Archipelago Creamery is one ice-cream parlour that had recently sprouted in the Nanyang neighbourhood at Jurong West, housed within the grounds of Nanyang Community Centre. It has opened its door about one week ago.This ice cream palor is a good hideout from the hot and sunny weather. It is a few minutes walk from pioneer mrt and stone away from many schools and institute such as NTU, thus you will spot many students during the day. The café has a white interior with nautical themed using anchor
The menu can be easily read from the colourful chalkboard hang at the ice cream fridge.The menu can be easily read from the colourful chalkboard hang at the ice cream fridge. We went here for two different instant so that we can try their shibuya toast as well as waffles. We have order the Strawberry & Chocolate Flavour Shibuya Toast. It comes with whipped cream, fresh strawberries, thick toast two scoop of vanilla ice cream (it was kind of fixed) and drizzled with chocolate Sauce.
After trying the Famous Shibuya Toast from After You, Bangkok, I find that the toast here needs to be toasted slightly longer, as it was not crispy enough. The inner of the toast was soft and fluffy thus if the outer is more crispy, it would helps to create the taste texture. When you cut open the toast, you will be able to discover nicely cut bread toast within.The ice cream was smooth and creamy with the presence of vanilla beans. Strawberries & Chocolate Shibuya Toast ($14.80)
Charcoal waffle happens to be the daily special for that day when we revisit the place. So we order the charcoal waffles with double scoop. For premium flavor, add $1 to each scoop. I find that the charcoal waffle was not thick and fluffy enough, perhaps due to the small scoop of batter being used. Nevertheless, the side was crispy. The pistachio and the blueberries ice cream were great as they are fragrant and creamy. Charcoal Waffle ( Daily Special, $5) + Double Scoop ( $6.50) + 2 premium flavor ($2)
The Lychee moroccan rose tea was interesting. You can smell light aroma of rose couple when drinking the sweet black tea. The lychee gives a very light after taste in our mouth after drinking. Lychee moroccan rose ($7)
Westside-er no longer need to travel far to enjoy ice creams and shibuya toast. This neighborhood hideout can definitely be your alternative choice.
