The Milky Way – Tanglin Halt / Commonwealth

An impromptu after dinner meet up with my girls had us end up in the west side of Singapore. They were craving for waffles and someone suggested The Milky Way. It isn’t new but I rarely go to the west side for food.

I was surprised to find the cafe so crowded in a pretty secluded area, Tanglin Halt. I understood why after I tasted their ice cream and waffles.

The Milky Way – Homemade Ice Cream & Coffee

There were many flavours of ice cream to choose from and also to our happiness – half waffles!

I left the most of the decision of flavours to my besties – other than choosing cookies and cream for my little nephew who tagged along this evening. I also ordered a strawberry milk shake because I was craving for it.

Doesn’t it look so inviting? The honeyed brown crispy belgian waffles with the right amount of fluff inside, topped with that deliciously rich oreo chunked ice cream was a delight. I am not a big fan of desserts / waffles but I enjoyed this waffles – it was good even on its own.

Decent cup of coffee but nothing to rave about. I was happier with my choice of drink!

Okay sorry this was a terribad photo, but it was creamy and fruity. Refreshing and not overwhelmingly sweet.

This flavour of ice cream was a little too intensely nutty for me. The Milky Way makes it 100% from top quality pistachios from Sicily, hence it’s richness and “nuttiness”. Perfect for the nut lovers.

The Milky Way Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream

Strawberry Cheesecake is definitely my favourite flavour out of all that we tried. Love cheesecake to begin with and this ice cream had strawberry swirls with chunks of biscuit in that cheesy ice cream. It’s just like having the cheesecake. No wonder it’s one of their best sellers.

We also tried their sea salt caramel which I found to be pretty mediocre.

Cosy ambience with home-made ice cream and waffles, it’s definitely a great choice for after meal hangout. I would definitely revisit to try their Smurf flavour after I read reviews on how it’s colour is not artificial but made from blueberry pea flowers.

They are closed on Tuesdays (unless it’s a public holiday) and opened daily from 1pm till 10pm on weekdays. For weekends they extend till 11pm. Do follow them on Instagram as they hold contests from time to time for giveaways!
