The weather is so hot in Singapore, that having an ice cream in a huge, air-conditioned space is always a good idea.

Good news, Apiary has opened a new pop-up concept at Prinsep Street which is near to many arts institutions.

To find your way here, look out for Sin Thai Hin Building (the Apple map pin is not that correct for this) and Antler office (a short walk from Singapore Pools?).

Pronounced as “eh-pee-er-ee”, the brand will not be unfamiliar to ice cream lovers, with their first outlet located just diagonally opposite to Shake Shack at Neil Road.

There are also outlets at Ang Mo Kio and Joo Chiat.

Drinks wise, other than the usual coffee items of White ($5), Black ($5.50), Cold Brew ($7) and Espresso Tonic ($7), there are Homemade Chai ($8), Sodas ($7) and Classic Kombucha ($8) prepared in-houses using cascara which are the dried skin of coffee cherries.

There is a much leaner ice cream menu compared to their flagship outlet at Neil Road, with offering of 7 flavours.

Ice cream similarly priced at $4.20 for single scoop, $8 for double scoops and $11 for triple scoops.

While they are rotating, the usual flavours can include Blue Milk (milk, blue pea flower, salt), and Caramelised Strawberry.

Premium flavours (additional $0.50) include Apiary (Honey Ice Cream, Cocoa Nibs), Sicilian Pistachio, 73% Dark Chocolate, Hojicha (roasted Japanese tea), and Lychee & Yuzu Sorbet.

What I liked about the Apiary’s ice cream is their textures – smooth, creamy (yet not overly dense) and non-icy.

The Blue Milk was interesting and had an acquired taste, being salty instead, which helped to balance out the sweetness.

The Caramelised Strawberry was light in flavour but distinctive with strawberry seeds embedded within for the extra crunch.

Without being too milky, the overall taste was light and refreshing.

The signature Apiary had a delicate subtle honey flavour, and the cocoa nibs gave more varied texture within and a light chocolatey touch.

In terms of the waffles, while the classic brown butter waffles ($6) was moderately crispy (can be slightly more), the inside tasted more doughy and fluffy. However, I still enjoyed it for a slight salty butter tinge, which made it different from the usual.
