Review: Everton Creamery @ Everton Park

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

I paid the newest kid on Blk 7 of Everton Park a visit yesterday because the weather was being a bitch.

Everton Creamery joins the heavily populated Everton Park, joining the ranks of old timers like Audacious Cakery, Nylon and Grin Affair. Thankfully, not as another pastry store in the area, because I’m already spoilt for choice. Gelatos and Sorbets, are what Everton Creamery is up to.

The man behind this store left the finance industry for this ice cream parlor, ever since he was blown away by the double scoop of Chocolate Brownie Ice Cream from Ben and Jerry’s he had one day. Since then, he has been inspired to produce gelato of such standards for other people. I wish I would have such a spark of inspiration while eating ice cream.

The Place

I liked how the interior of Everton Creamery felt spick and modern, with the clear glass windows, wooden shelves and wide space just beside the counter. Photo 10-3-15 1 03 45 pmPhoto 10-3-15 1 07 51 pm The popcorn machine was the first thing that caught my eye when I stepped into the store. I understood from the owner that, he is trying to add popcorn to his gelato, inspired by the idea from honeycomb. Well.. I don’t know if that works, but he could probably make a little money from the popcorn by selling it to little children, as I witnessed 2 of them coming in and asking for popcorn.Photo 10-3-15 1 07 39 pm The empty shelves here will soon be used to sell hampers, flavored popcorn, as well as chocolates obtained from a supplier. I would have preferred them to convert this empty space to a sitting area, instead of selling these items though!

The Food

Everton Creamery boasts of 16 flavors of freshly made gelato, and I would suppose a lot of preparation time should be expected. Indeed, when i reached at 1pm yesterday, none of the gelato were ready for sale and the store front was empty, when they were supposed to start operating at 11am.
Photo 10-3-15 1 58 57 pm This was after an hour of waiting. Well.. At least from the wait, one thing could be said for sure is that, they do really make their gelato in house. Some of the 16 flavors include pistachio, dark chocolate, rocher and mango pineapple, just to state a few of their best-sellers. They go for $4 per scoop and $7 for 2 scoops. I like how the price does not vary for the “premium” flavors.

I tried almost all the flavors, and of course there were hits and misses, as there were a few flavors that are still undergoing some R&D, like the mojito sorbet.
Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset  Pistachio ($4) was the first flavor I tried. I am NEVER a fan of pistachio ice cream of any sort, even from the supposedly good ones like Creamier and Shrove Tuesday. I always thought they tasted a little weird. However, when i tried this scoop from Everton Creamery, I  was converted into a pistachio gelato lover. I am even craving for one now. It was so fragrant! There were still fresh pistachio bits within the gelato.

A disclaimer though, I am not a good judge of pistachio ice cream because I don’t have them often! I was just really impressed with this! 
Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset Dark Chocolate and Berry Cheesecake ($7): The hazelnut gelato tasted like nutella sprinkled with chocolate crunch within, while the berry cheesecake made me dream about having an entire of cheesecake in that flavor and consistency. I thought it would have been better if there were more crumbs within the scoop!
Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset Mango Pineapple ($4): A go-to option if you are looking for something thirst quenching and refreshing! They even have really sour option, such as the Berries flavor, to suit a vast range of flavor profile.

Closing Remarks

The gelato from Everton Creamery is definitely worth a try if you’re in the area, but not exactly worth a special trip down, for me. The gelato was rather smooth and consistent, however, nothing really stands out. It is one of the better and more affordable gelatos I’ve had, as compared to the commercial ones I have in shopping malls. However, I’ve had better, like that of Plus 39 Gelato on Circular Road.

Even though they may be young, there is no excuse for the unpreparedness I experienced on my visit yesterday. It may be a one-off hiccup, but I really hope that this doesn’t happen for anyone else. Moreover, in a haste to put the flavors out on display, they used the dark chocolate gelato from the previous day, and there were actually icicles in the gelato. A definite no go. Even after giving them the feedback, I didn’t see them removing it from the display. A huge turn off for me.

Despite the relatively above average gelato, it really makes me doubt about the sincerity that Everton Creamery has for its customers and the pride they have for their gelato. Like what they say, action speaks louder than words. BUT I shall not be too quick to judge. Yet.

    Hi, I’m Sean the owner of the Everton creamery. Your feed back is definitely something we will look into, especially on the ice particles on the dark chocolate a huge oversight on our part, a huge wake up call, probably no excuse for it.

    In regards to the misses of the flavor, we definitely will go back to the recipes and readjust for future flavors to bring the best for our customers.

    Lastly I appreciate ur constructive and honest feed back. Being new doesn’t give us an excuse for ill preparedness, we will strive to improve on our part. We hope to bring a moment of joy and happiness to our customers, when they are enjoying our gelato.
