Density is a newly opened frozen custard parlour in the vein of the original Coney Island frozen custard. Students near Dhoby Ghaut will be happy to know that it’s on Short Street, a stone’s throw away from many of their schools.
The cafe is pretty bare bones – there’s nothing extraordinary here, leaving the focus more on its product. It borrows industrial chic sensibilities so you can expect red brick walls and concrete floors. The cafe is still really cosy though, and will serve well as a hangout spot. Besides frozen custard, you can also treat yourself to sundaes, milkshakes, and specialty coffee from the local coffee roaster Two Degrees North Coffee. You might have heard of Two Degrees North Coffee – they also provide coffee for Fatcat Ice Cream Bar and Department Of Caffeine on Duxton Hill.
The frozen custard ($4 – Single | $7- Double | $9.50 – Triple)
You’re probably wondering what frozen custard actually is. In simple terms, it’s a type of ice cream with an egg base. That means it’s healthier because it’s made with natural ingredients, with richer flavour and texture. We tried two of their flavours, Rocher and Popcorn. They were both rich in flavour and had an ultra smooth texture. You can choose your toppings ($1 each) for the custard as well so you can create your very own concoction of silky smooth frozen custard.
An all-American treat at your doorstep
There are plenty of ice cream places popping up around in Singapore, but Density successfully sets itself apart with their special use of ingredients and the unique taste and texture that come with it.
I can’t write a definitive review since I’ve only tried two flavours, but I’ll say that what I had was better than what you would get in regular chain ice cream stores. The quality of the ice cream here is better and the flavours and texture come through. It’s not the best ice cream, but you’ll be in safe hands here!
Address: 4 Short Street
