Fans of Creamier’s quality handcrafted ice cream, made in small batches in onsite kitchen, can now head to Creamier East Coast. The new cafe in Katong is a great destination for delicious freshly made ice cream and waffles.
Toa Payoh to Katong
The homegrown ice cream artisan first opened its doors in heartland Toa Payoh in 2011. Today, it has outlets in Gillam Barracks, Tiong Bahru and Northshore. Creamier East Coast is located in a shophouse near the junction of Jago Lane and East Coast Road, just opposite the popular cafe The Neptune.
Creamier East Coast took over the premises previously occupied by Forty Hands. They kept the beautiful retro floor tiles and gave the place the typical Creamier chic industrial look. The cafe in Katong looks very similar to Creamier Tiong Bahru.
Creamier East Coast
Creamier East Coast offers ice cream and waffles and hot and cold beverages. Single-scoop ice cream starts at $4.30. Waffles with a single scoop of ice cream is $10.30.
The flavours of ice cream and sorbet available will vary. When we visited, the available flavours included Ruby Orange Chocolate, Osmanthus Lychee Sorbet, Japanese Green Tea, Earl Grey Lavender, Butterscotch Almond and Blue Pea Vanilla.
Coffee & Ice Cream at Creamier
We visited Creamier East Coast and had a single scoop of Sea Salt Gula Melaka and Waffles with a scoop of Salty Lychee Sorbet. Our choice must have been subconsciously influenced by the “Sea Salt” and “Salty” in the names of the ice cream – as if the salt would somehow mitigate the effect of sugar consumption. As an extra measure in moderating our calories intake, we had our hot coffee black – without added cream or sugar.
Sea Salt Gula Melaka is the iconic Creamier ice cream flavour. The ice cream churned using sweet palm sugar (gula melaka) and hand-harvested sea salt was rich, indulgent and creamy. It had caramel-like sweetness with a subtle savoury contrast.
Salty Lychee Sorbet was made with lychees and Okinawa sea salt. It had a unique flavour profile. The fruity sorbet had a hint of saltiness that helped to enhance the sweetness of the lychees. It was very refreshing and enjoyable.
The waffles were buttery and aromatic with the standard crisp exterior and a soft interior. Good enough to eat on its own – even more delectable with a dash of syrup; and taken to another level when enjoyed with the lychee sorbet.
Top Spot for Waffles & Ice Cream
There are now many good cafes along East Coast Road. They compete for business but each also has its own niche. You can find a cafe that specialises in chai, or one for pastry and one that serves great coffee. If we want great waffles and ice cream, then Creamier East Coast will be our preferred destination.
