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.
