It was our second visit here and am super super glad we tried out the cone this time 🍦 We usually opt for cups over cones because it’s quite a hassle but to our surprise it was not a messy experience at all - the cone was really crispy and it comes off cleanly when you bite it off! In fact it remained crispy even when the ice cream started to melt - most cones would turn slightly soggy by then but this was really robust and we could still crunch on it all the way to the last bite 😋 It had really unique buttery undertones that blended so well with their Brown Butter Sage. Don’t think we’ve enjoyed an ice cream cone this much in our lives 😂

In other news, we managed to sample more flavours at the parlour this time so if you’re looking for a recommendation, they have two awesome kinds of Pistachio (the Classic and the Roasted) 🥜 and a surprising harmony of sweet and sour gelato with their Rhubarb Buttermilk, whereas the Brown Butter Sage was a delightful brown sugar-like dessert. The Lavender wasn’t spectacular, but it was very pleasant to taste and we think it would go really well with the cone 🤤

New (good) gelato shop, yay!
Hazelnut comes with prominent hazelnut taste which makes it very good. idk if it was intentonal but, when it melts, it turned into some fudgy nutella-tasting fudge instead of a typical melted gelato which was still (uniquely) good, but just a lil surprising haha. If the sweetness was toned down just a little more, it would be perfect but actually it’s already very good.
Burnt White Chocolate was pretty impressive. Turned out to be not as sweet as I thought which was an excellent start, and there were these mini crunches that added very nice textures. Tasted like white chocolate with subtle caramel hints.
The cone was very nice! Crispy, idk lah just soo yum. Not very ‘spiced’ although some hints were there, but I think it’s a perfect cone to go along with gelatos.

I’ll be brutally honest: I was a little turned off by the whole copycat act, but I have to admit being curious about a couple of their spice-infused flavours so alright give it a shot I did. Gotta say I really really liked their pepper-specked cones, shockingly even more than I did BOP’s thyme-scented ones 🤔 you can really taste the pepper here, but in a very nuanced, mellow, aromatic way. It was very fragrant! We tasted a couple of their flavours and settled with the Coconut Pandan and Sea Salt Gula Jawa. The former’s a light tasting sorbet that’s really refreshing, though I’d have liked a stronger hit of pandan. The latter was my fave of all the flavours I tasted. It’s a less aggressive take on the classic salted caramel. The salt hits you first, pretty strongly I have to say but not overwhelming at all, with a very nutty kind of sweetness kicking in at the end. It’s very well-balanced and they definitely exercise enough restraint with the sugar, so it was really easy to finish a scoop on my own. In fact I’d do 2 😉

Fitting of their more botany-themed flavours, the Ispahan and Mango Coconut ($8/ double) I chose were a refreshing change from the conventional selection. Presented with a stronger hint of lychee as compared to the floral-y rose aroma, the Ispahan was smooth and not cloying at all. You can also see pieces of raspberries churned into the gelato. Similarly, the Mango Coconut was a lovely marriage of the two key ingredients, yet holding a slightly more dominant sweetness from the mango which I didn’t mind one bit. The ending notes of the tropical number were subtle but you can definitely taste the distinct nutty-earthiness of coconut.

Loving the rustic vibes from the brick wall details and wood furnitures featured in the white spacious boutique, Monarchs & Milkweed Gelato may be my new favourite spot for ice cream in Bugis; taking note that the seating are pretty limited.

Having the Burnt White Chocolate ($4.90/ single) with their cone ($1), the sweetness was simply perfect with its caramel-esque quality in the initial spoonfuls. Almost nutty-tasting, the scoop then ends off with a creamy as well as milky finish, a milder version of the White Chocolate flavour we are familiar with. And another element worth mentioning was their house-made cone. With a medley of spices and herbs infused in the batter, the waffle cone’s taste was kept light intentionally so that one cannot simply pinpoint the exact mix used; told to me by one of the owners when I asked a staff what was in it.

Popped by the newly opened Monarchs & Milkweed Gelato for a quick ice cream fix after dinner and I’m stoked to find I now have a good ice cream spot near me!

The Ispahan is light and tastes mildly of rose, but what I really loved was the hazelnut flavour. Thick, intense and it has a perfect gooey, creamy texture, almost like a fudge! Makes me want to try all their other nutty flavours (got my eyes on pistachio next!).
