5 the Moment ice cream shop 

My colleagues and I shared 2 sets of this. It was $10.80 for 3 flavours as opposed to $4.80 for 1 scoop.

We tried Strawberry, Mango, Hazelnut, Ferraro, Oreo and Salted Caramel. They tasted really awesome. It was a surprising find along Tanjong Pagar road, being nearer to the Maxwell end and smacked amongst the bridal studios.

From the outside, it looked so dim that it did not even seemed open. The decor was interesting but a tad oddly put together. The dim, white lighting was not inviting. I thought they should have invested in warm lighting or spotlights which might draw more attention to the cafe. To be honest, I wasn’t even sure if their main business was ice cream.

While the ice cream tasted great (I would put it up there with Ice cream chef and Creamier), there was no water, air con or friendly service. 

I guessed I might consider doing a takeaway instead.

Ice cream frenzy




Well, it was not bad. We went in a big group and tried quite a few flavors. The quality of ice cream was good but the flavors only worked for us to a certain extent. The orange tiramisu was too fruity. The coffee ice cream was too bitter. The general ones were fine. The apple ice cream was nicely done.

The decor was a little odd with a mix of Asian art and teddy bears too.

The pricing was $3 per scoop for normal flavor and $4 for a premium flavor. It was quite well priced but I guess it would not be a place that we would swing out of our way for.

Perhaps the decor of the place could be improved to encourage people to stay and visit.

Dessert for the week


This used to be my favorite, but super fattening, chocolate in Uni days.  I was pleasantly surprised to spy it in ice cream form at Meidi-Ya supermarket.  I loved the strawberry flavouring used in most Japanese confectionery and needless to say, I enjoyed this very much.

I also picked up a Hokkaido Chocolate Mille Crepe Cake from the supermarket.  We went there so often but there was always something new to discover each time.

A friend commented that we always seemed to be at Meidi-Ya.  Well, to a large extent, it was true.  Grocery shopping had always been a regular feature and was always functional.  However, shopping at Meidi-Ya was always full of surprises due to the vastly different range of goods available.  Mr H could recall fondly of his younger days when he used to visit the Japanese supermarkets such as Yaohan and Sogo.

It seemed like such a fun family tradition to continue.

Z definitely loved to shop for his snacks too, so did I.

Mr H’s version of a snack was a post-dinner supper of marked down sashimi.
