  • Ice Cream Uncle: A Forgotten Hero
    Ice-cream.

    This simple treat has come a long way from satisfying the simple sweet-tooth to becoming a culinary game-changer. What was once a mere treat to end your meal has become a staple for many cafes around Singapore.

    It is hard to compete against many ice-cream parlour giants in our sunny little island, but one dying trade continues to fight against the grain. Behold, the Ice Cream Uncle.

    Ah yes, remember those? When the sun was beating down heavily upon you, the Ice Cream Uncle was the man after your own heart (or...stomach...). That iconic ring of the bell was the signal every primary school kid longed to hear, and when you did, it was almost euphoric.

    There's a variety of flavours for you to pick, from good old plain vanilla to the quintessentially Singaporean durian. You could have it served in a cup, wrapped between a fluffy slice of bread or in between two thin, crisp wafers. The uncle (or aunty) would take a brick of ice-cream out of a mini refrigerator and proceed to carefully cut a thick slice from said 'brick', and then proceed to serve it to you the way you requested.

    The best part? It's cheap, and it's good. Prices usually range from $1 to $1.50. The ice cream itself isn't Häagen-Dazs, but there's still enough sweetness and flavour to satisfy your craving.

    Sadly though, there aren't as many of these Ice Cream Uncles around anymore. Most of us are no longer happy to just eat, we want to dine (even if it's just ice-cream). However, never underestimate the pleasure of an old fashioned ice-cream sandwich, especially when it tastes of pure nostalgia.

  • Affordable Western Food
    If you're looking to add a restaurant that serves cheap and good food onto your list of go-to dining places, then Saizeriya is the place for you. It offers good quality food at really affordable prices, making it a hit among students and working class adults alike.

    At Saizeriya, you get what you pay for. Yes, this isn't fine dining. However, for anything between as low as $3.90 to about $13.00, you can get a range of foods from salads to pizzas, pastas and baked rice. Portions are relatively filling, and they taste pretty good especially considering the price. And for about $2.50, you can get free flow drinks as well. They also have a range of desserts, from vanilla ice cream for as low as $1.90 to tiramisu and panna cotta for no more than $5.00.

    If you're looking for good food at great prices, and would like something different from your usual hawker fare, then definitely give Saizeriya a try.
