First Bite: Farmacy Ice Cream and Soda Fountain

I have been planning to visit Farmacy Ice Cream and Soda Fountain for almost a year now! But for some reason, I always end up going somewhere else till one Monday night.

My long wait is finally over! Hello, Farmacy Ice Cream and Soda Fountain!
The store is quite charming with its slightly retro signage.
I also loved the “prescriptions” sign which is a play with the name of the store (Farmacy—Pharmacy).

But what I loved most about this place is the oh-so-patient staff who let us try as many flavors as we want till we decide which one to order. I think I sampled over 8 flavors.

After my sampling spree, I decided to get Pick Me Up sundae (PHP280) which comes with Hazelnut, Vanilla and Coffee Verve ice cream, toffee nuts, whipped cream and an espresso shot topped with thin chocolate waffle. Since I wasn’t too crazy with vanilla, I went with Milk, one of the flavors R sampled. Milk was just like vanilla, only creamier. I also swapped whipped cream with sliced almonds for more texture.

And after a bit, my sundae arrived.
The sundae bowl was packed with the three scoops of ice cream. It was a challenge to gracefully scoop the ice cream out especially after pouring espresso. Oh well.
I loved the hazelnut flavor best. It has that lovely nutty taste in a delectably smooth texture. It was also not overly sweet. Coffee Verve was good too but it was not something that stood out for me. Or perhaps it was because the espresso overpowered it. (I really regret pouring the whole thing in! It made our dessert a bitter ending!) If you want something light and creamy, milk flavor would be your best bet!

R enjoyed munching on the sweet toffee nuts. Actually, thanks to that, we were able to finish the bowl. Yes, it was that bitter! Pick Me Up sure made me remember why I don’t drink espresso.
Overall though, it was still a pleasant experience. I had fun choosing which flavors to put in my sundae. Next time, I’ll make my own sundae instead of just swapping flavors and toppings.
