Quite liked the chamomile flavour, it was mellow and soothing. I've never had a chamomile ice cream before. Could see the bits of the chamomile flower in it. It paired well with the honey and subtle sweetness of blue pea. Extra points that it was a pretty colour.

Cold brew coffee w cocoa nibs was alright, the coffee taste was present but not too strong. But I’ve had better coffee ice cream (gelatiamo!!)

Texture can be improved, tho smooth it's kinda thin. But also bc of that it's quite light and not too filling. It'll do on a hot day when I want something cold, and I’ll only visit if I'm around the area, not make a special trip for.

Celebrating Chinese New Year with a festive sweet treat. The Nian Gao Waffles ($6.80) is a waffle-y twist to the traditional rice cake (年糕) where a similar version has the rice cake layered and fried with yam and sweet potato.

This was definitely one of the best waffles I've ever had - crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside with a layer of sticky sweet middle layer. The soft chewiness of the rice cake added a distinct textural constrast with slight sweetness to it. Atop the waffles is a double scoop ($8) of ice cream comprising of Coffee Cold Brew with Cacao Bits and Earl Grey Lavender. The Coffee Cold Brew ice cream was absolutely delish like having an affogato. It was smooth, rich, creamy with a pronounced bitterness and slight sweetness to it, which paired incredibly well with waffle.

Have been wanting to try the NIAN GAO WAFFLES ($6.80) and it didn’t disappoint! Crispy on the outside with the right amount of sweetness and chewiness inside. Also tried the TIE GUAN YIN ($3.80) ice cream which complemented the waffles and allowed it to shine with its lighter profile, though I’d recommend picking another flavour as it’s nothing too special

The taste of the tie guan yin was discernible, which was unexpected because many places have their tea flavoured ice cream (oolong usually) way too subtle. The truffle chocolate however, was a letdown as it tasted like cheap chocolate / cocoa powder. Texture of both ice creams were okay, it could have been slightly creamier but I’m glad it wasn’t flat and thin. Waffles were okay, it was crisp on the outside. It’s on the more airy side though, I prefer a fluffier waffle. Overall it’s quite average, not bad but also not great.

Crisp waffle, interesting ice cream flavours! We ordered the strawberry and the Chrysanthemum and goji berry ice cream. Flavours were good, love their selection of very unique flavours. Would be back!

Note that shop has moved to #01-08.

I travel out of the north quite a fair bit for food usually, but Just Because Creamery is one of the few ice-cream parlours I would most certainly visit if I do have the time to travel out of Woodlands, but just not beyond the realms of Yishun.

Had been visiting them since the days where they were just a hole-in-the-wall shop at Victory8, but the Honey Citron is something that I have skipped having since then considering I have other favourites such as their Black Sesame Soy Milk, Tie Guan Yin and Chrysanthemum with Goji Berry, just to name a few. For a Honey Citron lover like me who seemingly keeps a jar of the said marmalade in the fridge to standby when the craving hits, this was an utter joy to have — think a milk-based ice-cream that is smooth and creamy, yet churned together with honey citron marmalade for that light, zesty, sweetness that is fairly rich, yet surprisingly refreshing especially after a meal; comes full with the fibres of the citron flesh to chew on even. Yet another flavour to add on to the list that I would crave for whilst being here in the future — and almost every flavour here seemingly just hits the spot for me. And that experience has to end with their handmade waffle cones; made fresh in-house daily, these are crisp and lightly buttery, and goes well with any of their ice-cream flavours unlike the trendy herb-infused cones that are rather popular of the late.

Just Because Creamery is pretty much a hidden gem in the north — there are other more established ice-cream parlours around no doubt, but I have always enjoyed how innovative they are with their flavours, and how they are also able to churn out ice-creams that are consistently smooth and creamy, yet refreshing; a plus considering the various zichar establishments around it. No doubt it may be quite a trek for most to give it them a visit, but they are most certainly worthy of making the trip down for — especially given how they have a proper dine-in area ever since their move to another unit within Victory8 several months ago!
