Food haven at Upper Thomson Road

Upper Thomson Road has been pretty happening these days. Ice cream stalls are popping out like no one’s business much to my delight! Muahaha I am only a few bus stops away from my earl grey ice cream.

Somehow I can’t decide which I like more.. Salted Caramel’s version was mild and thus soothing, while Udders’s was strong like TWG tea. Another winner was Udder’s alcoholic Bailey’s & Bourbon!

Other things I like include The Prata House, Meng Kitchen’s minced meat noodles (a few stalls down) and prawn noodles at Long House. La Petit Cuisine is nice too if you like to have some French food that’s quite affordable.

I have a special liking for Dino Cake House & Cafe too. Maybe it’s the old good times, or the fact that the fried rice ($4.80) still tastes the way it did 10 years ago. It is a simple dish that is made special by its fragrant balacan chilli and thin shreds of cucumber.

It’s always nice to go back to the traditional desserts sometimes. Nothing too fancy or sweet. Just good old dessert. We went to try a few desserts that day and I thought the rum cake roll ($2.50) was pretty unique. It looks like a traditional cake roll with the cream, cake and peanuts, but it has a piece of chocolate in the middle. Wish we could taste more of the rum though!

The bite-sized apple crumbles ($1) were so cute! As tiny as they were, they had plenty of crumbly toppings and chunks of apples inside. They were not too sweet, so I would have definitely taken a few more if I wasn’t stuffed.

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!

Cold Stone Creamery is not your usual ice cream parlour. You can choose the flavours and toppings you want, or try one of their Signature Creations. Here are the three we tried:

  • Founders’ Favourite: Sweet cream ice cream, pecans, brownie, fudge and caramel
  • Peanut Butter Cup Perfection: Chocolate ice cream, peanut butter, REESE’S peanut butter cup and fudge
  • Banana Caramel Crunch: French vanilla ice cream, roasted almonds, banana and caramel

Watch them mix in the different ingredients before tossing your ice cream in the air and catching it with a cup. A little gimmicky but I assure you that the ice cream taste great in their freshly made molten state that can’t be replicated when it is pre-made. I would also request them to go easy on the caramel so that it’s not too sinfully sweet. 😉

PS: The plain waffle tastes much better than the chocolate coated waffle.
