Udders is a local ice cream chain that aims to produce high quality ice cream with the best and freshest ingredients. Its extensive menu of more than 30 flavours is popular among ice cream fanatics in Singapore.
Went there after dinner for some desserts. Sampled a couple of flavours before arriving at a decision. We ordered a waffle with ice-cream each and ordered different flavours so we could sample a wider variety. In general, the alcoholic flavours were pretty strong so it is definitely a boon for alkies out there! Rum & raisin and tiramisu were heavily spiked with rum and brandy respectively. Tried the bailey's & bourbon which weren't too bad either. For the non-alcohlic flavours, we only tried the classic cookies & cream as well as gila melaka, which is gula melaka ice-cream embedded with bits of attap chee or palm fruit. Both were good, creamier and sweeter than the alcoholic flavours, thus refreshing the palate whenever we got a little tired of the alcoholic ones. For the waffles, taste-wise it was subjective. 2 of us enjoyed it while the other 2 felt it was ordinary. But at only $2.90 for a sizeable piece of waffle made fresh upon order, don't think anyone should complain about that.
Been to a lot of eateries along Siglap, so also familiar with Udders ice cream. Recently they did a renovation to change the layout of the shop (still not quite sure why they did that).
Anyway, always been a fan of their ice cream. Like coming here during late nights and catching some desserts for supper or just after dinners.
I always go for their alcohol flavours. That's the most unique thing that they have there compared to other icecream places, and I like that the alcohol flavours are rich and strong.
Recently they started to promote their Sundaes but i just prefer normal two scoops (usually 2 alchohol flavours) plus a hot waffle. Great combi!
Friends told my wife and I about Udders, and since we live in the east, we've been here a few times now with different groups of friends. Although I am not really a dessert person, ice cream is still one of my all-time fave foods. Udders has a number of branches around Singapore but so far at the time of writing this review, we've only ever visited the Siglap one since we live not too far away.
Its a cozy two-storied shop house along the main road. You can either sit downstairs or climb a small spiral stairwell to the second level. Shop is air-conditioned of course, and as most ice cream parlors now do, they have chalkboards and things like that hanging around the shop. Parking is going to be a problem since they only have like 8 lots shared between 4 different shops/restaurants. The only aspect I don't really like other than the parking are the seats. They remind me of cheap short Ikea wooden stools with no backing, and are quite uncomfortable to sit on. Other than that, the rest is quite normal.
The staff are generally nice and friendly. As another reviewer mentioned, they're mostly young girls wearing short shorts. However, during weekends and supper when the shop is crowded, I've seen them more than once mistakenly take orders not following the queue line. So some people queuing behind have their orders taken first, and those in front get a little ticked off. Of course this is coz of the long and messy queues that usually form on busy nights, so I guess some mistakes are bound to happen. A lot of people have to even queue outside the shop coz of the lack of space near the counter. I'm just left wondering why they don't just designate a proper queue line for busier hours.
Food / Pricing ~
I won't go into detail about their flavors and such coz the previous reviewers have covered pretty much everything. Suffice to say, between my wife and I, we have tried all the chocolates, nuts, and she had a durian one before too. I have also tried 2 of their alcohol flavors. In my opinion, their alcohol flavors are the only ones really worth buying. The alcohol really hits you after a scoop or two, so you know you're really getting what you pay for. For the other flavors though, my wife and I agree that they are over-priced, and nothing special that you can't find at other ice cream parlors.
There are more and more ice cream parlors opening around Singapore all the time. At the end of the day, Udders kind of seems like just another one. The only thing that stands out are their alcohol based flavors which I feel are the only ones worth the price. Recommended for their alcohol ice creams, which are good, the rest are very normal.
