Small Potatoes Ice Creamery – Purple Yam Ice Cream opens in Singapore!
If you have heard about Small Potato Ice Creamery that specialize in purple yam ice cream in Hong Kong, you can now get these purple delights in Singapore at Novena Square2. Purple color are appealing to the eyes but does it really appeal to the taste buds?
Ordered twice and both times, they missed out on several items in the cup of soft serve! How not to be utterly disappointed when we paid nearly $10 for a cup right on each occasion? For a small cup, we felt that it was very pricey.
We ordered the Small Potato Party but I guessed they served us Small Potatoes & Brothers ($7.50) instead. Comes with Japanese Yam, Crispy Rice, Japanese Purple Yam Paste and Azuki Beans. The sweet potato ice cream has a creamy texture and is not overly sweet but I like the purple yam paste better.
Small Potato Party ($9.50) + $0.50 for mixed alternating twirl of sea salt ice cream. Please CHECK for the following items in case you get short-changed: Japanese Yam. Japanese Yam Paste, Warabi Mochi, Shiratama, Crispy Rice, Purple Sweet Potato Stick and Azuki Beans.
Himalayan Sea Salt tends to have a milky texture and overshadows the light sweet potato flavour. Would suggest going for the pure sweet potato soft serve.
P.S. Photos were taken outside of Square 2, after climbing a fight of stairs, owing to poor lighting at the basement.
Speaking of purple colour food, thought I will share this purple sweet potato milky snow mountain ($9.90) I had a week ago at Nice Day Desserts! For the same price and similar ingredients (mochi and azuki bean), this snow mountain gives Small Potatoes Ice Creamery a good run for their money.
While the texture of the ice is not Bingsoo shaved ice kind, I have to add that the scoop of coconut ice cream atop is especially refreshing.
Who knows, purple power food might be the next trend to come!
