It’s with great pleasure today that I’m helping my friend to advertise her new Taiwanese dessert shop!
Founded on April 11 this year, Ice Vault 18 is a dessert store which provides the good taste of Taiwan’s authentic traditional ice dessert and bubble tea! Their mission is to present only the freshest, best tasting and having top notch quality desserts which Ice Vault 18 insists on, and saying NO to artificial colouring and preservatives!
The origins of how the name Ice Vault 18 came about is from an ancient Chinese history. During Qing dynasty, 18 exorbitant ice vaults were built with warrant from the emperor for storage of ice and consumption of ice was a privilege, only for the royal families and noble ranked officials issued with ice vouchers.
So there, visit Ice Vault 18 and feel like a royalty. Bask in the super nice tasting desserts and melt the Singapore heat!
Haha, there’s a super baby in the house! We (Sec school mates) visited her shop!
All their ingredients are hand made! Therefore, it is extra tasty and more Q Q!
With so many choices to choose from, we were all taking our time to choose what we want! They also have a point card where you accumulate 1 point with every $3 spent. Accumulate 10 points to redeem a free dessert/drink pried at $3 or less. T&C as below.
These are what we ordered.
I ordered the Aiyu jelly. I was still having stomachache but was slightly better, so I requested to go without lemon too so that it’s less acidic.
To be honest, I don’t usually go for Chinese desserts as I prefer the English cakes and ice-cream, but I have to say that this aiyu jelly is really nice! As I’m typing this entry in the hot afternoon, I can already feel the heat and I so wanna eat this again!
The texture is just nice, super Q Q, and it’s really refreshing.
Next up is Grass Jelly Number 2 with jade jelly and Jiufen taro & sweet potato balls. Verdict, the sweet potatoes are so Q and sweet, it’s ultra mouth watering! And the sweet potatoes freshly came out from the steamer oh!
This is Silky soycurd with honey golden pearls and honey pineapple. It was also smashing licking good.
This is grass jelly number 3 with honey red bean, honey sweet potato and jade jelly.
Bf ordered this drink. Blended fresh taro milk. He LOVES it!
Last, Anqi had black sugar milk with grass jelly pudding. She too, loves it!
This is written not because the owner is my friend, but really because the food has got standard. That is also one reason why I don’t quite like to order Chinese desserts from say food court, because usually it doesn’t taste good.
Ice Vault 18 changes my opinion on Chinese desserts and I can’t to go back to try more!
Yumy yummy! Bf trying out my dessert and also thinks it’s nice!
Lao Ban Niang smiling so happily!
That day was also a celebration of June & July babies birthdays, so we decided to go to Lao Ban Niang’s store to cut the cake just so that she can be with us to celebrate!
Max is a June baby and Anqi is a July baby. The real baby Jayden is joining in the fun because he is a baby!
Jayden looking intensively at the cake!
