We scream for ice cream: top places near Taikoo Place

< BACK TO THE MAG

The humidity is suffocating, and the summer heat is beating down on us. It’s the perfect excuse to cool down with a refreshing scoop of ice cream. Here are our top picks for the creamy treat around the Taikoo Place area.


Kyo Hayashiya

Satisfy your green tea craving at Kyo Hayashiya, the brand from Kyoto known for its heritage of making ceremonial green tea, which it translates into sweet treats like kakigori, mochi, roll cakes, affagatos and parfaits. There are so many variations of their soft serve green tea and hojicha parfaits that you’ll need to dedicate some time to try them all. Also check out its Facebook page for updates on monthly limited ice cream specials.

Milk Top

Milk Top uses the highest-quality Hokkaido Hidaka 3.6 milk to make its range of puddings, popsicles and ice creams and doesn't use preservatives, artificial flavouring or artificial coloring. They also offer a range of unusual flavours like sweet potato, lavender, sweet corn and cherry blossom. Opt for a creamy soft serve swirl in a cone or get the ice cream in a cute little cup.

Ten Ren’s Hong Kong

Ten Ren isn’t just about bubble tea drinks. If you haven’t tried its soft-serve tea ice creams, you're really missing out. Infusing the delicate flavours of Chinese teas like Iron Buddha and Guan Yin into a lightly sweetened, not-too-creamy delight is an ideal way to offset the heat. Check out its Facebook page for monthly flavour updates and deals. Recently the company was offering Assam black tea-flavoured ice cream and a deal for two ice cream cones for $38.
