Ice Cream parlour is found at every corner of Singapore. In Tampines alone, there are a handful. One of which we visited is Ice Cream Skool. Not so how the name come from but it gave me a feel of school and cool. It is started by 2 ladies who loves their ice cream. I suppose the shop will satisfy their craving any time.
The interior and facade isn’t impressive. One would quickly classified it as the HDB look kind of shop. At Ice Cream Skool, they don’t only serve as a retail but they offer catering too.
Since Ice Cream is the focus let’s zoom in to the desserts first. Like all other ice cream parlour, Ice Cream Skool too, offers waffle and various flavours of ice cream. Buttermilk Waffle ($3.50), Double Choc Waffle ($4.20) and for the Matcha fan, there is the Matcha Waffle ($3.80). Top it up with ice cream, Mini ($2), Single scoop ($3), Double ($5.80) and Triple ($8.40). Add $0.50 for each toppings if desire.
The waffle in general is dense with crispy exterior and flavourful. We adore the matcha as it has a good scent, though we wouldn’t mind if it is stronger. While the ice cream is light in creaminess. We have the Mango Yoghurt, Peppermint Choc, Mao Shan Wang, Chocolate, Cookies and Cream and can’t remember the last flavour.
If you are looking for food, there are 3 pasta to choose from Creamy Mushrooms Pasta ($9.90) and Spicy Tom Yum Pasta ($10.90) are the 2 we tried. We love the latter as the former was a little too flat. The spice might be a little too much for a handful of diners. But I am sure most could tolerate it. In addition, the pasta is a little too soft. The third pasta that we did not try was the Fried Chicken Pasta ($9.90).
If diners prefer to have lightbites, turn to Chicken-in-a-waffle ($4.90). This waffle was rather fluffy and lightly crispy with fried chicken sandwiched in between the waffle. It would be fabulous if there were more maple syrup.
Soup & Bread ($3.20) was good for one. The soup was creamy with lightly mushroom-flavoured. We love the garlic bread more than the soup though. Third lightbite that was unavailable that day was the Cheese Sausage Bun ($3.90).
At Ice Cream Skool, they too offer a range of drinks with the usual tea and coffee. A pity, they don’t have my favourite Cappuccino on the menu, hence I opted Cafe Latte ($3.90). The coffee was a little too milky but considering the price, it was more than decent. It was nutty, low acidity with medium to full body.
One of the drinks Ice Cream Skool highly recommended was the Milkshake ($4.90 for Regular / $6.90 for Large). This is a highly customised drink, whereby diner could choose up to 2 flavours. The flavour was highly concentrated.
Other ice drinks with a scoop of vanilla ice cream are also available. We tried the Ice Matcha ($5.90) and Ice Chocolate ($5.90). At such wallet friendly price, we couldn’t complain.
We thought Ice Cream Skool offers decent savoury food items and above average desserts great for especially the kids in the area.
