The cafe is bustling over the weekends! Have heard rave reviews about the ice cream here, but it fell short of expectations. Bought a double scoop ($6.90 + $1 per premium flavour) of rum & raisin and lychee martini. The first was a tad too sweet, albeit balanced by bitter alcohol-soaked raisins. Enjoyed the small pieces of lychee in the latter but found it a little too icy!

I’m a big fan of Edith’s cakes and brownies, so I was really excited to try their new offerings! Served in a cone and drizzled with honey, the soft serve ($4) is light, slightly sweet and floral. The ice cream is a tad icy but otherwise very enjoyable! Do catch their opening promo of 15% off until 18/04/21 :-)

Returned to try more flavours! Scoops ($4.80) are large and creamy; some options seem to melt more quickly. Chrysanthemum Honey (pictured) had the requisite flavour but felt lacking with its overt sweetness and absence of textural variation. Moka coffee was a let down - the strong taste of creamer made it akin to 3-in-1 coffee.

Ordered a double scoop ($6.50, + $0.70 per premium flavour). Grape yakult and pistachio both had great flavours, but were too icy. Scoops were also badly done - many air pockets within and the ice cream crumbled due to its icy consistency.

Ordered a double scoop ($6.50, + $0.70 per premium flavour). The hojicha had a strong roasted flavour but it was terribly icy. Valrhona chocolate remains my favourite - thick, rich and creamy!

Here’s another double scoop ($8, + $1 per gourmet flavour / + $2 per alcoholic flavour) - this one features my favourite flavours at gelatolabo thus far. Caribbean rum with charred pineapple packs the heat of alcohol but I especially loved the bright burst of smokey sweetness! Their seasonal Spanish persimmon was also incredible - this one melted quite quickly but it had lots of fruit fibre and the most lovely honeyed sweetness.

Ordered a double scoop ($8, + $1 per gourmet flavour / + $2 per alcoholic flavour) of some of their signature flavours! The dark chocolate with orange peel was rich with a hint bitterness and tinged with citrus. The colombian cold brew was particularly impressive - a strong coffee flavour with a creamy mouth feel! Would be nice to have more cookie bits within.

This was an unexpectedly good find! Each scoop is huge and I was surprised to see a steady stream of customers even on a weekday night. Ordered single scoops ($4.60) - the pistachio is a tad sweet but has the most fragrant roasted flavour! Dark chocolate was very thick but did not taste as premium as I’d expect. Looking forward to trying more flavours!

Been a few years since I last visited, and Apiary is still going strong with a perpetual crowd! Ordered a double scoop ($8 + $0.50 per premium flavour) of their signature and ferrero rocher. The Apiary flavour has the mild sweetness of milk, balanced by a slightly bitter tinge of cacao nibs. The honey is not explicit and it’s a bit of a pity that they no longer pair it with nuts! Ferrero rocher tastes exactly like its name suggests - very rich with wafer and nuts within.

Be prepared to wait twenty minutes to enter the shop! The queue is very well managed and staff are friendly. Unfortunately, I don’t quite see the appeal. Whilst creamy, the ice cream is far too sweet and artificial tasting. Opted for single scoops ($5) of yam and black sesame - their signatures would probably fare better but I doubt I’d be heading back any time soon!

Ordered a double scoop ($7.60 + $1 per premium flavour) on a waffle bowl ($1) - didn’t like these flavours as much. The houjicha was a tad too sweet, albeit smokey and rich. The dark forest tasted like Meiji chocolate milk with some bites of chocolate cake and pieces of cherries - no hint of brandy at all and certainly not worth the premium!

Never quite liked the Salted Caramel at Thomson, but decided to give this new outlet a try. Was very very pleasantly surprised at how decadent their ice cream is now! Opted for a double scoop ($7.60 + $1 per premium flavour) on a waffle bowl ($1). The rum & raisin packs the heat of alcohol but rounds it off nicely with juicy sweetness. The pistachio is rich and creamy, with large chunks of nuts folded within!
