We decided to try a new flavour today and we thought the strawberry basil flavour would be a really interesting one! Unsurprisingly, the strawberry taste was dominant but the flavour was great because the strawberry taste was relatively light and it is not overwhelming. 😁 The basil taste was really mild and provides a herby undertone to the ice cream although it would certainly be interesting if more basil were used.

As usual, the thyme cone is great and we would strongly encourage everyone to pay that extra bit for the cone. You won't regret getting it! 😁

Michelin-recommended ice cream ~

🍴:
Strawberry Basil - Was afraid that the basil will spoil the taste but I wanted to be adventurous and wow it was indeed quite interesting for the first bite. Can really taste the very subtle basil herb. But after a few mouths, my tastebuds got accustomed to it and totally can’t taste any basil (kinda sad because wanted to taste more of the interesting basil in my ice cream) The strawberry taste was good. As though I was eating strawberry cake. But nothing too wow about it. I still prefer apiary strawberry ice cream.

Pistachio - Ordered pistachio which is what most people recommended and glad that I got that despite being $1 more for premium. The roasted pistachio taste was very prominent and nutty, as though I was eating the pistachio nut directly. I would say it’s similar to Celine’s Gelato. Likewise, would have been better if there were some pistachio bits within.

For the ice cream texture, the scoops were of good consistency. It’s smooth and soft but not the entirely creamy kind. I don’t really like those that are too creamy because it can get jelak (as though eating cream). This was just nice!

And of course a big shoutout for the CONE! EVERYONE PLEASE GET THE CONE IF YOU EVER VISIT BOP. It’s thick with a good crunch but yet not too hard (the ice cream kinda soften it a bit) and has the nice buttery taste (like butter waffle biscuit). THE MOST AMAZING PART IS THE THYME! Never would I have ever thought that thyme cone can be so interesting. Though it might be an acquired taste, the taste wasn’t too overpowering so it was really pleasant. Every bite has the nice thyme taste and didn’t really clash with the ice cream flavours. Amazing creation!

💵:
Paid $10 for 2 scoops (1 premium + 1 standard) with cone

🌟:
Ratings 4.5/5 (5/5 for the thyme cone!)
“Hands down to the most unique ice cream cone! 🤩”

Opted for a change of flavour this time round and chose black sesame

as usual, BOP ice cream are always pretty light on the palette. i kinda enjoyed this flavour too

BUT WHITE CHRYSANTHEMUM REMAINS THE TOP!!!

This chrysanthemum gelato has a floral infusion of chrysanthemum florets and sprinkled with cacao nibs, a superfood that is rich in antioxidants and nutrients. It comes with a light unique flavour with a subtle fragrance. Very creamy in texture and refreshing on your palate. It goes very well with their thyme cone that is very fragrant with a light crunch 》$6

Still my favorite gelato place in the east 💗 their botanical ice cream never disappoints☺️ I didn’t know it’s a @michelinguide ice cream place?! And apparently their cups are made from sugarcane pulp which is sustainable 👍 can never resist buying a scoop every time I walk past😍

Birds of Paradise, a boujie gelato boutique located in the East Coast, is a popular local favourite and always comes up in conversations about 🍦!

Today, during an afternoon drive, we shortlisted our flavours and decided to try it out!!! Knowing my luck, it started POURING, and by pouring, I mean it felt like someone was LITERALLY floating above my head and throwing buckets of water on me.

Lychee & Raspberry
Light pink, floral, and fruity! This flavour is really refreshing and tastes like summer! However, it took me a while to get the lychee flavour, but the traces raspberry was very strong.

Spiced Pear 🍐
What? Wow! Omg, this one was a clear winner. The strongest flavour of the three I tried. The fresh flavour of the fruit paired with the spice complimented each other perfectly. The tiny chunks of pear added a tiny crunch!

White Chrysanthemum
Not too sure what I was expecting when I ordered this BEST SELLER flavour, but I do not regret it AT ALL. Every bite tasted like I was eating a flower field, it was delicate and sweet. I loved the tiny cocoa nibs that remained crunchy even as the gelato melted towards the end.

Thyme Waffle Cone
The sprigs of thyme folded into the batter is one of the most unusual, but creative twists to waffle cones. I loved how it complimented every flavour and toned down the sweetness. The best part was that it remained crunchy!

Overall, I thought the flavours were really subtle. Which in some ways is good because the scoops are really generous and you can enjoy the mild flavour over a longer period of time.
The scoops were REALLY big, omg what, I’m a slow ice cream/gelato eater so it took a while and started melting hahaha oops.

🌱: I really appreciated that the spoon and cup were biodegradable. This sustainable touch made me feel better about settling for a cup!

💸: Single Cup = $5, Double Cone = $9

⚠️: Located on East Coast road so it’s quite hard to access with a car. $$$ (but the scoops are quite big).

✨: 4/5

Memory/highlight: great range of flavours, you are spoilt for choice!
