Singapore’s all-year-round hot and humid weather can be a real nuisance. Other than retreating to an air-conditioned mall or beating the heat with some cooling beverages, enjoying a scoop or two of gelato or ice cream is the next best thing. While the island city has plenty of them, we have narrowed them with our
handcrafted handpicked list of 8 Gelato/Ice Cream Places in Singapore Worth Indulging.
Here is where you can enjoy your favourite gelato minus the guilt, thanks to its keto-friendly ingredients. And it’s halal-certified too, while all of Momolato’s keto gelato range contains no added sugar or even honey. Some of the tasty choices available include Cookies & Cream, Korean Strawberry Cheesecake Swirl and Avocado Chocolate, just to name a few. Momolato also offers fruit-based gelatos that are dairy-free, making them suitable for lactose intolerance. Try their refreshing Watermelon Soursop, which turns out to be one of Momolato’s bestsellers. How about the low-fat tropical goodness of Himalayan Osmanthus Mango Passionfruit?

To date, they have two outlets in Serangoon Central and Jalan Legundi.

Beyond the nostalgic Katong Shopping Centre and specifically the basement area lies a cosy ice cream parlour called The Humble Scoop. They serve homemade ice cream and what’s unique about them is their locally-inspired flavours. For instance, there’s Muah Chee — a combination of roasted sesame and peanut ice cream sprinkled with crunchy peanut bits. Others like Orh-Bee-Good (Pulut Hitam) and Orh Haw! (Hawthorn Berry) bring back the good old memories in the form of ice creams.

Durian lovers, in the meantime, can look forward to Mao Shan Wang made from fresh durian puree.
