Not just Merely an ice cream parlor

I like how they have indie magazine like Kinfolk and Frankie in their shop. This allows the customers to read while enjoying their ice cream. It sounds ideal to me but that's because I am a bookworm. But most of them would be too busy chit-chatting and catching up with their friends.

When I was there, I tried the classic chocolate and it was on point! The base of it was very rich and not too sweet but just enough to satisfy a sweet-tooth.

I would recommend trying the Coconut flavor because I heard some customers likening it to the famous Chatuchak market in Bangkok, Thailand. They use fresh Thai baby coconut to blend the juice and flesh to mix this refreshing treat. What's more, MERELY ice cream is sandwiched between 2 famous Thai eateries, so you know where their inspiration comes from!

Overall, I would definitely bring more of my friends to try out all the other exciting flavors such as Salted Butterscotch, Breakfast Cereal, Chocolate Stout, Gula Pandan, Horlicks Panda, Oreo Milk, Banana Walnut, etc.

Not the normal Ice Cream store!

I official say this is my favourite ice cream shop. I was loitering around after my lessons are Kaplan 3 years back and accidentally went into the shop. It is hard not to go in bec the shop is so unique. It fits the vibes around there (NAFA and Lasalle) and the flavours inside is very interesting. I dislike those world wide renowned ice cream shop because they are often very artificially flavoured and too sweet to my liking.

The tables of this shop is made of pallet. Yup, I didn't said wrongly. They are made of pallets joined together. They used to paste post it pad and create a ice cream picture but now they remove it and from outside it is like a piece of drawing when you look from the shop outside.

My favourite flavour is Salted Butterscotch and Oreo Milk. They are creamy and yummy. They have other strange flavour like Horlicks Panda, Gula Pandan, Earl Grey, Root Beer Float and so on. They rotate some flavours but my favourite flavour is always there unless sold out. I also tried their tea before while waiting for my husband. The taste is great. Simple yet smell so nice. I would definitely recommend to anyone who want to have a great tea and waste sometime.

Natural and Delicious Ice Cream

Merely Ice Cream ranks high up on the list of my favourite ice cream parlours. It is located at Sunshine Plaza, so you are likely to see many students from nearby Lasalle and Nafa.

Merely has a unique variety of ice cream flavours and lets customers choose between a cone, a wafer bowl and a cup. I recently visited and got to try their Grape Yakult flavour! It’s a new flavour I’ve never seen before and highly recommend! The light taste of Grape Yakult combined with ice cream is just perfect. Can’t understand why such flavours are not as popular! A few other flavours you have to try are Earl Grey, Matcha and Oreo Milk!

Other than ice cream, Merely also serves premium tea, which I think is great for clearing the palate after a delicious cone. Also, this place is really cosy. The wooden chairs and tables give the place a very organic, indie feel.

To sum it up, I really like this place and can’t wait to go back and try more of their amazing flavours!
