Blog post : https://cptslowyeo.wordpress.com/2016/10/23/brownice-italian-vegan-ice-cream/Brownice Ice Cream is the first dessert place in Singapore to serve low-calorie, low-GI, low-fat, vegan-friendly and dairy-free ice cream made from organic brown rice. Guilt-free ice cream at it's best. Even though it's dairy-free, you should note that the ice cream does not taste icy at all, though it also lacks the creamy taste, Brownice ice cream still holds the smooth textures.The 4 scoops of ice cream we picked were :CoconutHazelnutMatchaPeanut ButterIt might sound like alot of flavours, but they all went well together. First off, if this is your first visit to Brownice, definitely go for the coconut! There's real coconut fruit embedded in the ice cream! It is slightly creamy, with authentic coconut taste and sweetness. It goes really well with the chocolate syrup topping.The matcha wasn't too bitter, and the sweetness level was just right for me. I don't like matcha ice creams that taste too sweet or artificial. Over here, the matcha was closer to the grainy texture, as unlike the coconut, the matcha wasn't able to have a smooth aftertaste. Nevertheless, probably the best guilt-free and vegan matcha you can taste in Singapore! The peanut butter was too sweet for my liking, but you could taste real peanut butter embedded into the ice cream. Think of chunky monkey from ben and jerrys. Lots of peanuts too, that adds a crunchy bite in every scoop!The hazelnut was almost like eating nutella ice cream! It was a tad sweet, and I probably wouldn't finish a whole scoop by myself, but give me a scoop of coconut or matcha, and it will magically disappear with a spoon in my hand.The waffle here is of a crispy consistency. I would say, this is one of my most favourite waffle places in Singapore. Despite the waffle not having any fragrance or aroma. The light, airy and yet biscuit like edges makes this waffle so addictive.Overall :  A great place to get vegan ice cream, even if you're not a vegan, or trying to stay on a healthy diet. The ice creams here are great, and so are their waffles. There's free wifi too! Definitely download the Entertainer App before heading down to Brownice! continue reading

Full review on http://herpenandfork.blogspot.sg/2016/02/brownice-italian-bistro-katong-review.html Brownice Italian Bistro is a vegan Italian bistro concept with 2 outlets located at Katong and Sin Ming respectively. While the Sin Ming outlet serves only waffles and ice cream, the Katong one serves up a full-fledged menu. Food MenuWe would think vegan food to be bland and unappealing, but backed by the rising eat-healthy trend in recent years and the increase in vegans, the vegan/vegetarian industry has seen businesses such as taiwanese-vegetarian Sufood (read the review here) by the Putien Group, striving to improve food quality and taste to even appeal to mainstream diners. Brownice however, sets itself distinctly apart from the competition by serving a fully Italian menu of pizzas and pastas.A differentiating point about Brownice is that they make their own vegan cheese, and it tastes very similar to cheese, but without the stringiness that some may miss. Apparently, to do a vegan cheese that tastes decent isn't easy and this definitely made the mark. AranciniArancini ($12)Arancini are fried, crumbed rice balls filled with vegan cheese and tomato. The marinara was a very well-seasoned blend of flavours that wasn't too sour or heavy on the tomato taste. My dining partner and I, who are not usually marinara fans, lapped this up, though it could use just a little less salt. A bonus for the health-conscious is that Brownice uses brown rice for this dish, consistent with the bistro's healthy slant. This dish was our favourite, all thanks to the superb marinara.Four Seasons PizzaFour Seasons Pizza ($18)This thin-crust pizza came in four variations, each with two slices. There were the toppings of artichokes with soy ham; taggiasche olives; sundried tomatoes and capsicum; truffle mushroom. The imported olives were juicy but too salty, though that has more to do with the preserved nature of olives. Our favourite slices were the truffle mushroom and artichokes with soy ham. Brownice definitely served up flavours that are very close to the Italian taste in Italy. We did not miss the meat in this meal. The waffles and ice cream are touted as a must-try, so we will be headed there for it next time. continue reading

The outlet is located just off the main road of Upper Thomson and is within walking distance from the MRT station. The place is known for its vegan friendly food such as ice cream and pizza. It offers free wifi. What attracts me at the counter is the display of ice cream cakes, which I seldom see been sold as slices.I order 2 pieces which are been placed on a plate with some decorations on. So cute.Coconut-Gula Melaka "Egg" ($5.50/ mini)Coconut and gula melaka ice cream on digestive biscuit base. Delightly refreshing pairing.The ice cream is smooth with bits of the coconut flesh in it. It would be better if the flavour of the gula melaka has been stronger. The biscuit base gives it a slightly salty taste. Unique combination of the sweet and salty.Pure Hazelnut Bomb ($5.50/mini)Thick layer of hazenut ice cream on a fruit and nut chocolate base.The ice cream is very smooth and rich which kind of reminds me of peanut butter. Like this very much.Overall friendly staff with yummy desserts. There is also plain water and tissue to help yourself to at the side of the counter. Best of all the place is not crowded. continue reading

The Upper Thomson area has enjoyed popularity for offering different F&B choices. Ice cream parlours are no strangers here, with Salted Caramel, Udders, NeLi and Scoopz within the shophouses. One of the earliest tenants of the area, Brownice, is located further inwards, within Sin Ming Centre, which specializes in ice cream made from all natural, egg-free and non-dairy products.Satisfying my waffle cravings, I ordered the Waffles with Peanut Butter Chocolate ($7.30; $3.80 for waffles, $3.50 for 1 scoop). The waffles is crisp on the outside and moist on the inside. The Peanut Butter Chocolate accompanying it, while trying to strike a balance between both flavours, tasted more chocolatey than the peanut butter taste.Anyone can enjoy the ice cream here without feeling guilty due to the nature of the contents. If you are around the Sin Ming / Upper Thomson area, this is one spot that should not be missed.For the full review and more photos, please visit http://makanarts.com/2014/04/28/brownice-sin-ming-centre/ continue reading

http://phuachiuyen.wordpress.com/2013/07/13/brownice-ice-creams-8-sin-ming-road/I tried the hazelnut chocolate and green tea ice cream. Hazelnut wise, it was quite fragrant with a chocolate-y taste. Not the best I've tasted so far but still passable. It would be better if the hazelnut taste was stronger. Green tea ice cream was thick and hardly goes wrong. I'm a green tea fan! It also has a slight milky green tea taste. Very white theme layout - makes the place looks huge and classy.You may also ask for a teaspoon sample of the ice creams before deciding which to order. continue reading
