The west of Singapore, to many people, is an often-unexplored area with jokes of passport-requirements being thrown around. Cafes in the west are a novelty and we have found yet another hidden gem tucked away in Taman Jurong Shopping Centre.
Ice-Cream Man and Friends is a circus-themed ice cream parlour, decked in whimsical decor and over 20 flavours of ice cream to choose from. Westies will now have a new place to beat the sunny Singaporean heat!
Stepping into Ice-Cream Man and Friends, you’ll be transported to a whimsical wonderland of circus-themed decor. Their extensive menu will have you spoilt for choice – not to mention their 28 flavours of multi-coloured ice creams!
You can choose from their signature Buttermilk Waffle (S$6), the ever-popular Charcoal Waffle (S$7) or their Red Velvet Waffle (S$7). We chose to have a Charcoal Waffle topped with two scoops of ice cream (S$7.60) – Red Velvet Cookies and Speculoos Cookie Butter.
We found the waffle to be nice and fluffy with a slightly crisp exterior. The waffle was first drizzled with sweet caramel sauce before the ice cream was scooped atop it, adding an extra sweet touch.
The ice cream, on the other hand, was good but not exactly spectacular. The Red Velvet Cookies ice cream tasted more like regular cookies and cream ice cream despite the bright red colour.
We also felt the Speculoos Cookie Butter flavour was more sweet than flavourful. There were a few crumbs of cookie inside, but it lacked substantial flavour. Perhaps we would have had better luck with the rest of the ice cream flavours!
