Hiding at the back of WOAW! concept store, Elephant Grounds is a mini coffee bar with a little balcony facing Kau U Fong. Their ice cream sandwiches are available every week and are so popular. Needless to say, I am pretty amazed by this week's flavour!
It is composed of two rose flavoured macaron shells, which envelop delicious vanilla ice cream, with strawberry jam sandwiched between and surrounded by dried cranberries.
True to its name, the vanilla ice cream has a pretty strong vanilla flavour due to a visible amount of vanilla seeds, which completely blew my expectations. Whilst the macaron is rather weak in terms of rose flavour, the chewy and fairly crisp texture is well received. I suppose it would be perfect to pair with a cup of coffee just to balance out the sugariness. Be sure to check them out during weekends as they are limited to only 40 sandwiches per day.
