Review of Swensen Ice-Cream Buffet @ Ion Orchard22 August, 2009
Ion Orchard Swensen’s Ice-Cream Buffet
In an earlier post, I had introduced my readers to Waffle Buffet @ Eunos Post Office. I will be writing about another unique buffet in Singapore – Swensen’s Ice-Cream Buffet!
As part of Ion Orchard Swensen’s opening special, it is offering a One for One Ice Cream and Dessert Buffet deal. Original cost for a Swensen All You Can Eat Ice-Cream & Dessert Buffet is $18.90 per pax. Now, when you present the coupon below, you get to eat the buffet for $22.25 for 2 persons! (inclusive of 7% GST and 10% Service Charge) This offer is valid til 30 Sept and the buffet can be consumed anytime during its opening hours.
If you want to save the environment, you can also show them the e-coupon before ordering. Do go early to avoid long queues. The restaurant is quite empty at about 10am when we started our buffet feast. By the time we left at 11:30am, there are about 25 people in the queue!!
The seemingly endless ice-cream flavors should be able to keep you occupied for most of your time there. If not, there are many cakes – oreo cheese cake, apple tart, chocolate pecan pie etc. There are also waffles and different types of toppings to match your tastes for ice-cream.
You can also indulge yourself in the chocolate fondue with marshmallows and brownies.
For an overview of what the Swensen Ice-Cream Buffet, you can refer to their menu which listed all the different ice-cream flavor and toppings available.
There is also a special feature in this Swensen Ice-Cream Buffet – the Chop Shop. You let the staff know what are your preferred flavors and they will chop and mix all the flavors with your favorite toppings to create your own unique ice-cream flavor! We mixed Milo flavor ice-cream with chocolate chips and honey – Yummy!
We didn’t realize how many rounds of ice-cream, cake, waffles we had until we did this picture! Wow!
By the way, the flower balloon, at the last picture, is free courtesy of a balloon maker doing her rounds in Swensens, who seemed to be able to sculpt anything from a normal balloon.
