Rollney specialises in handcrafted Kürtőskalács or Kurtos Roll for short, a delectable Hungarian dessert with its roots in Transylvania, Romania, that are worth sinking your teeth into.
The cylindrical-shaped Kurtos Rolls are made from strips of fluffy yeasted dough that are wrappd around a cone-shaped baking spit, before being roasted till golden brown.
They have a crisp bread-like exterior and a hollow centre resembling a hot chimney, which is why they’re also called chimney cakes.
If you are new to the brand, look no further than the Kurtos Ice Cream (S$5 for one topping, S$5.50 for two toppings), Kurtos Roll paired with soft serve and your choice of toppings. There are only two soft serve flavours to choose from at the time of writing: low fat Hokkaido Milk and Royal Chocolate.
First, choose your Kurtos (they’ve got Original, Chocolate, and Cinnamon), followed by your ice cream, and then the toppings.
There are over 20 options to choose from, including fruits, crunches, and sauces. Think oreo crumbs, orange marmalade cookies, strawberry chunks, Japanese matcha, creamy butterscotch, cappuccino sauce, and so much more!
We eventually opted for Hokkaido Milk soft serve on an original Kurtos with taro sauce (hello, taro fans) and brown rice coconut cereal cookies, as well as Royal Chocolate with matcha crumble and a rich, surprisingly legit-tasting pistachio sauce on a cinnamon Kurtos.
I liked the Royal Chocolate a lot more than the Hokkaido Milk, as it was decadent, without being too sweet or cloying, and paired wonderfully with the pistachio and bittersweet matcha.
You can also choose to enjoy both the Kurtos and ice cream on their own if you prefer something lighter.
As someone who has more of a “savoury tooth”, I was a lot more eager to try the Savoury Kurtos Rolls (S$5.50), that come in three flavours. Unlike the regular Kurtos, the savoury version boasts an addictive cheesy crust that goes oh-so well with the fillings.
I quite liked the Hot Chilli Chicken, composed of spicy chicken salad served chilled (contrary to its name), while my colleague preferred the Plant-based Spam with a choice of Thai Sweet Chilli Sauce or BBQ Sauce.
Wash everything down with an icy Frappe in enticing flavours like Cookies & Cream (S$6.50) and Lotus Heaven (S$7), topped with biscoff crumbs.
Once again, taro fanatics can go for the Taro (S$6.50), which was smooth, sweet and really creamy, reminscent of yam-flavoured Potong ice cream.
Although the menu at Rollney Singapore is not as comprehensive as its Malaysian counterpart, you can look forward to new and exciting ice cream flavours in the (hopefully) near future.
Do note that all ingredients used at Rollney Singapore are halal, but plans to apply for halal certification are in the works, so stay tuned!
