Ice Cream Fix

I cannot resist anything sweet, what more ice cream? Ice cream to me, is comfort food (even when i am sick and bed ridden). With so many new establishments of ice cream parlors in town, i am always spoilt for choice. Better still some of them come with warm crispy waffles - that is when i tell myself life cannot get any better.

Ice Cream Chefs

Ice Cream Chefs is not a new kid on the block when it comes to ice cream. With flavors such as Kaya and Milk Tea, which happens to be one of my favorite, you'll be glad to also know they allow you to sample the flavors. Also, they allow mix-ins (they mix your ice cream on a cold stone with your preferred mix-in), which comes in forms of chocolate and cereals.

Salted Caramel Artisan Ice Cream

Going to Salted Caramel once is enough to make you fall in love with their ice cream (as well as their waffles). I love how their waffles are made freshly on the spot upon ordering. Alongside that, their flavors are pretty unique, you get alcoholic flavors such as Baileys, and non-alcoholic flavors like Horlicks Tim Tam, both of which are my favorite. The only down side is that their flavors are not consistent, which also means you might not get the same flavor each time you visit.

Udders Ice Cream

Udders Ice Cream needs no introduction if you an avid ice cream fan. Having branched out more outlets, it is now easier to get your hands on their ice cream. If you are typically Singaporean, you should try their durian ice cream, which consists of bits and pieces of fresh durian. They do not do waffles as well as i expected them to do, but some of their outlets serve pancakes, which i think goes just as well with their ice cream. Best part - their outlet at Upper Thomson opens till 2am daily, which also means if can get your ice cream fix even if it is past midnight.

Cold Stone Creamery

At Cold Stone Creamery, you get a free "show" from buying your ice cream (they toss and throw your ice cream). With a lot of different creations available, you will not find yourself having to down boring flavors like vanilla and chocolate. Queues can be pretty long at Cold Stone Creamery during the weekends, and wait time can be up to 20 minutes, but the wait is worthwhile once you get your hands on a cup of ice cream. And yes, i highly recommend you to go for the waffle (which fits nicely in a cup) as well.

Ice Cream Gallery

I happened to walk into Ice Cream Gallery out of curiosity and walked out satisfied. They offer homemade ice cream at pretty decent prices, as well as flavors such as sea salt caramel and pistachio. There was really nothing to complain about their ice cream since they also allow you to taste them before you make your decision. However, the place is pretty small so you might not get a seat during peak hours.

Right now you can go ahead and take your pick, get yourself satisfied, and thank me later.
