Earle Swensen’s Gelato Bonanza

-Media Invitation-

I’ve got simple kids who gets easily excitable…
They were already grinning from ear to ear at the sound of ice cream.
And fixing their own banana split got them over the moon and staying there.

Hiroshi and Sophia had so much fun fixing their own banana split.
While James couldn’t care less… He just wanted to EAT it!

As we indulge in our banana split, we can’t help but notice that the ice cream were creamier and the flavors were more intense than before. Ahh, a closer look into the press kit reveals that Earle Swensen’s is offering a whole new gelato menu starting from January 2015. This simply means that all your ice cream from Earle Swensen’s gets an upgrade into atas Gelato!

With this much flavors to choose from, there are bound to be something for everyone!

I was suppose to be having Joy in a Jar. A beautiful concoctions of delectable chocolate brownie loaded with bananas, fresh strawberries layered with vanilla and thin mint ice cream. But, it got hijacked by Sophia who emptied the entire jar before returning it to me!! *sob sob*

Hiroshi had Molten Chocolate Lava Cake served with Cheese Cookie Gelato. Gooey Lava were oozing out of the Molten Lava Cake as we dug our spoons into it. Hiroshi wasn’t crazy about the Molten Chocolate Lava Cake, but he polished up the cheese cookie gelato instantaneously.

With everybody else’s sweet tooth well satisfied and kids bouncing off the walls, I finally get to eat my dessert in peace. I had a hard time deciding with Earle Swensen’s extensive Gelato dessert menu. After much deliberation, I finally settled with Celebrity Brownies served with Durian Gelato. Warm fudgy Brownies against the full flavored silky smooth durain gelato was extremely pleasurable for the taste buds. It does feels like I’ve died and gone to dessert heaven!

Swensen’s turns up the heat with all-American BBQ favourites

I love businesses that innovates.
Restaurants that excites their customers’ palate
by bringing new taste and flavors into their mundane menu.
Swensen’s seasonal menu of U.S. Southern BBQ favorites is just one fine example of it.

In any case, if you cannot remember what I’ve written in this blog post…

You only need to remember this;
Firecracker Soft Shell Prawns is under the die-die-must-try category!

These addictive prawns are lightly battered and coated with a unique blend of spices. They are served together with Swensen’s signature U.S. fries and fresh veggie sticks with pineapple BBQ and Tartar sauce dips on the side.

Like a hungry cowboy, Hiroshi polished his Cajun Chicken with Creamy Ranch Sauce in record time! Chicken was slow cooked with cajun herbs and spices into perfection and nicely complimented with the homemade creamy ranch sauce. It was served with wild rice, mesclun salad and BBQ beans.

The Grilled Snapper with Seafood Creole Sauce seemed like the unbeatable favorite amongst everybody from my table. This tenderly grilled saltwater snapper was generously drizzled with the chef’s special creamy creole sauce, served with buttered vegetables and mixed wild rice. Yums!

It’s getting hot, hot, hot. This Jalapeno BBQ Burger was stacked high with a juicy beef patty, flavorful jalapeno chunks and onion ring for the ultimate burger experience. It was served with steak cut fries lightly seasoned in cajun spices and mesclun salad.

Creamier Handcrafted Ice Cream and Coffee | Best Waffle Ice Cream EVER!

I’m not too sure if it is a good idea
to have your nieces and nephews following you on Social Media…

And this is WHY…

Recently, Hiroshi (@hellohiroshi) started following his aunt on instagram.
He faithfully stalked, liked and commented at every food picture that was posted.

Eventually the obligating aunt had no choice but to bring the kids out for an ice cream treat over pinky instagram promise.

In contrast of sleepy town at Blk 128 Toa Payoh Lorong 1,
the Ice Cream Parlor; Creamier was buzzing with activity.

We went on a Full Scale Indulgence with No Reservations.
Ultimate Combination of Double scoop Ice Cream served on 2 slices of freshly made waffles sitting on delicious Maple Syrup & Chocolate Sauce.
(Ice Cream Flavors we had: Butterscotch Almond, Mango Passion Fruit Sorbet, Cookies and Cream, Strawberry Sorbet, Thai Milk Tea, Pistachio, Green Tea)

The Belgian waffle is one of the best I had in a long long time! Crispy on the outside, but yet fluffy inside. Warm waffle with Delectable Creamy Ice Cream send joy down my rumbling tummy.

Every flavor tasted exquisite. It was hard picking out which was our favorite. I personally love Thai Milk Tea. Creamy with a tinge of tea fragrance.

On the overall, Creamier has far exceed our expectation in terms of food quality.

Extremely reasonable pricing.
My pockets were smiling, not because the bill was dirt cheap…
but because Auntie Ivy was BUYING! 🙂
(Waffle with ice cream cost $8.50. Extra scoop of ice cream is $2.50 each.
There is an additional charge of $0.80/scoop for Premium ice cream.)

It is a cozy environment, but be prepared to eat your ice cream Elbow to Elbow or sit Butt to Butt because it get incredibly crowded during peak hours!

Thank you Auntie Ivy for that AWESOME Ice Cream Treat.
I believed Hiroshi has also liked your instagram photo of the Standing Sushi Bar.
Heeheehee… Now you know why having nieces and nephews following you on social media ain’t such a good idea afterall right?!?!?
