ICE CREAM COMPILATION cover

Singapore’s harsh weather and humidity make having ice cream almost a necessity rather than an occasional indulgence. And boy oh boy are we glad that there’s an abundance of ice cream parlours here in Singapore to aid us in combating the killer heat.

From artisanal ice cream shops to some of the biggest names in the field, here are 21 of our favourite ice cream parlours in Singapore to get our cooling, creamy fix.
