With the current promotion of a free single classic scoop with the purchase of waffle with double scoops, I managed to redeem a free scoop of HOUJICHA along with the waffle set. A recently introduced new flavour (and the main reason I was here for), the houjicha ice cream comes with a distinct, lingering roasted flavour and aroma which I adore. Of course, not the best houjicha ice cream I’ve had but I was glad the flavour turned out to be much better than I had expected! In addition to that, we chose Kyoto matcha as well as Bailey’s & bourbon for the other scoops. The former had recently been modified and improved from the previous recipe, using matcha powder imported from Kyoto. True enough, the characteristic earthy note was more profound , coupled with a lingering, pleasant bitter undertone, much better than the previous version which I had many years back! 👍🏻 The bailey’s & bourbon is an alcoholic flavour and hence only available for sale to those above 18. Note that the staff may request to check your IC prior to order- hoping they did for me but seems like I don’t look that young anymore 🙈🙈. Fortunately, the alcohol content was still manageable for me and not too overwhelming. On the downside, the waffles here were a tad underwhelming. Though the texture is on point with a crisp exterior and a soft, fluffy interior, the batter lacked the characteristic fragrance that I would have adored. It was slightly stale imo but thank goodness for those triple scoops of smooth, creamy delight that compensated for it! ✨ .
