#03-23 Plaza Sin­ga­pura, 68 Or­chard Road, tel: 6837-0650. Open week­days, 10.30am10.30pm; week­ends and pub­lic hol­i­days, 8am-10.30pm. “When I was grow­ing up, my par­ents al­ways took my two sib­lings and me to Swensen’s for birth­day treats. We would or­der the Fire­house – a big bowl filled with scoops of ice cream and other condi­ments. The waiter would light a flame on the ice cream pile and we’d make a birth­day wish be­fore blow­ing it out. Now that we’re all mar­ried with our own kids, we’ve re­tained this fam­ily tra­di­tion.

Apart from the desserts, my par­ents’ favourite food at Swensen’s is the soup served in sour­dough bread bowls – they find joy in tear­ing off bits of bread to dip into the soup. It’s the sim­plic­ity of the place that they find en­dear­ing.” – An­nie Rasi, 44, sec­re­tary
