(An infamous turkish ice cream stall can be found in Clark Quay at night. The vendor has a very engaging way of selling the ice cream, armed by the chiming, regaling, and other funny antics regardless of the patrons. By the way, she did not really take home that huge serving and hairdress. Those were part of the marketing.)
There must be an equation to everything. As I went into a no pork diet and fairly succeed in trimming my chocolate consumption, a new fancy was born. (Hey, don’t be deceived. I’m just preparing to pig out in December. But the nicest thing is the discovery that while it is indeed difficult to part from the delicious, it is not impossible at all.) In the past, I only got a zero to low desire for ice cream, but I am (unfortunately) now an eager eater. I saw it coming since my addiction for that ice cream in Singapore.
While we frequented the Clark Quay area, we did not get to try the turkish ice cream. The queue was consistently unbeatable. Whether it is heavenly delicious or not, I think that in a way, a customer pays for the entire experience of being entertained while getting his order and photographed with the Ice Cream Man. On the other hand, the usisera and paparazzi in us were satisfied as well.
Our fancy kicked off when we tried the (Japanese) hokkaido ice cream in The Central (mall). I liked it because it is not too sweet. But there was this other ice cream that charmed us.
The in-cart Walls’ SGD 1-dollar ice cream being sold was addictive. I consumed at least two flavors, durian ice cream as my favorite. Everyday.
(Walls’ version comes next to the homemade durian ice cream I tried in Polomolok, South Cotabato. I like it sandwiched by wafers or tasty. This actually was my number 1 must-eat in Singapore, not the chili crabs.)
For some reasons, buying and eating it felt like being home. I recalled those days when we would wait for Manong Sorbetero for our dosage of dirty ice cream as spread in the monay or pandesal.

For a not-so-sweet ice cream here, have you tried Sumo Sushi’s grean tea and red bean flavors?
Ah yes, it was in Polomolok that I had my first taste of durian ice cream!
OMG! Ice cream galore!
wherever you go – you always pay for the entire ambience and experience. i would love to try some ice cream now even though it’s cold and raining.
i think that ice cream is purely singapore…
waaaaa i want ice cream and the durian flavor too. yum yum
you know, there’s something utterly charming about our own Mamang Sorbetero. It’s probably their kindness and familiarity to kids that make us want to buy whenever we see them around, with their bells jingling. =)
You know what? Even though I lived in Singapore for a few years and have visited the Lion City several times, I’ve never tasted those Walls ice cream! It’s because an ice cream sandwich doesn’t appeal to me. I like my ice cream in scoops or on a cone not in sandwich form. I don’t like soggy bread nor wafers 😀
“I recalled those days when we would wait for Manong Sorbetero for our dosage of dirty ice cream as spread in the monay or pandesal.”
awwww… i miss those days too. we always wait for that dirty ice cream around 4 in the afternoon. tapos, we ask manong ice cream to stay for a while because 1 scoop/order is not enough for each if us. 🙂
Eh di wala rin. You cut back on chocolate and pork pero ice cream ka naman ngayon. Zero calorie loss.
i am addicted to ice cream that even if im in baguio i crave for it. and yes the one in singapore i wish there’s an equivalent in manila. i love that. i need to return to singapore for that.
hmmm…i still buy some ice cream here and spread it on dinner rolls or pandesal if i’m lucky at the pinoy store.
durian ice cream? uhmm…hindi ako kumakain ng durian but i think kailangan ko matikman yang ice cream na yan. tikim lang! hehehe
give me ice cream anytime!
…i’ve tried a local brand of atis flavored ice cream but durian, not yet.
yay namiss ko naman bigla ang wafer ice cream ng sg!
