Jalan Selaseh is one of those areas that seem untouched over time, with its unique variety of eateries and shops that have stood the test of time.
Bing Qi Lin is the newest kid on the block here. Serving ice-cream to the neighbourhood, it offers quite a variety of flavours in their freezer. Currently they serve scoops only in cups and cones, but a look at the menu revealed that they do intend to serve waffles soon. Interestingly Bing Qi Lin also supplies their ice-cream to Maple & Market, which they serve alongside their waffles.
(Pistachio and Milk & Honey)
We tried out several flavours but eventually settled for the Pistachio and Milk & Honey flavours. The ice-cream here are smooth and creamy, but they are less milky in their taste so expect stronger flavours overall. Pistachio was evident with its nutty flavour, and filled with sprinkles of Pistachio for a crunch. My favourite though was the Milk & Honey; a harmonious marriage of light flavours. While being milky, the ice-cream was sweetened solely from the honey, which is what makes this flavour so soothing. Other flavours I tried included the After Eight (Mint-based with Chocolate Chips) and the Kyoto Matcha, of which I found interesting because it focused on the bitterness of Matcha instead of sweetening it as ice-cream.
While this in fact is not too convenient a location to head to for ice-cream, it definitely serves the neighbourhood pretty well. During our visit there, we saw a group of customers taking away a few pints of ice-cream even during a rainy day. Bing Qi Lin might be just an ice-cream parlour, but it does certainly adds some colour to this sleepy neighbourhood.
