88 Limestone Street‚ Ipswich City

Ben Ungermann won fans across Australia as one of the stars of the 2017 Masterchef series. But it wasn’t only here that he found fame after finishing runner-up in the finale.

Ben is Ipswich born and bred but has Dutch heritage and garnered a following in The Netherlands, as well as India, South Africa and beyond.

He visited them on a 2018 world tour, while sourcing ideas for a cookbook, but it's Ipswich he still calls home and where he and brother Danny run the family business, Ungermann Brothers Ice-cream Parlour.

Tucked into the 88 Limestone heritage precinct, this sweet spot offers flavours you won’t find anywhere else. There’s a strawberry balsamic sorbet and lavender honeycomb. Pumpkin seed was an early favourite, along with coffee cardamom and lime and coconut. A Dutch spice offering is based on traditional speculaas.

Watch out for seasonal flavours such as carrot cake or blue cheese and fig. You can order ice cream in a cone or cup, or go all out and try the tasting plate of three flavours styled up in the manner of Masterchef creation.

Open Monday to Wednesday 11am-9pm; Thursday to Friday 11am-10pm; Saturday 10am-10pm and Sunday 11am-5pm.

Great place

Amazing choices, and a great style. Nice place to take the family for a snack. 5 out of 5 for tastes. A bit small on the inside though. more »
