The Sweet Stone Parad'Ice

We were having dinner at Modestos and wondering what to have for dessert when Victor suggested this place, which happens to be opened by a friend of his. I heard about this place a long time ago but figured with all that hype there would be long queues so wanted to wait for a bit... then kinda forgot about it :P

We ordered the Royal Claypot Fondue Set $14.50 which comes with the chocolate fondue, an assortment of fruits (strawberries, grapes, honeydew, bananas), masrhmellow, waffles and two scoops of home-made ice-cream -

Quite an impressive spread right? There were five of us there and this was just nice... if you've had a full dinner before this. On an empty stomach, I think I could eat this on my own... Ok, maybe not :D

The chocolate was sweet without being excessively so... and being thick, it was very obviously good quality chocolate. The waffles (which was apparently authentic Belgian waffles) has more of a thicker, bready texture than we're used to but still quite yums.

What we could not stop raving about was the gelato... nothing I hate more than strawberry ice cream because of the artificial strawberry flavour, but this strawberry gelato was home-made and had plenty of actual strawberry bits in it so I really liked it. We tried a few more flavours and it was all good...

Good value for a good quality dessert! A new branch recently opened up at the Old Airport Road Hawker Centre so try that one if this location is not so convenient for you.
