I love ice cream. Who doesn’t? And with the hot Singapore climate, you can have ice cream almost everyday. The Straits Times did a story of some of the best ice creams in Singapore, and my friends and I couldn’t help but be the typical Singaporean, to visit one of them – CREAMIER in Toa Payoh.
CREAMIER’s location is not easy to find. But once I found it, I was immediately drawn to its chic and cozy decor and ambience, and curiously tickled at how it stood out among the older and “basic” looking HDB neighborhood shops.
CREAMIER has a good selection of 18 flavours. But my main objective was to taste the flavor featured in the newspaper – Sea Salt Gula Melaka. Unfortunately, it was sold out. How disappointing. Then again, I should have expected it to sell out since it was featured and I was there at almost closing time (9pm). But the young lady across the counter was nice enough to offer me a spoonful of the flavor, from scraps of leftovers sticking to the sides of the empty stainless steel container. I must say this is customer service at its best, especially in Singapore.
Anyhow, it tasted okay but I didn’t think I could make a judgment of the flavor merely by a small spoonful. So I guess I might need to come back another time just to try this special flavor.
We ended up with a double scoop of Rum & Raisins and Roasted Pistachio plus a fresh waffle with The Richest Dark Chocolate Ferrero and Black Forest ice cream. Firstly, the texture of the ice cream is great. It was creamy yet not over-powering, with a tingling and refreshing feeling in the mouth, which keeps you going at it. The taste of the Pistachio was very good! I’m not a big fan of Pistachio ice cream but this will definitely be on my next order. If you are into chocolate and nuts, the Ferrero is a must have. The Rum & Raisin and Black Forest were mediocre. Both lacked that “wah” factor. I liked the waffle. It was crispy on the outside and soft in the inside. It was not too heavy but substantial enough if you are thinking of making it a sweet and small meal.
The lady owner approached us for feedback and said she listens to customer’s feedback to improve her ice cream formula. Another tick for customer service.
