17th February 2017

Updated ice-cream desserts to excite your sweet tooth

We’ve gone through Insta-worthy ice-cream desserts before, but ice-cream cafes keep coming up with new ways to serve their daily scoops, so here’s an updated list of what they’ve been doing. Whether your favourite flavour is chocolate, vanilla or salted caramel, the fat ice-cream-loving cat in you will enjoy these new ways to indulge. So grab your friends, partner or folks this Sunday to sink your teeth into these updated ice-cream desserts!

1. Doughnut waffle


Not to be confused with the froyo bar that has the same name, Milk & Honey Gelato specialises in a wide range of gelato made in-house. Exclusive to their Bukit Batok outlet are doughnut waffles that come in five flavours including Peanut Butter Jelly ($6.20) and Mud Ball Pie ($5.90). The latter features a doughnut waffle seated atop a pool of vanilla sauce, and a huge scoop of Cookie Monster gelato drizzled in thick chocolate sauce.

2. Chimney cake


Chimney Singapore is the first store in Singapore to serve this Hungarian pastry that features delicious baked dough covered in cinnamon sugar. A Chimney Cake with Soft Serve ($4.50) is rolled and baked on the spot, and the warm dough is then sprinkled with cinnamon sugar, peanuts or Oreo bits. This sweet treat is completed with a swirl of vanilla or chocolate soft serve. For those who want something more, add Nutella or peanut butter spread in the cone for an additional $1.

3. J-cone


Aside from bingsu, there’s another Korean dessert that deserves attention. Jipangyi, or J-cone, is a long corn snack that’s injected with soft serve, so every cold, sweet bite comes with a crunch. Get one from Insadong Korea Town in Sentosa for $6. Be warned, eating this can be a huge mess!

4. Egg waffle


Egg waffles make an Instagram-worthy addition to Hvala Waffle Bar’s soft serve. Tsubu ($7.80) is a cup of matcha soft serve with toppings such as torched dango balls, seaweed senbei (rice crackers), as well as gula melaka sago. You can add an egg waffle, AKA puffle, for $3. As if this dessert doesn’t look spectacular enough, the puffle is then drizzled in chocolate or Speculoos sauce.

Address: 313 Orchard Road, #B3-50, Somerset 313, Singapore 238895
Opening hours: Daily 11:30am to 10pm

5. Japanese purple yam

Hong Kong’s famous Small Potatoes Ice Creamery opened an outlet in Singapore last June, and their desserts revolve around Japanese purple yam. Small Potato Party ($9.50) is the most decadent of the lot, and features Japanese purple yam paste, warabi green tea mochi and Japanese rice balls atop – you guessed it – Japanese purple yam soft serve.

6. Popcorn


Despite their tagline “American festival sweets”, Sweet Monster is actually a Korean brand. They opened two outlets in Singapore about a year ago, and Popcorn Monster ($6.80) became one of their best-sellers. It features a tower of popcorn, which comes in flavours such as strawberry, chocolate and caramel, embedded in soft serve. Talk about upgrading your movie snack.

Opening hours: Daily 10:30am to 10:30pm
Tel: 6333 4154

7. Over-the-top cone


Hinging on to the OTT trend is 5 The MomentsFreaky Cone ($8.60 for single scoop, $10.80 for double scoop), which features gelato on a cone with more toppings than you can imagine. Many go there for their waffles ($12.80 with a scoop of gelato) that come in flavours such as green tea, charcoal, and red velvet. Fans also swear by gelato flavours such as Truffle Chocolate, Ferrero Rocher, and Earl Grey.

8. Mochi doughnuts

Found within Stateland Cafe, Brother Bird specialises in soft serve that come in interesting flavours such as avocado and cookie butter. Their much-raved about dessert is Classic ($12.90++), which is soft serve seated atop a doughnut that has a slightly chewy, mochi-like texture. ‘Liu Sa’ ($14.90++) features doughnut balls with salted egg yolk within it, though I felt it could’ve liu-ed (flowed) a bit more.

Address: 30 Bali Lane, Singapore 189866
Opening hours: Mon 12pm to 10pm, Wed-Sun 12pm to 10pm
Tel: 9800 7628

9. Thyme cone


The gelato flavours at Birds of Paradise echo its minimalist theme. Infused with various herbs and spices, you can get flavours such as strawberry basil, lemongrass ginger and white chrysanthemum with cacao nibs. A single scoop is priced at $4.70 and a double is at $7.70. They also managed to spice up the traditional waffle cone by infusing it with thyme. You won’t regret trying their Thyme Cones ($1 each), which are made daily and adds a refreshing fragrance to your gelato.

10. Tea

Instead of pouring espresso into your ice-cream to make it an affogato, Matchaya lets you drown your soft serve in a shot of tea. Featuring flavours that rotate seasonally, soft serve at this little takeaway is rich and exceptionally strong in flavour. It comes in a small plastic cup and is served with langues de chat (cat tongue cookie) that’s made in-house. Check out their Facebook page to find out what flavour they are serving currently!
