This New Cafe Serves The Dopa-st Gelato In S’pore, And You Can Choose To Have It With Croissant!

We’ve had ice cream paired with waffles, cookies, cones, bread, but thanks to Dopa Dopa Creamery, we now have ice cream with butter croissants!

New to the slew of cafés that have been sprouting on South Bridge Road is a small artisanal ice cream cafe, Dopa Dopa Creamery.

Dose of DOPAmine

Located just 2 minutes away from Clarke Quay MRT, Dopa Dopa Creamery is the perfect place to unwind on those hot sunny afternoons.

Whether it is a scoop of refreshing sorbet in the middle of the day or an indulgent dessert to end off your night, Dopa Dopa Creamery will please you with their range of ice cream.

[caption id="attachment_36823" align="aligncenter" width="640"]dopa dopa creamery Image Credit: Dopa Dopa Creamery Facebook[/caption]

Selling out on their first day of operations, here is why you need to make a trip down to Dopa Dopa Creamery if you need to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Serving only a maximum of 8 ice-cream flavours a day, Dopa Dopa Creamery’s stretchy, gooey and creamy gelato is something for hot days. The thick consistency gives the icy treat a slight chewiness, which makes it great on their crunchy cone, flaky croissant and, of course, on its own.

The Watermelon Mint and Apple Ginger sorbets are refreshing options, but if you’re seeking richer flavours, get the Roasted Pistachio or Speculoos with Lotus Biscuit which features bits and pieces of crushed caramel biscuits mixed into a creamy and milky base, giving it an extra crunchy texture

Premium flavours include Green Tea Toasted Rice, Hojicha, Home Roasted Pistachio, Home Roasted Hazelnut, and Speculoos with Lotus Biscuit.

[caption id="attachment_36824" align="aligncenter" width="1290"]dopa dopa creamery Image Credit: Burpple User Joe Yang[/caption]

Basic flavours like Banana, Apple Ginger Sorbet and Watermelon Mint Sorbet, meanwhile, are lighter and refreshing, making them a perfect accompaniment to the richer, premium flavours.

[caption id="attachment_36825" align="aligncenter" width="1290"]dopa dopa creamery Image Credit: Burpple User Emily Toh[/caption]

We highly recommend skipping the mainstream cups and cones and going straight for their flaky butter croissants instead ($5.50).

Plus, Dopa Dopa Creamery also serves staple coffee selection such as the flat white, black and espresso as well as a range of brewed tea from local tea retailer Leefe Tea. So coffee enthusiasts can look forward to getting a cuppa to complement the sweetness of their desserts.

Aqua S Is Bringing Their Famous Sea Salt Soft Serve To S’pore, And It Looks Like A Dream!

Aqua S

For all of you with a sweet tooth, your blood sugar levels are about to go through the roof.

Sydney’s famous turquoise Sea Salt Soft Serve (say it quickly 10 times) brand, Aqua S, will be opening their first outlet in Singapore soon!

[caption id="attachment_36393" align="aligncenter" width="1067"]Aqua S Image Credit: @aquas_au[/caption]

While many foods have claimed to be Instagrammable, this is by far the prettiest we’ve seen, judging from their Instagram posts.

But that’s not why we’re excited – they have some really interesting soft serve flavours!

Sydney Sea Salt Soft Serve

While Aqua S is known for their Sea Salt soft serve, they have over 100 flavours back home in Sydney.

Some of the interesting flavours include Egg Pudding, Tofu, Baileys, and Manuka Honey.

[caption id="attachment_36389" align="aligncenter" width="1080"]Aqua S Image Credit: @aquas_au[/caption]


[caption id="attachment_36390" align="aligncenter" width="1080"]Aqua S Image Credit: @aquas_au[/caption]


[caption id="attachment_36391" align="aligncenter" width="1079"]Aqua S Image Credit: @aquas_au[/caption]


[caption id="attachment_36392" align="aligncenter" width="1080"]Aqua S Image Credit: @aquas_au[/caption]

As you can see, each flavour comes in their own delightful hue, with their signature Sea Salt flavour in turquoise.

Every ice cream cone is black, which makes the colours of their soft serve look more vibrant by contrast.

You can also choose to mix 2 flavours in a swirl, because let’s be honest, with over 100 flavours, you want to try as many flavours as possible.

[caption id="attachment_36394" align="aligncenter" width="896"]Aqua S Image Credit: @aquas_au[/caption]


[caption id="attachment_36395" align="aligncenter" width="1002"]Aqua S Image Credit: @aquas_au[/caption]

After choosing the flavours for your soft serve, next comes the toppings.

Aqua S didn’t neglect this aspect because popcorn and an cotton candy are available as toppings and a freaking TOASTED MARSHMALLOW ON A STICK.

[caption id="attachment_36397" align="aligncenter" width="889"]Aqua S Image Credit: @aquas_au[/caption]


[caption id="attachment_36396" align="aligncenter" width="1080"]Aqua S Image Credit: @shalenaik[/caption]

If you want to get your hands on this stunning soft serve, Aqua S will be opening at Orchard Xchange, 11 September 2018!

Queues are DEFINITELY going to be long so be prepared.

Cold Stone Creamery’s Latest Concoction Features Cucumber Slices And…Spicy Sambal Ikan Bilis?

In another tribute to Singapore’s upcoming birthday and our diverse food culture, Cold Stone Creamery has come up with 2 new hyperlocal ice cream flavours – Nasi Lemak and Pulut Hitam.

[caption id="attachment_36016" align="aligncenter" width="960"]cold stone creamery Image Credit: Cold Stone Creamery Singapore[/caption]

These new flavours are available from 14 July to 31 August 2018.

The Nasi Lemak Ice Cream consists of coconut ice cream, roasted peanuts, rice puffs, spicy sambal ikan bilis and cucumber slices.

[caption id="attachment_36019" align="aligncenter" width="1024"]cold stone creamery Image Credit: Twitter User Xavier Lur[/caption]

Once again, we’re not sure how to feel about this. And why does every reimagined dish revolve around Nasi Lemak? Do we not any other iconic dishes?

The Pulut Hitam Ice Cream is a little more familiar. NSFs will remember the cookhouse aunties in Tekong giving Pulut Hitam ice cream on the warmer days.

The version served at Cold Stone Creamery consists of coconut ice cream and black glutinous rice. Plain and simple.

[caption id="attachment_36020" align="aligncenter" width="1024"]cold stone creamery Image Credit: Twitter User Xavier Lur[/caption]

Currently, there’s a 1-for-1 promotion on the Nasi Lemak and Pulut Hitam flavours for just $8.50. You can also add a plain or Pandan waffle cup for $1.20.

[caption id="attachment_36018" align="aligncenter" width="3366"]cold stone creamery Image Credit: Cold Stone Creamery Singapore[/caption]

This isn’t the first time that Cold Stone Creamery has come up with local flavours. Back in April, they launched Chendol Ice Cream.

[caption id="attachment_36021" align="aligncenter" width="960"]cold stone creamery Image Credit: Cold Stone Creamery Singapore[/caption]

Once again, these 2 new local flavours will be available from 14 July to 31 August 2018 at all Cold Stone Creamery outlets islandwide.

Creamery Boutique Is Gearing Up For National Day With Chilli Crab And Ondeh Ondeh Flavoured Desserts

Creamery Boutique

If you’ve been to Creamery Boutique, then you’d know that they’re famous for their homemade ice cream paired with lava cookies.

[caption id="attachment_35488" align="aligncenter" width="1600"]Creamery Boutique Image Credit: Creamery Boutique Ice Creams Singapore[/caption]

With National Day 2018 coming up, they’ve unveiled 2 Singaporean flavours to commemorate Singapore’s 53rd birthday.

Ondeh Ondeh Cookie With Milo Dinosaur Ice Cream ($8.90)

Creamery Boutique pays homage to the traditional Ondeh Ondeh kuih with a crumbly Ondeh Ondeh pandan lava cookie, filled with gula melaka.

[caption id="attachment_35486" align="aligncenter" width="1600"]Creamery Boutique Image Credit: Creamery Boutique[/caption]

That’s not all, it’s paired with their homemade Milo Dinosaur ice cream and garnished with freshly grated coconut.

If you love your traditional kuih, you ought to give this a try.

Chilli Crab Cookie With Bread Toast Ice Cream ($10.90)

This odd combination is Creamery Boutique’s first savoury lava cookie. The chewy brownie lava cookie is filled with a robust chilli gravy that’s made in-house from scratch.

[caption id="attachment_35487" align="aligncenter" width="1600"]Creamery Boutique Image Credit: Creamery Boutique[/caption]

While this brownie lava cookie already sounds odd, Bread Toast ice cream takes the cake. However, this is an interesting take on the usual Chilli Crab and Fried Mantou pairing that we’re all familiar with.

If you’re interested in trying these unique National Day flavours, do note that the Ondeh Ondeh Cookie With Milo Dinosaur ice cream is available from 14 July to 9 August 2018, while the Chilli Crab Cookie With Bread Toast Ice Cream will be available from 9 August to 31 August 2018.

Whacky or wonderful? We’ll let you be the judge of that.

From Merlions To Durians, These Uniquely S’pore Ice Cream Creations Will Make You Melt

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.

[caption id="attachment_35230" align="aligncenter" width="752"]Leeu SG Image Credit: Esplanade[/caption]

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.

[caption id="attachment_35226" align="aligncenter" width="752"]Leeu SG Image Credit: Esplanade[/caption]

The Icy Merlion is Vanilla and Strawberry-flavoured, because red and white are our national colours.

[caption id="attachment_35229" align="aligncenter" width="667"]Leeu SG Image Credit: imgflip[/caption]

That’s not all, there’s also a durian ice cream, aptly named The “Esplanade” that’s made to look like a durian.

[caption id="attachment_35227" align="aligncenter" width="752"]Leeu SG Image Credit: Esplanade[/caption]

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.

[caption id="attachment_35228" align="aligncenter" width="1080"]Leeu SG Image Credit: @leahyhlee[/caption]

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.

The First-Timer’s Guide To Food In Katong That Isn’t Just Laksa

Katong is one of my favourite neighbourhoods in Singapore. It’s very high SES living.

My aunt used to live in the area and we’d go to I12 Katong often because that’s the closest thing that Katong has to an actual mall.

Don’t get me wrong, I love I12 Katong. But what I wish I knew earlier was that Katong is packed with interesting cafes and places to explore.

So now that I’m older and wiser (that’s debatable), here’s a guide to Katong that I wish I had known about when I was younger.

Katong For First-Timers

1. Dona Manis

My friends claimed that Dona Manis Cake Shop in Katong Shopping Centre, makes the best Banana Pie in Singapore. I knew I had to try this one for myself to believe it.

Upon reaching, I met the owners of Dona Manis, Mdm Soh Tho Lang and Mr Tan Keng Eng, who were busy prepping their bakes for sale.

[caption id="attachment_34495" align="aligncenter" width="1280"] Image Credit: Discover SG[/caption]

Their bakes are made and sold in this one unit shop. Must-tries include their incredibly light Cream Puff ($3.50 for 5 pieces) and their famous Banana Pie ($2.50 per slice, $25 per pie).

[caption id="attachment_34497" align="aligncenter" width="1280"] The best Cream Puffs I’ve ever had.[/caption] [caption id="attachment_34499" align="aligncenter" width="1280"] Image Credit: Discover SG[/caption]

Dona Manis is Singapore’s hidden gem and is truly worth a visit.. You won’t find bakery shops like Dona Manis in Singapore anymore.

Dona Manis Cake Shop
Address: 865 Mountbatten Road, #B1-93, Katong Shopping Centre, Singapore 437844
Opening Hours: Mon: 9am – 5pm, Tue – Sat: 9:30am – 6pm
Contact No.: 6440 7688

2. Delicious Boneless Chicken Rice

Down the corridor from Dona Manis Cake Shop, is Delicious Boneless Chicken Rice.

Every time Katong Shopping Centre is mentioned, I hear about this chicken rice stall. And as someone who shuns chicken rice because bone-in chicken is too much of a hassle for my liking, boneless chicken rice is a God-send.

[caption id="attachment_34511" align="aligncenter" width="645"] Image Credit: Burppler Nobelle Liew[/caption]

And that’s not all, their boneless chicken rice comes with complimentary soup and free-flow achar. One thing to note is that the soup they serve is not your generic MSG water – they actually cook proper soups to go with their chicken rice.

After all, good chicken rice should not overlook any aspect of the meal.

If you’re ready to take on long queues and begin the quest of finding a free table, then you’re ready for some Delicious Boneless Chicken Rice.

3. Birds Of Paradise

Located beside other popular eateries along East Coast Road, Birds of Paradise gelato boutique is completely different from any other local ice cream parlour – they offer up botanical inspired gelato flavours.

[caption id="attachment_34512" align="aligncenter" width="645"] Image Credit: Burppler Ziyue Guo[/caption]
Made on site, their floral infused ice cream flavours are crafted with all natural ingredients, so there are no artificial flavours or colourings at this gelato boutique!
Serving between 9 and 12 gelato flavours, the most popular flavours at this Kallang ice cream spot is its Spiced Pear (which has a slight cinnamon aftertaste due to the infusion of star anise), Strawberry Basil (which has an refreshing taste unlike artificial tasting ice creams which can taste a tad heavy) and White Chrysanthemum (which has cacao nibs scattered in every scoop)!
If you’re looking for a sweet and unique treat that isn’t overwhelming, Birds of Paradise is the place to be!
Definitely in a league of its own, this gelato boutique is on our list of MUST TRY places!
Birds of Paradise Gelato Boutique
Address: 63 East Coast Road, #01-05, S428776
Opening Hours: Tue – Thu, Sun: 12pm – 10pm, Fri – Sat: 12pm – 10.30pm, Mon: Closed
Contact: 9678 6092

4. An Acai Affair

The latest kid on the block is none other than An Acai Affair!

Located in the east, An Acai Affair is set to revoluntionalise the #eatclean trend with their delectable acai bowls and fruit smoothies.

[caption id="attachment_22439" align="aligncenter" width="1072"] Image Credit: Credit:[/caption]

Their Signature Acai Bowl – Tropical Coconut Bowl no doubt stands out from the other specialty stores with the use of an actual coconut husk as a bowl. Despite the relatively small portion due to the coconut husk, expect generous toppings of fruits the likes of pineapple, kiwi, blueberry as well as granola and even wolfberries.

An Acai Affair
Address: 101 East Coast Road, Singapore 428796
Opening hours: Sun to Thu 12nn – 10pm; Fri to Sat 12nn – 11.30pm
Tel: 9792 0837

5. Ampang Niang Tou Foo

Yong Tau Foo is one of my favourite comfort foods. It’s customisable because you get to choose the ingredients you want, which are then blanched in broth and served with rice or noodles.

At Ampang Niang Tou Foo, they serve Ampang-style Yong Tau Foo.

[caption id="attachment_34518" align="aligncenter" width="645"] Image Credit: Burppler NUS FAT Club[/caption]

The difference is that they stuff their usual Yong Tau Foo ingredients such as chillis and fried beancurd with minced meat paste instead of fish paste. It gives the ingredients a lot more bite than fish paste does.

That’s not all, the Yong Tau Foo is served in a light broth with soya beans and dried anchovies.

Don’t forget their chilli sauce to add a little “oomph” to the Yong Tau Foo.

Ampang Niang Tou Foo
Address: 225A East Coast Road, Singapore 428922
Opening Hours: Sat – Tue & Thu: 11am – 8.30pm, Wed & Fri: Closed
Contact no.: 6345 3289

6. Chin Mee Chin Confectionery 

This place has been a long-running favourite among the locals. Located along East Coast Road, this nostalgic coffee shop is a nice change to modern joints.

[caption id="attachment_34519" align="aligncenter" width="1116"] Image Credit: @_qyun[/caption]

Known for it’s decor typical of 1950s Singapore, with retro marble top tables, floor tiles, and ceiling fans. It’s also known for their traditional kaya toasts.

Instead of the kaya toast bread you’d typically see, their Kaya Toast is served in a hamburger-type bun and slathered with their homemade kaya and a slice of butter.

[caption id="attachment_34520" align="aligncenter" width="1290"] Image Credit: Burppler foodslut_[/caption]

These buns are made in house and toasted till they are slightly burnt for that nice “char” taste. This place can get pretty busy so try and avoid peak hours if you’re looking at dining in.

Chin Mee Chin Confectionary
Address: 204 East Coast Road, Singapore 428903
Opening Hours: Tues – Sun: 8.30 am – 4pm, Closed on Mondays
Contact No.: 6345 0419

7. Beriwell

A not-so-little space at Katong, along the dessert-filled East Coast Road that houses An Acai Affair and Birds Of Paradise, Beriwell makes you feel like you’re chilling at a shack on the beach.

[caption id="attachment_31050" align="aligncenter" width="2679"] Image Credit: Chee Kuen[/caption]

Easy to spot with its beachy murals, tropical vibes, flamingo printed seats, and rattan chairs, this casual joint will give you plenty of fodder for the ‘gram.

The brainchild of friends Galissa, Dash, and Anand, this acai joint was born out of a love for healthy living and acai.

The trio created the Superswirl, a soft serve that comes in 2 flavours: acai (‘Acai‘) and coconut (‘Coco Majik‘). You can even have the two flavours swirled into one (‘The Twist‘)!

[caption id="attachment_31053" align="aligncenter" width="2543"] (Image Credit: Chee Kuen)[/caption]

Dairy free, gluten free, and vegan-friendly, the Superswirl is tagged at $6.90 for a small cup, where you can pick 2 toppings out of the day’s selection of fruits and crunch, and $9.90 for a large serving, where you get to choose 4 toppings.

The acai soft serve is a creamier, smoother version of the refreshing acai bowls we all love – perfect for a warm day in the East.

While the menu is still pretty trim at the moment, the store has plenty more up it’s sleeve. We hear there will be more sauces, more toppings, and another smoothie being added to the mix!

This super cute hangout is Instagrammable, chill, and serves up some healthy AND delicious stuff. If you live in the East, make sure to pop by for a refreshing treat in this little tropical retreat.

19 East Coast Road #01-01, Singapore 428746
Opening Hours: 
Daily, 9am – 11pm

8. Ponggol Nasi Lemak

Make no mistake, Ponggol Nasi Lemak is not in Punggol, nor is it halal. They serve up Chinese-style Nasi Lemak (Yes.)

[caption id="attachment_34522" align="aligncenter" width="645"] Image Credit: Burppler I makan SG[/caption]

Established in 1979, this household name is known for their lemak sambal chilli and crispy fried chicken wings and some say the “Best Nasi Lemak in Singapore”.

There are also plenty of dishes for you to choose from.

[caption id="attachment_34521" align="aligncenter" width="645"] Image Credit: Burppler feedmefood_[/caption]

It’s been a supper spot for many Singaporeans so if you’re coming here for supper, be prepared to queue.

Opening Hours: Fri – Wed: 5.30pm – 2.30am, Thu: Closed

Singapore’s First Vegan Ice Cream Joint Takes The ‘Guilty’ Away From Pleasure

If you’re like me and you ate your entire body weight in steamboat and treats over the Chinese New Year break, it’s time to get back in shape!

But who says you can’t enjoy a little sweat treat every now and then.

Over at Brownice, they serve up one of the best vegan ice creams in Singapore and best part, it’s completely guilt-free!

You Can Have Your Ice Cream And Eat It Too

Being vegan or lactose-intolerant, you probably know how frustrating it is to be restricted from ice creams.

Fret not, Brownice serves vegan-friendly ice cream that uses brown rice as a substitute. Yes, you read that right. No dairy or eggs in this one!

If you’re expecting a rich gelato texture, unfortunately Brownice’s ice cream is less creamy and more icy (think of a cross between sorbet and ice cream).

While it is texturally lighter on the palate, it certainly does not lack flavour.

Looking for something light and refreshing for those hot sunny days? Their fruit based flavours such as the Sunny Strawberry Fields (from $3.50 per scoop) will be the choice to go for.

For creamier flavours, you should definitely try out their Black Sesame, Gila Gula Melaka and The Perfect Matcha.

Even better, treat yourself and go for the Waffle-licious Ice Cream ($8 with a scoop of ice cream).

Brownice prides in the fact that their ice cream contains less than 3% fat and boasts a calorie count of 80-140kcal per scoop. How’s that for your waistline?

Their outlet at East Coast Road serves a variety of Italian fare as well. Brownice is here to prove that Italian food can still be enjoyed if you’re vegan.

They serve one of the best vegan friendly pizzas ($14-$19) I’ve tried to date. You can barely taste the difference from your traditional Italian pizza.

The pastas ($10-$18) have great flavours too although most are tomato-based. Their Lasagna ($17), which features layers of diced eggplants and tofu in a thick and creamy tomato ragu sauce, is a crowd favourite!
