Frigidarium at the Market Street Carpark has seen many rave reviews online, and being the ice-cream and gelato lover that I am I was naturally quite curious on how the gelato here would fare. Thus far, only old-school Venezia gelato seems to have made an impression, while places like Galta Gelato at Parco Marina Bay seems to be veering more towards ice-cream than gelato. Of course, if you're looking for a good tiramisu gelato, you might like to try Verve Gelato at Clarke Quay. Hungry yet? :)
Frigidarium is good, take my word for it. The gelato here is delicious, the texture is quite close to the original, and the wide variety of flavours is just so enticing. I really liked my order of Hazelnut and Sakura (first picture), especially since the latter is something new to me (I know some of you may have already tried Japan's Sakura ice-cream) and it tasted refreshingly good. The hazelnut admittedly paled in comparison and was overwhelmed by the Sakura flavour. The best friend meanwhile enjoyed her rich Dark Chocolate (above) quite a bit, but liked the Italian Pistachio even more.
Three's not a crowd, not when you get to sample more flavours. In fact, we had a total of eight different scoops for the afternoon alone. Wei Jie decided to go all adult with his Malaga and alcohol-infused Bailey's, but I thought Lynette's Pineapple & Coconut and Passionfruit were a bit better because of the fresh and fruity taste. All-in-all, pretty good gelato, though I do hope that Frigidarium doesn't get carried away with producing too many new flavours and ending up with more ice-cream than gelato.
