A comforting bowl of plain ol’ ice cream can set a day right, but sometimes, we want something completely over-the-top to reward ourselves for a hard day of work. If you find yourself having a monstrosity of an appetite for all things sweet, visit Softhaus, a new ice cream bar that serves up 16 unique flavours with over 20 toppings.
Softhaus in Great World
But before we dive in, it is to note that Softhaus isn’t just any run-off-the-mill ice cream parlour. Founded by Janice Wong, a celebrated dessert chef and also the owner of the famous 2am: dessert bar, the ice cream flavours here took half a year of research and development before being launched.
Since ice cream should be a universal treat, flavours include four sorbets, six keto-friendly, and five vegan-friendly options, so there’s something for everyone.
There are fruity choices such as the Strawberry Sorbet and Yuzu Sorbet, and there’s also the Avocado banana — a heavenly combination of a creamy mouthfeel with subtly sweet notes.
For the people who’d like to play it safe, Softhaus offers the usual options such as Cookies & Cream, Madagascar Vanilla Bean, and Hazelnut too.
Each scoop of ice cream costs S$6 or S$7, depending on the flavour you choose. As much as you’d like to load on the ice cream, there’s a maximum of three scoops in a single order.
However, you can choose to have your treat in a cup, or enjoy it on a Cone (S$1) or a Waffle Bowl (S$1.50) for extra indulgence.
Once you’ve chosen your desired flavour, head on to the toppings section. Glass jars and towers hold a myriad of candy choices, guaranteed to excite even the adults.
Over 20 choices are available, with offerings such as Popcorn (S$0.50), Iced Gem Biscuits (S$0.50), Cotton Candy (S$1), and even the raved Speculoos (S$0.50). Choose wisely, though. You’re only allowed to pile up a maximum of three toppings!
Each topping is then meticulously arranged by hand, so this is one scoop that’ll probably end up on the gram’.
Located at Basement One of the newly revamped Great World, Softhaus is a whimsical ice cream bar that’s hard to miss. Though only takeaways are available, they’re working on a sit-in concept that’ll allow all Singaporeans to sit back and enjoy their cup of happiness once the pandemic cases dwindle.
