A particular ice- cream parlour hidden within a housing estate in Toa Payoh has been drawing ice- cream fans all over the country- Creamier. Despite its inaccessibility, many of my friends have been driving to the ‘hidden gem’ for their respective favourite ice- cream flavours and waffles. With some common ice- cream flavours done especially well and some unique ones offered too, Creamier has grown to become one of the favourite ice- cream parlours in Singapore.
The shop space is quite cramped and small, considering the high human traffic flow experienced during a few of my visits. I would consider Creamier to be a venue solely for one to enjoy his or her ice- cream and coffee for probably half an hour or so, after which the spot should be given up to the customers standing around, hoping to find a seat. Visit Creamier during the more peculiar hours and should you be lucky, the parlour can actually be a rather cosy place to have a chit chat with a couple of friends.
Roasted Pistachio Ice- Cream with Waffles
Most possibly my favourite ice- cream for the year, the Roasted Pistachio Ice- Cream was well- balanced texturally and flavour- wise. Packed with a nutty punch, this is a sure- hit for ice- cream fans who are fond of rich nutty flavours. A must- try I would say, especially when accompanied by their widely- acclaimed waffles; fragrant with the consistency of fresh batter and just slightly crisp for the bite.
Black Sesame Ice Cream
I was rather bowled over by the surprisingly satisfying medley of sweet and salty notes from Creamier’s Black Sesame Ice Cream. While the flavour was of an acquired taste, the pungency became a little heavy on the palate towards the end. The parlour’s rendition was certainly better than the rest I have had elsewhere.
Plain Ole Chocolate and Cookies & Cream Ice Cream with Waffles
Created with premium dark couverture chocolate, the Plain Ole Chocolate Ice- Cream would certainly be able to win the hearts of chocolate lovers out there, the subtle taste of bitterness was very well counter-pointed with the sweet notes, a match of flavours that easily pleased the tastebuds. The Cookies & Cream Ice Cream boasted creamy vanilla chopped Oreo cookie bits- not too rich, not too light, it was nice.
Ice- cream is sold at $3.00 per scoop and at a price of $5.00 for a double scope. Premium flavours are charged at an additional $0.80 per scoop. Waffles are priced at $5.00 while it is sold at $7.50 when paired with a scoop of ice- cream, extra scoops are sold at $2.50.
Gratifying home- made ice- cream from the use of top- notch ingredients and the wonderfully baked waffles are clearly the reason why many have been flocking to Creamier over the past year. A visit to Creamier is a must, especially if you are an ice- cream fan and that is if you are prepared to face the overwhelming crowd during the peak hours.
