This year marks Swensen’s 40th anniversary in Singapore. Since their first branched opened here in 1979, this diner has only become better and better. With family and fun at the forefront, Swensen’s doesn’t just offer irresistible ice cream-it also features a cosy atmosphere, unforgettable memories, and a menu that leaves you spoilt for choice.
We scream for ice cream
Swensen’s may have evolved into more than just an ice cream parlour, but there’s no doubt that this sweet and frosty treat is still their shining star. With over 20 ice cream flavours to choose from, there’s truly something for everyone. Some of our most-loved options include the uniquely purple Coconut Yam, the indulgent Sticky Chewy Chocolate, and the love-it-or-hate-it Durian Supreme. Create your own sundae with two of your favourite ice cream flavours and two of your top toppings, with options like hot fudge, strawberries in syrup, or even a wafer. Alternatively, choose one of their ever popular pre-made combinations like the Swensen’s Banana Split. If you’re dining with friends, you have to try the Earthquake-a whopping eight scoops of ice cream with eight toppings!
Enjoy it guilt-free
Food always tastes better when you don’t have to worry about breaking your healthy eating plan. That’s why Swensen’s came up with the Guilt-Free range. Three flavours were launched in summer 2018: rich Chocolate, fresh Strawberry, and smooth Vanilla. They taste just as great as the regular range, with one big difference: each one has 39% less sugar than their traditional counterparts. Less sugar means less calories and zero guilt, so you can enjoy your favourite sundae any day of the week.
What to eat before dessert
You can’t go to Swensen’s without ordering a scoop of ice cream, but there’s so much more to enjoy on the menu beforehand. This restaurant has branched out from a humble dessert parlour to a full-blown diner specialising in both classic American and European favourites. One of the best dishes here is Fish and Chips. It may sound simple, but the fish itself is tender, moist and ocean-fresh, and the house tartar sauce is some of the best we’ve ever tasted. When you want something fancier, order the Black Pepper Seafood Pasta, loaded with fillet, mussels and crabsticks in an aromatic sauce. Or, if you’re more in the mood for meat, you’ll definitely enjoy the intense flavours of the Curry Chicken Baked Rice.
Order in with foodpanda
While the Swensen’s atmosphere is great for dining out, sometimes you just want to enjoy a great meal at home with the family. When that craving calls, you can order your favourite dishes straight to your door with foodpanda. You’ll find most of the same menu items available for delivery, with Swensen’s signature ice cream flavours available in pint tubs that are great for sharing (or storing in the freezer and enjoying all to yourself!).
