Black Sesame

$3.80 · 24 Reviews

Definitely lived up to the hype! Sicilian Pistachio (+$1) was really creamy and had a really full flavour that many ice cream parlors fail to achieve 👍🏻👍🏻 Despicable (+$0.70) was more normal and nothing special, but honestly can’t go wrong with the ultimate combination of banana, brownies and walnut 😋😋 Will be back to try their many many other flavours (sampled their Black Sesame which is really gao and good!!), as well as their brownies and waffles 🐽🐽

The charcoal waffle ($6.50) was crispy though it didn’t have much flavour of its own. The green tea ice cream was thick and had a rich matcha flavour. The black sesame ice cream was nutty in flavour and very fragrant too. A double scoop costs $7.50. The ice cream here’s all smooth in texture as well.

Apiary serves up some delicious looking flavours I really had a hard time deciding what I wanted even after sampling a handful of flavours. Decided to get some unique scoops instead of the more common flavours like chocolate or black sesame which are available at more ice cream parlours. Opted for these to be served on a charcoal waffle! The waffles took a few minutes to prepare but they were gorgeously crisp on the outside, and soft on the inside. They’re really dark black, unlike some charcoal waffles that tend to be grey. Topped with three colourful scoops of ice cream and chocolate sauce plus honey on the side, the waffles at Apiary sure make a pretty picture.

Ice cream flavours:
- Matcha (Hvala)
Sucker for last scoops or portions, so when the staff said this was the last scoop we caved. Rich matcha flavour, not sure if this is just made from Hvala matcha powder or whether it is the same ice cream served at Hvala. Either way, this will satisfy matcha lovers as the matcha flavour is very prominent, and there’s even a bitter aftertaste. This flavour was replaced immediately after with houjicha.

- The Apiary
Almost everyone trying flavours asks the same question: what’s The Apiary? Turns out it’s a honey base with cacao nibs. It’s one of their signatures and popular flavours. A bit on the sweeter side, but quite nice with the waffles and matcha ice cream to balance it out. Also enjoyed the crunchy cacao nibs in the ice cream.

- Blue Milk
Another one of their popular flavours, the Blue Milk comes in a pretty pastel blue shade. Some might be turned off by the colour, but I thought it was nice. It’s quite a mild ice cream, but it goes well with the waffles.

Compared to the ice cream at Creamier, the scoops at Apiary don’t melt as quickly. The waffles at Apiary are also a different style so it’s not that fair to compare them, but they are able to hold their own ground as they’re crispy on the outside, soft on the inside. I’m also really impressed with how dark their charcoal waffles are. However, I feel that Apiary doesn’t seem to offer as wide a selection of ice cream flavours as other ice cream parlours at any one time, and the flavours that we tried today, though good, weren’t delicious or unique enough to deserve a reorder. I didn’t see pistachio available, which was a bit disappointing. Still, I might be back to try their black sesame flavour with the brioche bun though, so hopefully that fares better.

Picked their black sesame and earl grey lavender today to pair with their baked waffles drizzled with brown sugar and honey at the side. Black sesame was good, the taste was so intense! The earl grey lavender served here was one of my top list too.


Ordered the black sesame and caramelised strawberry strawberry ($7.2 for double scoop) to go with the waffle ($4.5) and they didn’t disappoint. Ice cream was handmade, smooth and not overly sweet.

Pardon the title this ice cream isn’t actually despicable it’s just the name. It’s a banana flavor generously studded with chunks of walnut. Smooth and creamy but i’m not sure how long this flavor is gonna be around as they regularly change flavors.

Other flavors you should try: 70% dark chocolate, black sesame

The gao gao-ness (richness) of this ice cream is worth every cent and yup, a scoop is sufficient to get some sugar cravings fixed🖤

A sweet spot for specialty desserts and ice cream, located just along Neil Road (5 mins’ walk from Outram Park MRT). The ice cream are all made from scratch in their kitchen without the use of artificial flavouring or colouring. Their waffles are also freshly made-to-order and served with homemade chocolate sauce and maple syrup.
As you might have guessed it, the flavours of the two scoops were The Apiary (Vanilla with honey and bee pollen) and Black Sesame. Even though the waffle wasn’t amazing, that robust black sesame taste from the ice cream bought me over.
Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️


Have been hearing quite a bit about Apiary's Sesame Treat ($12) and because it's so unconventional for a dessert in Singapore, I have been really keen to try it!

The dessert comprises of white and black sesame ice-cream with sesame seeds, sesame oil and Japanese sea salt.

You're supposed to taste the two scoops separately and on their own before proceeding to add the toppings with which upon clarification from the staff, you are supposed to pour over the ice-cream however much you want. I initially put a slight amount of each topping in and felt the sea salt was wayyyyyy too salty, so I decided not to add anymore. I ended up using all the sesame oil and seeds though because those are really good stuff. 🤤 I should have used them sparingly with every few mouths though, so as to keep the savouriness strong throughout.

Overall, this dessert is surely more than just a novelty; if you are an avid sesame person, this will definitely appeal to you in all ways, although I think all dessert fans should give this a go at least once for the experience! 😋
