With outlets in MacPherson Lane, Marina Square and orchardgateway, gelato fans can look forward to more great tasting treats at ALFERO GELATO, so authentic, even the godfather approves of it! I was standing at the counter hoping to take a glimpse of the flavours but what caught my attention was the metal pots that resembles soup containers!
Made using only the finest quality ingredients imported from Italy and other parts of Europe, Alfero Gelato is stored in pozzetto cabinets where exposure to light and air is greatly reduced, thus ensuring the smoothness and quality of the ice cream. Marco believes in serving only the best-tasting gelato to his customers, which is why he is the only man in Singapore who keeps his gelato covered while on display (unlike other ice cream cafes which display their products in full glory while compromising on taste and texture of their creams).
Spoil yourself with a variety of classic Italian treats such as the best-selling Pistachio and Bacio (meaning “Kiss” in Italian – an amorous combination of chocolate, milk and hazelnut), as well as interesting local flavours such as mango and durian (an Italian man making durian gelato? You bet it’s gotta be awesome!).
The waffle is crispy on the outside and soft on the inside but we wish it tasted as good as it looks for we feel it is lacking a waffle taste. Presenting the best-selling Pistachio, raspberry rose and mango. DELICIOUS gelato and 96% FAT FREE! Yey!
We enjoyed every gelato and I had a hard time deciding which is my favourite! I kid you not! They even have special flavours from time to time; tiger beer and red bean! The tiger beer is amazing and I bet my beer drinking dad would agree with me too. The red bean gelato is yummy too and taste like the filling in a nice Japanese bun.
I had Hazelnut Affogato while my adventurous friends went for Durian Affogato and Raspberry Rose Affogato! In Malacca many of their locals love durian white coffee so it is no surprise that Durian Affogato tasted really delicious. While some of us like the Raspberry Rose Affogato, some doesn’t. Get adventurous and let me know which gelato you had for your Affogato?
