Roji Monster Ice Cream is a new cafe in Tanjong Pagar to satisfy your late-night dessert cravings.

Their main offerings are cute Instagrammable ice-cream and waffles with a variety of toppings.

Hailing from Taiwan, the brand has a global presence in territories such as South Korea, the United States, Australia, China, Canada, and Malaysia.

Officially opened on Mar. 1, the Tanjong Pagar store is their first one in Singapore.

Monster Ice Cream

Adorned with googly eyes made of icing, the texture of this unique treat is described as something in between gelato and soft serve ice-cream.

Starting at S$12.90, the Monster Ice Cream is available in four different flavours -- Milk, Uji Matcha, Black Sesame, and Belgian Chocolate.

According to the Taiwanese website, the eyes were inspired by the Daruma roly-poly dolls.

Daruma dolls usually do not come with eyes, and you are supposed to paint each eye when a wish comes true.

For Hayao Miyazaki fans, the mascot bears a certain resemblance to the soot sprites in the famous Studio Ghibli animated films, "Spirited Away" and "My Neighbour Totoro".

Many toppings

To order, pick a flavour card and stamp two toppings of your choice.

The 23 toppings available include rice dumpling with brown sugar boba, matcha and taro balls, honeycomb, mini Dorayaki (Japanese red bean pancake), avocado puree, and roasted organic chestnuts.
