Island Creamery #1
#01-03 Serene Centre
After the quick lunch, Christina and I walked over to this ice cream parlor for some homemade ice cream. All the ice cream here is supposedly healthier as they are made with no preservatives or artificial colourings.
I had the Chocolate Mudpie ($4.80 nett) which has the usual combination of chocolate, cookies and cream, and coffee ice cream with chunks of oreo cookies. I also opted for a scoop of Black Forest ice cream ($2 nett if you add it onto the same place, $2.50 nett for a single scoop in a cup).
The Black Forest ice cream really knocked my socks off. This frozen version of the famous German cake is studded with a liberal amount of rum and brandy-soaked cherries. The rum and brandy add depth to the rich, bittersweet chocolate ice cream, and the booze-soaked cherry a little sweetness and tartness.
Christina opted for a Reverso Shakes ($6.50 nett) which tasted very rich and chocolatey—exactly the way she likes it.
During the entire time we were there (which was more than 3 hours), the flow of customers was very consistent. Besides students from the neighbouring schools, working adults and mothers with children also frequent the shop. It’s not difficult to see why. There are interesting local flavours like Pulut Hitam and The Tarik.
The atmosphere is very laid back and casual. Customers can even print their photos and paste them on the walls.
The prices are also cheaper than that elsewhere ($2.50 for single scoop, $4 for double) and the scoop is really generous. Note: Only cash and Visa are accepted. There is no ATM machine in Serene Centre.
