Cottontail Creamery – Crazy Ice Cream Flavours in Serangoon!
Christmas came early this year, in the form of a newly-opened cafe, Cottontail Creamery, found within walking distance of Serangoon bus interchange. Cottontail Creamery enthrals patrons with a Yuletide-inspired interior and festive decorations. They have mini exhibits of dining ware and wooden furniture too.
Get the best of both savoury and sweet dishes in this dainty cafe. What you must know is that the owner, who’s from Switzerland, dishes out an array of unique ice-cream flavours, homemade crepes and waffles with a hint of French influence.
The Homemade Crepe ($3.80) caught our eyes. Unfamiliar patrons can personalise their French pancake dish with a variety of savoury and sweet add-ons. For a savoury crepe, we recommend a combination of Organic Egg (Sous-vide) ($2), Kurobuta Ham ($2.50), Mushrooms ($1.50) and Semi-roasted Cherry Tomatoes ($1.50). While the hearty mix of sous vide egg, ham and white button mushroom tasted decent, it is the cherry tomatoes that elevated the crepe with its slightly raisin-like texture, sweetness, and sourness. If you prefer sweet crepes, you can go for the all-time favourite Nutella. You can even get a scoop of ice cream to go along with your ham if you’re feeling a tad adventurous.
We had the homemade Waffles ($4.80) with two scoops of ice cream. While not particularly stellar, the waffle is best eaten hot before it loses its crispness. What won over our hearts was the diverse selection of ice cream flavours (Single scoop/$3.50, Double scoop/$6.50, premium scoop additional $1). Besides the usual vanilla and Thai Milk Tea, Cottontail boasts flavours such as Mont Blanc Chestnut and Passion Fruit Meringue! We had a scoop of the Extra Virgin Olive Oil & Blackcurrant icecream, and a scoop of Craft Beer IPA to go with our waffles. Aren’t the flavours unique? I fell head over heels in love with the Craft beer IPA. It had a surprisingly pleasant and light taste that ends with a subtle alcoholic kick. I’m not a fan of alcohol, but this craft beer IPA is impressive because one could enjoy the taste of craft beer without that intense bitterness.
Another noteworthy flavour was the Piedmont Hazelnut & Chocolate Chips that we got separately. It remained addictive without being too jelak. The chocolate chips gave added texture to the entire experience. This is a must-try!
Cottontail Creamery hasn’t forgotten the cafe-goers who love a good beverage. The Homemade Pink Lemonade ($4) is an excellent choice. The drink was surprisingly sweet and refreshing, making it an enjoyable drink on a hot day. The Matcha Latte ($5) is unfortunately a tad too bitter for my taste, but you could always help yourself to some brown sugar to sweeten it up. Its bitterness will do well to balance out the sweetness of the ice-cream waffles, if you’re having it together.
Start the festive celebration right by making a visit to Cottontail Creamery. I’m definitely making a second trip here because their brunch menu is about to be launched soon!
