O Happi Place – Unique Gelato Flavours in Everton Park!
May 14, 2022
Waffles and gelato will always be a power couple, so we’re always happy to visit when yet another cafe offering these goods has popped up. Located within Everton Park, O Happi Place is run by husband-and-wife team Faith and Jeff, who are quite the power couple themselves. Look forward to flavours of gelato personally developed by Faith herself.
The cosy space within is lit up by warm lighting accents and most eyes would instantly be drawn to a little corner bursting with greenery from the couple’s own private collection. There are also seats located outside for those who prefer to enjoy their desserts accompanied by a breeze, and more potted plants.
A single scoop of gelato is priced at $4.50 while a double goes for $8.50, with premium flavours costing an additional $1-2. Cones and rainbow bread (a local classic!) cost an additional $1 each. Sadly, the rainbow bread was not available that day, which is a testament to how popular they are! Of course, there are waffles at $6.50 and an added scoop of gelato brings it up to $9.90.
You can also pair your desserts with beverages like coffee and tea. There’s also affogato ($7.50) if you enjoy a boost of caffeine with the sweetness of gelato.
As for the gelato flavours, you can expect classics like Dark Chocolate and Black Sesame, but it’s the unique, premium ones that you have to give a try. If you can’t decide which to go for, you can opt for their mini cones at $1.50(kind of like a sampler but more generous).
One of their best-selling flavours is Ju Pu, which is an intriguing combination of pu’er and chrysanthemum tea. This is actually an original creation by Faith, who was inspired by her favourite teas. The first bite released quite a potent surge of chrysanthemum notes in a sweet, milky form, with the creaminess gradually taking centre stage as I kept eating. It was hard for me to detect the fragrance of pu’er but overall, this was an unusual flavour that’s worth a try.
For my gelato and waffle pairing, I opted for Matcha and Cereal Milk. Now this was proper matcha gelato that’s tough to come by in Singapore. Most times, I end up with matcha ice cream that sees the milkiness of the ice-cream overpowering the bitter notes of the matcha, which is disheartening for those who want to enjoy that matcha oomph. But O Happi Place’s version had deliciously strong and bitter notes that definitely satisfied the matcha lover in me.
Now, it was time to treat the child-like sweet-tooth side of me and the Cereal Milk was one I truly enjoyed. It was certainly true to its name, with that tiny bit of savouriness from the cereal coming through the smooth, milky sweetness of the gelato.
The waffle was just the way I liked it – light and crispy on the outside, yet soft and fluffy on the inside.
Coffee is always a pleasant drink to have, and the robust aroma of their Latte ($5) rounded everything off well. It was also quite smooth, though a touch too acidic.
The Matcha Latte ($6 for hot, $7 for iced) was almost as good as their matcha gelato. The bitterness was slightly toned down in the beverage but still strong enough to be properly called a matcha latte.
There’s definitely a wide range of flavours to be tried at this interesting gelato place and their waffles will certainly not disappoint you. If you decide to head down, keep a lookout for any new flavours in store and give us a heads-up if there’s any you think we should try and we’ll make the trip down to give it a go!
