[Media Tasting] Plus +39 Gelato Bar

Was invited to +39 Gelato Bar tasting session last night and am really in love with the rustic ambience with modern furnishing! A nice place to relax in one of Singapore’s bustling eclectic zone comprising office towers, high end restaurants, alfresco dining and lively bars & pubs.

+39 Gelato Bar opened its door in the vibrant Boat Quay district of Singapore in March 2015 and is set to indulge customers and all gelato lovers with the real taste of Italian indulgence and into the world of artisanal gelato!

Unlike ice-cream, fresh Italian gelato contains less fat (less cream/ butter), has less incorporated air (which means higher volume), and is served at a higher temperature which provides a greater flavor experience!





Flavours change regularly but there are four fixed flavours daily and 'today's special' will be listed in the front counter as well as on screen,

Chef Jacopo Quaglia and Chef Stefano Cadorin friendly introduction to us. :)
