Verve @ Clarke Quay is a small pizza and gelato bar that comes from the original Verve Bar & Bistro at Gillman Heights. Come to think of it, I wouldn't really think of it as a bar even, since it's all pretty much al fresco with a few tables and high stools along one of the busier lanes of Clarke Quay. I would have tried the pizzas if I had room for it, but after after a good dinner at Borgata me and Ms Sugar wanted something sweet to wrap up the night. Gelato it is :)
Tiramisu and Coconut Gelato
The Coconut gelato was pretty alright, but I would have preferred it to have an even stronger flavour. Comparatively, the awesome White Choconut (white chocolate and coconut!) from Galta Gelato at Parca Marina Bay is much creamier and richer. Still, the Tiramisu gelato from Verve was quite impressive, since not only was the coffee flavour discernible enough, but it also had generous little pieces of liquer-soaked savoiardi within it.
Vanilla Cognac and Pistachio & Green Tea Gelato
The cup at the back belonged to Ms Sugar, who gave in to her fondness for vanilla and chose the Vanilla Cognac. The hint of cognac was too light though, with negligible after-taste dryness that many alcohol ice-creams or gelato would usually have. At least Ms Sugar seemed to enjoy her Pistachio & Green Tea gelato much more!
Excellent. Very patient and friendly as we took our time sampling the variety of flavours.
