The hip quotient of Tiger Beer has now gone up a notch now that the Singaporean beer has gotten Jessica Alba as their spokesperson. Since I'm a straight girl, I don't really understand why so many of my guy pals are drooling over this starlet . Doesn't this Latino girl look a tad strange with blond locks?
To me, the beer was hotter than the girl.
And I was really excited when I found out that some enterprising sod out there made Tiger Beer into a sorbet! In case you're wondering, a sorbet is an icy dessert normally made out of fruit juice but this time it's made out of booze. Not that I mind but it doesn't have that alcoholic twang to it and worse, it comes in a sissy shade of pink! Ugh. The taste was also mildy bitter-sweet. Since there is no chance of me getting high on that sorbet, I prefer the other home-spun flavours that are available in that shop (Island creamery and they are : teh tarik ( a local tea latte) and pulot hitam ( a local black glutinous rice dessert) and their to-die-for mud-pies and baked alaskas. They're way better than the Tiger Beer Sorbet so take that Jessica!
Tip: That's not the only shop which offers home-made-local flavours, there are other shops in town that offer equally quirky flavours. Here they are:
The best flavour over here is jackfruit. The durian comes a close second. Both flavours are creamy, full of pulp and intensely sweet.
Shaw Leisure Gallery ( Shaw Tower ) 100 Beach Road 01-25
13 Upper Dickson Road S(207473), 01-01
This is traditional indian ice cream and unlike western-styled ice creams , the texture of khulfi is more dense. Try the pistachio flavour.
4)The Daily Scoop
Favorite Dish: Their Mudpie ( $4.50 per slice) is literally to die for. I nearly clobbled my spouse on the head as we rushed to finish the coffee/choc/oreo ice cream what was enveloped with crunchy oreo bits. Coming a close second is their Teh Tarik ice cream ( $2.50 per scoop), the rich, tea-flavoured ice cream is delicious.
