Alfero Gelato at Lorong Kilat
The outlet at Lorong Kilat is the latest addition following the other 2 outlets that Italian Finance Manager turned entrepreneur Marco Alfero has opened on our sunny tropical island. We started with "Nuts About You - Hazelnut, Nougat & Almond" and "Vanilla"
The insanely hot and humid afternoon sun was causing our gelato to melt really quickly. Marco explained that the Italian gelato served at Alfero Gelato is prepared with high quality ingredients and contain less fat than ice cream. In addition, as less air is incorporated into gelato than ice cream during the preparation process, the flavours seem richer as gelato is packed with more ingredients in every scoop.Pistachio Gelato
We sampled a variety of flavours but my favourite ones were the Avocado, Pistachio and Raspberry Sorbet. A new flavour, the Avocado Gelato (light green one at the top of the previous picture) was rich with the buttery flavour of fresh avocados. In contrast the Pistachio flavour was interesting as the pistachios had a lovely roasted flavour that added a smoky dimension to the distinctively nutty flavour of pistachios.Raspberry Sorbet
If you're into lighter choices, my vote's for the Raspberry Sorbet. Light, slightly tart without being excessively sour, this was refreshing especially on a hot and humid afternoon.Alfero Gelato at Lorong Kilat (New outlet) 21 Lorong Kilat #01-01 Singapore 598123 Telephone: +65 6463-3835 Operating Hours: Sunday to Thursday: 12 noon to 11 pm Friday & Saturday: 12 noon to 12 midnight Alfero Gelato at Marina Square 6 Raffles Boulevard, #02-226A/B Marina Square Singapore 039594 Telephone: +65 6338-5828 Operating Hours: Daily: 12 noon to 10 pm Alfero Gelato at MacPherson Lane 81 MacPherson Lane #01-37 Singapore 360081 Telephone: +65 6848-4269 Operating Hours: Tuesday to Sunday: 12 noon to 9 pm Closed on Mondays.
