White Chocolate Nori

$3.60 · 25 Reviews

𝗪𝗵𝗶𝘁𝗲 𝗰𝗵𝗼𝗰𝗼𝗹𝗮𝘁𝗲 𝗻𝗼𝗿𝗶 - nori ice cream studded with white chocolate and almonds. The umami-ness of the nori definitely came through and worked to balance the sweetness of the ice cream (their ice creams are slightly on the sweeter side for me but still acceptable). Sweet, salty, crunchy.

𝗗𝗮𝗻𝗶𝘀𝗵 𝗰𝗼𝗼𝗸𝗶𝗲 is a spiced milk gelato with roasted pistachios and almonds. Not a fan of Christmas spices so I didn’t enjoy this.

Will get white choc nori again if I’m here. Ice cream are packed densely so it’s quite worth it for the price.

I didn't know my preference for unorthodox flavours was considered weird. So here you go. The former is savoury seaweed ice cream studded with white choc. The taste profile was so striking and I loved it. The latter tasted like pi pa gao lor.

it was my first time here so i must say i was pleasantly surprised when i found out we could fit two flavours into a single cup. the cup was also REALLY heavy so the ice cream is super creamy and dense. got the white chocolate nori and their special (partnered with mexican resturant superloco) called arroz con leche. the white chocolate nori was literally sweetened seaweed bits with white chocolate-covered almonds. took a while to get used to it bc it was a rather odd combination. the arroz con leche had a very exotic flavour, with mango purée and coconut notes. almost tasted thai!!

The white choc nori was really good - the briny taste from the seaweed went very well with the white chocolate, plus they added nuts (I’m a fan of a crunch element in ice creams)! It’s now one of my fav flavours at tom’s, along with rum & raisin, which I’ve previously reviewed :)

Granny’s favourite (choc malt, choc chips & cookie dough) was pretty malty, but it was rather average to me. Summer berries was sour and tart; it was pretty refreshing. Not my cup of tea though, I’ll prefer to get other flavours.

Texture-wise, these were all smooth and not icy. Tom’s is a great ice cream spot, and I’m glad they’re back on beyond!

Catch them today for the last time at Shaw Towers before they move to 51 Middle road! So glad they have found a new home, and for that, they are giving out free froyo with every ice cream purchase.

So we had our favourite white chocolate nori, the ever classic sweet and savoury combination with roasted almond. Also had their most popular flavour, Granny’s favourite. You would probably enjoy this creamy chocolate malt gelato, packed with chocolate chips and chunks of housemade cookie dough, if you are a milk chocolate fan.

Can’t go without the rum and raisin here too, made with their housemade rum & raisin paste and jamaican rum, and is packed with rum-soaked raisins. Don’t worry, it’s not too heavy on the alcohol, and especially enjoyable with the bitter sweet raisins. Lastly, if you are looking for a fruit flavour, I would recommend the refreshing, tarty Yuzu. Made with Yuzu juice imported directly from Japan, I like how it’s light peely taste complements with a heavier flavour.

Got another cup of white chocolate nori and pistachio ice cream for $4. The white chocolate nori was SURPRISINGLY good. It was sweet, salty and nutty—all rolled into one. It’s a unique flavour you definitely must try at Tom’s Palette.

Tom’s Palette will be moving out of Shaw Towers by March 31 2020, so hurry go and eat before they close! (They’ll be moving to a new location at Middle Road so lucky for us that we will still be able to enjoy delicious ice cream 🍦😋 )

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!
