Sunday Folks is a dessert restaurant featuring a soft-serve dessert concept located in the heart of Chip Bee Gardens. It serves mainly just 6 flavours of sof serve ice-cream and range of cakes which changes routinely as well as their famous crsip eggy waffles too.

When J texted me about Sunday Folks, sister chain of Creamier, I was still on the fence about it. Then she sent me pictures of her waffles, and I had no further qualms.
Miss XS was angling for their pistachio ice cream, but pistachio was sold out when we arrived mid-afternoon. Based on Hungrygowhere's top recommendations, Miss XS and I shared Waffles with Seasalt Gula Melaka Ice Cream ($11.80). Gula Melaka, or palm sugar, is processed from the flowers of certain palm trees (such as from coconut trees, or date palm trees).
The waffle was fresh and fluffy and the edges remained crispy even as the ice cream melted and pooled over. How does it manage to do that? The sheet of crunchy charcoal waffle just below the ice cream was also a nice touch.
creaminess of the coconut base is apparent the minute it crossed my lips, but we couldn't taste any salt. Shame. Large flakes of seasalt perched on the swirl of ice cream would have been picturesque, and would have nicely balanced the cloying sweetness of the ice cream. It's sweet, not in-your-face-until-your-tooth-aches, but a more subtle sweetness that creeps up and accumulates in your mouth, until you start craving for a glass of water for the rest of the day. With the syrup drizzled around the perimeter of the waffles, the sweetness is overkill. We downed cups of water from their water dispenser with an adorable gold tap, but it was too little too late. But the consistency of the soft-serve was perfect, I just didn't care for the gula melaka flavour.
Love the waffle, Neither of us enjoyed the Gula Melaka Ice Cream, but Miss XS is a fan of their Roasted Pistachio ice cream. From the way she described the pistachio vs gula melaka, I will be back to try the Pistachio.
