While exploring the Kampong Glam enclave on a hot, sunny afternoon, cool down and treat yourself to a refreshing scoop of Italian ice cream at aROMA, a new takeaway shop on Arab Street that serves up Gelato.
This humble gelato store features an alluring array of flavours that many might find usual in comparison to its other Italian ice cream counterparts. Be dazzled by the likes of their Chocolate Chili, Strawberry with Mint, Watermelon and Lemon with Basil—all of which happen to be heavy hitters among regulars.
The best part is, all their ice cream is made daily in-house using only fresh and natural ingredients.
The fabulous folks at aROMA pride themselves with only using the best and freshest ingredients to make their gelato—from fruits, nuts and herbs to the type of milk they use. Experimental as they may be in crafting their ice cream, they try to keep things subtle so as to allow the natural flavours of each respective ingredient to shine.
Beyond gelato in cones or cups, aROMA also has a variety of gelato sundaes available as part of their La Torta series as well as the Sorbetto Frappè—essentially an ice-blended beverage comprising of sorbet as a primary component.
Alternatively, you can also pair your gelato with coffee in an Affogato. Featuring a scoop of premium gelatos such as the classic vanilla or coconut, with a shot of espresso made with freshly roasted arabica-blend coffee beans, what you end up with is a sweet chilly treat that comes with a delightful hit of caffeine.
If you happen to find yourself around the Orchard Road area, aROMA also has another outlet that recently opened up in Plaza Singapura with seats and waffle options.
