Now that it’s summer time, everyone in Singapore is looking for a way to beat the heat before school days start again – from waterparks, to indoor playgrounds, to even backyard swimming pools – but one of the best ways to beat the heat is by simply chilling over ice cream.
Here are the some of the best local ice cream joints in Singapore that are definitely worth giving a try:
A Spoonful of Sugar
If you’re looking for ice cream and waffles, then head on over to A Spoonful of Sugar to enjoy both at the same time. Be sure to come hungry and chill out in their cozy environment while you watch them ‘cold fry’ their trademark chocolate combo customized just for you.
Holy Cow Creamery
Can’t get enough of waffles and ice cream? Holy Cow Creamery is sure to sate your hunger with plain and charcoal waffles, as well as classic ice cream flavors everyone is sure to love, such as cookies and cream and salted caramel (you should also keep an eye out for their salted caramel, which is definitely a notch or two above the rest).
Momolato’s specialty is their fruit sorbet popsicles that will have you coming back for more on a hot summer’s day – they’re also especially great if you’re looking to enjoy something that’s both sweet and healthy at the same time.
And who could forget the company that pioneered nitrogen ice cream (ice cream frozen using nitrogen is completely safe and delicious)? 320 below doesn’t just make everything from scratch to make sure everything is fresh just for you, but they can also whip up a mean ice cream sandwich.
