Alfero Gelato at Lorong Kilat


On a hot day some weeks back, I sampled some ice cream at Alfero Gelato with NicoleDaniel and Y. It was a good thing there were so many of us as we could barely finish the cups laid out before us.

Artisan Alfero Gelato
Nuts About You & Vanilla Gelato

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"

Our Alfero Gelato Challenge

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.

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.

Alfero Gelato's Raspbery Sorbet
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.
