Milkcow is a soft-serve ice cream parlour from South Korea. Their signature soft serve is made with 100% organic milk sourced from Italian dairy farms, and toppings include honeycomb, jelly beans, Affogato and macarons. Their first oulet in Singapore opened 30 January 2015.
As someone not a fan of overly sweet things, Milky Way would be at the top of my favourites list. Simple, plain and straightforward vanilla ice cream. Although it tastes unlike any other soft-serve you’ll find, $6 is rather steep for a tiny cup of ice-cream and I’d much rather get that satisfying $1 ice-cream from the uncle down the street.
Being a sweet tooth, I picked up the Milky Cube ($5.90) mainly for its chunk of honeycomb (which seemed huge in menu pictures). The soft serve was smooth and creamy, and its milky taste definitely lived up to the store’s promise. But still, it was really nothing special, and other soft serve stores are likely to have the same offering. The honeycomb also seemed frozen and rubbery, nothing like the sweet, nectar goodness I was expecting.
Maybe the other flavours have much more to say for themselves, but I doubt I’ll be back for a repeat visit. Unless you’re still head first in the soft serve craze, this one is worth a miss.
I tried their Coco Magic ($5.90) because I was enticed by their coconut topping. For $5.90 a serving, the cup seemed a little small, much like the ice cream cone from Mcdonalds. The soft serve however, was delectable. I enjoyed every bit of it’s milky taste and creamy texture. It was a tad treacly to me though.
Overall, it was a satisfying and refreshing experience but I wouldn’t pay that much for such a small serving of soft serve.
I tried their Organic Natural Honey Comb ($5.90), which was a recommended item. The portion was quite small, and in terms of appearances I’ve definitely seen better. The soft-serve was actually remarkably good, and I really enjoyed the milky taste and smooth texture. The honeycomb though was off-putting, and was so overwhelmingly sweet that it ruined the ice cream entirely for me. Having the soft-serve in isolation is good enough for me, but for the prices they charge I don’t think I’ll be patronising Milkcow again.
