The waffle has a nice crisp exterior with stretchy and chewy Chinese rice cake (年糕) inside. The nian gao was not too sweet with hints of brown sugar. I enjoyed the contrasting texture of the chewy nian gao and crispy waffle. The tie guan yin ice cream was creamy and light in flavour with a very mild taste of tea which I wish the fragrance of tea could be stronger. They do not allow flavour tasting so it's really a hit/miss.

Other flavours available are cookies and cream, sea salt gula melaka, osmanthus oolong, dark chocolate, yuzu shiso, Hoegaarden Rosee beer, chrysanthemum goji berries, matcha butterfly pea soy, roselle smoked plum, pi pa gao mint, white peach oolong, strawberry chia seeds, Jasmine green milk tea and earl grey milk tea.

Cold Flings is a cosy cafe serving ice cream till 2am daily at High Park Residences. Indoor seatings are minimal but they do have outdoor seatings too. I tried their oolong osmanthus on a cone. The ice cream was creamy but fell short on the floral/tea flavours and their cones were not crispy either. I expected something better when they charged premium prices for their flavours. 》$5.50 (Gold Flavour) + $1 Cone

Over here at Hvala, they churned three different types of dairy-free matcha gelato ranging from Matcha°1 with the lightest intensity of matcha to Matcha°3 with the strongest intensity of matcha.

I went with the popular choice of Matcha°2 with medium-intensity of matcha. It was thick, creamy and rich in flavour which was good enough for me without being too sweet while maintaining the slight bitterness of matcha 》$6.90

Kooks Creamery is known for its molten lava cookies topped with a scoop of ice cream. I went with the signature lava set that came with a chocolate molten cookie and a single scoop of ice cream.

Do expect about 15mins waiting time as the cookie is baked upon order and then served on a hot pan sprinkled with cookie crumbs. The ice cream is served separately and to be placed above the cookie when ready where the molten lava starts oozing out, giving a contrast of hot and cold in a dessert.

The chocolate cookie was sweet but it went well with my choice of blue chai Hokkaido milk ice cream which was creamy and not too sweet. I would suggest going for ice cream with lighter flavours to balance the sweetness from the chocolate cookie 》$9.50 + $1.50 Speciality Flavour

Cosy ice cream cafe located at Kingsford Waterbay Condo. Tried the Cheesy Rosy and Yin & Yang gelato. Preferred the cheesy rosy for its light and not too cheesy flavour 》$5/Scoop

No tasting allowed so I went with what the staff recommended - Osmanthus Jasmine & Lychee Raspberry Rose.

The osmanthus jasmine is a light and refreshing floral milk-based gelato infused with osmanthus and jasmine. The flavours were light and I feel the flavour of jasmine kind of overpowered the osmanthus. The lychee raspberry rose was a better choice with stronger flavours and citrus notes from the raspberries. While the pu-erh waffles seem interesting as tea-flavoured waffle, the texture of the waffle is crispy but dense (not airy) which makes it feels a little too heavy for an after-meal sweet treat.

Creamier is definitely one of the places that do both ice cream and waffles so well together. Waffles are crisp on the outside, warm and fluffy on the inside. The earl grey lavender is light and fragrant with hints of lavender notes and a distinct French earl grey tea aroma while the butterscotch almond is a rich and milky caramel ice cream with crushed roasted almonds. It yields a smoky-sweet, slightly burnt caramel flavour that's rich and aromatic.

Thick and golden brown waffles are done to a crispy texture on both the inside and outside. I personally prefer waffles that are crispy outside yet fluffy on the inside hence the waffles at Around didn’t appeal to me. Moving on to their gelato where I got myself the strawberry cheesecake and Yakult oreo. I like the strawberry cheesecake where they balance the creamy and savoury flavours well without being overly sweet or cheesy. The Yakult oreo was on the icier side and it kind of fell short on the Yakult flavours 》$15.90 + $1 Premium Flavour

Single scoop gelato on crispy brown waffles with mini marshmallows, rainbow sprinkles, drizzle of chocolate sauce and icing sugar.

I tried the Yubari Rock Melon and Hokkaido Milk gelato which were both thick and creamy. The Yubari Rock Melon was refreshing and milky, just like a combination of rockmelon and milk while the Hokkaido Milk gelato is just something simple, creamy and milky that won’t go wrong with waffles. The staff is friendly and helpful in recommending flavours based on one’s taste buds/preferences. Sampling is also available upon request. I also had both the peach and rose organic tea which was fragrant, refreshing and helps to cleanse the palate after some sweet treat.

It’s a nice place to chill and relax. The shop is open till late at night (2AM on Fri & Sat), good for some late-night sweet treat.

Coconut ice cream served in coconut husk with three toppings. I choose aloe vera, coconut meat and data de coco to go along with my order. Additional option for add-ons is also available. The coconut ice cream was thick and creamy but lacked the fragrance and richness of coconut flavour. Their beverage probably fared better for a cool and refreshing treat to beat the heat 》$4.90

Not forgetting to end the meal with their East-Meets-West dessert made with sago and coconut ice cream with gula melaka to complete your meal on a sweet note.

No trying hence it was a really tough choice choosing flavours. I decided not to be adventurous and went with the flavours that were recommended. I got their signature milk & honey and pistachio gelato with waffles.

The milk and honey flavour was good and tasted similar to honeycomb. Pistachio was creamy but not as nutty as expected. The waffles are soft and crispy on the outside but get a little dry inside. The price is also relatively steep for the serving size. They are located just behind Bedok 85 and may be an ideal place for some cold and sweet treats after dinner. They are also open past midnight and are great for those who live in the East.

I'm in a relationship with food. Why can't we just declare our never ending love and vows towards some food item? I'm sure that would not result in divorces.
