Do you know of an F&B place that should be featured on Mothership? Tell us more at [email protected].

Heard of Uncle Vincent?

Known for his catchphrase "siao ah", Vincent Lim is the main character of his daughter Anna Lim's TikTok videos.

Fast forward to 2024, he's opened a brand new ice cream shop in MacPherson called Crazy Scoops, offering ice cream, waffles, savoury snacks, sodas and coffee.

The name is in line with his famous tagline, "siao ah" which translates to "crazy" in Hokkien.

Fulfilling Uncle Vincent's dream

Speaking with Mothership, Vincent's son-in-law Gerard Chng, explained that it's always been Vincent's dream to open an ice cream cafe.

He shared that people of all ages and from all over Singapore have come to the cafe hoping to catch a glimpse of Vincent.

Some even requested to hear his catchphrase in person.

He did tell us, however, that Vincent doesn't stay throughout the cafe's operating hours and the best time to catch him would probably be in the late afternoon.

The coriander ice cream is one of Crazy Scoops' most unique flavours.

There is a herbaceous aroma present, but it's light and complements the creamy vanilla base.

Also kind of reminds us of avocado.

It's fragrant, creamy, and comes in a pleasant pastel blue.

Waffles with ice cream

We've been told that Vincent's favourite flavour is Thai Milk Tea.

And we understand why, because the flavour is very gao.

There's also the limited edition Cclo-up Collagen flavour, made in collaboration with Cclo-Up, a wellness brand founded by influencer Cheryl Chin.

The collagen-infused ice cream contains cranberries and comes in bright fuchsia.

Moving forward, Chng said that Crazy Scoops is aiming to expand their menu and include more brand collaborations.
