Just a hop, skip and a jump away from Pavé Chocolates is Coccogelo, the latest newcomer on the artisan gelato scene in Singapore.The staff was great, very friendly and geniunely happy to let us sample all the flavours. And I didn’t sense even a teeny-weeny bit of impatience from them even though I took (as usual) a long time to decide on the ultimate flavours to get.I already had my heart set on a triple scoop but the thing is, after trying all the flavours available that day, I only really want
The staff was great, very friendly and geniunely happy to let us sample all the flavours. And I didn’t sense even a teeny-weeny bit of impatience from them even though I took (as usual) a long time to decide on the ultimate flavours to get.
I already had my heart set on a triple scoop but the thing is, after trying all the flavours available that day, I only really wanted Pistachio and Dark Chocolate (the rest was so-so to me). Then, my innocent question “there’s no Black Sesame today?” hit jackpot! Turned out that there’s a fresh batch of BS sitting in the kitchen, waiting to be sold the next day. Initially, the lady boss was adament and refused to sell it to me but after much pleading (haha), she relented, yay!
It’s rich and intense enough, and the texture is good, very creamy and smooth. So much so that I wish there’s some bits of nuts or something in it to cut through the smoothness. And the melting rate here is a little too high for my liking. Yes yes, I know authentic gelato melts faster because it has less milk fat etc etc but this was way too fast for me. But still, any ice cream/gelato (especially homemade ones) always make me happy!
In addition to the above-mentioned flavours, there’s Pina Colada, Strawberry, Coffee, Blueberry Cheesecake, Peanut Butter, Hazelnut, and Sweet Corn with Nutmeg~
Flavours change daily so it’s a matter of being at the right place at the right time if you want to try a particular flavour. Speaking of which, Coccogelo has some pretty interesting flavours. Blue cheese with Honey, anyone? How about Spiced Apple Curry (which is way too exotic for my tastebuds)? And there was Roasted Honey Pumpkin gelato over the Halloween weekend which I missed, argh!
FYI: Get your Piccolo (single scoop), Medio (double scoop) and Grande (triple scoop) for $3.80, $4.80 and $6.80 respectively.
