(IScream had since ceased operations.)
Iscream is the newest addition to the Fengshan neighbourhood, located within walking distance from the famous Bedok 85 Food Centre. An ice-cream parlour under the Arteastiq umbrella, do not expect the expected here at Iscream.
A Vespa greets you outside the door, along with the brightly-lit signage placed on the left of the store. Walk in and you will find a giant circular tub where all the available flavours are on display, and that is where all the fun starts. Watch the tub rotate as you test the various flavours that they offer.
(Soogle – Red Date Tea, Nuts Over Bananas, Durian, Pulot Hitam)
One of the signature items sold here would be the Social Media plate, which was unfortunately available as they had not obtained their liquor license yet. We got the other signature item instead which was the Soogle. A fusion of “Scream” and “Google”, it is four scoops of ice-cream flavours of your choice sandwiched between macaron shells. We got ourselves the Red Date Tea, Durian, Pulot Hitam and Nuts over Bananas flavours.
(Nuts Over Bananas)
Nuts over Bananas was sweet as it tasted of caramalised bananas with a hint of walnuts. Bits of walnuts could also be detected to provide another form of texture to this flavour. We quite liked the flavour, as well as the macaron shells that were very chewy after soaking up the ice-cream.
We could not really tell which type of durian was used for their Durian flavour, but it tasted really natural. Durian junkies will definitely love this for the distinct flavour of the king of fruits!
Pulot Hitam was the least exciting flavour of the lot. It was barely sweet, and the coconut milk flavour was also too light on the palate. We did enjoy the grains of Pulot Hitam which not only gave a nice bite, but also a slight flavour boost as well.
(Red Date Tea)
Red Date Tea was my favourite, probably due to heavy aroma of tea in it. Fans of matcha-flavoured or other tea-flavoured ice-creams will find this flavour appealing.
Apart from the Soogle and Social Plate, Iscream also sells ice-cream with waffles and Korean-styled ice-creams. For regular scoops, they charge by weight, and various condiments such as nuts are available to buy in packs situated in front of the counter. Beverages include coffee, and teas from Arteastique are also available. For those who wants to experience a fresh concept, Iscream is a place that you should never miss!
