Pssst... Let me let you in on a little secret. There's a new gelato haven in town, and while I may not have a commanding voice on gelato per se, this is certainly one of the very best gelati I've ever tried. Galta Gelato at Parco Marina Bay is how I would personally envision the real deal to be like, with the gelato being all rich, milky and creamy. A fantastic model of this would be the Stracciatella (pictured above), which features smooth, creamy milk gelato with tiny chocolate balls for the slightest crunch in every bite.
The other scoop I had, the White Choconut, is a new and unique introduction that Galta claims "is better than sex". I think the combination of white chocolate with coconut is enough to make some of you sweet toothed people out there go weak in the knees. The coconut taste is not exactly over-powering, which makes the overall flavour quite balanced. A must try.
For now, Galto Gelato Italiano at the new Parco Marina Bay is only a takeaway counter, but I can foresee them adding a couple of chairs and tables soon for patrons and converts alike to enjoy their gelato. Look out for the Mizuno section within the mall and you'd find your gelato spot (yeah, eat gelato, and then contemplate exercising) with it's interesting revolving fridge. There's the authentic egg yolk-based custard flavours too, if you're interested ;)
$4.50 for a double scoop.

I definitely have negligible encounters with the real gelato, not till the end of the month at least. Till then, I choose not to think about what it should be like, and instead I'd just focus on enjoying how it tastes :)
