Dense and luxurious with a lingering creamy mouthfeel, the gelato from Italian confectionery Venchi is the closest we can get to an idyllic Italian summer in Singapore. Pop by its stand in Takashimaya Food Hall (it's located near Godiva) and order a double scoop ($8.90, or $6.90 if you want to be modest with a single scoop). Trust us, too much of this gelato is still never enough. The Burpple community loves the Giandujotto, where the age-old combination of hazelnut and chocolate results in Ferrero Rocher-esque flavours that are absolutely decadent. Pair it with a chocolaty gelato like the bittersweet and chocolaty Cuor di Cacao or, for true blue chocolate connoisseurs, the Azteco, a rich water-based dark chocolate gelato made sans milk. The nutty flavours like Pistachio and Hazelnut are great too. Burpple Tastemaker Sheryl Lyx likes how the latter is nutty without being too sweet. Pro tip: It's worth checking out the other Venchi counter at Robinsons at the Heeren as they sometimes offer different flavours. Better yet, visit both and have a scoop at each!
Avg Price: $10 per person
