Previously known as Regroup x Scoop Therapy at Balestier, the shift in location to Odeon Katong is a reunion with the sister café, Group Therapy at Katong V.
Leave the cooking to the sister (Group Therapy) just across the road, because there is only ice cream and desserts available at Scoop Therapy.
The café is separated into 2 sections, with an Ice Cream Bar serving 16 flavours each time and a Dessert Station.
Interesting flavours include the Salted Egg Yolk (again), Apple Pie, Butter Beer and Lychee Rose.
A single scoop of ice cream will cost $4 in a cone or a cup and $4.50 for a Charcoal cone.
Top up $3 for double scoops and $5 for triple scoops.
Hmm. Trying to imagine how to balance 3 scoops of ice cream in a small ice cream cone.
The Lychee Rose was one of our favourites, with a fragrant floral scent, perfect as a pre-kissing dessert. Oooops.
The Salted Egg Yolk, on the other hand, wasn’t as distinct in its salted egg taste even though it had a grainy texture.
It was déjà vu when we saw the pyrotechnique display with the frozen marshmallow torched right in front of our eyes. Looks similar to the famed Frozen S’more from Dominique Ansel Bakery though.
Copy? No, INSPIRED.
The S’mores ($6.50) had an interesting contrast in temperature, but could be a tad expensive for its small portion.
Cold on the inside with a dark chocolate ice cream and cracker crumb core, and hot on the outside with the torched marshmallow. Anything for Instagram man, anything.
We loved the Earl Grey ice cream in the Ice Cream Bomb ($6.50) with distinctive tea notes, kiap-ed in between the choux puff with a generous amount of hot fudge poured over it.
A pity the choux puff was dry and hard, hot fudge kind of overwhelming.
Need some cold therapy?
These cold desserts Scoop Therapy would probably come in handy especially after a hot and spicy meal at the nearby Katong Laksa.
