Their super premium ice cream are made in-store, fresh everyday. Their concept is creation where customers select flavours and Size, choose your Mix-Ins and then watch their creation come to life on the Chef's Rock. They have free Hersheys Chocolate sauce included with any mix-ins

Will Be Back For Kaya Lotee

It's almost ritualistic that I make a stop at Ice Cream Chefs everytime I'm in the East. The sound of having Kaya Lotee ice cream (pandan flavoured jam on soft, white bread) is just heavenly! Unfortunately, I get so overwhelmed by all their local flavours that I end up with a scoop of something else, and I haven't tried the elusive Kaya Lotee.

The last I checked their website, Ice Cream Chefs have two more outlets, one at Upper Thomson and the other at Mt Faber, but I have not visited either yet. My practice is to call ahead and check for the available flavours because they have a rotating menu. You can see the full menu on their website. I tend to look for flavours like Cha Yen (the same tea used for Thai Iced Tea), Dark Sesame and Milo Peng.

There's free parking behind Ice Cream Chefs so remember to buzz them to lift the barrier for you.

Cold Stone on a shoestring budget.

I once visited this quaint little store along East Coast Road and was blown away with what they had to offer - at the price they offered it. It was quite easily the best ice cream I had at the best price - never had I been so happy to part with my money for ice-cream.

Most of us should be familiar with Cold Stone Creamery where we can either choose from their pre-mixed ice-cream or mix our own. Ice Cream Chefs adopts a very similar approach where you can select a base flavour and add toppings. They have many similar toppings like the peanut butter snack, of which the name eludes my mind at present, and the other common mixes like M&Ms, candy, and the like.

Like I said, the best part of the ice-cream here is affordability. The price of a cup here is probably around 2/3 the price of the same cup of ice-cream at Cold Stone, and to no wonder: it probably incurs lower rent cost since it's not-so-conveniently located.

I wouldn't recommend coming here during 'peak' hours though as the place seems like it would be very uncomfortable if it were crowded indeed. It's small, though I wouldn't say cramped - the presence of many people could possibly change that.

Ice Cream Chefs is quite simply a gem in the East and I would definitely return someday to get some of that good and cheap ice-cream.

Unique and lovely.

Ice Cream Chefs is a wonderful place for ice cream especially if you're looking for more unique tastes and flavours. I've tried a couple of different flavours but my favourite is probably the White Chocolate which was absolutely amazing. The Kaya Lotte flavour was also really nice and I think its super unique because where else can you find Kaya ice cream.

I must say though, the fact that they change the flavours each time can kind of be a turn off though because I only managed to get the White Chocolate flavour once and every other time I've been, they didn't have it available.

I visit the East Coast outlet and it is quite small which is nice and cosy when there aren't many people there but can be quite annoying when there's a crowd.

unique ice cream flavours!

I usually visit the Ice Cream Chef branch at East Coast as it's quite close to where I stay. Although the shop is rather small, that in conjunction with the deco gives it quite a warm, homely feel. I really anticipate the various flavours on offer every time I visit, as they are very creative, and can hardly be found elsewhere! Over the years, I keep going back to their assorted milk teas, beer, and chocolate-based flavours.

I also like the concept of being able to choose mix-ins. It feels like an 'upgrade' from conventional toppings, haha! Although another popular ice cream branch, Marble Slab Creamery operates with a similar idea, in my opinion it's more well done in ICC - the mixed ice cream is less melted, as the staff are very efficient in mixing the toppings in.

Do visit with a friend or two to try the creative flavours!

Awesome creative flavours

Living in the vicinity, I frequent this little ice cream parlour often and I'm glad that it never disappoints. What's great about ICC is that they have a large variety of very creative flavours which will satisfy all taste buds. Whatever you are in the mood for, be it something classic, sweet, fruity, or even craving a dessert like Creme Brulee, there will definitely be a flavour for you!

My favourite would be Almond Jelly. Unique I know, I got hooked on the first try, although they only have that occasionally. The almond jelly taste is really distinct and it does feel like I'm eating almond jelly - only creamier and more indulgent! Other great flavours include Bandung, Milk tea and Milo Peng, which incorporate Singapore's local hawker drinks into icecream, which I think is a tremendously innovative idea.

I appreciate how generous they are with their servings and mix ins, always filling the cup as much as it can contain and being very consistent in their serving sizes. I also like how the place is small so it is very cosy, a great place to chat with friends especially in the afternoons when they are not crowded! The only downside is that on weekends they are pretty crowded at night so don't expect to be able to get a seat as seats are really limited.

ICC is surely a place I would go over and over again just to try all their intriguing flavours!

Watermelon ice cream!

With so many new ice-cream parlours popping out in every corner of Singapore, it actually doesn't make Ice-cream Chefs any special. It was a mere by-chance I decided to drop by for a cold treat when the nearby cheesecake cafe was close. Like many other ice cream places, the shop is also run by bubbly youngsters who are only too enthusiastic to recommend you the flavours. All the better!

I tried the watermelon ice cream with gummy bears of my choice mixed in and got hooked on from then. That is the real treat! It is like eating frozen watermelon balls by the scoop. So refreshing! It's ain't too sweet and has just the perfect creamy texture. But they do not have that everyday. They have some other local-favourite beverage flavours like 'Teh' and 'milo peng' which are also very delectable. You can choose to have some little toppings added in for an added crunch or bite.

I usually get the ice cream and stroll back to the car as the place is quite small and seats are really limited. The ice cream tastes better on a stroll!

Refreshing

I was over at my friend's house somewhere in Thomson road, and we had just finished our project work. It was in the middle of the afternoon, and the shine shone brightly. The weather was hot and sultry, and all we wanted was ice cream.

Lucky for us, Ice Cream Chefs was right down the road. There were quite a few customers at that time, most of them with younger kids who were happily eating their ice creams. Initially, we couldn't find any seats and had to wait awhile before we got some.

I took awhile to decide what flavour of ice cream to get, before deciding to get the rose syrup flavored one because I love Bandung and I was hoping that it would taste similar to that. It didn't taste quite similar, very much more milky than I would have liked, but it was still good. The ice cold ice cream on a sweltering hot day just hit the spot for me that day.

small space but great ice cream!

I have tried the Ice cream chefs for a few times but every time I try, it never fails to brighten up my days.

I wasn't an adventurous person, so every time I would simply order those chocolate assorted flavors. I love all the ice cream that I have tried there so far. Despite a hater for really sweet stuff, I love ice cream chefs’ ice cream for being be not-too-sweet. Their waffles taste great too, and overall they are picture-perfect.

One disappointing fact would be the fact that the place is really cramp and small (I went to the east coast branch). I would really like to sit inside there for once but usually when I go, only the outside seats are available. Would definitely try more of their other flavors next time!

Uniquely Singapore

I LOVE ice-cream chefs. It is uniquely Singapore as there are uncommon ice-cream flavours such as Chempedak!

What I love most is the interior design of Ice Cream Chefs. The walls are vibrantly decorated with pictures and well-wishes from customers who have enjoyed the service there. I also had the opportunity to watch the ice-cream chefs prepare my ice cream. I was really amazed.

What I don't like, however, are the awkward locations of the outlets. The outlets are relatively difficult to find especially the ones located around HDB blocks. I would recommend Ice Cream Chefs to those who are looking for a new and unique ice cream experience. However, I find that there are many other ice-cream eateries which offer creamier ice-creams worth the price

LOVE IT

It’s a ‘tradition’ for me and my friends to visit Ice Cream Chefs after our last paper during exam seasons for I used to study in a school just a few bus stops away from the area.

Even though personally, I'm not too much of a fan of ice cream, what really appealed to me was the huge variety of flavours and mix-ins, and of course, it was fun to see the Chefs mashing and mixing the ice cream around. Furthermore, the atmosphere of the place is comfortable and light-hearted, with simplistic interior. It’s a great place to just sit around, have some of the really delicious ice cream mixes and just chatting with friends.

Moreover, the prices there are really reasonable, so much that even secondary school students like we were could afford it.
