Calling all residents of Tampines (and beyond)! If you haven’t already heard, delato Handcrafted Ice Cream is an up-and-coming dessert spot everyone seems to be talking about.
It may look just like your typical neighbourhood ice cream parlour, with its limited seating, clean furnishings, and location (it is sandwiched in between a laundromat and hair salon at the foot of a HDB block), but the menu is one that stands out from the rest.
Take your pick from the rather unique selection of handcrafted Silcilian-style gelato (from S$4.20 per scoop) in fun seasonal flavours like Caramelized Banana Prata, Maple Walnut Pie, Salted Oreo, and a locally-inspired Kopi Toast. These are joined by the usual suspects like Thai Milk Tea, Matcha, and Vanilla Pod, all of which are freshly churned on a regular basis.
Plant-based folk have not been forgotten, as vegan-friendly options like Pink Guava Berries, Mango Basil, and Cendol Jackfruit are also served here. Another thing to note is that delato refrains from using any pork, lard, or alcohol in their dessert offerings.
There are 12 gelato flavours on rotation at any given time, so you can look forward to new, limited-edition flavour every time you visit.
You can choose to pair your ice cream with a Charcoal Cone (S$1.20) or delato’s signature Matcha Mochi Waffles (S$7), which are studded with chewy mochi bits. Feel free to also jazz things up with toppings (S$0.50) like rice crispy puffs, biscoff crumbs, and maple syrup.
Alternatively, order a Duo Waffle (S$7.50), comprising half an original waffle and half a matcha mochi waffle, if you want to have the best of both worlds.
Beverages include speciality espresso-based coffees, Chocolate, and Matcha Latte (from S$4.50), but I’ve got my eye on the Maple Latte (from S$5), which sounds perfect for easing into the year-end “fall” vibes.
delato opens till 1am from Friday to Sunday, so why not head down for a late post-dinner dessert fix with your pals?
