To celebrate Singapore’s 55th birthday this year, Creamier Handcrafted Ice Cream
& Coffee has joined hands with a local beancurd stall, Pure Soya Bean—located at the Toa Payoh West Market & Food Centre at Blk 127 Lor 1—to come up with a new seasonal “Tau Huay” (Beancurd) ice cream flavour.
Good news, ice cream lovers! Chip Guan Heng, one of Singapore’s oldest ice cream distributors, is now offering island-wide delivery for their old-school ice cream at S$4 per block. Yes, it’s the same S$1.20 hawker ice cream that Singapore is known for, except that you can get an entire block at S$4.
To place an order, you must have a minimum order of $50 for delivery. Free delivery is offered for orders above S$80.
Ever felt left out when your group of friends decide to pick the latest and hippest ice-cream café as their new favourite hangout spot? Whether you are watching your diet, or are lactose-intolerant, the temptation can be unbearable when you see your friends happily savouring their mounds of colourful ice-creams.
With many Singaporeans actively swapping their diets and lifestyles to a healthier one, it can be difficult to justify pampering yourself with a scoop. Thankfully, not all ice-creams are made equal: whether you are looking for a lower calorie option, or need to adhere to dietary restrictions, there is no longer a need to abstain from ice-creams this festive season.
To all my fellow sufferers out there, here are 8 cafés where you too can spoil yourself with healthier vegan ice-cream options this festive season!
Seeing how we are stuck with this unforgiving weather all year round, it’s no surprise that many of us are on the perpetual search for new places to get our ice cream fix in Singapore. This time, our search has led us to Mingle Mangle, an ice cream parlour nestled at the edge of Hougang that scoops up a selection of classic and unique ice cream flavours.
Let’s be real. With the kind of weather we have in Singapore, we can have ice cream every day.
A hidden gem among the countless maid agencies, massage parlours and tuition centres in Katong Shopping Centre lies The Humble Scoop, an ice cream parlour serving up in-house churned ice cream.
Tucked away in a quiet part of the basement, they pride themselves on locally inspired ice cream flavours. What really intrigued us were the names of the flavours on display. With names such as Orh Haw (hawthorn berry), Orh-Bee-Good (pulut hitam) and In-Kueh-Dible (salted coconut & gula melaka) that only us Singaporeans will understand, it definitely made us want to find out more.
When King Albert’s Park is mentioned, people normally think of the good ol’ days when McDonalds occupied the area. However, now, the place has been completely revamped into an up-and-coming mall space.
Just a walk through King Albert’s Park Mall, you will see several cafes and restaurants, including a new cinema. One such place that caught our eye was the sleek and simple Camaca cafe.
Camaca is a sugar-free dessert cafe, serving up indulgent treats that come without the guilt, along with a wide selection of single-origin coffees.
