Bird of Paradise is one of the homegrown brand that we are proud of. Birds of Paradise is so named because the shop creates gelato inspired by the botanical flavours of nature. That means fruits, flowers, pods, herbs, and spices. The owner was inspired to make ice cream since more than a decade ago, experimenting with all types of flavours, till he wanted to settle for something more natural, unique and healthy at the same time.
They started along the road of East Coast around Joo Chiat then got popular when they arrived at Changi Jewel. We got excited when we discover they open another new branch along Craig Road. It‘s not our first try on the ice cream but the interior caught our eye this time. There isn’t much crowd when we visit it only opened for a few days.
When you entered, you are welcome by a row of delicious ice cream/ gelato. They are priced at $4.70 for a single scoop, $7.70 for a double scoop, $1 extra for thyme cone. There are so many flavours to choose from, from the creamy tarty-sweet Mango, floral-flavoured White Chrysanthemum with bits of cacao nibs, and delicate Lychee Raspberry.
The place may look big but there are only a few seats in the store. Recently one tone interior has been really popular and this is what this store was adopted. Using curves and light you feel like you have entered the other world. While you are enjoying your ice cream, there is a window showing how the ice cream cone is made.
Happy that they opened a new store along Craig Road, now we can just head down by a 10 minutes walk and have a little getaway before heading back to work.
