Aqua S Ice Cream Parlour, Sydney


Funky fla­voured soft serve isn’t all that easy to find in Sydney. Whereas you can find fla­vours like sweet potato and sake not all that far from main city centres in Japan, matcha soft serve is about as adven­tur­ous as fla­vours go here. So when C told me about Aqua S Ice Cream Parlour in Regent Place, I was all ears.

Sea salt is the staple menu item at aqua S. The sea salt soft serve also takes on that beau­ti­ful aqua col­our cov­er­ing their walls. Salty soft serve doesn’t par­tic­u­larly entice me, but it did tickle C’s fancy. It tastes akin to dip­ping a French fry into McDonald’s soft serve. C also asked for fairy floss with her soft serve so it looked as if the soft serve were float­ing atop a cloud. The fairy floss is made to order for assured fluffi­ness.


I love lem­on tea, so how could I pass it up for sea salt! The lem­on tea soft serve is remin­is­cent of Lipton lem­on iced tea con­cen­trate powder. It has the same intense sweet­ness and sour­ness when you mix a lot of con­cen­trate with a little bit of water. They prob­ably got the pretty yel­low col­our with just the con­cen­trate. I also asked for a toasted marsh­mal­low — I love toasted marsh­mal­low fla­voured foods (like jelly beans!) but the actu­al toasted marsh­mal­low itself? I’m not that keen, but I get suckered into try­ing it all the same. Isn’t it pretty toasted?
