I have heard of Brownice so much that I was actually looking forward to visit the place when Luke suggested going there for dessert after our lunch meet up. I am glad that Luke is back in Singapore again after leaving for Penang for a short while. Yes, Luke is back in the Singapore blog sphere documenting his hunt of the best vegetarian food. Brownice makes dairy free, vegan ice cream from organic brown rice milk, fruits and nuts. The healthier and low fat choice is as yummy as the other ice parlours around the island.
Tofu Crumble Pizza 3/5
Besides ice cream, Brownice also has other items such as pizza and waffles on the menu. I tried the Tofu Crumble Pizza ($11.80) which is a thin crust pizza topped with tofu and vegan nut cheese. The flavours stood out for me especially the vegan nut cheese. However I felt the pizza base was stale, probably oven from some instant dough. Saying that, I also noticed that Brownice has posted on the facebook that they have improved the pizza quality and indeed looks better than my visit. I look forward in trying their improved recipe as well as the different new flavours they have introduced such as the Fish Curry, Middle Eastern Hummus and English Breakfast etc.
Waffles 3/5 with 2 Scoop of Ice Cream 4/5
The Waffles ($3.50) is freshly made and drizzled with organic chocolate fudge. The waffle itself was crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. I had 2 scoops of ice cream ($5.90) to go with the waffles and I went for the Peanut Butter Caramel and Dark Chocolate. The ice cream surprisingly is really creamy and flavourful. The dark chocolate was my favourite for its intense rich chocolate flavour.
The Mudpie ($9.80) made with smooth French and hazelnut chocolate ice cream, served on a bed of brown rice crisps and topped with dark chocolate ganache and caramelised sea salted almond is a must try if you are into chocolate. Chocolatey and nutty, these combination is simply heaven. However I thought it was a bit pricey for the portion that is served.
Even thought the ice creams at Brownice is diary free, you would not really taste the different as it still comes with that creamy and smooth texture. Moreover the selections of flavours are extensive with interesting flavours such as Banana Oats, Lemongrass Tea Sorbet, Pumpkin Coconut, just to name a few. The best is that even lactose intolerant people can now enjoy these ice creams!
