Best Ice Cream Singapore

Living in Singapore’s out of cone-trol weather always calls for ice cream. Back then, the ice cream stand uncles could be found everywhere – always there to help you with the heat. Now, the uncles are rarely spotted and ice cream parlours and cafes have taken over their places instead. At these parlours, wild and wacky flavours are crafted and presented in the most aesthetic-pleasing ways possible.

So, buckle up and prepare to get your fingers sticky at these 7 ice cream establishments in Singapore! After all, it’s never too cold for ice cream.

Many of us had mourned the loss of 7-Eleven’s Mr Softee’s chendol ice cream but Overrun heard our cries and swooped in to save the day.

It could be the aromatic gula Melaka infused swirls or the perfect syrup, or even the chewy pandan jelly and coconut flakes that keep winning the hearts of many. Due to its high popularity, the chendol flavour is now a regular on the menu with a rotating flavour weekly. Make sure to check their Facebook for the flavour of the week for updates!
