Alfero Gelato: Even the Godfather loves it!

I’m not really sure who the Godfather is…but I’m with him on this one.

Just a side note, I’m guessing the Godfather refers to Marco Alfero, the man behind the delicious gelato. Apparently he loved eating gelato since he was a kid, in fact, he still loves gelato as much today.

Located along Lorong Kismis, near the row of shops such as Carpenter and Cook as well as Nook DIY House of Pancakes, Alfero Gelato is quite easy to miss out. While they may not have as many customers, since U.D.D.E.R.S has a more prime location, their gelato doesn’t fail to please.

Their tubs of gelato are covered, unlike most ice-cream eateries where the tubs are open for all to see. Here, they only open the cover when you ask for a sample, or to scoop your gelato for you.

They even offer the option of cart rental for your events. Want a rustic looking cart to serve up gelato for your guests? Just give the Godfather a call! This is a brilliant addition to any party, I mean, who can top a gelato cart? It’s great for all ages, and will get your guests all excited.

Here’s a little sneak preview at what I ordered. Any guesses for what flavor it is?

I sampled a few other flavors as well, one of them being Avocado. I was rather impressed by the creaminess of the gelato, considering that there is no cream used. Here, they offer the option of Premium Flavors such as Pistachio and Tiramisu, but you’ll have to fork out a little more for them.

They even serve fudgey looking brownies, which I didn’t have a chance to try. These generous slices of brownies look so dense, I can just imagine how chewy they will be. I’ll be back to try these!

Pistachio (Premium) Gelato and Chocolate Gelato.
The serving cups here are rather small, but the gelato is generously piled on, so don’t worry about feeling unsatisfied. Gelato is very rich, so a small amount is enough to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Chocolate Gelato
The chocolate flavor was very pronounced in this. I liked the full-bodied flavor, which made me feel like I was eating a high-quality piece of chocolate, like Royce Chocolate. Because it’s very rich, I suggest you savour this slowly, with a glass of water, rather than wolfing down huge mouthfuls.

Pistachio Gelato
Oh my, this was heavenly. The pistachio flavor was clearly there, without being overpowering, and the gelato was incredibly smooth and creamy. It was just as rich as the Chocolate Gelato, but the pistachio flavor was so well brought out, I was very impressed.

When you eat gelato, really take a moment to enjoy it. Slowly savour each mouthful, and taste the love and quality of the ingredients used. As the cold, creamy goodness enters your mouth, marvel at the smoothness of the gelato…Now, feel it sliding down your throat, the sheer perfection of the rich decadent dessert you were craving for. Pause to enjoy the lingering after taste. None of that chemical, sugary backwash, just pure gelato heaven.

As you can see above, gelato is a healthier choice when compared to ice cream, since it is denser as less air is incorporated into it. Even though cream isn’t used, Gelato tastes even creamier and richer than ice cream. Although the portions are slightly smaller, with such great quality, you won’t miss your ice cream one bit. Alfero Gelato has done a brilliant job in creating such a velvety smooth texture, and full-bodied taste. Do yourself a favor and walk a few shops down from U.D.D.E.R.S to try Alfero Gelato instead. Your tastebuds will thank you.

  1. The brownies aren’t as dense as it looks but they do have a very nice hazelnut flavour and hazelnut bits inside. It’s surprisingly delightful.
