Originally going around neighbourhoods in his motorcar to sell ice cream, the ice cream uncle has evolved today to setting up shop at strategic stationary positions around Singapore. Prices have still remained low at $1 although some uncles have raised their prices to $1.50. The Ice cream is from magnolia and can be eaten with rainbow-colored bread or in a wafer or cup.
Some popular central spots where you can find ice cream uncle:
- Outside Esplanade along the river near the bridge to Merlion Park.
- Clarke Quay - Along the main bridge to Jumbo in the centre of the drinking area
- Clarke Quay 2 - On the bridge outside Asian Civilization Musuem
- Orchard Road - This varies a lot but usually around Takashimaya
