Ice Monster @ Bencoolen - Yummy Ice!

The past many days have been hot, and during one of the days we had cooling cold dessert of 'shaved ice durian and mango' at the Ice Monster @Bencoolen. The name of the dessert is quite cool in itself, i.e. "榴芒冰", playing on the names of the two fruits in mandarin to give the meaning of "流氓", i.e. gangster because they sounded similar.

The price tag of $8.50 for a large serving is not cheap, but nonetheless it is worth a try. The durian and mango taste fresh and good! I think the ice they used is milk ice, which gives it a smooth texture. The portion is big enough for two. They have other flavours, including strawberry.
