I had high hope for this ice cream parlour because their photos of their ice creams & waffles kept appearing on my Instagram feed. I knew if I wanted to come down, it must not be one of those weekends or after dinner timing. I don’t like to fight my way or share my table space. So I came on a Wednesday afternoon, hoping there’ll be less of a crowd.
To my dismay, the place was packed as if everyone have no school and work! That’s how we ended up here before coming back Creamier praying hard we could find a table towards dinner timing. We tried various flavours before confirming our orders just like we always do at other shops. Pistachio and Mango Passionfruit were my preference while my partner liked the Sea Salt Gula Melaka. Something more unusual compared to the common salty caramel.
We paid 11 bucks for two flavours ($5.00) and waffles ($6.00), nicely executed with the chocolate-honey drizzling. I think their craftsmanship deserves the media hype but I wasn’t comfortable sitting by my half-heartedly wiped table still with ice cream stains and food scraps. There were fingerprints all over the display counter and their drinking cups weren’t thoroughly washed. (The cups we used had stains all over it.) Sorry but I like my cafes clean.
Perhaps their sister shop, Sunday Folks at Holland Village and Ghim Moh fare better. Creamier is a little out of the way for me but for the students of CHIJ Secondary School, I believe this is everyone’s favourite after school treat.
