Back again! Tried their Deepavali special, strawberry lassi, and Orh Haw (hawthorn) and Oolong. I quite liked their strawberry lassi and I think they should make it a permanent flavour on rotation! It’s tart and yogurty, but not overly creamy. The frozen strawberry chunks inside also make it taste extra great. Got the hawthorn flavour again since my brothers didn’t try it before and I love it because there’s nothing like it anywhere else. It’s a refreshing sorbet! Lastly, got their oolong, which has a very rich, smokey tea flavour and is very creamy. It’s similar in consistency to their earl grey, although I find the earl grey to be more fragrant. My brother likes the oolong more though.

Overall I love this place. It’s a small space but the servers are so nice and patient when you sample the flavours. Another flavour I liked while sampling is the Old School Chocolate, which unlike its name, doesn’t taste like chocolate coins that you’d get during Chinese New Year or mama shop chocolate wafers. It tastes super rich and dark, and almost has a sticky texture. Would go for it if you like really thick chocolate.

This was some time back, so I can’t rmb the exact names of the flavours but the top one was a pineapple lime, and the bottom one was gula melaka (iirc). The pineapple lime was very refreshing, and had a good balance between being tart and sweet, we liked it a lot! The gula was good too. Texture wise not the most creamy but it was decent. The owner was very friendly too! I’ll be back to support, I like how they offer locally inspired flavours that actually taste good :)

Finally visited The Humble Scoop, which I’ve been wanting to try because they have quite a few interesting local flavours. It’s a small shop in Katong Shopping Centre and they have various flavours on rotation. Sampled the flavours and decided to get the flavours: orh-be-good (pulut hitam), gam-ba-teh (earl grey milk tea) and orh haw~ (hawthorn berry). Also quite liked their mango sorbet, which tasted like a good mango pudding, and their old school chocolate, which was a really rich, dark chocolate that I’d normally go for but wasn’t in the mood haha.
Of the three flavours, my favourite was the hawthorn one because it tastes completely like hawflakes and is really refreshing as a sorbet. It’s not too sweet or creamy, so I really liked it! The other favours were quite good too. The pulut hitam ice cream doesn’t taste overly of coconut milk and the glutinous rice isn’t hard like it can be in some ice creams. It really tastes like the dessert! The earl grey one has a creamier texture, but it still has a strong tea fragrance and there are tea leaves inside. Would prefer it to be a bit less creamy, but it’s still quite nice.
Overall quite a good try! A pity that the flavours of muah chee or cereal milk weren’t available when I went bc they sound amazing!!! They update their flavours daily on their instagram so you can check it out before you go down. Will go again next time when those flavours are available!

This 10-month old stall has some pretty interesting ice cream flavors such as In-Kueh-dible (salted coconut & gula melaka), Orh-Bee-Good (pulut hitam), guava sour plum, and sugarcane. Tried the In-Kueh-dible and Orh-Bee-Good and I liked both .. creamy and not too sweet.

It’s funny that it took an American dude to introduce me to an ice-cream shop opened by three young Singaporeans that happens to specialise in locally-inspired flavours.
Nine-months-old @the.humblescoop is situated in the basement of Katong Shopping Centre, very close to the food court with the famous chicken rice stall. They don’t have that many seats in there but based on what I saw, most customers do take-away anyway.
Before making my final pick, I could not resist sampling a few of the other flavours because the descriptions were too tempting and the names, cute enough to elicit chuckles.
Overall, I found their ice-cream good - it’s thick, smooth, rich and creamy, and the flavours did not lack in robustness.
I enjoyed my eventual choice - a single scoop of “In-Kueh-Dible” (salted coconut and #gulamelaka) but was more than happy to steal some of @timtimtokyo’s “Black Sesame Paste” too because that one really rocks!
Another flavour that impressed me a lot which I feel is worth getting is the “Sugar Cane with Lemon”. It tastes just like the real thing because well, it’s made from the actual drink.


Decided to support this humble little outfit nestled in a corner of Katong Shopping Centre - they have really unique local inspired flavours and very tasty too! We got sugar cane with lemon + coconut and gula melaka- both retained the original tastes of its ingredients and were very refreshing indeed 😋 Super worth! Will be back to try their pulut hitam and earl grey flavours next time!
