Tender and Juicy 🍗 done right! Try it out with the smoked maple syrup it goes well together
Overall Rating over 5: 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥
Finally made plans to drop by BOP for more of their cold treats! I got the Hazelnut this time, which was nothing short of stunning. 😍 Even though the flavour was robust and rich in hazelnut (think a stronger flavour of Kinder Bueno's cream), it was still perfectly restrained, which kept it from being overpowering. It couples really nicely with the savoury thyme cone too. I feel they were subtly complementary of each other. 😋 (8/10)
Recommending the gelato (S$4.70) here as it leaned towards the less-sweet side. The lychee flavored plus its fragrance with a tinge of pinkish raspberry is my cup of tea. Together with the Thyme Waffle Cone (additional S$1), it really enhanced the gelato overall!
This takeaway-only ice cream boutique dishes out botanical-focused flavours - think white chrysanthemum, strawberry basil. While most of the flavours taste exactly as they are named, we thought the spiced pear was the most interesting of them all. It was also light and not too sweet, although $5.70 is a tad too expensive for a return visit anytime soon!
While my friend was excitedly raving over the White Chrysanthemum and Spiced Pear flavor, i took a mouthful and went, "Orh 'ju hua' ice cream lor".
But the freshly made Thyme Cone left an impression with its crispy crust and subtle thyme fragrance.
Revamping the classic Vanilla! Adding on generous bits of figs definitely uplifted the flavors but not losing the nostalgic familiar taste 💕 I recommend going for the thyme come rather than the cups as their so crispy & fragrant!
Pretty amazing waffle cone that's freshly made on the spot with thyme herbs. The mint cacao has nice cacao bits in it. Plus the pistachio is from Italy, looks more yellow than green. Super yummy!
This place has been picking up traction on Burpple pretty fast in the last couple of weeks, so I decided to drop by and check it out.
Stunning minimal decor, extremely inviting savoury smell (characteristic of Italian herbs), which I thought was rather unusual for an ice-cream boutique. It turns out it was the aroma wafting from the batch of thyme-herbed waffle cone they were whipping up.
I really liked that they were innovative with their flavours such as Strawberry Basil, White Chrysanthemum, Spiced Pear, Pandan. You won't find any chocolate here though - the Hazelnut flavour comes closest to it.
Dulcet and mellow are the words to describe their ice-cream. The thyme cone pairs nicely with it too, packing a more pronounced savoury taste. Makes it refreshing for a hot day, although it's a shame that they only start opening their doors at 4:30pm on weekdays. (and 12pm on weekends)
Nonetheless, Birds of Paradise is a pretty promising place to look out for in the coming weeks and months! 👍🏼 (8/10)
Featuring the chrysanthemum cacao flavour which is so light that it tastes like a guilt-free treat. This is how ice-cream should be made.
All-time favourite fruity lychee raspberry & "flowers-in-my-mouth" White Chrysanthemum. Will do anything for this right now with this weather ☄️
I loved to surprise myself so I got the Lemongrass Ginger in their signature Thyme Cone without sampling the flavour beforehand. I would say that the lemongrass ginger might not be a flavour for everyone, but it fit my tastebud perfectly, despite the food-coma after dinner. Being the more dominant flavour, the lemongrass was rather citrusy while the ginger enhanced the earthy zest in the gelato. And that thyme cone was really creative, looking forward to more innovations from them! :)
Not overly sweet and very refreshing, smooth, creamy. The thyme cone is quite special and brings a refreshing touch to the ice-cream. This is how ice cream should be made!
$4.70 Mango Sorbet
Rich, creamy and smooth. Taste wise it needs a little more acid. Its a little too expensive for my liking. Could be a dollar cheaper and itll be the perfect price
Spending our Christmas weekend with sweet treats from our favorite gelato boutique (3rd on Burpple's Hot 100 Cafes & Restaurants 2016!!) — Raspberry Lychee, White Chrysanthemum with Raw Cacao Bits, Spiced Pear and Strawberry Basil with lychee being the clear favorite of the night 😋
Located some distance away (walkable distance) from Parkway Parade, Birds of Paradise offers ice cream that combines your oh-so usual flavours like strawberry with floral elements! There's White Chrysanthemum, and others flavours mixed with figs.
I had the Pandan flavour and it was not as outstanding as the other floral flavours. Do check them out!
Price: Single scoop costs $4.70
