Kooks Creamery

Singapore's ice cream scene is becoming de trop, with scads of geletarias having already effloresced ass-to-elbow everywhere here, this continuing undiminished even till date. So how does someone - anyone - who possess serious skin in the game of cones avoid ultimately ending up another unheeded minnow and keep customers keen as mustard, always making them circling back for more? Take it from Kuah Sue-Maine and Kuah Sue-Lynn then, the sister duo masterminding over half a decade old Kooks Creamery - their claim to fame being exactingly R&Ded flavours that imbibe voguish local quiddities, as well as maniacally oozy lava cookies/waffles.

Established since 2016, Kooks Creamery presently operates three stores in Orchard Road, Serangoon, Bedok (which we popped by pretty much on impulse to tame niggling dessert urges).

What knocked our socks off:

The Lava Waffles With Ice Cream proved quite the Dionysian indulgence: double-stacked golden griddled joy geysering reams of chocolate ganache, big splodge of glace au Ferrero Rocher persnicketily niched atop when tore into wholesale blazoned crispy hot, praline nutty and boreal sweet, these all unfolding athwart one another contemporaneously.

Lava Waffles + Single Scoop of Ferrero Rocher ($14.30)

Other items sampled but turned out to be non-events:

Single Scoop of Raspberry Lychee ($5.80)

Single Scoop of Brown Sugar Tau Huay ($5.80)

Salted Caramel

Naming your ice cream store after the one flavour which endears to you most thumpingly smacks of earnest but contrived balderdash, nevertheless it's Salted Caramel owner Bernice Ong's raison d'ĂȘtre (as well as prerogative) for doing so. Started in 2011, this Upper Thomson Road-based scoopaplooza has been dutifully helping to keep the mercury at bay.......

Denzy Gelato

Conceived by husband-wife duo Damien Yau and Wong Hao Zhen, Denzy opened in early 2019; vaunting a clean, kinfolk aesthetic conversant with industrial undertones, this iddly piddly little 25-seater gelataria at Bishan Street 11 sells gelato creations churned onsite, plus various coffees/teas.Mere months after hitting the ground running, it claimed pole position......

Originally an online bakery business that launched only last year, Butterspace aspires to bigger things seemingly hastily, having already opened its first physical outlet on 21 June. Beyond hawking kitschy cookies, brownies, blah blah blah, this neo-ascetic hole in the wall doubles as ice cream parlour - folks may thus also momentarily licka'way the relentless tropical heat......
