Italian chocolate and gelato brand Venchi opens another outlet at Marina Bay Sands. The other branch is at Takashimaya basement Ngee Ann City.
Venchi is said to avoid industrial bases when producing their ice-cream, using fresh ingredients and quality fruits and chocolate.
One of the ways to look out for good gelato is when the colour is more natural, closer to the ingredients used. Not artificially and vividly coloured.
I couldn’t help but notice the price was quite steep (yes, I know this is MBS) – $8.90 for a regular cup, $10.50 for a large cup, $49.50 for a 1kg take away.
Whipped cream and grains at additional $1.
Flavours supposedly including Cuor Di Cacao, Hazelnut, Pistachio, Azteco, Cremino Venchi, Lemon, Cappuccino, Strawberries and Vanilla.
However, there was only Dark Chocolate and Lemon left (wah, business so good?) so I couldn’t try more.
Dark Chocolate was still deep, slightly bitter and intensely flavoured, one of the better ones around. Lemon was all right (could be less icy) and was a suitable contrast.
Also, serving size was smaller than usual.
So loved the taste, not so over the moon with the price and portion.
