About a year ago, Thai Coconut Ice Creams were quite the fad in Singapore, with a few dedicated kiosks and pasar malam bazaar stalls opening up.
These Thai Coconut Ice Cream are popular among Singaporeans at Bangkok’s JJ Chatuchak Weekend Market – scooped in coconut husks, toppings of corn and peanuts, with juicy slices of fresh coconut flesh adding some superfood element.
So imagine my slight surprise when I saw a NEW Koko Thai Coconut Ice Cream opening up at (the non-air-conditioned) Star Vista of all places.
Koko was started by 3 friends who had their first dessert stall at Amoy Street Food Centre.
Previously, I had a price friendly single scoop 3 toppings at $3.50 at their Causeway Point branch (which closed It think).
Prices have increased. Guess it is the rental.
A single scoop with 2 toppings in half a coconut shell, plus a small cup of coconut juice at $3.90. Double scoops go for $4.90.
Available only the Star Vista outlet, a Kokolicious premium version is sold. It contains coconut flesh strips within, and is richer in coconut flavour.
Good stuff though – creamy, not too sweet, and indeed had some fruity strips for that added bite.
Thankfully, the coconut flesh has already been scraped out, included below the ice cream, making eating a much easier affair.
Would I have it again? Not entirely sure. Must prefer to have this somewhere seated down.
