World Gelato Tour 2.0 at Marina Bay Sands Convention Centre

Being someone with a sweet tooth, Gelato World Tour is something that I cannot miss.

The second edition of Gelato World Tour was held at Marina Bay Sands Convention Centre, Singapore as Asia’s first Gelato Capital. The Gelato Village is set to flag off the “Formula One of Gelato” and celebrate fifty years of the Singapore Republic in the coolest way.

Gelato World Tour is the first international traveling competition in search of the best flavors in the world, is directed by the prestigious Carpigiani Gelato University and Sigep, the most important exhibition in the world for the artisan production of gelato, pastry, confectionery and bakery products held in Rimini Italy. 

Entry to the Gelato Village is free or all visitors. Visitor can purchase the Gelato Ticket for 12 SGD at the Info Point tent (for 8 samples) and enjoy the magical world of gelato.

There are a total of 16 Gelato artisans taking part in Gelato World Tour. With their vast experience and expertise, they produced a sumptuous array of flavors with nutritious potential in it.

At our first stop, Antonino Lo Iacono from Australia.
I tried the Lemon Zest with Fig Marmalade & Dark Chocolate. With just one bite, I was blown away by the taste of the gelato. The sweetness of the gelato was just right, well balance by the lemon zest and dark chocolate. One of my 2 favourite gelato tasted.

Trying out the Loving Date from Stefano Cadorin, Singapore.
The distinguishing ingredients are Tofu, Tahini, Dates, Balsamic Vinegar, Coconut Cream. 

The fusion of the flavours are really overwhelming.

Dropped by Singapore Sling, created by Charles Tan from Singapore. 
An inspiration on a renowned signature cocktail made by our very own Singapore’s famous mixologist of the “The Long Bar” of the Raffles Hotel.

With ingredients like Fresh pineapples, Grenadine syrup, Gin, Cherry liquor, Orange liquor, Benedictine and Sugars, the gelato tasted refreshing and chilling.

They were all unique and sumptuous.

Croccante alla Fragola by Mirko Stortini, Vietnam. 
This gelato is another favourite of mine. Egg-cream flavored with cinnamon, varied with crystals crunched almonds and strawberry. Unique and delicious. How I wish my stomach have room for another cup of this.

Kopi Fah Sung Thong by Angsna Dhippayom from Thailand.
This gelato is made from a combination of Kopi(coffee) and Fah Sung Thong (peanut candy). By combining the bitter unsweetened taste of Kopi with the crunchy mix of nuts and sesame, and enriching it with caramelized sugar, it brings back memories of romantic times in traditional kopi tiam coffee shops in Southeast Asia.

Even the trash bin at Gelato Village looked so cute and delicious.

Mango Ube Symphony by Zarah Zaragoza-Manikan from Philippines.
The mooth mango gelato is heightened with swirls of purple yam jam and accented with rhum-soaked dried mango strips. A truly unique, irresistible symphony of flavors!

Chendol Merdeka by Marco Alfero from Singapore.

Chendol is one of Singapore's traditional dessert rich in flavor, strong in character. Combining the fragrance of Coconut milk, freshly squeezed Pandan juice, flavorful Gula Melaka, velvety red beans and smooth chendol (green starched jelly), Chendol Merdeka Gelato tasted just like our Chendol dessert, perfect for the sunny days in our bustling city.

Kochi Popz by Chronos Chan & Eunice Soon from Singapore.
Using Yuzu specially flown in from Kochi Japan, this light gelato is filled with chocolate coated pop rocks, which sizzles when chewed.

I have a yummilious time tasting the different signature flavours of gelato made by the best Gelato Artisans of Asia Pacific.

Thanks Meryl for the group photo. 
Glad that we came in a group so that we can share the gelato and savour more flavours.
