If you’re a foodie who’s up to date with the latest craze, you definitely would’ve seen Aqua S’ photos plastered all over social media with their iconic fairy floss topping.
Aqua S is a relatively new store so the queues are still out the door. You shouldn’t have trouble finding it, just look out for a brightly lit place with a swarm of people packed inside with perfectly manicured hands holding the ice cream against the store’s aqua wallpaper in the perfect angle snapping a photo and putting it through various instagram filters #Aesthetic
I’m a total sucker for sweets so of course I had to check em out and be a typical Asian foodie taking photos.
Mandarin & sea salt in a cup, Taro and sea salt in a cone, $3.80 each.
They change their flavors every two weeks, this fortnight’s special flavour is Mandarin and Taro (Sea salt is a permanent flavor on their menu)
I found the mandarin flavor to be really odd with a slightly bitter aftertaste, I didn’t hate it but I probably wouldn’t get it again.
On the other hand, sea salt was really strange, but in a good way. It’s sweet at first and then it gets saltier as it melts in your mouth. It’s really bizarre and I’m not really doing it any justice trying to explain it, but it is definitely something I would go back for. The taro is amazing too, but then again I’ve never had a bad experience with taro flavored anything.
Usually I don’t go for cones and prefer my ice cream/gelato in a cup, but I’m glad I got this in a cone. Even though the ice cream melts at the speed of light, it was surprisingly fresh and crunchy that the driping mess was worth it all.
It’s good to see new places like this popping up, it’s giving us more options for when our sweet tooth starts aching. Hopefully they continue to have good flavors next time I re-visit.
