Though we live in the tropics, we never cease to complain about how bloody hot the weather is. Recently, temperatures have managed to hit a high of 35 Degrees Celsius and IT IS NOT OKAY.
In response to this ridiculous heat, I’ve taken at least 3 cold showers per day over the weekend, and consumed enough Magnum ice creams to develop lactose intolerance. Okay, I exaggerate but you get my point.
Speaking of ice cream, Esplanade recently saw the opening of a local artisanal ice cream shop.
Introducing, Leeu SG.
You Mean, We Can Eat The Merlion?
With a logo of a lion’s head that looks way better than LiHo’s, this local artisanal ice cream is making waves across the nation for their iconic Merlion ice pop, The Icy Merlion.
The Icy Merlion is Vanilla and Strawberry-flavoured, because red and white are our national colours.
That’s not all, there’s also a durian ice cream, aptly named The “Esplanade” that’s made to look like a durian.
Other items on the menu include soda floats and soft serve ice creams.
Choose from 4 different soda floats, each with their own locally-inspired names.
The lychee-flavoured Sentosa Breeze, The Red Dot with peach soda, The Zouk-Out Cure with yuzu lemon ginger soda, and The Old Timer which is a pandan-infused milk beancurd float.
Their soft serves are made with Blue Majik. No it’s not a drug. Blue Majik is a new superfood that’s a derivative of sea algae spirulina.
Every soft serve is served (no pun intended) in a normal or charcoal Taiyaki (Japanese fish-shaped waffle).
For the month of June, Leeu SG will be selling their local desserts at discounted prices. Get your Merlion Ice Pop at $3.80 (U.P $4.80) and the Esplanade Ice Cream at $8.80 (U.P $11.80).
And lastly, you will be able to buy a unicorn float for $1 with any purchase of a drink.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to get myself a Merlion to munch on and get that adorable AF unicorn float. Peace.
