White Chocolate Nori

$3.60 · 18 Reviews

This place is tucked away in the rundown Shaw building, but don’t let that stop you, Tom’s palette is renovated well and clean. Got the Rum & raisin with Chocolate tea, as well as the honey lavender with honey cinnamon. It had a gelato consistency and was packed with flavour. I especially loved the rum & raisin, i could really taste the sweet rum. The lavender had floral notes and the honey cinnamon was reminiscent of Auntie Annie’s cinnamon pretzels! $5 for 2x 4Oz cups is a steal. Come support Tom and enjoy his delicious ice-cream! Maybe even try the adventurous flavours like white chocolate nori.

One of my all-time favourite ice cream places, and a must-visit place in Bugis! Always looking forward to their rotating flavours because they never fail to disappoint. What’s more, with Burpple Beyond, 4 flavours for just $5!

Other than the usual white chocolate nori that never fails to amaze me with its unusual combination of sweet and briny flavours incorporated with white chocolate almond, we also had the triple coconut. Coconut lovers should not miss this coconut indulgence of coconut jelly, coconut flesh and coconut ice cream. You would be delighted to find the amount of coconut flesh hidden within!

Also had my first try on Pi Pa Gao and pineapple tarts flavours! The minty, herbal and less sweet pi pa gao ice cream was made using the Three Leg Brand’s Pi Pa Gao, mixed with ice cream custard. Something unusually comforting. Last but not least, the pineapple tarts flavour brought about some festive mood. According to the staff, they churn their own pineapple jam for this ice cream, and indeed, there were chunks of pineapple jam as well as the buttery tarts hidden in this flavour. Tropical, slightly sweet but it’s so unique that you just want to have it again.

Thanks to #burpplebeyond, the feeling of enjoying one of my favourite ice cream at half price was even sweeter! As Tom’s palette is hunting for a new location, be sure to catch them at Shaw Towers before the end of March 2020!

I would not have ventured to Shaw Towers without the Burpple app. And thanks to Burpple Beyond, we had a taste of our first Tom’s Palette ice cream.
.
Known for their quirky flavours like white chocolate nori (seaweed) and parmesan cheese, this ice cream shop was so crowded at dinner time. The 4oz ($5) comes with a choice of 2 flavours. I had to try the parmesan cheese and I chose to mix it with honey cinnamon. We also got the granny’s (Milo) and Roc Star (Ovaltine).
.
The parmesan cheese was savoury and surprisingly good, and it goes well since it’s essentially milk based too. However, it quickly became rather jelat for me. I really like the honey and cinnamon too, though it’s not as creative as the other flavours.
.
The chocolate based flavours that we chose were also really good, with big chunks of chocolate and biscuits.
.
This ice cream store is such a gem, do pop by soon, I heard it is closing down mid next year!

Value for money portions, fresh ice cream and unique flavours!

Nori was a little jelat after a while.

Using a base of Madagascar vanilla crème anglaise ice cream, it contains rose jelly in it and comes with an oolong tea sauce. Following up on that, Tom’s Palette will be launching a tie guan yin with coffee popcorn ice cream, in collaboration with Parchmen & Co., on 20 and 21 September. In addition to these limited time offerings, previously discontinued flavours will be brought back by popular demand such as the Melt & Sizzle and Red Wine Sorbet, both on 27 and 28 September.

For more permanent offerings, Tom’s Palette has launched three new flavours such as Parmesan Cheese & Cream Crackers, White Chocolate Nori and Pipagao, available right now at the café.

This combination sounds unusual but there’s that umami flavour in the ice cream. I liked how the white chocolate coated almonds gave the ice cream that extra crunch too.

And again, trip to Tom’s Palette before they shut their doors next June! It’s a pity that they have no plans for relocation currently.

This week, the rotation of flavours had some peculiar flavours like the white chocolate nori back while hazelnut latte that I really enjoyed on the last visit wasn’t available. Excited to see my favourite chocolate, After Eight, as one of the flavours. Milky chocolate with a mix of lingering sweet mint, but it would even be better with dark chocolate. Hence, I was recommended the non-dairy chocolate sorbet, which was nothing but an intense dark chocolate of depth. Dark chocolate lovers are bound to fall in love with this flavour!

The other 2 flavours we chose were the peanut butter cookie, which I don’t really fancy though I have to admit that it tasted like a salty creamy peanut butter indeed, and a sweet-sour musky soursop flavour.

Trust this 15-year Shaw Tower resident for some of the tastiest gelato around. You're in for a treat with the wacky and unapologetic flavours here, like the White Chocolate Nori ($3.60) – think nori (Japanese seaweed) infused into a creamy milk based ice cream with white chocolate-coated almond chunks tossed in. The Parmesan Cheese ($3.60), made with parmigiano reggiano and cream crackers, is another fun flavour to try.

Surprised to really enjoy the Pulut hitam as I initially thought the combination was really weird. The mango blends in well with the thick texture and richness of the black glutinous. Typically love all the diary flavors they come up with like Kinako, Soy bean etc and this is no exception!! Ceylon tea (also diary free) is good too!

Quite saddened to hear that the building will be torn down mid of next year and there are no plans yet to relocate at the moment. Devastating news in fact. Tom’s palette has been around for 15 years, taking us on so many innovative and adventurous ice cream journeys one can only dream of.

Where will you ever find bold ice cream flavors like Pi Pa Gao, Rojak, Lei ca (Thunder tea rice), Tau Cheong Rocky Road, Chee Cheong Fun 😢

We got the white chocolate nori, hojicha, salted caramel cheesecake and savoury crunch! The textures were great- sort of chewy and elastic and yet creamy and soft 😍 The shop also home makes all its ice cream from scratch with an assortment of 180 flavors and changes up their selection every other day!
