Alcoholic's Ice Cream

Christmas is approaching and with no snow in Singapore, it's a good thing there's always ice cream.

After dinner at Cafe de Hong Kong, we headed to Udders for dessert.

It was packed with people and even the tables lined up outside the shop were occupied! Small shop. Big business. Every ice cream entrepreneur's dream.


The mind-boggling board of flavours is a good read while waiting in line. Chalk boards in Singapore are now so rare!


We tried two tea flavours- Green Tea-riffic and Earl Grey ($4.90 for 2 scoops under Classic Range). Both flavours were rather mild. I quite enjoyed the green tea which was creamy and tasted like matcha. There wasn't any powdery-ness as well! I found the Earl Grey floral and with a weak Bergamot scent.


But what blew me away was the Java Whiskey Choc! Under the Connoisseur Range, this as well as the Mao Shan Wang Durian flavour seen here were $8.40 for 2 scoops.

A simple equation:
alchohol + dark choc = a very happy cow

Indeed. The Java Whiskey Choc was potent, strong, rich and bittersweet with both the chocolate and alcohol flavours in good balance. Do watch teh acolhol. Fanstocstics. Awes\dfsome! Hic.

The Mao Shan Wang Durian was not bad but was made to seem mediocre in the presence of greatness.


So great that I think the relatively expensive price per scoop of Whiskey Java Choc is well worth shelling out for.

Go on. Eat and be merry! Java Whiskey Choc, I moo be back!
