Ice Cream Gallery
At The Ice Cream Gallery (Singapore), ice cream is made in small batches fresh on premises to ensure a consistent homemade taste and quality. Geared towards the local palate, the ice cream produced have a reduced level of fat and sugar with no preservatives. They offer a wide range of both Asian and familiar flavors.
It's not that i am a fan of live-fast-die-young and refuse to get seats in the shop everytime, the fact that i can't get seats for even a small group of 3 (my parents and i) just proves the number of nods Ice Cream Gallery is getting from the foodies.
There are plenty of flavours to choose from and with the constant flow of crowd, picking two flavours everytime for my double scoop always feel like making a United Nation decision or doing a Ph.D research paper. I've done neither of the aforementioned, that's how intense the crowds are and the extensive the choices.
Some people might consider the 3.50 per scoop a little overpriced, but I think the price is definitely worth it. The ingredients are premium and the end result is memorable and tasteful. However, I would suggest you try a free sample before deciding on what to buy as some of the items might not suit everyone's palate. The only qualm I had is that the seating area was a little cramped, so you might want to check whether there are any seats available in the outlet before buying your ice cream.
I also tried their cheesy hotdog bread @ the valley point outlet and i must say it's really good too!! First time having hotdogs in an ice cream parlor! It's like a very homely place to chill out after work /school and just relax a little, listening to the nice music playing.. Well, I had a good experience there and i'm sure you would not regret coming here!
Other than the usual hagen daaz and Ben and Jerry's, you might find the Ice Cream Gallery off upper East coast road pretty much a dazzling delight. With its 100% homemade and fresh ice cream, their friendly staff will guide you along a delightful bunch of flavours to choose from, not to mention with a pretty huge helping too!
I find the Ice cream gallery up there on my top five ice cream parlour list, for the simple fact the plain simple has turned into the new unique. It has driven away from competition amongst the custom made Cold Stone or ice cream chefs, and has served up the original platter made from our own backyard.
I often patronize the one at river valley. They are very generous with their scoops - one scoop is equivalent to about 1.5-2 scoops at other outlets. I often go for their mint and durian icecream because the durain tastes authentic and the mint is really cooling in the throat. Its very unlike other mint flavours out there.
Tip: their single scoop w 2 flavours is 1 dollar more but it's slightly larger than single scoop so take that if 2 scoops' too many for you!
