More Reviews of good food at Venchi (Takashimaya)

Pistachio: not hard/solid enough and overly sweet
Chocolate: Good
Both melted too fast and are a little cloying. Overall 6.5-7/10, not worth $10 for a tiny cup.
I originally went for dark chocolate but was told that it’s out of stock on the day.

The Pistachio is probably the best I’ve had; natural tasting yet rich, it’s like you’re eating the actual nut. Their 75% Cuor di Cacao is also deeply sinful, while their Stracciatella is a lovely combination of creamy milk and chocolate shards. The Cremino and Gianduja are a must too if you love hazelnuts, but sadly the cup can only fit 3 flavours ($12). @venchi.singapore

Must Go👍🏼

Hidden in the basement of Takashimaya is this gelato place called Venchi. The gelato is made here in Singapore at their Paragon outlet using ingredients air flown from Italy. This is definitely my favourite gelato place, it’s definitely worth checking it out if you’re a fan of all things hazelnut!

My favourite picks whenever I am at Venchi, you just can't go wrong with the nutty and rich flavours. The consistency is also ultra smooth yet a tinge sticky, just how a good gelato should be.

If you think hard about it, $10.50 for a triple scoop of Venchi's delectable selection of premium quality and velvety ice-cream flavours is pretty worth it especially when you share it with a friend or two.

Had the Cremino Venchi, Pistschio and Strawberry Sorbet, all of which were really good, but my personal favourite would be the former because it has a really nice mix of vanilla and chocolate which results in a sweetness that's not too much, and I could gladly have this flavour all to myself. 🤣 The pistachio is the crowd favourite. Along with the other nutty flavours here, the pistachio flavour is really strong and earthy. The strawberry water-based sorbet tastes just like the fruit itself and it is super refreshing as well, somewhat like an ice-blended fresh fruit drink that is made with a generous amount of strawberries. If you're game for a (very) sour alternative, go for the lemon one!

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

Finally got to try ice cream from Venchi. Lemon (water-based sorbet with pure lemon juice from Sicily) and Giandujotto (from the traditional Venchi recipe, the perfect marriage of hazelnuts and chocolate). Also, Fragola (sweet strawberry water-based sorbet) and Cremino Venchi (the irresistible taste marriage of Piedmont P.G.J. hazelnuts and cocoa paste). Each cup costs $8.90. I particularly loved the Giandujotto which has chocolate shavings for that additional crunch and yet not too rich or sweet. #tingzieeats #burpple

I still can't resist Pistachio and Hazelnut although, they seem 'too nutty' for some. 😉 Satisfying, but I just noticed that they increased their prices. Sigh. 😔
You know you're too busy when a photo taken last week is just being uploaded today. 😁

A rich coffee flavour coupled with the smooth and creamy texture that Venchi's gelato is known for, made this thoroughly satisfying. By the way, I got this at their newest takeaway outlet at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands.

There are 10 available flavors, of which there's varying types of chocolate flavored ones like milk-based and hazelnut infused etc.
.
Azteco gelato is a dark chocolate water-based gelato. It's a luxuriously dark and rich gelato that doesn't contain milk. The gelato is really smooth, like gliding down your throat. The mango sorbet is just as intense and refreshing too. Seems like Takashimaya is getting more gelato competition there 😂

Burpple got me craving again.

A journey through the intense flavours of Venchi’s chocolate gelato range, I was immensely satisfied with my choices. The Giandujotto, which features a hazelnut base with chocolate swirls was well-balance just like our most loved chocolate - Ferrero Rocher while the Cuor di Cacao will fill your palate with the characteristic bitter undertone of dark chocolate. Though they melt surprisingly quick, the delicate yet rich cocoa flavour offers the all familiar Italian gelato delight that will win the hearts of any chocoholic. Delivering an incredible texture, Venchi range of chocolate gelato are really DA BOMB but their classic fruit gelato flavours are good too.

Ended the night on a good note with these velvety, luscious, bittersweet Cuor Di Cacao & Giandujotto (hazelnut with chocolate, tasting vaguely like Ferrero Rocher). Also got the light and milky Stracciattella, generously strewn with chocolate chips! Mmhmmmmm.

After hearing so much hype about this Italian gelato brand, I HAD to try some for myself. Got the Cuor Di Cacao (75% dark chocolate) and Hazelnut ($7.50 for a double scoop) and wow I fell with love with the incredibly smooth texture and richness. I guess I also chose the right pairing of flavours, for the bitter, decadent dark chocolate complemented the creamy, nutty Hazelnut really well!!! Definitely a must-try 💯💯💯

Seems like all the popular food around the world is slowly invading our shores. The gelato from Venchi reminds me of the smooth and rich gelatos I use to eat from Italy. Though they don't have the flavors I usually pick, they do serve a variety of equally tasty flavors such as pistachio, hazelnut, azteco ( water based chocolate) and milk based chocolate. They do offer free samples. After sampling, my favorite was definitely the azteco. The chocolate flavor was so rich, dark and intense that one scoop was not enough. In fact I could have 4 😂. One scoop goes for $5.90, medium with two scoops for $7.50. It's located at Takashimaya basement where all the food is. You can't miss it because it's right smack across GODIVA ❤️❤️❤️

Desperately in need of a luxurious gelato to melt the week days away. Was told the Hazelnut is the most popular flavour and boy, that nuttiness sans the overdose of sugar like other gelato places (this one is just nice) for a rocket ride to heaven. Best paired with their dark chocolate 😛

Tonight, I was craving for more! And so I traveled from Boon Keng to Orchard after school just to satisfy my cravings. 😫 I had Stracciatella in cone ($5.90/1 scoop). 😜 It is just amazing how can one craving gives you so much happiness and satisfaction, especially after a tiring Monday! 😂 Better start my week right with some gelato oh-oh-oh... 🍦🎶❤️

Thanks to @burpple's constant posts on Venchi, I finally headed down to get a taste of one of the best gelato ever. Venchi, strategically situated at Takashimaya B2, currently offers 10 flavours, with their distinct strength in chocolate and nuts flavours. Out of the 3 that I tried, I personally love their (pure) hazelnut flavour the most which was perfectly matched with the cuor di cacao (75% extra-dark chocolate). Not suprised that Venchi has won so many people's hearts because the texture of their gelato is the most ideal -- soft and milky with really rich flavour. I can see myself going back soon for more sweet treats!
