Varieties to Enjoy

Kueh Salat Rice Dumpling Ice Cream ($63.80 for 650g)

The star of Swensen’s lineup, this giant-sized dumpling boasts two layers of ice cream: butterfly blue pea coconut and pandan coconut. Encased in a full golden chocolate shell, it houses three salted egg yolk bon bons, offering a rich and layered experience that promises to surprise and delight with every bite. The giant Kueh Salat dumpling was a showstopper. The combination of butterfly blue pea coconut and pandan coconut ice creams created a visually stunning and flavourful treat. The full golden chocolate shell added a luxurious touch, while the three salted egg yolk bon bons inside provided textural contrast and depth. This dessert was a feast for both the eyes and the palate, perfect for sharing on special occasions.

Pulut Hitam Rice Dumpling Ice Cream ($9.80 for 90g)

Back by popular demand, this flavour presents a rich purple ice cream interspersed with bits of black glutinous rice, reminiscent of the sticky rice in a traditional ‘Zongzi’. The coconutty notes of the ice cream harmonise beautifully with the sweet-savoury salted egg chocolate bon bon at its center, creating a mouthwatering blend of textures and flavours. This flavour was a nostalgic delight. The rich purple hue and bits of black glutinous rice brought back memories of traditional pulut hitam desserts. The salted egg chocolate bon bon added a sophisticated sweet-salty balance that elevated the overall experience. Each bite was a perfect blend of creamy coconut and the distinct taste of black glutinous rice, making it a standout.

Pandan Coco Rice Dumpling Ice Cream ($9.80 for 90g)

Inspired by the traditional Nyonya dumpling, this variant features pandan coconut ice cream wrapped in aromatic pandan leaves. The core of salted egg yolk bon bon adds a burst of authenticity, making each bite a fragrant and indulgent treat. The pandan coconut ice cream was aromatic and refreshing, with a delicate balance of flavours that paid homage to the traditional Nyonya dumpling. The inclusion of the salted egg yolk bon bon added a burst of savoury richness that complemented the sweetness of the ice cream. This flavour was both authentic and indulgent, a true testament to Swensen’s creativity.
