5 The Moments, Tanjong Pagar Road


5 The Moments along Tanjong Pagar Road breaks the momentum of a street lined with salivating smells of Korean BBQ and fried chicken. The colourful outlook and gelato signage were screaming out to me on a hot and sunny afternoon.

The interior is decorated with vintage items which keeps you occupied while you wait for your food.

They have a variety of waffles with ice cream (approx $11) starting with the all familiar buttermilk as your safest bet, to red velvet if you’re feeling more adventurous. They also have lava cakes in either chocolate or matcha flavour. If you don’t feel like having sweet stuff, they do have light bites (approx $9) such as Korean Fried Chicken. Heh but seriously who will order fried chicken here when there are established fried chicken eateries just next door?
Matcha waffles with ferrero rocher ice cream.

Buttermilk waffles with salted caramel ice cream.

The waffles, while crispy, were too thin. I’m the kind that will cut according to the waffle lines into little squares before scooping a spoonful of ice cream into those little squares before gulping them down. Sadly for me, the waffle squares didn’t hold up after being cut.

The salted caramel ice cream was rather weak too. I’ve tried many salted caramel ice creams, and this is one of the weaker ones. The taste and texture really didn’t impress. The ferrero rocher was all right.

On a whole, the waffle with ice cream wasn’t worth it. They also don’t serve water and do not provide serviettes. Put it bluntly, it’s homemade food at restaurant prices. I’ll leave it to you to be the judge if you ever drop by.

P/S: Stop trying to figure it out. “5 The Moments” stands for “Find The Moments”.

Merely Ice Cream, Sunshine Plaza


Getting lost in Singapore has its merits! Look what I chanced upon — Merely Ice Cream at Sunshine Plaza! Best thing about it? It’s a handmade ice cream shop! Located just a road across Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, I reckon this is the only ice cream shop located near town that handmakes their ice creams!


Salted butterscotch. $3.30 for a single scoop.

It was a bit too sweet for my liking, but I can’t complain much since afterall, it’s butterscotch flavoured! I would want to try the pandan ice cream the next time I’m there. Saw bits of pandan cake in the ice cream; am eager to find out how it tastes like!

The ice cream was filled to the brim. My money was worth it! Plus, I think because it’s opposite NAFA, you would enjoy looking at the doodles that were placed under the glass pane on the table by their customers. I definitely enjoyed looking at the many designs of namecards that were left behind, and I was awed to see so many local talents (videographer, editor, visual arts…).

I would visit again!
