Media Invite: Iscream @ Bedok North Ave 4

ice cream palor
In the recent months, beside cafes, gourmet ice cream parlors have mushroomed around Singapore island. Few weeks ago, I was invited to a media tasting with Ian, Amie, Mag and Shirley to Iscream @ Blk 89 Bedok North Ave 4.

89 Bedok North Ave 4
Although nested under a HDB block, Iscream has a beautiful deco that is comparable to any ice cream parlors in the shopping malls. It even has a cute vespa to welcome you.

Revolving ice cream display
As I entered Iscream, I was greeted by the revolving ice cream display. The first time I saw this display was during FHA last year. I was intrigued by the design of the display and how the revolving movement is suppose to allow for a more uniform temperature.
Social Media Plate ($15.90)
One of their signature is this 4 flavoured gelato with 4 tubes of different type of liquors.
Macarons ice cream
Soogle ($11.90)
Next, we have Soogle, 4 different flavours of gelato with macaron shells.
Wafflemania Platter ($15.90)
Wafflemania Platter is served with 2 mini scoops of ice cream, smores, mango and glazed banana.
Smores Stout Waffles ($11.90)
Another of their signature is the stout waffles and it is $5.90 if you are ordering it without the ice cream. For a scoop of ice cream, simply add $3, $4 if you prefer alcohol infused ice cream, to the bill. :) Waffles here are crispy on the outside and airy on the inside.
Man-go Mad Bingsu ($6.90)
Riding on the korean bingsu wave, there are 3 types of bingsu serve there. Man-go Mad Bingsu is served with mango gelato, mango, red bean and smores.
Black Bingsu ($6.90)
Black Bingsu is shaved ice served with gelato and red bean. The red bean is slightly more al dente and according to Iscream, this is how the korean likes it. However I prefer my red bean to be slightly softer and maybe a more thinly shaved ice. :)
Flossy ($6.90)
There are also a selection of sundae available such as Flossy which is served with cotton candy and Honey Scream which is served with honeycomb. 

Overall, Iscream has a wide selection of gelato items on the menu and a pleasant deco. However, the ice cream is slightly too sweet for my preference and I will not travel from from the west to the east for it again.
