Located directly opposite Eunos MRT station, The Last Scoop is an ice cream cafe that has both indoors and alfresco seating area.
Plus point: it is opened till 1am daily (except Mondays).
There is an increasing number of ice cream shops opening in the heartlands over the past years.
These include Overscoop at Yishun, Tucela Gelato at Boon Keng, Wonders at Ang Mo Kio, and Cold Flings at Sengkang – just to name a few.
The space is primarily decked white, grey and black, with neon lights hanging on the walls and ceiling.
Ice cream is priced at $3.90 for a single scoop, $7.50 for double scoops and additional $1 for premium flavours.
12 flavours are available, with classic ones such as Blue Vanilla, Strawberry Tart, Nutella Speculoos.
Premium ones include Cream Cheese, Baileys’ & Cookies, Matcha and Open Sesame.
Interesting flavours include Movie Night (sweet buttered popcorn), Wizard’s Brew (Earl Grey with Thyme and Cinnamon), Wang Zai Niu Tai (Wang Wang Milk), and Pei Pa Gao (Nin Jiom Pei Pa Koa) – uncommon in other ice cream shops.
Presentation-wise, each scoop of ice cream comes with different toppings, similar to the ones I first tried at Hay Gelato.
I had the Strawberry Tart which has distinctive citrus notes due to the balsamic vinegar added.
The ice cream was also smooth and non-icy, pretty refreshing for a hot day.
Sprinkled with Lotus Biscoff to mimic the flavour of a tart, I wished that there was more malty biscuits in it to balance off the strong citrus notes.
The Blue Vanilla comes in the form of a bright baby blue colour, with a vanilla taste, topped with mini marshmallows that resembled a Paddlepop ice cream.
Diners can choose to pair their ice cream with Cone ($1) or Waffle ($5.50).
3 different spices are added to the waffle batter, with distinctive aromatic scent of Thyme, Cardamom and Cinnamon.
The botanical flavours was interesting, with a nice crispy texture on the surface, and a firmer texture on the inside.
Instead of serving coffee from Espresso machines, drip coffee is used here, with the usual variations of Black ($4.50) and Latte ($5.50) with Vanilla, Honey Cream, Peanut Butter, Berry Parfait and Chai.
Non- coffee drinks include Tea Pot ($5.90) from Gryphon Tea Company, Soda ($5.90), Cider ($12.90) or Juice ($4.90).
Opened till 1am daily (except Mondays), The Last Scoop can be an ideal dessert spot for a supper gathering at this part of Sims Avenue.
