And not surprisingly, Sundays Ice Cream is the nth number of ice cream and gelato bars that opened in Singapore the past months.
Taking over the space previously occupied by 818 Durians & Pastries at Kurau Court, the 34-seater space has a simple interior with 12 indoors seats and 22 alfresco seats in their mini “courtyard”.
The menu is straightforward, offering Ice Cream (Single Classic $3.90, Double Classic $7, Single Premium $4.90, Double Premium $9), Cone (+$1.50) and Buttermilk Waffles ($4.90).
16 flavours are available each time, with classic flavours such as Black Sesame Street, Coco Lychee, Honeycomb, Coco Mint, Stracciatella (milk with chocolate shavings), Salty Caramel, Hazel’s Nut, Hazel’s Coco and Crema Mama (condensed milk).
Premium flavours include Honey Nougat, Fifty Shades of Earl Grey, Avocado Fellow, Hazel’s Kopi, Gingerbread Cookies, Caramelised Banana and Butterscotch.
Some flavours are as interesting-sounding, not commonly found in most ice cream bars.
My favourite of those tried was the Avocado Fellow – rich, creamy and smooth in texture with a distinctive avocado taste that tasted almost like the real fruit.
It was enjoyable as the texture wasn’t icy and not too sweet.
However, even though the Buttermilk Waffle ($4.90) was fragrant with butter and vanilla flavour, it was rather cakey with minimum crisp on the surface.
The Buttermilk waffle also came with a choice of chocolate or caramel sauce, sprinkled with lotus biscuit and icing sugar for the extra garnishing.
The Black Sesame Street was worth a mention, as creamy as Avocado Fellow, aromatic and robust in flavours.
It tasted similar to the traditional black sesame paste, in the form of an ice cream, filled with earthy and nutty flavours.
There is no sorbet on their menu and the only dairy-free option is the Coco lychee, made using coconut milk and lychee that resembled Nata de coco (coconut jelly-like substance).
As expected, the Coco Lychee could be a little sweet to my liking.
Sundays Ice Cream might have found a good location in Telok Kurau as there are few other ice cream bars in the vicinity, and they are opened every day, and till midnight during the weekends.
