I’m always envious of people staying near a dessert café in their neighbourhood, especially an ice cream shop. It is so convenient and you can literally have it anytime you want (except when the shop is closed). Situated in the Macpherson neighbourhood, Alfero Gelato is an award-winning ice cream parlour that uses the finest quality ingredients from Italy. Additionally, the ice creams here are 96% FAT FREE, and that means you can eat more without feeling conscious about your weight.
Also, the staffs (two old ladies) are super friendly and it really makes your trip to the ice cream parlour very worthwhile. So, anytime you have an ice cream craving, you should know where to go now!
It feels so good to have so many different flavoured ice cream and you know they are 96% Fat Free! I don’t feel guilty at all!
Durian Gelato with Cone // $5.30
Sorry, I don’t take Durian at all but all my friends that tried this that day really liked it. Durian’s aroma was really strong. Let me know what you think! By the way, they use D24 to make the gelato!
Banana Passionfruit, Mango Sorbet & Coconut Sorbet // $4.50 each
The coconut and mango sorbet was really rich, refreshing and strong in flavour. Personally, the coconut sorbet caught my attention because of its aroma and aftertaste. Banana Passionfruit was surprisingly good, and both flavours complemented one another very well.
Dark Chocolate and Hokkaido Milk Gelato with Brownie // $8
The brownie was simple, not very fanciful and has a homely taste. It was also soft and moist. The Dark Chocolate stood out more for me because it was rich and very creamy. But it definitely paired well with the Hokkaido Milk Gelato. P/s: I’m not a milk person.
Pistachio, Bacio and Avocado Gelato with Waffle // $12
Waffle was a little weak here for me (I prefer crispy and buttery kind of waffles) unless you like eggy and fluffy waffles. Ice cream was really yummy, especially the avocado and pistachio. They were so addictive that I’ve to force myself to stop eating! The auntie is also so nice to draw such cute pictures and texts on the plate!
