Uncle Tan – Ice Cream Man is
THE OFFICIAL ICE CREAM MAN!
Awe inspiring. Most humbling.
Uncle Tan is the last of the REAL ice cream man. He has been making ice cream for 60 years. Taste 5 oiishi flavors of ice creams (chocolate, Mango, Durian, Atap seed, Coconut). Traditional craft. 👏🏼👍🏼
Who is Uncle Tan Ice Cream Uncle
Behind the checkered shirt and weathered skin is a man who takes deep pride in his craft.
Me: Uncle, is your ice-cream the same as the ones in Orchard Road?
Uncle: *feeling offended* I make my own ice-cream. I have been making these ice-creams for past 60 years. The durian ice cream is authentic MSW. I have big atap seed, not small pieces.
Me: Uncle, why you never go Jurong and sell?
Uncle: Jurong? Cannot lah. This vehicle cannot get onto expressway. It will take me 2 hours just to travel from Bedok to Jurong.
Me: Uncle, why you don’t sell at MRT or bus interchange? Or outside school?
Uncle: Cannot lah. Nobody got time to eat at MRT/bus interchange. I once sell outside school, aiyo, some kids no money but keep standing beside you and looked at the ice-cream, how to tahan.

So traditional that he kept his ice cream cones in Jacob tin cans!!
Go find Uncle Tan if you are in Hougang (opp. CHIJ Our Lady of Nativity), or Uncle Tan’s son in Bedok.
Help preserve the traditional hawker cart ice cream. May this Singaporean heritage live on!
