newer kids on the block – has come up with its version of Dominique Ansel-inspired Cookie and Milk Shots.
Icebox Cafe is Singapore’s very first halal-certified specialty bingsu cafe, but the menu features more than just Korean ice-cold treats. Indulge in sinful over-the-top shakes, tasty fluffy toasts and of course, do not leave the cafe until you have tried their lovely Cookie Shots (S$6.90) served with a choice of ice cream.
Icebox Cafe’s Cookie Shot is served on a triangular dish with a jug of milk and your preferred flavour of ice cream. The cookie cup is coated with chocolate at the rim and boasts a delightful doughy texture.
Fill the edible cup with milk and sip from it, or start nibbling on the cookie shot glass. The cookie cup is not overwhelmingly sweet and has a pleasantly mild salty aftertaste.
Admittedly, the underwhelming cookies-and-cream ice cream melted a tad too fast.
While the attention-grabbing dessert is arguably gimmicky, we have to say we actually did enjoy chomping through the thick edible chocolate chip cookie shot glass.
Besides the head-turning cookie shot, signature bingsu snow desserts and dramatic shakes, Icebox Cafe also sells a splendid selection of toasts.
Some flavours to try are the Red Velvet Toast with Vanilla Bean Cream Cheese (S$9.90) and the Peanut Butter Cheesecake Toast stuffed with Chocolate Brownie (S$9.90).
