Tucked quietly at an inconspicuous corner at East Coast Road, this was definitely a rare gem spotted. The owners of the ice cream parlour were friendly and took special efforts to strike up conversation with each and every customer, be it a walk-in like us or the regular patrons. The casual setting of the ice cream place with stools fit for adults and kids alike is surely a must-try spot if you are along the Katong eating district.

Chendol | S$6.50/-
Always a fan of our Singapore desserts such as chendol and ice kachang, this almost became a must-try when I spotted it on the menu. The salted gula melaka ice cream was extremely rich and bold in flavours and certainly won my palate over. Paired with the usual sweet red beans, pandan jelly and attap seeds, it was almost reinventing the usual chendol enjoyed at a hawker stall onto this innocent looking plastic cup.
Red Ruby | S$6.50/- One of the newer creations that was added onto the menu, the Red Ruby is a familiar dessert for most but under the influence of the liquid nitrogen, the dessert was reinvented, almost. With flesh scraped from the young coconut, the sweet coconut water was used in the making of the coconut ice cream. The addition of coconut milk enriched the flavours and made it a lot more robust. The icing for me was the diced water chestnut coated in a thin jelly that added crunch to each mouthful. Yes, it was definitely on the sweeter side but isn't that the whole point of having a dessert, to cure our sweet tooth craving? While we still crave for the lovely scoops down at Chin Chin Lab in London, I think we found our next best in Singapore, for now.
