Ice Cream and Egglet Waffles (Hong Kong Gai Dan Zai) at Lickety, Ice Cream Parlour near Haji Lane

Is Lickety cafe closed?

Yes. Unfortunately, Lickety Ice-cream & Waffles, a halal cafe in Bugis that specialises in egglet desserts, is permanently closed. It is currently occupied by Zan’s Loft.

But, if you’d like to stick around and find out how Lickety fared when they were still operating, here’s our honest review of their egglets, brownies and ice cream.

Our review of Lickety Ice-cream & Waffles

Opened by halal-certified Fika Swedish Café & Bistro and Konditori Artisan Bakery, Lickety Ice-cream & Waffles hit Singapore with its Insta-worthy egglet desserts at Bussorah Street. It is located near Haji Lane, one of the most Instagrammable spots in Singapore.

Riding on the craze over Hong Kong egglets (鸡蛋仔), coupled with the aesthetics of their desserts, Lickety rose to fame rapidly and managed to retain their popularity among foodies. 

As an indecisive person, choosing ice-cream flavours has been one of the greatest obstacles of my life, especially at Lickety with their assortment of flavours. Ranging from the classic Dark Angel (Dark Chocolate), to a fancier creation Root Beer Float, it took me aeons to finally settle down for one.

Popular flavours were the Avocado & Chocolate and Speculoos.

The Avocado & Chocolate was the perfect pairing. The lightness of the avocado countering the decadence that most chocolate desserts bring, making the ice cream very palatable.

Meanwhile, the sugar level of Speculoos flavour was just right. Even until the very last bite, it didn’t make me crave gallons of water to wash the sweetness down.

Special mention to the Lingonberry Swirl, which really surprised me with the subtlety of the berry flavour infused with the vanilla ice cream.

Single scoop ice-cream can be purchased at $4.5.

Should you order the egglet or brownie?

While Lickety rose to fame with its aesthetic egglet photos, they have also launched a new base that complements their ice cream.

The brownies at Lickety were sticky, chewy and most importantly, blessed with intense bitterness. Lickety’s brownies definitely won my heart over. But of course, if you’re all about that #foodporn #aesthetic #cafe, then the egglet is a much better option!

The egglet comes in two different flavours — Red Velvet and Buttermilk.

During my most recent visit, I ordered one scoop of ice cream with the buttermilk egglet and pocky toppings for $8.9. Personally, I felt that the egglet could be crispier. While the egglet tasted rather bland compared to other egglet stores, the lower sweetness level really complemented the ice cream.
