Cavalock and The Best Vanilla Ice Cream in Town


Yah, I know I told myself I was in no hurry to join the masses at ION Orchard but that's where I was early Saturday morning. Was actually in town to replenish my Nespresso capsule supply, and the original plan was to have lunch at this new French bistro after reading Ice's mouth-watering review. But decided to make a detour at the last minute to ION to check this new gourmet supermarket 360.


Had an uneventful lunch at some teppanyaki/shubu shubu joint in ION, can't find the name card and it wasn't that fantastic so I'll just skip to the supermarket part of the story. Well, it's by the same folks from Marketplace/Cold Storage so you kinda know what to expect. You also got some Dean & Deluca stuff (don't get your hopes up, its not a lot) and the usual organic stuff.

But the best find has gotta be this. Tillamook premium ice cream! Am sure some of you out there already know all about this famous brand. My affogato is sure gonna kick some major ass now!!!

And speaking of my Nespresso, what do you guys think of this.


Espresso + rum = Good idea or bad idea?

*Doh* I forgot to drop by the Nespresso shop in ION!

HAHA you can get Tillamook at Cold Storage, Marketplace and Jasons. Nothing new hahaha. Heard Threesixty's nothing to shout about either, something like Marketplace.

really? i have never seen it at Cold Storage! hah! i sound like a mountain tortoise. hah

Cold Storage Great World City stocks plenty of Tillamook. But chances are, it's always low supply- people like me snatch them off the shelves.

forgot to say that the Threesixty can't beat COld Storage GWC and the specialty one opp Hard Rock Cafe. Threesixty doesn't quite sell things we want and stil gotta order online.

Nespresso cafe's still not open when I went today. The supermarket is crap. I can get everything at Marketplace or even Cold Storage.

You drive? How did you manage to transport the ice cream home? This atas place don't even provide dry ice, even Isetan gives ice cubes.
