@the.humblescoop is a little hole-in-the-wall scoop shop in the dungeons of Katong Shopping Centre.

They specialize in local nostalgic flavours such as pulut hitam (which is apparently really good) and in-kueh-dible (their take on cendol ice cream).

Having enjoyed their huat-lah ice cream (a strange yet delightful concoction of lime, pineapple and chilli) previously, I was kinda excited to try more of what they had to offer.

Their waffles were decent --- a little too bread like for my liking and I wasn't a fan of their earl grey milk tea ice cream. It kinda sucks because most scoop shops don't allow you try their flavours these days so you never know what you will get. That said, maybe I should checkout their sugarcane with lemon ice cream next time...

An ice cream parlour I have been meaning to try, The Humble Scoop at Katong Shopping Centre certainly didn’t disappoint. For something sweet, the “In-Kueh-Dible” ($3.90/ single scoop) is a yummy blend of salted coconut and gula melaka. Though the flavour of the coconut was mild, the caramel-like fragrance of the gula melaka was distinct and coupled well with their waffle ($4/ a la carte).
Next for something rich and creamy, the "Orh-Bee-Good" ($4.90/ single premium scoop) is my favourite of the two and understandably their most popular flavour. Inspired by Pulut Hitam, the traditional black glutinous rice and coconut milk dessert, the texture and taste of the scoop was so on point. It was sweet yet not overly so, slightly nutty, a little chewy, sticky with a lovely dose of coconut.

Hidden inside Katong shopping centre lies one of the most unique ice cream flavours. To those who loves pulut hitam, you have to try this

The Humble Scoop is a relatively new scoop shop in the basement of Katong Shopping Centre which serves flavours with a local twist.

The oldies loved their signature orh-bee-good (or pulut hitam) ice cream.

As for me, I liked that their gam-bah-teh (or earl grey milk tea) ice cream had a strong bold Earl Grey flavour and a nice rich creamy finish.

For my 2nd scoop, I decided to be a little more adventurous with their huat lah (pineapple, lime and chilli) ice cream. It has been described on their website as a throwback to the old days when roadside fruit stall sellers will provide a huge container of dark soy sauce with cut chilli padi for you to dip your cut pineapple in. The pineapple and lime was a little mild for my liking but there was an interesting and nice fiery kick at the end of each spoonful.

@the.humblescoop is really out of the way but I will try to be back for their waffles and other flavours.


This is a kopi gao in a cone literally! In fact they are made with Nanyang coffee beans.

Featuring Kopi C Siew Dai from @the.humblescoop. If you are in Katong area, you can find your scoop of happy scream inside Katong Shopping Center.

They have many more local inspired unique flavours which you cannot find easily elsewhere!
