Ice-cream parlours are growing rapidly within the neighborhoods. The Milky Way is one of it that located at west side of Singapore. The cafe is situated in the Tanglin Halt neighborhood with an approximately 10 minutes walk away from Commonwealth MRT station.It is opened by former Campus Superstar participant Renfred Ng, whom is also the barista of the cafe.I met Renfred during one of the blogging event and he was sharing that his new cafe will be opening on the month of September. Congrats to his new venture! My friend and I decided to drop for the waffles ice-cream.Ordering and payment are made at the cashier counter. The staff did the serving upon order. We ordered waffles S$5.00 with a scoop of Pistachio Ice-cream S$3.80. Unlike waffles in Creamier or Sunday Folks, the waffles are not very thick. Nevertheless, it tasted crispy and fluffy with their signature pistachio ice-cream.From the left: Hot Latte with art S$4.50 and Iced Latte S$6.00. All made by the down-to-earth cafe owner, Renfred. Fragrance light smell of the roasted coffee with well balance smoothing taste.If you are staying at the west side and needs a chill out and relaxing place nearby, The Milky Way would be one of the option. The cafe has quite a spacious place to accommodate people and cosy sofa at a corner. Quaint surroundings, what else can you ask for at a neighborhood place? continue reading

It seems that ice-cream parlours are the next in-thing these days; after all that hype of third-wave coffee movement joints opening across the island, this month sees a number of creameries sprouting across the island. Situated in the Tanglin Halt neighborhood, The Milky Way definitely makes for a great addition to the neighborhood. It is opened by former Campus Superstar participant Renfred Ng, who is mostly seen behind the espresso machine during my visit here.Having tried a few flavours, I found that I preferred the Sicilian Pistachio flavour. Made from Pistachios from Sicily, the ice-cream was smooth, creamy yet nutty without having a consistency too sweet nor milky; perfect for a cold treat. Waffles ($8.00 with a scoop of ice-cream) are served at half-portions here, and they serve waffles of the classic batter here. It’s strong on its buttery fragrance, and it’s fluffy interior makes it a delight to have. If ice-cream waffles are not your thing, there is also an option of Berry Compote to go along with them.Renfred Ng may be talented in singing, but he really pulls a great shot too. Flat White ($4.50) is not in the menu, but he would gladly serve one up if you ask. It’s light bodied nuttiness was well-balanced with creaminess; soothing.For more photos and the full review, please visit: http://jiaksimipng.wordpress.com/2014/09/01/the-milky-way-homemade-ice-cream-and-coffee-blk-48-commonwealth-drive/ continue reading
