[CLOSED] Butterknife Folk (River Valley)

* This place has closed :( Please try somewhere else. * We are Butterknife Folk. Our job is to make people happy. Whether it’s coming up with new flavors, sourcing for quality ingredients, or putting together a Spotify playlist, every little detail matters. We throw ourselves into it because we’re passionate about everything we do. We handcraft our gelato and sorbets in small batches. When a tub runs out, you never know what flavor comes next. We offer a diverse range of flavors, from run-of-the-mill classics to extreme and edgy creations. The only thing you can be sure of is the same amazing quality in every scoop. From baking our own cookies and brownies, to the zesting of citrus peels, or to the toasty scents of beurre noisette bubbling on our stove, absolutely everything is done lovingly in-house by our team. We believe in using only fresh ingredients, and making everything from scratch. For example, our sorbets taste just like their namesake fruit because… well, they were made from the actual fruit. It takes a lot of passion (and sweat) to do things the traditional way, but at the end of the day, we get our kicks from the smiles on our customers’ faces when they take that first mouthful of gelato. Since we opened, we have had only one goal in mind: to set the benchmark for artisanal gelato in Singapore. To do that, we guarantee you that we’ve poured our heart and soul into every scoop we serve. We want our customers to enjoy nothing but the best.

Butterknife Folk has impressed me on every visit; their gelato is always rich and creamy, and their flavour selection always enthralling. It's curious that they fly under the general public's radar.
The sweet and savoury miso is reminiscent of salted caramel, albeit with a whisper of miso's distinctively fragrant saltiness. The black sesame crisps also added a layer of texture, almost chocolate chip like, and deftly elevated the already intoxicating aromatic levels — one of the best non-traditional ice cream flavours I've had.

Made it down to @funansg after all the hype & I must say, the changes are so major, I almost forgot what the old Funan looked like!

Apart was all the high tech & neon signages, Funan now has tons of food choices from ramen spaces like @afurisg to dessert stores like @butterknifefolk!

For all you gelato fans, this is another great choice for you! Get your hands on favourites such as their Fudgy Chocolate or unique ones like Pu Er. Get a scoop for $5, or double scoop for $9 (ahem, also more worth it). I heard their flavours change daily, so you’d always be in for a treat!

While there are quite the assortment of quirky and bold flavours on rotation at Butterknife Folk, a firm favourite of mine at any ice cream parlour is the classic Pistacchio gelato. Luckily their rendition came smooth, rich and completely worth the calories. And the scoop sitting atop is their Ondeh Ondeh, which captured the essence of thedessert. It was lusciously creamy with a strong dose of coconut, pandan and streaks of gula melaka as well as grated coconut for that extra bit of texture.

NEW vegan TEA flavours - Coco matcha & Houjicha, made in-house in collaboration with @matchayasg 🍵! Differing from most houjicha gelato, the one here is made without milk, which resembled more of a sorbet, light and refreshing. Texture is smooth albeit slightly icy, with the characteristic roasted flavour and fragrance still bearing distinctive notes, though I would have personally prefer it to be more intense. As it’s made without dairy/milk, you can expect yourself to be having a semi-solid version of a clear Houji tea, one that’s lighter to the palate and less thick and creamy as compared to a milk-based one. On the other hand, the coco matcha is made using coconut milk as its base which eventually (and expectedly) overwhelmed its earthy, umami counterpart, with only subtle notes of the matcha being evident here. My favorite flavour among the 3 would be the Fudgy brownie (hidden below the scoop of Coco Matcha in the cup) that’s made with a Dark Chocolate base embedded with fudgy brownie chunks which were fudgy, gooey and sufficiently moist, slightly sticky as well that adds a dimension of texture to the smooth, creamy bittersweet dark chocolate gelato. A pity it’s not available anymore now but do check out @butterknifefolk ig story for their daily update of flavours! 🍨 . Who knows there might be new (or better) surprises that awaits?! 😉

I had this at Keeper’s Playground and it’s Butterknife Folk’s special flavour for national day! This tastes like chicken rice, chilli and cilantro, plus it has rice bits in it. The flavour can be a bit strong though, so it’s good to share.

A delightful combination with a great resemblance to the traditional mooncake but in a semi-solid form! The texture was smooth, creamy albeit chunky with the salted egg yolk crumbles adding a pleasant tinge of lingering saltiness- a great counter balance to the sweetness of the lotus 莲蓉 base. Along with bits of traditional mooncake biscuits, the salted yolk crumbles also added the essential crisp factor to the smooth, creamy and dense ice cream.
London fog: Earl grey with a hint of vanilla. A pleasant lingering aroma that also came with a subtle fragrance of vanilla, along with its characteristic luscious milky flavour. Though the earl grey flavour was distinctive and lingering, I would prefer if it was more intense and perhaps a slight reduction in sweetness for a more pronounced tea flavour. Nevertheless, as a fan of earl grey, this was still a tea-riffic treat for my palate! 💖 Perhaps because they are clearing stocks of the staff was too generous that I was served a HUGE scoop of it ; portion became suffice for a meal instead 🙈. Gelato here are freshly churned and only 1 pan per flavour, do check out heir ig story to be updated of the availability of the flavours each day !
