There's been so many ice cream shops sprouting out everywhere - and there's so many near my house! There's Venezia, Daily Scoop, Ice Cremery and Haato! I've never tried haato before, cos it's so ulu and hard to get to - its located inside Ridgewood Condominium.

It's japanese italian ice cream - and there's lots of Japanese flavours such as yuzu (type of orange/citrus fruit), melon (which is really yummy - think a nicer not so sweet version of the haagen daz ice cream), green tea, green tea with red beans, coconut, soursop, milk tea, cookies and cream (which suppose to be their best seller), etc etcTheir waffles are fantastic - forget gelare!! Waffles with 2 scoops of ice cream is $8.50 and the waffle is thick and fluffy and crispy on the outisde. Furthermore, the waffles are cooked in the open - so theres a nice bakery smell warfting about inside the restaurant. Don't need to wait for half price waffles on tuesday anymore!There's so many flavours too - I liked the sweetpotato, honey and chestnut ice cream, as well as the chocolate banana ice cream. The chocolate banana is thick and chocolatey and there's a banana aftertaste - I imagine that this will be how secret recipe's chocolate banana cake tastes like in ice cream form :D

Last time they had milk ice cream, which is really unique, unfortunately, they have discontinued this flavour. It's pretty unique and it's hard to find places with milk ice cream. Sigh!

I also tried the Unatamadon (Unagi with egg and rice) which was $8. It's pretty tiny for 8 bucks but tastes ok.
