After a round of soft serve and yoghurt, today is gelato time.This place is not too difficult to locate with this big gelato cone display. Once you step into the shop, you will instantly be captivated by the renovation that makes you feel so comfortable.Flavours of the day are written on the blackboard that is placed opposite the cashier counter for easy reference.Enjoy their gelato on its own in a paper cup ranging from S$5.50 to S$9.50 nett or have it with sandwich at S$8.50+ for 1 scoop or S$11.50+ for 2 scoops.Waffles are in their menu too. Waffle with 1 scoop is available at S$10+ but we went for 2 scoops instead.Waffle + 2 Scoops (S$13+)Waffles are made upon ordering so have to wait a little while for it to be served. Waffle is crispy on the outside with a soft textured centre.The flavours we chose today are Hazelnut and one of their new flavour - Banana Choc Chips. Their gelato is very strong in flavour and melts rather fast. The banana taste in the banana choc chips gelato is so strong its a little overpowering which makes the choc chips presence not felt. The hazelnut taste fabulous and goes well with the waffle.Couldn't decide on the flavours? Approach the friendly staff for sampling before making your choice. continue reading

Housed in a heritage shop house, +39 Gelato Bar prides itself in serving the first live, state-of-the-art gelato concept in the Asia Pacific region. Lovingly made fresh every day, the different gelato flavours are 100% natural, using premium and exquisite ingredients sourced both locally and from the home of gelato, Italy. +39 Gelato Bar ensures that no added flavorings, colours, preservatives or chemical additives are added to keep up with gelato’s reputation as a 100% healthy and delectable pleasure (Only natural stabiliser is used here).It's not hard to spot them with the prominent gelato cone right outside the shopfront.Gelato flavors of the day differs daily and will be listed at the counter.Step right into this boutique-styled gelato bar is at its finest with its clean-cut homely deco yet rewarding customers with a wallet-friendly pricing.Here, we have Jacopo Quaglia, Director & Gelato Coach at +39 Gelato Bar Gelato who gave us a brief on the origin and 'benefits' of gelato are. To quote Jacopo, he compared gelato as akin to 'Pill food without having to chew and simply let your mind fly'. That's the gelato experience +39 Gelato Bar wants you to leave with by the time you step out of the shop. and we had Stefano Cadorin; gelato chef of +39 Gelato Bar as well with us. We were next treated to some very interesting live demonstrations of their gelato creation.Using state-of-the-art IdeaTre machine from Carpigiani, the manufacturer of world-class gelato equipment has been brought into Asia for the very first time and you can now witness the combination of the highest quality ingredients mixed and frozen right into the smoothest, finest most delicious gelato in Singapore.These are the IdeaTre machine behind the smooth cool gelato.Vanilla Gelato from +39 Gelato Bar are made purely from Vanilla Beans with no added vanilla essence whatsoever.I kid you not for their gelato were really velvety smooth, just swallow and savour the delectable flavors. Put the gelato in your mouth and it melts to heaven.Gelato needs to be create fresh daily and here's a tip: if you see a 'mountain' of gelato on display in stores, they are probably not very fresh as gelato can only be kept fresh for 3 days.Each day, only small volumes are produced to ensure freshness. Quality assurance. We FELL IN LOVE with the Creamy, cool texture of the gelato.This taste was really something I have not tasted in Singapore. Yet.Now you can get your Italian Gelato fix right at home, isn't it awesome that the good people from Itaty are finally here to bring us authentic creations. Thank YOU!GRAZIE!!! Do you know?In Europe, Gelato artisans make gelato nutritious and often have gelato as a meal replacement! Sounds wonderful right?! Of course Asians are still not used to this idea yet but Jacopo went on to explain how the nutrients come about: Cream provides fats, fruits provides fiber, nuts protein and of course there's sugar. Aren't you happy now? Good news for ladies: Gelatos are less fattening than ice cream with 10% lesser cream and butter. Rejoice for more!!Meanwhile the chefs were in the midst of creating the Frozen Aperol Spritz Sorbet.Of course, this creation involves Aperol- an Italian Spirit with 11% alcohol content. Topped with the sorbet and there you have it! Served by Jacopo ( He's really friendly in fact. )The Frozen Cocktail range, which includes the Frozen Aperol Spritz, is selling at $14 (before GST) per serving. During Happy Hours (daily, 6-8pm ), it is going for $10 nett. Take Heed for some early Cheers! Next up, we had the Waffles with two scoops of gelato.Selling at $13 (before GST).There you have it!! The aesthetically pleasing Waffles with Gelato!! Definitely Instagram-able. Here we have the mango and chocolate flavors.What's so special you say?The awesomeness lies in the Waffles! Unlike most which turn soggy when in contact with ice creams, their waffles remain crisp and fluffy warm with the gelato. Keep up the good work. and square shaped waffles definitely works for me.Next combination is the Hazelnut and Pistachio which was a delightful happiness combo of my favorite flavors with +39 Gelato Bar. Of course the accompaniment with the yummy waffles help too.Another artisanal gelato creation. Creative selections on the menu also includes the Gelato Sandwich (1 scoop at S$8.50+ , 2 scoops at S$11.50+).Met the lovely gals- Jas, Jessie and Meryl and had a great time with them.
