Island Creamery

Entrance of Island Creamery

We all love ice cream and more so if it comes in our favourite flavours.

After eating chocolate ice cream for so long, it becomes a tad boring at some times so what better way to engage the masses than to offer local flavours? Island Creamery is one such ice cream place that's doing just that.

It used to be located at a corner of Serene Centre. Well it's still in the building but they've just moved next door to a bigger premise. It was a lovely surprise. You see, I visited the place a couple of times last year while it was still at the small corner. I was pleased to see the shift. Look how lovely it looks now!

Anyway this place is known for serving ice cream in interesting and local flavours. Think teh tarik and tiger beer sorbet. You can't get these flavours elsewhere i tell you.

Just a few days ago I popped by and saw that they had pineapple tart and pulut hitam flavour. I just had to try them both.

Guess what, they rock!

Pineapple Tart & Pulut Hitam Ice Cream

The taste was simply authentic! You could actually taste and bite into real chunks of pineapple tart (my favorite CNY goodie!). As for the pulut hitam, it was akin to drinking a bowl of the real thing. Fantastic. I know the pineapple tart was made especially for this festive season. I hope they keep it on the menu permanently. The thing about their ice cream is that it's made on the premises everyday and very fresh. Not too expensive too. $4 for double scoop.

What are you waiting for? Time to head down and spoil yourself silly. You deserve it! :)

P.S. They sell ice cream cakes and mud pies too! So you can order your next birthday cake from them.

Hmm. I shall make note of this place and go there the next time I travel to Singapore. In Vancouver we have an all natural ice cream parlor called La Casa Gelato. They serve the craziest flavours. Take Curry for instance. It may not be the greatest flavour but they manage to do it.

I'm a big fan of durian ice cream myself. I don't know how people can hate it. It smells like hell but tastes like heaven.

Hey! I was just about to blog about this place too! I was there yesterday without any money and i was pleasantly surprised with their credit note that they give to their customers. incidentally, i also sampled pineapple tart ice cream and the pulut hitam, oh and i had the teh tarik. I'm going back again today because i still owe them money :)
