When in Singapore, it’s easy to go for a stroll by the beach. A gentle breeze, catching the sunset and strolling hand-in-hand along the beach quite literally spells ‘love is in the air’. Just ahead of Valentine’s Day, I thought of sharing my experience of an ice cream stall that I chanced upon at ECP. And I am glad I did! Opened in ECP (next to Cheers / Burger King) was an illuminated kiosk that was labeled Kala Thai Coconut Ice cream. It had banners stuck on it which indicated that it sold fresh coconut ice cream and bottled coconut juices. We decided to stop by and grab a scoop of this natural ice cream.
There was only one thing to order – the coconut ice cream. We informed the kiosk owner that we wanted one cup of ice cream. Little did we know that it would be served in a smooth coconut shell that looked so pretty. The owner asked us to choose our toppings. At this point, I was intrigued as I really did not expect customized offerings at a kiosk. This ice cream came with unique offerings – corn, peanuts, water chestnuts, and some sort of plum seeds. To top all of that was a delicious dollop of Gula Melaka (jaggery juice). I was apprehensive about all these flavours together but then when I took the first bite, I realized it was totally delicious! Such smooth coconut ice cream with no compromise on freshness is a rare find. The ice cream was not overly sweet, and had great bite from the toppings. The fresh coconut on the sides of the cup was so tender that it could be scraped off with a plastic spoon.
During the discussion with the owner, we got to know that it is seasonal. This time they will be here till April. The owner was very friendly and shared how the ice cream is freshly imported from Thailand. Its also easy to keep updated via their FB page where they announce when they put up a kiosk with intermittent gaps in between. So do give them a try this season. Take a lovely walk along the beach, watch the sun set and have your heart’s content of this uniquely exotic Thai dessert because some things are priceless 🙂 Keep smiling and love your loved ones!
