Salted Caramel has got to be one of my new favorite ice cream parlors in Singapore! Located in the heart of Upper Thomson, this artisanal ice cream boutique was set up by an enterprising young lady with the support of her friends and family, and is named after her favorite ice cream flavor – salted caramel! You can read more about her inspiring story here!
The interior is clean and white with small touches of color to add in an element of fun. Along with the friendly staff, Salted Caramel feels like a warm, welcoming place to enjoy your sweet treats.
We arrived on a Friday night around 8pm and managed to snag a cosy spot at the corner. It was pretty crowded when we got there, and I believe the human traffic here can get pretty heavy. Probably not somewhere to have a long, chill-out sesh with your girlfriends!
Aside from desserts, Salted Caramel also offers a decent range of drinks and coffee. They have a good variety of novel ice cream flavors such as Horlicks Tim Tam and Avocado, as well as the classics like Vanilla and Strawberry. The obliging staff will be more than happy to let you sample as many flavors as you like! They also offer you a choice of maple syrup or chocolate sauce to drizzle over your waffles. Yum!
The Homemade Waffle(S$3.50) was crisp on the outside, yet light and fluffy on the inside. Definitely one of my favorites in a long time. Served warm and topped with a double scoop(S$5) of Salted Caramel and Earl Grey ice cream, this practically got me rolling in dessert heaven.
I was completely hooked on their signature Salted Caramel flavor, which was salty and sweet in equal measure. Perfect for me who is a sucker for all things sweet and salty. Earl Grey was also true to its flavor, and tasted pleasantly deep and intense. Also, the ice cream texture wasn’t too dense or airy. Overall, a dessert that could turn any bad day into a better one!
To sum up, Salted Caramel is a place I would visit for a good waffle fix. I’m pretty stoked to try their other interesting ice-cream flavors, as well as the coffee. So the next time you happen to be in the Upper Thomson area, don’t be afraid to give this place a go!
