A little while ago, we announced on Facebook that Sophia, who had been a big part of The Garden Slug, was taking a break to explore her interests in other businesses and activities. There was an amicable parting of ways and we wished her all the best.

And guess what, the best has come! We’d like to introduce Sophia’s latest business venture called “The Factory”.
Not to be confused with Andy Warhol’s studio, this dessert shop on the ground floor of a 40-year-old shophouse serves hand-crafted ice cream with alcohol-flavoured toppings, edible fruit sodas, chocolate tarts and french fries with eyebrow-raising artisanal dips like laksa pesto with roasted cashew, curry mustard aioli, spicy melted tomato with chinchalok, and Marmite honey aoioli. Ice cream flavours can be customised; call three days ahead. -TimeOut Singapore
