I've always thought the ice creams at Spot Dessert Bar, often overshadowed by "dessert tapas," deserve a little more attention. They come in flavors like Vietnamese Coffee, Condensed Milk, Green Tea, and, of course, Ovaltine. It's the latter I've been craving, either to-go or to stay when it's quiet in the afternoons.
Sublimely smooth and creamy in texture, the signature malty, chocolate flavor comes through pronounced and bold; it's like taking in Ovaltine in frozen form. The ice cream and sorbet toppings here are something you won't want to pass on: think crunchy, cool palm seeds and nata de coco, spiced caramelized popcorn, pineapple confit, and house-made foams in raspberry and passionfruit.
