Street Food: Singapore’s Wafer Ice Cream
The heat of Singaporean late afternoon and evening has taken a toll on me. I need to cool off. While we all thought that Singapore is clean and organized in its streets, they too also have some street foodies for the people. I guess the cheapest street food I got was the ice cream wafer (or wafa, potong or phia ice cream) sandwich. They are all over Orchard Road!
If Philippines has sorbetes (I simply refuse to call it “dirty ice cream”), Singapore has wafer ice cream sandwich. The wafer ice cream vendors cut a block of ice cream then stuff it in a wafer and you got your own ice cream wafer sandwich! They come in different flavors such as your usual chocolate or vanilla, and special flavors such as red mongo, and the like. I had my blueberry wafer ice cream. Also take note that these block ice creams are “branded.”
If wafers are not your type, try stuffing your ice cream in multi-coloured bread too!
And it’s cheap—only SG$1! Perhaps the cheapest thing I’ve seen so far in Singapore, except for MRT tickets.
It’ll surely make your stay in Singapore cooler.
