Single scoop gelato on crispy brown waffles with mini marshmallows, rainbow sprinkles, drizzle of chocolate sauce and icing sugar.

I tried the Yubari Rock Melon and Hokkaido Milk gelato which were both thick and creamy. The Yubari Rock Melon was refreshing and milky, just like a combination of rockmelon and milk while the Hokkaido Milk gelato is just something simple, creamy and milky that won’t go wrong with waffles. The staff is friendly and helpful in recommending flavours based on one’s taste buds/preferences. Sampling is also available upon request. I also had both the peach and rose organic tea which was fragrant, refreshing and helps to cleanse the palate after some sweet treat.

It’s a nice place to chill and relax. The shop is open till late at night (2AM on Fri & Sat), good for some late-night sweet treat.

Coconut ice cream served in coconut husk with three toppings. I choose aloe vera, coconut meat and data de coco to go along with my order. Additional option for add-ons is also available. The coconut ice cream was thick and creamy but lacked the fragrance and richness of coconut flavour. Their beverage probably fared better for a cool and refreshing treat to beat the heat 》$4.90

Not forgetting to end the meal with their East-Meets-West dessert made with sago and coconut ice cream with gula melaka to complete your meal on a sweet note.

No trying hence it was a really tough choice choosing flavours. I decided not to be adventurous and went with the flavours that were recommended. I got their signature milk & honey and pistachio gelato with waffles.

The milk and honey flavour was good and tasted similar to honeycomb. Pistachio was creamy but not as nutty as expected. The waffles are soft and crispy on the outside but get a little dry inside. The price is also relatively steep for the serving size. They are located just behind Bedok 85 and may be an ideal place for some cold and sweet treats after dinner. They are also open past midnight and are great for those who live in the East.

Besides the photo-worthy neon signs, Icebar offers a limited selection of gelatos with unique flavours. They are also open late till 2AM on Fridays to Sundays for you to get some late-night ice cream. The gelato here is priced at $4.20 for a classic scoop, $5.20 for premium, $6.20 for super premium flavours and additional scoops for $3.70.

I went with their recommended flavour of grape Yakult (premium) which was supposed to be light on the palate while Binggrae banana (premium) for something milky. The grape Yakult flavour feels light with a very faint grape Yakult flavour. I would love it if they add more grape Yakult into it. The Binggrae banana was creamy and milky, something expectable and not too far off from the actual beverage.

The waffles here are fragrant and flavourful. It is light and airy on the inside, crispy on the outside and goes well with ice cream and maple syrup. I tried the honey chrysanthemum with cacao nibs (premium flavour) and Sicilian pistachio with pistachio bits (gourmet flavour) to go along with waffles. The texture of both flavours was smooth and creamy with the flavours for pistachio being stronger than the former. I like the pistachio for its slightly roasted and nutty flavour while chrysanthemum with cacao nibs simply reminds me of BOP for its refreshing and light flavours but the one they have here is milkier.

They serve two types of waffles - buttermilk/pandan gula melaka. Each order of waffles includes one complimentary sauce which we get to choose from the classic maple syrup, childhood milo or house-made jam.

I got myself the buttermilk waffle with maple syrup, topped with genmaicha (classic) and oolong osmanthus (premium) gelato served on traditional old-school rooster plates. The waffles are done crispy on the outside, light and fluffy on the inside. Genmaicha gelato was expectable and nothing to shout about but the oolong osmanthus fared better with a refreshing, light and creamy texture.

No Horse Run is a cosy little cafe that opens till 2AM daily serving artisanal gelato and waffles in the heartlands of Yishun but getting a table during busy hours is challenging as they have very limited seats available. I had to wait for more than 30mins to get a table past midnight and another 30mins for my food to be served after ordering.

It’s another cosy little ice cream shop around Kovan that is open till 2AM for the late-night owls. They were quite packed after dinner with limited seatings for dine-in.

I gave the grape yakult flavour a try since it was recommended by the staff. It was nothing out of the ordinary to shout about. The texture of the ice cream was icy and the milky flavour kind of overpowered the weak taste of grape yakult. Waffles are prepared fresh upon order, crispy on the outside, soft and chewy inside. It was however too crispy and firm for my preference and I did not quite like the use of disposable plastic utensils 》$4 Single Scoop + $4 Plain Waffle

Tom’s Palette is known for its unique and creative gelato flavours that are usually rotating as they have since created too many flavours to have them all in the shop. Their ice cream is made with fresh and raw ingredients, handmade without the addition of stabilisers, premixes or artificial flavouring.

The flavours which are available during my visit include Granny’s Favourite, Chocolate Sorbet, Rum & Raisin, Almond Biscuit, Banana Chocolate, Banana Honey Roasted Nuts, Chocolate Stout, Oreo Cheesecake, Goma & Sesame Brittle. Honey Cinnamon, Lychee, Salted Caramel Cheesecake, Salted Egg Yolk, Yuzu, Milo Dinosaur, Milk & Chocolate Almonds, Nuts & Such, Parmesan Cheese & Cream Crackers, Hojicha, Root Beer Float, Strawberry, Nutella Swirl, Earl Grey and Savoury Crunch.

One thing I like about them is the choice of having two flavours (for the same price) in a cup regardless of cup size which makes me not get bored from eating only one flavour in one go. The flavours we chose were Hojicha and Honey Cinnamon, Rum & Raisin and Yuzu. Hojicha was fragrant and earthy but a little on the sweet side while rum & raisin comes with a good amount of alcohol where a lot of places do not have such strong flavours compared to them.

Hay gelato is a tiny brick-and-mortar shop along Bedok North serving creative gelato by the folks behind Brine. The shop is simple and beautifully decorated with flowers. There is also limited seating space both indoors and outdoors but that does not deter anyone from takeaways.

What makes them different from others is the different toppings added to every scoop. I ordered their earl grey lavender topped with rice crisps and roasted pistachio topped with bits of nutty pistachio. The earl grey lavender is light in flavour with a refreshing and nice floral fragrance while the pistachio is stronger in flavour, not too sweet with lots of nutty business going on in there. I reckon I got the right combinations where both flavours kind of balance one another.

Creamier needs no introduction and it remains one of my favourite to-go places for ice cream and waffles. Smooth ice cream with waffles that are crisp on the outside, fluffy on the inside and with a batter that isn’t too eggy or airy. The queue has always been long even when it was near their closing hours.

Summer Strawberries (Premium)
There's nothing like biting into a ripe, freshly-picked strawberry on a beautiful sunshine-filled day. The summer Strawberries ice cream is fruity and creamy. A happy treat for sunny days and love for all things pink. Lovingly made with sun-ripe strawberries and French cream.

Honey Lemon Yuzu Sorbet (Premium)
Concocted with loads of hand-squeezed lemon juice and honey to boost immunity and soothe sore throats.

I have been here so many times that I can continuously redeem a free lonely waffle. With every 10 stamps ($5 per stamp) collected on their loyalty card, you get one free lonely waffle. This was one of the reasons that makes me come back so frequently. It not definitely not my first free waffle and of course not going to be my last.

Here I have honeycomb and roasted pistachio (premium) ice cream on a waffle. These two flavours are among my usual favourites for their distinct and creamy flavours. The waffle with lonely usually costs $7.50 which I got for free and topped up $2.50 + $0.80 (Premium Flavour) for another scoop.

I'm in a relationship with food. Why can't we just declare our never ending love and vows towards some food item? I'm sure that would not result in divorces.
