Singapore has a new obsession and it comes in the form of decadent, melt-in-your-mouth rolls upon rolls of sweet ice cream. 365 days of hot, humid weather makes this icy joy the perfect treat for expats, according to OpenRice, Singapore.
We have our Thai neighbours to thank for this new wave of street food, now gaining popularity with the Singaporeans—especially in the wake of abundant Ramadan Bazaars.
Here’s 5 top ice cream roll pit stops to head on over to today, by OpenRice:
1. Happy Rollies

After gaining fame from its first stint at Geylang Serai Ramadan Bazaar, Happy Rollies continues its pop-ups in other pasar malams around the island with new-turned-regular customers tagging along. Try their newest flavours: Kinder Bueno and Thai Milk Tea, or go for popular combinations like Nutella with Banana and Oreo with Strawberry.
Catch them at the Jurong East bazaar till 31 Aug, before they hit up the Serangoon Central and Toa Payoh Central night markets next. We hear a physical store at The Hive in NTU is in the works! More information can be found on their Facebook page.
2. Go Frost
Previously housed in Wednesday Café, Go Frost now operates from a pushcart next to Al-Azhar Coffeeshop in Tampines. Local flavour combinations like Teh Tarik Milo, Bandung and Golden Horlicks aside, they also whip up Salted Caramel Frostrolls (as they call it) – made with a salted caramel base topped with biscuit crumbs. Each cup is priced between $4 to $5, depending on your chosen flavour and topping.
Got a wedding or birthday party coming up? They’ll roll right along and cater for your event too.

3. 21 CUBE Artisan Ice Cream
The most convenient of the lot, 21 CUBE Artisan Ice Cream, is located in *SCAPE and has been garnering snaking queues ever since it opened on 30 Jul.
Here, the pan-fried ice cream comes in flavours like matcha, yogurt and yakult. Mixers come in a whopping 20 variations – choose 1 for $4.90, 2 for $5.40 – for your customized combination. You won’t go wrong with a vanilla base topped with bits of Kinder Bueno and swirls of Nutella sauce.

To the northerners, no one is leaving you out of this. COyOrO – short for Cool Yogurt Roll – is a haven for anyone in search for a cold treat. For refreshing flavours at its best, get the CoCoroyo, a creamy coconut flavoured combination of ice cream and yogurt best topped with cranberries or peanuts, or the Tropicalm that features a tropical fruit mix of kiwi and mangoes. Your order might come served in a coconut husk, depending on which you choose.
Note: Second outlet located in East Village, Upper Changi.
