Creamier – Popular Ice Cream Cafe Opens Another ‘Playground’ At Gillman Barracks
Shortly after Creamier’s sister outlet, Sunday Folks, celebrated their first anniversary last weekend, Creamier found a second playground at Gillman Barracks.
Unlike their first outlet at Toa Payoh HDB estate that experienced a continuous human traffic, Gillman Barracks was relatively quieter and “ulu” geographically.
Ok, no more dining at the playground at Creamier’s first outlet due to the limited indoor space, long waiting hours, birds hovering over our heads and falling leaves with added ingredients on our waffles.
Similar to their first outlet, the space is quite cramped with 25 seats indoors, which will probably expand to the outdoor sheltered area in the near future.
The menu offerings are similar, with Ice Cream ($3.30 for Single scoop/ $5.60 for Double scoops), Waffle ($6 for Plain/ $8.80 with 1 scoop/ $11.60 with 2 scoops).
Premium flavours would set you back an additional $0.90.
2 premium ice cream flavours are exclusively available here: Pomegranate Yoghurt and Macadamia Tropicana.
We loved the Macadamia Tropicana ice cream with rich, creamy coconut base, infused with pineapple and macadamia nuts.
Milky with a citrusy touch, the balance was pretty spot on and not overpowering.
The Pomegranate Yoghurt ice cream came with small chunks of pomegranate in it with an interesting additional texture.
The fruity, sourish base could be a little strong for us.
Their iconic double stacked thick waffles were slightly crispy on the outside and moist on the inside with an egg fragrance.
Not too bad, but the waffles at their first outlet scored in terms of crispiness and less charred surface.
They would probably need more conditioning for their new waffle machines.
Playground vs barracks, crowded heartland vs peaceful outskirts, old vs new ice cream flavours.
Just wondering: Who will travel ALL THE WAY here for ice cream and waffles?
