(SPOT.ph) Everyone loves ice cream; not everyone can take the regular stuff due to possible allergies or personal aversions to dairy. But the dessert can be made with dairy alternatives—and when done right it can be dreamy in its own right! Take the stuff by homegrown brand Alt Scoops, for example, made with oat milk—which lends it a nutty taste and light but refreshing consistency that are perfect on a hot day. There's more where that came from, as Alt Scoops recently opened their own physical shop at The Podium.

Here's what you can order at Alt Scoops' physical ice cream shop:

Alt Scoops' The Podium outlet was co-created with design studio PINO Studio; as you'd expect they deliver in the visuals department, with the use of pastels on the counter and elsewhere around the space. Walk up to the said counter and you'll see a display of pints and bars of their ice cream (also referred to as gelato on the menu) that you can take home, as well as their array of flavors available by the scoop.

The Podium shop is also home to new and exclusive numbers. Try the Croffle (P120) a.k.a. Korea's trendy waffled croissant for a crisp-buttery bite, or the Brownie (P100) or Chocolate Chip Cookie (P100) if you're in for a decadent treat. Heck, go all out—you can opt to have a scoop of their ice cream (additional P100) or Soft-Serve (additional P75) on the side.
