#4 LAUNDRY GALLEY


It all started with laundry. Having its roots as a 24-hour laundromat in Tampines, Laundry Galley was born out of a desire to offer customers a pick-me-up while they were waiting for their laundry to be done. How cool is that?

Their homemade ice cream will do more than just pick you up, though. Their concoctions promise an ultra-creamy and rich texture, no matter which flavour you pick. Take it from us and get their Valrhona Dark Chocolate or Espresso Coffee. They have classic and charcoal waffles too, if you want to amp up your dessert treat.

There are just some unbearably hot days when all you want to do is wolf down some ice — we get it. And so does Penang A1 Chendol. This hole-in-the-wall shop certainly knows how to do a mean bowl of Chendol.

Their no-frills Traditional Chendol (S$3) has got all the usual suspects of gula melaka, coconut milk, pandan jelly and kidney beans. They are pretty generous with the ingredients, ensuring a satisfying spoonful every time. If you’re in the mood for a drink instead, they do a solid D-24 Durian Smoothie (S$4.50/regular, S$5/large).
