Living in the heartlands of Singapore does not mean artisanal gelato is inaccessible. Barely a year old, Double Scoops is an artisanal gelato cafe situated right in the heartlands of Ang Mo Kio, offering premium low-fat gelato at very reasonable prices, alongside a plethora of desserts.
Gelato is always a good idea, especially with Singapore’s humidity. Gelato is loved for being a healthier option as opposed to ice cream because of the lower fat content and use of better ingredients.
This humble gelato parlour has won us over with their no-frills concept that focuses on serving quality desserts. From now till 31 March 2016, readers of ladyironchef can flash this post or quote “ladyironchef” to enjoy 50% OFF the 2nd Waffle/ Shibuya Toast (of same value or lower) purchased from Mondays to Fridays.
Cafes and dessert shops are always offering the ubiquitous fare – copying one another, following the crowd and what not – so how do you stand out?
How’s it if you can D.I.Y your own coffee and bread buns (like Shibuya toasts) with wooden blocks equipped with RFID tags? Blocs Inc. is one cafe to look out for, and they are making waves in the industry by introducing this unique concept, unlike any that we have seen here in Singapore.
We are always on the market for innovative and quirky ice cream flavours. When we stumbled upon Dessert Project at Havelock Road, it was as if all our prayers have been answered. A plethora of colourful flavours greeted us and a handful were so new and intriguing, we can only wonder what they will be whipping up next!
If you are clueless about what a Shibuya Toast is, it is basically just a sweeter version of a French toast with a plethora of colourful toppings. Originating from Tokyo itself, the reason why this beautiful thick toast dessert is such a hit in Singapore is simple – they taste as good as they look. Or sometimes even better.
The combination of perfectly buttered and toasted thick toast is decorated with sweet toppings that usually includes maple syrup, various flavours of ice cream or gelato, whipped cream and fruits.
Now, the golden question is – just where do you find the best Shibuya Toasts in Singapore? Read on to find out more.
