Waffles and Ice Cream

Perfectly round, generous scoops reposed on a waffle is what hump day dreams are made of <3 ($11.60)

The ice cream here is really a labor of love; it has a homemade feel to it. The butterscotch pecan is one of their weekly specials and it was amazing; that rich, savory brown butter flavor with just a hint of saltiness. It was creamy and studded with huge pecan chunks, providing that lovely contrast in texture. The coconut too, had shreds of actual coconut flesh in it and the whiff of coconut aftertaste was pretty strong. It was a little too icy for my taste though, especially paired with the waffle.

The waffle was freshly made to order, and crisp enough. However, I felt that it was missing that fluffy interior and flavor that make other ice cream parlors' waffles superior. Still, it made a good pairing with the ice cream.

Not the best plate of ice cream and waffles out there. But still, A for effort and the comfortable, homely little cafe and ambience. :)

I love these HDB ice cream parlors; they seem to have a personality and coziness to them that is different from that of the cafe enclaves. This is their Belgian waffle with two scoops of ice cream, and it is affordable at just $12.40

The Little Nyonya is essentially Geometry's take on the popular sea salt gula melaka. I loved it because the gula melaka added a layer of a slightly toasted, coconutty flavor. The salt flavor could be just a tad stronger. The Pistachio flavor tasted very 'raw', with a hint of not-very-pleasant bitterness. There were some chunks of actual pistachio nut folded into the ice cream though. The ice cream was smooth without being overly rich, with a perfect, gorgeous texture.

And the Belgian waffle was really good too. Made to order, it had a crisp exterior and a wonderful vanilla fragrance. It was fluffy on the inside (although I wish it could be a tad fluffier) and paired beautifully with the ice cream. My mom and fellow ice cream explorer left very happy and satisfied indeed.

Ah, such a classic. A big swirl of pistachio-infused soft serve with a sprinkle of pistachio crumbles and two Lotus biscuits as a topping. ($11.50)

The Lotus biscuit and the soft serve make such a good pairing. <3 Take the biscuit and run it through the soft serve, and the sweet cinnamony, gingerbread flavor of the Lotus biscuit makes such a good accompaniment to the earthiness of the pistachio.

The soft serve itself was really good. Strong but not overpowering nutty flavor with that perfect balance of creaminess. And the waffles, of course, were delicious even on a busy Friday night. Really props to Sunday Folks' consistency and a really well-thought, perfectly-executed dessert.

This was a nostalgic throwback to childhood days, with Milo flavored soft serve, milo powder and Maltesers paired with one of Sunday Folks' crispy waffles ($14.50)

I wish the Milo flavor was more gao. It had a very mild milky, chocolate flavor, but that was really all I could gather from the soft serve. I wish it had some of the malty taste so characteristic of Milo drink. However, the soft serve and the toppings paired really well; the crunch of the Malteser with the chunks of Milo powder. I'm just not sure it was worth the price point or if I'd prefer their classic flavors which are cheaper.

Waffles were amazing as usual. A gorgeous rich buttermilk base, crisped to perfection and drizzled with maple syrup.

This lovely aesthetically appealing dessert consisted of a large round waffle topped with blue and yellow hued ice cream and drizzled with chocolate syrup and honey ($13.60)

The waffle itself was light, crispy and airy. Almost too light, I felt it could have used some density in the batter. Still, they had nailed the brown butter flavor with that slight tinge of rich saltiness in the waffle's aftertaste, which somehow managed to stand out from the ice cream and sweet syrup.

The blue pea milk tasted so super decadent and rich. I loved the gorgeous creamy texture of the ice cream. It was lightly salted, resembling salted caramel (my fave flavor). Despicable is banana flavored ice cream with brownie and walnut bits folded in. I never knew such a flavor combination could taste so good. The ice cream retained its creamy texture but the bits of brownie resulted in pops of bittersweet chocolate flavor in my mouth and the walnuts contributed with their earthiness and their crunch.

All in all, a lovely comfortable hole in the wall cafe with good waffles but mindblowingly delicious ice cream. :)

My dining partner and I literally inhaled thus $15 dessert haha. It was that GOOD.

That crispy, thick, fluffy made-to-order waffle with that hint of savoriness from the brown butter and a mild flowery aftertaste from a sprinkle of dried lavender. The kicker is really the salted caramel sauce drizzle, which really elevated the flavor of both waffle and ice cream, gave it complexity and body.

As for the ice cream, it was really good as well. The shoyu caramel just tasted like...salted caramel and I was rather grateful for that as to taste the soybean-based shoyu in your ice cream would have been...strange. But still really delicious and rich and creamy. The chocolate ice cream was good too, with a strong but perfectly balanced chocolate flavor, not too bitter and not too sweet.

Fatcat is really everything its hyped up to be. A tiny, cosy cafe in the heartlands of Bedok serving creative desserts made with love and care.

Aaaaaah...Creamier never disappoints. I had to try their Little White Rabbit ice cream, and took it as an excuse to order their famous waffles πŸ™ƒ, which were just as delicious as I remember. My dining partner selected the honey lemon yuzu sorbet as his choice of waffle topping, coming up to $14.20 for this huge stack of deliciousness.

Made to order, the waffles were definitely the highlight of the dessert. They were warm, fluffy and thick with a crispy crunch, and provided the perfect contrast with the ice cream. They were served with a drizzle of chocolate and maple syrup. I always applaud Creamier for their consistency, churning out delicious waffles every time despite the long queue of orders.

The Little White Rabbit was so adorable, with a little piece of rice paper stuck on top for a complete effect. Consuming the rich, milky ice cream with the rice paper was the ultimate sense of nostalgia. I do wish the white rabbit candy taste could be stronger, however I do appreciate the fact that it wasn't too sweet.

The al fresco seating area is cosy and warm, and the cafe is comfortably decorated with efficient yet friendly staff. Creamier is definitely my favorite place for one of my favorite desserts of all time. :)

Waffles and ice cream has got to be one of my favorite sweet treats, the warm waffle with cold ice cream is a match made in heaven. I particularly adore smothering each waffle pocket with ice cream and dredging it in toppings to form the perfect bite. <3

The Daily Scoop's version came in a set costing $7 and was dusted with powdered sugar and drizzled generously with chocolate syrup. The made to order waffle was warm, soft and aromatic but lacked that crispy, crunchy exterior that is the signature of a perfect waffle (perhaps the cooking process was slightly rushed; it was a busy Friday night). But the ice cream was delicious; a salted caramel base with bits of chocolate brownie folded in. The perfect mix of sweet and salty, with a hint of bitterness from the chocolate in the brownie. It was delightfully creamy and smooth as well, spreading almost like butter into the warm waffle. I found myself wishing I had ordered another scoop of a different flavor to try. πŸ˜…

Not perfect, but definitely satisfactory for the price and good enough to quell my buzzing sweet tooth :)

The waffles were light, airy and had the most delectable crispy crunch to them. I personally would have preferred the waffles to be a little bit denser, but they were still a perfect balance to the creamy, rich gelato and not too sweet or eggy. I liked the extra chocolate and caramel drizzle as a final touch.

The 1 for 1 entitled us to a free premium scoop, and so we chose Macademia and Blondie Beach ice cream (the latter for its slight similarity to my personal favorite, salted caramel) for a total $9.60 including the waffle. I was impressed by the generous portion heaped onto the waffle and gelato's texture, stretchy and creamy without melting too fast. The Macademia gelato was gao with the familiar strong aftertaste of macademia nut while Blondie Beach had really distinct flavors of white chocolate and lime with a slightly salty aftertaste. I was really blown away by the latter because the different flavors were distinct and layered but still came together and tasted really amazing. I'm all about contrasting flavors in food, so this was a great effort in that.

The ambience was cosy, clean and the service staff were attentive and friendly. Appreciated the free water and the fact that they use metal spoons to let you taste the ice cream :)

A craving for ice cream led me to this cosy neighbourhood gelato place where I ordered crispy waffles topped with pistachio gelato studded with chocolate bits. ($9.70) I adored the addition of the chocolate as it gave a varied texture to the otherwise one-dimensional ice cream and paired well with the nutty flavor of the gelato. However, the pistachio flavor wasn't as strong as I would have liked, it was more of an aftertaste? Also, while the waffles were freshly made, warm and made a good base to soak up the ice cream, they lacked that crispy crunch I expected. Still, craving satisfied. :)

Also, my dining partner ordered an iced mocha to go with our waffles. It tasted so bad and diluted (think melted kopitiam ice milo with a hint of coffee) we didn't take more than a few sips. And I'm the kind of diner where unfinished food is usually a travesty to me, that's how terrible that drink was. Also, the service rly wasn't as good as it could be.

We used the Chope 1 for 1 voucher. The Milky Way is a hole in a wall cafe tucked away in a HDB estate in Commonwealth. My mother and I enjoyed the cute decor and friendly wait staff who helped us sort out our voucher.

The waffles were freshly made to order and the amazing smell permeated the cafe. They came crispy and hot, drizzled with maple syrup. We got to choose 2 flavors of ice cream and went with pistachio and sea salt caramel. The pistachio flavor was really gao with a distinct nutty taste (fans of pistachio will love this, like I did). The sea salt balanced out the sweetness of the caramel and seemed to make the ice cream extra creamy and smooth. They went perfectly with the eggy waffles.

An indulgent cheat day treat and my mother left with a full belly and satisfied cravings.
