Another new ice cream cafe has opened, though this isn’t an unfamiliar name especially for those staying around Upper Thomson.
Salted Caramel Artisan Ice Cream has finally opened another outlet at Lorong Kilat (off Bukit Timah) right next to Udders Ice cream.
Well, well… it is also neighbours with Udders at Upper Thomson, and one wonders about the relationship between the two of them.
On that note, Udders Ice Cream has also just launched a limited Salted Caramel flavour. Of course, that can be purely coincidental.
The new Salted Caramel outlet is much bigger than the former, less echoey, with minimalist woody décor.
Flavours can include rotating choices of Ispahan, Dark Chocolate Sorbet, Cookies & Cream, Earl Grey, Espresso & Caramel Biscuits, Horlicks Tim Tam, Lychee, Milo Crunch, Raspberry Sorbet, Tahitian Vanilla, Black Sesame, Speculoos, Kaya Toast, Hazelnut Praline, and Peppermint Brownie.
A single scoop goes at $3.90, double for $7.60, while a take-home pint of 500ml is at $13.90.
You can pair this up with Waffles (additional $5), Waffles Cone ($1) or Waffle Bowl ($1).
For first-timers, you probably have to go for signature Salted Caramel, a sweet and salty flavour included with hand harvested French flower sea salt aka Fleur de Sel.
What was appealing was that sweet, salty balance yet with a touch of that lingering bitter edge (more than the usual), plesurable on the taste buds.
I generally find Salted Caramel more of an ‘adult’ flavour, and you need to savour that slowly to better appreciate the nuances.
The ice cream was slightly on the sweet side (almost like having toffee), so I feel that the choice of the accompanying flavour is as important.
The rich and dairy free Dark Chocolate Sorbet was the recommended choice, with bittersweet chocolate flavour. It was not as intense as some of the rest out there, but good enough to feel satisfied.
