With the increasing trend of diners frequenting ice cream parlours after their main meals, ice cream parlours themselves have surged too. Or at least, they’ve appeared more apparent to the general public. Well, Economics students would tell you, with demand comes supply.
The most recent set-up that has come into the limelight is Salted Caramel. Its secluded locality is solely to be blamed for me to take so long to patronise this frozen dessert joint. Established at the Upper Thomson Road neighbourhood, it is asking too much of me to reach there. Unless well, for this instance, a car is involved.
We tried quite a handful of flavours, ranging from Nutella, to Stout and Chocolate, to Earl Grey Ice Cream. Of course, we had its, we supposed, signature flavour – Salted Caramel. I must say, I am a fan of how individual flavours taste. I can imagine one enjoying the ice cream with relish.
But, because we’ve all had so many different ice creams from different parlours, from Andersen’s to Haagen Dazs, from The Daily Scoop to Ice Cream Chef – it is easy to relate and compare which has a better taste. For me, Salted Caramel is on the losing end. Not only is their location not ideal, the ice cream isn’t too.
There are two parts to ice cream.
First – its flavour.
Second – how heavy and how long it lingers in your mouth.
Salted Caramel’s ice cream doesn’t have this density to them, making the taste of the ice cream easily forgettable. To know exactly what I mean, try a scoop of Andersen’s and a scoop of Salted Caramel’s.
Its price is reasonable though.
1 scoop – $3
2 scoops – $5
3 sccops – $7
Service is also on the no-complains side.
Would I go back again? Probably not, unless my dining partners want to try it. Moreover, Udders is just housed beside them.
