One rainy December afternoon, after some dim sum for lunch at Peach Garden, I was left wondering what else I could do as my Xmas trip back to Singapore was winding down. Rather muggy, a quick cool down was probably a good idea so ice-cream was suggested.
Udders is an ice-cream chain that has been mushrooming around Singapore. As far as I know, there’s one in Upper Thomson and another at Novena (at the side of United Sq), with other outlets scattered across the island. Within the Upper Thomson area, there appears to be an on-going ice-cream war between Udders, Scoopz and Salted Caramel. Of the three, I have to declare my preference for Salted Caramel, although Scoopz comes a close second. Udders ice-cream is good, but there is that feeling of commercialism to the entity, something that might not hold up for an area that is community-inclined.
Sometimes all you want is a nice unadulterated ice cream, but Udders offers you the works, including alcoholic ice cream such as rum rum raisin (‘coz it’s double the dose), Guiness, Tiramisu and Lychee Martini. Prices range for a cheapish $3.40 for a single scoup of the classic flavours to $8.90 for a double serve of the ‘connoisseur’ flavours.
I ended up getting a triple scoop sundae that was supposed to be modified from the $12.50 ‘Boozy Mud-slide’ option you’ll find in their menu. Presentation-wise, it’s not much, very simple, whack in the 3 scoops, bit of choc sauce, cream on top (really forgot to say no to this), and a wafer roll. That rainy afternoon, with no one in the shop, my friend and I were still served the wrong ice-cream combinations in our sundaes.. you might say 2 out of 3 ain’t bad, oh but it is in my book.
