Note Di Silicia caught my eyes as I was walking along Quayside Isle after dinner, with its bold monochrome tiles and its attractive teacup-prints counter. I walked in and discovered that it was a gelato specialty shop. Instead of the usual inviting fridge displays for gelato, the ones here were well-hidden in metal tubs, buried into the counter table. The only clue as to what flavours are offered are the rather clumsy, DIY signs.
I was told that the gelato flavours change on a daily basis as new batches are freshly-made every day. Traditional techniques are employed to create gelato that does not contain any colouring, preservatives and artificial flavouring. All water, milk and ingredients have been carefully sourced.
Each waffle cone starts from $8, while cup starts from $10. I ordered a $12 cone, which entitled me to 2 flavours. Dark Chocolate and Chestnut were my pick! The former was pure indulgence – it was almost like eating frozen dark chocolate, melted, while the latter was their signature flavour. Indeed, the chestnut flavour was very subtle, yet sufficient to taste, hence perfectly complementing my Dark Chocolate gelato. I like how the gelati are not too sweet, maintaining the taste of the main ingredients in its purest forms. The waffle cone had a unique milk taste; definitely one of the better ones around. Despite the premium price, no doubt the best and freshest ingredients are used in the making of the gelato. My only gripe is that the gelati melted very quickly, though not a problem if you aren’t taking any photos.
Alfresco area with colourful, lit-up tables.
Note Di Silicia treats their gelato with high dignity. I have also recently discovered that Capella Hotel is serving their gelato. So if you ask me, yes, it’s definitely worth a try!
