Singapore: Ice cream

After our amazing seafood dinner we decided to walk back to our hotel… so we strolled along Robinson and then Clarke Quay. It was a warm evening and we noticed that people were queuing up at little stalls. Hawkers were selling different snacks.

We walked closer and noticed that they were selling ice cream sandwiches, freshly made. Some actually made proper sandwiches, i.e. using toast bread! But I’m not a fan of soggy bread (that’s the German genes in me) and decided to walk over to the old men with the waffles.

He constructed each individual ice cream sandwich very carefully – it was an artwork. The queue was huge, but then the ice cream was cheap too… so we just stood there for 20 minutes, chatting and debating which flavour to go for. In the end mango and peppermint (not together! separate!) won.

The old men carefully assembled the ice, cutting a nice junk of sweet ice cream and carefully placing two waffles at either end – a yummy sandwich to end a very busy day, visiting several the Biennale sites and eating a huge portion of salted egg crab!
