Tom's Palette has been receiving pretty good reviews from a good many food bloggers and it was about time that I took a trip down to Shaw Towers to have a look for myself. It tries to make itself out to be one of the healthier ice-cream parlours - "Tom's Palette is also healthier as we cut half the sugar level and replaced part of the cream with milk" - while at the same time working hard to keep coming up with new, unique flavours.
I tried the "Granny's Favourite" (doubt my own grandmother would like this much, but hey, "Tom's" granny does) and it was quite good - chocolate, malt and cookie dough. When I heard the cheery girl say "cookie dough" I knew I had to have a cup of this, even if I was so full from dinner. The ice-cream was very smooth, you can tell there's a slight difference in taste and texture and I'm quite sure it has something to do with their use of milk and eggs. It melts quite fast though. Overall I would give the ice-cream a 3.75/5 and I would certainly be back to try out their other flavours.
$2.50 for a small cup.
