okay ice-cream, though not quite worth the hype (nor queue, nor the inconvenience of locating). this place is the latest stop on our conquer-ice-cream tour about this too-sunny island, which (unfortunately for it) resulted in a less favorable comparison.
it’s not bad by any means, but the ice cream gallery almost definitely has smoother ices (this here is a tad icy, slightly ironic given its name), flavours on the muted side, and portions small.
and for its hipster pretensions (small shop breaking the peace of an obscure old estate), it’s crazy packed: cramped inside and teenagers forming a noisy queue.
but, it is the cheapest scoop on our list-of-such, and worth a look-try if you’re in the area (the butterscotch was the best we tried that day).
p.s. we wanted a couple of waffles and a sit-down, but were informed of a half-hour-wait (at the very least). if you’re lucky enough to escape the queue, get those (and tell me about it!) – they looked fantastic.

I think they lost me when they told me they don’t give ice packs. And that the ice cream tub lasts 15 mins before melting. WHAT IF I LIVED IN JURONG D:
that sounds.. incredibly stupid. and really careless of their customers!
