Tom's Palette (again)

It's been a while since I've returned to Tom's Palette, a very long while; I think the last time i went there was probably about a year ago, and returning there to that little corner in Shaw Towers really brought back memories of going out on foodie trips with J, and hopping from place to place - first the main course, then the ice cream. But now I have tried to cut down on the eating - instead what I do is to have tried to become a coffee connoisseur rather than an ice cream connoisseur - i figured it would be better for the waistline.

But I just went back to Tom's, and my my, was it soooo good. Eunice the affable shopkeeper has a wonderful knack of creating such delicious flavours you can't help but go ooooh... she's been creating alot of new flavours ever since i came around, and there was this april fool's flavour that consisted of onions, and i actually thought it was durian. cute. and another one called "hot and sizzle" - when you put the ice cream in your mouth there's actually a sizzling sound. again, very cute! I had what i usually had, salted caramel cheesecake - still as creamy and cheesy and a bit salty as ever, and the buttered pecans,which is not always available but is so good because there's this butteriness to the ice cream, a bit of coffee undertone, and lots of nutti earthliness - and definitely some salt to bring out the flavour. very very good. (9/10).

Maybe absence makes the heart grow fonder - and the taste ever better. but tom's. oh man. if only you werent' so far away and there was a better way to lose some calories....
