Our Flavours

Cereal Killer

This flavour was created in hopes to bring everyone back to a Saturday morning where we woke up early to catch our favourite cartoons on TV, without a care in the world about homework, or school. All that was important to us was the TV remote, a bowl of cereal and the cartoons that were showing at that moment ( Mighty Morphin Power Rangers FTW ) .

Sometimes we would get too engrossed with watching our shows that our cereal would slowly turn soggy, but also at the same time, the milk would be absorbing all the goodness of the cereal, which made the drinking of the milk the best part of breakfast. Cereal killer is all about encapsulating that Saturday morning shiokness into an ice cream

Orh-Bee-Good (Pulut Hitam)

This flavour is a memory of the dessert my grandmother used to cook  for the family only on special occasions, due to the tediousness of the process. It is referred to by many names: ” Burbur Hitam ” , ” Pulut Hitam “, ” Orh Chut Bee ” “Orh Bee Beh”.  I remember her standing in the kitchen in front of the stove working her grandmother-magic that made everything smell heavenly. I asked if I could stir it for her, but she always chased me away in fear that I might burn myself on the bubbling thick liquid.

“Don’t stand too close. Later you burn yourself pain-pain then orh-bee-good ah” she used to warn and tease.

When it came down to naming this ice cream, Orh Bee Good it is.

In-Kueh-Dible ( Salted Coconut & Gula Melaka)

I always watched my grandmother and my mother order Chendol from the dessert stores at the hawker centres on hot sweltering mornings after shopping at the wet market to beat the heat. Whilst eating, they will be reviewing which butcher had the best cut of pork or if the vegetable stall uncle/auntie threw in some freebies for them ( a of spring onions or a few chilli padis) .  I would get a few spoonfuls as reward for carrying things for them.

Inkuehdible is essentially a chendol-like ice cream, just without the green jelly and red beans . All the nonya kuehs all consist of coconut milk and gula melaka, hence the pun in the name
