It’s finally here! Aqua S opened its door of its first Melbourne store in QV a bit over two weeks ago, and apparently there are already lines forming! The ice cream store is quite small, with its classic instagrammable blue and white wall, opposite the wall space that is filled with polaroids, and a few small tables if you wish to eat in store. There are plenty of seats in QV though, so that isn’t a problem.
I wanted to try something simple to test out the flavours, before I dive into the whole fairy floss and marshmallow scene. The sea salt is a permanent flavour at Aqua S, and I really liked it! The sweet and savoury soft serve was extremely smooth, and didn’t melt too quick either.
There are also a few additional flavours that rotate every two weeks, and we tried out the pandan one. For those of you who don’t know, pandan is pretty much like Asian vanilla, and it is a flavour that is often overshadowed by matcha in my opinion. The pandan soft serve was a milder counterpart to the sea salt, and was equally delicious.
At a reasonable price point, with flavours that change quite often, and a convenient location, I can see myself returning to Aqua S on a quite regular basis! I definitely want to try out some of the toppings on my next visit.
How to get there:
Aqua S is located on level 1 of QV, which is right opposite Melbourne Central.
