Hosted in the cozy setting in Marina Square, a couple of bloggers chilled out to lovely gelatos on a lovely Sunday in April, at Alfero Gelato. About Alfero Gelato:Alfero Artisan Gelato is prepared with a mixture of high quality ingredients – milk, cream, sugar, eggs, fruits, chocolate, nuts, etc. with a high nutritional value. Italian gelato contains less fat than ice cream, has less incorporated air and is served at a higher temperature (-11 degree Celsius). Our gelato provides a greater flavour experience because there is less fat that coats the tongue, more flavour per spoonful (due to less air), and the taste buds are more alive since the temperature is not so cold as to numb the sensitivity. The lower fat content also means fewer calories to burn.Alfero Gelato is one of the 16 finalists in the Gelato World Tour's best gelato flavour competition, and that explains my excitement to try it! Here's a photo from Alfero Gelato, showing the man behind the gelato brand - Marco Alfero - and his gelato entry for the competition (right). (Photo credits to Alfero Gelato)A side note: Many hotels and Italian restaurants place orders for his gelatos as they like its quality and texture!Why are the tubs all closed? There's a special reason. The gelato tubs are kept closed to minimise their contact with air, light and the inconsistent temperatures. This helps to retain the quality of the gelatos. I started off with some hot chocolate. It's really smooth and not even that sweet. It's totally my style of how a good hot chocolate should be. When I tasted this, I knew that the chocolate gelato here was not going to disappoint. For the young ones - he's also done up a pure Milk Gelato flavour to suit the taste buds of children. It's really flavoured with milk, but it was too light for my tastebuds and I would still stick with the other flavoured gelatos.However, the brownie totally didn't make the mark for me, so I will focus on the gelatos instead.He is also very experimental with his products, and to appeal to the local market with the help of a staff, he came up with...Chendol Waffles paired with Chendol Merdeka Gelato! This gelato flavour was also the one which got him into the top 16 in the Best Gelato Flavour Competition.Combining the fragrance of coconut milk, freshly squeezed pandan juice, flavourful gula melaka, velvety red beans and smooth chendol (green starched jelly), Chendol Merdeka Gelato is created to commemorate Singapore’s 50th Birthday, which also explains why the word ‘Merdeka’ is added to the name, and the love for local food by the locals.It was an interesting idea, and the gelato was really lovely! But I personally feel that the waffles should be crispier.Here are the various gelato flavours we tried!Tested Flavours (Not in order): Pistachio, Dark Chocolate, Yuzu, Passion Fruit, Durian, Strawberry Sorbet, Avocado, Mango, Chendol, Walnut and Bacio (Hazelnut and Chocolate)My favourite flavours are the pistachio (although I'm not a pistachio person!), dark chocolate, yuzu, mango and avocado! Be sure to try these flavours when you drop by.Looking from the photo above, were you able to spot the pistachio? No, it's not the cup in the front row, spotting a brighter green. Their pistachio ice cream colour is a slightly dirtier green because there's absolutely no colouring used in his gelatos.The Pistachio ice cream is hidden here! The green one in the front row is Avocado Marco sources and imports the ingredients used in his gelatos from Italy. You can be sure that you're getting the best from your 'simple' cup of gelato, as the distinctive ingredients are from the best parts of the country. To put it simply, for example, he'll only import from the place in Italy which spouts best pistachios! So much effort goes into a scoop, and only natural ingredients are used, that's why I love their gelato. Another thing I like about their gelatos are that there's no gum added in the ice-cream, that's why it melts faster than other ice-creams.MELTING~!Finally, my points go to Alfero Gelato as they only sport 2% to 9% fat, as opposed to ice-cream, which has about 18% to 30% fat in it! I'm sure this will be a huge score point for the girls! Girls, time to enjoy!

Recently Singapore Press Holdings has a promotion for its SoShiok app users, where they treated to free gelato at Alfero Artisan Gelato in Marina Square Shopping Mall which quite well known for its homemade Italian gelato. Within 2 hours, 500 people has claimed the free gelato. The range of gelato is limited but looks great. The queue moves quite fast. I have selected chocolate which is quite thick and creamy. Tastes very nice and not too sweet. continue reading

Have been recommended to this shop for gelato, so I decided to give it a go. I selected their pistachio single scoop ice cream in a cup ($4.50). The scoop was bursting with rich nutty pistachio flavor, something that is usually missing in other ice cream joints. The ice cream texture was also soft but it's densely packed into a cup. Will definitely try other flavours in future! continue reading

A very classic café located at Marina Square. Famous of Handmade Italian ice-creams, it was awarded as best Gelato Café in South East Asia. I just came to know the metal containers available inside the café were actually for the purpose of keeping ice-cream in good condition without affected by constant exposure to air and light. No wonder their ice-creams were dense, soft, creamy and best tasted. Low fat guaranteed, use of natural ingredient and high quality fresh milk, it was healthier choice and guilt-free. $9.50 for 2 scoops and waffle, it was worthwhile. continue reading

My friend and i was craving for something sweet and cooling after a movie at Marina Square and we chanced upon this shop located beside Killiney cafe. We decided to order a waffle with 2 scoops of gelato to share ($11.90). After testing a few flavours, my friend settled on one of their bestseller, Nuts About You - a mixture of nougat, hazelnuts and almonds. I took their new flavour- Melon, as i love fruity flavours.The waffle took some time to come but it was definitely worth the wait. The waffle was crispy on the outside but fluffy and mosit on the inside. It has a nice egg taste and was not too sweet so it paired really well with the sweet gelato. We love how the warm waffle melts the gelato and soaked them up. The flavour 'Nuts About You' has a rich nutty flavour which i found out comes from using real premium nuts sourced from overseas. The 'Melon' flavour tasted very natural and i could bite into small pieces of real melon in it. This is definitely a gelato shop worthy of trying. continue reading
