- Finest Italian gelato indulgence in Singapore: +39 Gelato Bar is essentially on a crusade for introducing the best gelato flavours to the Far East. And it is done in haute style no less. The gelati are always made on-site and come out in fresh batches of tubs with no preservatives, artificial flavourings, or food colouring added into the mix!
- Dazzling selection of frozen cocktails: If the waffle and ice cream duo bores you, then this kind of adults-only concept might keep you interested in +39 Gelato Bar. Imagine any of these flavours - Spritz Aperol Sorbet, Lychee Sorbet Martini, Lime Sorbet Mojito, Frozen Margarita and Frozen Pina Colada - are available on the day of your visit? It is just wow. Eating Aperol sorbet is like having a glass of Aperol Spritz but in its frozen version – the Aperol is mixed with Prosecco wine and garnished with a slice of orange. Has a bitter after-taste but so does any cocktail drink!
- A round lid to close-off the bin: This may be a minor detail but lids can actually contribute to keeping the gelato fresh and flavourful all day. It does what it does best – to seal the freshness of a gelato’s natural ingredients. For many Italians, selling gelato doesn’t need visuals because they primarily care about the gelato’s overall quality, anyway.
- You’re free to add a topping of your choice: Whether a dose of chocolate syrup or a cocktail, you are more than welcome to spice up your gelato experience. Simply ask the chef to add some toppings to your order, or better yet, ask for an expert’s advice!
