Ice cream incoming!

Swirlz is a new ice cream bar on Yuyuan Lu, brought to you by Priscilla Young, co-founder of Brut Eatery and Ms P’s Basque burnt cheesecakes, and Jun Wu, executive chef of Brut Eatery.

There are four flavors of ice cream, all made fresh in-house with 100% milk and 100% fruit purée. To start, Swirlz has Meiji fresh milk, dark chocolate, strawberry, and the awesomely funky soy sauce caramel (it’s like salted caramel but with that familiar soy sauce flavor).

Soy Sauce Caramel

Ice creams are available as a cone or in a cup, ¥28 for one flavor or ¥30 for two flavors.

Strawberry (Fruit flavors will rotate!)

Ice creams are also available in sundae form, fully loaded with toppings like buttered popcorn, crispy Serrano ham and chocolate wafers. My favorite is the Fig & Ham (because, obviously, it has that salty Serrano on top).

Piña Colada (coming soon) – Fresh milk ice cream, Diplomatico, pineapple, coconut.

The plan is to rotate in some funky flavors on a monthly basis. Flavors churning soon include black sesame, lemon cheesecake, pandan coconut, and milk tea.

Swirlz also has coffee (Americano, ¥22; Affogato, ¥34) and some fizz drinks.
