Ice Cream Skool – A School You’ll Never Want To Be Dismissed From!
Riiiiing! Class dismissed. Do you remember the days when you so eagerly counted down to the end of a school day? I know of a skool in Tampines where students genuinely want to stay back. You don’t have to be a straight-A student to attend Ice Cream Skool. All you need is a big appetite and a sweet tooth.
Patrons are greeted with a simple, yet cosy, interior, that’s complete with spots that are perfect for OOTDs. Hidden in every corner are charging outlets as well — perfect for those armed with laptops for study sessions or project meetings. If Ice Cream Skool still doesn’t sound attractive to you, their prices will definitely change that. I mean, have you even had a scoop of ice cream for only $2?!
Remember that one teacher in school who was always patient and helpful when you messed up? Co-founder, Yihui, is that teacher. As we struggled to decipher the menu, Yihui walked us through the menu. When we were undecided on our ice cream flavour, she encouraged us to try ALL the ice cream flavours before making a decision.
We ordered one of their super affordable set meals which comprised the best of everything. Set meal 2 ($22.50) consists of a pasta of your choice, a waffle with two scoops of ice cream, and a refillable pot of tea. If you’re dropping by for just desserts, go for set menu 1 ($11.90), which promises a waffle with two scoops of ice-cream, and a refillable pot of tea. Now, that’s really a bang for the buck.
For the pasta, we chose the Spicy Tom Yum Pasta. Strands of tagliatelle are covered in a hot and sour tom yum paste. What hits you first is a brief fire, before an enduring sour sensation kicks in. Taste-wise, it’s pretty mediocre because it does lack that distinct aroma present in tom yum.
The pasta is topped with a handful of prawns as well. However, one might find the dish incomplete. Perhaps, the addition of more ingredients would complete the experience.
As part of the set, we had the butterchip waffles which we paired with Hazelnut Chocolate and Durian ice cream. Butterchip waffles? Yes, you saw that right. Chocolate chips are embedded in the snowflake-shaped buttermilk waffles! Their waffles were airy and crunchy, and tasted so good especially with lashings of chocolate sauce. The butterchip waffle is also available as an a la Carte item ($3.80).
Given its price point, the ice cream (prices range from $2 – $8.40) was pretty well-executed. The hazelnut chocolate was smooth, nutty, and creamy. As for the durian ice cream, its pungent aroma captured my attention for a while but I thought that the texture can be improved.
Let the sour notes of the Lemon Ginger Tea ($4.90 ala Carte) cleanse your palate while you finish up your set.
What’s most unique at Ice Cream Skool is actually available in set menu 3 ($7.90). Diners can look forward to Chicken-in-a-Waffle and a Rootbeer float. Instead of the usual fried chicken served on waffles, what you get is a lean piece of fried chicken encased within the airy and crispy waffle.
The flavoursome combination is best eaten with copious amounts of maple syrup!
The snowflake-shaped waffles also come in other unique flavours. The Sweet Berries($4.20) features homemade waffles that are infused with strawberries, and drizzled with strawberry jam.
If there’s an ice cream flavour that you should pick to complement the Sweet Berries. it is the Coconut icecream. It is an unorthodox combination, but undoubtedly a refreshing one!
Now, do you want to attend this skool? Ice Cream Skool also helps to organize corporate events and birthday parties. I’m sure your guests will walk away happy, like we did!
