I knew about Alfero since their first shop was located at a corner of Marina Square. I am fond of their gelato since then. I am sure many are likewise. Now, Alfero Artisan Gelato has since re-located to the heart of Singapore shopping belt, Orchard Gateway.
The man behind Alfero Artisan Gelato, Marco Alfero, is an Italian who grew up eating gelato and even as his regular meal. Me too am one who does that at times does too. Lol! He ditched his profession as a Finance Manager for a Gelato Chef, a passion he holds since he was a kid. His first outlet was opened right after his training at the fame Gelato University of Carpigiani in Italy.
At Alfero Artisan Gelato, there are 3 guiding principles; Be Natural, Be Nice, Be Excellent. That’s explain the consistency in quality of all flavours anytime. Most of the ingredients were imported from Italy or Europe, except some of the local ingredients. And the interesting part about Alfero Artisan Gelato, you won’t be able to spot the physical gelato. They are all hidden within the pozzetto cabinet so as to maintain and ensure the best quality gelato is served to their customers.
At Alfero, both gelato and the sobert are offered. Each day there are about 2 dozen or so flavours for diners to choose from. Oh my, we are so spoiled for choice. It really complicate decision. Lol! The good news is that as all Gelato shop, diners could try before ordering.
I tried almost all the flavours. Most flavours were outstanding but there are a few which somehow I am dazzled, fall head over heels with. Pistachio and Bacio are my ultimate favourites. These two flavours were intense and yet not cloying. Next is the Yogurt and the Champagne (sobert) were refreshing.
The new flavour was the Raspberry Lychee Rose which was a little too sourish for me. I find it acceptable if I have it in a small quantity. Certainly not the entire scoop. The other new flavour was the Masala Vanilla.
Fresh with a varieties of flavours is how I would describe Alfero Artisan Gelato. I am sure everyone could find their favourite flavour or even flavours at this dedicated gelato parlour.
